Hey people, going to be building a desktop soon and need a little bit more help. Been reading some forums and I understand some stuff but not the finer details lol. So I know I can find a list of thing but need specifics and opinions from other people. Im looking to build a desktop and want excellent specs but not top dollar, but don't want to go cheap for one part and it affect overall efficiency.
So I was thinking i7 or i5 core.
Probably the best all round gaming CPU is the i7-7700K. The i5-7600K is a good alternative at a lower cost. Some will say "wait for the Ryzen 5". Up to you but Ryzen's so far have not matched Intel on gaming systems. They look excellent choices for workstations though.
Motherboard im assuming intel would be best
Intel don't make 'em any more. Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte, MSI current market leaders. You'd ideally get one with a Z270 chipset for the above mentioned processor.
fans curious how many people use or found best
Depends. Unless you are going for an extreme overclocking system a well designed case with good airflow and 2-3 low RPM 120mm/140mm fans is more than enough, IMO.
Case was thinking biggest one I can get so I have room and can upgrade or add
Again personal choice. You probably don't need a massive full tower case.
video graphics card I want a more high end one so NVidia?
High end currently Nvidia GTX1070 and GTX1080 or even GTX1080 Ti (@ $700) seem to be the choice. AMD RX470, RX480 and GTX1060 solid "upper mid range" cards.
was going to do both hard drive and the other one ssd I believe lol
Makes sense as allows you to use the cheaper, slower HDD for mass storage, keeping your SSD for things that benefit more from the speed, like the operating system and programs. The newest PCIe or M.2 NVMe SSD's offer the best performance.
power don't understand minimum and can it be to much power (power supply)
Can't really be too much. There are online calculators that will work out an approximate power draw for a system. Look for more efficient power supplies (from 80+ Bronze at the basic level to 80+ Platinum and Titanium at the high end). At this level system, do not skimp on the power supply.
I want wireless internet as well as Ethernet cable. also Bluetooth if I can hook it up internal.
Doable. There are numerous cheap-ish PCIe WiFi cards on the market which include Bluetooth. Wifi 802.11 ac is the current standard to go for.
obviously enough ports/usb
The more feature rich motherboards tend to have more USB ports and headers (for attaching to front panel ports on cases etc) than most people can actually use. USB-C is an emerging standard likely to be very important in the near future.
I want to be able to use 2-3 monitors if possible
Any common graphics card can support multiple monitors these days.
idk what to get for disk reader/ ddv or whatever lol
ram I want I believe16 or 32
16 is a good level for the moment
overall I want to build a desktop with a big case, nice software/hardware, correct fan/power, a motherboard/video graphics/etc. to work together and fit nice in the case, internet wired/wireless, Bluetooth. enough ports usb/hdmi/etc. Once again overall I want a desktop that can play any emulator or game current and hopefully any to come out with no issue. also typical things that you would do everyday.
Thanks to anyone's opinions and time appreciate it.
