  1. 32GB of ram is a nice luxury to have, and it's never bad to get a newer, nicer motherboard for future upgrade potential.
  2. I made some changes that I think would far improve your build: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 2700 3.2 GHz 8-Core Processor $169.89 @ OutletPC Motherboard Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard $194.89 @ OutletPC Memory G.Skill Trident Z 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $149.99 @ Newegg Storage Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $99.99 @ B&H Case Phanteks Eclipse P400A ATX Mid Tower Case $72.98 @ Newegg Power Supply SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $89.99 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $807.73 Mail-in rebates -$30.00 Total $777.73 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-10-09 14:42 EDT-0400 - X570 is a vast improvement over X470, and this board has built-in wifi and an amazing VRM. - Ram kit is cheaper and will perform just as well - Skip out on Hard Drives, SSD prices are falling rapidly and you won't need 3.5TB of storage for what you're doing - The P400A is a much more modern, airflow-focued case for a similar price. RGB fans are $25 extra - Power Supply is cheaper and will do just as well - Get Windows from a grey-market site like SCDKey, you'll save $100 or more
  3. I had similar issues with my 5700XT Pulse and honestly it has nothing to do with the card and everything to do with the drivers. I rolled back to 19.7.5 (which is old now but as long as you're not playing the newest games you'll be fine) and all of my stability issues went away. You probably won't have to roll back that far, but just google what recent drivers people are having success with, run display driver uninstaller, and roll back to said update. When this card works, it's wonderful, but AMD is still fumbling the drivers unfortunately.
  4. I mean it should handle your system just fine unless you're running an HEDT processor, but it may be worth upgrading to a more modern, lower wattage PSU anyways if you have the money for efficiency and safety purposes.
  5. Have you ever worked with liquid helium?
  6. If you're looking to go used, this is my suggestion: CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 (should be ~$80-$90) Motherboard: Cheap B350 or B450 Motherboard, new is better, but used can be okay Memory: 16GB DDR4 2x8 3200MHz - very cheap and important, used and new are both fine GPU: RX 470/570 for under $100, GTX 1070 for under $200 SSD: Intel 660p 512GB or 1TB
  7. What CPU are you overclocking? If it's the Ryzen 3 2200g in your signature, you are already on the verge of killing your CPU with prolonged use, especially under ambient cooling. A stable, long-term overclock should not exceed 1.4v on Zen, and even that is very aggressive. I run my Ryzen 5 1600, which is on the same architecture, at 1.325v maximum for long-term usage. I actually dialed it back eventually and dropped my clock speed because I figured that 200 MHz isn't worth it. If you're trying to kill your chip, go ahead and go past 1.5v, but otherwise dial it back.
  8. There's an Asia-exclusive card called the "RX 580 2048SP" which is literally just an overclocked 570 die, and it performs at the base level of a 580.
  9. The quad-core i5's are starting to become an issue above the level of a 590/1660 as they introduce nasty frame stuttering and can't feed enough data to the GPU, but the i7's with hyperthreading are still holding on quite well and likely will continue to do so until games move beyond using 8 threads on a regular basis.
  10. Uhhh, you really are not giving much information here.
  11. Keep your CPU, upgrade to 16GB of DDR3, and upgrade your GPU to a 1660ti or better. Unless you're jumping to a 2080 or higher your CPU will still be fine for gaming.
  12. If you're just gaming, you don't really need to upgrade all that much. Doubling your RAM (preferably with the same kit to fill in the empty slots) and getting a new graphics card like the RTX 2070 Super or RX 5700 XT depending on your budget would breathe new life into your system and be far more cost effective. The GPU effects gaming FAR more than CPU.
  13. I just plan on upgrading for as long as I need to, but I'd consider building a new system if I had a separate use for it.
  14. Hey I watch both and I'm in my 20's god damn it
