I want to upgrade my old PC into a nicer one pretty much, any help on part suggestion/verification would be very much appreciated :).
I currently have:
EVGA Nvidia GTX 760
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P8Z68-V LX
8GB RAM DDR3
700 Watt PSU
AIO liquid cooling 240mm Radiator
3TB of HDD
I would like to replace my CPU, and therefore motherboard and RAM, as well as getting an M.2 boot drive so I can move off of HDD booting.
I am looking at:
Ryzen 7 2700x
Unsure about motherboard but perhaps ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero
16GB DDR4 RAM from wherever I can find it cheapest
Samsung 960 250GB
Costing roughly £770
1. Budget & Location
Around £700-£800 in the UK but will splash a bit (£100-£200) if it means a good improvement.
The system will be used for both some mild gaming (including major new releases in Fallout etc but not at top quality) as well as a workstation load, it'll be running a CAD-esque bit of software.
2 Monitors, 1080p 60 Hz. There is a chance I would be upgrading to a better monitor or 2 in the future but not for a while.
I already have a fairly decent mouse and keyboard so wouldn't be upgrading those, but if anyone has suggestions on cheapish (sub £40) headsets then that would be very helpful. Already have the OS.
5. Why are you upgrading?
I'm upgrading as I want to be able to run my workstation load without too many issues as well as be able to play a fair amount of games, I'm not planning on upgrading my graphics card as it's still fairly decent but motherboard, CPU, RAM all need upgrading (as well as a new M.2 boot drive).
Many Thanks in advance to any help that anyone can give :).
