Need advice on Aaron's build discussion

Galion
 Share

Aaron is my classmate we're planning his build so far we've come up with the basics but can't decide on his cpu and gpu since there are a few options. 

Cpu options :

Ryzen R5 2600 -$161.99(new) 

Ryzen R7 1700 - $165.00 (second hand) 

Ryzen R7 1700x - $183.00 (second hand) 

 We were thinking of going with the 2600 but we went to the second chance pc shop and saw the 1700 it's a first gen but it's got 8 cores, and it's not much difference in price. 

So we can't decide, I remember some of the members saying the first gen aren't as stable as the second 

As for gpu we can't decide between the 1060 or 1070 or the new rx 590, he intends to get a ultra-wide 1080p 75hrz, playing AAA games at med to high settings till he can afford a better gpu. 

Thanks for advice before hand

Is the ultrawide an lg 29 inch by any chance with freesync?

 

If he is thinking of swapping GPU not long after and rx 580 is good enough. 

 

Also check used market for rx vega 56 and 64 and other high end cards

Check what bundle specials are available on the Ryzen 2600 + motherboard. Microcenter has the Ryzen 2600 for $150 and a further $30 off when you buy it with an AM4 motherboard.

Well you can still save a few bucks on the CPU if you shop around a bit. If he's just gaming the 8 cores of the 1700/1700x won't give much benefit. The higher base & boost clock of the 2600 would be better.

Get whichever of the ones you got, but id avoid the 1060 as the rx 580 is usually cheaper and just as good. Plus it has freesync

Will the RX 580 have any problems driving the monitor at med to high around 80fps?

No problem, though it will depend on the title offcourse, but you shouldnt worry about switching to low settings
