Want help?
State the budget & CURRENCY
Post at least some attempt at a parts list
List your uses, e.g. Gaming, Video Editing, VM Work
For monitors, include purpose (e.g., photoediting, gaming) and graphics card pairing (if applicable)

CPUs based on current pricing:
Athlon 200GE - HTPC, web browsing, bare minimum gaming (can be OC'd on some MSI mobos)
R3 2200G - Recommended minimum gaming
R5 2600/X - Good gaming & multithreaded work use CPUs
i7-9700k/8700k - Extreme setup with RTX 2080/Ti
R7 2700/X - Best value high-end CPU on a non-HEDT platform
Threadripper/Used Xeon - HEDT

RAM:
Always choose at least a two stick kit; 2x 8GB is recommended
CPUs benefit from high speed RAM; 3000CL15 or 3200CL16 is ideal
All AMD chipsets and Intel Z chipsets support XMP

Graphics cards based on current pricing:
Used cards can be had for a steal; inquire about warranty
1080p
GTX 1060, RX 570, RX 580 are standard choices
GTX 1070/Ti if you're looking for very high (100+) framerates and you have a CPU and monitor to match
1440p
GTX 1070/Ti are standard choices
RTX 2080 if you're looking for very high (100+) framerates and you have a CPU and monitor to match
2160p (4K)
RTX 2080 is the standard choice
RTX 2080Ti is better for 4K but expensive

General:
PLAN YOUR BUILD AROUND YOUR MONITOR IF GAMING
A 256GB or larger SSD is almost mandatory; consider m.2 form factor

For French and perhaps other Europeans: there's a sale going on on Gigabyte's Vega 56. 300€ plus "up to 3 games", which are the "usual" ones: Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2. Even without the games, it's a pretty decent deal considering we know little about 2060 prices. I'm hesitating to order one 2bh.

I'm looking to build a portable PC that I can bring to my local fighting game scene. I'd mainly be playing Rev2, fightcade stuff and emulation on this computer. Nothing else.

Any suggestions are welcome as this is my first intel build. I'd really like to keep the Silverstone case since it's quite small and portable. The GPU is an old one I have that I'm gonna see if it fits but if you have a better/cheap GPU, then I'd appreciate it.

Thank you.

Adam Kelly

The CPU cooler is way more powerful than what you need for Ryzen. Get a thick air cooler instead, but make sure it fits your case. In your case the H500 apparently has a maximum height for CPU coolers of 165 mm.
pcpartpicker.com/products/cpu-cooler/#sort=-rating&X=0,6054&c=33&W=0&R=5,4&page=1&H=14000000,165000000

The RAM is kinda bad, as the OP says 3000 MHz CL15 is usually the sweet spot.
pcpartpicker.com/products/memory/#Z=16384002&sort=price&t=14&s=403000,403200

As for the GPU, it's a model warned against in the OP.
rentry.co/pcbg-more#graphics-cards-continued
Avoid cheap MODELS ie [...] Gigabyte Wf, [...], and others which have small heatsinks and low quality fans
To expand on this, many cards are basically meant to die soon after their warranty expires. Heat can kill components on the card besides the GPU itself. So not only are poor quality coolers louder, they will typically have a worse longevity.
I don't know how true it is myself, but you should probably look at some reviews for that particular model.

The PSU is also more powerful than you need, but it's a good price so it doesn't matter. I think the G2 and G3 series are newer, and the same price, so consider those as well. pcpartpicker.com/products/power-supply/#m=14,71&p=1,2&e=6,5,4&sort=price&page=1

Buy AMD, cheaper for the same performances as a 8400. Especially since you'll be locked at 60FPS anyway. Hell, I'm almost sure you could even get a cheaper GPU since fighting games aren't exactly expensive in resources.

They're DRAM-less so performance and reliability isn't as great as other drives. It's also probably the model they cheap out on most since they don't list any specific components so they can easily substitute in even cheaper NAND and controllers without notice. It's okay as a secondary drive, but get something better for your OS.

Any suggestions for an AMD CPU then? I was gonna try an i5 since I always heard how better intel was during that era, plus I'm not paying i7 prices for something I'm only gonna use twice a week. I have an FX-8350 in my older build, but as far as I know there are currently no mini itx boards for it. I really wish I could find another case that's identical to thatSilverstone one, It's perfect.

I'm salvaging my old build's SSD, GPU and potentially ram for this portable PC.

Try to OC it. Although it shouldn't matter a whole lot since you're not trying to achieve optimal performance, AMD likes faster RAM. You need it to be at least 2666MHz however.

RAM, fans and the motherboard can all be rebrought to fit but i just cant find any PSUs capable of fitting enough power for it in such a small space

Got my 2080 in the mail over the weekend. Not as quiet and cool as my 1070, unfortunate, but that's to be expected with the large increase in power draw. I feel like heat output of these cards largely gets glossed over in any discussion about them. If Vega VII runs at 300W+ it's really going to heat up a room if this 225W card is anything to go by.

Landon Peterson
Landon Peterson

A Ryzen 2700 won't offer much benefit over a 2600X if you just want to play games.
Don't pay that much for a 1070. I'd rather take my chances on the 300 dollar Gigabyte Windforce, spend max. 350 for a better 1070 slightly more for a Vega 56.
You could also Wait(tm) for the RTX 2060, which is entirely a sidegrade to the 1070, also costing around 350 USD.

The 2060 is about on par with the 1070 Ti, so it's slightly stronger than the 1070. The 1070 has more VRAM, but for 1080p the difference won't matter.
In addition to this, it's newer meaning it will be longer before Nvidia's (((drivers))) nerf your performance.

So you get rid of Intel to buy used Intel because of security issues Intel has. user, unless it doesn't do what you cant, just keep it. It's dumb.

My point was that you can't really since the issue is in how the processors were build for years. It's not like Intel released a new architecture ever since. technically CPUs without HT have less potential issues (emphasis on potential), but that's about it. It's a pretty pointless reason to change; upgrade to something else if you need it, but if you're just gaming... nah.

It's soldered.

R9 290X with custom cooler for $125
RX 480 (4GB) for $120
RX 570 (4GB) for $120
8GB models of the above are about a $60 markup
Which one should I pick?

My pal recommended me an AOC 144hz monitor, with freesync (says ita nore futureproof if i decide to get a new gpu donw the line).

My PC occasionally makes this high pitched screeching sound (tires coming to halt or chalk on blackboard are the closest comparisons that come to mind, but it's not exactly like that). Any idea where it could be coming from? It's not coil whine, at least it doesn't sound like the examples I looked up.

My prime suspect is HDD, since the sound is fairly new thing and I replaced the drive recently. But I'm paranoid it's the PSU making the noice. I can't locate where the sound is coming from, as it's seemingly random and not occuring under heavy load or something like that. Everything seems to work fine, but I'm scared the PC is going to shit itself any day now.

Looking for the best value, max 500$.

I had the idea to go with an old, 2013 mobo, 8 to 16gb DDR3 and a second hand GPU. Thoughts ?

Canadian here. This was leaked, not sure if it was posted already. $462 CAD would be the MSRP. What do you guys think about RTX 2060 vs GTX 1070 Ti, which is around $530 CAD as well?

1070ti for 8gb of ram if you wsnt 1440p for a long time. 2060 for 1080p

Currently 1080p gaming, but might switch to 1440p in the future when I get a better monitor. The 2060 would be a no-brainer if it actually launches at $462, but considering a lot of different factors, $530 is probably correct.

If the 2060 isnt msrp or less for sure. If more im not buying it either but id buy the founders for 350 for surw

I went ahead and bought it and boy, OH BOY my PC runs so much better.
Monster Hunter World flows so well and without a single stutter, I think it even looks better.
Thanks for helping me decide.

It performs like a 1080 for the same price.

Actually it is one of the least shit 20 series imo.
At least it has an appropriate level of VRAM

Also more expensive than 1080s were before stock ran out.
