  • 5/10.
    Firstly 10GB RAM how? you have single channel dual channel and quad channel there's no such thing as triple channel ram?
    CPU good choice for an i3 but if your looking at gaming i5 is a must that i3 is probably bottlenecking your cpu.
    ssd never can go wrong but a hdd isn't bad either.
    motherboard the best board available but a waste of money too you could have gotten a different one with the same major features but cheaper. You don't need 2 extra pcie slots you rarely need the 8x pic slots extra stuff you may never use. And that money could have been used on a better cpu so you get better performance.
    GPU not bad at all average performance the best choice but a gtx 1060 or rx 580 is not far off and much cheaper.
    Also power supply?

      Ps remove that third piece of ram you can't have 3 pieces of Ram it will damage the motherboard you can have 1 stick 2 sticks and 4 sticks never three the 1 and 2 sticks need to be in a certain order too see manual.
      Also bottlenecking your GPU* not CPU (autocorrect)

      There are no 2gb sticks on the supported RAM datasheet for that motherboard. So you're just speculating that you'll end up with a bootable system. If for nothing else I suspect XMP probably won't work..

      @Pixel343 He's got crucial i'm guessing 2GB crucial DDR4 since the z390's all do the new ddr4 ram it's exists but i'm not sure. I also don't think you can do 2GB with 8Gb usually 8Gb modules come as 2 4GB sticks etc.

  • Sounds like a basic workstation or game machine.

    What's wrong with upgrading to a quad core i7. They gotta be cheap now. I just bought two i9 Mac laptops last week.

    And 10GB? That just sounds like a weird number for memory. I am used to 8/16/32. . .

    Graphics card is cool.

  • Sounds fine for a general purpose machine. Big question is the OS! Win 10 or Linux?

      Linux wtf? what is he building? a thousand dollar paperweight?

      @Pixel343 LOL! Why do you think so many tech things use Linux as an OS? Why do you think there are still mainframes that use Unix?

      I do not think you have ever delved "under the hood" of Linux.

      Of course, it does not spy on you like Microshite stuff. It is open source. It can be modified to your hearts content. It runs all the usual software, at least, everything you will ever need.

      I have considered using linux for my CNC build, windows isn't what you call a "real-time operating system" which is why linux is used in many dedicated technical applications. but I have a learning disability, so It's somewhat intimidating. Windows is in my bones. I'm using 8.1 pro right now, windows 10 certainly perfected the "Cloudy" aspects of windows 8.1 and the App dev team only works on that now so.

  • meh you could have gotten Way more bang for your buck going with a Ryzen build. But not bad over all.

    For example bigger SSD More Ram, Better video card, and WAY faster processor if you built a ryzen rig.. assuming you paid retail that is lol.

  • I'm a ripjaws guy when it comes to RAM 16 gigs should is the minimum I would ever put in a desktop these days.
    that processor is... economical? I'd go with an i5 for sure. The new i7's are sweet but expensive as F.
    No opinion on the mobo
    Excellent choice in SSD
    I prefer AMD's GPU's mostly out of brand loyalty.
    What psu?

  • I feel you are better off with a i5 or i7. I3 will become a bottleneck for you. And why 10gig ram? Why not 12? And the mhz on the ram?

      Intel core i5 9400 if it is within budget. And your ram can be 3000mhz as I saw. Better to have the same on all then different speeds. That can cause a bsod on heavy 3d programs or games.

  • RAM 10GB? why? do you have 8gb and 2gb in the slots?
    What graphic card do you have?

    But this is a budget build. i'd rate it 5 out of 10

      @YvanKarma I was jk, the supported mem list doesn't include any 1 or 2 gig sticks anyway.

    • 7 d ago

      @Pixel343 right, exactly. I don't know why he didn't just put dual rams in there 4x4 or 2x8. But then again, if you're gonna do simple stuff, then it doesn't really matter.

  • No idea tbh

      Depends on what he's doing with it

      @HungLikeAHorsefly... No, No it doesn't.

    • 7 d ago

      @Pixel343 Yes, it does. The Core i3 usually (but not always) has fewer cores than the i5 and i7, has less cache and fewer acceleration features. Conversely, it typically has a deeper branch prediction pipeline per core than the i5 or i7.

      If you're running a workload that doesn't use all of your cores (which is the case for most people), that doesn't use much in the way of acceleration features (crypto, compression, virtualization, etc) and doesn't use much static data (like say, a web browser) then you'll get absolutely no benefit for having an i5 or i7 over having an i3.

  • i3? Why? Get an i7
