The Ryzen 7 2700x is best for your motherboard, but Ryzen 3000 will come out fairly soon, maybe wait for a Ryzen 5 3600 or something.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Unlike Intel, I know AMD likes to drop their prices. I don't know if I should pull the trigger on spending $160 USD for a 2600, do you think with the release of the new chips that it will drop? 

Sorry not trying to topic steal. 

 

@ButerPancake I would have to agree with fasauceome. Either that or a base 2700 and overclock it. What motherboard are you using?

you should be more specific with your system specs, it helps when trying to offer advice

 

anyway, with a budget that high you can go straight for the ryzen 7 2700X - same AM4 socket, make sure your power supply isn't a cheapo, low wattage one - watch out for this especially in pre-built systems. After the upgrade you should still have plenty of budget left over so consider throwing some into your ram as well, ryzen likes memory, fast especially

 

alternative is you just wait for zen2 architecture and the prices to drop as mentioned above
