Decided to build sometime in the next 60 days. PC will be used for gaming, running AI and game development. Will be using a small 1080p monitor. Intention is to upgrade the GPU when the new line comes out some time next year. In the meantime, I think the 16 GB 4060 ti will do the trick well enough, but if you want to recommend another GPU in that general price range that would be great.

Honestly looks pretty good. Couple of things I suggest_

1.Get some lower latency RAM for Ryzen, C30-32 and make sure its optimized for AMD/EXPO. It'll help a bit and wont cost you any more.
2. The SSD is a great deal and has DRAM cache which is very good for a boot drive, but there was some talk of it overheating during review which would give me pause. Maybe nothing but just a thought, thats a great price.
3. You dont need a 360 AIO for a 7800X3D, it uses less that 100W under most loads.

Gets you a 4070 for the same price with some other improvements IMO.

The Arctic AIO's have slightly thicker radiators and a small VRM cooler on the CPU block which other manufacturers dont have. They tend to outperform other AIO's of similar size in tests because of the thicker rad. Might have to check dimension in some smaller cases though. Theres an RGB model for about $15 more.

Case is a good one, but a placeholder anyway. Always get something with mesh over a solid front for better cooling anyway, the Lian Li 216 is alright as well.

Based on the suggestions here: If you're actually getting a 4070 wouldn't it be better to probably skip the next gen of videocards? It seems like you'd spending a fair amount of money now on a GPU that you want to replace next year (which starts in less than 30 days).

I'm not sure what to advice though, because you could go for a 4070 and skip next gen, or maybe go for like a second handed 2060 / 3060 and then get a new GPU? I'm not sure how well you could develop games on that.

I said "next year" but what I meant was 2025. If they don't launch until Sept of 2025 (and who knows when they'll actually launch) that will be almost 2 years with this card.

After the unanimous suggestions to go with the 4070, I did some additional research and very much agree that this is the way to go. The 4060ti was a poor choice. I was just thinking that it would be fine until the new cards come out, but the 4070 is not that much more expensive and is quite a bit better for what I need it to do.

It hurt to recommend Nvidia but he had already chosen. Best I can do is offer a better choice.
I can't do AMD. I'm running AI more than I'm gaming these days, and Nvidia is just a lot better at it right now. I need those sweet CUDA cores.

As for the Super, it wouldn't surprise me if I didn't end up procrastinating until those are released. For some reason I'm having a hard time pulling the trigger.
 
i would wait if only as they do exist. I would probably kick self for jumping early,

I rushed my last build as it was 2020. Sort of hard to get some parts that year. It took this year to complete it... now there isn't a rush and parts aren't over priced. I would take time and make sure everything was right.

The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is a powerful CPU, and the 32GB DDR5 RAM and 2TB NVMe SSD will handle multitasking and large projects efficiently. The RTX 4060 Ti is a good choice for now, and you can easily upgrade when new GPUs are available. The Lian Li GALAHAD AIO cooler and LANCOOL 216 case provide good cooling and aesthetics. Overall, it's a well-balanced build within your specified budget.

Is that you, Bing? Are you following me?

I've decided to wait. I put my $2000 into a 5% 6 month CD earlier today. Credit Unions are awesome. I highly recommend them.

The people who have a 4080 now and sell it to get a better one are idiots.

The biggest difference between a 4080 & a 4080 Super will be its price. They just giving you a few more cores to play with... and will charge a fortune..


I had to laugh at the website he hates in the 1st 2 minutes, name seems familiar

The 4080 16GB and 4070 Ti 12GB are being phased out.
