Advice for a PC upgrade

not sure which EU country you're from, I used Germany partpicker, but prices should be similar.

If you can push a bit over 1500, I'd go for r9 3900. if you can't get the 3700x. the 3800x isn't really worth it unless it's the same price as the 3700x.

you can keep you PSU as well.

Hi all

I hope you can help me. I am working a lot of  Video editing / rendering and a little gaming but no AAA title.

currently i am running a 5 year old system and the rendering is getting hard, with all the 4k videos i get currently: Oh and i run 4  (1 is mirrored) monitors of this system. I don´t need any RGB stuff^^

This is my current  build:

  • 256GB Crucial MX100 2.5" (6.4cm) SATA 6Gb/s MLC (CT256MX100SSD1) 
  • Intel Core i5 4460 4x 3.20GHz So.1150 BOX 
  • 2x 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3-1600 DIMM CL9 Dual Kit 
  • 4096MB PowerColor Radeon R9 290 PCS+ Aktiv PCIe 3.0 x16 (Retail) 
  • ASRock H97 Pro4 Intel H97 So.1150 Dual Channel DDR3 ATX Retail 
  • EKL Alpenföhn Brocken ECO 
  • Nanoxia Deep Silence 3 gedämmt Midi Tower ohne Netzteil schwarz 
  • 500 Watt be quiet! Straight Power 10-CM Modular 80+ Gold 
  • I added a couple more HDD´s and SSD´s but all in all thats it

 

I know this can´t be upgraded to a current System. 

I was thinking keeping the HDD´s and SSD´s and the case (and whatever i can use with the new system)

for the new system i am thinking of:

  • Ryzen 7 3800X
  • RTX 2070 Super maybe a 2080 Super
  • Motherboard i don´t have any idea
  • another 1-2 TB SSD
  • Another 16GB of RAM
  • Can i use the power supply and cooling of my old PC?

 Budget is between 1.300 and 1.500€

Is there a Way to do tis or am i compleatly out of my boundries?

I hope i didn´t miss something.

Thanks for helping

My retailer does not have the 

Asus PRIME X570-P ATX AM4 Motherboard

Can i use the 

Gigabyte X570 Gaming X AMD X570 So.AM4 Dual Channel DDR ATX

as well?

After a quick internet research, it looks like it is a good budget x570 board. Some points of criticism may be the following:

  • Brown PCB despite on every picture looking blackish
  • Only four fan headers and none on the lower half of the board
  • No USB 3.1 Gen2 and no USB type c header and a total of six USB ports
  • Sound is not the best by using Realteks ALC887 codec
  • No standard RGB, but RGB led headers on the motherboard

Overall for me those points would not matter as much. I always use a headset over USB and if you really want to have a great music listening experience than an extra sound card is still an option. If you are ingesting 4k footage a lot not having a USB 3.1 Gen 2 may be a deal breaker, but the bottleneck could be somewhere else than the USB standard.

Those are just my two cents. Hope that helps

For more than the Tomahawk Max it's pretty bad since they are really on par on the OC side of things.
