    Used i5 4690 or i7 3770

    Build something like this instead... Slight increase in price would increase the longetivity of ur PC.

    First Ever Build, Thoughts?

    I totally understand where u r coming from. Alright, a 650w PSU wont be a big hole in his pocket. I'd recommend to get PSUs frm tier 1-2.

    Look, CPU die sizes are shrinking. AMD is planning to release its 7nm processors maybe this year. Shrinking the process like from 14nm to 7nm does reduce power as it allows the voltage across the transistors to be reduced slightly, it also increases speed as the channel is now shorter so you can have faster switching transistors or more complex architectures running at the same speed. So, the CPUs that will be released in the near future wont draw as much power. I'll give u a simple example. Do u remember the fx series cards. A fx 8350 used to draw more power when compared to something like a ryzen 1700, with ryzen 7 still crushing those fx series processors. Same goes on for GPUs. The GTX 6** cards used to draw a lot more power when compared to a gtx 1080ti.

    Wattage doesnt define the quality of a PSU. Even the efficiency rating doesnt define the quality of a PSU. The thing that defines the quality of a PSU is what kinds of components are used to build the power supply. I personally prefer EVGA G2, Super flower leadex series, Corsair Rmx series, Seasonic focus plus series for mid to high end budget builds. Not sure what kind of PSU you had used that u experienced such issues. There is a PSU tier list created by some guys. You can refer that list and pick up a good unit. I usually prefer tier 1-2 PSUs fr mid-high range builds. Have a look at this... I myself have a ryzen 7 2700 system OC to 4.2ghz along with a gtx 1080ti. And it doesnt draw more than 450W. I use a EVGA g2 550W PSU. What was ur previous power supply and which tier did it belong to??

    Build new pc or upgrade old pc??

    Not necessarily, but i would recommend you to buy one. Get something like masterwatt series from cooler master or cxm series from corsair. they go around fr about $80-90 AUD

    get a used gtx 1070/980ti if u can find one for cheap. search on ur local marketplaces like gumtree, fb marketplace and find some good deals. Also, dual channel ram improves the performance significantly. Dual channel will allow your computer to run 5% to 10% faster since it will be able to pull data from both channels at the same time. Most motherboards have 4 memory slots. 2x 4GB or 2x 8GB will be the best setup for most people.Make sure you buy compatible memory. Every motherboard page on the manufacturers site will have a list of tested memory.

    i have observed in many cases that a gtx 1060 3gb holds you back due to less vram. Or else get a 1070ti. I have seen them going for as low as $320. maybe add another 8gb ram stick and run it in dual channel. Dual channel will allow your computer to run 5% to 10% faster since it will be able to pull data from both channels at the same time.
