yeah, but are you really going to notice that when you're GPU bound anyway?

I request AMD because currently, they're kicking *** in price to performance. Intel chips rule harder for gaming, but for the near-$100 price premium, he could've picked up a faster GPU and gained more performance instead. Something like a 1080 or maybe an RTX 2070 could've done the trick.

Also, I just realized he paid $100 for Windows 10.

Nice build! My only complaint is that your CPU+GPU combo feels imbalanced. I probably would've picked up an RX 580 for a little more and downed to a Ryzen 5 2600 (I would have kept the stock cooler too though), but that's probably the value hawk in me talking. Good job.

Hey, thank you!! Apologies for the ridiculously dirty environment, I recently cleaned out my PC like a few weeks ago when I installed the 450 BT but the rest didn't completely follow suit with it.

If this is considered an upgrade, I don't even want to know the specs of that Inspiron. Holy yikes.

I'm not trying to be rude, but...this really isn't even good for the price, you could've picked up an Athlon 200GE that would outdo that FX chip and given you a nice upgrade path on the AM4 platform.

EDIT: Just realized this was made out of spare parts. Disregard my comment!

I'd honestly say it's a better deal to get two 16GB kits than a 32GB kit personally, but that's a difference of like $40 or so if I remember right.

You could have swapped the 9600K/Z390 combo out for a 2600X/X470 combo, not paid for Windows, and bought him a larger SSD, but aside from that, it's all good.

Yeah, I was just thinking from a price to performance standpoint, since AMD's appeal is in their great value.

Was it possible to get a Vega 56 for cheaper? Those generally use much less power.

Nice build. The 8700K is still the gaming king even if it isn't exactly the best value, so if this is for mostly gaming, that'll serve you well. 32GB RAM is overkill though.

I would've picked up a Ryzen 3 2200G/B450 combo, used the stock cooler, dropped to a lower capacity SSD, and then upped the GPU to an RX 580, but aside from that, this isn't a bad build at all, price-wise.

I might just go ahead and spend more on a 5 or K7 or the Taichi then because I know people who've had voltage issues related to Ryzen Master and would rather do bios overclocking to avoid that issue. Not to mention I predict future Ryzen CPU's will overclock better.

How's the board? Been seeing weird reviews about its overclocking, with offsets instead of normal vcore and clocks and VRMs closer to that of a B350, but are those things true and would they affect my experience significantly when overclocking if I picked it over say, the X370 Taichi?

Wish you would have tested more games personally (Wildlands is really not the best benchmark, considering its iffy optimization, even The Division is a better benchmark choice imho), but this is a pretty solid build.

It should be fine for now. There will be the odd game out like Watch Dogs 2 that's thread bound no matter how fast an i5 can be clocked, but most games will do fine.

IMO you could've gotten a better deal with Ryzen - that i5 unless it's heavily overclocked WILL bottleneck the 1060 in some games (i.e: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided) while ANY i7 from 2nd gen up will be fine at stock. Otherwise, good build.

Ah, nice. Deus Ex is much more of a high-end game.

a 760 can run higher-end games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided too, although to get 60 you will have to drop settings quite a bit down, at 1080p high it's in the mid-30s.

Also definitely wait for Vega especially if you want to move to 4K. Deus Ex is ridiculously brutal on ultra and 4K.

To be fair, you're gonna need a heavy core clock OC in some cases i.e: Deus Ex.

I agree, but people expect ultra every single time and blame devs when they cant get 60 on ultra

1070 peasants lol. Not even your 1080 can max every game and get 60 at 1440p, special snowflake.

My i5 (3rd gen, equivalent to a 6400) bottlenecks my 1050 Ti at 900p in some titles, so I'd be surprised to see less of a bottleneck on this pentium with a 1060 at 1080p.

In your case if you were to upgrade the CPU, I would go with a Ryzen 5 for budget, especially if you're a stealth player like me who plays a lot of Deus Ex and some Hitman. 4 threads won't really cut it in those titles, I own a quad-core i5 (not the fastest but it's one of the higher-end Ivy Bridge parts) and I find myself struggling to get full GPU utilization even on a GTX 1050 Ti...although this is at 900p so at 1080p a 970/1060 would be doing the same thing.

Usually I get 60 to 80 in Deus Ex, but due to my CPU's limitations there are areas that drop me to about 45.

idk man I've tried locked Deus Ex to 30 and it didn't feel very good, also MSAA is insanely demanding.

Medium and 900p is where I'd probably go for Mankind Divided if I were you. I can run it at high and 900p at 60 to 80 fps, with a few drops into the 40s due to high CPU usage on a 1050 Ti. As for the RX 470, I'm not sure how much it is in CAD, but I've seen it go as low as $120 USD after a mail-in rebate with a free copy of Doom.

At high 1080p Mankind Divided runs at around 35 fps, which is quite a bit below what I'd consider enjoyable. A 470 at those same settings which you can get for a similar price these days if you know where to look, runs it in the mid 50s. Wildlands, I don't even know but on my 1050 Ti I got about 40 at very high, 900p in the bta.

Yeah, and with that 460 I don't expect him to play the highest-end games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Ghost Recon Wildlands :P

You could have went for 16GB but considering you went for an RX 460, it's unlikely you'd be playing high-end games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided anyway.

Add another 8GB and test out Deus Ex: Mankind Divided :)
