Windows 7: New build suggestions!

Thanks for the expert recommendations.

A few queries:

1. Why the crucial 16GB vs Corsair vengeance 16GB @3200..
price, in incompatibility with the board... QVL is the reason you recommend crucial?

2. I agree with 500 GB SSD, but again an extra backup 1TB won't really make a difference or increase the prices that much. Memory and drives are not that expensive these days.
Adding before better than realizing the need later?

3. CPU: either 9400 or 9700K. Since both have graphics.. Only difference is of price of K a bit more and fan, grease required.. Am I correct?

Apologize for the ignorance, don't want to be dependent and be shuttling to the PC tech shop or Microsoft support....

I like to learn about the things I use, age is drawback factor...

Thanks again appreciate you taking out the time.

Regards.

Yes, I chose that RAM as it is QVL. It was really, really hard finding the RAM in the QVL list at a vendor. If you go to ASUS's website on that motherboard and go to their support page for RAM and search for the product numbers at NewEgg or PCpartpicker I was hitting a wall. I tried with the lowest speed first since RAM is very expensive right now.



Yeah, it wouldn't hurt to have a 1 TB platter if you feel you need it. With platters I like Hitachi enterprise drives. I have two 2 TB Hitachi platters and both have over 19,000 hours and still are going strong with no SMART errors, etc. If you get a platter and don't plan on using it right away, just don't install it and power it in your computer until you need it to save on wear and tear.

You could just go with the 9400 i5 if you want. The Evo 212 fan should come with grease. Just have a PC shop use that.

Thsnks again for the expert clarification.

Plan running W 10 x 64 Pro on it.

W7 runs fine on my dell with 4 gigs of RAM @677 MHz.

Memory and Drives aren't that expensive here...

500 SSD Samsung M2 NVME for approx 80 bucks.
16 GB corsair vengeance @3200 mhz for 150..

Do I require the full tower casing or mid..

Thanks again.

Regards!

Or I could go with a 8 GB module, and add another if needed?

Mobo supports I think upto64 GB...


Thanks again!

You have a great system....
A friend works for Micron, their drives aren't bad too, I have one 250 SSD.. Running great, quite and great write/read speeds despite its not MVNE.

I had a talk with the pc tech, his only concern is about the casing... as per him its too big in size, suggests going with a mid tower... Said its a suggestion, rest some up to you...

Have a great evening!

Yeah, the case is a full tower. You can pick something in the mid tower range. Make sure it's ATX.

They are pretty much two competing boards in most respects other than price. Not sure about the Gigabyte motherboard, but it looks like the ASUS board has better chokes and MOSFETs, etc. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if the Gigabyte board had the same thing and just doesn't mention it.

I'd probably get the Gigabyte since it's made durable like the ASUS counterpart and is a lot cheaper. I prefer Gigabyte myself and my two Gigabyte boards I've owned have been pretty much error free. Though, it's possible from time to time to get a lemon from the assembly line. It happens.
