Build Thoughts: AMD Rig

Good Morning,

I am currently looking to build a new gaming computer/streaming rig. I currently am looking to play FPS and DCS World which is a flight Simulator. My monitor setup is Currently two 1080p @ 144 Hz but I will only use 1 monitor for gaming and another for my capture software and other apps. Below I will list my computer I am looking to build.

Computer Case: ----- Currently looking into a computer case I would like -----
CPU: AMD RYZEN 9 3900X
CPU Cooler: ASUS ROG Ryuo 240 RGB AIO
Motherboard: ASUS ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero WiFi
RAM: ----- Currently looking into which 32GB kit I would want -----
Graphic Card: ASUS ROG STRIX RX 5700 XT Gaming
Storage: ----- Currently looking to do a 3 SSD setup -----
PSU: ----- Currently looking into a power supply -----

Will I be happy with the above build for 1080P @ 144Hz. I am not looking to hit 144Hz all the time I was able to get a ASUS gaming monitor for a decent price. I am coming from a GTX 1080 when it first came out and that card got damaged and I got rid of it.

Looks like a good build other than the cpu cooler, unless you were getting that for its aesthetics. I believe their are better AIO coolers for cheaper.

I have a big bang house. I had all the materials for my new house brought in and dumped on a vacant lot. I took a stick of dynamite, lit the fuse on fire and tossed it into the pile of materials. BOOM went the explosion and when the dust settled I had a new house! Amazing isn't it?

Was looking for there AIO. CPU cooling is not horrible since I won't be OC no big deal


My man concern is gaming at 1080p @ 144hZ is the 3900X and 5700XT a good combo. Ill wait till next year when the bigger AMD cards come out or will those be overkill

Mostly play DCS World Flight sim and FPS

Years ago some players benchmarked dcs world with amd and Nvidia GPUs, and amd GPU performed poorly there, and not poorly as in 5700xt loses to 2070 super but rather extreme beat down equivalent with hypothetical 5900xt flagship losing to 2060.

I don't know if things have been changing since then but I'd wary with using amd GPU for playing dcs world.

I would recommend at least one NVMe SSD drive. Such as:
https://www.samsung.com/semiconducto...er/970evoplus/

PSU and RAM... I am quite confident that the ones I chosen would be great. Gskill RAM 3200MHz cl 14. Seasonic prime titanium at 700W might be even bit overkill.

--- Building in progress * AMD Threadripper 1900x * Asrock X399M Taichi * Radeon VII * Gskill Xflare / Samsung B-die 3200 14-14-14-32 * Samsung 970 PRO 512gb * Fractal Design Node 804 * Seasonic Prime Ultra 850 Titanium *
--- Desktop * AMD Phenom II x6 1090t @ 3,8GHz * ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 * Gigabyte R9 FuryX * A-Data XPG 2.0 / Elpida Hyper MNH 1866 @ 1600 6-6-6-18 * LSI 9211-8i / Raid 0 / 5x Corsair Force 3 GS * Creative Xfi Fatal1ty * Intel I210-T1 * Steelseries 6Gv2 * Logitech MX518 * Samsung U28E590D *

Dont buy a Samsung NVME SSD they are overpriced and there are lots of options almost as good but way cheaper
https://www.overclock.net/forum/355-...2-toshiba.html

Dont buy a CLC cooler either
https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...lc-cooler.html

As for the PSU the Seasonic Focus Plus is good option
There is no 700 watt titanium by the way there is a 600 watt and a 750 watt but no 700 watt

I was also considering Toshiba NVMe drives. I have decided to pay extra for 970 PRO. Such drive would for sure exceed any life expectancy i would put on it. Also everything (flash chip, DDR3 cache and ARM processor) on the drive is manufactured by Samsung. That allows them to tune the hardware for maximum possible performance and reliability - my choice was influenced by specific hardware parts used on the disk.

Toshiba or similar NVMe flash drives are indeed more than sufficient in both performance or life expectancy.

Agree. In my case i was targeting maximum possible stability for overclock or dual GPU. In the end its a unused capacity. Due this i had different positive side effect. Lower temperatures, voltages are more stable and total power consumption of the system is really low (85 watts when browsing, 130-165 watts on FULLHD gaming, 450 watts on 4k gaming).

In both cases i decided to pay extra to have benefits unrelated to gaming performance.
