Hey all,

Currently have an intel i5-6600k, with a 1050ti, on a MSI H110M PRO-VH PLUS. After watching Linus' video on AMD's line of Ryzen chips, just want some opinions on whether or not I should swap. 

My main intention with my system is for Animation (3-D Modelling, Texturing, etc.) With games on the side. I've never changed out a motherboard or anything. So, my skillset is lacking. BUT, i'm eager to learn the ropes. Just want to hear some tips, tricks and/ or opinions from folks.

Thanks

The answer is yes. Get a Auros B550 Pro. You don't need a new ram kit but you may want 32gb. Get 3200mhz at the lowest. I would go for a Ryzen 7 5800X or 3700X if on a budget. 

Edit: 3900x may also be a good choice as it's pretty cheap now.

Any upgrade on your system will have big benefits. For price to performance, right now AMD is clearly the winner. If you're planning on building a whole new system, I would recommend waiting a couple of weeks or so and going with AMD's next gen CPUs which are claimed to be faster than the top Intel CPUs in every single task, even gaming (which Intel has had a hold on for over a decade now). 

 

As for building said PC, there are plenty of in-depth and easy to follow tutorials on YouTube. Even the LinusTechTips YouTube channel has a few first-person POV builds that you can follow along with.

The best upgrade on your current setup you can get is an i7-7700K, which is unfortunately very expensive on the used market. 

 

AMD offers 6 cores for $200, and cheap motherboards for you to get. Even low end b550 motherboards will sustain a ryzen 5 easily, you can check the motherboard tier list if you want to compare products. Also plenty of solid B450 motherboards, if you want to save even more money. The B450M Pro4 is an excellent choice for ryzen 5 or ryzen 7 CPUs if you don't need RGB flair and tons of fans.

 

Sell your current parts online and recoup cost or even make a profit. A 6600K still somehow sells for quite the price on eBay, and if you sell local on FB market or something, you get the whole profit to yourself.

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

That's a pretty clickbait question. Tbh problem with the system is not Intel, it's just a bit old and performance is no longer its strength (unlike back when it's new which it would be considered a half-decent gaming rig).

 

As for what to buy, it depends on your budget.

Aw ok, thanks for that.

As for a B550 compared to a B450, what's the real difference? Cause, price wise, it's quite a hike. I'm open to spending that bit extra though, i just want to know what benefits i'm getting.

But yeah the Ryzen CPUs have really got my attention now, and i'll have to budget for whatever one i want. 

Thanks for the help regardless.
