Budget build help!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys.

I hope you can help me. I want to upgrade my motherboard and processor. My budget is 1.200£ (i'm in the UK)

All i need is gaming at high settings.

My other parts:

GPU: GTX 1050ti

RAM: HyperX Fury 32GB DDR4

PSU: CORSAIR 750W CS SERIES MODULAR 80 PLUS GOLD

Case: Cooler Master H500M

you should be able to fit a midrange cpu, mobo, and gpu into your budget easily. like a 3600, b450, and 5700xt would be well within budget and enough for games at 1080p-1440p


topics i need help on:

Spoiler

 

 

my "oops i bought intel right before zen 3 releases" build

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (placeholder)

GPU: Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme (also placeholder), deshroud w/ generic 1200rpm 120mm fans x2, stock bios 130% power, no voltage offset: +70 core +400 mem 

Memory: 2x16gb GSkill Trident Z RGB 3600C16, 14-15-30-288@1.45v

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S w/ white chromax bling
OS Drive: Samsung PM981 1tb (OEM 970 Evo)

Storage Drive: XPG SX8200 Pro 2tb

Backup Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB

PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W w/ black/white Cablemod extensions
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Dark (to be replaced with a good case shortly)

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

ryzen 7 2700x isnt that good with gaming, go for a ryzen 5 3600 or a ryzen 7 3700x and maybe a midrange b550 motherboard. and for a cpu? you could go for a 5700XT or a 2070 super as they're quite in the budget range now.

that might go over your budget, a ryzen 9 3900xt is like 400+ quid. For the mobo you could go for a b450 tomahawk or a b550 aorus elite.

the 2700x is perfectly fine for games, not worth the upgrade to anything other than a 10600k. the motherboard is fine too, no cpu for games will stress it. and any performance increase would be woefully less than a gpu upgrade

3900XT

the XT chips are overpriced. Wait for the new AMD gpu and CPU anouncements. 1.200 quid is not a low budget btw.


I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

 

My beautiful, but not that powerful, main PC:

My new PC I'm saving for:

  • NZXT H1 Matte Black
    • Comes with a 650W NZXT PSU
    • NZXT AIO
  • Ryzen 5 3600
  • MSI B450i GAMING PLUS AC
  • XPG ADATA 2800Mhz
  • RX480 untill I have more for a 2060 or 2070
  • 2tb Sabrent Rocket Q PCIE gen 3 NVME SSD
  • Samsung 470 128GB SATA SSD

Hi guys. About my budget build i think i choose Ryzen 5 3600x and ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming.

Maybe RTX 2070 and some SSD for Windows.

What do you think?

You've gotten some generally bad advice in this thread. If you already have a 2700X, the 3600X isn't going to be much of an upgrade and frankly it isn't worth upgrading your CPU at all because the 2700X is absolutely fine for gaming. Plow all your cash into the GPU, that is where you are going to see the massive gains over your 1050 ti. With 1200 pounds you should go for a RTX 3080 (might be challenging right now given they are out of stock after the recent launch) and a very nice monitor to go with it (1440p 144 hz 1ms response IPS panel would be my recommendation).

Thank you. How about i go with 2080ti since 3080 is out od stock? Is it going to be compatible with my mobo and all?

Do you need this immediately? I wouldn't do that, certainly not at the regular price of $1200+. I'd wait a couple weeks and try and get a 3080 for retail of about $700-$800. 3080 is quite a bit faster than the 2080 ti.

 

Yes it should be compatible with your motherboard. (what is your motherboard incidentally?)

My motherboard is ASRock B450 pro4. And I think i go with this one: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/msi-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-gaming-trio-11264mb-gddr6-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-34t-ms.html

The price is ok so i can buy SSD and even if i go a little bit over budget thats ok.

What do you think?
