Gaming pc component upgrades

wirelessname
 Share

What do you guys recommend to upgrade when the time comes? Now the pc has a ryzen 2600, gtx 1060 6gb, 16gb ram, asus ex a320 mobo. Was planning to get a new mobo/processor bundle, intel this time though. Gtx 1060 is going to switch for the 1080 most likely.

2600 is a great processor for gaming.

 

What resolution are you playing at?

2600 is still great. and amd is going to support the socket untill 2020, so if you feel like a upgrade is needed, it's probebly the gpu most of the times. but a new amd mobo and a good cooler to overclock wouldn't hurt if you have some money left

Not only this, how many Hz is your current monitor? Your RAM is perfectly fine for the next decade. As @Slottr already mentioned, your CPU is great for gaming. Is your cooler the stock Ryzen cooler? A new B450 mobo and a better cooler would be a great start so you can overclock that CPU past 3.7-3.8 GHz your stock cooler would limit your OC to. Your GPU is fine unless you plan to game in 4k or 1440p with much higher framerates than just 60 fps.

or even a good x370 or x470, so he can do more with the zen 2 chips down the line

Very true, but they're not on sale as often(or should I say as cheap) as B450's are. There's a decent deal right now on an MSI x370 for $79.99. Just make sure to put that $20.00 towards something else on Newegg since you have to mail in just to get the $20.00 rebate.

Maybe, I just like how aesthetically pleasing they are. Plus I just like MSI. Been using my MSI B150 mobo for years without any issues.

yeah. I have one too. love it. but the 300 series for msi were just kinda unlucky for them this time. They did something horribly wrong (not sure what it was). that's probebly why they are so cheap. x470 fatal1ty is 115 bucks after rebate, that one is better imo

Well there's why right there. I'd never pay such a price for a mobo, but that's just me. $40.00-$80.00 is my personal limit. $50.00-$60.00 is the ideal price I would be paying.

Good lord, you could buy a brand new GPU for that price. Unless this $210 mobo overclocks my CPU to 6.0 GHz, it ain't happenin'.

$600 for a brand new 1070 ti? That's insane. It's $360-$380 for a 1070 ti brand new right now at Newegg. Probably at least under $300 for a brand new 1070 ti on eBay when you play your cards right.

Well, add vat and shipping and it will still be around 400 bucks. About the price they go for here rn.

No, that's without additional shipping prices. No clue what vat is.

Vat is a tax I have to pay when buying something outside of the European union. It's mostly to protect the market

Weird. You don't have to pay anything like that here. Tax maybe, but nothing else. No tax on eBay though.
