Good morning,

I am trying to put together a new build and I was wondering if someone could put a quote together for me please.

This is what I have been looking at:

Intel CoffeeLake Core i5 8600K Six Core, 3.6Ghz/4.3Ghz, 9MB LGA1151 Unlocked Processor, No Fan
Samsung 960 EVO 250GB M.2 NVMe SSD (MZ-V6E250BW)
Samsung 850 Pro Series 512GB SATA3 SSD (MZ-7KE512BW)
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro USB Flash Drive 32Bit/64-Bit - Retail (FQC-08789)
EVGA SuperNova 650 G1 650W 80Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply
Corsair Hydro Series H80i V2 Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Gigabyte Z370XP SLI, Intel Z370, DDR4-4000, Dual M.2, Fusion RGB, LGA1151v2 Motherboard
Corsair CMK16GX4M2A2666C16 Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-2666 CL16
Gigabyte GV-N1060WF2OC-3GD GeForce GTX1060 3GB OC WindForce Gaming Video Card

Cost is a big consideration and I am trying to get the build closer to 2.5k without compromising too much on quality. This is the first upgrade in about 6 years so I would like to ensure it is as 'future proof' as possible (within budget) and also able to do a bit of gaming at a reasonable quality although this is not the core consideration because I very rarely get the chance to play any games.

Also I ideally would like to pick something up before the weekend (or on Saturday if you are open), so availabilty I guess is also a consideration.

Thanks


EDIT

I am also toying with idea of replacing my R4 and moving to a Mini ITX case.

Would it be possible to also include a quote based around the Fractal Design Node 202 Mini ITX Case (including SFX PSU, and a smaller card?)

Thanks again

Morning Klib,

I have quoted up a parts list for you as per your request, the only change I had to make was the 850 Pro changed to an EVO just to avoid the delay of ordering stock in.

I also noticed that there wasn't a PC case on your list, were you going to re-use your current case?

Please let me know your thoughts on the above and on your case.

Thanks for that Thomas, appreciate the prompt reply.

A couple of quick questions:


  1. Is there much difference between the EVO and the PRO? What is the wait time?

  2. I was keen for the 6gb GFX card but had to drop back to the 3GB due to price. Are there any changes you could suggest which would fit that card into a similar price (e.g. PSU downgrade)

  3. For some reason I missed your reply and made an edit to the original post regarding a Mini ITX build with the Node 202. Would it be possible to give me a quote which includes appropriate components for an ITX build?


Cheers

Afternoon Klib,


The main difference between the EVO and PRO is the 5 v 10 year warranties, speeds are slightly better but by a marginal amount.


The first change I would make (if possible) is to change you to windows 10 home, unless you need virtualisation or another feature windows home doesn't offer this is un unnecessary expenditure.

Thanks Thomas.

I need to stick with Pro so that is no worries.

If I could get an indication of Price for the Node 202 build that would be great then I will hopefully finalise it this afternoon and look to buy tomorrow.

Afternoon Klib,

Please have a look over your updated quote with the Node 202 added.

Thanks for the response again Thomas.

That last quote with the Node 202 looks good to me.

Can you post up a purchase link when you get a chance.

I assume the PSU will fit in with that card no worries?

Thanks
