Ryzen7 2700x vs Ryzen7 3700x vs Ryzen9 3900x I have made 3 options. The only difference is the MOBO and CPU.
My plan is to stick with the build for 3+ years without further upgrades (maybe GPU). Trying to balance value with performance and future proof specs. I have listed them as Mid, Mid-High, and High end build.
Mid End: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Munar4real/saved/#view=8XYMcf $1453.88
Mid-High: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Munar4real/saved/#view=kH86RB $1654.87
High End: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Munar4real/saved/#view=vjNK4D $1944.87
I plan to game, music production (hobby), minor Blender use (<5% usage), and CAD solve. Looking for at least 8 cores, wondering if the performance increase are worth the differences in price.
My gut feeling is that I won't need to upgrade the high end for significantly more time that the other options, but the mid end provides great value for current day applications.
Also if you have a suggested change please let me know. Such as using the Mid-high MOBO with the High end CPU.
