** Unified Help me build my Rig Thread (Sample builds on page 5000/Do not ask/mention seller or store name)

  • @adobosunrise
    mga sir ano po ba maganda build for intel i5 6600k base sa mga nabasa ko dito at mga advices nyo po aosolete na ang haswell proc my budget is between 60-70k

    Hi sir here is a sample Skylake build for Php 70K:

    Skylake Core i7-6700 Non-OC Build
    CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 = 15,300.00 (bundle)
    HSF: Noctua NH-U12S = 2,800.00
    MOB: Gigabyte GA-H170-Gaming 3 = 7,650.00 (bundle)
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB DDR4-2400 CL14 = 4,200.00
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 64MB (WD10EZEX) = 2,499.00
    SSD: Crucial BX100 250GB SATA (CT250BX100SSD1) = 4,300.00
    VGA: Palit Geforce GTX 980 TRIO 4GB GDDR5 256-Bit = 24,000.00
    PSU: Seasonic M12II-620 EVO 620W 80+ Bronze = 3,680.00
    ATX: Fractal Design Define S Window Edition = 4,990.00
    ============
    TOTAL = 69,419.00


    Actually viable parin ang Haswell build as long as wala ka ng plans to upgrade to the processor or may plans ka to upgrade the processor in the short term. I would suggest i-sagad mo yung CPU spec sa Haswell build para it will last you beyond Skylake ~ Kabylake and yung next CPU upgrade will be after 3-4 years na.

    Haswell Core i7-4790K OC Build
    CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K = 16,560.00 (bundle)
    HSF: Noctua NH-U12S = 2,670.00
    MOB: ASUS Z97-PRO WiFi ac = 5,500.00 (bundle)
    RAM: G.Skill TridentX 2x4GB DDR3-2400 CL10 = 3,610.00
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 64MB (WD10EZEX) = 2,480.00
    SSD: Crucial BX100 250GB SATA (CT250BX100SSD1) = 3,999.00
    VGA: ASUS GTX 980 STRIX 4GB GDDR5 256-Bit = 24,990.00
    PSU: Seasonic G-650 650W 80+ Gold = 4,570.00
    ATX: Fractal Design Define S Window Edition = 4,990.00
    ============
    TOTAL = 69,369.00

    Notes:
    - The price of the Skylake processor is with a motherboard so you have to buy the processor and motherboard from the same shop
    - There is a good possibility to overclock the Core i7-6700 with a Z170 motherboard. I suggest wait for reviews on the new processor before deciding to buy it over Core i7-6700K.
    - We can upgrade the videocard on both builds to a GTX 980 Ti by not including the SSD

    Hope this helps :-)
  • @just3n21
    Sir, kung itong version ng gtx 960? Palit GTX 960 Jetstream 4gb. Better?

    Hi sir, I don't recommend you get the 4GB versions of GTX 960. Halos walang benefit ang 4GB sa GTX 960 dahil not powerful enough ang GPU for gaming at above 1080p. Also yung 128-Bit memory interface might be a bottleneck sa 4GB of RAM. The only time na recommended mag GTX 960 4GB is kung plan mo gamitin ang videocard in 2-way SLI but even then questionable parin ang benefit dahil sa 128-Bit interface.

    If you prefer GTX 960 stick with the 2GB version. If you need the 4GB of memory then I suggest go with these videocards:

    Php 9500 = ZOTAC GTX 770 4GB GDDR5 256-Bit (ZT-70312-10P)
    Php 10699 = Sapphire R9 380 NITRO 4GB GDDR5 256-Bit

    So, this will be my rig:
    cpu, Intel Core i5-4590
    mobo, ECS Z97 Gank Machine
    ram, 8GB 2x4gb DDR3
    gpu, Palit GTX 960 Jetstream 4gb
    psu, Thermaltake Smart SE 530W

    an upgrade from this:

    Processor: Intel i3-3210 3.2ghz
    Motherboard: Gigabyte h61m-ds2 3.0
    RAM: 8gb ddr3
    Videocard: GTX 750ti 2gb

    basically for gaming: (witcher 3, nba 2k15, and the like)

    - Suggestion: For the same price as the Thermaltake SMART SE 530W PSU, you can also get the Seasonic S12II 520W model which has 5-year warranty
    - Take note the ECS Z97 MACHINE motherboard is an ATX form factor motherboard. So make sure to check if compatible siya sa PC case mo.

    Other than that the upgrade looks OK :-)
  • Sir @sleepygeepy salamat po sa tips and advice, ok lang po ba ang i5 6600k sa gtx 980 wala po bang bottle neck sa cpu un? And last na tanong po, ano po mas tingin nyo na ok yung r9 390 or gtx 980? Salamat po uli
  • @ekiholic11
    Struggling which setup to choose. Need advice guys. salamat in advance TPC!

    >Play games on a 1080p 60hz monitor with high settings
    >playlist: LoL, Black Desert Online, GTA V, (maybe) GW2, Fallout 4

    OPTIONS
    a. i3+gtx750ti+PSU520 = allows for more headroom to buy a badder video card next year but processor needs to be upgraded. 1-2 years lifespan.
    b. i5+gtx750ti+PSU520 = allows headroom for vid card but no need to replace the processor in the years to come. 1-2 years lifespan.
    c. I5+GTX950+PSU520 = better performance than the previous vid card. DX12 enabled but news is, the nvidia cards arent optimized to handle dx12 well. 2-3 years lifespan.
    d. I5+R9 380+PSU620 = allows to game on maxed settings on a 1080p monitor. 3-5+ years lifespan.

    Hi sir, obviously Option d will be your best choice because of the Core i5 and 620W PSU :-)

    - If you want a build that will last you a long time with minimal upgrades in between, then get the highest spec processor and PSU possible with your budget.

    - CPU upgrades are wasteful because you will have no use for the older processor and its difficult to sell used processors in the 2nd hand market. So avoid doing a CPU upgrade if possible.

    - Going with a higher wattage PSU will allow you to upgrade to higher spec videocards and you will be able to re-use the PSU again and again on future builds. Price difference between 520W and 620W is just
    a few hundred pesos so its worth going with the higher wattage.

    - It's better to just buy the videocard that will perform well with the games you will be playing now than overspend. Just upgrade the videocard as soon as you feel its too slow or not able to play the games with the graphics settings ~ framerate you want. Upgrading videocards is easier because there are many buyers of 2nd-hand videocards. So you can recoup some of your investment on the videocard by selling it on the 2nd-hand market. Plus you can still use your PC while your videocard is boxed and up-for-sale as the Core i5 has a built-in GPU.

    ADDITIONALLY
    Ano magandang case na kasama nito?
    Ok na ba Emaxx rebel or irwin griffin?

    I think it's better if you mention your budget for the upgrade first. I don't like both cases because they use 92mm fans which are hard to find and lessen the clearance for CPU coolers :-)
  • guys pahelp naman, ok na ba to for 40k price range? baka meron pa kayong marecommend etc.

  • @adobosunrise
    Sir @sleepygeepy salamat po sa tips and advice, ok lang po ba ang i5 6600k sa gtx 980 wala po bang bottle neck sa cpu un?

    Ok din ang Core i5-6600K dahil pwede mo pa siya overclock to higher speeds. Powerful enough naman ang Core i5-6600K to get the highest framerates out of the GTX 980 or even GTX 980 Ti. Pero mas suggest ko lang na mag Core i7-6700K ka na kung kasiya sa budget para hindi ka narin mag CPU upgrade. Pero kung prefer mo talaga ang Core i5-6600K then ok lang :-)

    Napansin ko lang kasi na less-at-less na ang benefit ng pag-overclock ng CPU sa games at mas malaki na ang benefit ng extra-cores or hyperthreading. Also kung mapapansin mo karamihan ng bagong games na lumalabas ngayon ang "recommended CPU" is Core i7 or FX-8350. For example lang:

    Games and Recommended CPU Specification
    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain = Intel Core i7-4790 or better
    Witcher 3 = Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350 or better
    Shadow of Mordor = Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350 or better
    Mad Max = Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350 or better
    Assassin's Creed Syndicate: Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350 or better
    ...
    etc

    So mas willing na ako mag suggest ng Core i7 for games as long as fit sa budget at hindi malaki sacrifice sa videocard or ibang parts :-)
  • sir @sleepygeepy pwede po pa pm kung san store mabbili yung ASUS GTX 980 STRIX 4GB GDDR5 256-Bit = 24,990.00
    mahal pa kasi sa ibanng store na na check ko online. thanks

    hdd/ssd: Crucial BX100 250gb

    Hi sir, take a look at this suggestion:

    Before
    CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 = 9300
    MOB: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 5 = 7895
    VGA: Palit GTX 960 Jetstream 2GB = 9480

    TOTAL = 26675

    After
    CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 = 9600 (bundle price)
    MOB: MSI Z97 PC MATE = 3500 (bundle price)
    VGA: ASUS GTX 970 TURBO OC = 13999 (bundle price)

    TOTAL = 27099

    Php 424 price difference pero upgraded na to ASUS GTX 970 TURBO ang videocard :-)
    Also masyado mahal ang Corsair Dominator Platinum for your build. Just go with G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3-1600 and free up Php 2.8K sa budget.

  • help mga master torn between gtx 970 and r9 390. main issue ko is heat and power consumption ng r9 390.

    440W+ = r9 390
    270W+ = gtx 970

    kaya din ba ng seasonic 620w ang r9 390?

    kainis haha decided na ko sa gtx 970 tas biglang lumabas pa r9 390 sobrang bang for the buck e(that 8gb vram tho haha sarap mag mods). napupush back pa tuloy lalo pag buo ko kakaisip. >_<
    Grabe kasi dito sa kwarto ko kapag summer parang sauna worried ako baka di kayanin ng 390. naka 6770 ako dati tas palit sa gtx 750ti. sobrang enjoy ako sa low temps at power draw ng 750ti as of now.

    I think you already have a choice in mind

    You are just waiting for advices that will conform with what's already in your mind :)
  • @sleepygeepy ok sir i'll consider your advise.. ok sakin yung bundle ng i7 6700... actually hindi naman ako mag ooverclock basta ok yung fps above 60 ok na sakin yun.. tanong ko lang sir pwede pa pm kung sang store ko mabibili yung bundle na i7 and mobo.. nxt wk na kasi ako bibili ng mga parts/components.. salamat uli
  • @sleepygeepy: Good points (just the response I wanted to hear!). I've watched tens of videos and looked at many reviews, 750 ti and 950 seems good enough for my needs right now. There's a 1,500PHP difference between the two I've canvassed, it's a pretty sizeable chunk.

    I plan to spend 35-40k on this rig, components include:
    01 CPU: i5-4460
    02 GPU: Palit (GTX750Ti StormX) 2GB/128bit DDR5 [OC Edition] or ZOTAC GTX 950
    03 RAM: G.Skill Memory 4GB x2
    05 HDD: WD Blue 1TB
    06 PSU: Seasonic S12II-620 620W 80PLUS Bronze
    07 MONITOR: Asus (VX239H) 23" IPS LED Monitor Black
    08 OS: Windows 7 Starter/Home Basic (Hope may makita akong 3kPHP!)
    09 MOBO: LGA1150 Gigabyte GA-H81M-S2PH (Maybe I should get a better mobo instead?)
    10 CASE: 1,500 budget (could be a bit higher)
    11 WIFI USB DONGLE: 400 budget
    12 ODD: 200 budget

    All in all, if 40k na budget, may natitira pa akong 2k PHP (nagsearch na rin kasi ako dito sa TPC ng mga items na bibilhin ko). Could be spent on getting a better mobo and/or case

    edit: saw your i7 skylake recommendation. My current setup of the i5 + H81 is 10800... HNNNG (i looked around a bit and there is a pretty good deal of the i5 skylake)

  • @ekiholic11

    Now that I know your budget, check out the builds below which I sent out to someone requesting for a 40K build (everything included).

    Intel 40K Build: Core i5 + GTX 960
    CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 = 9,600.00 (bundle)
    HSF: (Intel Stock HSF)
    MOB: ECS Z97 GANK MACHINE = 3,000.00 (bundle)
    RAM: G.Skill AEGIS 2x4GB DDR3-1600 CL11 (F3-1600C11D-8GIS) = 2,520.00
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 64MB (WD10EZEX) = 2,480.00
    VGA: Palit GTX 960 JetStream 2GB = 9,480.00
    KBM: Logitech MK100 Media Keyboard + Mouse Combo = 499.00
    PSU: Seasonic S12II 620W PSU 80+ Bronze = 3,000.00
    ATX: NZXT S340 Armory (Black + Red) = 3,870.00
    LCD: BenQ GW2255 22-inch 1920x1080 AMVA Panel = 5,400.00
    ============
    TOTAL = 39,849.00


    AMD 40K Build: FX-8320 + GTX 960
    CPU: AMD FX-8320E = 6,100.00
    HSF: ID-Cooling SE-204K = 1,590.00
    MOB: MSI 970 Gaming = 4,690.00
    RAM: G.Skill RipjawsX 2x4GB DDR3-1866 CL9 (F3 14900CL9D 8GBXL) = 3,150.00
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 64MB (WD10EZEX) = 2,480.00
    VGA: Palit GTX 960 JetStream 2GB = 9,480.00
    KBM: Logitech MK100 Media Keyboard + Mouse Combo = 499.00
    PSU: Seasonic S12II 620W PSU 80+ Bronze = 3,000.00
    ATX: NZXT S340 Armory (Black + Red) = 3,870.00
    LCD: BenQ GW2255 22-inch 1920x1080 AMVA Panel = 5,400.00
    ============
    TOTAL = 40,259.00

    Notes:
    - The build was intended with some "aesthetics" in mind so we used NZXT S340 Armory edition case to show off the components. A cheaper case would also do.
    - The budget for the Keyboard Mouse Combo can be allotted to the USB WiFi Dongle.
    - No budget for the optical drive sorry. Also the case does not support optical drives. Do you really need one? If yes we can adust the build.
    - The monitor is the affordable BenQ GW2255 a good 22-inch model with AMVA panel. I suggest reading the ASUS VX239H thread before getting that monitor due to good + bad feedback from owners.

    Anyway hope that both suggestions give you a good idea of the PC specs you can get for Php 40K. Personally I would target this build with your budget:

    - Intel Core i5-4460 processor
    - ASUS B85M-GAMER motherboard
    - G.Skill AEGIS 2x4GB DDR3-1600 memory
    - Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB harddrive
    - Palit GTX 960 JetStream or Palit GTX 950 JetStream
    - Seasonic S12II or Seasonic ECO Series 600W PSU
    - Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E case
    - LG 22MP65HQ or LG 22MP57D 22-inch IPS panel monitor
  • Problema lang yan kung 10hrs straight a day ka maglaro


    @faku

    sir pano kung mga 10-14 hours siya na ka on (work station din kasi) pero mga 2 - 3hours lang ang gaming?

    and kaya na po ba ng seasonic 620w ang r9 390? nabasa ko kasi 650w psu requirement sa isang site pero may mga ibang redditors na kaya naman daw ng kahit 550w-600w na psu. :)
  • Potek ganda ng deal ng skylake bundle :))

    ano kaya magandang case na marerecommend nyo? ung mobo is GA-H170-GAMING 3 LGA 1151
  • @ghegpatatas

    pano kung mga 10-14 hours siya na ka on (work station din kasi) pero mga 2 - 3hours lang ang gaming?


    May Zero-Core technology ang AMD at implemented na way before pa sa Nvidia Kepler which means pag low loads, AFAIK 1-2 watts lang ang ginagamit ng GPU mismo.

    and kaya na po ba ng seasonic 620w ang r9 390? nabasa ko kasi 650w psu requirement sa isang site pero may mga ibang redditors na kaya naman daw ng kahit 550w-600w na psu. :)


    Kaya naman ng Seasonic 620 yan. Was running a GTX680 Gainward Phantom before sa Seasonic 520 ko w/ an OC'd i5-3570k

  • @adobosunrise
    @sleepygeepy ok sir i'll consider your advise.. ok sakin yung bundle ng i7 6700... actually hindi naman ako mag ooverclock basta ok yung fps above 60 ok na sakin yun.. tanong ko lang sir pwede pa pm kung sang store ko mabibili yung bundle na i7 and mobo.. nxt wk na kasi ako bibili ng mga parts/components.. salamat uli

    PM sent :-)
  • WRONG FIGURES BELOW.
    BUNDLED MOBO should be 7650. sorry. Thanks for correcting my, sleepygeepy!

    ---
    @Sleepygeepy: Quality advice right there. Wow. I almost feel guilty by having you help me on this, sir. O_O

    Notes:
    - Can we switch this to use the i5-6600K + H170 bundle instead? I'll list it down below.
    - For the monitor, I found VZ2250 a few days ago but can't find any reviews about it. It's just a few hundred more expensive than the GW2255, but can you recommend this display? Or is GW2255 a better performer? The frameless VZ looks quite attractive (but it's the flicket free feature which caught my eye).
    - Also, I actually don't need the Keyboard + Mouse combo (bought the two of them just this year), so we can stave this off.
    - Went modular PSU because my bro said it would be easier to manage the wires with this.
    - Can we adjust this build to include a optical drive? Or is there an affordable ODD which we can connect via USB? My bro will give me the optical drive, just needs a slot in the case
    - That NZXT case is beast! Wow.
    - I'll probably just separate the budget for the OS from the rig
    - I used GTX 950 OC ed instead, as I plan to upgrade anyway next year (or next next year) and looking at benchmarks, this is enough (prolly medium settings on 1 or 2 features).

    CPU: i5-6600K = 11,800 (bundle)
    MOB: Gigabyte H170 = 0 (bundle)
    RAM: Adata XPG (Dual) 2x4gb ddr4 2400 C16 (AX4U2400W4G16-DRZ) = 3740
    HDD: WD Blue 1TB = 2,480
    VGA: Gigabyte GTX 950 OC Ed. 2gb = 8210.00
    PSU: Seasonic (M12II) 620watts 80+ Bronze = 3560
    Monitor: BenQ GW2255 22-inch 1920x1080 AMVA Panel = 5,400.00
    Case: NZXT S340 Armory (Black + Red) = 3,870.00
    -----
    39060

    P.S. Really loving this discussion so far. Just when I thought I have already exhausted my options with 8 simulated builds in my spreadsheet, even more comes out!

  • The Skylake Core i3-6320 is the gamer's new best friend

  • @ekiholic11

    Just curious, ano ang current setup mo?
  • @fakuryu: a very modest laptop. (who am i kidding lol)

    i5 M430 @ 2.27 GHz
    nvidia 310M
    4GB RAM

    Been using this for 5 years+. Last AAA game I played here was Skyrim and Tomb Raider, which was running at around 20fps. :))
  • @ekiholic11

    Q: Can we switch this to use the i5-6600K + H170 bundle instead? I'll list it down below.
    A: Yes but take note this will be more expensive. The special price of Php 11,800 for the Core i5-6600K is if you buy the processor and an LGA1151 motherboard. So the total price would be Php 11,800 for the Core i5-6600K plus Php 7,650 for the Gigabyte GA-H170-Gaming 3 motherboard. Total of Php 19,450 :-)

    Q: For the monitor, I found VZ2250 a few days ago but can't find any reviews about it. It's just a few hundred more expensive than the GW2255, but can you recommend this display? Or is GW2255 a better performer? The frameless VZ looks quite attractive (but it's the flicket free feature which caught my eye).
    A: Hey that's a nice monitor! First time to see a BenQ with AH-IPS panel at the 22-inch budget price-point. How much is that monitor and who is selling it? (PM me). The only reason we suggest BenQ GW2255 is its the most affordable non-TN panel monitor with 1920x1080 resolution. Also it has flicker free backlight too (non-PWM based). But if the BenQ VZ2250 is a better value that might replace the GW2255.

    Q: Went modular PSU because my bro said it would be easier to manage the wires with this.
    A: That's fine but if the case has good cable management (like NZXT S340) sometimes a non modular PSU ends up with a cleaner looking build. The not-so-nice thing about the modular PSUs is they use flat ribbon cables which don't look too nice compared to the round sleeved cables. Anyway whether you go modular or not is OK. What's important is you get the right wattage for your build :-)

    Q: Can we adjust this build to include a optical drive? Or is there an affordable ODD which we can connect via USB? My bro will give me the optical drive, just needs a slot in the case
    A: The NZXT S340 does not have a 5.25 bay unfortunately, but if you use the ODD like once a year (or never) you can just open the case and hook up the DVD-Drive to the motherboard and PSU externally (ghetto style) for the meantime. If you are looking for a case with an optical drive bay check out the Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E case and the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M. Both are bang-for-buck cases.

  • pwede pa pm kung anong store yang may bundle sell? TIA!
  • - AH! I misunderstood that bundle. So that's how it is. Glad you told me this... I was about to call them tomorrow! I'll reconsider my options and check if I should really opt for it... 12,600 vs 19450. I was too excited and didn't bother to look at it more carefully OTL Thanks for pointing it out!

    - It's a 2014 model but weirdly no reviews are available so I can't tell if this product is created with quality. But if the GW2255 is a nice monitor (which it really is!), then perhaps this would be a great buy! (PM'ed you)

    - Oh. I did read in the specs page it has its own box for the PSU and saw that the case is quite spacious. I'll probably go with the non-modular option then!

    - Yeah, it doesn't. I'll check those two out as well

    Kasi for 40k (not including the OS)

    cpu, Intel Core i5-6600K 3.50-3.90GHz - 11800php
    mobo, Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3 DDR3 - 7770php
    ram, Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 2x4gb DDR4 2400 CL14 - 4200php
    hdd, 1TB WDC Blue - 2500php
    gpu, Gigabyte GTX 950 Windforce OC 2gb - 8700php
    psu, FSP Raider 550w 80+ Silver - 2600php
    atx, Corsair Carbide Series 200R Window Edition - 3350php
    mon, BenQ 24" fullHD Gaming 1ms RL2455HM - 8500php

    ---49420php yep lagpas sya dahil dun sa Z170 na mobo but kung gusto mo mapababa yung gastos mo, yep kunin mo nalang yung bundle.

    Then yung monitor na yan ay gaming monitor na may 1ms GTG

    CPU: i5-6600K = 11,800 (bundle)
    MOB: Gigabyte H170 = 0 (bundle)


    Medyo magiging useless ang pagiging unlocked multiplier processor ang i5-6600k sa non Z mobo. BCLK overclocking is not even worth it. Kaya IMHO either go with a non-k i5 Sky Lake or labas ng extra cash para sa Z mobo
  • Yep, di ko na kukunin ung Skylake, mali lng pla ako ng intindi sa bundle >_< . It was too good to be true nga naman, haha! inaantok na siguro ako

    Nice... 1ms. Will check that out!

    --

    Di na kaya ng budget ko ung 8k monitor... :( siguro ok na muna kahit may 5-6ms delay hehe

    Eto na final build ko:
    Intel Core i5 4590 3.3-3.7Ghz 4-Core
    Zotac GTX 950 or GTX 760 Zotac
    G.Skill AEGIS 2x4GB DDR3-1600 CL11 (F3-1600C11D-8GIS)
    WD Blue 1TB
    Seasonic 620w S12II
    BenQ 22 (VZ2250H) LED, IPS, vga HDMI, vesa, frameless
    MOBO: Z97 Machine
    ATX: NZXT Source 340
    totolink Korea wifi
    Sandisk std 128gb (Not sure if i should still go for the ssd route or choose i5 4690 instead)

    Thanks for your inputs, sleepy (especially you sir, you've been very detailed and provided professional advice) and fukuryu :)
    Will post pics once done!

    Other accessories i need to buy would be electrical wire i guess. And everything else would just need to be put in its own place? (will prolly read on how to assemle PC's tomorrow)

    edit : baka mag i5 4460 nlng pla ako and maybe get a better vid card. decisions decisions
