Need help for a dd3 build.

I have some PNY DD3 Ram, 16gb in total. 8gbx2

Is it still a viable option for AAA gaming? If so, I would really appreciate tips and parts suggestions for a build. my budget is 1300-1400$

 I do lean towards a AMD but I'm open to Intel if the price is right.

All the sticks of Ram say is 8gb, DD3 DIMM, K DOJKH-T PO215641

I tried that PC building website, but I don't trust myself for picking compatible parts even though it states that they are. This is kind of my last resort as the folk of reddit were not too helpful.

Thanks.

Hee :)

 

That's a nice budget for a PC build.

Can I ask you why you want to recycle your PNY RAM?

This kind of forces you to buy older platforms. even though they are packed with performance, you might want to consider selling the RAM and getting a complete new build.

You sure you don't want to upgrade to ddr4? Going with ddr3 means that you will need an older cpu and motherboard. And with that budget you can certainly get a pretty damn good system.

It's not really recycled. It was a gift. I wanted to save a bit by just using the given ram. I also have the operating system available if that helps any...

where might I be able to sell the RAM and how may I proceed with a better build according to my budget?

Keep the ram for display and get you a better system, cause DDR4 is the new mainstream.

No point going for a haswell now just because you have the ram, you’d benefit much more going for a ddr4 build.

they're abit too old for a modern platform, kabylake is the best that'll support ddr3 if you can find the mobo with ddr3 slots. sell the ram sticks and use the money for the build instead. whats your country? need os/monitor/peripherals?

Im good with monitor and OS but keyboard and mouse will be needed too. 

I live in the US.  Any suggestions for a build of that budget?
