New Build for 1k € - New PSU?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): 1.000,- €

Country: Germany

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Witcher 3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Resident Evil 2, League of Legends, Rocket League, occasional Photo- maybe Video-Editing - Cyberpunk 2077(*)

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)


TL;DR: Still have a 500W PSU (be quiet! PURE POWER 9 CM 500W ATX24) and Case (Sharkoon VS4-V ATX); Don't want to OC; The parts below good for 1k €?


Currently running: FX-6300, MSI RX470 8GB and 16 GB - 933 MHz. be quiet! PURE POWER 9 CM 500W ATX24 PSU, Case: Sharkoon VS4-V ATX

Intended Use: 1080p 60+ FPS Gaming, occasional Photo- maybe Video-Editing.

(*) - I know we don't have specs for Cyberpunk yet, but I'm hoping to it play at Medium/Medium-Low settings.

Note on Overclocking: I don't intent to overclock. I never had any luck with it in the past. (Maybe I'm just too stupid :P)

My reasons on why picked the parts above:

  • CPU: I heard a lot of good things about it. At first I had the X-Variant but after some research, I picked the non-X because
    it was cheaper and the performance loss over the X is negligible in my eyes.
  • Cooler: Just because it keeps the CPU a bit cooler and
  • MoBo: Heard lots of good things,
  • RAM: It's 32 GB because I usually have lots of browser tabs open and when gaming I usually hit 98-100 % usage.
  • Storage: I have a 1TB HDD (Segate Baracuda 7.200 r/pm) and a Samsung Evo 250 GB SSD but it is having some problems so I need a new SSD.
    I picked the Crucial one because it is the cheapest SSD with Chache.
  • GPU: I picked a 2060 because I heard the AMD RXs are having performance issues.
  • Monitor: I have a 1080p 60Hz Monitor, but it has a 5ms (GtG) response time and I was thinking of buying a second Display anyway. I can also do without.

I did most of my research through YT. (LTT, Jayz2Cents, GamersNexus, etc.)

Kind regads

Thanks for the replies.

I will get a new PSU and maybe do away with the Display.

I thought it over and my Display is good enough for now.

dont spend that much for the tomahawk. Go with something like the MSI b450 a pro max if you cant find a good deal on the tomahawk. Dont need 32gb ram for just light editing. Use saved money to get a 5700xt

So I revised the Part list:

I included the HDD I have now, since I will keep using it for Bulk Storage and it changed the Wattage Estimate(+20 W).

So the Total comes out to: 920,10 €


1. I ditched the Display

2. I changed the Motherboard and went from 32 to 16 GB RAM.

3. Got the NVME drive because is was cheaper.

4. Got the RX 5700 XT. Went for the Gigabyte one because it had many good recommendations and is only 22,-€ more .

5. For the PSU I picked the Corsair TXM 550. It's 80+ Gold and I think 550 Watt is enough.
