Pc upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): $1500-2000 AUD

Country: Australia (Tasmania)

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mainly gaming (League of Legends, Fallout 4, Civilization VI), and office work as well.

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): 

Existing computer, some recently updated, others not so much

Processor:              AMD Ryzen 3 3200G with Radeon Vega Graphics 3.6Ghz

Graphics Card:      NVIDIA GeForce GT 640

Motherboard:         Gigabyte A320M-S2H V2

RAM:                      8GB (1 stick)

Power Supply:       Corsair CX600

Optical Drive:         LG CH12NS30

Hard Drive/s:          1x 256 SSD, 1x 500GB HDD, 1x TB HDD

 

I will be needing a new case, but currently no other peripherals, will be looking in to dual monitors but not in this budget.

 

Currently i get some over heating issues and have been considering liquid cooled, thoughts?

 

If there's any required information I've missed let me know and I will edit.

 

TIA

Thank you very much,


Any thoughts on an All-in-One liquid cooling vs air cooling? worth it? waste of time/money?

You might get a better GPU for the rest of your budget like a 2070S or even 2080.

5700XT performs at 5700xt levels for $100usd cheaper.

@gloop I don't understand why the same GPU shouldn't peform in the same range as itself...

The more expensive models are maybe just overvlocked, just a little performance jump, and quieter.

Yes, but it is $100usd less, which is $100uss which could go to a 1tb ssd or a better case.

Wait, I’m an idiot. I meant it performs at 2070s levels for cheaper.

Just joking... But a 2080S costs about 400$ more with was better performance. And it fits OPs budget.
