  1. Wait for new CPUs and GPUs, you’re friend will get a lot more value for that price then.
  2. Waiting is the best option right now, as new CPUs and GPUs are right around the corner. But if you need to buy parts soon then this is my advice: You can get a 3600mhz CL16 ram kit for less, and should be better. I would expect a NVME ssd at that price like the Crucial P1. Also a 2080 super is overkill for 1080p gaming. Otherwise looks good. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $283.55 @ B&H Mot
  3. Ram isn’t the issue here it’s graphics horsepower. Even a 2080ti can’t do 4K 60 on maxed out settings.
  4. As I said in my previous post if he’s looking for best performance he should get a 5700XT, but if he wants the extra features that the 2000 series gpus have then a 2060/2060S should fit in the budget. If your looking for a sata ssd then a MX500, Western Digital Blue, or Team Group GX2 should be good. Whatever is reasonably priced.

  6. It isn’t that much better at multithreaded tasks and is no longer manufactured so prices for it are typically very expensive.
  7. Why would you have to change processors, the 3600 is really good, it’s better than older ryzen 7s in single threaded applications and still does well in multithreaded ones. Unless OP is doing cpu intensive tasks like CAD, video editing, or streaming then the 3600 won’t struggle at all.
  8. It’s definitely worth waiting a couple months. There’s new AMD CPUs releasing in the next few months. As well as high end gpus from Radeon and Nvidia. Stock and price is pretty bad right now so that’s something which will probably get better. So you should wait but if you need a pc then this is the feedback I have to offer. You can save a few bucks by going with a good air cooler like the Dark Rock Pro 4 or a NH-D15. The motherboard is more than your cpu, and it’s quite unnecessary. You can get a solid B550 or X570 motherboard for under $200. The power supply is very overpriced, stock
  9. You should wait for the new cpus and gpus, but if I aren’t then this is what I would change: 32gb ram is unecessary for gaming 3600 can run all games without struggling, so that should be fine the 2070 super performs slightly better and has raytracing, and DLSS 2.0 but you should get the rx5700xt if it’s significantly cheaper The ROG Strix B550-f gaming is better than the MSI MPG B550 boards
  10. This is what I would recommend: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $264.00 @ Newegg Australia Motherboard MSI B450M-A PRO MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $116.00 @ Skycomp Technology Memory G.Skill Aegis 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory $95.70 @ Newegg Australia Storage Samsung 860 QVO 1
  11. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $279.30 @ Amazon CPU Cooler be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 50.5 CFM CPU Cooler $89.90 @ B&H Motherboard Gigabyte B550M AORUS PRO Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $129.00 @ Best Buy Memory G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory $1
  12. I think the used market is your best bet. Try to get a 1600af or 2600, decent X470 or B450 mobo, 16gb ram (try to get at least 3000 MHz), and a 1070 or 1080.
  13. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/bwCnDx I left a decent amount left for taxes.
  14. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xtmmsk this should perform better, for less.
