Instead of that SSD, I would probably pick up an m.2 card as they are extremely cheap right now. I would go with the Intel 660p 1 TB. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_ptTPCbS4ABCAW

your link takes me to amazon search here is the actual item's link-

https://smile.amazon.com/Intel-660p-1-0TB-80mm-978350/dp/B07GCL6BR4


thanks so much for the heads up, ive been waiting to grab an nvme. amazon works best as it will be here tomorrow!

u/Mkilbride · 10 pointsr/buildapcsales

Whoa. Yeah. Not bad. Regardless. That's still more expensive. Right now for 128$ you can get 1TB Samsung M.2 SSD's.

x9 90$ = 180$, still more expensive. About the same as the HP NVME's really.

https://www.amazon.com/Intel-660p-1-0TB-80mm-978350/dp/B07GCL6BR4

Not to shabby. You're right. Regardless, it's still 32$ more. One could claim "Future proof", but it really isn't. By the time we're needing NVME speeds (I can't even imagine it happening within 7-10 years) in regular workloads, prices will be down more or something even better will exist.

But damn if that isn't a tempting price. Still got a M.2 slot open on my board lol.

Regardless:

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-ssd-660p-qlc-nvme,5719-2.html

There's a reason they're so cheap. Almost half the speed of a Samsung NVME drive. Realistically, if the reason you want a NVME drive is because they're "faster" than SSDs, the Intel one doesn't make too much sense.

I dunno. The whole almost 4Gbps to me is the big deal about NVme. 1.8Gbps isn't too big a deal. My friend had 2Gbps years ago with a raid array of 4 500GB SSDs.

If you're gonna go NVME, might as well go Samsung or at least any that break the 3K+ mark.

PC building notes, 2019 Q3


Introduction


This post is a a "guide" to PC building in late 2019. It is incomplete
in two senses. First, I make no special claims to authority or objectivity.
I'm just an enthusiast. I have only personally tested a fraction of the parts
listed below. Second, I am writing this before the Intel 10th-gen refresh
and before the release AMD's flagship 3950X. Those new parts may impact some
of the advice given below.

This guide is extremely opinionated. I will simplify and exaggerate to
keep things simple.

This post was written while drinking whisky and listening to
enka.

Internals


What's inside your PC


A PC has seven core components. They are,

  1. CPU: the central processing unit. The thing that does calculations.
  2. Motherboard: the bit that all the other bits slot into
  3. GPU: the graphics processing unit. For frames in games.
  4. RAM: Random Access Memory. Fast, volatile, short-term storage.
  5. Storage: longer-term storage. Comes in several flavors, mainly solid state
    and hard disk.
  6. PSU: the power supply unit. The bit that delivers power to the other bits.
  7. Case: a steel box that you put the other bits in.

    A word first on compatibility. The skeleton of the build is the motherboard,
    and you have to make sure that every other bit is compatible with your board.
    There are two CPU manufacturers, AMD and Intel; each has their own CPU
    design and thus has their own motherboard type. RAM, storage, PSUs, and GPUs
    are all cross-compatible with either AMD or Intel motherboards.
    Motherboards come in different sizes. A case will be compatible with certain
    size ranges. From small to big, these are ITX, m-ATX, ATX, and
    E-ATX. You'll want to check that your motherboard can fit in your case.

    CPUs


    AMD's most current CPUs are the 3000-series Ryzen chips. There are a bunch
    of them, but the only two you have to care about are the

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600 ($200)
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700X ($330)

    The other options are the 3600X, the 3800X, and the 3900X. None of these
    are interesting compared to the two listed above, and can be safely ignored.

    Intel's current CPUs are the 9th-gen Core chips. I would only seriously
    consider two of these chips,

  • Intel i7-9700K ($380)
  • Intel i9-9900K ($450-$500)

    and I'd ignore the rest. If you want to spend less than $350 on a CPU,
    then go AMD. If you want to spend more than $350 on a CPU,
    go Intel.

    A word about prior-gen chips. The AMD 2000 series (2700X, 2600) and the
    Intel 8th gen series (8700K) are still viable at the right price. Look at
    benchmarks. More on that later.

    A word about lower-spec CPUs. AMD sells cheap CPUs that have integrated
    graphics. That means you don't need to buy a graphics card with these chips.
    As such, a build with the 3400G or 3200G can be extremely inexpensive. Consider
    them for office use or basic builds that don't require heavy graphics.
    I have personally tested them and they play 4K video flawlessly; they should
    be perfectly adequate for basic tasks.

    For scientific workloads, ask me to write another post. I can't cover
    everything here.


    Motherboard


    Motherboards only accept either AMD or Intel CPUs, but not both, so you must
    choose a board that is compatible with your CPU.
    Once you decide between AMD or Intel, you can proceed to figure out which
    motherboard you want. There are approximately six billion boards. For AMD,
    skip the hassle and just buy the

  • MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX

    Note the "MAX." The Tomahawk was released during the 1000- and 2000-series
    of AMD processors. The MAX variant is compatible with 3000-series chips
    out of the box.

    For Intel, I know far less. Any Z390 board should be acceptable.

    For AMD, the new X570 boards are available as well. They are pricey and
    overkill for 90% of desktop users. Feel free to skip them. Look out for the
    B550 boards that are to be released in 2020Q1.


    GPU


    There are two main manufacturers of GPUs: AMD and Nvidia. Confusingly, they
    do not sell GPUs themselves, but market them through partners like MSI,
    EVGA, PowerColor, Sapphire, etc.

    The GPU stack is a little confusing.
    That chart lists all of the main GPUs on the market, and if you count, there
    are over 25 GPUs listed. Multiply 25 GPUs by 10 or so board partners,
    multiplied again by the fact that each partner sells multiple types of the same
    GPU, and you have a recipe for an absolute nightmare of a market.
    The prices are only approximate.

    Let me cut through the fog. You should buy one of

  • AMD RX 570 ($130)
  • Nvidia 1660 or AMD RX 590 ($220-$280)
  • AMD RX 5700 XT ($400-$430)
  • Nvidia 2080 Super ($700)
  • Nvidia 2080 Ti ($1200)

    Pick your price point.


    RAM


    RAM is distinguished by its generation. We are currently on DDR4, with
    DDR5 to come in either 2020 or 2021. This part is easy. Just buy
    16GB of DDR4 3200-speed RAM and be done with it.
    This kit
    will set you back $75 to $85 depending on the day of the week and will perform
    adequately for 99.98% of users.

    Storage


    In 2019, there is no excuse for not buying fast solid-state storage.
    For 90% of users, you should buy either the 500GB or 1TB variant of the
    Intel 660p and call it a day.
    This reviewer
    is 100% paid off by Intel, but he's also right on this topic. Buy a 660p
    and rest easy.

    For enthusiasts, the 660p uses new, cheap, somewhat fragile QLC NAND technology
    and you might want to go with a Samsung 970 instead.

    That does it for your boot drive. If you need further long-term storage for
    music, movies, videos, games, etc, look into either Seagate or WD's 8TB to
    12TB options.

    I personally have a few WD Gold 12TB drives. They're pricey, but they're
    enterprise-grade and haven't done me wrong yet. My firm, which buys storage
    by the truckload, loves these things. They rarely fail.

    I personally am using a 660p for OS, a second SSD for
    some of my media, and HDDs for long-term storage.

    Power


    I have neither the time nor the expertise to get into a deep discussion of
    power supplies. The topic is apparently very complicated. You should buy
    something in the 550W to 750W from a manufacturer like Corsair, EVGA,
    or CoolerMaster. Make sure it has the number of VGA connectors that your GPU
    requires.

    Case


    The case is the place to really personalize your build. Try not to spend
    more than $100, though; at the end of the day, it's just a steel box.

    Peripherals


    In some ways, the bits outside the computer are more important than the bits
    inside. After all, these are the bits you interact with on a daily basis.

  • Monitors
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Headphones or speakers
  • Chair
  • Desk

    Monitors


    Monitors are distinguished by size and resolution.

    The resolutions available are 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. I recommend the following.

  • 24" 1080p for entry-level gaming and for most office work
  • 25" or 27" 1440p
  • 32" or higher 4K

    You may also care about refresh rate; the most common refresh rates are 60Hz
    and 144Hz. These only matter for gaming.

    One particular sweet spot is the "1440p, 27", 144Hz refresh rate" class. Look
    up benchmarks and comparison videos.

    Keyboard


    Pick to taste. Some swear by mechanical keyboards. Others buy standalone
    keyboards that mimic the laptop keyboard that they're used to.

    Mouse

    I have used the Logitech G500 and Logitech G403, and both are fine. They're
    somewhat expensive and will run you about $70.

    Sound


    There are a million ways to fulfill your sound needs. For wired headsets,
    the bone-stock recommendation is the AudioTechnica ATH-M50x.
    For speakers, I can recommend the Klipsch 2+1.

    For more earphone and headphone suggestions, ask me for an extended discussion.

    Chair and desk


    Don't neglect these. You'll be sitting at that chair for several hours per
    day, and you'll use that desk forever. Measure how wide your monitors will be
    and buy a desk accordingly. Go to an office supply shop and sit in a few chairs;
    pick one that you like. Your desk and chair will last forever, so don't be
    afraid to spend a little money here.

    Advice


    Read Logical Increments in its entirety.

    Watch videos from real, serious hardware reviewers. I recommend
    Gamers Nexus, Paul's Hardware, and Hardware Unboxed. Anyone else is either
    subpar or bought out or provides worthless advice.

    Do research, think for yourself, and ask me questions. I'll either give you
    advice or point you to reliable resources if I think my advice would be lacking.

So about as close as I can get to that sort of price, giving you more performance for your money (just by building yourself) is as follows:

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X

    Rather than a 6-core, 6-thread CPU in the your above build, we've gone instead for a 8-core, 16-thread CPU. This will give you far more performance for productivity and is one of the main keys with Adobe. The more CPU performance you can throw at it the better, so this is a bit of a no-brainer. AMD also provide a really good quality cooler in the box, so no need to get an extra one.

  • RAM: G.SKILL Sniper X 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz


    So we're very specifically jumping up here again to a lot more RAM (32GB) and it's a lot faster too. Again, this is a must with Adobe as when it renders video it'll dump the files through the RAM, so the more you have the better. Plus having this much helps with caching in general as well as overall multitasking performance.

  • Motherboard: MSI B450-A PRO

    Pretty much comes singing and dancing. However, when you purchase, make sure this has the recent BIOS update for the newer CPU you're buying. Newegg support are usually good for confirming this before your purchase just through their chat service, so if you ask them if this item of stock has the update to use the above linked CPU, they'll confirm that for you. (99% of new stock out there has had updated BIOS already now, so it's not really an issue, yet it's always worth double checking).

  • GPU: GTX 1660

    This part we can leave the same really. Adobe isn't super GPU intensive, preferring CPU over anything else, so this is powerful enough for anything your camera can chuck out. If you ever feel like doing a LOT more color grading, 3D animation work down the line, then this is the part you'd need to look at upgrading to something a bit more powerful. Yet until then, this is perfectly fine.

  • Main Storage: WesternDigital 2TB HDD

    A large traditional storage as believe you me, you'll end up using it once you've finished with projects. Only use this for storage of files after you're done with them as well as installing your software onto this. This drive gives you double what you had in the above build alone, so it's more to fill up ;)

  • Performance Drive: Intel 660 1TB SSD

    This is your "work" drive. So when you're working on video, store it on this. When you're saving your projects, save it on this. When you're doing the initial render (before storing it) do it onto this. This has a 1800MB/s read and write speed, so while budget is a bit of an issue we're going with a larger drive so you can use it for a lot of purposes. You'll eventually find your bigger upgrade here is having multiple M.2 drives rather than just 1, so you can run them in RAID for even better performance and data security but as that'd normally be in a much bigger build than the budget, this is plenty for now and gives far more fast storage than the original build.

  • PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3

    An improved power supply to provide more overheads and power protection against things like surges and sudden power loss. Also fully modular, so it's again really easy to build with.

  • Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400

    I'm more than a little impartial with this case as my current gaming build is in this but it's such a nice sleek looking case for everything.

  • OS: Windows 10 Home

    Last piece of the puzzle. This just comes on USB so once you've built the PC, you just plug this into one of the USB ports on the front of the case and your system will go through the installation for you. Nice and simple :)

    Total Price: $1262.92


    That's about as good as I can do at first glance. The thing about PC building yourself is that it's very customization friendly! So although I've given this build, you could probably post in other places and get slightly different answers. Main thing is the CPU, RAM and giving you enough storage.
u/ROLL_TID3R · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Look into the NVMe M.2 Intel 660p. It isn’t as fast as those recommendations above, but it’s still over twice as fast as your standard 2.5” SATA SSD, has 1 TB of storage, and is just over $100.

u/Flektron · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

For you or anyone wondering here is the build list, I used storage and PSU from old build. Also bought an NVME M.2 SSD 1tb for 100$.

u/Timtheuselessgod · 3 pointsr/PcBuild

I’d save a bit of money and go with a b450 board unless you absolutely need the pcie 4.0. this MSI tomahawk is good or this Gaming pro Carbon if you want wifi built in. The other things I’d swap is your ssd for an intel 660p. It’s cheaper and faster.

As for a cooler, with the black theme you’ve got going a dark rock pro 4 would look pretty sweet in there, just check compatibility with your memory for clearance.

u/paradyme · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

How does something like the Intell 660p compare to this or the Silicon Power one? Seems like Intel would be fine for casual use, what is the usecase for these new brand ones?

u/mattymims · 3 pointsr/buildapcforme

I'd say:

CPU - Ryzen 5 2600 for $129.30 on Amazon

RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory for $65.99 on Amazon

GPU - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB WINDFORCE OC for $279.99 on Amazon

Case - NZXT H500 ATX Mid Tower for $69.99 on Amazon

PSU - Corsair CXM 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular for $57.96 on Amazon

Monitor - Sceptre C248B-144RN 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz for $154.99 on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Sceptre-Edge-Less-FreeSync-DisplayPort-C248B-144RN/dp/B07MTMCNLX/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2N0O44FUFH3W9&keywords=sceptre+monitor&qid=1568701318&s=electronics&sprefix=sceptre+moni%2Celectronics%2C190&sr=1-2

Total = $758.22

Those things are what I would recommend whole-heartedly, but the Storage and MoBo depends on you:

Storage:

- HP EX900 500 GB for $52.99 on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B2ZVJ5F/?tag=pcpapi-20

- Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB for $94.99 on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GCL6BR4/?tag=pcpapi-20

Motherboard

- If no overclock - ASRock B450M/AC (It has WiFi) for $74.99 on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SY8CMTX/?tag=pcpapi-20

- If yes overclock - Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING for $119.99 on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FKTZC4M/?tag=pcpapi-20

​

Cheapest build I'd recommend is $758.22 + $52.99 + $74.99 = $886.20 but you have the option for a bit of extra storage and/or performance if you'd like.

u/m1kepro · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I love the build, but there's one thing I'd definitely change and one thing you might want to look into changing:

The Hyper 212 Evo is a decent cooler, but I have some serious reservations that it can keep up with an HEDT processor, especially a 12-core. Nearly any AIO water cooler will do a better job, but this is the one I use on my 9900K.

The "maybe" change is much more straightforward: For the price, your 860 Evo is a good SSD, but you could have much faster storage for the same price by going with something like a 660p NVMe. This would also help offset some of the change in price to get an AIO water cooler.

Other than that, this is an excellent build! It's basically the HEDT version of my 9900K/Z390 Taichi Ultimate/RTX 2080 Ti build called KAIOKENxTEN, which I use for gaming and video editing. You won't be disappointed.

u/Slayer_Blake · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

$110 on Amazon if you prefer Amazon or have credit to burn

u/computer_fan · 2 pointsr/buildapc

SSDs can be made with different types of NAND flash. The EVO uses TLC NAND, and the QVC uses QLC NAND. QLC is slower, and has worse endurance. TLC is not top shelf, but better than QLC.

However, you probably won't notice a speed difference unless you're a video editor or have some other super heavy workload. Likewise, the endurance issue is not really going to be a problem for a normal user. Get the cheaper QVO unless you're editing 8k video all day every day.

Or better yet, get the 1tb Intel 660p for $109. It's QLC like the QVO, but uses the nVME connection, which is a faster than than SATA. An nVME QLC drive will be faster than a SATA TLC drive, as SATA is a bottleneck (one of the reasons why the QVO and EVO are so similar, the speed of SATA is a limiting factor). It also regularly goes on sale for around $95 .

But if you're editing 8k video you'd probably want to upgrade to higher end SSD like SX8200 Pro or 970 EVO (but they're roughly 2x the cost)

u/TThor · 2 pointsr/hardware

I gotta ask how long ago you bought an NVMe M.2 SSD, because currently, an NVMe M.2 SSd is virtually the same price as a SATA SSD.

Crucial MX500 SSD 1TB, the most common sata SSD I see recommended around here; $129.

Intel 660p SSD 1TB, the most commonly recommended consumer NVMe SSD; $109, with triple of the speed of the MX500.

It feels like a lot of people around here built their computers 6+ months ago and haven't checked the prices since; NVMe SSDs certainly used to carry a price premium, but these days they are barely any different.

u/MrDraagyn · 2 pointsr/buildapc

One thing I'm noticing is the non-modular PSU. I would look at getting something that is fully modular, or even semi-modular. It's just easier to work with and I think easier to mantain better cord management.

For the CPU, I would take a look at the 9400 not the 9400F. As far as I can tell, at least in the states, the 9400 is the same price, it's just slightly faster and a bit newer.

The SSD - the 750 Evo seems more expensive than what it's worth. I would take a look at an NVMe drive like the Intel 660p. For 1TB of space, your getting something that is much MUCH faster and, at least in the states, is only $4 more expensive:
Intel SSD 660p Series https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_85L2CbQP2JY6Y

Then, this way, if you get the faster Intel SSD, you can ditch the HDD, because you'll have 1TB as a boot drive and storage, most likely saving another $50 as well.

EDIT: Also, it seems like the case you're looking at is a full-ATX (correct me if I'm wrong) so then why are you going for a mATX board? You could get something a bit faster, better with cooling, and probably cheaper if you got a full-sized board like this one:
MSI Performance Gaming B360 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CBKQ75V/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_agM2CbBWA8CJP

Same price in the USA as the board you've chosen.

Edit 2: Also, I can't find the PSU anywhere come to think of it. Don't buy a used PSU, that is one of the general no-nos, because those things deteriorate over time, what you think is a 500W is possibly only 350W to 400W. Stick with EVGA or Corsair even SeaSonic.

Your CDI pic is currently just your timestamp again and like someone else pointed out, the going rate is a quite bit lower:

Edit: Saw edit. Makes more sense for 2TB.

u/CMDR_Bogan · 2 pointsr/sffpc

I am using the MSI B450I and can confirm that it is working just fine with a non beta, stable bios. In fact, for the ITX boards the beta bios was working alright for me long before other boards were working well (looking at you Asus). The only downside is you need it flashed if you don't already have an older zen CPU.

I helped a friend build with the Gigabyte X570 and it's working just fine as well, it's a really great board. However, keep in mind you could really save some money and get the MSI board. Also, in terms of VRM's is the best you can buy. The fact that it just plain works (once you update the bios), is an added bonus considering how new everything is.

Concerning GPU, if you are willing to wait until next month, you will be able to buy open air coolers from other manufacturers. I don't have a 580, but my understanding is that it's fine. However, the 5700xt is much more powerful. I imagine that an open air Gaming X version from MSI will run basically silent. I'm sure other brands will produce silent amazing cards as well.

For memory, consider getting some Micron E-die, they overclock VERY well, and are only ~1mm taller than the LPX you have listed. Mine are running at 3600 cl 16 via MSI's "Memory Try It!" functionality. Basically, it's a single button overclock on your memory so you don't have to do it yourself. It's rock solid stable too.

Finally, concerning the NVME drive you have listed, it's 100% true that Samsung makes amazingly fast NVME drives and are arguably the best you can buy. However, are you really going to notice fractional seconds of load time over say a 1 or 2TB intel 660p? I'm currently running the 2TB 660p that I got for $200, and you can get a 1TB model for $95. That's double the space, for essentially the same performance. I understand the Samsung numbers are much higher, but those only really apply to specific applications like heavy database I/O. For day to day users and gaming, you won't be able to tell the difference. If you really want the 970 Evo because you want it, go for it, buy what you want. If you want more space for effectively the same performance, buy the 660p, I can confirm that it flies, and is amazing. I am so happy I bought it over the Samsung, because I have double the space for the same price and effectively the same speed.

​

Hope this was helpful, and enjoy your Dan Case, it's an amazing case.

Looks good. I'm +1 with everyone else who has said 'SSD' with the caveat of choosing a better SSD than the one you have chosen in system builder. The 860 is a SATAIII drive and at 500gb will fill with modern games fast.

If budget is an issue, I'd go this route instead.

(Newegg) https://www.newegg.com/intel-660p-series-1tb/p/N82E16820167462?cm_sp=SearchSuccess-_-INFOCARD-_-intel+660+ssd-_-20-167-462-_-1&Description=intel+660+ssd

or (Amazon) https://smile.amazon.com/Intel-660p-1-0TB-80mm-SSDPEKNW010T8X1/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=dp_ob_title_def

The Intel 660p (1tb) is not the fastest NVME drive by any metric but its still 3 times faster than any SATAIII based drive. Plus the extra room is well worth the extra +$20 dollars it would cost.

Again, everything else looks fine, especially if you already have a monitor/KB/mouse and OS. Good luck!

I edited in an ssd in the prior comment but also I would swap in this ssd as it’s faster and again less cables in the case

u/Manic006 · 1 pointr/Seaofthieves

I suggest using a NVMe SSD. Switching to that has dramatically changed how fast I load in starting the game, swapping servers and black screens load times. Now if you are talking about arena load times such as the long wait to get into a match, the set up below can't fix that.

This is the set up I went to with my Xbox One X if anyone is interested:

u/_Fuck_The_Mods__ · 1 pointr/buildapc

I just bought the Intel 660 series SSD that was on sale yesterday. Link: Intel SSD 660p Series (1.0TB M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x 4 3D2 QLC) 2 2281"

However, this just went on sale: HP EX920 M.2 512GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 3D TLC NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Should I return the Intel SSD for the HP?

Here is my build so far: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/dFKbq4

Thanks.

u/podboi · 1 pointr/buildapc

Not necessarily the best, but for your use case it should be more than enough.

Intel 660p 60 bucks for 500gb variant 100 bucks for 1tb.

u/ireallylikechikin · 1 pointr/buildapc

looks great. have you seen this SSD? it might cost less than the 860

u/Anen-o-me · 1 pointr/buildapc

The Intel 660P is just able the best you can get, apart from the Samsung SSDs.

u/wtfomglols · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

you can do a bit for bit copy (not really recommended, drivers and all that jazz)

I had to move my OS from HDD to SSD a few years back and used a tool called Corsair Toolbox and it worked a treat. It did require having both drives plugged in at the same time though.

What I'd recommend is that you take the data you need onto an ext disk, swap the SSD and the rebuild the OS.

Also, you can get this for cheaper and double the storage capacity. I have the 512 model and it's good!

Looking to get an m.2 SSD for games. Deciding on either this WD Blue or this Intel one. Is there a significant speed difference to justify an extra $15? I don't mind spending it but I don't see a point in extra money if they're rather similar.

u/cherrypowdah · 1 pointr/buildapc

Get intel 1TB 660p for the windows install drive https://www.amazon.com/Intel-660p-512GB-80mm-978349/dp/B07GCL6BR4?th=1&psc=1

If you go the 1080ti route consider getting a 144hz 1440p display instead of the 1080p


Extra: 8TB ironwolf hdd for storage
https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-IronWolf-3-5-Inch-Internal-ST8000VN0022/dp/B01M1BUBSO

Albeit slightly more expensive, I would also get an AIO (corsair h115i) instead of the dark rock cooler from be quiet, it's much easier to mount, is more silent for longer and doesn't block the LED lights off the motherboard, extra top fans will also help cooling the GPU if you top mount the radiator and set the fans to blow upwards

u/TheLastWatermelon · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Hopefully the last thing I'll bug you with, I think I'm almost done with the build. I went with the Intel 660 SSD and I don't think it works with the build, it's just a chip that you install directly into the motherboard instead of a box you mount and plug a wire in, and it doesn't seem to fit anywhere unless I'm missing something. I probably got the wrong type of SSD? I should have done more research

u/ElectronicsWizardry · 1 pointr/buildapc

Just saying, for most desktop uses, you won't notice the difference in speed. Id personally save the money and get a cheaper nvme like this one or a sata drive.https://www.amazon.com/Intel-660p-1-0TB-80mm-978350/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1542063444&sr=8-2&keywords=660p

I read on pcpartspicker that they are. However; it says slot #1 will disable 2 sata ports. I believe there are 4 on this mobo. So will sata ports #1 and #2 be disabled but #3 and #4 still functional?

Thanks for the help and sorry if dumb question.

u/Wolfeh2012 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

If the WD Blue 1TB is a reference to a regular HDD, I'd recommend picking up a 1TB or bigger NVMe since your motherboard supports it.

You can grab 1TB NVMe SSDs for around $100 right now.

This is an NVME for cheaper than the MX500. It's super high rated too. Might be able to sub this in. Thoughts? Intel SSD 660p Series (1.0TB M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x 4 3D2 QLC) 2 2281" (SSDPEKNW010T8X1 ) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ZfohDbP68D4R2

Thank you so much for the reply. I was wanting to go with this 1TB Intel 660p series m.2 SSD drive. It says it is a 2281"

I know very little about this kind of thing. Obviously the numbers are off by 1 but are they essentially the same thing?

this looks like a pretty good deal, would this be similar in speeds to the gammix s11 pro? that's another one i was looking at

Not the best SSD but : Intel SSD 660p Series (1.0TB M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x 4 3D2 QLC) 2 2281" (SSDPEKNW010T8X1) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_FXftDb9YHYKNQ


$130 CAD converts to roughly $100 USD for 1TB nvme SSD. You can get SLC or MLC SSD for roughly $150/1TB.

u/maximum_wages · 1 pointr/buildapc

This drive is the current hotness for SSDs, because of it's price to performance. It is under $100 for 1TB.

SSDs in general are all extremely fast drives but the are limited by SATA speeds which max out at 600MB/s transfer rates in theory. M.2 drives use either multiple SATA lanes (which leaves you less to work with) or they PCIe lanes which have much more bandwidth, allowing them to work at upwards of 3500MB/s. So your typical SATA SSD is going to have reads and writes at around 450 MB/s in reality and your M.2 drives are going to have reads and writes in the 1500-3000MB/s depending on the quality of drive. The 660p isn't the best one out there, but your average consumer won't know the difference between that one and a $350 one, because the technology allows it to perform so well already. And for the most part, the higher in price you go is really only going to give you better write speeds, particularly when the drive is near capacity. At worst, cheap M.2 drives are still beating SATA drives regardless of high utilization.

Is this the link? That does look like a pretty sweet deal.

u/Destroyer2334 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Consider this one: https://www.amazon.it/dp/B07GCL6BR4/?tag=pcp06-21

It's faster than either of those you listed and doesn't cost much more. The BX500 isn't a good idea as it's quite likely to fail.

u/ieatpineapple4lunch · 1 pointr/buildapc

Not building a PC but replacing SSD

Which one should I get

Samsung 970 EVO 500GB for $90

or Intel SSD 660p Series 1 TB for $95

For reference, this is for a MacBook Air with current speeds 300MB/s write and 750MB/s read

Sorry for formatting, on mobile.

Also, the i5 is not a bad option and is not that far off of the i7. If you want to save the extra cash, it may be a good option for you.

As far as upgrade go, I got the m.2 1tb Intel nvme ssd.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_3i7pDb4NJFDQF

Amazing performance for a reasonable price. Then I put the internal 256gb ssd from the xps into an external m.2 enclosure to use as a USB drive. I got this enclosure and love it.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HCPCMKN/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_7AJi73n5Ddapg

And as far as upgrading the ram goes, this corsair kit should serve you nicely. Reasonably priced and solid performance from a reliable company.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019MRBKYG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Cl7pDbD4QNBDQ

This is all assuming that it's cheaper to upgrade yourself I haven't researched exact pricing for the xps 13 recently, but the resources are here for you if you need them :)

u/NotreDamian · 1 pointr/buildapc

The psu is fine, its just i wouldnt cheap out and go lower than 650w. The reason why i said the ssd is overpriced is becasuse you can get double the storage for a little over 50% more such as here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GCL6BR4/?tag=pcpapi-20 I wanted to make sure you know its a qlc drive, as some people buy them without realizing that its not as good as a tlc nvme drive. Getting the 1tb is important imo because the QLC flash slows down alot when its full, and 500gb would fill up fast (at least with me it would)

u/UniversityOutcast · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Well, if you're bound for cheap 2.5in 1TB SSD I would recommend this one from SanDisk https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D998212/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_CVeqDb2QGZNJ9 at $100 or if you have an M.2 slot I'd actually recommend this Intel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GCL6BR4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_lYeqDb3014NGJ at $95
