Need help making sure PC upgrades will be completely compatible

Bitzs
 Share

Budget (including currency): 750 USD

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Star Citizen, flight simulator 2020 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I went over my upgrades myself and everything should be compatible but I just want someone else to look at it so that i dont spend my budget then realise i need a new power supplie/mobo 

my current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Cy6wf9

My build after upgrades: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PNdkK4

 

The things Im not sure about is the motherboard not being high enough quality for the 3700x and the powersupply not being able to handle the wattage of the upgrade leading to bsod's.

You need a new power supply and motherboard. The B450M-A is a horrible board with crap VRMs. It won't handle a 3700X. The Power Supply is also VERY poor quality and I would not use it with such hardware.

I would say it looks good, although I would advise getting a better ssd, as that one is quit small, and for wattage, you look fine, the 2070 super has a 215w tdp, and the 3700x has a 65w tdp, although I would consider getting something more efficient, considering those are fairly high end components. I would also consider maybe downgrading the gpu, and cpu, as those are quite high end for star citizen, and flight simulator 2020, if you want something a bit less expensive.

@Bitzs Iagree to this. Mobo is to weak to handle that cpu and that psu is utter garbage. The SSD is kinda questionable in terms of longevity.

 

for ram I really recommend going at least 3200mhz cl16. It will greatly benefit the overall system performance compared to those  2666mhz sticks.

That board isn't great either. If you demand a cheaper one, get the ASRock B450 Pro4
