Upgrading/Remaking my Gaming PC

Hakerai
 Share

1. Budget & Location

Im from Finland and im going with around 1000€ budget, which is pretty similar when i bought my PC back in 2013.

 

The parts that im going to upgrade are:

Motherboard from ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8Z77-V LX2 (LGA1155) to ROG-STRIX-Z370-H-GAMING

Processor from Intel Core i5-3330 @ 3.00GHz Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology to Intel Coffee Lake Core i7-9700K, LGA1151 or something similar

RAM from 16,0Gt Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHz (10-10-10-27) to G.Skill 16GB (2x8GB), Ripjaws V, DDR4 3200MHz, CL16

2. Aim

Im upgaring my PC partly because it feels to be falling appart and partly for getting bit better fps for bit badly optimised games such as Blade and Soul

3. Monitors

Im using single Acer G246HL monitor and not planning to switch this time

4. Peripherals

No need

5. Why are you upgrading?

My motherboard and CPU are bit weak on now days since my PC is 5 years old and motherboards is bit lackluster when considering it supports at best DDR3

Those parts are a decent upgrade for sure. Word of warning, make sure that new board either gets a BIOS flash before it's shipped or make sure it has a way to flash the BIOS without a CPU installed as the 9700K won't run on Z370 out of the box.

PC Specs - AMD Ryzen 5 5600X MSI B550M Mortar 16GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3600 @ CL15 - RX5700XT 660p 1TBGB & 256GB 600p Fractal Define Mini C CM V550 - Pop!_OS 20.04

Looks good, I would just get a z390 board instead.

Make sure to quote me or tag me when responding to me, or I might not know you replied! Examples:

Buy whatever product is best for you, not what product is "best" for the market.

 

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.
