Currently running a i5 2500 with 8gigs of ram and a 128GB SSD.
Couple of months ago I upgraded my Radeon 7950 to RTX2060, now it's time to upgrade the rest since I feel my system has become unstable ever since.
Feels like it's dying / bottlenecking. (random BSODs, PC rebooting during demanding games with sound stutter, ... )
I ran FurMark without problems for couple of hours, so my GPU seems fine.
Prime95 gave this error:
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Anyway, doesn't matter much, looking for a new rig anyway!
My current build list so far:
Some extra information
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Casual gaming (dad to be) + every day use.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
Currently using a 24" inch monitor, might upgrade later. High/Ultra @ 1080p.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
I already bought a graphics card (RTX 2060), got € 800 left.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
Provide any additional details you wish below.
Not entirely sure about the SSD.
Do I need extra case fans if I'm not really planning to OC?
I read the MAX version of the mobo does NOT need to be flashed to be compatible with the latest Ryzen CPU's, is that correct?
Any other comparable cases I should look at? I like the minimalistic / clean design of it.
Memory brand / speed ok? I read that 3600 is ideal for the Ryzen 3600
650W PSU enough / overkill ?
Should I wait for black friday sales / holiday sales?
Thanks in advance for the feedback!
