So in anticipation of Ryzen 3000, I sold my R7 1700 cpu, leaving me with a "crappy" PC that I pieced together as a stop-gap.
I don't game at all I have no time or interest. Even if I force myself to play a popular game, I just get bored within 15 minutes and uninstall it. Keep in mind I used to be super addicted playing 10 hours a day. Maybe I just grew out of it.
On the Ryzen PC I was doing mainly photo editing on Photoshop CC about 3-4 hours every other day. Specs: R7 1700 no OC B350 mobo 2x8gb 2933 mhz ddr4 gtx 1070 256 ssd
Everything on this PC was fast, no lag at all doing anything.
Now I've been using this "crap" PC for a few days and I've come to the realization that I don't need a fast PC.
Specs of "crap" PC: celeron 3900 2.8ghz dual core 2x8gb 3200mhz ddr4 z270 mobo gtx 1050 2gb 128 ssd 2tb hdd
Other than program installation, initiation, and startup taking a little longer (I'm talking just seconds) and when using Photoshop the only function that is slower than Ryzen PC is when I'm cropping and moving the entire image around its just a little choppy. THATS IT.
How I use my PC is very simplistic though so maybe that helps. No bloat software, 3-5 chrome tabs in the back and Photoshop CC in the front.
After using this PC for a few days I completely lost all desire to upgrade to Ryzen 3000....
