The Gigabyte Z370 Gaming 7 is still available (albeit very low stock from stores) for $280 on MemoryExpress, so better be quick, just write in the special request to have them ship from the store or contact their online sale manager for that request, they've done that before when online stock are out.

 

Otherwise the ASUS ROG Z370-E is also a good board with all the high end bells and whistles with pretty good power delivery and VRMs. But here's the thing, if you're going to OC, do it now, so many times I've seen people said "I want/plan to OC in the future" but they never end up doing it, they just chose to upgrade when they need the performance boost. So think about it, if you truly don't need to OC, go with a sub $200/$220 board and save a bit of money.

 

The Dell S2417DG monitor is sitting at an insane price right now for what it offers. I suggest you snatch it right away before it is gone.

Good luck on your build!

So if you have put some thoughts into the OC situation I mentioned earlier, and decided to go with my advice, here are some good sub $220 boards you can go with.

MSI Z370-A Pro ($125 on NewEgg) is a very "all-you-need necessity" entry board, it has everything you need, and still allow for some light OC.

Gigabyte Z370XP SLI ($150 on Amazon) is a good entry board as well with a bit more bells and whistles when it comes to the back IO, although I've heard VRMs on the entry/lower end boards from Gigabyte for the Z370 chipets aren't exactly idea or the best for OC, so take your pick. It does have a good aesthetic appeal to it though.

MSI Z370 Tomahawk ($190 on Amazon). Ah, where do I start with this one? It's basically a go to board if you have no clue where to start. Lots of good recommendation for this one, great all-rounder board, decent OC as well, and it looks great, can't go wrong with this.

MSI Z370 KRAIT ($185 on Amazon). This is a great board, it is comparable to the Tomahawk in terms of bells and whistles, with the notable exception of the onboard audio chipset, this one has a newer, more updated audio chipset.

And last but not least, the big boy ASUS ROG Z370-H ($213 on PC-Canada). This board is basically the baby brother of the Z370-E I mentioned above, but with less power delivery phases, so less head room for OC, but still a good option.

The first hurdle will be your motherboard, if you don't currently own another Ryzen CPU from the last-gen. The exception is if you purchase an X570 motherboard, which is the latest that launched with the new Ryzen CPU's including the 3400G. The X570 will have the BIOS loaded and compatible out of the box for the new CPUs. X470 and B450 motherboards from the previous generation of CPU's are also compatible, however, REQUIRE a BIOS update and that means having the previous-gen CPU installed - if you follow. MSI has some motherboards which can be updated without a CPU however, many people are still having stability challenges from what I read. Some X570 motherboards for consideration could be: https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Productcompare?CompareItemList=13%2D145%2D161%2C13%2D144%2D262%2C13%2D119%2D197

The Asus TUF Gaming board has Wifi onboard, if that is of interest and is why it runs around $30 more. Otherwise, they all have ethernet ports. The X570 boards, unfortunately, are a fair bit more expensive than a B450 motherboards. And the B450 is what I would recommend, if you have the ability to get the BIOS updated to support your newer Ryzen CPU.

In terms of RAM, you have to decide if you are good with the Non-RGB look or if you want RGB lighting on your ram. I personally like Corsair Ram and you'll want DD4 3200Mhz base speed or ideally 3600Mhz speed, if you can afford it. G.Skill or T-Force are also good brands I can recommend. 16GB is the ideal size so 2 x 8GB sticks. Some options:

https://www.newegg.ca/corsair-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820236551

https://www.newegg.ca/team-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820331354

https://www.newegg.ca/team-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820331284

For storage, NVME 2280 M.2 SSD is a must and you'll find a number of good options with Samsung being the most expensive, Western-Digital is usually reasonably priced and then cheaper options from companies like A-DATA or Crucial. Look for a 500GB or 512GB drive for your main drive with Windows 10 to be installed on it and then add either a 2.5" Hard Disk or SSD drive to be your main storage drive for games. Consider 1TB if you look at standard hard disk storage from companies like Seagate with a Barracuda 7200rpm drive or 512GB SSD. Note, I believe all of the X570 motherboards above can accommodate 2x M.2 drives on the actual motherboard. Some options:

https://www.newegg.ca/samsung-860-evo-series-500gb/p/N82E16820147677?Item=N82E16820147677

https://www.newegg.ca/seagate-firecuda-1tb-st1000lx015/p/N82E16822179111

You case recommendation is a solid choice with the Meshify C. Great build quality. You'll also need a power supply and I'd recommend Corsair with a RM650x model that is 650W and future-proofs your build for your GPU upgrade down the road.

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B079H6111J/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

As always, shop around for the best prices. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/ is a good site for building out your component list and it provides pricing from newegg, mike's comptuter shop, memory express, canada computers and amazon.ca too.

Good luck with your new PC build.

Notes:

The original motherboard you selected doesn't support overclocking, I've replaced it with a motherboard that does. In addition, this board also has built-in WiFi which replaced the internal WiFi card you had on your list originally.
I removed Windows from your list of items, non-activated Windows runs nearly identically to activated Windows. You can read about that here. It seems like a good way to save some money until you have some more room to spend.
Picked a speedier kit of RAM for about $20 additional.
Added a 1TB Seagate HDD to your build since it's unlikely that a 250GB SSD will give you enough room for your games and video footage. The 2TB HDD is only +$30 additional for reference.
I hope you didn't want it to be $2000 after tax, because 120Hz monitors aren't exactly cheap. The one I included has FreeSync (only compatible with AMD GPU's), which reduces screen tearing at certain refresh rates. Here's another option (no FreeSync, slightly cheaper): BenQ ZOWIE 24" 1080p LED Full HD 144Hz.
I swapped the 1060 6GB for an RX 580. The performance on RX 580 is slightly better than the 1060 6GB in most test cases, and it supports FreeSync (the free version of NVIDIA's G-Sync).


------
With all that being said, I've also put together another build centered around AMD Ryzen 1600. This build doesn't cost as much, and will offer competitive performance to the i5 7600k you originally selected. More importantly, the motherboard supports future AMD Processors until the year 2020, which will make upgrading in the future easy and inexpensive (Intel is dropping support for LGA1151 after this generation).

Here is the AMD Ryzen 1600 build ($80 less).

I would personally recommend the AMD build, however, you can't go wrong with either.
u/Defiant001 · 2 pointsr/bapccanada

Looks good to me, only thing missing is an SSD, they can be had dirt cheap now and shouldn't be overlooked even in a budget build. Here is a great option with free shipping, another larger option with free shipping.

The 7700K and Kaby Lake friends should be released around the end of this year, you may find yourself having to upgrade sooner than later before the 6700K goes out of stock. I would reconsider putting the money for the 6500 towards the 6700K now unless the budget is super tight, in which case I would go i3 6100 since you are planning on upgrading anyway. 6700K cheapest with free shipping I could find. I believe you also get another $5 off when signing up a new account. Keep in mind the 6700K doesn't come with a cooler, so a 212 EVO would be a solid option.

You could save some money on the case as well, here are some sale options. Make sure what you get is full atx compatible.

​

First, I changed the motherboard to a b450 one and though it doesn't come with wifi, I'd recommend just getting a cheap WiFi adaptor from Amazon like this: https://www.amazon.ca/WISE-TIGER-Adapter-600Mbps-Wireless/dp/B01M0Q51UI/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2ULZAU1R517AR&keywords=wifi+antenna+for+pc&qid=1564007425&s=gateway&sprefix=wifi+ante%2Caps%2C213&sr=8-3

I also upgraded the cpu to a 3600 because there is a big performance improvement in games compared to 2nd gen. Since 3rd gen ryzen loves 3600mhz ram, I upgraded that too. It doesn't have rgb, but if you want that you can try this kit for more money: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/6jBTwP/gskill-trident-z-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c18d-16gtzrx

The graphics card was changed to a 5700 XT because it's not only faster then the 2060 super, but is faster than even the 2070 Super in most cases according to Userbenchmark. However, I'd recommend waiting a little for the 3rd party non-blower cards. Finally, I got a psu (still +80 gold and fully modular) that was cheaper and less overkill for your system at a wattage of 550 for a system that's only using 399.

u/MagnumDoberman · 1 pointr/bapccanada

This is over his budget

I nailed this one, really good for 1080p/60 fps gaming at high settings, leaves you some money for a monitor and a low end keyboard and mice

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B076CS89TZ/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1518932465&sr=8-9&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=ryzen+5+tower

This monitor should serve you well


https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B00EZSUVHK/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1518932705&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=1080p+monitor+24+inch&dpPl=1&dpID=41uYfDdTtfL&ref=plSrch

And from there just pick up a cheap mouse and keyboard combo from a reputable brand such as this:

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B00NLZUM36/ref=mp_s_a_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1518932819&sr=8-7&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=cooler+master+keyboard+and+mouse+combo&dpPl=1&dpID=51suySQKxZL&ref=plSrch

This PC has some great components. Ryzen 5 processor and an RX570 should serve you well for 3 or 4 years. It is pretty upgradeable too, you could get a better GPU in 2 years and still be good to go as processors are not advancing that quickly anymore. you can check out some benchmarks for the processor and GPU if you dont want to take my word for it.

Welcome to the PC Master Race btw. Let me know if you want to play some PUBG

Any Store Preference?

Amazon got the X570-A Pro, though it says Usually ships within 1 to 3 months so may be a backorder, a 3rd party on there got it listed though for a extra $75, Memory Express also shows 1 in stock at the Vancouver & 3 at the Saskatoon locations:

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07T4M4XPG

https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX77621

​

MPG X570 Gaming Edge WiFi is the same, 1-3 months from Amazon though 3rd party got it for a extra $78, Canada Computers shows 1 open box at the Grandview location in Vancouver:

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07T2FWCYG

https://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=26_1832_1833&item_id=139006

​

MPG X570 Gaming Plus is only available from Amazon 3rd Party, for $79 extra, defaults to the 3rd party instead of the cheaper Amazon listing:

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07T5QDRFX

​

MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon WiFi is showing temporary out of stock from Amazon, though a 3rd party got it for a extra $116, Canada Computers shows 1 open box at the Mississauga location:

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07T4M3RTR

https://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=26_1832_1833&item_id=139004

​

After that is the $500+ range that's the same with the Meg X570 Ace, temporary out of stock from Amazon, though a 3rd party got it for a extra $154

Honesty for the ram I just saw the sale and chucked it over. Just like I’m about to do with this lol:
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06Y46X4L9/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_bjpdqN_c_x_1_w?pf_rd_m=A1IM4EOPHS76S7&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-11&pf_rd_r=TMPP1D4SR1Y1ND0AZM0H&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=6520361d-e367-53a2-93dd-57d0a8c7efad&pf_rd_i=677243011

If you look at my build , it looks pretty aesthetic, even the ram, and all I did was buy this:
Extended Computer LED Strip Kit -... https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07DD54QCM?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

I’d save money where I mentioned and go for a better gpu. I looked up the wireless adapter and belkin has a good one for $28 which is great but for that price yeah maybe just go with the mobo you have.
Either way though, you have a great build and you’ll probably be so happy with it that you won’t go back to console. I play on a 144hz monitor and my 1070 + 2600 outs out over 200fps in fortnite which is so smooth that I can never go back to console. It’ll legit hurt my eyes.
Do you have a monitor btw? Would you be willing to get a 75hz or 144hz? If not, stick with what you have for sure.

u/Amadi15 · 1 pointr/bapccanada

Thanks allot man! I literally just missed Memory express, the store its in stock at is actually near my area so hopefully I can make it happen, I appreciate the tip! If not I will look into the other one your recommended.

This is the same monitor you recommended right? https://www.dell.com/en-ca/shop/dell-24-gaming-monitor-s2417dg/apd/210-AIZS/monitors-monitor-accessories

It seems to be even cheaper on the Dell site, I want to get the 27" version but I noticed there are a few differences, but would they preform the same? I don't think 144Hz to 165Hz would make a difference in the real world right? The bigger one also doesn't say "QHD" next to the resolution, does that mean anything?

Thanks for telling me that, I will make sure to OC sooner than later, your totally right, I'll probably never do it if I keep putting it off. haha


Edit: I just seen the edit! Thanks for the other options, I've been thinking about the MSI Z370 Tomahawk, but I will wait to see if I can call in tomorrow and get the gaming 7. It's not like I will be pushing everything to the limits so I don't really think I'll require a top of the line board.

u/littleangotti · 1 pointr/bapccanada

Congrats on your first build! Of course it depends what you are wanting to do. If you are strictly gaming you'll have a better system if you go for intel at this price point.

Personally I would go for an nvme ssd at that price point (especially if I can get it at $150):

https://www.amazon.ca/XPG-GAMMIX-NAND-Gen3x4-AGAMMIXS11P-1TT-C/dp/B07KZNTZYB/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=nvme+ssd&qid=1575146243&sr=8-4

I'd prefer the nh-d15 for cooling, though you might have to switch to lower profile ram like the corsair lpx to accommodate the second fan:

https://www.amazon.ca/Noctua-NH-D15-Premium-Cooler-NF-A15/dp/B00L7UZMAK/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=nhd15&qid=1575146493&sr=8-1

The x570 motherboard is overkill in my opinion unless you are interested in pcie x4 down the road. This board is $150 right now: https://www.amazon.ca/ASUS-Prime-X470-Pro-Ryzen-Motherboard/dp/B07C57Q1XH/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=amd+motherboard+b470&qid=1575135581&sr=8-5

I might also consider replacing the case fans with noctua fans although this would push your budget up.

Wish I had gone with something more in line with what you have here with my last build rather than the 9900k / 2070 super I'm running.

u/CSnek · 4 pointsr/bapccanada

First things first- a Solid State Drive(From now on referred to as SSD) is a storage device with relatively high speeds and lower potential storage capacity for the price, compared to a Hard Disc Drive(Now on referred to as HDD).

You’re generally not going to need an SSD for most games, as the speed of storage isn’t really dependant on your storage. Most data used by programs is loaded into RAM, which is much faster. The only benefits are cases where you may have a game with long loading times because there’s a lot of content to load into the RAM. This is fine though, sometimes it’s nice to have those short loading times for multiplayer games. In actuality, it’s best to have an SSD for operating system storage, so instead of a computer taking a few minutes to start up, it only takes a few seconds.

There are two product types of SSD you can purchase, and two form factors (sizes) you can purchase. If you can update with which case and motherboard you have(and also any other storage that’s coming with the computer, I could have a better idea of what you have to work with, however you’re probably looking for something along the lines of SATA, 2.5” and around 500gb. This is a good option if you have one(or more) HDDs to store pictures, videos, documents, etc.

If you don’t have other storage devices, a 1tb equivalent would be preferable. Alternatively, you could purchase the 500gb SSD and some HDDs to back it up. Or even go a bit further and only purchase a 250gb SSD to hold ONLY your OS and a couple other things.

In terms of price, keep in mind that price for digital storage(SSD) has dropped significantly in the last year, and is forecasted to drop another 10% this year possibly.

TL;DR: Search “500gb SATA 2.5 SSD” online and buy anything from Samsung, Western Digital, Crucial or ADATA.

Hope this helps!

u/ClusterMorph · 2 pointsr/bapccanada

The build seems pretty good to me. Definetly not excessive.

Whats your budget for your monitor?
Is colour reproduction important to you?

A 1080p 60hz monitor is fine, but a 1080p 144hz will be pretty useful for the games you are playing.

Maybe This?

u/red286 · 2 pointsr/bapccanada

Well, if you're not doing any gaming or content creation (video/photo editing), there won't be a huge difference (at least, not after a few runs, it takes a while for it to determine what should be cached).

For reliability, I'd probably recommend an SSD, but not a TeamGroup one. Something like a Samsung or WD or Crucial would be a better option if you're concerned about reliability.

u/Rbk_3 · 1 pointr/bapccanada

Honestly it doesn't really matter. 1060 runs really cool so you don't need anything fancy. I would go with a 6GB version over a 3GB version.

Any cheap SSD will imprive things drastically.

This one is a great deal for 500GB for under $100

Again depending on the budget, but the best as you consider price and what you get is Acer Predator. Plus on Canadian Amazon it has a discount right now.

u/xhonaton · 1 pointr/bapccanada

this i built just now is about 800CAD give or take. A real bargain from what you'd see 1-3 years into the past, and there's barely any sales.

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/dd6sL2

https://www.amazon.ca/Keyboard-S101-Redragon-Computer-Improved/dp/B00NLZUM36/ref=sr_1_10?crid=1CBUIFCWI8I0G&keywords=keyboard+and+mouse&qid=1574754550&smid=AXZ7TDMJNMJSZ&sprefix=keyboard+%2Caps%2C165&sr=8-10

case is ugly and not really fan customizable , but if you're not playing games on ultra, with high shadows, you won't need many more fans on the case.

With time, this pc building/gaming hobby has become and is still becoming cheaper for the general community. My personal built is a little weaker than this sadly(but with more rainbows and glass), and costed me 1100CAD in december 2017 and it can still play DooM on High, maybe even on ultra if I overclock it, but I don't need to because I get enough enjoyment out of high/very high graphics with no shadows from the games i play already i.e. GW2, LoL, Rocket League, Overwatch, Middle earth.

u/phormix · 2 pointsr/bapccanada

>WDS100T2B0A

Yes, just be careful not to get the M.2 or PCI versions. For example, this one should work on a standard SATA drive connector:

https://www.amazon.ca/Blue-NAND-1TB-SSD-WDS100T2B0A/dp/B073SBQMCX/

​

This one is an M.2. style, which would *NOT* fit your board

https://www.amazon.ca/Blue-NAND-1TB-SSD-WDS100T2B0B/dp/B073SB2MXT

​

The model #'s are pretty similar, but you can see from the pictures that they're quite different (M.2 is a chip style, whereas the standard SATA is roughly the size of a laptop drive). Note that while standard SSH's are the size of 2.5" laptop drives, most come with a little plate or whatever to fit a full-size (3.5") bracket for desktops

u/SaphiraTa · 1 pointr/bapccanada

Gottcha. Are you able to spend a few bucks more on your CPU? An APU is basically graphics that's built into the CPU so you have on board graphics, and therefore do not need a GPU. That being said the APU graphics aren't very powerful and will not be great in more demanding games, or further down the line. The benefit of it would be you can obviously build a simple budget rig without having to spend out on a high priced GPU.

​

Since you're getting a pretty good GPU from your friend, I'd suggest spending a bit more on a better CPU and one that your not paying for having an APU (even though the CPU is cheaper, you'll get better performance/price by getting a solely CPU instead of a CPU with graphics). Take a look at the Ryzen 2600 its about 60 bucks more but if you can afford it id suggest that. https://www.amazon.ca/AMD-YD2600BBAFBOX-Processeur-RYZEN5-Socket/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=2600&qid=1566001973&s=gateway&sr=8-1

u/PlumpAF · 1 pointr/bapccanada

IMO I would spend the extra $20 and either get an asus vg248qe or BenQ xl2411p. The acer one you listed has no tilt or height adjustment.

You could spend $10 more on your psu, get full modularity and 200w more..

The mouse you chose isn't the greatest, this is one of the best mice on the market for only $20 more. This is probably the change I would recommend most making.

Spend $30 more and get double the capacity of ssd

Overall very good build though

u/Gaaraxdk · 1 pointr/bapccanada

Assuming you are looking for a 1080p.

viewsonic xg2401 is probable the best 144hz 1080p monitor available.

Better build quality, higher sustained read and write speeds, less chance of early failure and better customer service in case you need to return it.

The Crucial MX500 is a solid middle to upper tier SSD and the odds of it lasting you a long time are very high.

That being said, there was a $54.99 Samsung 860 Evo 500GB deal @ Staples which sold out within an hour today, so I'd keep my eyes open on r/bapcsalescanada

Personally I would take https://www.amazon.ca/XPG-GAMMIX-NAND-Gen3x4-AGAMMIXS11P-1TT-C/dp/B07KZNTZYB over a 1tb drive + SSD which I think is a strategy that is increasingly becoming obsolete because you will get significantly better acoustics especially at idle as well as performance. Less capacity but still. As we approach 2020 I'm starting to advocate ditching spinning rust for most users.

If using i5-9600k specifically you can get away with the 650w and dropping the second eps connector and saving some coin. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WrNypg/seasonic-focus-plus-gold-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-650fx

Ryzen 2600 for $200 from Amazon. Put that $30 back in your wallet homeboy.

This monitor has been suiting me well. Might be confusing to navigate at first when setting up so you could try finding some YouTube videos on it.

u/basicsthespaceman · 1 pointr/bapccanada

Thinking about pulling the trigger on these to start:

https://www.mikescomputershop.com/product/8758623 (zotac mini 1070 ti $505 after rebate)

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07B41WS48/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&psc=1 (ryzen 5 2600 $200)

Any reasons not to?
