 Share

I currently have a fx 6350 on a asus m5a97 motherboard but the bottleneck is so bad  i cant even tell I have a gtx 1060 6gb. What cpu/motherboard would you recommend. Not too expesnive and also Id be using it for casual gameplay homework and maybe a little bit of editing.

This is a touch over budget but is good. To save some money, check out the used market, with a deal on a Ryzen 5 1400 or something you might have some decent value. There are some for about $80 right now.

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

Sorry I had to go over, 250 isn't really enough. You need new RAM as your old modules will not be compatible (they are DDR3).

What do ya'll think about a core i5 9400f instead of a ryzen 5 1600, there is a good deal near me and from what I can see on the bottleneck calculator the bottleneck would be minimal. Thanks

Bottleneck calculator is unfortunately quite useless. Also, it's not the first gen 1600, it's the 1600AF, the 12nm refresh, so it performs about equally to a 2600.

 

The 9400F is has a much more restricted upgrade path, so it's not recommended.

Save up a little and get:

 

MSI B450 Tomahawk Max

G-Skill Ripjaws V 3200 MHZ Ram 16 GB

Ryzen 5 3600 CPU )if editing is a factor, this is the best value choice right now - also for gaming).

 

Remember: One who buys cheap, buys twice....so make it right the first time. 4th gen Ryzen CPUs will run on the B450 board as well - the Tomahawk is the best B450 board on thr market right now.

 

If you upgrade like this (and please do yourself a favour and get NO ASrock Board - bad UEFI, not as reliable as other brands in the sub 200 bucks category) - the GPU will be your next bottleneck - but this is OK. You can upgrade the GPU later.

 

Which PSU do you use? Can you please name make and model?
