Ryzen 3700x build thoughts

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Posted a few days ago but didn’t get much feedback so I thought I’d try again

 

1. Budget & Location

northeast USA

would like to stay under $2500 if possible

2. Aim

i typically play older games but would like to venture into newer heavy gaming high FPS/resolution (prefer immersive rpgs , but also have an interest in  playing anno 1800, shadow of the tomb raider among others. just restricted by my dated rig. may also would like to dip into VR in the future when i can afford a headset(opinions on that would be great too)

also run programs in the background (ie discord, 2 to 3 web, vpn etc.)

 

I'm torn on what monitor or monitors to get. i don't need super extravagant but a decent 144hz refresh rate and 1080-1440 resolution. im leaning towards an ultra wide currently, 35in but also tend to use a second monitor on occasion.

 

i don't plan on doing any overclocking hence just the stock cooler with the ryzen cpu but may upgrade to an aio in the future. More then likely the Corsair that matches the rgb scheme I’ve picked.

 

4. Peripherals

i have access to windows education for free and as far as peripherals im using razer naga and anasi keyboard logitech g933 headset and plan on using them in the new rig. may also get the farming simulator wheel/side controller (go ahead and laugh)

5. Why are you upgrading?

short answer is its time. 5+ year old rig has trouble running most any game. some games are only playable on the lowest settings If playable at all. have also been experiencing blue screens rather often that i have neither the time/ adequate knowledge to address.

 

 

i don’t see my chosen ram on the qvl but I’ve seen other builds on PCPartPicker that show them using it. Maybe I missed it.

depends on the desk real estate, you've got a lot of options. Personally i don't go for ultrawide anymore because the games I play don't have good ultrawide support, so some decent picks for 1440p 1444Hz:

curved too.

 

If you get this monitor, you're still under the $2500 budget so feel free to get a 2080 or 2080 super.


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, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

I don't see any issue with this build and the recommends that @Fasauceome gave are pretty much what I was going to as well. I personally prefer a 27 inch 2560x1440p 144hz over an ultrawide any day.


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.

Only thing I was concerned with was not seeing that ram on the motherboard QVL.

I have plenty of space what games do you play that don’t support ultrawide? I hadn’t thought of that. I’m currently using a very old flat screen tv as my monitor lol

Overwatch and TF2 don't properly scale the viewmodel to fit ultrawide, tf2 retains the normal FOV and just stretches the edges and overwatch either zooms in or uses black bars.
