New build advise.

Hi all, I'm wanting to upgrade a PC I have. Looking at a i7 9700k build. Mainly for games like BF5. Put this pc partspicker together, but need to confirm its all good.

With Zen 2 so close its an extremely bad idea and time to build something when Zen 2 will probably be much better than anything Intel has to offer
Besides that there are many things in that build that can be done better and cheaper

First off NVME is a waste of time and money for gaming as its only a second faster at most compared to an SSD using the older AHCI protocole


The 660P is that cheap because its using QLC NAND flash which means when you start to copy the speeds will drop like a rock to speeds just as slow as a HDD so its actually much worse than a good old 2,5 inch SSD




And second the PSU you picked has a problem with its fan when used in eco mode and the whole series has a number of problems and drawbacks so get a Seasonic Focus or Prime Ultra or get a G2 instead

Thanks. Just off hand what kind of price with a x570 MB sell for. And what kind of availability?

You are probably looking at a similar if not slightly lesser cost for a comparable X570/ 8c Zen 2 system. I say comparable because even if IPC only matches intel, the AMD equivalent will have SMT which is akin to intel's hyperthreading albeit without (many) of the vulnerabilities that require performance eating mitigation down the road.

Granted, you will have a great CPU with either system, may as well wait and see if either the prices drop or to see if the real performance numbers blow intel out of the water.

Also I believe the motherboards will be available similar time as the chips if not earlier. I can't imagine a decent board being much more than $100-150 with your choice for the CPU to pair it with.

Turns out that the PCB requirements for PCIe 4.0 and the chipset won't come cheap.

From the current leaks, X570 boards might be pretty expensive. The absolute entry level boards could be starting at $150.

It might actually make more sense go with a B450/X470 MB depending on your requirements.

But these are still just leaks, they might be false.

Rumors say X570 boards are going to cost quite a lot due to the chipset and PCI-E 4.0 so buying an X470 board and updating the BIOS might be cheaper

All Intel CPU´s from the last few generations are full of security holes such as ZombieLoad, Spectre, Fallout and Meltdown
