Razgon, get the 13th gen Core i7 for sure. It’s significantly faster than 12th gen and not significantly more expensive.
FWIW, this is the rig I built and with it sitting 8 feet away across the room, I can’t hear it over the hum of my ice maker in the fridge in the next room. :) If I load MS Flight Sim (the most demanding game I’ve got installed), I can slightly hear the fans IF I mute the soundbar and actively listen for them. I’m surprised at how quiet it is given the ventilated sides and RTX card.
Case: Cooler Master NR200P Max (280mm AIO cooler and power supply built, so much easier to build than the last SFF PC I put together, a Shuttle 20 years ago)
CPU: Core i7-13700K
RAM: 64GB DDR5 5600
Storage: WD SN850X 2TB m.2
Motherboard: MSI MPG Z790I Edge Wi-Fi (wanted 3 m.2 slots)
Video: MSI Ventus RTX 4070Ti 12GB
I can’t say enough good things about the NR200P Max case. Fits under the side table, silent, and the quickest PC build I’ve ever done thanks to the power supply and AIO being pre-installed, and all the cables/hoses being the perfect lengths. Plus the power supply is modular, so I was able to disconnect the SATA power cable since I’m using only m.2 drives. It’s a pricey case in the US, but is apparently $100 cheaper in the EU.
Running on a 4K LG Oled, the 4070 Ti seems to have plenty of oomph. I was getting >100 fps in MSFS, 120 fps with VSync on in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, and 210-290 fps in Atomic Heart at 4K resolution with everything cranked to the max. Basically, unless you’re playing DCS (Digital Combat Simulator) in VR, where the extra memory on the video card of a 4080/4090 actually does help, the 4070 Ti seems like plenty for TV gaming. It runs everything at 4K at crazy frame rates on my setup.
Your rig was is listed at $2,800 USD with last-year’s processor and slow DDR4 RAM. Not sure if you can find comparable prices to the US where you are, but my setup was $2,500 with much faster CPU/memory and one of the fastest consumer m.2 SSDs, but one notch down on the video card. Also, obviously I had to build it myself, but it took me about 90 minutes going slowly and following along with a couple of YouTube videos.
Anyway, I’m beyond happy with my new build, much more so than I expected, and was wanting to share it here anyway. :) The TL;DR if you don’t want the tiny ITX case is get the 13700K/KF and DDR5. The 13th gen Intels are significantly better than the 12th gen.
Before I put in the video card. (The card came a few days later, so I set it up using the CPU graphics. Reason to get a K instead of a KF CPU! Plus if your video card dies the computer’s still usable.)
Interior with the 4070Ti installed. The NR200P Max includes a PCIe 4 riser card for the GPU.
The final build sitting under the table by my living room TV. Can’t hear it at all, even when gaming. Also, figured out how to turn it on using the Xbox controller if I put it in sleep mode instead of doing a full shutdown, so that’s cool!
