    trevb0t reacted to Brok3n But who cares? in just a pc needing to be built   
    Well, Firstly, I remembred it as $2500
    Secondly, the first person to respond came up with a $2500 list lol

    LoL welcome to the forum @bitpoke, where one wrong build suggestion will have you constantly called out even though everyone can clearly see you've already been corrected not once, not twice but probably 5 or 6 times already
     
    @CashTheOriginal The build @Fasauceome came up with is probably one of the best you can do now (though, just because they moved up to numbering it as the 5000 series, doesn't mean it's 5th gen You don't magically skip the 4th iteration), I'd really wait until Black Friday. It's just around the corner, and you'll be able to fit some better parts in there for the same budget. I also recommend buying a used GPU, like a 1070, 580 etc, and grabbing one of the upcoming new GPUs when they come out. Alternatively, you could off all together like @Brok3n But who cares? suggested, if you have something you're currently using.

    Mate, Just- Pl- What's going on here? Why are you spending so much on storage? Why the 2700x? Why a $26 case and a $40 PSU?

    the case and PSU are quite terrible, and that's a really vast amount of storage and ram, much more than is needed. You could get a current gen CPU instead, since OP specified 144Hz gaming. Also a newer motherboard to accept 5th gen CPUs once they come out.

    @CashTheOriginal you might want a Ryzen 5 5600X when it comes out, for an additional $100 it's quite the performance boost. You could also save some money if you like, with this case

    I've built in it a lot and it's very economical, with lots of space and good airflow.

    60 to 55 occasional isn't stutter, it's standard for FPS to fluctuate during operation, and 5 FPS is well within normal. It would be literally unnoticeable, especially on a standard 60hz monitor. 
     
    If you are seeing actual stuttering lag, there area bunch of reasons that could be, and simple ways to diagnose.
     
    What do you have in mind for an upgrade budget?

    It's fine for that chip. If you don't plan on upgrading for a while it won't really matter. Yes, there are better boards, but for that price it's hard to beat.
    In the future don't use USD unless you're buying in the US. It's irrelevant to you.

    well ultimately its not up to me. But my friend hasnt caught the pc bug yet so its harder to justify an overall price increase of only like 5-10% for a massive boost in performance. Although when i built mine microcenter had Ryzen 2600xs on sale for only 99$ and that was a steal.

    You should consider that 3600 though. Usually Microcenter gives a MOBO discount with a CPU purchase. You could come away with solid gear for a small amount more than you were initially thinking.

    Really though, a used RX 580 is ~$100. Put the difference into a 16GB RAM kit, and a bigger SSD.

    As stated above it will be the nVidia RTX series cards.
    As for compatibility, you can pair any CPU with any GPU. There are things like bottlenecks that could be a problem with a weak CPU vs a super powerful GPU, but Zen 2 would pair with anything on the market currently.

    Only Nvidia rtx cards support ray tracing. Yes, Nvidia works with ryzen CPUs.
     
    edit: and not many games support it yet but it is slowly becoming more popular. Also, enabling ray tracing severely lowers the FPS you get in game.

    It's a method of rendering dynamic lighting and the way it effects the the materials it hits (and how it bounces and reflects to other units.) It's pretty physically accurate to the way real light works, and (when integrated correctly) it makes video games look a little extra awesome. It is particularly taxing calculation, since it is a point density system that then bounces to other objects, creating more and more point density sources.
     
    Either way it's a nifty tech that isn't heavily utilized right now, but will be nice to have in coming years. I see no reason to buy a 1080Ti if it's similarly priced to the 2070 Super.

    nVidia's RTX 3000 series has been postponed as far as I know, but if factories can begin production again at any point we should have a new line of GPUs on the horizon (both from nVidia and AMD.) What that means is current gen prices will drop significantly in the used market. I'm personally holding off on a GPU upgrade, since the RTX 2070 Super is right where I'd like to be, and I'm anticipating a $200+ savings in the next year on those units pending RTX 3000 series launching.
