Re entering the scene

Oh boy. Where to begin. Was a system builder and enthusiast for some years, but I got out of the game for a while because I became interested in the AR-15 building scene, and car scene. So I’ve been out of the loop since 2013. Last system was an i5 2500K 4.6GHZ with a ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3, 128gb Crucial M3, Radeon HD 7950 1,150MHZ. Benched about 10K on 3D Mark 11. I’m not familiar with much of anything post 2013, and I’m wanting to learn again and build a similar system, with a unlocked I5/I7 and a single higher end GPU, and spend about the same price. $1,300 ish.

I’ll have to catch up a LOT obviously, but I don’t know where to start. Where should I?

System before that was an I7 950 at 4.3ghz, and a GTX 570 (GTX 295 SLI failed me prior)

Anyways. I’m hoping to get back into the game, and hopefully some of my old knowledge will come back to me and I can simply resume progress.

Hi. Welcome to OCN. SHort version;

AMD Ryzen 3000 series, available from July 7th onwards, is the CPU series to buy at this point.
NVME SSD is a must.
SLI/Crossfire is dead.
Adaptive sync is a thing for monitors now.
There is RGB on everything.
DDR4 is currently relatively cheap to buy.
If you want anything faster than a GTX 1080 Ti/RTX 2070, only nVidia is recommended.

That pretty much sums up the state of affairs nowadays.

Really? AMD is no longer like they were in the Bulldozer days? SLI/Crossfire is dead? How so?

Barely any games support it now. Many cards, at least on the nVidia side, don't even support SLI anymore. As for AMD no longer being in the Bulldozer phase...;

Saying NVME is a must is misinformation as NVME is only faster for some use cases and gaming and normal OS use are not such use cases and they are a waste of time and money for that
As for AMD yes they have caught up to Intel since Intel has been totally asleep and lazy for a very long time and Intel is about to have some really bad years

And SLI and Crossfire is pretty much dead and gone since pretty much nobody wants to have support for it

Depends on the use case but look at how the 2700x does compared to the old 2500K
https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compar...700X/619vs3958

The 3000 series will be much better and faster than the older 2000 series

If planning on doing a new build ATM just wait for the 3000 chips to come out before making a purchase, if it goes anything close to what's been said about them you won't be disappointed.

An SSD is a must yes but AHCI is more than good enough for many users and its also cheaper in many cases


It depends on the use case but saying NVME is just better for everything is plainly false
