My current setup:

Ryzen 5 2600x

ASUS Prime A320M-K motherboard

16GB 3200MHz DDR4

RTX 2060

27" 144hz 1080p monitor

Your motherboard supports the 5xxx series of CPUs, so I would look at a Ryzen 5600 as your best bang/buck upgrade.  Upgrade your BIOS to most recent, then go shopping 🙂

 

The 5600 is better than the 9900K.  That PS isn't worth 600 pounds at all.  When a cheaper PC can beat it, you can't price it above said PC even if the parts originally cost more.  They hold no intrinsic value other than performance, which they are outdated as.  9900K is still decent at least, but beaten by 120 pound PCUs.

Hi all, I have found this listing on Facebook marketplace - Marketplace – I9 9900K Gaming PC! With 27 inch 240hz Samsung curved monitor and Corsair mouse and keyboard! | Facebook.

 

Is it worth buying this? I currently have a Ryzen 5 2600x and I am looking to upgrade my CPU, for in future when I plan to get a 4070/4070 Super. I know this is a dead platform, but will it still have a good few years of solid performance? The monitor will also be a good upgrade for me, as I am currently on 144hz. 

 

Thanks.

And do not worry about the 1060, I will just use the 2060 still currently in my system.

Its actually not bad for the price with the monitor and M&K included, its not great by any means, it depends mostly on the monitor though

It's dead, sorta.

 

 

But upgrading your CPU alone will be worth it over that 9900K.  What motherboard do you have?  Specs of your current system?

Damn, thank you a lot, you just saved me so much, I had no idea the A320 chipset supported the 5000 series!! Will I get the same performance from this motherboard compared to like a B550??

 

I was looking to upgrade to the Ryzen 7 5700x, is this a good idea with this motherboard? It says it is compatible but would it work just as normal?

The 5700X is a decently low-power chip, as compared to the 5800X.  I'd personally run the 5600 unless you have need for the 5700X in some fashion?

 

Personally if you need the 5700X, I would definitely try it on the A320 and see how it goes.  Can't hurt anything at all.  If you just need a 5600 for gaming... then the 320 is fine.

The only reason I would go with the 5700x is because in the UK anyway its only £20 more than the 5600, and you get a decent bit more performance, so to me it is worth it. I am staying away from the 5800x however due to the higher TDP.

Makes sense.  Get the 5700X, update your BIOS, try it out  and let us know.  There are others with a 320 board that could use the info if you go ahead with it.

 

Worst case.... you have to spend another $75-$100 on a board.  Not terrible.

Thanks so much, I didn't know I wouldn't have to upgrade my board. The main upgrade I wanted was the CPU for future upgrades (GPU, 2600x is too weak for modern GPU's). I shall update this forum if I go ahead with the upgrade. Thanks again.
