One thing to bear in mind -> Previous generation Ryzen CPUs showed best value when you purchased the non XFR variants because generally they would overclock just as high as the XFR CPUs, making them pretty redundant to anyone who knew what they were buying. I find it a bit interesting that AMD has set up the Ryzen 7 lineup to only feature these XFR chips, but the upcoming Ryzen 5 linup includes both the 3600 and the 3600X.

Overall, pretty good. I'd personally recommend downgrading the CPU to a Ryzen 5 2600 instead of the X variant, the XFR boost that the X comes with is practically useless as you can overclock to that clock speed regardless. With the money you save on that, I'd highly recommend upgrading your GPU because the 1050Ti is fairly low end.

Also, you don't need bitdefender. As long as you're smart enough not to click on the "you're the 1000000th site visitor click here for free vbucks" popups, windows defender is fine.

Good luck with your build.

What kind of work do you do? If it's not intensive rendering/video work, I wouldn't recommend getting any more than 16GB of RAM as prices are extremely high atm. Besides that, your build is fine. You could potentially use the money saved from the RAM to upgrade your CPU to an i7 8700K and a slightly beefier cooler, as you already have the Z series motherboard, but that's completely up to you. Hope this helps.

No. When Khabib flew over the octagon, one of Khabib's guys went over with him and Conor landed a jab on the dude's face. Khabib's guys saw this and then flew in the ring to attack Conor for hitting their mate. Alot of videos have been clipped to cut this out. Also, would recommend watching this:

WWE is a show business. UFC is a no nonsense fight with all you've got business. It's meant to be a public show of raw skill, and that's it. If it's becoming a who can talk the most **** business, then I'm truly disappointment.

Conor was jumped from behind because he hit Khabib's guys as they jumped over the wall. It was not self defense on Conor's part. The reason why he didn't press charges was because he hit first.

This isn't even trash talking though. There's calling someone out by how bad they are, and then there's legitimate racism and insults thrown towards his family and country. They are disgusting and should not be tolerated. If you think what Conor is saying is ok then shame on you.

Pretty much as I expected. Too much of the GPU's budget is going towards those RTX cores, which really draws back the value when you look at it from a raw FPS outputting point of view. That's why I don't think these cards are mainstream GPUs, NVIDIA made a mistake of marketting them as one.

Thanks for the benchmarks (:

You can't really upgrade an all in one. Your specific model does have accessible RAM slots though, so I guess you could upgrade the RAM. It wouldn't really do anything though, the CPU and lack of GPU holds your system back too much. If you need something more powerful, consider building a new PC. Even a Pentium/GTX 1050Ti will outperform that PC.

Ahh, you don't need seperate SSDs. If you have a big enough SSD, you can partition it into multiple drives and have Ubuntu/Windows 10 on each one. If you want to run both side by side though, unfortunately the only way you can do this would be through VMs or on seperate computers. I've wanted to run Linux/Windows on seperate monitors using the same hardware but it's just not possible at this time. I'd probably say use seperate computers, Linux, as you're probably well aware of, doesn't really need stupidly high end hardware to run on. I'd recommend something like this (I'm assuming your prices are in USD):

To be honest... My predictions are that RTX will not perform as well as everyone believes in games and will ultimately either drive up the costs of Pascal cards or RTX cards will decrease in price. I've voiced my opinion on this a few times now, I believe that the RTX cards are not for mainstream gamers and their ray tracing feature, which is the sole reason why you should buy this card, will not appeal to a decent majority of the consumer market.

Besides throwing in a 1TB hard drive, not really. If you're purely gaming and nothing else, I'd probably recommend an 8th generation i5 because it beats out the Ryzen in single core performance. Otherwise, if you're a heavy multitasker/plan to stream or use your PC as a workstation, I'd take the Ryzen 5.

Visually, sure. But there is a hugely noticeable input lag difference between a game running at 200FPS and a game running at 60FPS. Battlefield 4 at a competitive level is borderline unplayable at 60FPS.

When I was like 12, I went to a family friend's house and one of them had their own gaming PC. I played halo CE on it and enjoyed it so much. Couple months later I had an AMD A8 APU based system with a whopping 4GB of RAM and a blue LED fan that I loved so much. It was pretty bad but it played Halo CE.

but you'll eventually need to upgrade to something like the Monitor I put on your new list. Otherwise, you'll be stuck gaming at 60Hz and 60fps on your TV

He won't be stuck at 60FPS. You can push as many frames as you want on 60Hz. Depending on his GPU, he could easily run games at 100FPS+. I wouldn't be surprised if his PC ran battlefield 4 at 200FPS+ (on competitive settings).

So, you'll need a Monitor that can handle those speeds. I recommend you get a 27" 1080p or 1440p resolution with 144Hz to 165Hz refresh rate with G-Sync. Some Monitors even go as high as 240Hz.

No he doesn't. I play BF4 at 60Hz with 180FPS and it's runs perfectly. The only thing a high refresh rate monitor will do is make your games feel slightly smoother at higher frame rates. At 60Hz, you will still feel a huge increase in responsiveness when your FPS passes 60.

No, the motherboard will be fine. However, the cooler is definitely overkill. In fact, the stock cooler that comes with the 2600 is pretty good. It won't even hit 75 degrees when gaming. However, if you want to overclock (which I would recommend), I'd recommend going with something like this.

Your PC is fine. The only part that would be holding it back would be your GPU. I'd recommend upgrading to something like a GTX 1080. It's well within your budget and it's honestly all you need. The only other thing I'd recommend is overclocking your CPU to squeeze a bit more performance out of it. I don't see why a 4.5GHz wouldn't be easy to achieve stable with your cooling/motherboard quality. If you need help overclocking, consider checking this out.

I would not recommend RTX to anyone at the moment. We barely know anything about these cards' performance compared to current gen. Any info that NVIDIA releases will be extremely bias and will most likely be best case scenario. Wait till independent reviewers get their hands on these cards and give us the rundown.

As pqorer said, considering you'll only be gaming, either go with an i5 8600K or a Ryzen 5 2600. No need for the Ryzen 7 as the extra cores/threads don't provide a noticable FPS increase in games. Also, your CPU cooler is quite a bit expensive. $165 for a part that provides no physical performance increase when you can achieve the same performance for under $100. Consider the coolermaster AIOs if you want a liqudi cooler. Also, why two seperate SSDs? Makes no sense... if you want seperate drives, might as well get a single bigger one and partition it, it'll be cheaper. Besides that, your build seems fairly solid. It isn't value optimized but it is fairly future proof.

I see. The i7 8700K is a CPU I'd more recommend for workstation use. If you look at the comparison, you'll note when overclocked both CPUs achieve pretty much the same single/quad core performance, which is really all that matters in games.

As for your GPU choice, I personally wouldn't recommend the Vega 64. Even the GTX 1080 beats it out in games. Overall, the build I recommended is $300 cheaper than yours and will get around 20-30FPS more when playing games.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Which CPU would be better for me in the long run. i5-8400, Ryzen 5 1600, or Ryzen 5 2600?"

  • 17 months ago

Personally, I'd spend a couple more $$ on the i5 8600. The reason why people choose Ryzen 5 over Intel is mainly its' superior multi threaded performance. Games tend to lean more on single core performance which is where Intel CPUs prevail... As you can see in the comparison between the two, the i5 beats out the Ryzen chip by 15% (which is quite a lot).... Since you're gaming at a high refresh rate, you'll be wanting the most FPS possible in games and hence the i5 is in my opinion, the best choice for you.

Has an NVMe SSD for a generally fast OS. That Pentium gold is the equivalent of a 7th generation i3. It's almost identical in performance and should be more than enough for your intended tasks.
