The AF version is cheaper, and performs marginally better, so I suggest getting the AF version. It is the better version, and is actually closer to a R5 2600 than a R5 1600. Highly recommended.
So Zen 3 is a full new architecture? I thought the same thing; I thought Zen 2 was a new architecture. If so, we have to hope that Ryzen finally matches Intel in single core performance!
Hmm, okay thanks for the reply!
Yeah. I used to find the Ryzen 5 2600X for around $129, the Ryzen 7 2700X around $160, the Ryzen 7 3700X for $300, the 3800X at $340, and heck, the RTX 2060 at $289! What the hell is happening? It surely isn't a good time to build a PC right now.
Yeah, I know. I used to be able to squeeze in an RTX 2070 SUPER when the Ryzen 7 2700X was $160 and other stuff was cheaper in a $1K build.
Thanks for the reply, I was thinking this too. Probably not the best time to build a PC right now lol, I used to be able to squeeze an RTX 2070 SUPER in a $1000 PC Build.
Okay, will do.
Okay thanks. I find some RTX 2060 SUPERs for $379, and the cheapest RTX 2070 was $399. I was gonna go for the RTX 2070 anyways because of the better gaming performance even if its the minuscule gaming difference.
You're welcome, and if you need another part list, I'll help you make the best one.
I modified your build a bit, got you some better storage options, a better graphics card, and some better RAM.
The Part List For You
Ok, I got you.
Hmm. So are you saying that they are skipping Navi 12 and 14, jumping straight to big Navi?
Honestly, I wouldn't think it would be worth it AT ALL, since the the performance is not better compared to the RX 570, and the price really has to match the RX 570, and you REALLY want to have NVIDIA-only features. If not, go AMD.
Right now, it is just fair game, and whoever's performance and price beats their competitors, are the good buy, take the GTX 1660 Super, for example.
Big Polaris and Vega are still being worked on? I thought they'd moved on solely to NAVI cards. They really need to up their release schedule, it's been 4 months with no new GPU from AMD. Feel like they need to make the RX 5500 fast and compete aggressively in terms of price compared to 1650, make the 5600 noticeably better than 1660S and the 5600 XT faster than the Vega 56 (similar to the RTX 2060). That's the way (possibly the only way) that AMD is going to crawl back to the top.
I mean in 3 months or so NVIDIA is going to either make a huge success with Ampere, or they are going to flop heavily, and NAVI cards from AMD are going to prevail, right now, just wait for Navi 14 and Navi 12.
Hmmm. See, the fact that the 1660 Super released, it really disrupts the whole GPU market. Now people get insane performance with the 1660 Super for $230, and basically makes the Ti obsolete. If I find a Vega 56 for $250, then maybe I'll consider it.
Thanks for the suggestion! Typically, i wouldnt want to buy from used vendors, but its seems like the Vega 56 on eBay might be a good deal. I would only buy it though if it was readily available for that price on eBay.
Okay, thanks. I was only gonna plan on buying the Vega 56,if it was under $300, and then using the Powerplay mods to crank an OC to supersede the 2060. Thanks!
Thanks for the reply! Right now, as of writing this reply, I see RTX 2080s for under $670, while the RTX 2080 SUPER is at the RTX 2080 MSRP pricing. Considering what you have just said, would an RTX 2080 still be worth it, considering that the RTX 2080 SUPER greatly supersedes the 2080?
Uhh... I don't really understand what you mean. If what you mean is basically you have cash on hand, I would recommend you go and buy the stuff on Newegg. Just go and deposit your money into your credit card and then buy the parts online. Sometimes your local retailers might not have the most up-to-date pricing. Check up with your local retailers to see which parts are cheaper and which are more expensive. At this point, it is really up to you where you want to buy the parts from! Just so you know though, PC Part Picker has all of the latest pricing online, so be sure to check my part list for best deals on online parts! Have fun shopping!
Hey, no problem! Sometimes, a tip is to sort it by price to find the replicas of the products you want for a lower price. That way, you can save some money and reallocate to something else, for example, a better cooler or a better graphics card. Hope this helped!
Here is a modified version of your part list! I have found a couple of better deals for some of the overpriced parts you chose. I also gave you a Coolermaster case and an RTX 2060, but if you don’t like it you can change it back! Hope this helps!
Thanks for the reply man! I am not actually trying to build a PC (which is stupid to say) and I am just trying to make sure other people know the best choices of parts for starter PC builders. Anyways, thanks for the reply! RTX 2080 SUPER, I assume, is closer to 2080 than 2080 Ti? I mean for all I know if that is the case, the RTX 2080 Ti Super could exist, but who knows nVIDIA at this point.
If you are looking to upgrade to an RX 5700 XT, then your current parts are very balanced and good. One thing I will say is that the X570 motherboard is not mandatory, as pretty much you can get much of the same in X470, minus PCIe Gen4. I suppose you can keep it since you are getting RX 5700 XT, but that’s a good note. Also for your keyboard I recommend the HyperX Alloy FPS Pro as they have the Cherry MX Blues while the G610 has Romer-Gs. That’s all and if you reply I will help you with the limited time I have as much as possible! Enjoy PC part picking and good luck!
EDIT: if you don’t want Blues you can also pick the Brown or Red versions of the keyboard.
Wow, nice build! I can’t think that you could fit 9900K with RTX2080 Ti in a $2000 PC, but you apparently can! However, if you cheaped out on the case, memory, and PSU, would it be possible to get this under $2000?
