Feel free to comment and ask for suggestions on your PC-Build or 3D-related Problem, I’ll do my best to help out!

Also check out our Forum for feedback from our Expert Community.


Hi Alex!
First of all, let me tell you you’re awesome! When it comes to building a computer, your site changed my life man. Thanks!

Here’s my question: I’m looking for RAM memory for this motherboard: MSI Performance Gaming AMD X470 Ryzen 2 AM4 DDR4 Onboard Graphics CFX ATX Motherboard (X470 Gaming Plus)
I’ll use the motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X

I would like to buy 64GB. What do you recommend? I have a tight budget to be honest.

Thank you so much!


Alex Glawion

Hey Leo,
That Motherboard supports up to DDR4-3466, but 2nd gen Ryzen works best with 3200Mhz RAM. Take a look at Corsair Vengeance Ram (4x16gb) at 3200mhz or if that is too expensive you can go with 3000 or 2666mhz. RAM speeds only make a small difference in overall performance.



Hey Alex!
Thanks for the quick reply! Would you be so kind to send me the link so I can but it? I guess the cheapest option (2666 as you say) would be fine.

Thank you so much!

Alex Glawion

Sure, here you go!


Thank you Alex! You’re the best!!!!




Just to be 100% sure before hitting “Buy”, You and your online PC builder suggest the following items:
– Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
– Motherboard: MSI X470 Gaming Plus
– RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 64GB (4x16GB) DDR4 2666 C16


Alex Glawion

Jepp all good 🙂 those will work nicely together!


Thank you man!!!


Hi Alex,

based on your other posts I buyed a pc (yesterday, in Spain):

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8GHz 12-Core Processor (549.90 €)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 AM4 (80.95 €)
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite ATX AM4 (199.95 €)
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super 8GB – MSI Gaming (584.95 €)
Memory: 64GB (4 x 16GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 CL16 (332.92 €)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 1TB M.2 Solid State Drive (169.99 €)
Power Supply: Seasonic Focus Plus 80 Plus Gold 650W Modular (102.95 €)
Case: Fractal Design Define S2 (119.95 €)

Total: 2021,61 €

Now I wanna update my old monitor LG 27″, and I want go to something like:

Samsung LC49RG90SSUXEN 49″ QLED Dual QHD 120Hz FreeSync (999 €)

Could you tell me if I am going the right way?

PD: I am a freelance, my main job is 3D and web devoloper

Alex Glawion

Hey Vicente,
The Color accuracy with 125% (sRGB), 92% (Adobe RGB), 95% (DCI-P3) is quite good, though it does have a VA panel which is right in-between TN and IPS. Good for gaming and good for Creators work, but not quite as great as an IPS Panel for graphical work.

If you like the ultra wide and curved design and know you will be able to work with it, the Samsung is a nice choice.



Thx Alex,

I have always opted for monitors with IPS panel, in fact the initial idea was to take a ULTRAWIDE CURVED LG 49WL95C-W 5120 x 1440 (DualQHD) monitor with 32: 9 IPS panel, but this is a bit more expensive.

I have many doubts between Samsung and LG.I’m afraid of making a mistake on a monitor of this price…

which would you choose between them?

Alex Glawion

Even though the Samsung has a VA Panel the specs seem better across the board. Higher Contrast, Better Color, and brighter. Not sure how they fare in real-world situations though. 🙂


Hi Alex,
which is better in
ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Thank you

Alex Glawion

Hey William,
They both have almost identical features. If you need 2.5G LAN the Asus is a great board, if not, save some money and get the Gigabyte.


Ella Marushchenko

Hello! Thank You for all the articles! What do you think about this laptop for C4D modeling + Octane rendering?

Alex Glawion

Hey Ella,
The specs are great and having an RTX 2080 will give you nice performance for Octane on a Laptop.

The 9750H CPU too is nice and snappy and should speed up your modeling adequately.



Hi Alex,
I am from india, i read your posts and you are doing a great job.
I also read your post regarding the Build for CAD
i need your help in building a pc for interior designing purpose.
Major software’s i use are
sketchup, photoshop, auto cad, 3ds max, Revit architecture, Lumion, illustrator,
Also these software takes rendering time.
I am not sure weather to go with 9900k or 3900x route. i have never used amd before.
for i 9900k below is what i planned i need your suggestions and corrections.

I am mentioning the best posible rates i was able to find. these are indian rates converted to usd below

Intel Core i9 9900K 607$
ASUS ROG Strix Z390-E 286$
Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler 114$
Corsair Power Supplies, RM 850W 146$
Samsung 970 EVO plus 500GB 136$
CORSAIR LPX 2x16GB DDR4 3000Mhz 144$
Already have a WD 1tb 7200 HDD

USD conversion 1$ = 71.58 INR

intel 9900kf is 570$ in India shall i choose this for the 37$ price difference
ryzen 3900x is 636$ in India if i should choose ryzen please suggest the config also, as i don’t know what goes with it.

I am not sure which case to go with, that can accommodate the cooler. be quite dark rock 4 is 2x costlier in india so i choose the noctua.. FRACTAL DESIGN cases are not availabe in india.
be quiet! Silent Base 601 is also not available in india
Also should i add additional fans

my biggest doubt is with the gpu part. no idea what to choose. 2080ti is not a choice due to budget.

Need your views and suggestion on mother board also.

My budget is 2000$ . The price difference between U.S and india is huge for most products.

I also need your suggestion on ups for such a build. should i go with a 1000va ups ?


how much budget should i allocate for each part for such a requirement . am i spending more on something here which i should change like the 850W ps the mother board or ram? how much i should spend on case

I am not sure if sketchup auto cad revit 3ds max and lumion uses cpu rendering or gpu rendering . so i am not sure how to allocate my budget. if i should spend more on GPU or not. please shed some light on this.

regarding monitor i am thinking of buying a samsung 22′ full hd monitor for 90$

Alex Glawion

Hey Janardhanan,
Any ATX case will fit your components, the case is mainly difficult to chose because of aesthetical reasons.

I recommend 2070 Super or 2060 Super GPUs to people with a moderate budget or a 1660ti or 1660 if you have a smaller budget. If you don’t need any CUDA capability you can even get away with an AMD RX580 for example and save some more money.

Check our motherboard guide for the best motherboards to run an i9 9900k on.

For a single gpu build you don’t need more than a 650W PSU. For every additional GPU you can add around 250W to be on the safe side.

Your parts list looks good. To get a feel for how much to spend on the parts, check the pc-builder tool here. It depends very much on what you want to achieve with the PC. A GPU-Rendering focused build for example will allocate more money to the GPUs, and so on.

Your list of apps you want to use, seem to call for a more balanced build, so i9 9900k and a 2070 SUPER would be a nice build with great performance.


Janardhanan V

Dear Alex.

Thanks for the reply.
So you don’t suggest ryzen for my usage.
And is it a good idea to choose 9900kf and save 37$ or 9900k is what I should choose.

And should i buy a 1000va ups for this.

Also are these softwares cup rendered or GPU rendered.

Alex Glawion

Hey Janardhanan,
Ryzen currently is the better route. Sorry, I thought you were already wanting to go with Intel.

AMD is currently in the lead in both Multi Core Perf, and Value and on par in single core performance. With AMD you also have a System that is currently more future proof than on intel.

Here’s a comparable AMD build to what you had in mind:

AMD R9 3900X ~500$
Gigabyte Aorus Elite x570 ~200$
Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler 114$
Corsair Power Supplies, RM 850W 146$
Samsung 970 EVO plus 500GB 136$
CORSAIR LPX 2x16GB DDR4 3000Mhz 144$
Already have a WD 1tb 7200 HDD
Nvidia RTX 2070 Super for example.

If the Motherboard is not available in your country, check this article for more info on other good Ryzen Motherboards:

Lumion is a GPU Realtime Engine, the other Softwares it depends on the render engine you will be using. Mostly CPU probably.

1000W PSU is good if you want to upgrade in the future to more GPUs for example. Other than that, a 650 or 850W PSU will be enough for a single GPU build.


Janardhanan V

Hi Alex.

I am thinking to go with the below build . But i need few more advice and suggestions from you

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3rd Gen Desktop Processor
Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 135MM CPU Air Cooler
Cooler Master MASTERBOX MB520 RGB
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB M.2 NVMe
CORSAIR Vengeance Lpx 16GBx2 DDR4 3000MHz

Kindly suggest if the Mobo is ok or if there is a better alternative. I am purely dependent on Wifi. So should i buy a inbuilt wifi MoBo or buy a usb wifi adaptor or network card seperately.

1). As the softwares i use are cpu rendered. Should i invest in a GPU at all ?. I don’t have enough budget for a GPU now. As Graphics card is required for getting the display can you suggest a bare basic one . I can upgrade to a better GPU separately after 6 months or a year. Kindly advise if this is a right thing to do or i should stretch and buy a decent GPU initially it self.

My software priority goes like. 1. Sketchup. 2 Revit 3 photoshop. 4 cad. Everything else is secondary or not so important.

2) Can i manage with the stock wraith prism cooler. Without buying a discrete cooler. Or is that a bad idea . If so What to with the wraith prism cooler once i buy dark rock pro 4 . Is it obsolete ?

Alex Glawion

For using a single GPU the Asus TUF is fine, also the Gigabyte Aorus Elite is often recommended.

Both USB and Motherboard Wifi are pretty much the same performance,though it’s nice to have an extra usb plug free, if you take a Motherboard with direct wifi support.

Your GPU should be decently powered even if you don’t do any gpu rendering. Viewport and Software performance still depends on the power of the GPU. A good GPU that isn’t too expensive for a non-gpu-render build is the gtx 1660 or 1660ti. You can then upgrade lateron to a 2060 or 2070 / super if you have the money.

You can absolutely manage with the boxed cooler, you will just not get the highest possible sustained boost clocks with it. It is also louder than the bequit, if that is something that would disturb you. You can always start with boxed cooler, and if you find it unsatisfactory you can change it later on.

You can sell or keep the boxed cooler if you don’t need it anymore.



hi Alex, thanks for all the good info! I am planning to build a new PC for 3D modelling, animation, compositing and rendering, mostly with C4D and Octane / Redshift. I kind of set my mind on the new Ryzen 3950x and 2 x RTX 2080Ti. Would you be able to suggest a good board that would accommodate these components and allow them to work at full capacity (most boards seem to only have 1 lane at x16..)? Thank a lot! Beppe

Alex Glawion

Hey Beppe,
Mainstream Platforms such as AM4 (AMD) and LGA1151 (Intel) only offer 16x cpu – pcielanes maximum for pcie-slot attached devices, such as gpus.

This is not too bad though, because the 2080Ti (as on of the top tier gpus) only barely saturates the bandwidth of a x8 pcie 3.0 -speeds.

So you can easily run 2x gpus at x8 on a mainstream platform without sacrificing any gpu rendering speed.

If you want to be absolutely sure though, you’ll have to go HEDT platform, which is Threadripper (AMD) and Intel X-Series CPUs on Intels side.

As AMD is currently leading all kinds of benchmarks in performance and also in value, If you want to go HEDT, go AMD Threadripper. You also have the option to upgrade to 4 gpus on this platform, all of them running at 2x x16 and 2x x8.

That said, if you want to stay with 2 GPUs, the mainstream AM4 platform is great, and the 3950X is an escellent cpu.

Just make sure you get a Motherboard that supports 2 pcie-slots at x8, such as the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro or the MSI MEG X570 Ace. Actually, there is one Motherboard on AM4 x570 that even supports 3 gpus at x8: ASUS Pro WS X570-Ace (because of PLX chips).



Wow, thanks a lot for the fast reply! OK, great info here…. I was looking at the Gigabyte X570 Auros Master but the ASUS you suggest sounds interesting. I’ll have a look at it. Thanks again! Beppe


Hi Alex, I hope you are doing well

I need your suggestions,
I’m currently using photoshop, illustrator, adobe XD and 3d on Cinema 4D and OctaneRender Plugin so I need to build a workstation for 3d modeling and rendering (CPU& GPU Rendering)

My budget is around 3000$ including 400$ for monitor 27UK650-W lateron after 2years maybe I’ll add more GBU cards.

Do you please suggest for last time

Thanks, appreciate your kind support.

Alex Glawion

Hey Hoshos,
I’d suggest this kind of build for great cpu single core and multi-core performance as well as fast gpu rendering speeds in octane:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8GHz 12-Core Processor ($554.44)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 AM4 ($89.90)
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite ATX AM4 ($169.99)
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super 8GB – MSI Gaming ($799.97)
Memory: 64GB (4 x 16GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 CL16 ($300.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 1TB M.2 Solid State Drive ($198.48)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx Series RM650x 650W ATX 2.4 Power Supply ($94.99)
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro ATX Full Tower Case ($85.99)
Total: $2300.75

Add your monitor to it, and you still have a bit left over for maybe a larger pcie ssd or additional storage.



Thanks Alex, you are the best

Can you please but links from Amazon us? So I can buy directly through it
Also if you can suggest mouse and keyboard.


Alex Glawion

Hey Hoshos,
Sure here you go:

Or some direct links here:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8GHz 12-Core Processor

CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 AM4

Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite ATX AM4

GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super 8GB – MSI Gaming X

Memory: 64GB (4 x 16GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 CL16

Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 1TB M.2 Solid State Drive

Power Supply: Corsair RMx Series RM650x 650W ATX 2.4 Power Supply

Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro ATX Full Tower Case

Thanks and have fun! 🙂


Alex Glawion

I personally like very simple mice and keyboard, not sure what you prefer. I work with these here:




Thanks mate,

what do you think if i replaced the Power Supply with same but 850 for lateron when adding more GPU card
CORSAIR RMX Series, RM850x, 850 Watt, 80+ Gold Certified, Fully Modular Power Supply

it will affect anything?

Alex Glawion

Yes that makes sense if you want to upgrade to two gpus in the future! Will work just as well now as the 650W psu.



Thanks man for your kindness,
you are the best.


Dear Alex, Hope you are fine
How many GPU Slots in This Motherboard Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite ATX AM4 ?

I need to but 1 GPU but lateron i’ll add 1 more

Alex Glawion

Hey Hoshos,
The Aorus Elite has 2 pcie-clots, but only one of them can run at full speed x16. The other runs at x4 speeds.

If you want to have two GPUs run in x8 mode you will need another Motherboard like the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro.



What do you think about the one you but in this offer pages

Alex Glawion

Jep that’s a good Motherboard with support for 2x GPUs at x16 and x8. 🙂


Thanks bro, I Finalllllly order the parts and I’ll get it soon.
But I feel lost and I watched many videos for building a pc

I have 2 question
1- The Thermal paste that comes with this cooler is enough?
2- The SSD I order is enough to install Windows and I can partition it after installing Windows or I need another SSD?

3-do you have a youtube channel? I’ll be happy to follow and watching every single vides for you.

Thanks you

Alex Glawion

Hey Hoshos,
Boxed cpu coolers already have thermal paste applied to the bottom of the cooler. If you got a 3rd party cooler (such as the bequiet dark rock pro 4) then you will have a tube of thermal paste in the box that you can pply to the cpu before mounting the cooler on top of the cpu. This is enough, yes.

You can partition the ssd during Win10 installation. IF you want to partition it at all. How big is it?

We will start a youtube channel soon, but nothing yet, sorry 🙂



Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 1TB M.2 Solid State Drive
what do you prefer, partition the SSD during Win10 installation or what?

Alex Glawion

Yes this is the easiest. Like a 250gb for OS/Apps and the rest for Project Files for example.
