Hello,

I'm going to build a new PC and i have two options 

1. MSI B450 Tomahawk + rx 590 + 16GB DDR4 3200MHz ram + R5 2600x

 

2. MSI B450 Bazooka plus + 1070ti + 8GB DDR4 3200 MHz ram + R5 2600x

 

I want to know the cons of taking the bazooka plus mother board vs tomahawk.

 

#both the builds will cost me $1,125

According to the price of my country's local market

 

Note: I'll be gaming at ultra 1080p 60fps

Note: i won't be upgrading until the next 5 years

Note: i5 8400 costs $300 in my country due to 14nm shortage

Note: I'll upgrade to 16GB ram (if needed) later on (by saving my lunch money lol)

 

I'd like to know the cons of taking bazooka over tomahawk. And also which one will suit me better for gaming only

 

Thank you.

The pros and cons of both motherboards are honestly just for looks as they are both B chipsets, but getting the 1070ti than the rx590 you will get more performance although it is only 8gb of ram, the rx590 only performs kinda just like a 1070, and a 1070ti when oc'ed is basically a 1080. 8gb is still sufficient, just upgrade later down the road, but do upgrade quick as ryzen likes dual channel speeds.

 

 

edit: A gtx1070ti doesnt need to be upgraded as quick as a rx590 (which is only a rx580 oc'ed) 

 

 

edit edit lol: you may want to consider the r5 2600 with the x, you can still overclock the 2600 to the performance of the 2600x, but only get the 2600 if the price diff is like 50 bucks or more(and spend it on ram) if its just like 10 dollars more for the 2600x then just stick with the 2600x.

I'd go with the second option as there's some room for expandability (adding more ram) and it will do better in games

You want cringe?

Spoiler

Ok! Here we go:
i7 3770 - it's not THAT bad
HP Mobo - here's where it gets even worse
6 Gb DDR3
GT 630 - yes, GT
case from the HP prebuilt
same as the PSU
LG 1360x768p - man, I want to cry
Drevo Blademaster Pro (Cherry MX Red) - I'm still waiting for my preorder:(
Logitech G305 - 90g ?
Logitech G533 - I love wireless stuff

Just in my opinion I'd say a R5 2600 with a one fan watercooling* solution is way better than the R5 2600x and costs about the same. It's much more useful to buy slower ram, but more of it. 2400Mhz is cheap and you can easily buy 16GB like in your first idea. The Motherboard only partially matters* (in my opinion) because as long as it cools down so you can overclock* the R5 2600 it's worth every penny. The 1070Ti on the other hand might be a bit overkill and a 1070 would be okay for 1080p 120Hz at Ultra or you could consider waiting for the GTX 1160/RTX 2060. 

 

* Those are all my own opinions and I haven't build something else than Ryzen/AMD in the past

I live in a place of the globe where the humidity is so high that water coolers (AIO) have a reputation of breaking and it happens very often. Considering I'm buying the PC after 2years of saving. I'd rather not risk it. And also the price difference between them is $15
