  1. Hey, I hope to reuse some parts from my current PC, mainly my GTX 1080 (that will be upgraded at some point down the line, but not right now), my PSU (be quiet! Dark Power Pro 850W) and maybe my old CPU AIO (Corsair H80). This is what I currently planned: (I'm new to this forum and not quite sure how to properly import a PPP Part List into a post) PCPartPicker Part List: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/yBxMb8 CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor (€337.20 @ Amazon Deutschland) Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ULTRA ATX AM4 Motherboard (€269.00 @ Alternate) Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory (€92.90 @ Alternate) Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (€77.90 @ Alternate) Total: €777.00 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
  2. Hi everyone, I'm currently building a new PC for mostly gaming, but also things like photo-editing, 3d-modeling for 3d-printing and programming. I decided to get the Ryzen 7 3700X and a X570 MoBo. What kind of RAM would you recommend? I've alredy looked up things like CAS-Latency, Timings and Clock-Speeds. Now for the Zen2 CPUs high clock-speed (3600Mhz+) RAM seems optimal, however I also read that dual-rank RAMs can have the same performance at lower clock-speeds. 3600MHz dual-rank RAMs are way to expensive, so I'm asking myself if it's better to buy a 3200Mhz dual-rank RAM like this one 32GB (2x 16GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX Black DDR4-3200 CL16 (CMK32GX4M2B3200C16) or if I should go with a higer clocked single-rank kit. What would you recommend? And which kit specifically? Bonus question: What do you think of the Gigabbyte X570 Aorus Ultra? Any input is appreciated
  3. Wow, thanks for your quick replys! Could you explain why you chose the Ryzen 7 3700X over for example the i7 9700k?
  4. Hi everyone, this is my first post in this forum, so please excuse me if i do some things inccorrectly. For this post I just followed the "Build Plan Thread Recommodations" post. 0. Background Info: I bought my current PC from a friend about 5 years ago, when he built himself a new one. Since then I only swapped the graphics card (previously 2 GeForce GTX 670 in SLI) for a Gainward GTX 1080 GLH. Here are the current specs: Mainboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 CPU: Intel i7 3770K CPU Cooler: Corsair H80 All-in-one CPU Cooler GPU: Gainward GTX 1080 GLH RAM: 4x 4GB Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 1600MHz PSU: be quiet Dark Power Pro 850W Storage: Various SSDs and one HDD Now I decided to upgrade my PC, though I realised that would basically mean just building a new one and reusing parts like the PSU and GPU. I have done some researched in the past few weeks, but to be honest I'm overwhelmend with all the things to consider (like matching RAM clock speed and CPU capability to use it, ect.) I have also always been somewhat of an Intel fanboy, but now I'm not sure what to buy anymore. 1. Budget and Location I'm from Germany, and prices here seem to be a bit higher than in the States. Now I plan on keeping the GPU (and whatever else I can), but apart from that I really want to future-proof this PC. Still I don't want to spend more than 1000€. 2. Aim The System will be primarily used for gaming. Anything from Strategy (eg. CIV or StarCraft), RPGs (eg. TW3, Cyberpunk) or FPS (Borderlands 3, Rainbow 6). I also do photo editing, some coding and desing 3D-Models for 3D-Printing, etc. I don't stream or do anything like that. 3. Monitors The PC is hooked up to two Monitors, my "main" 1440p 144Hz GSync Monitor and a standard 1080p 60Hz Monitor (I only play on one). 4. Why I'm Upgranding I want to be able to run my games in glorious 1440p and 100+fps, and while my GPU never seems to reach it's limit (yet), the CPU is really struggling in newer games. 5. Additional Info/ questions This is my first PC Build, so I don't know all the nuances yet. I want to keep my harddrives, but add an M.2 SSD. RGB would be nice, but ins't a priority. What about RAM? Should i go for 16 or 32 GB? Intel or AMD? Would my old CPU Cooler be enough for whatever CPU you recommend?
