Upgrading

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My current build

FX-8350

MSI 970A-G46

16GB (4x4GB) RAM

128GB SSD

XFX Radeon HD 7870

XFX 550w power supply

 

 

I need a new graphics card, a 1tb hard drive, and either another tb or a 500gb, and a new monitor. The one i have now seems to have screen tearing issues. When I'm in minecraft it'll look like I'm playing at maybe 40 fps, but it'll say I'm at 114. I've even tried turning vsync on.

To be honest, I suggest you start saving up for a new PC.

Just say @Boinbo if you need me! I'll be limited to GPU, CPU, general discussion, peripherals, and new builds and planning though. I'm a potato.

Unfortunately I think you've just wasted your money, the AMD FX line is awful and will limit you in terms of GPU upgrades.

Have to agree with @LinusTechTipsFanFromDarlo here, you should upgrade your motherboard, CPU, and ram, to get better improvement.

Just the SSD is worth reusing in the new PC.

That depends on your budget.

I've reworked my previous PCPP list, it's now bang on budget.

@LinusTechTipsFanFromDarlo You can get it for even cheaper while still maintaining quality parts by dropping the RGB ram and switching to the RX 580 Armor which has a better stock clock and can also be Overclocked to outperform the nitro, the Gigabyte Aorus boards also have better VRMs than MSI has on their B450 chipset boards. Also the H500 is an oven, it has terrible airflow and in no way worth the extra $30 - $40 over a decent MAtx case.


Main Desktop: Cpu - I7-8700k @5ghz | Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E | Gpu - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC Ram - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200mhz | Aio - H100i Pro RGB | Psu - Evga 850 GQ | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 1x 1TB 1x 512GB / 1x Seagate Ironwolf Pro 4TB HDD |

 

TV Streaming PC: Intel Nuc CPU - i7 8th Gen | RAM - 16GB DDR4 2666mhz | Storage - 256GB WD Black M.2 NVME SSD |

 

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S10+ - Ceramic White 512GB |

 

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

I'm assuming you're planning on re-using your old ram since i don't see ram listed on this build.

What's the clock speed on your ram?

You should upgrade your ram as well. Ryzen benefits from higher clock speeds. 3000 is the sweet spot. Go for one of the cheaper ones recommended above and put it in your build.

FX-series uses DDR3 which is incompatible with the Ryzen CPU anyway that uses DDR4, he has to get new RAM either way.

I've decided its easier to just sell my computer and build a new one completely. I changed some parts out and added some, is this build okay?

Don't do 4x4GB RAM. Dual channel is what you want, and you're overspending that way.

Better PSU for less, significantly better GPU, and much larger HDD. I personally wouldn't overspend on Samsung if it's not being used for heavy read/write use.

The case... Highly personal decision. I went with a slightly larger case for build ease, and since this PSU isn't modular. It's got a PSU enclosure, so that shouldn't effect management.
