This or that

The rules are simple. Two cores go into the ring. One comes out. It’s the 80$ amd Fx 8350 vs the $130 amd ryzen 5 1400. The 8350 would be nice cause I wouldn’t have to replace a motherboard and ram, and could concentrate more on gpus, as I would have to spend all my money on stuff that will even RUN a ryzen. So is it worth splurging for the ryzen??

I am what you call “budget gamer”

No point spending money on a shitty FX chip. AM4 is thriving right now and will for a fair while longer.

 This fx chip is decent for what I’m doing, and I really don’t want to spend $230 just for a entry level ryzen

Or you could put your 80$ towards the mid tier ryzen chip.

 

It's just not justifiable for 80$.

Is that from Newegg? Get one off eBay instead.

Finding a used Ryzen 5 1400, a single dimm of ddr4, and a used am4 motherboard off eBay will prove to be a lot less than $230 and also a lot more powerful than rusty old FX

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

Never get a new FX chip

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

FX will bottleneck in certain titles. Battlefield, overwatch, etc. Games that, when maxed out or high details, like to lean on the CPU.

Yeah. If you sell your old mobo for 20, your old fx chip for 20, your old ram for 40, look for a used b350 board, used r5 1400 and 2x4 ddr4 for under 150$

I don’t play very demanding games, the must demanding game I probably have is Minecraft/ dota 2. So it should be fine

Absolutely worth it. The Ryzen 5 will leave the FX in the dust. It's really worth the extra money.
