hello

i want to upgrade my cpu on my pc and need help on choosing a good cpu and maybe mobo(I am thinking going amd)

my correct build:

intel I-7600k

gtx 1070 8gb

2x8 ram ddr4 2400

asus prime z-270k

1080p

 

my budget is about 600 dollar

will most likely buy from amazon as it is mostly chipper them buying it locally(I am from israel)

I mostly use my pc for game but most games I play are more cpu intensive like football manger, total war and bannerlord and sometimes tomb raider and divinity original sin 2 and various rpg

i prefer a quiet build and i don't overclock

i am thinking going amd 3700x

I would STRONGLY suggest waiting for Zen 3 in 3-4 months. Save up more and get a 4700X and a GPU upgrade to go along with it.

I’d try to find a b450/X470 board and a Ryzen 5 1600AF, Zen3 won’t be here til Q4 this year if that. And if you decide you need more CPU you can just drop in a 4700X/4800X when Zen3 does drop.

 

A 6c/12t Ryzen chip will be more than enough for gaming, however if you plan to stream then that’s when I’d consider an 8c chip.

 

If you need PCI-E 4.0, your only real option is X570 and a Zen2 CPU in which case I’d recommend a 3600 or 3700X.

are you sure it will be out by then because my cpu is not exactly handling the games


 

there is little that is sure right now.  For $600 you can upgrade your cpu OR your gpu.  Not both.  The question is on which are you being limited?

Where are you getting 3 - 4 months from ? There is no release date for Ryzen 4000 yet.

I heard “Holliday” 2020.  It’s all rumors.  I’m guessing Christmas shopping season 2020 which would be early to mid q4, but 2021 wouldn’t surprise me at all

Sounds like you want to upgrade cpu then.   The 1070 is a decent card.  Certainly fast enough to last you until the new crop arrives.  I’m more fond of 8/16 than 6/12 atm.  There are 6/12s out like the 3600 with pretty good single thread though.  The only bugbear is Scarlett/ps5 appear to be 7/14, (8/16-1/2 reserved for the OS) so I’m wondering if 8/16 isn’t the better part of valor even if the single thread isn’t stupendous.  I dunno though.

2021 is out of the question - you'll most likely have them on store shelves before November
