  1. Fair point, I downgraded the M.2 to something reasonable and stuck an HDD in. I also (probably unwisely) paid a couple extra for GB memory as everything else was coming tomorrow and well hey I get to build it tomorrow now PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU AMD - Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7 GHz 8-Core Processor £287.99 @ Aria PC Motherboard MSI - B450M MORTAR Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard £82.96 @ Amazon UK Memory Corsair - Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory £116.98 @ Amazon UK Storage Crucial - P1 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive £63.59 @ Amazon UK Storage Seagate - BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £34.50 @ Amazon UK Video Card Zotac - GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB Mini Video Card £229.96 @ Amazon UK Case Thermaltake - Core V21 MicroATX Mini Tower Case Purchased For £0.00 Power Supply XFX - XTR 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Purchased For £0.00 Case Fan Noctua - NF-F12 PWM 54.97 CFM 120mm Fan Purchased For £0.00 Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £815.98 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-04-05 23:29 BST+0100 Thanks again for all your help, great 1st experience on the forum
  2. Thank you for all the help, much appreciated! @trevb0t great resource thank you, I've switched to the mortar, and thanks to all who pointed out the mobo was no good! The mortar is actually the same price so I can leave the rest as is. Gaming nexus seems to indicate the mortar has the best VRM in the mATX form factor which is why I went with it. Would be good to have the mobo comparison in form factors too. FWIW I couldn't find a Tomahawk in mATX, although I guess the mortar kinda is that. @Herman Mcpootis I looked at this comparison which seemed to indicate the 1070 was faster, although not by much, but it was a lot cheaper. @paddy-stone @jstudrawa Holding off for 3000 -> Yes you are correct I should do that *hovers mouse over buy button* (but I probably can't wait) The SSD is really too much on this build, but the next down the rung it £63 for 45% less effective speed (according to this if it is to be believed, how much real world difference that'll make I don't know) so may just stick with it. Thanks again for all the responses, super useful!
  3. Oops my bad that's a mistake in the list, it was a 750Ti 2Gb -> corrected.
  4. So my current pc sucks -> PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU Intel - Core i5-2500 3.3 GHz Quad-Core Processor Motherboard Intel - DH67BLB3 Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard Memory Corsair - XMS3 8 GB (4 x 2 GB) DDR3-1333 Memory £94.60 @ SmartTeck.co.uk Storage Intel - X25-M 160 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Storage Western Digital - RE3 500 GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £71.25 @ Amazon UK Video Card GTX 750 Ti 2Gb (Edit) Power Supply XFX - XTR 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply £120.75 @ Amazon UK Case Fan Noctua - NF-F12 PWM 54.97 CFM 120mm Fan £16.99 @ Amazon UK Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £303.59 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-04-05 13:46 BST+0100 Doing an upgrade as follows: 1. Budget & Location UK, around £800 2. Aim I do a lot of things so it's multi-purpose. I sculpt, model and render in Blender and kept running out of GPU memory. Note currently rendering in Blender is faster in Cycles so Vega is out. I game and want to be able to stream. I also design and illustrate. #allthethings 3. Monitors I currently run a single ultra-wide monitor but it drives me mad so in the future will be switching (back) to dual monitors probably 1440p. 4. Peripherals Don't need any, will be running Windows, have a Thermaltake mATX case with decent cooling. 5. Why are you upgrading? Machine is so old gaming is not running well and have to run most things on low settings, rendering in blender ram out of ram a lot which is a pain and want to stream.

You can see some predicted stats on userbenchmark https://www.userbenchmark.com/PCBuilder/Custom/S93988-M475904.141989.700020.89269vsS93462-M475904.141989.700020.89269?tab=MBD Questions I want to make sure the motherboard can handle the ryzen 2700x, I'm not planning on overclocking it myself. The M.2 specs on the motherboards confuse me, I could spend an extra £20 to get the Pro version of the motherboard that has 2 M.2 slots but it seems like the second slot doesn't get the full set of PCI lanes in which case isn't it pointless? I'm planning on using the existing XFX 550W PSU, I think that's enough power for now? Expandability I may at some point buy a second GPU not for SLI but for rendering power, I think the motherboard is fine for this, the transfer rate doesn't really matter as most of the time is taken up rendering. At some point I'll buy another set of RAM if I run into issues running out. Guess that's it, seems like a seriously good build for the money, but wondering what other people think?
