might find this helpful for ryzen without gpu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5FiwITzm3M

Yeah came up in my YouTube feed last night.. :)

The ruddy 2600 doesn't appear to have the vega graphics, infact no graphics on chip at all  :dunno: :roll:

Good spot cheers! I think I might go for a separate GPU and push the budget a little more..

I was recommended the Ryzen 2600X gen2 - No regrets there. As a note - if you do not plan to try crazy overclock and do not buy a board with good voltage modifiers then the standard version is cheaper and still does the business from what I read online.

In terms of graphics card - I have friends with Radeon but TBH most games still optimize well for nVidia first. Also depends on your monitor and what sync tech it has but a 1060 will still be on max settings and above 60fps for most games UNLESS you have an UltraWide where a 1080/TI will be better.

I am not sure on the new RTX cards without ray tracing that are supposed to be the new 1060's. Mixed views on those. I think people still saying either new or second hand 1080/TI from ex mining is better.


The new raft of underperforming nVidia cards should be pushing prices down on the older models now, so I'd leave buying your graphics card until last, you can probably get a bargain on a 1070/1080

Cheers, the 1080ti blows the budget anyway even second hand at the moment, but will look at the 1060 instead of the RTX perhaps.. and maybe wait to see what happens..

Full Ray Tracing still seems to heavy as well. What Metro has done is used it for in regards to DLSS to good effect.
But yeah, the cheaper version or just a 1080 will still do you well for the most part for some time still.

So the Ryzen 3000 series chips should be out sometime in the next 3 months, so it's probably worth waiting to see what pricing these come out with and then see what happens with the GPUs at the same time.. it would be nice to have a system before then, but probably more sensible to wait for the extra benefit..

Just looking at cases.. I'm thinking of spending a little extra here and get something that can handle future upgrades and looks good..

I was thinking MATX, but TBH I don't need the small size and and I think it will give me more options then..

I was thinking this, as they also have easy water cooling upgrades and great cable management, but open to options..

Are you planning on getting into water cooling? If you are, I think that's a solid choice.

No it's a liquid choice

I used to get expensive cases, not really sure why... my nephew bought a £20 case... and it's awesome, bought myself one on my next upgrade

I thought it was an NZXT make like the one you posted above (but googled it and can't see the one I have)... I've text my nephew to see what he says

Fluidity is always good in computer driven environments, until you get a leak. :ptu:
