  1. Just made some minor changes for now. Come back when you are actually going to purchase, a lot of things and prices can change in 2 months - especially these times. It's an AMD based system, went with the stock cooler, faster RGB ram, NVMe m.2 SSD, 1660 Super, RGB airflow case, cheaper PSU. You really don't need 750W. If you want fully modular, go with the Phanteks AMP - but again: prices might change. I'd personally get even faster and cheaper non-RGB ram for the system and get a cheaper non-RGB case. Add some RGB fans later if you want lighting.

  2. I agree. If your main focus is gaming a 3600 would suffice and you can cut down your memory to 16GB and get a reasonably priced NVMe 3rd Gen SSD like the Crucial P1 - no advantage in gaming with the PCIe 4.0 SSD whatsoever. If you want to stick with 8 cores, I'd still downgrade to the 3700X - unless you can get the 3800X for about the same price, otherwise it's not worth it imo.
  3. I would bother too much with the rating and instead if the unit is of decent quality. Is it the CX (2017) model? lf so it is of the same quality as the TXM Gold (the gold in the name does not indicate it's rating). Only difference is that the TXM Gold is semi-modular. You can check the PSU tier list for more info
  4. Here's what you could upgrade now with your budget. Your GPU will remain somewhat lacklustre though.

You can probably get the same parts for cheaper once 4th gen Ryzen dropped and have some money left over to invest in a new GPU if you so desire. Ultimately, it's up to you - there'll always be something new around the corner, though
  5. Yeah I've seen that the 750 is actually cheaper than the other models. The Corsair TXM Gold PSUs are very good, I'd say go for it.
  6. Well in that case I have not much to add to what @Fasauceome suggested above. I'd either go with a 3700X or 3900X - all or nothing Maybe even consider a Gen 4 SSD, it's not going to increase performance in games, but you got the chipset for it already, so why not. The MSI cases are not exactly known for their exceptional airflow.
  7. Hey there, Where are you located? What's the budget you are working with? What monitor will he be using (resolution and refresh rate)? Any specific games or everything across the board? That's a beefy motherboard, so other than your budget - you're not limited with the choice of components.
  8. I would suggest a Ryzen 1600AF, but I'm not sure if that's available to you in Canada and how much you'd save over a 2600. It's basically the same CPU. If you can get it cheaper than the 2600 I'd go for that one instead. Only thing that's a bit underpowered here could be the GPU, but that's the best I can come up with regarding the budget for now. If you can find a good deal on a used RX580 (preferably 8GB) that'd be great.

  9. There's the G.skill Trident Z Neo which is supposed to be optimized for 3rd Gen Ryzen and X570 - doesn't make a difference in the end really.
  10. Better motherboard, 1TB SSD, 2TB HDD, better GPU, good airflow case with perforated front instead of glass.

  11. What kind of productivity do you do exactly? An 8core/16thread CPU might be all you need and you could save some money by going with a 3700X instead of a 3900/3950X. You'll have to replace that monitor if you want to get the most out of your new GPU, so the money you saved could be put towards that. Any specific resolution you already have in mind for a potential new montior?
  12. Considering the quality of all the components you already have these components would fit nicely. With your H150i Pro and the Crosshair Hero you have enough headroom to overclock the 3700X to 3800X levels. As I said a 3600 would be enough for pure gaming, but that would be a rather unbalanced build with what you already have (32GB Ram, 360mm AIO, Crosshair Hero). The 2080 Super is great for 1440p gaming and I included a PSU as you didn't list one yet. A 2080 Ti would perform even better, as would a Titan RTX, but the cost/performance ratio is off - plus I wouldn't spend > $1000 on a GPU right now.

  13. What's your budget for the entire PC? You are overspending a little. You won't need 32GB Ram and it'll give you basically 0 performance advantage. Same with PCIe 4.0 SSD. If we know your budget, we can suggest you a great build with the best gaming performance for within that budget without spending money on things you won't benefit from. RGB included
  14. If gaming is your main focus a Ryzen 5 3600 is all you need. Pair that with a fast ram kit 3600MHz/CL16 (16GB is plenty for gaming) and a solid motherboard and you are good to go! I assume you are buying in the US? A 2070 Super would fit nicely into that budget. I'd recommend a card with 3 fans (Gigabyte Windforce for example). Or you could go with a 5700XT, save some money and have close to the performance of a 2070 Super. New GPUs are expected to be announced soon as well, but there's always something new around the corner Do you have a PCPartPicker list of your build so far? The 3600 comes with a stock cooler btw. It's sufficient even if you lightly OC the CPU. I'm mentioning this because a H150i is a bit overkill for that kind of CPU and a waste of money imo.
  15. Agreed, which is why I refrained from putting together a list for now and just gave some general advice. ~€420 is a tight budget as is, but from what I've seen pricing in italy is pretty high as well; at least compared to Germany, which is what I'm familiar with. Getting a dGPU would really be a best-case scenario here - if possible at all.
