  1. For sure. I do agree. I think I can see after I upgrade the CPU MOBO and Ram, I could do that after if my PC doesn't run well on my current PSU.
  2. So basically, Im wanting to upgrade my cpu. My specs are : i5 4690 Gigabyte windforce R9 390 8gb 10gbs of DDR3 msi z97 gaming 3 mobo PSU: HUNTKEY lw -6550HG 550W PSU I will be using my PC for editing photos and eventually video in the future however it will most likely not even be 4k then, I also game. I only play games that are old and my PC runs them easily at 60 or more fps since I don't play new games. I do want GTA 6 next year though. my upgrade options are an R5 upgrade kit which I can provide the link for if you need, it's an R5 3600. However there's an r7 2700x upgrade kit for the same price almost and Initially I was gonna get the 2700x but in Benchmarks the 2700x loses in gaming perf compared to the R5 3600 which is fine, I expected that. And in production benchmarks cause I will be using Photoshop in the near future, it wins as expected. My question is though, which ones better to get cause the R5 cores are better than the r7's and I don't even think I'll need 8 cores for the work load I'll be doing. Like for video I'm only going to be processing 2k footage at best and that's not even with my current camera equipment. the r7 2700x option would also mean I need a new PSU. PSU LIMITATION: SO , my PSU can't run my gpu and CPU at full speed (I power limit my gpu by -40%). Sounds like a bad issue sure, but It doesn't effect me almost at all cause I still run games well over 60 fps. if I go with the R5 I won't need a PSU upgrade and I could let my gpu run at full speed as I suspect my PSU could almost run my current spec of components but just came short. If I go with the R5 I technically lose 30w of cpu TDP , so I figure that extra headroom will then let me remove the power limit on my gpu. I'm trying to spend as little as possible cause I need camera equipment too. PSU's are expensive in my country and I still need to get another 4gb Ram stick and possibly an SSD. i feel like the R5 3600 will last longer than the r7 2700x due to the better Zen 2 architecture, even with 2 less cores. What are your thoughts ?
