Future proof (5 years?) gaming build. Budget ~1500 EUR

 Share

The last couple of weeks i have been making a pc build list for my first build. And i need some feedback for the list i currently have.

 

I am located in the Netherlands. I will use it for gaming and the screen i will be using will be qhd/4k at 120+ hz

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Boxed € 175,-

ASRock Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4 € 91,85

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Super Gaming X Trio € 812,43

Corsair Carbide 275R Tempered Glass black € 84,70

G.Skill Ripjaws V F4-3200C16D-16GVKB € 79,22

Corsair RM750 (2019) € 90,99

Samsung 970 EVO 1TB € 181,-

€ 1.515,19

 

Components i will add that i already have:
Kingston sns8152s3/256gg5 (boot drive win 10)
Samsung 860 EVO 256gb (cache for hdd)
WD green 2tb hdd

 

I would like to stick with amd cpu, nvidia gpu and samsung ssd as those are my preferred brands for those components.

 

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks!

Looking pretty smart there, make sure the mobo box says Ryzen 3000 ready so you don't need to update BIOS for the CPU to work.

Ryzen 5 3600x - Asus Strix B450-F - Asus ROG RTX 2060S Strix AD - Fury Beast 3200 2x16 GB DDR4 - Phanteks P400S - Corsair RM 650x - BeQuiet! Dark Rock 4 - 2x Kingston A2000 NVMe 1TB SSD (RAID 0) - 2x Samsung QVO 1TB SSD (RAID 0) - Seagate Barracuda 3TB

If future proofing is a concern then I would change that MB to an x470 or even x570. These are more likely to get a BIOS updated to support future generations of chips, and better support higher core counts, and in the case of x570 support pcie4, meaning that down the road your upgrade options will be a lot more open. 

 

Also Ryzen really likes fast ram. I'd swap that 3200 CL16 you have there for either 3200 CL14 or 3600 CL16.

If you want future proof you definitely want an X570 board so you can use PCIE-4.0 SSDs. Also that gpu won't be very future proof considering the XBox Series X uses a gpu whose officially released specs indicate it should be a little more powerful than an RTX 2080. Though maybe not more powerful than a good aftermarket 2080. CPU is a little weak too for the longer term, being 6C/12T considering both PS5 and XSX use 8C/16T Ryzen 2 chips at respectable clockspeeds (3.5 GHz for PS5 and 3.7 GHz for XSX if I remember right). Though Ryzen 3600 is a great gaming cpu right now.
