  1. Would definitely suggest waiting for the new GPU launches in a couple of months. If you must buy now, get a 3900X with a 2080S or Ti if gaming is your main focus. 3900XT is a waste of money, and the 3950X is probably overkill, but if video editing is your priority, then it may be worthwhile. With this budget I would get a $200ish B550 or X570 board. Most the B550s at this price will be good, but be careful with some of the X570 -make sure to read reviews on each board. Consider the X570 Tomahawk (if available) or the X570 Tuf gaming (cheaper) if you need the extra pcie4.0 connectivity if X570. If not something like the B550 tomahawk will do nicely
  2. Would be better looking on sites like eBay and Facebook marketplace yourself. 575 (if it's pounds/dollars/euros) is a pretty decent budget anyway
  3. If it's not for gaming, the HP Envy x360 should do nicely. Can be equipped with a 4500U or 4700U which gives plenty of CPU muscle. Should also be able to configure it with 16gb and a choice of screens from 300/400/1000nit, all touchscreen. I think it's also on sale at the minute, and a manufacturer like HP will almost certainly have a back to school sale
  4. For gaming performance, I would make getting 16GB of ram and a better GPU a priority. Upgrading to ampere sounds like a good idea. ITX probably isnt the best as far as price to performance, but if you want the small form factor, go for it I guess.
  5. Looks very suspicious to me. Sticker is yellow/gold whereas the platinum certified units are whiteish colour. Also if it has "true" in the name can you really trust it. Save yourself some bother and get a reliable and tested unit from another manufacturer. Most systems dont need 700W anyway, so you can save some money there
  6. As @dizmosaid, prices will be different later in the year, so I would advise asking again then if you dont buy now. If you do buy now, heres my suggestion: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor £159.00 @ Amazon UK Motherboard ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard £74.98 @ Amazon UK Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory £60.98 @ Amazon UK Storage Kingston A400 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive £27.94 @ Box Limited Storage Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £34.63 @ Amazon UK Video Card Sapphire Radeon RX 5600 XT 6 GB PULSE Video Card £276.36 @ Alza Case Cooler Master MasterBox NR400 (w/o ODD) MicroATX Mid Tower Case £65.47 @ Scan.co.uk Power Supply Corsair TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply £69.99 @ Currys PC World Monitor AOC 24G2U/BK 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor £189.95 @ Amazon UK Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £959.30 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-07-23 17:11 BST+0100 -Kept the 3600 as its so well priced. -The Pro4 may need a BIOS update to support ryzen 3000. If you want to be certain, contact the seller and ask if it ships with the new BIOS. If you have an older ryzen chip you can of course flash it yourself. If you dont want this hassle, get an MSI B450 mortar max, which is £20 more but is 3000 ready. -If you need a bit more cash to fit in the mouse and keyboard, get a 1660 super, however you will lose a bit of performance. Hope this helps
  7. Your looking at a new RX580 or 1650 super for this price, or perhaps a used 1070 if you get lucky. If the PC is just for gaming I would suggest spending a bit less on your CPU and more on your GPU. Ill put together a list now
  8. Whats your budget? Would also recommend getting a different motherboard, and maybe a different PSU
  9. Should get a nice bump if you lower the settings. Cant tell you for sure what fps you'll get, but it should be pretty decent. Nvidia cards hold their value pretty well. It's a petty nice model that you have, so I would imagine you could get $500-600 for it, if not more
  10. Im surprised you arent getting 60fps@1080p with that hardware. Have you updated to all the latest drivers? You would definitely have a CPU bottleneck if you get a very high end card. An overclock to the 1700X and if you only play at 1440p at high settings, may mean its not that bad. If you want really high refresh rates at lower settings, I would suggest throwing in a 3600 or 3700X, which should be supported by your motherboard already, and will perform much better in games
  11. Not really sure about this model. From one review I read it seems OK. I would still look at this list and try and get something from the C or above tier: Something like the Corsair CV, Seasonic S12iii or the Bequiet Purepower 11 may be worth looking at
  12. Just to add, I would get a slightly better PSU than this. Maybe something like a Corsair CX series Have a look at the PSU tier list in the PSU sub-forum for guidance
  13. MC will run on most potatoes, and this is far better than a potato. You should get a very good experience, maybe drop a bit if you have a high entity count, but should be good otherwise
  14. Even a 2080Ti will stuggle pushing 1440p at 240Hz. You should still get a great experience with the monitor, just dont expect 200+ fps unless you're playing esports titles or you significantly lower the in-game settings. Going for one of the new GPUs when they release sounds like a good idea, and you should be able to make up a large amount of the cost if you sell your 2080S
  15. yes,100x100 according to samsungs website. Basically all mid and high end monitors should have a VESA mount
  16. If money is no issue, and you like curves, then the new Samsung G7 may be worth looking at. Just note it does have some flaws Heres a good review of it:
  17. We don't know yet, but the 8700K is still a very capable gaming CPU so i would imagine it will hold its own pretty well, especially in GPU limited games
  18. If you want to buy new, the Lenovo Ideapad 5 14 is worth a look at
  19. Ryzen 4000 is probably not going to be released till the very end of the year, so I would go ahead and get the 3600. However, if you feel you can wait, theres no harm in it.
  20. I would go for the second list, although both are good. You get a better motherboard and a higher quality PSU. Could save $15 by going with a Crucial P1 drive instead, but otherwise looks good
  21. Start your own topic and everyone will be more than happy to help
  22. If monitors are not included in the budget: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor £151.56 @ Amazon UK Motherboard ASRock B550M Pro4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard £121.68 @ Amazon UK Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory £77.58 @ Aria PC Storage Crucial P1 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive £60.67 @ CCL Computers Storage Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £52.95 @ Amazon UK Video Card Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB GAMING OC Video Card £377.99 @ Amazon UK Case Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Airflow ATX Mid Tower Case £79.95 @ AWD-IT Power Supply Corsair TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply £69.99 @ Currys PC World Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £992.37 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-07-21 16:30 BST+0100 If monitor(s) are included: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor £151.56 @ Amazon UK Motherboard ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard £74.98 @ Amazon UK Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory £60.98 @ Amazon UK Storage Kingston A400 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive £28.79 @ Amazon UK Storage Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £52.95 @ Amazon UK Video Card Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB GAMING OC Video Card £377.99 @ Amazon UK Case Cooler Master MasterBox NR400 (w/o ODD) MicroATX Mid Tower Case £57.66 @ CCL Computers Power Supply Corsair TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply £69.99 @ Currys PC World Monitor AOC 24G2U/BK 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor £181.88 @ More Computers Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £1056.78 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-07-21 16:36 BST+0100 Then you could grab another cheap secondary display for about £100 (wont be 144Hz though). If you cant stretch this far, and must have two displays, get a RX 5700 or 5600XT instead
  23. Get the Gaming OC then. Just from looking up a few benchmarks, the 1660S offers about twice the performance of the 1050ti in a non-cpu limited scenario, so definitely a worthy upgrade. As @Oswin mentioned, for €250 also consider the 5600XT which will outperform the 1660S
  24. Both will probably perform within a couple of % of eachother. Definitely save the money on the gaming OC
