  1. Do you do stuff that needs 8 cores? For gaming and light workloads you might be better off with a Ryzen 5 3600.
  2. No, they changed it. An FX-8350 shows up as a 4-core CPU with 8 threads, for example.
  3. I said OP was GPU-bottlenecked. That means the CPU is NOT bottlenecking.
  4. This is normal. DDR4 has a double data rate, so DDR4-3000 runs at 1500MHz = 3000 MT/s.
  5. Well, the 3800X is just a 3700X with slightly higher clocks. It's fine at €13 extra, but it's not the kind of step up that the 3900X would be.
  6. It's getting kind of borderline, especially with the 3900X. There are a couple different variants of the XFX TS by the way, if it's the gold rated one it could probably soldier on, while the bronze rated one should be replaced IMO. I don't know how well PCpartpicker covers the Dutch market, but it looks like the Corsair RM750 is a good deal and costs the same as the 650W version, so you might as well go for the bigger one.
  7. Well, you would have to spend some more to get a bigger upgrade. Like the RX 5700 that'll cost around $330+.
  8. I have that specific GPU, and it's fine. I would say, though, that a Vega 56 is borderline as an upgrade from an RX 580. Usually it's best to upgrade by around 50% at least, to get the best value for your money long-term. The Vega 56 is more like a 40% upgrade for you.
  9. CPU choice mostly comes down to how high quality you want to record/stream at, and how fast you want editing to go. The 3700X isn't going to be a slouch in either department, but the 3900X is obviously a step up. As for the PSU, 650W would do fine, it's better to go for quality over (excess) quantity. If your current PSU is solid you could also keep using it.
  10. They are equally important, just depends on the particular numbers. For example, 1080p 144Hz is more demanding than 1440p 60Hz, but less demanding than 4K 60Hz.
  11. A normal SSD is never completely full, as some of the flash is set aside. You're never down to just the DRAM.
  12. The DRAM doesn't store data, it's just a temporary buffer and more importantly holds the FTL data. It's not about the DRAM. When you erase data on an SSD, it doesn't get erased. It just gets marked as ready for deletion. Then it's up to the garbage collection implementation to clean it up whenever it's convenient. If you've just erased a lot of data, that can temporarily slow down the SSD's performance afterwards. DRAM is volatile and has way lower latency, so these kinds of issues aren't relevant.
