Your motherboard is great. Throw a ryzen 5 3600 in there (after maybe a BIOS update or two) and whatever GPU you can afford.

 

Unfortunately, you did not list your power supply. When doing so, please about saying "80+ bronze" and stuff like that.


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

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

650V mate

 

In the UK, the voltage should be 230 volts, not 650.

 

What specific power supply do you have?

Size??

Whatever size you feel like you need for your OS and most played games.

I'd suggest looking for either of the following models: Sabrent Rocket, ADATA SX8200 Pro, HP EX950, Samsung 970 Evo, Silicon Power A80, WD SN750.

Certain power supplies lack protections sufficient for high TDP graphics cards, and other parts.

Poor advice could literally melt down, fry, or even catch fire to components in your PC.

He's trying to ask which unit you have -- not just the wattage -- so we don't give you bad advice.

It's not like a great unit by any means, but probably good enough for now.

Maybe on the next round of upgrades, a new PSU will be in order, once this one has had several years of use.

 

If you are gaming at 1080p, the 1060 6GB is still solid enough that you're not hurting for a new GPU.

I agree that an SSD is necessary. I straight up wouldn't build without one at any budget these days.

I would pick up a 240-500gb boot drive. Sata SSD is just fine, unless you're a heavy content creator.

From there, an R5 3600 (gaming, budget, some workload) or 3700X (gaming and heavier workload) would be a good upgrade path.

Based on the ebay market, you could probably get a pretty good amount back if you sell the 1500X.
