Yeah, bought a 1050 ti and want to upgrade cpu, I can also buy a mobo for it too. Want to be able to play games and some light video editing.  Thanks for everything

 

Update: found out about the i5-4690k, I know it's discontinued and all, but is it still reliable?

 

Ye thanks for all the help

"Whatever" isn't a budget.

 

So, I'll just say 2700x, X470 motherboard, 750w PSU and 32GB of RAM.

You can't use a 4690k with your current motherboard, and like @dizmo said, Ryzen is a good upgrade. 

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

I was thinking about the ryzen 5 2600 paired with the 1050 ti, is that good enough?
