First AMD Build (Gaming/Revit)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi Guys,

 

I'm looking into doing my first AMD build, currently using an i3 8100. It will be primarily for gaming, photoshop and Revit/AutoCAD/Lumion work. My current pc handles fine for the Photoshop/Revit etc work but I'm looking for something which will be future proofed for the next couple of years and able to play new released like Cyberpunk 2077 on decent settings. Based in the UK and already have all the peripherals and will be using a few parts from my current pc, mainly my 1660ti and WD Black 500gb M2 with the intention of upgrading the graphics card in a few years. My budget is around the 650 bit can be stretched if worth it, struggling to decide between a 3600, 3600x and 3700x at the moment. Current build list us below, any thoughts would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Good build, I made a few changes to save some money here and there (better rams though).

What's your thoughts on 3600 vs 3600x? 

They are mostly the same, the 3600x comes with a better cooler, but if you don't OC the 3600 will have more or less the same performance.
