What CPU?

UBatcha
 Share

Location: UK but ill take advice from anyone of course

Monitors: 1 but planning to (In the far future) to upgrade to 2

GPU: RX 580 (Can be swayed, but i'm going for AMD for Freesync)

 

For reference I play stuff like BO4/Fallout 76 at least for upcoming games

 

Right after research I (Originally) made the decision to buy the R5 2600X which would cost me around £195. However I was told the I5 8600K would be better for me which would cost me around £240, is it worth the extra price though or is this all overkill and should I get cheaper CPU in general?

https://gyazo.com/cdbccdab8cc3699ba031995ee2fd4c1c This is the "Full build", I already have a 250GB SSD. I can be swayed with most of the build tbh but thats my original draft

The 2700x is dropping on price soon so you could either wait or get the 2600x. even the 1700x is fine

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

Just get the 2600X. It's a little bit faster than the 1700X, and the 2700X is about £100 more, so it's not worth it.

Around £1000 but that includes peripherals and oh yeah forgot.. Phanteks Enthoo Pro was my original choice and again willing to be swayed if there's a reason I shouldn't get that

Enthoo Pro is totally fine

 

This is what I came up with at 900 pounds

If you want to lower cost further, drop the memory to a 2x4gb kit.

Yeah that's what I'll probably do if not then the 2600, now just need to decide if I should wait for Black Friday

Can I ask why the Vega56 though if the 1070TI is the same price?

Why just 1 stick of RAM?  Ryzen likes dual channel as well as high speed RAM. Do a 2x4GB config instead.

 

Or are you planning to add 8GB later?

Yeah If I feel like 1 stick of 8GB is too little then i'll add another otherwise I feel like 8GB should be enough for now

Because Freesync? You're pretty much getting Freesync for free in this case.
