Need help choosing the core components of my build.

Go to solution Solved by OfficialTechSpace,

Far more competent and complete build. Leaves viable headroom for future upgrades, and doesn't overlook simple things like case fans.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/kMH978

 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600 ($179.99 @ Amazon) 

CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock 2 ($49.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI B550-A PRO ($133.97 @ Amazon) 
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P360A ($89.99 @ Amazon) 
Power Supply: MSI MPG A-GF 750 W 80+ Gold ($99.99 @ Amazon) 
Case Fans: 2x Phanteks PH-F120SK ($13.99 each @ Amazon) 

Total: $581.91

 

Avoid AMD cards for the time being, they're a fair margin behind Nvidia this generation. They're playing catch-up, and don't pack the same suite of features. The 5600 is faster than the 12400 by A LOT in some titles, and a 3070 should be easy enough to squeeze into the budget. That way you gain access to tools like Nvidia Broadcast; which includes RTX Voice, and fairly advanced webcam background remover. Not to mention, the first-gen hardware accelerated raytracing on AMD hardware is TERRIBLE by comparison.

Budget (including currency): $800 dollars

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming + watching videos and browsing, mostly competitive FPS games.

 

- My question is as follows: Do I get the i5 10400f + RTX 3070, or do I go with the i5 12400f + RTX 3060ti? I'm probably gonna be using this for as long as 3 or 2 years. Thanks for the help in advance.

 

With regards: F/

Thanks for the feedback

 

On that note, I already have storage and RAM and I'm buying a used GPU on ebay, whether it is RX 6700 XT, 3060ti, 3070. But I don't know what CPU+GPU would give me the most out of my money. I don't know if R5 5600 + RX 6700 XT with SAM and some OC on the GPU would be better than the i5 12400f + RTX 3060ti or the i5 10400f + RTX 3070.

 

Those 3 are my main target, I just can't make up my mind on which one would be better.

Thanks for the suggestion, this clears my head a lot.
