Hi Guys! I wondered if I could have some opinions here. I'm finally updating my old PC (7 years old) and I have got to this build so far. I'm reusing my Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition cooler, Case, Power Supply and Video Card for now; I expect to update my VGA in January hopefully. So the main focus for me here is the CPU, Motherboard and Memory. I will as well be buying a new HDD as soon as I find a good deal.
1. Budget & Location
I would like to not expend more than $500-$600 between CPU, Motherboard and RAM. I might think about a new VGA if is not over $250 (or I can save up and buy a better one later). I'm Using US$ as price of reference.
I'm a gamer and a web developer, I want to play videogames with the heavier being CoD: Bo4 for now (which I have been running with my current build in low with no big issue). I usually play No Man's Sky also.
For Web developing I will be using Docker for virtualization, which shouldn't really be a big issue.
I plan to use two monitors on 1080p that I currently have
I already have a licensed copy of Windows which I can migrate to my new setup. For peripherals I am using Corsair Void Pro USB, Corsair Sabre RGB, Gx Imperator Pro. I don't think this really matters.
5. Why are you upgrading?
My current build is:
- CPU: FX-8210
- RAM: Corsair LPX 2x4GB
- Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M LE/USB3
- SSD: Kingston A400 240GB
- VGA: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050
- PSU: Corsair RM750x (I know is overkill, I bought it thinking about the future)
I finally have the opportunity to invest some money on truly upgrading, I have been doing small upgrades to my old build through the years the most recent being the SSD and the PSU and last year the VGA because I really needed it but was on a tight budget. The case I have is actually a CM Silencio 352 (mATX) which I got because before I had the Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition the stock cooler for the CPU was raging like a beast and I kinda fell in love with the case so I'm liking the mATX idea.
I think the Ryzen 3600 is just fine, I wonder if the RAM and Motherboard are good choices or not and a future recommendation for a VGA if anyone have any ideas. I don't mind going AMD instead of Nvidia if there is a valid point. So far I have been thinking about getting a GTX1660 ti in the near future.
