Need help with my CPU/GPU Pick




I am building a new PC for Gaming/Streaming.

My budget is around 1.1k euros (1.2k max), without a HDD with my files, im going to have that one from my current PC. And and a old 1050 ti for a 2nd monitor.

(Prices are a little more higher in Germany than in US)


So, i decided to go with Ryzen build.


1. Option 

CPU and GPU: A cheaper CPU and better GPU (Ryzen 5 2600x with GTX 1070 ti mini)




2. Option

CPU and GPU: Better CPU and cheaper GPU (Ryzen 7 2700x with 1060 6gb)


I will run a 2nd monitor too ad mentioned above.


I want to play CS, World of Tanks,PUBG,GTA on ultra @ 1080p 


I would like to stream WoT and CS without any problems.


My part picker so far:  https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/NpyhBb

Have a nice day!

Similar to @Herman Mcpootis list, but with changes


changed CPU because games don;t need so many cores, I don;t want to pay for those.


An aftermarket air cooler, because while the stock one is "good enough", it's not really quiet when the CPU is overclocked.


500GB SSD because there's budget, and extra storage space never hurts. You can put games you want to load in fast (csgo online matches for example) into the SSD.


Vega 56 supports Freesync monitors which are cheaper, while Nvidia's Gsync monitors are usually expensive enough to keep buyers away, especially when the target is only 1080p 144Hz. In just performance, Vega will be a bit slower in games you play because they just run better on NVidia cards in general. However there are other games that prefer AMD cards, like Doom, Ashes of the Benchmark, Hitman and so on.


Changed the case because I have no idea how many of the cheaper case perform, how well they are built etc, so I just picked whatever I know that's cheap and average.

You should go for your second option Ryzen 7 2700X and the GTX 1060. The GPU or CPU wouldn’t be bottlenecked.

Since you will be doing streaming aswell you need some extra CPU power
