3700x is a good choice, many 6 core CPUs are close to hitting limits in modern AAA titles especially when paired with a high end GPU.
Many but not the R5 3600/X. This will last you till you upgrade or when the next wave hit

For now yes, but in 2-3 years, games may need more cores again?

Is it advisable to get more then 3200mhz rams for non X Ryzens. I was thinking since OCing would net low results, might as well spend the $$$ on better rams.

Still don't get why people think future proofing exists in IT. It's so fast moving that there is no such thing as future-proofing.

Which ram did you get. Saw a Gskill 16gb 3200 on newegg for Sgd 98 before Gst.

Does ram brand matter or just the speed. Considering Gskill or corsair, cheaper the better, no need for rgb or Oc what not

Posted from PCWX using Pixel 2 XL
gskill 32 gb off newegg for $200
during day to day usage i'm already hitting 15gb usage, i figure more ram is better

i would think that specs matters more than brand, just like intel vs amd. ppl might think intel is better but if you compared an i5 vs a 3900x, the 3900x is gonna be significantly better

I decided to go with 3700x with msi x570 gaming edge.
Reason being is for future proofing. As console gaming is moving toward 8 core and I do understand that they are also using lesser clock Speed. And it will take some time before computer gaming to reach 8core and no one know when it gonna happen. But I intend to use it until it spoil or something so probably 5yrs? Who know what the future holds. Therefore, I decided to go with 3700x just incase as my budget is able to support it. 3800x and 3900x is already over my budget
price difference between 3700 and 3600 is 150
if you are adventurous enough to buy gpu off carousell
1070 - $250 - 300
1080 - 400 - 450

single core 3600 matches 3700
in terms of gaming performance where you pair both cpus with a gpu that can barely make 60fps, the difference is at most 3fps

i was considering the 3700x or the 3900x and $150 - 400 is not a lot of money but the waiting time and the constant checking for updates to see which store has stock made me consider the 3600x

also i was very turned off by the shops at sls trying to make every single dollar. i visited a shop and asked if they got stock, the guy looked at me for a few seconds - obviously sizing me up then asked, full build?
i said no, he replied, no stock
couldn't even be bothered to say, sorry reserved for full build only

i currently have a 1070 and it is still good but i've been tempted to ugrade. its still not worthy to pay to upgrade to a 5600xt yet but if the salesperson were a little more friendly i would not have minded to upgrade

anyway i got everything online, less hassle at the end of the day

Totally get the turned off part, I ended up ordering my Ryzen 5 3600 from Amazon for US$206.86, shipping included. A price that probably won't be seen in SG for some time (that is, if one can even buy the processor alone in the first place), until the SLS retailers decide that the demand hype has died down, and they can't chop carrot head anymore.

Lol, a lot of people here forgotten the 1mth later rule. Wait 1 mth after release, then see the price, see if any bugs or other issues that might surface. But for this case, 2 mths might be better, since the supply might be a bit tight.
Just take the time to do a bit more research.

i'm too lazy to argue.. battlefield V with a rtx 2060 already easily 80+% CPU usage. With high end GPUs it will be a bottleneck.

Sigh, that's why i seldom visit HWZ anymore and prefer reading info about tech on other mediums. Reddit downvote system make people use their head before posting.
