Just want a typically gamer build to help me game with the boys late night :)
Haven't built one in 20 years, this would be nice to have.
looking into pc gaming and think this would be a good starting point
Definitely better than what I am using right now!
Time for an upgrade from my old Phenom II. Something that can game and edit videos.
What I would upgrade to :D
Big fan of the Asus cases they look super nice especially this ASUS ROG STRIX HELIO GX601 in sleek black with that nice RGB glow.
Got to add some RGB bling to this wonderful case as well - Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro SL 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 a little overkill for others, but good for years to come and of course light up your room like a disco.
Than of course lastly we need to pay homage to Microcenter and add some storage, got to go with the Inland - Platinum 4tb SSD SSD M.2 2280 NVMe enough for the Windows 10 operating system and more than enough storage for games!
A little overkill, but for someone who normally waits 4-5 years to build a pc this will last and of course sort of future proof as it will still destroy most games 4-10 years from now if Moore's law isn't dead :D
Thanks to Microcenter and ASUS on this community event best of luck to the lucky winner!
This is a good base for a new PC. I currently have gigabyte hardware and am seriously considering switching to ASUS.
This would be my "dream system" that I'll never be able to afford but it's nice to dream
I'll admit that some of this stuff I just picked as a placeholder but it's mainly about updating my CPU, motherboard and RAM. I'd love to be a bit more set up so I could play some games and not have it slow down on me or lag or crash or any other things I use as an excuse for why I lost the match. I'm not big into the flashy lights or anything like that and I'd consider maybe doing some streaming for gaming but I'm not sure I'd want my face online. It'd be nice to have something that could at least record and edit videos so I could put them up later. And plenty of hard drive space because I just collect games and have tons of family pictures/videos that I want to keep. I always seem to be running out of space and I'd like to even replace some of my old hard drives just in case they fail.
This build is a lot closer to a dream build than a realistic one for me. I'm currently aiming for a Ryzen 5 3600 and maybe a B550 motherboard if I can afford that. I'll stick with my GTX 970 for now as I'm not about to go spend hundreds and hundreds on the top of the line. I'm always years and years behind on technology and I've gotten pretty used to it. Would be nice to be ahead of the game one of these days but it's not that important. Just wishful thinking.
My build is revolved around my lifestyle and hobbies in both in and out of University.
Barebones Kit - Chose Performance as 3080Ti is impossible to get and not looking for "Best of the Best" to consider the Ultimate kit. Plus all I need is a motherboard with AI Noise Cancelation, AI Cooling & AI Networking with WIFI 6. The RGB is just a little something to spice things up.
CPU - Went for intel i9 11900K CPU as my current i7 8700k can barely hold up to Battlefield V without overheating; also would minimize lag when rendering my illustrations on Photoshop (I tend to use big canvases) (Chose over Ryzen as I wont be overclocking much).
Memory - Went for 64GB (2x32) G-Skill TridentZ for Adobe Software and load more assets when developing.
SSD - Went for 2TB SSD as I would like to download my Dev & other applications on SSD instead of a Hard drive. (Currently have everything stored in hard drive except for Operating System & Drivers).
Hard Drive - Went for 2TB as I won't need more because of the 2TB SSD (Hard Drive will store Games and Files).
OS - Windows, because I can remote desktop to a Linux OS if needed during dev'ing.
**Love The Builder tool, giving a template depending on budget is a great approach. I know many people who don't have PC's because their afraid of their budget**
i have been thirsting to get started with PC gaming and i think a build like this would be a great first step for me! i don't have a ton of budget and i wont have much wiggle room in the future, so being as economic as possible while also future proofing for 3+ years is a hard balance to drive, can't just buy the cheapest rig available
Started with the performance build because I liked the case, then turned it into the extreme build.
We go for broke.
In all senses of the term.
Here is my awesome Asus build. I wanted the performance PC as the case isn't too large for my room, and a sick processor for rendering. Everything in this build would do me well as a graphic designer :). Of course I needed a 2tb Gen 4 ssd to hold all my large photoshop documents, and a large 2tb hard drive for extra games and such. I only need 32gb of ram, but I would love some more in the future! And of course windows as it's the best platform for everyday use.
From the barebones kit to my own upgraded version.
Just moved into college and looking to upgrade my only PC. Need this upgrade to be able to play the newest titles and enjoy stable FPS and high looking graphics without the lag of my older systems. ASUS never disappoints so this build is already top tier.
EVEN THOUGH, the barebones kit is upgraded in my version I am still surprised how well priced it is. From the Motherboard to graphics card, it truly does seem like the best bang for your buck!!!
That ASUS 3070 really seals the deal for me...
This would be my first desktop platform. I've been running virtual machines for class on a laptop, and it's honestly not the best solution.
Admittedly this is not customized from the most advanced one, but I need to do more research. I would love a PC to be optimized for VR.
I just took the AMD Ultimate configuration and upgraded it some more.
I have a few problems with this particular part selector tool:
1) Why can't I choose a better motherboard?
2) No option to upgrade the cooling solution. 240mm is all you get.
3) This is the deal breaker here because it is completely anti-competitive: Nvidia is the only option of GPU to go with, even though a truly informed enthusiast might actually choose an AMD GPU for reasons like Smart Access Memory when paired with a Ryzen 3000/5000 processor.
Sorry, Asus, you really missed the mark with this one.
