Thoughts on this upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey there!

So (once again) I'm upgrading a pc again. And I'm in need of some thoughts or other recomendations!

 

I'm moving this build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GN9q29

To this:

I'll be using it for gaming and streaming, this is pretty much the max of my budget (600 euro's). But I'll be looking into upgrading my GPU in the near future!

What do you guys think of this build?

That gpu upgrade is pretty redundant, don't look at anything below a 1070, 590 or 2060

 

Look at getting a 2700x or waiting for the 3000 chips from AMD. They'll do better for streaming

 

Though, I'd upgrade your ram too, 2100 is pretty slow for today, and especially so for Ryzen processors.

I added the wrong GPU in the first build my bad! ? I looked into making a ryzen 2700x build but that doesn't fit in my budget at the moment. Since I'm also upgrading the case etc.

And yes I'll be waiting for the 3000 chips for my main PC. (If they are any good)

Whats the price difference between a 1060 6GB and an 8GB RX 580?

1060 6GB is about 40USD more expensive

Then get the 580, it performs very similarly.

Alrighty, what do you think of the rest of the build?

Eh, I still feel for streaming you should get a 2700/x. The motherboards are cheaper as well.

 

I'd also still advise to upgrade your ram to something faster.

 

I know this is the US PCPP, (Used this because inventory for Netherlands pcpp seems off) but the prices should be around your budget if I estimated right.

Unfortunately these components are so much cheaper in the USA right now you are 200+ over the budget. ?

 

Edit: you still got the 2133 ram
