A gamer that like a bit of multitasking is feeling that his CPU is getting older and older :)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): 1500 USD

 

Country: Argentina (But I can use pcpartpicker)

 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: From 2d gaming to top triple A games that demands a good GPU. Gaming, but not streaming nor editing or something like that.

 

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): 

My actual pc: i5 4670k

Hyper 212 (not the evo, the really old one)

Gskill ddr3 2x8 1600 cas 9

EVGA 970 SSC

A 120 gb SSD, 1 TB 7.2k hard disk.

NZXT 550w HALE 82 v2

NZXT Phantom 410

A standard 1080p 60 hz 23" monitor @ evga 970 hdmi , and an old one 22" but 1680*1050 dvi/vga @ igpu 

 

I'm thinking about upgrading the monitors maybe at some near future (at least one to a 27" 1440p 144 hz), but not now because it gets out of my budget.

 

The attached image is what I thought could be fine. Planning to do a little OC like I saw on GamersNexus videos.

 

-Memory at 1.45v. On the memory support list at that Motherboard it is listed, so I don't know if everything is fine althought Comet Lake 1.35v reccomended maximum.

 

-Should I need a PSU upgrade too?

 

-I would really like noctua D15 Chroma Black but it seem's to be out of stock everywhere in USA.

 

Feel free to make another build or change anything, I'm open to advice.

 

Thanks in advance and have a good day.

I'd go for a ryzen 3600x and use the money you spared to get a better graphics card - or just save it since a 2070s is more than adequate for 1080p 60.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Ok thanks, and what about the memory at 1.45v, it is bad? and psu?

1.45 is standard voltage for DDR4 so no problem. With that said it may be better to get a slower kit with better timings, e.g. 3600MHz CL16, since not all motherboards support 4000MHz+ memory very well. You also don't need a dedicated cooler since the stock one included with a 3600x should be fine.
