Help required in my first PC build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello! Last month I've started thinking about building new PC and after some time I think I got the perfect combination, BUT I am unsure about the CPU choice. Should I take Ryzen 5 2600 instead? Also I plan to expand to 2 monitors in the next few years. Help will be appreciated, thx.

Get a better power supply. EVGA BR models are mediocre. Get a Corsair CX550 or a Be Quiet S. Power 11 as per the PSU tier list

currently the ASRock B450M/AC is much cheaper

the GTX 1650 super has the same performance, buy the cheaper of the two

 

Also, don't build a PC without an SSD, you'll regret it.


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 - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (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)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Also swap the HDD to an SSD or at least a decent WD Blue model. The Seagate Barracuda is meh

The 1650 is notably slower and only as fast as a 570. The 580 is about 15-20% faster than a 1650

Can you find a 5500xt near that price range? i think it is close to that price with practically a small bump in performance. Plus, that GDDR6 can help a lot.

Yes, you should go for a ryzen 5 2600. The 1600x uses zen, while the the 2600 uses zen+. The 2600 has 12nm chips that are faster and more power efficient then 14nm ones on the 1600x. the 2600 is better in every way, and its $119 on amazon rn.

hence my recommendation of the super. Although I believe the 1650 falls behind the RX 570.
