Future proof

52 minutes ago, Tisham said:

Is the new i3 9100f future proof with a good mother board + gtx 1060 / 1660 (zotac)...... 

Or should i get ryzen 5 3500 with rx 550 gpu and good motherboard

From this bracket, i say Ryzen will be more "future proof" than the i3, why?

- Whenever you need, you can upgrade to the top cpu with 16 cores. On Intel it's 8 cores max (9900k). That's a very long way to go.

- You might be able (it's not confirmed but possible) to upgrade to Ryzen 4000 without changing motherboard, whereas the Intel 9000 will need a new one if you want to upgrade to the 10th gen.

- PCI-E 4.0

 

Also if you want to get the 3500, don't waste your money on the RX550, better get the 3400g with integrated gpu that performs the same.

Get a RX570 or gtx 1060 at least.

nothing is future proof.

 

if you want a good upgrade path, get the Ryzen CPU, because the 4000 series will be compatible with current motherboards, while Intel is locked on 9th gen at best.


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.

neither of these are "future proof", i3 is bare minimum and r5 is ok for now


MSI GX660 + i7 920XM @ 2.8GHz + GTX 970M + Samsung SSD 830 256GB

Like said beforfre future-proof doesnt excist.
But having a good upgrade path is definitely attainable.

I would advice Ryzen, since you can get a cheapo CPU on there now, and in maybe 5 years you can do that again without the need to change motherboard. (and i mean a good 2nd hand CPU, not new). That would be a good upgrade path.

Try that with Intel and you have bought 3 motherboards in the meantime plus the accompanying RAM...


When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

You can use the PC for more than one year. If anything, you might want to upgrade the GPU, but I seriously doubt the Ryzen 5 3500 will be obsolete in 2021.

By "Future proof" he means a build that can be maintained as long as possible. Obviously nothing is future proof by literal meaning of the word.

 

AM4 platform has the best CPU's right now, and its gonna be compatible with Ryzen 4000 cpu's as well so go for that one.

We know what it means, we were trying to educate if you hadnt noticed. :)

But yes the AM4 platform is where you wanna be for having the good 'upgrade-path'.

Same crap as 550, don't do it.

Save some money go for RX570 or 1060.

Search ebay for some used ones, they are very cheap right now.
