Need Advice [following upgrade]

Is this for a gaming focused PC?

Recommended Posts

Posted Original PosterOP

Hello, I'm upgrading my CPU to a Ryzen 7 3800x but I am using a MSI RX 590 8gb graphics card. I think it's safe to say I need a graphics card upgrade but I dont know what would be best matched for that cpu, if anyone knows or has suggestions it would be much appreciated!聽

Thanks in advance 馃憤馃徎

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聽- Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

How many watts do I need?Seasonic Focus thread,聽Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explained,聽group reg is bad

light streaming would be good with the RTX series. You could get as high as you want like what MartinKweh said.

You could save money with a Ryzen 5 3600 and put the saved money into the GPU.
