Looking for a new CPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello there. Today is my birthday today and I've decided to gift myself a new CPU as my i5-7500 doesn't cut it anymore when paired with my 2070 SUPER and 1440p 165hz display. I'm not sure what too get. I would like to future proof and be able too use my 2070 Super too it's fullest.

@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

If a design is taking too long, the design is wrong, and therefore, the design must be modified to accelerate progress. -Elon

Happy Birthday!

Like said above, pretty much the best bang for your buck cpu and motherboard combo is the 3600 with a b450 tomahawk max.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

How overkill would a 3900 be? Is it worth the wait for 4000 series?

For gaming only, very overkill. If you can wait a few months it will most likely be worth it.

If you are looking to go a bit more expensive than what the 3600 and b450 tomahawk max currently is, you could get the 4700x when it comes out and pair it will a msi mag b550 tomahawk.

I believe it is around 30-40% increase but I’m not 100% sure what the most recent leak is.

I think the latest one is 20% IPC increase. No die shrink I believe either.

I'd recommend a 3700X + B550 A-Pro! Currently, the 3700X is at a killer price ($280 compared to the original $329) and it dips even lower sometimes! 

 


Current System: Ryzen 7 3700X, 32GB DDR4 @ 3000MHz, MAG B550 Tomahawk, 1TB WD SN550 NVME, be quiet! Straight Power 11 850W, MSI RX580 Gaming X (placeholder until next-gen GPUs), NZXT H510
