Build Upgrade Advice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey Guys 


I was hoping some of you guys could help me with some advice, I built my PC in December 2017


Intel i5 8600k

Asus ROG Strix 1070ti

16GB 3000MHz Corsair DDR4 Vengeance

Asus ROG Strix Z370-F 1511 MOBO

250gb Samsung VNME-SSD

2TB WD Black HD


I want to upgrade but I'm very much out of the loop in terms of parts as I used to be. My plan is to go: 

Intel Core i7 10700K

Asus ROG Strix 3070

ASUS Z490 ROG STRIX Z490-F Motherboard

32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz


The question I have to you knowledgeable bunch is, Do I go 10th Gen Intel and get a new MOBO for the 1200 Socket or stick with the 1151 Socket and go 9th Gen intel?

Any input you guys have will be very useful, like I said. I'm very much out of the loop on hardware

Also, no "Get AMD" "AMD is better value" ect... I like intel, simple as that, sorry AMD guys

9900k probably cheaper than 10700k+motherboard

though, not sure if the strix can handle the 9900k


do you need 32gb ram?

and dont fixate on the strix model, it might be bad for all we know

wait for reviews

Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries




I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general




Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite


Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares


Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend


Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)


Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones


Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

That's a fairly recent and fairly high-end build. Why do you already want to upgrade?
