Help required from Singapore

Recommended Posts

Posted Original PosterOP

Hi, I'm planning on building a new setup basically for gaming.

I also want to futureproof this usage perhaps for more than 5 years if possible. Would appreciate any help/suggestions provided.聽馃榾

Games: CALL OF DUTY, WITCHER 3, STAR WARS FALLEN ORDER, ANTHEM and future games

I've actually went through a computer shop brochure to select the components that i think is good.聽

FYI, I'm from Singapore, so the price here is based on SGD.聽

My budget say in USD would be around $2000聽

I would like to build this setup around the graphic card 2070 Super...

  1. I would like to know if there is an AMD equivalent (as i heard AMD are generally cheaper , also if there are any pros and cons of using AMD)
  2. Any other components to swap out for?
  3. A good motherboard for AMD

Pros of AMD is that it has better multicore performance and almost competing in single core performance from intel. to be honest, i dont see that much cons since the release of zen 2. if you can wait a bit more and see what the core 10th gen does, maybe intel can still compete. but eh.聽

also, for $2000 wouldnt that fit a 2080s聽at that point?


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

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

Here's an AMD equivalent. These are already in SGD pricing.

You should be able to upgrade to a better processor in the future should you decide to upgrade. An AMD 3600 should be enough for just gaming.

personally i would go a bit cheaper motherboard

(going off of australian prices)

a 2070s is about $850 - 950聽

and a motherboard聽is like $120 - 200 for a good one

so save the money on the mobo and add it to a gpu

unless your motherboard comes with the cpu in that price as i dont think that a motherboard alone is worth 75ish% of a 2070 super and if it is just the motherboard it would probably be cheaper ordering from overseas

other than that it looks ok for an intel system聽

if you really wanted to go AMD have a look at the price difference of going a 2nd gen 2600x (allow you to overclock) or even a 2600 with a 3rd gen board and when the ryzen 4 series releases (im estimating between july and october next year) buy one of them and swap out the cpu (will need to update bios but it will allow you to spend a little more on the gpu side which games will take use of, especially in the future)

Yeah, its possible. Just didn't think i would require that high of a GPU. Cause currently im using a 1060 so even an upgrade to a 2070 sounds good to me.聽馃槀

Reason I'm looking at AMD is cause it looks i might be able to cut some cost and use it somewhere else.

I don't plan on overclocking. Heck, i don't know how...聽

The partpicker I quoted you has you bumped up to a 2080 super on an AMD system and lower than the price you quoted.

I notice that you've selected the RAM to be 16GB instead of 32GB.

I'm assuming that this is because 16GB is sufficient and 32GB would be underutilized?聽

Yes, you're only doing gaming. You don't need 32GB.
