Can I pair a Gtx 1660 super with a ryzen 3700x will it bottleneck?

it really depends on the performance target

 

but I will say, you can pair a more expensive GPU with a less expensive CPU and generally get better performance, if this is for a gaming PC.

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 G2 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 threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

make sure to quote us so we can see your responses

 

since there is no such thing as future proof, you must plan for the performance that you want currently. The Ryzen 5 3600X also has practically identical performance to the 3600, so you're better off saving money with that CPU instead and getting a nice powerful GPU. The best part about AM4 motherboards is that you can upgrade a lot, so if for some reason you do need 8 or 12 cores in the future for gaming, you can easily toss one in there.
