Recommendations for updating the PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


Hi, I'm looking for tips to upgrade my pc, I currently have an i7 kaby lake and an rxt 2070 on Fractal r6. I am looking for recommendations to change everything on my pc except the video card. I'm from Argentina and my budget is $900. I use the pc both for playing games and for office tasks and I use several browsers at the same time. Attached is an assembly that I did in pcpartpicker as a test. The online store where I always buy is called MercadoLibre Argentina.

All recommendations are welcome. Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards.

Thank you very much for the answer. I attach links to the store where I can buy, prices in my country are a little distorted. 1 dollar = 100 Argentinean pesos.

No need to wait, Boggy nailed it.  It's what I would suggest as well.

 

Tho I need to ask, do you NEED to upgrade now?  Are you not getting some performance you want?  You can wait for next gen stuff possibly.

I would be looking at a 3700X if going from a 4 core i7. With a $900 budget you could afford that. If it was me though I would wait for B550 boards in June as that will give you more choice. Or wait until Ryzen 4000 comes out and do the upgrade then.


Winter is Coming.

Probably looking at 2021 for consumer DDR5 en masse...

Are you not getting some performance you want? 

I'm playing Eternal Magic and I don't exceed 59/60 fps. I think those fps are pretty bad in terms of performance.
