Hard to say. I say give it a shot with the Ryzen APU and if frame rates are not up to your requirements, put in a dedicated GPU.

I was looking at the ryzen 5 2600 and a x470 mobo but couple of guys told me to get the ryzen 5 3600 and a x570 mobo. Please bear in mind i am not into heavy gaming. My graphics card is a noob nvidia gt1030.

Would the ryzen 3400g with it's apu perform better than the gt1030?

Help
Get the Ryzen 3600 and a discrete card. This is a 3rd gen CPU which has major architectural improvements.

The 3400G is actually a second gen part with integrated graphics and not much faster than the 2400G that it replaces.

The third gen is roughly 20% faster in single core and 30-40% faster in multi core benchmarks. You don't need to buy an expensive X570 board unless you absolutely need PCIe 4.0 storage which also costs a bomb.

You are better off with a decent B450 board like the MSI B450 tomahawk or Asus B450 Prime or similar boards.

Thanks. I didn't know you could use the 3600 with a b450 mobo would a x470 be better than the b450?
And what mhz ram should i get. Keep reading about how the ryzens work better with faster rams.
@sandeep, checked out the creative ae-9? I think that would be my answer to a DAC

They're basically evenly matched in graphics performance. Here is a simple comparo: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compar...83726vsm401440

Btw, using this site, you can run a benchmark test on your current PC, and then compare your desired build against it to see the gains

I second this opinion. If you're not into gaming, then just retain your GT 1030 and get a better CPU.

Cheers

Ok,
So it would be:
Ryzen 5 3600
Asus ROG Strix B450
Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz 2x8GB
Corsair Spec-Alpha Black/Silver Case
Corsair 650W SMPS

Using my current GT1030, Razer arctosa keyboard and logitech g502 mouse and the 27" curved sammy monitor

Might get the new creative AE-9 sometime later from the US of A. Hoping for a sale.

Speakers are the logitech thx 2.1 ones. Upgrade planned with polk rtia3 and an amp.

Default Re: The Desktop Computer & Configuration Thread

So the list looks like this:

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Processor
Asus ROG Strix B450-F Board
Corsair Vengeance 2*8GB 3000MHz RAM
WD 1TB 7200 HDD
Samsung 120GB SSD
Nvidia GT1030 2GB DDR5 Graphics
Corsair VS650 PSU [White certified]
Samsung 27" Curved monitor
Razer Arctosa keyboard
Logitech g502 mouse
Corsair Spec Alpha Case [Black/Silver]

Two questions:
Bit confused with the exact RAM module i need to buy. The latency spec and something about the model series ending with even or odd number?

Might get the Creative AE-9 soundcard in the future and it requires a bronze/gold psu. For the spec listed, do i need 650W?

Thanks

As an Asus X370 board owner, I must warn you that right now 3rd gen support on asus boards is screwed up with high voltages and what not. Since you are buying new, extend to the x570 or buy a gigabyte b450 which seems to have their bios issues sorted out properly. Make sure that the board's bios is updated to the latest before putting the 3600 or else it won't get detected.

Thanks for the warning. The x570 boards seem to a bit ahead for me. As it is i am stretching myself with this build going for the 3600

Would this be a good one?
