I need help with my gaming rig

Do you guys have any suggestions about what I should change? I have a amd phenom ii x4 810 with a gtx 460. My water cooler was made to fit Intel sockets so I tied it down with a fishing stringer.20181222_182812.thumb.jpg.3f2469fb65637e53e9396e807f265780.jpg

I hate to say it but you are at the end of your rope mate. Everything, but keep the water cooler. You can wait few months for Ryzen 3xxx to come (if the rumors are true, or you can go for Ryzen 2xxx now because is cheaper than intel right now. You can go with Ryzen 2400G but benchmark your GPU with iGPU because it's close one)

Forgot that I got an rx 580 for Christmas 

you seem to be sitting pretty, aside from the bottleneck your CPU will present to your shiny new graphics card. Hopefully you get a ryzen system soon, new ram/motherboard and the like.

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

I currently have it overclocked to 3.12 ghz. Stock frequency was 2.5 ghz. Im able to play Destiny 2 at max settings with a solid 60fps.

wow man, that computer looks freaking amazing. ahhh, that phenom ii era.

 

Whats your monitor(s?) resolution?

 

I would wait til CES, but if you are just gaming, a ryzen 2200g or a r5 2600 on AMD or a I3 8350k will give you best performance/value (multicore vs single core) would pair well with a 580. IF you wanted right now.

 

though RAM is the reason I would advise to possibly still wait.
