Depends on what resolution, refresh rate, and settings.

 

You'll most likely have a bottleneck with a 1080, but a 1070 might be slightly better.

I wouldn't recommend using that CPU with either card, personally.

You might struggle a little bit at 144Hz, I would try to get a better CPU if possible.

look for a used i7 6700/7700 on ebay, if it's more expensive than if the case's I/O connectors are split apart then a ryzen 2600+B450 board will work too.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Heatsink: Gelid Phantom Black GPU: Palit RTX 3060 Ti Dual RAM: Corsair DDR4 2x8GB 3000Mhz mobo: Asus X570-P case: Fractal Design Define C PSU: Superflower Leadex Gold 650W

8gb is fine for now, if you still have some cash left then sure.

your ram is fine; I would focus on upgrading mobo and cpu first. You can probably stick with 8gb till late 2019

Does the B450 board have a displayport ?

My brother's PC has a 7400 and a gtx 970, that PC will bottleneck in many games such as Overwatch that need some CPU resources. He can play on high settings (which is like medium for Overwatch, there's also ultra and epic) and avoid stuttering, but frame stutters happen in games like For Honor at high details as well. While I don't feel it's a particularly terrible combo (old mid range CPU with last gen high end CPU), I feel like a better CPU like a 6700 would be ideal.

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

 

Primary PC:

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

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You can't use the video port of your motherboard when you want to use a graphics card. Also, Ryzen has no integrated graphics.

i7-6700. Used is cheaper and CPUs are pretty reliable when used.

According to PCP, 6700k is cheaper than 6700, has higher stock clocks too:

Is a Ryzen 5 2600 good enough?

There's absolutely nothing wrong with used parts. Every CPU and graphics card I've got from eBay has been perfect.

i have had bad luck with motherboards used. i got one with socket damage, and another one that has some other problem that it's very unstable.... so not everything you can buy used is perfect. 

 

i have had good luck with cpu's and gpu's though.

Yeah a CPU is hard to break
