  1. Alright, thanks to everyone, I think I‘ll get the 2600 + RX 470 with More Ram, and if it doesn’t suffice with what I’m after, then I can always sell my old components and get the Ryzen.
  2. Speaking of GPU: Would a 1650 (non Super) paired with a i7-2600 work great as well, or should I go Ryzen and wait for the 1650 or maybe something better... Currently torn between these options.. Actually both options (Ryzen +16GB 3000Mhz Ram, Mobo and Case) (i7-2600 + 1650 (non super) and 8GB DDR3 would be in the same ballpark price wise (236€ for Ryzen, 247€ for i7+ 1650)
  3. Quick CPU question, would you get the 3500x for 110€ with its stock cooler or would you recommend a Ryzen 5 2600 with an aftermarket cooler for 107€ ? Cause I'm not sure if 6core/12threads makes that big of a difference, because of the IPC Improvements the 3500x has.
  4. Thanks, for that suggestion, didn't think of AliExpress actually. For the Motherboard I would choose this one from Gigabyte as I would like a Micro ATX Formfactor: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07KX428VH/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&psc=1 It's only 60€ so yeah I found that 3500x on Aliexpress, while it's only a 6core/6 thread chip, its surely better than a 1600 right? Where did you find the RAM?
  5. Good point, a i5-2400 goes for $17 on Ebay here. so yeah that little bit might actually help
  6. Yeah... Maybe I could squeeze in another $50. Also I could get an RX 470 8GB for $86 used.. So yeah... Maybe I should allow myself more budget?! I mean my entire PC cost me $148,68 last year(all parts used)
  7. What Ryzen would you suggest? For me a i7-2600 would be $66 and 16GB of DDR3 would cost me $57 (all used) so yeah.. kind of expensive as you said..
  8. Hello everyone, I'm currently thinking about upgrading to Ryzen or (if there's any option atm) to a newer Intel system, however I'm not sure if just going i7-2600 and going to 16GB of Ram would also do it. My current specs are: i5-2400 OEM Mobo 8GB 1600Mhz DDR3 AMD R9 270x Samsung 850 EVO 500GB I play at 1080p on a 60Hz Display. Also, this new PC is basically my first real attempt to get to PC Gaming, as currently most AAA Games that are being released are being played on my Xbox. Now, with the new consoles right around the corner, and Microsoft publishing their AAA Games on PC also, I no longer see the need to buy a console. My Budget is 300$ max. and I'm based in Germany, so no Microcenter or CEX for me :/
