well since taxes are coming i decided to build a computer again. ive researched, and researched... and researched. and i think i have it down. the computer will be used for basic stuff and light gaming. the most intensive game itll prob see would be world of tanks. but anyway heres what i got. (some may seem overkill but im going for future proof too)

 

motherboard: asrock x370 taichi (have checked and re-checked, a bois update made this board ryzen 2nd gen friendly)

cpu: amd ryzen 7 2700 (sorry hate intel)(and on-board video)

ram: g.skill flare x ddr 16g (2x8) @ 2400

gpu: asrock phantom gaming x radeon rx570 256bit, 8g

getting a WD black nvme m.2 2280, 250g

powering it all with a evga supernova g3 650w 80+ gold.

 

data storage and maybe water cooling at some other time in the future. im pretty sure it will all be fine but id like to make sure. im no expect lol.

Gday darkmj16, welcome.

 

Your selected parts are compatible and will work well together.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vP9JXP  $854.73

I note that the total system draw is only 236W, so I think your PSU is overkill, unless you are going to run two GPUs.

 

Please consider this slightly altered configuration, > https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yFbXBb 889.73

System draw, 276W, leaves plenty of capacity for extra drives using a 550W PSU, has a Warranty period 10 years.

Why I would go 2700X > https://www.tomshard...iew,5606-9.html

Go with the later X470 chipset on the Taichi, cost a dollar more and you get extra features, and no need to flash the BIOS.

Your very welcome.

Download the MB manual so you can familiarize yourself with it.   Pay particular attention to the RAM configuration, as I think it has to be installed in single channel mode???

PCP is a site where you can search for the parts you want in your build.   It lists the cheapest prices it has stored, but only from sites that are registered with it.

On the builds listed below some parts come from other vendors that are cheaper than Newegg,  so you must buy from the vendor listed to get the cheapest price.  

 

Go to https://pcpartpicker.com/and at the top left, click on  System Build,  When the window opens, click on Choose a CPU, on the left menu, select the details for the CPU you want.

on the right hand side list, click on the CPU you want.   The sellers of the selected part are then displyed, cheapest at the top.

it is then up to you to select the vender you want to use, and it is added to your parts list.

 

Your original build.  https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vP9JXP

My suggested build. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vP9JXP

 

Please download your user manual, have a read about RAM installation, I will get back to you later.

Not crazy, had issues getting the links to function properly.

 

"if i understand those "charts" the 2400 dual channel kit i want is perfect.... correct?"

Correct.

 

Knowing all there is to know about SR (ss) and DR (ds)  RAM, is not all that important, you just need to know what type you have, (compatible with your computer) and put it into the correct slots on the MB, but here is a simple explanation, > https://www.oempcwor...evsDualRAM.html

 

On page 26 of your manual.  The chart is for your CPU, (pinnacle Ridge)  Insert you sticks into slots A2 and B2.

See MB layout page 8.

 

We are here to help, so any questions at all, please post. 

Keep us informed on how you go.

Looks a bretty good build.   Just a couple of notes.

Your liquid cooler rad has to go on the, top, outside of the case.

At the bottom of the build list, possible compatibility, needs checking out. https://www.rosewill...M_Tyrfing_1.pdf

  • The Corsair - H55 57 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler may require a separately available mounting adapter to fit the ASRock - X370 Taichi ATX AM4 Motherboard.
