How do I upgrade my PC?

Toolless

Hi! Im a studnet in Sweden looking to upgrade my pc I build a good while ago. I'm using my pc to game (Cyberpunk, Valorant, ps ports and rn rdr2), I consistently use a wide variety adobe products and blender. My budget is about 1000 usd and Im not sure how to upgrade and what to keep from my current pc. The only thing I do know is that I'm for sure getting a m.2 nvme ssd 馃檪

(note that i dont need new monitors, case, keyboard, mouse, licence etc)

My current parts:聽

AMD Ryzen 5 2600

Some arctic air cooler
GTX 1080
B450 Tomeahawk聽
16 gig ram
240 gb 2.5" sata ssd
1tb hhd
650w corsair psu

You have a good motherboard and (probably) good power supply, so you can definitely go for a new graphics card and a BIOS update for a new CPU. In Sweden, your budget should easily accommodate a聽 3070 and ryzen 7 5700 X3D

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

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black聽(with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux聽- Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

How many watts do I need?聽ATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explained,聽group reg is bad

BIOS update for a new CPU, new GPU, and I would also try to add another, larger SSD since games are going to require being installed on SSDs more and more.

Corps aren't your friends. "Bottleneck calculators" are BS. Only suckers buy based on brand. It's your PC, do what makes you happy.聽 If your build meets your needs, you don't need anyone else to "rate" it for you. And talking about being part of a "master race" is cringe. Watch this space for further truths people need to hear.

Assuming the PSU isn't great, you can get something like this:

If your PSU is good, you can get something like this instead:

Without knowing which exact PSU, it's not really possible to say which to get. Corsair has a lot of 650W units, some of which are pretty good, some of which are time bombs.聽

As long as their memory is 3200MHz CL16 or better imo they should just get 16 more gb of their model, and I don鈥檛 really see the point in a PSU upgrade, the 4070 doesn鈥檛 draw聽that聽much
