thats a pretty badass bday present!

i have a genuine question tho, and not necessarily aimed at OP. Why do i see so many builds using the ryzen APU with a graphics card as well? is there a benefit to it? i understand builds that start with it and add a gpu later, but if you're buying it all at once would it not be better to grab a 2600 instead? (or a 1600 if its the R3 apu)

questions aside. congrats! im sure he'll remember building it fondly for the rest of his life.


edit: fair points all around! so if its the 2200 it makes perfect sense for best performance at price point. however if its a 2400 then you might as well have gotten a 2600 especially with them being 149 at walmart and amazon right now = https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_yW0yCbK60C89B

This builds totals up to approximately $475 before taxes and rebates. This will handle a moderate amount of AutoCAD, coding, virtualization, and rendering. The system runs on a six-core processor with SMT. The build also comes with an appropriate mid-tier GPU. It meets the 4GB VRAM requirement for the AutoCAD application as well as DX11 and DX12 support. Also, a 500GB HP NVMe SSD was also included for quick boot, load, save, and transfer times while only costing $45. The motherboard is also a great B450 motherboard, with space for possible overclocking or boosting. 16GB of RAM clocked at 3000MHz is also included for a better AutoCAD experience. The CX650W is a reputable power supply from Corsair. It is not modular, but its quality is above average for this price point. Finally, to seal everything off, the Masterbox Lite 3.1 was chosen for the case. This case has decent aesthetics and efficient airflow for a sub-$50 mATX case. Do note that this takes advantage of the Newegg Black Friday sales, so prices may change. If you need a new build list close to the date of purchase, one can be provided.

Laptop Option: https://www.newegg.com/black-msi-gl-series-gl65-9sc-004-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834155299?Item=34-155-299&Tpk=34-155-299&cm_sp=2019-_-BlackFriday-_-Eflyer-_-34-155-299

This is $100 over budget per unit, however, it gives the systems more portability. The MSI Laptop will not have the same degree of performance as the tower systems, but will still meet or exceed requirements for AutoCAD and other cyber and design related tasks.

This HP Prebuilt is the best I can come up with near $500/unit.


This is similar to the DIY build, just 8GB instead of 16GB of RAM. (You can easily find an extra 8GB stick for like $30.)

Hope everything goes well.

u/TechnicallyNerd · 23 pointsr/hardware

Forget about the i5 for $20 more, at $160, you can go for the Ryzen 5 2600 for a mere $6 more.

Unless you don't need a GPU at all or you do need a GPU but you just need GT 1030 level graphics, the Ryzen 5 2600 is the way to go in my opinion.

u/Crashboy96 · 20 pointsr/buildapcsales

Same exact price on Amazon, would definitely rather buy it there even if it has taxes.

u/Freyja-Lawson · 13 pointsr/intel

I would like to second some of the other people here.

Despite knowing this is the Intel subreddit, since you have to replace your motherboard anyways, you might find it worthwhile instead looking at AMD's Ryzen platform. A 2600 ($15 cheaper), 2600X (same price as the 9400f) or 3600 ($50 more) may prove a more worthwhile buy.

It would help more to know exactly what your usecase is, but, going for Ryzen should be the correct choice in the price range of that 9400f in more circumstances than the 9400f would be. Also take into account that the Ryzen CPUs are all unlocked and may be overclocked whereas only K-SKU's on Intel may be.

I hope that this gave you some more insight!

u/biscuit_taco · 9 pointsr/HomeServer

Hey p_orsk,

So glad to hear that we have another HomeLabber in our midst. I just thought I would take a minute and share with you my current build that has suited me very well. It is completely silent and power efficient, while still powerful enough to do what you want plus more. My build was also built to be small profile so this build is built around a Micro-ITX case. This build cost me $500 in the US in 2017, don't quite know what the price would be now.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler
  • Motherboard: ASUS PRIME A320M-K AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 HDMI VGA M.2 USB 3.1 Micro-ATX Motherboard
  • PSU: EVGA 430 W1, 80+ WHITE 430W
  • RAM: HyperX FURY Black 16GB Kit (2x8GB) 2133MHz DDR4

    As I said, this build should be completely silent. I went into the BIOS settings and turned it on Power-Saver mode for good measure, which makes things run a bit warmer, but keeps fan speeds down.

    I didn't list storage here, as it sounds like you got that covered. This motherboard also supports M.2 if you want to add that later.

    If I can make one suggestion, I would highly recommend getting into Virtualization. My poison of choice is Proxmox. I could really get into this, but it really helps when you are trying to expand.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to comment on this post, or shoot me a DM. I would be happy to help!

    [EDIT] This is just my experience. You will get 110 different answers from 100 different people in this world. You kinda just have to tinker to get what works for you.
u/piccolo_balcanico · 8 pointsr/buildapc

Here is a thing that a lot of people seem to be missing out. Your CPU doesn't support higher speed RAM sticks. It supports dual channel at 2667MHz MAX. So you need a CPU that can support higher speed, because AMD LOOOOOOOOOVES RAM. Your motherboard supports up to 3200 MHz OC. The second thing is that you need two exactly matching sticks in order to get the most of your dual channel.

So my suggestion if you are on a budget (because everything else you have seems good) is to do this:

  1. Change your CPU to a Ryzen 5 2600 (or 2600X) - there are a lot of great deals right now ( https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Processor-Wraith-Stealth-Cooler/dp/B07B41WS48 ). This CPU supports up to 3000MHz dual channel RAM and has better processing power than the one you have.
  2. Buy the exact same 8GB or 16GB RAM stick you already have - make sure they are exactly the same. Even though 32GB is going to be overkill at least you will get the most of your dual channel. IF you can't find anything then get a 2x8GB or 2x16GB kit @ 3000MHz.
  3. Sell the CPU and the left-over ram stick to get some money back.

    N.B. Do not add the extra RAM into your matching kit on the board. You will jeopardise dual channel.

    Good luck and don't forget to update your drivers

Hey, just letting you know that you can currently get a brand new 2600 on amazon for less than your asking price.

Also, though late, this has been posted already here, but with a different ref code.

u/Imma-little-kali · 6 pointsr/chile

A diferencia de todo los otros comentarios de acá, te recomiendo irte por un Ryzen:

  • Son mas económicos que Intel
  • Las placas madres del socket AM4 son mas económicas y tienen soporte de socket hasta el 2020 (Es decir si quieres upgradear tu proce no tienes que volver a comprar una placa madre, al menos hasta el 2020)
  • Le sacan la cresta a Intel en relación "precio/calidad" y "precio/performance" en ambitos de workload relacionadas a creación de contenido (Como AUTOCAD, REVIT, NAVISWORK, etc.)
  • Fuck intel y sus practicas monopólicas.

    ¿Que Ryzen comprar? Depende, en este momento hay varias ofertas porque van a sacar Zen 2 (Que es la arquitectura en la cual se basa Ryzen); por 500 lucas te recomiendo 2 opciones:

  • Ryzen 5 2400G, es una APU, es decir que es un procesador con gráficos integrados, con esta opción puedes ahorrarte la tarjeta de video (Con opción de comprarte una dedicada mas adelante) y ponerle mas lucas a la RAM y un buen SSD.

  • Ryzen 5 2600, lo mejor que puedes conseguir en poder de procesamiento por tus lucas, además que está en oferta. Vas a tener que desembolsar en una Tarjeta de Video eso si, y conformarte con 8GB de RAM y una SSD de 500GB maximo.

    Si te interesa cualquier de esas dos opciones te puedo armar una cotización con todas las partes (Más rato eso si, estoy redditeando trabajando)

Is this it? Does it come with the games?

This or the deal on newegg?

There's also this deal.

u/BDPeck5 · 5 pointsr/hardwareswap

I5 price is steep... Ryzen 5 2600 is cheaper and better

u/bfir3 · 5 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Thinking about this vs the 2600. I want to upgrade my gfs PC and I wonder if the $55 difference is worth it. She does lots of design work with illustrator/photoshop/indesign and plays lots of games, but she's got a 60hz monitor and isn't bothered by >60fps. Right now she's using an old FX8350 or some fx8000 series amd card and sometimes she's dropping under 30-45fps playing low-medium settings with her 1060 3gb gpu.

What do you guys think?

u/DirtyBeard443 · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler - YD2600BBAFBOX
I have the x model. It is amazing. Have mine paired with a 580. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_lNMODbRT208JV

u/Mario_119 · 5 pointsr/cemu

While the $99 Ryzen 3 1200 would get the job done just fine, it could be a bit of a bottleneck if you plan on upgrading your GPU to anything above an RX 580/GTX 1060. For a mere $65 more the Ryzen 5 2600 is a much better choice as far as performance and future proofing go. It would pair quite nicely with any GPU, and won't bottleneck pretty much anything (unless you get something ridiculous like a Titan V, perhaps). As for a motherboard, I've always went with ASUS. The ASUS Prime B350-Plus would be my choice for your price range.

u/Logloxan · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

It appears to be available on Amazon now for the same price.

u/6789JSTANG · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Eh, DDR3 is expensive for what it is, but that's if you buy it new which I wouldn't recommend for this kind of system. An Fx-8350 costs as much as a 2 Gen Ryzan 5 at this point, there really isn't much of a case for building one new. However you can usually find killer deals on second hand sites like shopgoodwill.com. Some of the machines will need repairs (most of the time a hard drives/ssd does the trick) but I've always had pretty good luck with them.

u/MBAH2017 · 4 pointsr/buildapc

The 2600 is an excellent, excellent CPU. Easily the best bang-for-the-buck processor available at the moment, at it's regular price of $170. Right now, it's available for $150.

It's also overclockable, while the 8400 is not, which puts it ahead with no contest.

A B450 motherboard is the standard option.

u/R65guy · 4 pointsr/DIY

As someone who has designed many networks for paying customers, I advise you to drop this bad idea.

It can't be done. Phone lines are not part of the Cat N system. Ethernet requires 4 twisted pairs of wires to suppress the noise and cross talk. Phone lines are simply 4 straight wires. The Ethernet connectors are wired in a specific wsy to keep the signals clean.

You would be better off installing a nice mesh wireless system. Install, configure,use & enjoy. Trying to repurpose phone lines will yield unending frustration.

If you choose to roll your own with Cat 5/6 cabele, here is the connector pinout (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=twister_B07G285RYJ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1). You should use the T568B pattern for better results. There are a number of guides to designing a proper network.

u/batmanandraven · 4 pointsr/hardwareswap

Hey just so you know, the 2600 is only $129 new with the cooler on amazon...might want to consider lowering it a bit.

u/qa3rfqwef · 4 pointsr/pcgaming

Where are you getting the price for that ryzen 2600?

It's £125 just glancing on Amazon.

u/AirCombatF22 · 3 pointsr/sffpc

I don't see any comments so I'll offer my advice. Take it with a grain of salt, as I'm always browsing r/buildapcsales and definitely more of a price/performance builder.

First of all, an $800 build with a 5700 and an SFF case and PSU is unlikely. Here's my recommendations

A Ryzen 5 3600 is like double the price of a 2600 for only 15% more speed. A 2600 is already a really solid CPU for gaming. Unless he's a hardcore gamer and streamer with a hardon for ultra settings games, I'd suggest the Ryzen 5 2600 or 2600x. On Black Friday, 2600 prices will probably drop to around $90 (they've been dropping to around $100 recently). Currently on Amazon for $118.

Really good choice in LPX RAM - that specific set actually dropped to $56 the other week and will be hopefully down again on BF.

A 5700 is fine in terms of price to performance, but if you really do want to get below your budget but still want really good performance, I'd suggest jumping on this deal asap: EVGA 1660ti for $255 on sale through Best Buy (originally $320), and you can use the first time shopping code (SHOPNEW19) for $20 off your first purchase using a google account/credit card combination you haven't used before. That effectively makes the 1660ti a $230 deal, and the 5700 (usually blowers are on sale for at best $280) performs only 30% better, sure, but you're going for a budget build, and a 1660ti can already handle anything for 1080p gaming. Even if 5700 prices drop lower on Black Friday, chances are the 1660ti will still end up being on sale for a better price/performance deal. Also should be noted that 5700's that do drop below $280 are usually blowers, and these can be very, very loud. Ultimately, check out userbenchmark, sort GPUs by value, and compare to figure out what's the best fit for you.

Not a bad SSD/HDD combination, but keep your eye out on Black Friday. Chances are that 1 TB SSDs will drop below $80.

With regards to PSU, EVGA is generally a cheaper line with still very good quality SFX PSUs. Their customer support is a lot better in my experience, but others may disagree. This 450W PSU was on sale for $69 the other day. Idk if it's your first time building, but do keep in mind to not vastly overestimate the wattage PSU you need. So many people buy 650W PSUs when they really only need to use 380W, which should only warrant buying a 450 or 550W PSU. I'd recommend this wattage calculator.

Finally, if you're really trying to do a budget build, keep an eye out on r/buildapcsales. Check early and check often. There was a sale today for a super high-end 1 TB m.2 NVME SSD that was $80, but it was sold out on Amazon in under an hour. Often times, the best deals will be sold out by the time they make it to hot. r/buildapcsales and r/sffpc are the only two subreddits I ever sort by new on lol. Again, I'm not sure how experienced you are with PC building, but make sure you're buying components of the specs that you want. There are times where I've gotten over-excited and seen a $48 RAM deal, but it turned out to be only 3000 mhz instead of 3200. Then again there have also been times where I've seen RAM prices and been like "wow, that's not even that good a deal," and then realized it was $100 for 32 GB and not 16 GB.

Afterword: Keep in mind that it's probably best to wait until Black Friday if you really want to play it safe price-wise. Don't buy everything from the same place at once if you want to save money. Buy from the credible sellers with the best prices at the best times. I've been exclusively buying from links off of r/buildapcsales and ended up with a $900 SFF build capable of all the gaming I'll need to do in college. And that's after spending $220 on a sexy SM550 case.

u/TheAnswerIsNaR · 3 pointsr/buildapc

This is good, depending what your ram speed is currently as it's not listed. But if the mobo supports a 3600mhz ram, try to find that if not 3200mhz is fine. And GPU prices will probably change once your ready to buy, so dont worry until your there.

Likely because it's $118 on Amazon right now? Might take more to entice people to buy from an individual since Amazon has an excellent return policy and free shipping as most people have Prime. Good luck!

u/gracieskysoar · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

These coupons are literally not worth it UNLESS you can't be asked to wait for online shipping or you are purchasing way above the coupon minimum.

Lets take a look at their Ryzen Line.

https://www.frys.com/product/9522092?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG 200$ for the 2600. With the promo coupon 160$

However online

The same cpu is 164$.

But here in lies the issue. Now the cpu is 160$ NOT 199. Therefore you have to buy something else in order to get the coupon.

Lets take a different item.

https://www.frys.com/product/9339760?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG the i7-8700k is 370$. With the Promo its 296$. Which is amazing! Only problem its out of stock pretty much everywhere


online its $360. So you are getting a massive discount, provided you are well above the minimum purchase for the most part.

TLDR: Coupon is only really vauable for items with a high coupon margin or if you cant be asked for shipping on low coupon margin

u/Silver_Foxxx · 2 pointsr/computers

OK. Let's say you have an FX 8350. It's possible to get a decent upgrade with a Ryzen 5 2600 @ $118.00 + an ASUS PRIME B450A/CSM @ $79.00 for less than $200.00 but DDR3 will not work with that or any newer motherboard.

You might want to up your cap by another hundred for tax and memory.

u/UnlikelyPotato · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Not that good of a deal unless you really want a non-overclockable i5 for some reason.

Total: $222.66 and you have better upgrade options.

u/UsePreparationH · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I would say the R5 2600 would probably be the best to pair with the RX 570. It is pretty cheap at $118 and will easily handle anything you throw at it with an upgrade path to the 3rd and unreleased 4th gen Ryzen CPUs due to them all being on the AM4 platform. The R5 3600 would be the next step up at $177 but I wouldn't go higher than that unless you need the extra cores from a R7 3700x or R9 3900x/3950x for productivity reasons and not gaming since an OCed 3600 will perform almost the same as the R7/R9 CPUs.

Benchmark that shows both R5 3600 and R5 2600 (which can OC to 3600x and 2600x levels easily)


Benchmark saying get a R5 3600 for any GPU under $1000 and showing similar performance to the R9 3900x. Turning on PBO and XFR2 will make the 3900x and 3600 just about equal. Grabbing some decent Micron E-Die based ram ($70-75 for 16GB) and overclock to 3733CL16 will probably add a 2-3fps over the 3200CL14 used in the review below although the 3200CL14 (samsung B-die based) will overclock better than the E-die but for $50 more but that isn't worth it to me.

It is hard to recommend anything on the Intel side unless you have a very high end card and are looking at pure gaming only where the i7 9700k or i9 9900k will perform a little better than the AMD Ryzen counterparts.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler - YD2600BBAFBOX https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_FNuNBb4XP8K7M

165$ on Amazon

u/Mandarani · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I’d second this, the Ryzen 5 2600 is at $145 on amazon right now, which seems to be ridiculously cheap...


I don’t think we have too many benchmarks yet for the 9400.

u/CowsGiveUsMilk_ · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada
Then definitely go with AMD if you're on such a budget. Something like this would be awesome for a budget build, and even go for that based on upcoming deals.

Note that you're not limited to Amazon as a vendor or those exact CPU's. That's just to give you an idea.

I am pretty new to this and only starting researching and learning under 2 months ago. That's my build so far and I probably spent around your budget if you exclude that GPU not accounting for Windows and monitor. This subreddit has been awesome for me finding deals. My build isn't done and things marked purchased with price are stuff I found through here while the rest is to be determined.

u/TJ-Wizard · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Price seems high for cpu / motherboard.

I’m from the U.K. but just quickly scanning amazon.com you could get a 2600 and b450 motherboard for around the same price. With this board you can OC and the 2600 is far far better than the 1200.

Lastly what psu are you using, like what brand is it?

u/WirelessZombie · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Appreciate it, I'll just keep replying here if that's cool. Don't mind either way about PM but I do find lurkers might appreciate some of the advice. I'm set on the 2600, and its now 185 on Amazon so that helps. I'm pretty set on the tomahawk Mobo too which I think is lowest if you have prime.

I would like to see pics of the case, I hate the one I have its so dull and bulky but not also huge fan of the "I'M A GAMER" cases, which seem overpriced regardless. One you have is nice.

I might upgrade to a 1070 in a year+, from what I can tell that still pairs nicely with a 2600 but wanted to check. and lastly I do have 16 Gb of Ram but would consider getting some that works best with the Mobo and amd, did you already have Ram or did you buy to compliment the board.

edit: also would love a quite setup, my computer makes a decent amount of noise and I use it as part of the entertainment system.

u/Pixifart · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

this would be pretty overkill for a 1060 3gb you can buy a 2600 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=ord_cart_shr?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER here for $126 should hold you off until you get a better gpu but if you want to "future-proof" a little you can buy this instead

Ryzen 5 2600 is on sale right now. Camelcamelcamel says it’s only $10 above its lowest price point on amazon.


Didn’t realize that was an AM3 motherboard. Maybe look for a CPU/MOBO bundle. Micro center has the ryzen 5 2600 for 119 and they’ll take 30 off with a motherboard

u/Marshall104 · 2 pointsr/Amd

Get a Ryzen system...you dont need a new Ryzen 3000 system you can get a 2600 and board for decent prices and still have leagues better performance than what you've got currently.

Ryzen 5 2600 119 euros https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_qEftDbHJ2VQWP

MSI b450 Tomahawk 89 euros https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07FQ9ZJD9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_qGftDbK43T99A

Both of those together are cheaper than your cheapest choices(214 euros for the gigabyte and 8350) so you should have some room for some RAM which you'll need to upgrade too.

Patriot Viper 16gb kit 69 euros https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0157UQ5A6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_4JftDbB2T3X0H

All of this bring your total to 277 euros which is only 6 euros more expensive than your other option of the asrock and the 8350.

I think it's time for the big upgrade ;)

u/FUSCN8A · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Not a bad deal. The Ryzen R5-2600 paired with a cheap B450 is probably a smarter way to go. The 2600 is on par gaming wise to the 9400f (especially overclocked) and quite a bit further ahead in in productivity. Also, you'll have an easy upgrade path to Zen 2/3 if/when needed where the 9400f is in a dying socket leaving you in a weird position of having to buy expensive second hand I7's for an upgrade. The Ryzen's extra 6 threads already help now with productivity and will likely help more in gaming long term.

Only $25.00 more..

That’s what we bought and he had a case already and I believe a 520Watt PSU

I also gave him my Asus RTX-2060 6gb. Any case or 2060 card will do the trick tho, that stuff is all about the same performance wise.

Works freaking great. I was very impressed with the performance. It ran almost as good as my 2060 did in my i5 9600k in games. I upgraded to a 2080 Super which is the only reason I gave up the 2060. And if I hadn’t got a 49 super ultra wide monitor I could have stuck with the 2060.

On a single screen it worked great

u/podboi · 1 pointr/buildapc

If the 8530k is the chip within your budget then the Ryzen 2600 is within it too, get more cores with similar single core performance with a cheaper board, and an included good quality cooler to boot. If you're working with a tight budget Ryzen is absolutely the way to go. Just more economical overall.

u/AK-Brian · 1 pointr/Amd

Look into getting a B450 motherboard (eg, ASRock B450M Pro4 for $70) and pair it with a Ryzen 5 1600 or 2600 (~$118 with cooler), and substitute the RX 5700 non-XT instead to save money there. They can be had for as low as $289 (current low price seems to be about $320) and most cards can be BIOS flashed to near XT level performance. Add 16GB of DDR4-3200 CL16 memory for $60 and you're off to the proverbial races. Build cost for CPU+MB+GPU+RAM: ~$550.

If your budget is extremely tight, you might even want to look at using an RX 580 8GB for about $180 and dialing back some detail settings. This will bring the build cost down to about $430. If you're one of the chosen few who live near a Microcenter, they have bundle discounts and lower cost in-store special pricing that could get you down to around $350.

Regardless, the X4 will not provide good performance, gaming or otherwise.

u/MisterMeowgi_ · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Understandable. Right now AMD has a much better line of cpus in terms of price to performance. Which is why he asked. I would go with a Ryzen platform over Intel atm. You'll save a lot of money, and you'll get much more for it at the mid range and high end skus. You can't go wrong with a ryzen 5 2600 or 3600. Some good boards to look at would be the Asrock B450m Pro4, the MSI B450 Tamahawk, or the Gigabyte B450 Aorus. Any of those are good choices and have plenty of features you'd probably want.

u/uradonkey003 · 1 pointr/buildapc

> what it be suitable for with the motherboard and case and will this build be suitable for future upgrading on gpu cpu?

Yes the cooler comes with an AM4 bracket for mounting, your case has enough room for a 360mm AIO to be mounted on the top or bottom of the case, IMO I would install the AIO in the top and have it running exhaust so the heat escapes out the top of the case.

> will this build be suitable for future upgrading on gpu cpu?

Totally, but if gaming is your goal and not just a side task for this PC then I would go for this CPU https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07B41WS48?tag=pcp0f-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 instead of the extra cores you get a faster processor that can utilize your CPU cooler when you OC it.

u/cycator · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Processor-Wraith-Stealth-Cooler/dp/B07B41WS48 is better than ryzen 2400g (you don't need integrated graphics)

u/Eternal_Ohm · 1 pointr/buildapc

Since it's AMD FX you'd also need new ram as it's DDR3 modern systems use DDR4 now. Due to your budget I'd recommended a Ryzen 5 2600 (around $100) a B450 Tomahawk (around $100) I'd personally recommend a Corsair RMX PSU 550 watts or more should be plenty while I could say just find the cheapest Corsair RMX as they range from 550 watt to 850 Watt with some of the higher watt one's being cheaper then the lower watt ones I'd suggest the 550 watt one for efficiency reasons most of them seem to cost around $100 (excluding the 1000 watt but that would be overkill anyway). As for ram I'd suggest some Corsair Vengeance 3200 MHz CL16

u/urchapped · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I would get this and this but everything else looks pretty solid. Also some more fans and maybe an rx580. With all of that it’ll be like $50-$100 more I believe, but it’s all worth it.

u/david_hofland · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

You might have good luck with pricing in your area, but under $500 for just three parts would be quite easy. r5 2600 + msi b450 tomahawk + Corsair 16gb 3000mhz comes out to <$300.

If you prefer 3rd gen ryzen: r5 3600 + asus tuf x570 (wifi) + same Corsair ram comes out to <$450.

u/ToonamiNights · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Power Supply

Graphics Card



Comes out to about $405. To be honest I’d recommend a new build completely. That case doesn’t have very good airflow, and I’m guessing HP has a pretty cheap motherboard in it too. But obviously you’re just trying to upgrade on a budget so this should be good. You could opt out of getting the CPU if you wanted to save some money if you wanted.

Ryzen 3k will be compatible with current AM4 boards. Buy a board with solid VRMs (like the B450 Tomahawk) and stick with a cheaper CPU that'll work for gaming, like a 2600. When the 3k series comes out, you can just sell the 2600 and buy a new 3k CPU. You'll lose some money, sure, but you'll get to game for about 3 months before the release of the new CPUs without feeling like you missed out on anything.

The only thing that will really affect the FPS of a build is the GPU unless extremely bottlenecked by the CPU which anything from this generation of CPUs won't for a r9 390. So if you want more FPS I recommend getting a cheaper CPU Ryzen 2600 (https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Processor-Wraith-Stealth-Cooler/dp/B07B41WS48) and motherboard (any really, pick one in your price range) and spending the remainder upgrading your GPU. A 1070 or better should be fine for 1440p at 60 hz.

Hey chief! Congrats in advance on your forthcoming upgrade :D . If you've been managing with an FX 4350 then you'll be very happy with any new processor, even a second-hand CPU like an Intel 6700K or maybe a new Ryzen 5 2600. The tricky part is buying a motherboard & DDR4 RAM while keeping your budget at $400 :( .

That said, for a reflex-intensive game like Planetside 2 I strongly recommend playing on a conventional monitor if feasible. The average LCD TV has much higher input lag than even your run-of-the-mill office LCD monitor.

> TV lag: https://www.rtings.com/tv/tests/inputs/input-lag


> Monitor lag: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/tests/inputs/input-lag

As you can see, the average TV lag spans well into the 25-35ms range while most monitors stay under 10.

u/ProfessorDaen · 1 pointr/Twitch

I would recommend the following:

  • Ryzen CPU, probably R5 2600 ($165) or R5 2600X ($200) if you want to push the budget
  • 16GB of DDR4 RAM, maybe something like G.Skill Ripjaw V 3200MHz ($110)
  • A B450 or X470 motherboard, mostly user preference and budget. You'd have $125 to spend if you went with the R5 2600 and Ripjaw V, so you'd probably get more mileage out of a B450 board. I don't really have a specific recommendation here, unfortunately.

Here's a Ryzen 5 2600 for just $150 w/ free shipping (and inc. stock cooler obv, even if the Stealth is nothing to write home about), which provides simlar perfomance (and superior IPC if you can believe it, with Zen+ edging out both Haswell-E & Broadwell-E) stock vs stock to an i7-6850K in both single & multi-threaded workloads (unless it's something extremely memory bound, that can properly take advantage of X99's quad-channel DDR4), but running cooler, quieter, more efficient, and for just 1/2 the price for a brand new chip that's on a current AND future-proof platform with great boards available for just $70ish.

AM4 has pretty much made every single pre-X299 Intel HEDT platform essentially obsolete for those that don't need it's expanded I/O & memory sub-systems (which Intel would still gimp to varying extents on all but the flagship SKU anyways), and for those people that's what AMD's X399/Threadripper platform is for (which beats X299/ Skylake-X|Cascade Lake-X across the board on both those fronts).

And if your workload priorities happen to lean towards the multi-threaded side, 1st Gen but 8c/16t R7 1700's (which will lose on ST, but dominate on MT vs an i7-6850K after both are reasonably overclocked) are a similar price new as the 2600, and w/ a bigger, better included cooler (Spire RGB vs Stealth).

Literally Intel's only remaining purchasing arguments are for those few who want the best single-threaded perfomance available, totally irregardless of cost/value (see the i9-9900K), and those unlucky few whose workload(s) leave them dependant on Thunderbolt support (which is exactly why freely licensable USB 3.1 Gen 2 [10Gb/s, aka 1.25GB/s, or equal BW to TB1] compatible devices should have been widely available like damn yesterday).

Shopper from Mexico here, trying to get a good build out of the amazon hot sale currently ongoing, is it permited to post a wishlist so people can review it ?

also, something i find very odd is the Ryzen 5 2600x being cheaper in base cost than the 2600? is this a generational thing? ( where a more recent 2600 base would be better?) or it amazon pulling an amazon? here are the 2 examples:

2600x at sub 4k pesos

2600 base at plus 4.5k pesos

i understand the marketing strategies and such, just wanna know if im getting the better product if i go for the 2600x

Well, technically it's a $1056 build and you get some money back after mailing it in and waiting months :S So it's not exactly a fair competition - if my system is allowed the same rule (spending 1060$ upfront) then it beats yours:

I mean sure - you would still need to get a case but you could pick that up and decrease amount of RAM to 16GB. But you do get a better SSD and a PSU in this variant.


I am not saying this system is perfect or whatever mind you. Just that while it does have hiccups it can build fairly good systems too if you check through other options you are given by it upfront so calling it "random parts" is kinda uncalled for.

Yes, all those parts will work together. The thing is that you'll kinda need a CPU to make the ensemble work, though.

u/DarkStarFTW · 1 pointr/buildapc

> I felt more comfortable going the Intel route and would like to continue that way to have a similar architecture everywhere even if I am open to listening. I am not anti-AMD or whatever.

That's a fine decision, but if you want to save a bit more money, it's probably cheaper to go AMD and get equal/better performance. Most software development tools are multithreaded and will benefit from more cores and threads. AMD CPUs are very similar to Intel CPUs, and the only difference is slightly slower single core clocks and much much slower AVX512. If you know you need AVX512, stay with Intel.

For example:

I have a 4790K and 980ti and get around 90-100 fps at 1440p. Finding a cheap 4770k or 4790k is probably your cheapest route to a bit more fps. Otherwise I'd probably suggest an R5 2600 for around $160; 16GB of DDR4 Pc3200 for ~$130 and a B450 mobo for around $125. That would bring your total to right around $415 before tax/shipping.

u/BandidTwitch · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm not sure if you can stretch it but I would highly recommend the ryzen 2600 over the 2200g, you already have the rx570 so you don't need the igpu in the 2200g and you get a much better processor.

u/welcumtocostcoiloveu · 1 pointr/Games

>like the way higher initial costs for a somewhat useable gaming

What do you consider usable? Because it doesn't actually take much to hit 30fps at 1080p which is what most console games run at. It is expensive to run the latest games at the highest possible settings at high resolutions but if your target is just a "console like experience" it is not true that a PC is more expensive they are very comparable in fact.

Here let me build you a PC

Graphics Card (280 after rebate)

Ram (50)

Motherboard (60 after rebate)

CPU (160)

HDD (48)

Mouse + Keyboard (15 after rebate and discount code)

Case (30 after rebate and discount code)

PSU (20)

Total Price - $623 compare that to the price of an XBOX ONE X (399 489 on sale). For $224 134 more you get a gaming pc that can play any game released in 2018 on ultra high and get 60+fps at 1080p which is more than a console can claim, and that is not even including the fact that you now have a good PC and PCs do a fuckload more than just play videogames.

Now take out $200 (buy an older GPU/CPU) and you can build a PC that matches the capabilities of a console. Playing games on medium/high (which is what consoles run) at 1080p and 30fps.

Also that PC has room for improvement throughout the years of ownership. It can use an SSD and another 8 gig stick of ram and more HDD storage. Possibly even aftermarket fans to put on the CPU to overclock it.

The ONLY advantage that consoles have over PC is exclusive titles that never get released outside of that particular console. And even that eventually becomes false because it is only a matter of time until every console can be emulated on PC.

Also you can add $60 to the price of the Xbox because if you want to play multiplayer you need xbox live. So really its $160 more. This also doesn't include the fact that no storefront can even come close to matching the sales during steam summer sales. Let's be super conservative and say you save $30 a year on steam sales for games that you wanted to buy, so that puts us down to $130 more than an Xbox One X while having higher graphical capabilities and also having the benefit of being a PC and not just a console that plays games/streams netflix.

I've done a fair amount of reading on plex servers and file sharing, but I still have a pretty elementary understanding so I'm hoping for some critique/constructive criticism on my plans. I plan on supporting up to 4 plex streams all through Wifi to TVs, tablets, laptops, phones. No remote access at this point. I plan on using a NAS device as storage for tv shows/movies/music and it will also be a torrenting machine. Then have another computer serve as the plex media server. This is probably overkill, but here's what I was planning:

File Storage/Torrenting server

Synology 2 Bay NAS

WD 4TB Hard Drive (x2)


Plex Media Server

Micro ATX Case

Gigabyte Motherboard

Ryzen 5 2600 CPU - 13000 passmark

8 GB Ram

Graphics Card


Still trying to figure out the power supply for the PMS. I think 550w should be ample. I also have a 1TB hard drive from years ago that I think I can use with this. If not I'll just get another one. My understanding is PMS transcoding isn't burdensome on RAM, but more processors cores/threads so I made sure I have ample room there.


The one caveat is this will be in the living room right underneath the main TV, so I wanted to try and keep noise level down. Or is this all just unnecessry overkill and I should just look at a T710/T310 dell server as the PMS?

u/Zackbeast199 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Are you buying a motherboard depending on the CPU you get? If so, then I would get a 2600 because It's 50$ less for a better performance. It's actually 40$ off right now on Amazon.


u/erenzil7 · 1 pointr/buildapc

unless you're going for 144Hz, 2700x is better. sure you lose 5-10 fps, but when your average is 120, and you have a freesynz 75hz panel, it doesn't make a difference.

Lookit, this deal right here. 100 USD less than i5, let's say god B450 or X470 is 50 USD more, that still leaves you with 50 bucks to spend on gamepad, better screen or beer.


Don't get me wrong, 6 core i5's are AMAZING, but their price is shit right now. I mean 8400 (in my region) went from 200USD to 250USD (tax included) in less than a month, while 2600 is was 200 and still is 200USD, offers 2 times more threads, and platform itself has better upgrade path (AMD will do their Zen2 7nm for AM4 socket).

i5's are great, but you're being a fanboy right here.

If you live near a Microcenter you can bundle a motherboard and a compatible CPU and get $30 off.

If money is important and still maintaining future upgradability, you may want to look at AMD Ryzen. It offers pretty good performance (still 5-10% slower than intel). But it offers high core count, cheaper CPUs, and the motherboards are confirmed to allow upgrades through 2020. This is good since the Ryzen2 CPUs launch next year.


Of course this means buying a new Mobo, new CPU and new ram (supports high speed 3000 mhz ram). If you go Ryzen, skip the 1000 series and go straight to the 2000 series.


Here's a Ryzen 5 - 2600 (6 core, 12 threads) for $170 https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Processor-Wraith-Stealth-Cooler/dp/B07B41WS48


Lastly, I say this as an Intel i7-7700k guy. But if my mobo died at this point in time (KNOCK ON WOOD), then I'd probably go Ryzen.

Intanto ti lovvo per system builder che non conoscevo, il 3600 straccia il tuo per pochi soldi in più - oppure il 2600 che va uguale e costa meno.

Sulla scheda madre rimarrei su MSI, visto che l'avevi scelta per Intel. La Tomahawk è ottima, e visto che implementa il flashback puoi aggiornare il BIOS prima di montare la CPU in caso scegliessi di prendere il 3600 - cosa che consiglio caldamente.

u/SaphiraTa · 1 pointr/bapccanada

Gottcha. Are you able to spend a few bucks more on your CPU? An APU is basically graphics that's built into the CPU so you have on board graphics, and therefore do not need a GPU. That being said the APU graphics aren't very powerful and will not be great in more demanding games, or further down the line. The benefit of it would be you can obviously build a simple budget rig without having to spend out on a high priced GPU.


Since you're getting a pretty good GPU from your friend, I'd suggest spending a bit more on a better CPU and one that your not paying for having an APU (even though the CPU is cheaper, you'll get better performance/price by getting a solely CPU instead of a CPU with graphics). Take a look at the Ryzen 2600 its about 60 bucks more but if you can afford it id suggest that. https://www.amazon.ca/AMD-YD2600BBAFBOX-Processeur-RYZEN5-Socket/dp/B07B41WS48/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=2600&qid=1566001973&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Just to help out.

A new ryzen 2200g is $80: Here

What I would recommend is a 3200G brand new for $100: Here

A ryzen 2600 retails for $130: Here but you most likely can find it with a serious discount. So if I were you I would go with a 2600 as first choice and then maybe a 3200g. I assume you have a dedicated graphics card?

Also heres a benchmark comparing 3200g vs ryzen 2600: Here. This website takes hundreds of peoples benchmarks and averages them out. You can see the ryzen 2600 tends to be much more balanced.


Thats my advice, cheers, Velcro

For all of you experienced builders out there: don’t worry! I’m using a new app called BuildCores that still doesn’t have some core features so I have to add links for keyboard and mouse.

For OP: sorry that I went a bit over budget! It’s worth it though.

You can save a bit of money with a 500/512 GB SSD. Also the Ryzen 2600 is still on sale for $120 on amazon for $15 more.

I did a little digging and found a AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler for relatively cheap. Will it work with my current build? I put it on PC Part Picker with the 1050 Ti and it says it’s compatible. I’m just curious about the wattage and my motherboard.

The TDP is 15 more than the i3 7100.
It has 6 cores
