Upgrading.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've been talking with a few people on here about upgrading my CPU, Motherboard and RAM.
I'm looking to stay around $350 USish.

I've been thinking of something similar to:

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor  ($174.15 @ Walmart) 
Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE ATX AM4 Motherboard  ($109.99 @ B&H) 
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory  ($82.37 @ Newegg) 
Total: $366.51
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Any suggestions around this price point?  I'll be saving and trying to upgrade my GPU in a month or so.

The RAM is a great choice, the aorus elite i just purchased the x570 version of, and the ryzen provides the best value at the mid end CPU's. Couldn't change your mind if i wanted to.


CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X   COOLER: Wraith Prism   GPU: RX 5700XT Mech OC    MOBO:  Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite  

RAM: 32Gb G.Skill Trident Z Neo 3600 CL 16   STORAGE: Viper Gen 4 1Tb SSD VP4100 +Viper NVME SSD 512Gb + Seagate 1 TB HDD 7200rpm

the aorus is not as good as "msi b450 tomahawk max" or "msi b450 A-pro max" but it can manage

Looks like I'll be waiting for the new CPUs and motherboards to drop in late May/June.
