ooh so it is good enough to support not to high depending games etc, but what i usuallly do is game but have my schoolwork open. I just need to be sure to play games like COD but have my autocad or live lessons open on another screen for my next 5-8 years of studies xp

Well i would get a 5800X and if you can 32gb 3600mhz ram but thats just "the cherry on top". But if you can gat 3600mhz ram too. It boosts preformance

Budget (including currency): 0 Euro - 600 Euro

Country: Belguim

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: General gaming like cold war, CSGO, photoshop etc rendering also 3d building is autocad etc.

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): 
My build concludes atm :
Intel I5 - 7600 (Which is the main problem atm I think)
Motherboard Z270 - A
16 GB of Vengeance or something 
Cooler is a NZXT Kraken Double fan with rgb 
Somewhere around 750 - 1000 Watss so that shouldnt need an upgrade

GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8 GB
Storage is atm 500 GB SSD ( Have an external for schoolwork, photos, etc )
3 monitors all 60 Hz

 

Can someone give me examples of which CPU i need to buy for a better performance in games because main reason is that CPU is always against 100 percent while playing what results in lagg sometimes.

Well if you can get a 5600x and a b550 mobo and maybe some 3600mhz ram (idk ur ram speed) than you can upgrade your cpu later on

Any Help is appricated! Please correct me if I´m wrong!

Sorry for grammer/spelling mistakes, but english is not my native language (it´s german in case you were curious) *expand to see builds*

The 5600X is the Ryzen 5 5600X. With b550 mobo, i mean a B550 Chipset Motherboard

Is it easier for me/ cheaper to switch to AMD from intel if i have to buy new motherboard and CPU instead of ust a new CPU from intel ?

It would be better for the futuer because it would be easyer for you to upgrade in the fututere. The best cpu you can get for this platform is the i7 7700k and its just a 4 core 8 thread CPU. If you want you can invest a little more, buy yourself a B550 MOBO and a 5600X, because in the future you could get somthing fancier without having to change the mobo

So the best AMD cpus for consumers and "gamers" is the Ryzen 5000 series. It is preatty new and its out of stock every where. Its becasue bots are buying them and reselling them on sites like ebay for more. If youre lucky you can catch one. The prices of these are: R5 5600X 300$ AND R7 5800X 450$ If you can find on of these for this price, buy it. Theyre both good the R7 is obv. better. Both CPUs reqire a B550 OR X570 Mobo. 400 series will be supported too but the bios update is not yet out.(B550 and X570 need one too bu theyre already availeble for download)

Yes, the Ryzen 5 5600X is the latest CPU that AMD has released. (like 2 weeks old)

The problem with Intel, is that you have to upgrade your MOBO every other generation of CPU. 

AMD made a commitment 5 years ago to keep the AM4 socket on it's MOBOs. that 5 year end is this year 2020. 

My thought is that the next generation of Ryzen CPUs (6000 series) will be a different socket. Which means the B550 and X570 MOBO chipsets are the last in this line. 

 

If you are OK with that (and MANY of us are fine with it) then get an AMD cpu and MOBO.

 

It depends on how much you want to spend, and what features you want on your MOBO.

Well if you have the budget than sure you can buy it, but if you wont use it i wouldnt recommand, I would get the MSI B550 Tomahawk its the best board for around 200$ if you can get the MSI X570 tomahawk its a bit better

As stated above, there is more performance the higher you go. However the question is how MUCH can you spend!!!

I personally wouldn't go above an R7. But I am also ok with not having BLEEDING edge hardware that I spent a fortune on. 

 

I upgrade my main system (CPU, Memory, MOBO) about every 8 years or so.

AM5 probably wont come out for long because its kind of AMDs marketing to use the same socket thats why people prefer AMD to intel

Well i would get a 5800X and if you can 32gb 3600mhz ram but thats just "the cherry on top". But if you can gat 3600mhz ram too. It boosts preformance

I woudnt wait for that long 4-5 i would say, 

Eh, I am old. I also haven't been playing anything demanding for awhile. 

 

The whole reason I upgraded is because my daughter said playing Overwatch had single digit frame rates. 

 

I bought a used GTX 1070 for $200 last year. But my CPU was holding that WAY BACK!

My 2020 Upgrade: CPU: Ryzen 5 3600; MB: MSI X570 Tomohawk WiFi; Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB 3600 MHz; Case: Lian Li Lancool II Mesh Performance; PSU: Corsair RM550X 80+ Gold; Storage: WD Blue 500GB SSD; Seagate 4TB Compute HDD; Monitor: GIGABYTE G34WQC 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Monitor, 3440 x 1440 VA 1500R Display

 

Previous Components Still Using: GPU: MSI GTX 1070 (bought Used); Storage: WD 3TB Green HDD,WD 1TB Black HDD, SanDisk SSD PLUS 240GB

Previous Monitor I want to VESA mount: LG 29UB55-B 29" Ultrawide 1080p 60Hz IPS

Well i would get a 5800X and if you can 32gb 3600mhz ram but thats just "the cherry on top". But if you can gat 3600mhz ram too. It boosts preformance

Perfect ill look for that ive saved up quite a bit and since corona everything is online, so thank you !! :))
