    As long as you have good cooling you can just enable all the boost features and ryzen will max itself out.


    Yeah thank i was think i did overclock i would water cool the pc but im do that later on

    This is more for the overclocking crowd, but there is some memory info in it as well.

    Pretty much all of the $200 boards are fine for even 12 core overclocking. So the 8 core is nothing basically.


    Thanks i think I'm just go with that gigabyte one i don't think I'm overclock till later on when i learn how too

    You can pretty easily get a higher end X570 board with that budget though

    PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/rrX87W

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor  ($329.00 @ B&H)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE ATX AM4 Motherboard  ($199.99 @ Amazon)
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory  ($66.89 @ Amazon)
    Storage: Plextor M8VG 512 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive  ($65.99 @ Newegg)
    Total: $661.87

    Thanks I'm have to order the parts and just get build it in my old case thats not that bad of a price

    If you aren't doing anything too intensive just shoot for a 2700x. That'll work out of the box

    I was going to do something like that but i want to wait till the 3 gen came out and idk im kinda want to go 3 but 2 gen is just as good too

    What is your budget/country for the PC?

    I want to stay in the 1000 range but becueas i have a pc not that just too old i was going to use that case and maybe the asus 1080 that it has and intel pc with 8GB of DDR3 AND intel i5 with a asrock 77pro motherboard

    Why? Brands don't matter, all of them have low end/bad motherboards.

    Which board are you looking at buying? As only MSI has USB bios flashing on cheaper boards

    I went back and look they are x470 bords

    Yep all you have to do is contact AMD customer support, or if you buy a motherboard that has the BIOS flashback feature to update the BIOS without the CPU it's even more convenient.

    The ones i was looking at do jot support bios flash back

    As of now, chances are slim that an X470 off the shelf just works with 3rd gen Ryzen, but AMD offers a free boot kit so who cares.

    Most likely needs a BIOS update, but X570 boards start at $150 anyways? And the really good ones are around $200.

    I did want to go with an asrock or msi mobo

  9. I want to know if i buy a x470 motherboard would it work out of the box for 3 gen ryzen cpu. Also any mid range x470 motherboards  Recommendations all want to do is to use it to stream from my Nintendo switch to youtube and twitch and stream pc game as well all i would be play would be FPS and fighting games i already have an elgato capture card for the switch

    A Ryzen 2700X won't bottleneck either GPU except in highly single-threaded games like CS:GO or WoW.


    You begin to run into minor bottlenecking if you pair the 2700X with something like a 2080 or better, especially at 1080p.  


    As the current owner of a 9700K, if you want to stream and not use NVENC, I recommend the 2700X full stop unless you can afford the 9900K. The extra threads really help when using a software codec like x264, which I highly recommend as you can use a lower bitrate while still keeping a good quality stream. NVENC requires very high bitrates to maintain a good quality stream, unless you have a 16 or 20-series card which have vastly improved NVENC encoding quality.


    As for motherboard choices, either ASUS or ASRock will serve you well. Pick whichever board has the features you want at a decent price. I recommend an X470 board over B450 though if going with the 2700X. 

    Thanks ill keep this in mine when i pick my parts but if i did go 9700k or 9900k what motherboard would you recommend

    I won't deny that they are trash, but I can still play GTA V at mid-high settings at 1080p 60. So it ain't all horrid.


    I'll be curious as to your friend's response to this, as well as your parts choice.

    Im not sure what ill put in it but i do know i want a 1070 or 1080 gpu and maybe a asus or asrock motherboard idk yet

    In reality the difference is normally like having the next level up graphics card, especially at 1080P.


    That can be rather large.


    Also at 1080P the 2700X will bottleneck the RTX 2080, GTX 1080Ti and above.


    The difference is rather large as you can see in the video you posted.


    We don't know what the OP is planning build wise, what games they will be playing or at what resolution and or the GPU he is planning on getting.



    I was going to with a 1080 or a 1070 i have a asus gtx 1080 in my current pc but i may get the same one again

    The general consensus I've seen is that AMD doesn't deliver quite as well at single core performance, which is what MOST games operate on. It does however excel in multi core performance, which is what you'll be utilizing when you run software in the background to record and stream game footage, operate your cameras/mics etc.


    There are fine Intel options for these tasks, but they cost an arm and a leg, where a Ryzen 5 2600 (6 cores, 12 threads, 3.4ghz, overclockable.) only costs $165ish currently, comes with a copy of The Division 2 ($60 value, and it's fun) can pull off the same task for less than half the price. The 2700X will be even more proficient with 2 extra cores, 4 extra threads, and base clock of 3.7ghz.


    The longevity stigma with AMD has long since been disproved. For old generation stuff, that may have had a good basis, but at the value for performance here you are gonna be plenty happy with a Ryzen.

    Sounds like I'm going amd then

    The only reason I'd say choose AMD over Intel right now is because of Ryzen 3000 this year. You have an actual upgrade path (as long as you have the right motherboard). Intel is better than AMD for gaming really, but when you take into account the upgrade path you get with AMD, it almost doesn't make much sense to go team blue (at least not right now). Your friend confuses me. They really mustn't be your friend if they're trying to get you to spend more money when you could just as well build a comparable and capable team red machine. Ultimately you spend your money on what you want. But you may consider a new friend if they really think cpu's have a life span (I mean anything really does, but there's plenty of computers from the early days that work just fine. Plus there are AMD systems like mine on my profile. Bet that one will blow their Mack Weldon's off).

    You got a really good point

    The CPU's last just as long, or will outlast the rest of the system normally.


    What is it that you want to do, gaming?


    What games and screen resolution?


    What Graphics card are you thinking about?


    Just as good as Intel is debatable, at gaming no they are not, at some productivity apps that are ported for AMD, yes.


    At 4K they are close, but at 1080P and 1440P Intel is better except for very few games that are ported for AMD.





    I would be doing 1080 and maybe higher from time to time also would like to stream to twitch and edit video for youtube 

  16. I want to build a pc for gameing and stream to twitch and would to be able to also edit the video for youtube. Here where i need help i have only look at the cpu 2700x and don't know if this would be good or not i have look at gpu or anything Else but i would like it to he water cooled thanks in advance should i go with intel
