Suggestion for parts.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have a GTX 1060 6GB and I am planning on getting a Ryzen 2700x. I will need to upgrade my motherboard because it is currently a AM3. The current CPU I have is severely bottlenecking my GPU and also every time I play a game it slowly gets slower and slower until it's stuttering like crazy. But basically, I am planning on upgrading both my CPU, Motherboard, and RAM, and I was wondering if anybody has suggestions on what do you think would go with the CPU + GPU pairing.

Well, my budget is around 400-500$. I play several CPU intensive games like Destiny 2 and Generation Zero, Skyrim: Special Edition, GTA V, whole bunch of stuff like that. And I am in Oklahoma, US. I can give more specifics if you want.

wouldnt going for a 3600 a better choice since it has better per core power than the 2700x? its more efficient too


Im with the mentaility of "IF IM NOT SURE IF ITS ENOUGH COOLING, GO OVERKILL"

 

PS: i cooled a Ryzen 5 3600(65W) with ID cooling SE207 (200W-250W tdp lol)

Also, I'm going for the 2700x because it isn't as expensive. Currently in College atm and expenses are tight, but I am saving up to make my PC better.
