Upgrading my old unit

ZixteE
 Share

So I already bought some parts for my upgrade

 

PSU: Seasonic M12  620W(full modular)

RAM: 1 Hyper X DDR4 (2400mHz 8gb)

MOBO: (depends on what cpu I will buy)

SOFTWARES will be use: Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, (1080p60ps, 1080p or 720p60fs, 720p) and OBS for streaming.

 

 

 

 

Right now I'm struggling which CPU should I use. Should I go to (Intel i5 8400 or Ryzen 5 1600)

So..the main purpose of my upgrade is to stream, (2017 to 2018 play AAA games) and rendering.

My monitor is cheap  $130  23.5"  resolution is 1080 60hz

 

Can you guys give me the pros and cons of the two cpu?

We're missing a lot of info here...

What is your budget?

How many watts is that PSU?

How much RAM did you get?

What games do you want to play?

What resolution?

What refresh rate?
