    A 5800X might be the better option depending on the software. You might not benefit from having 12 cores.
     
    I wouldn't use the WD Blue SN550 for a workstation build. The lack of DRAM will hurt performance.
     
    An MSI B550-A PRO would be a cheaper option for the motherboard.

    I would probably take the Asus board then. The Tomahawk is solid as well, but not sure it is worth paying an extra 60 Euros just to have pcie gen 4.

    There is a big difference in VRM quality. The Asus B450-F is pretty mediocre in that department. Go with the Tomahawk or even the B550-A PRO if you want something cheaper.

    Here are a couple of options depending on whether you want AMD or Intel. There is also the i9 10900 if you wanted more cores. Not sure what sort of gpu you would require, but they are pretty hard to get hold of at the minute. If you can get by with onboard graphics then that would limit you to Intel, as AMD don't have any 8 core+ with graphics.

    An i9 11900K doesn't make any sense. There are better options if you want 8 cores. I would suggest either the R7 5800X or i7 11700 and B560 if you have to go Intel. Just make sure to get something with a good VRM i.e Gigabyte B560M Aorus Pro.
     
    As already mentioned though, your current system is still pretty decent. If it was me I would wait for prices to return to some normality.

    In that case you can go with any cpu. 
     
    If you want Intel I wouldn't bother with a 'K' variant. The 11700 and a B560 board is cheaper and will give pretty much the same performance. The i5 11400/11500 are the best value Intel cpu's though if you are just gaming.
     
    This would save around $160 on the cpu/board and cooler. I would also take the WD Blue SN550 over the Sabrent Q.

    The stock Intel cooler is terrible. He will definitely want an aftermarket one. Something like an Arctic Freezer 34 shouldn't be that much.

    A 1050 ti is a lot faster (x2) than the 4650G according to the vid below. The 1050 is about 15% - 20% slower on average than the ti version on the 2nd link.

    The B550 chipset doesn't support that cpu. Your options are B450, X470 or X570.

    lee32uk got a reaction from Fried-chicken in AMD build   
    I would suggest a different board, as the Asus B450-F is pretty average. The MSI B450-A PRO MAX or B450 Tomahawk MAX II etc are better if going with B450.
     
    If you are just gaming then I would go with the WD Blue SN550 SSD over the Intel 660p.
     
    The boxed retail version of the 5600X is cheaper. If you want a better cooler than the stock one, then something like an Arctic Freezer 34 is around 20 Euros.
     
    That case looks like it has very limited airflow. Maybe look at ones with a mesh front.
     
    As above you will need a gpu if going with a Ryzen 5000 cpu. If you don't intend on buying one for a while then maybe consider Intel as also suggested above. The 11400 or 11500 would be my suggestion with a B560 board. Make sure you get one with a decent VRM/Heatsink.

    lee32uk got a reaction from Forleb in is it good value?   
    I totally agree that the HP is crap, but you also need to be careful buying any prebuild as they sometimes cheap out on certain components. The fact they don't list the parts used would be a red flag to me. The op would need to message the seller and ask for a breakdown of parts before committing to anything.

    lee32uk got a reaction from savey in Will this cpu cooler fit in my case & motherbord ?   
    Two in the front and one at the rear.
     
    With 5 fans I would put three at the front, and 2 at the back for exhaust (Rear and roof)

    The SX8200 Pro should be avoided seeing as Adata did a bait and switch. The PNY CS3030 looks ok but there are probably other options at that pricepoint.

    The X570 Gaming Edge is one of the worst performers in terms of VRM temps, so you should avoid it at all costs. The B550 version on the other hand is very good and that has a solid VRM. The B550 Tomahawk in the build above is also fine. If you are going X570 on MSI then the Tomahawk, Ace or Unify are the ones to buy.

    You can save money on the motherboard. Both of those X570 ones are overkill. A good B550 board like the MSI B550 Gaming Edge will easily handle a 16 core cpu.

    As mentioned above you are spending too much money on the case and fans.
     
    The R5 5600X is a much better option for 1080p gaming.
     
    That Sabrent Rocket SSD is terrible value for money. You can get a 1TB NVMe like the WD Blue SN550 for $109.

    That is not true at all. If you know anything about psu's then you would know that Enermax were a very capable oem when they were making psu's. In any case CWT make them these days, the same oem that makes the Corsair RMx, RMi and HXi and other units for various brands.
