1st AMD rig planning

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello. My 4th gen Haswell gaming rig die due to motherboard or CPU failure. I already swapped my power supply with a brand new one, and the PC no alive.

 

Is this a good planning build? First AMD gaming rig.

 

Budget: $600 - $700 USD with Windows 10 Pro x64. No need for case, power supply, peripherals, and hard drives. My Case is 750D and EVGA power supply and alive functional hard drives.

 

Overclocking maybe in the future

 

I have Noctua NH D15s, and I might plan to use on Ryzen CPU.

 

I already owned GTX 970. Will my GTX 970 bottleneck the system?

 

Productivity yes. VM yes. Can Ryzen 5 do productivity and VM good?

 

I have my eyes on MSI X470 Gaming Plus, ASUS Prime X470 Pro, ASUS ROG Strix X470-F Gaming, and MSI X470 Gaming Pro. Are these boards good for overclocking with good VRM and power delivery?

 

I am typing this on my secondary potato gaming laptop with i5 7200U and GTX 950M 2GB GDDR5 Acer laptop.

Grab an amd 3800x. 

Better yet, 3900x

I would personally go for a R5 3600 instead of the 2700X. It'll be faster in gaming and almost as fast in productivity workloads.

 

What PSU do you have?

It'll do pretty good for R5 overclocking. 3950X? Probably not. But you should be fine even up to a 3900X.

I'd go for the 3600 personally.

 

If you're asking for overclocking, it'll do good for both.

3600 can do video editing, streaming, gaming, and vm fine?

You only need one. Your body has two.
