Ryzen workstation build help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): $1000-$1500

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mostly for work, running 2-3 monitors all day with multiple applications.  Would also like to be able to handle some light gaming, but not a priority. 

 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

 

Price/performance is most important to me, but also wanting to have nice aesthetics with some RGB thrown in, to have the custom look. 

Definitely want to go AMD Ryzen , but i am open to any suggestions. Thanks for any help /advice  

 

I havent built anything in about 10 years, so definitely not up on all the new tech, but have attempted a start below:

That actually looks like a good build.

I would go with the x variant for the processor, but that's just me

If you want to get best price-to-performance, i would go with radeon rx gpus

Here are some good keyboards and mice-

If you want wireless, go with logitech (but it is quite a bit more expensive)

What kind of workstation do you need, are you just dealing with word documents and spreadsheets or are you doing video editing? That alone will be the deciding factor in a cpu. If the former then the 3600 is more that adequate, if the latter then you may want to consider a 3700X/3900X as more cores would be beneficial in that scenario, for GPU i’d really spend a few extra dollars and get a 1660 Super, its not that much more and yet its about 10-15% faster across the board on average.


Quote me or @TwilightRavens if you want me to see your reply.

Ran it at 1230MHz/1750MHz on the core and memory respectively for 4 of those years and it still works to this day... drivers pending."

I am not doing much video editing, i mostly do tons of browser tabs as well as multiple applications running across 2-3 monitors.   Lots of information being constantly updated i need to pull real time.  Really appreciate your input!

Then really as many cores as you can afford, but really you should go with a 3700X, 3800X if you want slightly better boost clocks. 32GB of RAM should be fine but depending on just how much stuff you may want to try for 64GB, but that won’t be as important as at least 8 cores. 3900X if you can squeeze that into the budget, I have one and I love it.

What for? They can just enable PBO and it will boost to the 3600x speeds.

Avoid Razer for any peripherals except the Huntsman TE and the Viper Mini.

 

Don't get Logitech for keyboards, the have non replaceable keycaps due to having a custom keyswitch stem. Their mice are fine, pretty good wireless technology,

 

For that price, get something like a Ducky One 2 TKL and a G305.

Guys, did you not realize he hasn't picked a motherboard?

 

You can pick your motherboard from this tierlist here.

Although, you may want to wait for the B550 board, which will be released in the 16th of June, for easier upgrades to the 4000 series.

He didn’t ask for one in the op, once decided on a cpu you should buy around that.

True, I did not bother to select motherboard yet as I was still on the fence about which CPU would be best, i just wanted to set up a basic list to hopefully get started in the right direction, i do think based on everyones responses so far I think i would be better off going with a slightly better CPU.  I also wanted to ensure the system has good WiFi so that was a factor for selecting motherboard as well ( or purchasing separately if necessary )

The psu I listed is available from newegg.com for U.S. $99.99 plus shipping. It is vastly superior to a CXM. The provided link shows it in stock.

 

The memory I suggested is also showing in stock at newegg.com

Also if you don’t need or plan to use PCI-E 4.0, you can step down to a B450/X470 and probably save some money, just be sure to look at the mobo tier list. No gpu’s on the market currently max out even Gen 3, only deciding factor would be for a gen 4 nvme.

Unfortunately on my end the psu is on "back order"  on new egg but yes, you are able to order it , just unsure of when it would be in stock. The motherboard , i am having trouble finding wifi units at fair pricing, which are in stock.   Thank you

Thank you very much for the information :) , i was originally leaning towards the b450 but proving difficult to find an available option with wifi at a price lower than the 570

definitely an option, can save about $30 going with the MSI B450 and good wifi card.   rather than the 570 with wifi

Yeah, the X570 board with the best wifi you can buy is the X570 Taichi, but that’s also a flagship board and over $300. Not sure about the wifi on any others but either a pci-e card or a usb wifi card should be sufficient.
