Advice on Upgrading

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I built my own PC but not am not very hardware savvy.  I'm looking for advice on first steps to upgrade for better gaming! For example, better GPU first, or CPU, or more ram, new CPU+Motherboard+Ram etc...

 

Set up:

RAM: G.Skill 16 GB Ripjaws DDR4 3200 MHz

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 6-Core 3.40 GHz

GPU: GeForce RTX 2060

Motherboard: B450 Tomahawk

 

Games:

Overwatch

Apex

Valorant

 

Thank you in advance for any advice!

i dont think upgrading right now is a good idea as those literally is one of the newest right now. if upgrades is what you plan to do in your current setup, then its

 

CPU >GPU 

 

then if the need arises (games become more ram intensive) then is the time to upgrade the ram. 

 

better option though is to just wait till the next releases ( next gen GPU ( RTX 3000? RX 6000?) or next gen CPU (Zen 3? 10nm intel (LOL no))


Im with the mentaility of "IF IM NOT SURE IF ITS ENOUGH COOLING, GO OVERKILL"

 

CURRENT PC SPECS    

CPU             Ryzen 5 3600 (Formerly Ryzen 3 1200)

GPU             : ASUS RX 580 Dual OC (Formerly ASUS GTX 1060 but it got corroded for some odd reasons)

GPU COOOER      : ID Cooling Frostflow 120 VGA (Stock cooler overheats even when undervolted :()

MOBO            : MSI B350m Bazooka

MEMORY          Team Group Elite TUF DDR4 3200 Mhz CL 16
STORAGE         : Seagate Baracudda 1TB and Kingston SSD
PSU             : Thermaltake Lite power 550W (Gonna change soon as i dont trust this)
CASE            : Rakk Anyag Frost
CPU COOLER      : ID-Cooling SE 207
CASE FANS       : Mix of ID cooling fans, Corsair fans and Rakk Ounos (planned change to ID Cooling)
DISPLAY         : SpectrePro XTNS24 144hz Curved VA panel
MOUSE           : Logitech G502 Hero
KEYBOARD        : Rakk Lam Ang

HEADSET         : Plantronics RIG 500HD

 

and a whole lot of LED everywhere(behind the monitor, behind the desk, behind the shelf of the PC mount and inside the case)

Personally I wouldn't upgrade that system.  The only way to get a noticeable difference would be to spend mega dollars on a GPU or CPU (even then  CPU is not likely to be that noticeable).


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

Thank you for the responses!

My goal was to get a solid mid-tier PC. 

I thought there might have been serious inefficiencies in my build but seems like I've done decently. 

 

Thanks again for the input.
