    shark103 got a reaction from Winnah5 in PC Upgrade help! - looking to upgrade my 6yr old prebuilt   
    Can be anything higher (in power) than those if you can get it cheap enough. Example if you can get a GTX950 (or higher) in the same price or lower than 750Ti then go for it. Nothing lower as 750Ti/7850 is an optimal pair with your cpu - lower one and your new gpu will be the bottleneck for the cpu.
    One additional thing as you might not now this a 670 is more powerful than 750ti and those you probably could also get cheap.
     
    Nvidia gpu power you could say that if you take their number from gtx family as XY0 then
    X|Y+2|0 >> X+1|Y|0
    what i mean on examples
    670 >> 750
    660 around the same 750
    650 << 750
    XY0 << XY0ti

    Get a new PSU for sure. @cbigfoot gave you a nice suggestion with that. You can also look at this list if you can get a modular cheaper - suggestion look at tier A and PSU with long warranty like that Seasonic.
     
    Getting a RTX 2060 now make zero sense, there is absolutely no point in that if you plan to keep current rig with upgraded GPU for 2-4 years. After that time 2060 could be a bottleneck for new CPU or could just be dead and you would never even use 50% of it's power.

    So you need more RAM, ok probably best way is to just buy that in shop as DDR3 should be cheap as it's older gen - 60-70 bucks would get you 2x8gb from Patriot, Mushkin or G.Skill.
    Sata SSD is obvious that's why I didn't even mention it. You'll be upgrading psu, gpu, ram quite a bit under your budget so you can spend that 35-50 bucks for a WD Green, Kingston A400, Crucial BX500. Later on when you will be building new rig you can take that ssd and throw it into cheap usb3.0 external enclosure.
     
    PSU+RAM+SSD+GPU would on total be around 300-350 bucks from what i see online. PSU will be moved to new rig later on, SSD could be used as external.

    @Winnah5
    Hey,
    Upgrading this machine hmmm... I wouldn't. That CPU is old and weak as hell it will be a bottleneck for any modern GPU. If don't want to buy a new rig just yet but feel the need to upgrade GPU then I would suggest getting a used GTX750Ti/AMD Radeon HD 7850 or something a bit more powerful that will still be cheap. 60fps on medium in GTA5 no way with that CPU, maybe 60fps on low.
    RAM 16gb with that CPU is not worth it if you don't use memory hungry programs - you won't be using it in new future rig as it's DDR3.

    shark103 got a reaction from Fasauceome in CPU problems after BIOS update.   
    Quick answer - sorry but no. Bios update equals clearing saved presets in most cases.

    shark103 got a reaction from boggy77 in any compatibility issues with this new Build?   
    550W is enough for this if you leave the system stock, if you won't overclock it too much but you probably will want to push it and  high as you can with stable temps. Another thing you won't buy founders and leave it an stock I image but card will be overclocked by manufacturer or even you. You would be really on the line with 550W one. Additionally if you decide to put extra hdd or anything more than 1-2 fans more then you will be even  more on the line.
    850W is way too much, good 650W is in my opinion a sweet spot.

    shark103 got a reaction from Meganter in help/input on my new pc   
    Hi,
     
    You don't need x570 for Ryzen 3600. You can just buy a good B450 motherboard, examples from MSI (best boards for ryzen):
    B450-A Pro MAX
    B450 Tomahawk MAX
    B450 Bazooka MAX
     
    You can also buy a non-MAX but then you will need to update bios prior to CPU installment (boards have functionality of flashing BIOS without CPU).

    shark103 got a reaction from DoctorNick in PC price estimate   
    PCpartpicker is not a good way to estimate older hardware worth - no one would buy new 5820k nowadays.
    Estimation of you current build with quick search online (on EU websites) - 600-650€.

    Btw for 1000€ you could get
    Ryzen 5 3600
    RTX 2060 super
    16GB 3200Mhz
    good B450, 256gb nvme, case, psu, cooler,

    If they price difference is so big then no point in b-die. But faster ram for ryzen is always better.
     
    Edit: sorry thought that you were going with ryzen 5 3600 for which there is a noticeable difference. Not sure with 2nd gen

    shark103 got a reaction from SnarklyDuck in Planing my first build   
    Go for MSI B450 micro board like
    b450m gaming plus
    B450m-a pro
     
    Ram find some b-die ones with 3200 MHz example g.skill F4-3200C15D-16GVK
     
    PSU if they are available in Latvia go for SilentiumPC Vero M2
    Same goes for case SilentiumPC got a few nice ones. 
     
    You could look for Polish shop that will deliver to Latvia (both in EU, not that far away from each other) - recently I built a ryzen 5 3600 / rtx 2060 super gigabyte gaming oc system for around 970 EUR (but without monitor).
