Thanks for all the feedback - really helped a lot and prevented me from making a stupid mistake.
Thanks for the help!
Thanks for that. This is my first PC build and I just wanted the drives as storage for my Steam library (I'm also a Steam n00b). Would I have to run the drives in RAID if I wanted to store and run my games from my SSD?
EDIT: I was going to use a Samsung 500GB M.2 drive as my primary boot drive.
Thanks for that! :)
I've purchased to the NZXT Kraken X62 for an i7 9700K. I'm not sure what the thermal paste pre-applied is like - can you recommend a good thermal paste?
It's hard to tell from the pics but did you cover the integrated LEDs in your NZXT case with a cover? I want to get the H700i but I feel like the LEDs stick out a bit and are a bit intrusive.
Thanks for the feedback - I might go with the 2070 after all!
I haven't done much rendering - wanted to use this new build to learn and practice more. I've only used Blender which I believe is GPU based. I think I might have to increase my budget to £2.5k if I want a good monitor.
Thanks for this. After doing some research, I was thinking of getting the i7 9700k - I like the specs despite the lack of hyperthreading - now just need to find a compatible mobo.
I'm still unsure as what GPU to get, however. Is there much difference between the AMD and nVidia GPUs? Would there be any issues using it with an Intel CPU?
Thanks in advance.
Yep - I need EVERYTHING!
