$1250CAD Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I’m currently looking to upgrade my rig from my setup in my signature. I plan to keep everything except mobo, cpu, GPU, and ram. I would LIKE to go with intel and nvidia purely for fanboy reasons, but it seems like amd has been preforming really well lately. 

 

Regardless, I have a PC partpicker link below with a possible upgrade. What is everyone’s opinions? I’m not looking to upgrade to another mid tier rig, I’m looking to upgrade to an above average powerful, sexy rig. (Without being the obviously expensive 9900k and 1080TI.) what do you guys think of my list below? As well as possible changes?. I’ve also included a possible intel/nvidia rig for a little more

If you can wait until the end of August, partner cards of the 5700XT will be available for much better performance, but if you can't wait, a that blower model is fine for the time being.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explainedˢsͥˡ ͮuͤ ͬˢgͭ ͦᶰoͤ

I probably should have included in my OP, I’m actually planning on waiting until around November to upgrade. I’m going away for about 3 months soon, so I don’t see a point in upgrading until I get back

In that case, a new parts list at that point in time will serve you better, pricing is due to change

MSI is comming in with new B450 for third gen Ryzen. So its very much worth waiting a bit to save a dime and get a tomahawk then.

 

All of the newer B450 will be marked with something at the end to indicate it being newer

Awesome, thanks. I’m also strongly considering pushing my budget to $1500 and getting a 9700k with a tomahawk and a 5700xt

Yeah I figured it would change, I’m just looking into it now to get an idea, and it’s fun

9700k is worse choice than going for a 3700x. 

 

lacking HT is just awful with you being able to get an 8 core for the same price. that is just as fast singlethreaded. while also being able to cool it. 

 

 

also go with the non-x parts from AMD when applicable. the X series parts really dont add anything.

Okay. I don’t really know much about current AMD parts. Would a 3700x significantly outperform a 9700k? And ontop of that is would a 3700x be considered a powerful cpu by today’s standards? I also can’t find any not x series parts on part picker

perform roughly the same today while being cheaper. also it has Hyperthreading meaning it wont die next year when stuff starts to use 8 threads properly

in other words, a better CPU.

yes it is.

Sorry, my bad. I was only looking for 3700, not 3600. I would probably end up going for the 3700x instead of a 3600, for the extra two cores.
