Best upgrade for my rig ?

Hello,

before I start I'll list my components to give you an idea :
Ryzen 3 1200
Gtx 1050 2gb

Asrock AB350  pro4 Microatx

8gb of ram @ 3200mhz

120gb ssd and a Hard drive.

I'm looking to upgrade my cpu and ram in the next couple of days and then I'm getting the GTX2060 when it eventually comes out.

So my budget is around 260 euros or so.

I mainly game right now but I am going to use my PC for other things like programming and video editing soon since I'm studying at an IT school.

I am torn between getting a ryzen 7 1700 and a ryzen 5 2600.

The 1700 is at 190 euros and the 2600 is at 165 euros where I live.
Getting a ryzen 2700 is not option since I also want to upgrade ram aswell to 16 gb.
What do you guys think ? should the ryzen 5 2600 handle editing for a beginner easily ?

if gaming is the primary focus then the ryzen 5 2600 is best for you. it is good at editing and programming as well.

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

It's not like lesser chips can't handle editing. They just take longer. So, time is really the only aspect you're considering. If it's important it's faster, get the chip with more cores.

Don't mind waiting a little longer? Get the one with fewer cores, save the money.

Hmm I was thinking of skipping the RAM upgrade and go straight for a 7 2700..
I know minimum of 16 gb is needed for productivity but I was thinking of cutting getting over with it and getting the best I can.
