Comment reply on tomtomj2's Completed Build: The Emperor's Will (Ryzen Upgrade)

Ryzen 7 is for more than gaming, Ryzen 5 and 3 will handle it almost as well but at a lower price, since most games don't usally use more than 4-6 cores. One thing that kinda kicks Ryzen in the gut is that AMD is always lagging behind in single core performance, one thing that all games are affected by.

Concluding, Ryzen 7 can do gaming very well and much other things, but its not the best gaming CPU for the money since it lacks the single-core performance. Ryzen 3 and 5 would probably be ryzen 7 just cut down, so they would keep the same single-core performance and have less obsolete cores whilst reducing the price. That's my point, Ryzen 3 and 5 are the best bang for your buck game wise.

About the same performance from 300-500$ to 150-250$

great price 1080p and a possible QHD build, but you should have gone for a 6500 in my opinion to avoid any possible restraints in fps from the cpu side. Yeah bruh 1000 full build for QHD, times have changed indeed.

I don't think you will be able to fully use your 144hz monitor with a rx 480.

look, skylake has more expensive ram and motherboards and btw you can get an i7-3820 for 100 bucks in ebay and a mobo for 150$ so you spend almost as much in a 4-5 year old cpu and mobo kit as you spend in just a 6700k.

i bet you can easily reach more than 4Ghz, ask google: i5 6600k overclock hyper 212 evo. I bet you will find something useful right away like a recommendation.

Look i don't think 40 degrees celsius is high. it's like room temperature some days in Brazil. Damaging the CPU would take at least 90 degrees celsius.

The G3258 is pretty budget and haswell has loads of power eff. wait for another refresh or more cpu releases. I think the new 6th gen I3s will wreck the AMD apus and athlons finally.

Great Build! The Pentium G3258 and the 750 Ti mix like we say here on Brazil: It's like beans and rice! You probably dont need a water cooler beacuse this cpu its just a dual core, maybe if it was clocked at 4.0 GHz base... A 212 EVO will work swell on it! Never go cheap on ram for a liq. cooler, any computer stands on three legs: RAM, CPU and GPU they must be equaly sized! Another 4GB dimm will cost like 10 bucks to make your graphics amazing! .

You could squeeze a i5-4440 170-180 US$ which has 4 cores (amazing for games) even if it is a 4th gen you could get a cheaper motherboard, ram and get the same gpu for less: EVGA GeForce GTX 950 2GB Superclocked+ ACX 2.0 140-145 U$$.

Not criticizing your Skylake choice but 6th gen hasn't really put it's roots on ground yet and everyone is going crazy on it. Even a Pentium 4 and and Intel Core duo 2 can play modern games (crysis, gta, etc...) avg specs at 30 fps. Crazy right? !good setup! ;) adata are super cheap and quality SSDs, i got fooled by samsung and kingston all of my life (don't trust this V300 series!).
