New AMD Ryzen Build. Suggestions would be appreciated!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Well, I'm planning to build a new PC since I gave my current one to my wife and I'm using my laptop meanwhile. To start with I already got the case, the monitor and two SDDs

Case: Thermaltake Versa C21 RGB ATX Mid-Tower Chassis
Monitor: LG 23MP67HQ IPS 23" (1080p)
SDD1: Crucial MX100 SSD 128GB
SDD2: PNY XLR8 CS2111 SSD 240GB

I was thinking to get as motherboard the ASUS ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071SGQP1Q/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1) and maybe an AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Processor. For videocard an AMD RX 580 or RX 570 (4GB). Maybe an M.2. NVME SSD later on.

The fact is I'm not gonna build it right away, want to complete it in 3 months tops. So tomorrow is Black Friday, I got around $ 250 to start (yeah black friday got me with the pants down, too sad I get paid on 30th). So what should I get first tomorrow, any suggestions would be appreciated, taking in mind I would only game at 1080p.

Thanks for your help in advance thumb.gif

There are new Ryzen CPU's and motherboards coming out in Q1 2018. So idk if that will fit in your 3 month window but it something to consider. I wouldn't consider a nvme drive as they are not much faster for most things. However they do look nice. The b350 strix is a good option for a 1600x. Make sure to get some cas14 3200mhz ddr4 to go with it. Ryzen loves those b-die stick's.

Thanks for the info, that's something to have into consideration. I just tried to rush to build a PC, because I got to know I will be dad! My baby will come around july on the next year, so I want to buy that first and then start buying the stuff for the baby!! I already got plans, I have to teach the baby to build his/her first PC!

And taking in mind there will be new Ryzen CPUs on 2018 Q1, maybe I would get some deep discount on the current CPUs, I don't know. Or should I just be better off getting the PSU, RAM first, if I find some nice discount tomorrow?

Congrats...

Indeed if you want to get the ram and psu first. I believe the seasonic focus plus 650w is on sale this week. Which is basically one of the best if not the best psu you can get currently. But as far as ram I would try to get 3200mhz Samsung b-die ram which is cas 14. smile.gif

I think I will grab today the motherboard ASUS ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING ($109.99 on Amazon and Newegg) and the PSU Seasonic FOCUS Plus Series SSR-850FX 850W 80+ Gold ($89.99 on Newegg).

Also I tempted going for the ASUS ROG Strix X370-F GAMING ($129.99) because it's the daily deal at amazon, but I don't know whether it will be overkill or not, since I'm not planning to overclock a lot.

Hey, thanks for your help. I was trying to find the same Seasonic but rated at 650W and couldn't find it cheaper, so I went for this 850 watt PSU that was on sale. Would I have any problem? I appreciate advices. Thanks!

You can never go overboard with a good quality motherboard especially when it’s only $20 more for an X370 Strix over the far lesser B350 Strix.

You wont have any issues if it was around the same price you are fine. We just want you paying way over the price for something you wont need.

 

Also the x370 has better vrm's which you might not need. But it might be a better fit for future upgrades if needed. Next years ryzen is compatible with this years boards and possibly the 2019 ryzen 2 might work with this years board as well.
