I got the CPU used for $120. New id get a ryzen 3600 or 3300x based on budget with a b450 Motherboard. GPU I bought new 2.5 years ago. Now get a 5600xt or 2060 for less than $300

It's a good setup though for the price

If you read and look at the pictures I paid $600 for

2600x 5700xt 32gb ddr4 (4x8gb) 500 nvme 1tb hd 4 tb hd

I took the 5700xt, 500 nvme, 1tb hd, 4tb hd and put in a 390x and m.2 512gb ssd and sold it for $620. So I traded a 390x and 512 m.2 ssd for 5700xt, 500 nvme, 4tb hd, 1tb hd, and 6 case fans and $20.

Yeah i'm happy with my purchase

I've built about 7 or 8 of these setups and honestly they are 1080P beasts.

This is a spare parts built to sale. I upgraded my son's system from a 2700x to 3600 and 1070ti to 5700. Took those and upgraded my wife's 1700x and 980ti. I then took the leftovers and some new parts and built this.

Sold for a profit and upgraded 2 machines.

This killls R6 Siege and reports would be nothing. Everything was new except ddr4 and gpu. Well the prices are listed but can't get them for that now. The 580 8gb xfx gts Black was $110 on /r/hardwareswap. Now no one will even respond to my posts asking for GPU and eBay has used 580 for over $150. I'd recommend a new 590 for $180 on Amazon.

The 1600 AF (didn't see it as a part on pcpartpicker) and honestly this is the 6th setup i've done with the 1600AF + 16gb 3000+ mhz + rx 580 8gb and everyone loves them. In Siege benchmark 1080P max view and max settings it averaged 150 fps (while recording) and in World of Warcraft it maxed 1080P al settings at 100 fps. Any particular game you were interested in ?

PC are easy to assemble and PCPartpicker make sure your parts work together. You can download windows 10 free from microsoft (all you need is a 8GB or larger USB drive). https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Don't have Modern Warfare but added a R6 Sige 1080P Ultra Preset to the images. Stock CPU, GPU from 1366mhz to 1450 and volts dropped from 1150 to 1140 and no power boost (my 24/7 clocks on it)

Many came from Amazon. They are prioritizing essential products so no 2 day shipping. I've had to wait 7+ days for some items but they are arriving

It's a build I did to sale. May end up getting the RGB since it adds $$ to the sale price.

It's a great gamer and will play anything at 1080P. What game I can try to benchmark it if I don't sale it.

Any game 1080P 60+

If there is any particular game I can try to benchmark it if I can. These setups are very good bang for buck and should last a few more years. This build will need storage before anything. GPU upgrade in a couple years to keep up with newer games (but that's any build)

I price my systems fair and sale pretty easily. I've learned $550-600 is about the max people in my area will pay for anything. I prefer the black cables but the "ketchup and mustard" hasn't been a deterrent. This PC I listed at $625 and sold it for $600 in less than 48 hours

No. But USB or pci adapters easily fit due to the nice layout of the board. If you plan to get a GPU I suggest the cheaper and newerr Ryzen 5 1609 AF from Amazon for $85

Well purely gaming they are similar. For editing and a little future proof the 3700x has 2 more cores and 4 more threads.

AMD marketed the 5600XT as a 1660 competitor. Then Nvidia paper dropped the 2060 price so AMD released a vbios to unlock the 5600XT to compete. They had limited the cards to not step on the 5700 toes. The firmware is fixed by now and any driver issues have been cleared. AMD always age better than Nvidia and are beating them at launch. Just like the 1060 used to beat the 580 and now the 1060 can't compete with them. MANY 5600Xt (more than 10) are under $300 with 5 reputable mdoels under $285 with the Asrock Challenger around $270. The 2060 are primarily over $320 with one ITX model listed at $290 and one at $310. So no they are not "at $300" they are "at $310 with most $350 and higher" So I'd take the $280 Gigabyte 5600XT Gaming over the ITX 2060 or even the $320 better 2060 cards.

5600xt is same price and much faster 1600af is cheaper and practically same as 2600

The review samples were to be updated due to Nvidia paper dropping 2060 price. In reality the 2060 is not $300 and the 5600XT have the firmware making them perform more on par with a 5700.

One 2060 (itx poor review cared) at $290 vs several 5600Xt at $270 (the Asrock 5600XT challenger which is a good card). Not only are t he 5600XT better and faster and cheaper but have 2 games and 3 months xbox pass Hardware unboxed shows the 5600xt is a little faster but at $40 cheaper for the most part that's over 15% savings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a615W-cNeMw

I have a 5700 vbios flashed XT and since 20.x.x drivers there is no issues. The 2060 is slower than the 5600XT and the vbios flash is free and the 2060 is rarely ever under $300 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a615W-cNeMw

A 2060 is not better than a 5600XT which is basically a 5700 and about as fast as a 2060 super

Switch to a Ryzen 5 3600 with a B450 motherboard. Same gaming and better productivity and save yourself about $100 which you can put toward the GPU for a 5700xt or 2070 super

Also 32gb is a bit much unless you are doing a lot of 4k video editing.

The 970 evo is a good drive but in daily use doesn't feel any faster than a good NVMe drive

Love to see your specs based on your 2070 for $420 recommendation (the 2060S and 5700 are much cheaper and close or faster (5700 faster))
