I'm looking now at a i5(8400) with 16 Gb (2666mgz) ram and a ASRock B360M Pro4, socket 1151 motherboard. Found a big hw supplier wich is a bit cheaper then the previous one I was looking fat. Also let's you specify all the components, but a lot more choice. Don't know if I can/am allowed to mention the webshop, so you can see alternatives which might suite better.xenopeek wrote: ⤴Thu Dec 20, 2018 10:34 amFrom benchmarks I read for the models I talked about, 300W is roughly the total system power draw (actually a bit lower, I rounded up). PSUs in this price range are about 85% efficient so it pays to have a bit of headroom. You're absolutely right on that. But the PSU recommendation from the graphics card manufacturer takes that into account so if they say 400W is enough, 500W is more than enough.
Personally I don't see an upper mid or high end graphics card fitting in this system; it would cost more than the rest of the PC put together.
rene puts it elegantly that the choice is up to you and we're just strangers on the Internet voicing are biased opinions That said, as the MORTAR costs the same as the BAZOOKA but you get the Intel network chip, you get a DisplayPort, you get S/PDIF out and you get USB 3.1 Gen2 instead of Gen1 (10 GB/s vs 5 GB/s) I would have my preference. I've only looked at mATX boards though, assuming that was what you wanted.
