Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so currently i only have:

E7500 (Q9550 or X5460)

Random G41 Board its called bulldozer and the heatsink called foxconn idk what that is

no cooler  (raijintek aidos)

No GPU (RX 470 or GTX 1050)

1gb of ram (1x8gb hyper X kingston)

320gb HDD ( going to change it anytime soon cause its so old)

Bulldozer psu 500W continous 300W (Pure Power 10 400W)

1 exchaust fan planning to buy 3 120mm and 1 140mm

Powerlogic azzurra 3000 not going to change it till i get tired of it

768 monitor so it's 720p

for the new build:

Ryzen 3300

X470 board or B550

2x8gb of ram im thinknig on buying klevv bold series X cause is the cheapest and got 3200mhz

 

For the new build I have a budget of 500ish USD and I don't live at America I'm at southeast Asia 

 

Used Intel coffee lake is dropping a lot sooo, I'm thinking of Intel or cascade tbh

 

Buying this components probably next year so I can wait on the new CPU, motherboard, and ram

 

Is there any advise?

For some reason I forgot what I want to ask.  So I'm thinking coffee lake used and it's being a catastrophe here the price is stupid i7 8700 is about the same as ryzen 5  2600X if I can found 1 and it's sold out earlier so which is better?  Or wait for cascade to?

In my opinion Intel is much better, i would go for the 8700 by far.

I agree. I got 8th gen i3 8100 and its fantasic for the 160 cad i got it for. Works way better than the 9590 my step dad calls "overkill". I wish i did save a bit longer to get the 8600k though. But from my experiance intel is by far better gaming related. Ryzen is better if your going to stream and/or edit videos and/or photoshop.

Logitech s120 i think they are called. 20 bucks. Intel would be a good choice for you.

You re buying next year and your budget is around 500 usd. I would advise to go for an APU. Zen 2 is almost out so a 3xxx APU would fit  perfectly for your budget. Wait a few months to see what's best for your needs considering performance/price. If you change your mind and go for a new setup right now i would advise 2200g/2400g along with a good b450 board.

P.S. I think both 2600x and 8700k even in the next year would be impossible to fit your budget along with mobo/ram/psu/GPU and maybe a cpu cooler. So aim lower.

yeah i hope i get kinda 500ish usd for next year. the i7 8700 is just once in a life time sale i think cause thats no way to get that again anytime soon

Yeah. If push comes to shove get the 8350k if you cant find anything for the 6700 or 8400. You could also look back at 4790k's.

I don't really like going for 4 cores and no hyper threading TBH. 4790k is unreasonable it's the same as i3 8100 I guess ram pricing gonna come in handy?

4 cores and no hyper threading works for me but it would be better to get a cpu with hyper threading. Just save and go 9600k or 8600k i say. Or get 3rd gen ryzen. 3600x or 3600.

8400 doesn't worth it unless you could buy only intel cpus. 6700 is a great choice but price is still unreasonable. Both 8400 and 6700 can't fit your budget along with motherboard and ram, not mentioning psu, gpu, probably a new case and  a cpu cooler. Unless your budget could climb from 500$ to 1500 $. As i said above aim lower. Even an APU i suggested will fit hardly in your budget but it is the most viable choice here. 
P.S. If you only intend on gaming at the pc and do nothing else, you might consider buying a console instead.

4790k even used is still a much much better cpu than both i5 8400 and i3 8350 but an old platform whereas with the same money you spend there, you could get something newer and better.

I might have unintentionally make some misunderstanding but the 500usd is only for CPU, ram, and mobo that's how much I'm willing to spend for those 3 components

Oooh my suggestion changes completely now. Get a 2600x/1700x and a msi b450 Tomahawk along with 16 gigs of ram. That's the best bang for your bucks.
