Gaming PC upgrade help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone!


I am running a kinda aged gaming PC and was wondering which parts I could still use in an "up-to-date" system. My goal is to be able to enjoy games like ARK, Hunt: Showdown, RE:3 and maybe even upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 on high(est) gfx-settings with a suitable FPS-count. I am also using a 144Hz Benq Monitor.

This is my current setup:

 

  •     CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
  •     GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  •     RAM: 4*4GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance (CML8GX3M2A1600C9)
  •     Mainboard: ASRock Z77 Pro 3
  •     SSD: SAMSUNG SSD 830 Series


I'm planning to spend 300-500 € . Maybe a bit more if highly recommended. ;) p

Thank you very much in advance and best regards!

The SSD is probably the only thing you can salvage for those games.

 

You're coming from such an old platform, you will probably need to just build a whole new system


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / LG 22MK400H-B 1920x1080 @ 75Hz

Might honest be better trying to sell the 1060 and get something really good. Cyberpunk recommends a 1070. So maybe a 1070, or 2070 depending on the price. The higher the graphics in a game, the more I feel vram is used.

With those specs I would upgrade the CPU, motherboard, and Ram. What region in Europe do you live in? Also what power supply do you have?

 

I'd recommend an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU, B450 motherboard, and a 16GB of 3200MHz CL16 RAM.
