Picks for AMD gaming rig under 800$

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have picked through some of the choices and came up with this ,,a AMD Ryzen 5 3600X with Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite with ddr4 T-Force Xtreme argb 4000 mghz and  Radeon Saphire RX580 8G work together well?

why spend that much on the motheboard when the budget is so tight? And why not get the GTX 1650 super, which has the same performance for less cost? And the PSU is no good.

 

@ChrimsonRain if you're spending only $800, DDR4 4000 and an X570 motherboard cuts off too much from the GPU. A B450 MAX board from MSI is a better call, with some more conservative ram.

This allows you to get a 1660 super in your budget, giving way better performance off the bat.


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 - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

I would agree with @Fasauceome 's build recommendation.

Earnist_ 's was ok, but too many compromise for a Gaming PC. A budget build doesn't need an X570 motherboard, since motherboards don't impact gaming performances at all these days anyway.

 

If you want to save even more money, you could swap the ATX motherboard for it's MATX variant, too. It's a 15$ discount right there that you could put elsewhere... like in Shipping costs or taxes lol.

MSI B450M GAMING PLUS Micro ATX AM4 - $88.76

 

Just remember OP, you'll need to bios flashback the motherboard to make it compatible with Zen2 CPUs, so don't be alarmed if it doesn't boot because you forgot. (unless MSI updated the bios from the factory with newer boards)

Take the motherboard out of the box and flash it right away, no need to install anything onto it, just plug the power cables onto it. Download the latest bios, extract the zip file and rename the bios to MSI.ROM . Put it at the root of a FAT32 usb drive and plug it in the closest USB connector to the button in the back of the motherboard... Press the button, light goes red and flashes for a few minutes. Done.

MSIs X570 boards are hot garbage. 

120gb SSDs are borderline useless, it'd make more sense to buy a 1TB SSD.

You should get a Rx 580 or 570 and that’s way over 800 when taxes are included.  If you are strictly at 800$ then cut the ssd and get a 2600 instead

Never cut the SSD, it's a bitch and a half to reinstall Windows and put up with the slowness. Always start with the SSD and add an HDD later.

True but if he cuts hdd then 120gb isn’t a lot

You have to quote us so we can see your responses

 

That's why I added a 500gb SSD instead of a 120gb SSD in my part suggestion.

Correct. Still fits nicely into the budget though.
