Hi I'm looking for advice on a new build. I can't post links because I just joined the forums so I listed as text...I don't care much about RGB looking for high end performance in 4k gaming/VR. I am a little lost with choosing the motherboard, RAM, Case. Also would it be worth it to bump up to i9 instead of i7? My budget is under 3800$. Games would be games like God of war, cyberpunk, WoW, diablo 4. I plan to do some VR too but no specific games in mind yet..
CPU: (1) Intel Core i7-13700K Raptor Lake 3.4GHz Sixteen-Core LGA 1700 Boxed Processor - Heatsink Not Included ($386.98 EACH)
Motherboard: (1) ASUS Z790-P PRIME WiFi Intel LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard ($249.99 EACH)
RAM: (1) Corsair Vengeance 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR5-5200 PC5-41600 CL40 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit CMK64GX5M2B5200 - Black ($219.99 EACH)
Case: (1) Lian Li O11 Dynamic EVO Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - White ($209.99 EACH)
Power Supply: (1) EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G5 1000 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply ($219.99 EACH)
Video Card: (1) ASUS GeForce RTX 4090 TUF Gaming Overclocked Triple-Fan 24GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card ($1,799.99 EACH)
2.5" SSD: (1) Samsung 870 EVO 2TB SSD 3-bit MLC V-NAND SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive ($149.99 EACH)
Water Cooling Kits: (1) Lian Li Galahad 360mm RGB Water Cooling Kit - White ($159.99 EACH)
Operating System: (1) Microsoft Windows 11 Home 64-bit DSP OEM DVD ($119.99 EACH)
Case Fans: (6) Noctua NF-P12 Redux 1700 PWM SSO Bearing 120mm Case Fan ($15.99 EACH)
Are you only looking to use the PC for gaming?
You will need a way to run 6 fans, either splitter cables: Micro Connectors 1 to 2 PWM Sleeved Fan Splitter Cable 10cm (3.94 inches) - Black - Micro Center
or a fan hub: Micro Connectors 12 Port ARGB/PWM Fan and Light Splitter Hub with Magnetic Base - Micro Center
Otherwise your list looks great
I would recommend a 970 Evo instead of the 870 Evo. It is currently cheaper, way faster and easier to install.
