Building My first PC in almost 12 years!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, 

So as the title says it's been a while since i built a PC. I have a 1500 budget apx. At first i thought EVGA 2070 Super and to hit my budget i was going with 32 GB of memory. i did a little more research on AMD found the Red Devil RX 5700 XT which lowered my cost a ton allowing me to up my RAM to 64GB. I do plan to game on this some but mostly i'm going to be streaming my from this playing on my xbox. is this a good trad off i know on synthetics the 2070 super tends to be about 1200 higher on score. and I've whats gaming performance side by side reviews and the different seems to be like 10 FPS max. after years of playing at 30FPS i doubt i'll be able to tell the difference. i'm just going to be in awe at the 1440p over the 1080 i've been playing on lol. Of course when i last built a PC memory was everything. i'm aware that is not the case now i've kept up on tech even tho i haven' own anything for a while. for reference the rest of my parts list is below.

 

MSi x570 MPG

AMD Ryzen 7 3700x

G.Skill ripjaws 3200 either 4 x 8GB or 4 x 16GB

1TB NVMe 3.0 (Crucial)

seagate bara. 2TB

Either PowerSpec 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular or EVGA 650BQ (which ever someone at MicroCenter points me to)

EVGE RTX 2070 Super or Red Devil RX5700 XT

Lian Li 205 for the case

 

total with RX5700 XT $1511.51

total with 2070 Super $1514.84

Hello,

 

32GB is already overkill so you don't need 64GB. And go up to 3600 CL16 if you can.

 

The 2070S can help with streaming with NVENC, so with the 3700x it's a good combo.

 

Get a less trash motherboard like the Asus Prime P or TUF if you want X570 or get a MSI B450 MAX (Tomahawk, A-Pro or Gaming plus). MSI X570 line up is trash but their B450 is quite good.

 

Get a better PSU like a Corsair RM, RMx or TXM, Phanteks AMP or Bitfenix Formula Gold, Whisper M.

Plouffe compiles nice builds, and as he mentioned the x570 line up from MSI seems is trash. Hard to say as i recently found that out myself and i have the x570 edge wifi.

Don't experience (much) issues with it tho running a 3700. but you will run into issues if you decide to upgrade to 39XX later on.

 

As for the NVME, if you're short on cash simply go for an M.2 SSD. My experience with casual gaming is that it makes no noticeable difference between the 2. and yes i have both an SSD and an NVME on M.2 slots.

I do kind of want to go x570 in case i upgrade later. the prime p is actually cheaper. so that sounds good. always used to build on MSI motherboards so that was kinda and old habbits thing. so thanks for the tips guys i think i have it figured out i'll let you know how is goes and what i decide to go with. Still got 3 hours before Microsenter opens so later today maybe. tomorrow we will see.

No, because the lower the CL the better compared to the latency 3600CL16 is better than 3600CL19 even 3200CL16 would be better than 3600CL19. So at almost the same price, 3600CL16 is the way to go.
