Guide

Excellent AMD Gaming/Streaming Build

Description

CPU

At this budget, we're using the new AMD Ryzen 5 3600. Since it is overclockable the Noctua NH-U12S has been added to the list. A cooler of this stature will allow a high overclock without overheating or becoming noisy.

Note: If you'd prefer to consider a similar build, but instead using an Intel processor, be sure to check out our Excellent Intel Gaming Build Guide.

Motherboard

We're using a parametric filter to constantly select the best-priced motherboard while meeting selected criteria. In this case, we are filtering for ATX X570 chipsets and up to 4 DDR4 DIMM slots for future expansion. The compatibility engine will filter out anything not compatible with the build, and it will automatically update with the best priced option as prices change.

The X570 chipset was selected rather than the B450 chipset in order to bypass any BIOS update issues that would occur when combining a new Ryzen 3000 series (Zen 2) CPU with a B450 chipset. However, you are welcome to explore those options as well, but be forewarned that because it uses an older chipset, this motherboard may require a BIOS update before it will be compatible with the CPU. The manufacturer may have already updated the B450 BIOS before sending it to retailers, but if not, many motherboards cannot be updated without using an older CPU to do so.

If the motherboard is not updated, the PC is unlikely to boot at all with the new CPU. In this case, you would need to temporarily use an older CPU to update the motherboard BIOS before using a new CPU with it. The CPUs that could do this update would be the Ryzen 1000 CPUs, Ryzen 2000 APUs, and Ryzen 2000 CPUs.

If you stick with the X570 chipset on original part list provided, you will not have to deal with this process.

Memory

For our memory, the parametric filter finds the best price on 16GB kits of memory that are within AMD’s recommended specifications. We've limited it to DDR4-3200 and faster speeds, as Ryzen CPUs scale well with higher frequency memory.

Storage

We're use parametric filters to incorporate an SSD with at least 500GB of space. We have also added a parametric filter for a 2TB mechanical drive for mass storage, such as extra games and videos. Everyone's storage requirements differ, so feel free to add or remove capacity as needed.

GPU

For our GPU, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER is one of the best price for performance cards on the market. The RTX 2070 SUPER will provide a consistent 60fps on many demanding games like PUBG) at Ultra at 1080p, and even 1440p for some games like Apex Legends. It'll also handle Fortnite with zero issues. For those interested in VR, this card will have no problem playing any and and all applications currently on the market.

For streaming, the newly-updated NVENC encoding will offload the task to the GPU with a minimal performance hit using OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) while providing image quality similar to or better than x264 Fast quality.

Case

All of our components are housed in the Cooler Master MasterBox NR600. This case features a clean design and a large side window. It includes two USB3 ports, a mesh front panel for excellent airflow, and a number of cable management holes and tie-offs to help your build look cleaner.

PSU

For our power supply, we're using a parametric selection of well-reviewed semi or fully modular units, all of which are 80+ Gold certified or above and can provide plenty of power for this build.

  • Notcua is overrated in quality. Scythe Mugen 5 Rev B, Windale 6, Many of the Thermalright coolers (not Thermaltake), few others that're out there
  • RAM isnt 3600MT/s despite budget? It's only a bit more
  • SSD has no DRAM due to the parametric filter not supporting it. Pick a decent amount of SSDs that're actually good for the filter
  • PSU filter is bad. GQ is pretty meh in quality, G3 has OTP/OPP issues, Focus Plus has bad overload voltage ripple issues, prime ultra being the only decent option there. Though, a stock 3950x and 2080Ti can run off good 550w PSU so 750w is a waste of money. Those parts OCed would be fine on a 650w thus you dont need the 750w.

Based off of noctua's website, it will include an AM4 mount now if you buy new. If you buy a used one off of ebay for example, it may be the case where it does not include it. If it does not come with an AM4 mount, you can purchase a free upgrade kit on noctua's website (https://noctua.at/en/nm-am4-mounting-kit) then going to the form.

Hello, I am planning on building a new PC, and this build seems the closest to what I envisioned. I always used AMD GPUs, but wanted to go with Nvidia this time, because of more reliable driver software and the possibility of getting an Nvidia Shield (not sure if I'll need it yet). Basically, my PC will be used for in-home streaming - PC in one room, streaming games/movies to an Android box (maybe Xiaomi Mi Box S + Steam Link if it's up to the task, but if there's too much latency or other issues, Shield and Gamestream/Steam Link) in the living room. I have a few questions concerning this build:

  • The price for 2070 Super is 630 USD in my country, which seems a bit much for my occasional gaming habits. Is the regular 2070 (not Super) enough for the aforementioned use case? I'm guessing NVENC is one of the important things concerning streaming, and it seems to be supported on the base model as well.

  • Comparing this with the Intel build, this one has 404W estimated wattage, but the recommended PSU is 750W, while the Intel one has 434W estimate and 550W recommended PSU. Why is that?

  • I am a programmer, but I use company's laptop for work. However, from time to time I will use this machine as well. It isn't a priority, but it's also one of the reasons why I'm still not sure should I go with Intel or AMD. From what I've read, Intel is better at low-core tasks and gaming, while AMD is better in many-core tasks. If I go with Ryzen, I'm guessing I could also use the stock cooler (I would not OC), so that would be around 150 USD cheaper where I live. Is Intel worth that price difference?

  • Anything else I need to keep in mind while building for in-home streaming? Any advices concerning that, or recommendations for the Android box are also welcome. Thanks!

Hi, can someone help me with building a pc? I was looking at this one but was wanting some other opinions if it’s good or maybe parts I can add/swap out. I want to be able to get 240 frames atleast on low settings on fortnite while streaming. Currently my monitor is 144hz but I case of future upgrade. So I want to get those frames while streaming. I plan on streaming everyday full time as well as doing some video work for YouTube videos. Yes on a budget but also don’t want flaky/sketch products but good quality.

I was looking into building a similar rig to this, with the only differences would be that I would be going with a Ryzen 5 3600x, different amounts of ram and memory, and possibly a RX 5700 XT as a replacement for the 2070s. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a possibly better CPU cooler and I was also wondering if the power supply would be good for what components I'm going with or if I should go with a less powerful one. Thanks all!

  • 1 month ago
  • 1 point

I would go for it. Just note that some drivers for Navi GPUs can be spotty and can result in unreliable performance in video cards until the drivers are fixed. 750w PSU should be more than enough. I would keep the CPU cooler or at least go for the chromax.black version if it fits your build better, as noctua coolers can be ugly with their brown color scheme.

This price is good. But is that including delivery? Is it worth it to buy online or from a store, because of delivery costs?

  • 1 month ago

Looking at the links that this guide gave, there is only one shipping cost, and its only about 4$ for the 2TB hard drive. Because most of the parts are coming from Newegg and Amazon, most of the shipping cost is going to be covered 90% of the time on many builds. I would go with just buying these parts online because it's easier and you don't have to track down where everything is being sold. Also, PC components are generally cheaper online.

Get a B450 instead of an X570 for a 3600, there will be no difference, even when overclocking and you're not taking advantage of the PCIE get 4 anyways. Find some 3600MHz RAM, the Corsair Vengeance LPX and G Skill Ripjaws generally go on sale for $130. Different SSD, this one doesn't have a DRAM cache. You could even go with an NVME drive. Power supply does not need to be 80+ platinum, gold or even bronze is enough. Find one for half the price, a 650 or 750W gold unit.

  • The cooler is just unnecessary , even for the 3700X , you can easily OC with stock cooler
  • A RTX 2070S is just a RX 5700XT overclocked , but a R7 3700X is not a R5 3600 overclocked

Your part list decreased both performance and compatibility. The motherboard is not guaranteed to be compatible which is why we have specifically gone with X570 for first time builders. The CPU performance increased but for games it will not change your FPS and using the stock cooler will be inferior to the noctua on the 3600. You are also spending almost twice as much on an SSD that will have zero practical performance difference in a gaming/streaming build.

You are free to criticize but please keep it polite and constructive.

Hi manirelli I am trying to help my son build a gaming pc is this a good pc or an Intel I have looked at both don’t know which is better. He up for spending up to £1200 on the PC obviously doesn’t want to go overboard but wants a good working PC I see some got to £3000 maybe more. I think this one of the Intel would be fine for him what do you think. Forgive my ignorance on this matter

It depends, AMD is “allegedly” going to support the am4 platform for at least 2020, so it depends if he’s looking to “future proof” his build

For gaming/editing/recording on the same PC i’d recommend the r5 3600 (15000 kb/s fast) or the r7 3700 (up to 35000 kb/s fast or so)

The r7 3700x has export times similar to the i9 for less money (even in hitfilm, which is mostly 4 core dependant)

But for gaming/streaming at slightly lower bitrates (12000 kb/s or lower on veryfast or fast) i’d say the intel i7 build is better

Your opinion depending on who is looking regarding the RX 5700 vs 2070S is just straight-up wrong though. They are not equilivant in all things and definitely not just an overclocked version of the other. The cooler sure. NVME is not necessary at all. Almost double the price for extremely minimal benefit. I agree the PSU was overkill. Motherboard change is fine.

  • mobo is worse. Worse sound chip, network chip, only one M2 slot, less PCIe ports, no PCIe gen4 for future use, etc. Tomahawk sucks and is overpriced. Get the b450 TUF Pro or Aorous Pro WiFi
  • GPU lacks NVENC, and has driver issues
  • PSU quality isnt that great. Not all about the wattage and rating. Few things to note: voltage ripple/regulation, transient response, protections, capacitor quality, fan quality, noise (from fan or coil whine), operating temperature, hold up time, inrush current, efficiency, and solder quality So all that for a better CPU and a slightly worse GPU? In fact in gaming this perform worse as the CPU barely adds anything while the GPU loses a small bit. However the loses are bigger then the gains. Not to mention streaming would be worse due to lows suffering from CPU encoding and average FPS also going down, esp on GPU heavy games

Driver issues causing black screens randomly and needing a force restart. Or BSODs. Or stuttering. Or fans not being controlled properly. Few other things I think too. For fixing you kinda need to install random drivers until it hopefully works. Such as installing the older 2019 drivers or the newest 2020 drivers. For the most part that fixes it however issues can still come about afaik

Choosing an Radeon over GeForce is a bad bad choice for a streaming build. NVENC is key in a streaming build because it offloads encoding work to a dedicated encoding chip. current gen GeForce NVENC is over 150% faster than AMD VCE and nearly 90% faster than intel quick sync. Also with current driver issues on AMD, a streamer would NOT want to have a game crash mid-stream. GeForce is king for Streaming builds on a budget.

While I'd agree on that, currently AMD drivers for the Navi GPUs is unstable and certain games when updated are completely incompatible (Rajang update for MHW for example as of Feb. 6th 2020 completely crashes Radeon GPUs) I'd totally recommend the 5700 XT but only when the drivers are stable.

  1. Swap the 3600 for the 3700x, more cores and threads for streaming and video editing.

  2. Swap rams out for a 3600 speed rather than 3200. AMD loves ram speed and 3200 is too slow for AMD.

  3. Swap the 750w psu to a 650w 80 gold/plat. 750w is nice but you wont' be utilizing all of the 750w so you would be wasting money down the line, unless you are planning to upgrade to a 2080 or higher.

  4. I would swap the x570 board for a b450 mobo. Since you do not have a PCI-E gen4, there is no point of wasting money on a x570 mobo.

Wouldn't you need the 750w psu? The Ryzen 7 3700X would increase the wattage, and I thought you were supposed to get around double the estimated amount.

  • stock 3950x max power consumption is 145w
  • stock 2080Ti max power consumption is 375w
  • rest of system is about 70w Totaling 590w at peak. However even in heavy workloads the average is still lower then the peak. For example the CPUs max power consumption happens at a hard workload when using 10 of its cores. But when using all cores power consumption is 20w less then max (125w). The 2080Ti max wattage is the <50ms peak and average max is about 350w - 360w. Thus max peak is 590w and max sustained is about 560w. Any decent PSU can support 10% over what they say while maintaining good perf every where else (voltage ripple/regulation, transient response, noise (from fan or coil whine), operating temperature, efficiency). So a 550w can do 600w sustained (let alone peak, being higher). So 750w is completely over the top for anyone on a single CPU/GPU setup.

What PSU would you recommend for a build like this?

  1. Bitfenix Whisper M 650w+, Bitfenix Formula Gold 650w+ (lower models differ in quality thus the min cap in wattage)
  2. Corsair RMx/RM, Phanteks AMP
  3. Corsair CX
  4. Rated from best to worse. Options on PCPP for Bitfenix are meh so best to check the sellers site (Newegg, Amazon, B&H, etc) yourself

You'll either need to select a motherboard with it built in or add a wi-fi adapter to your build.

Also, is Bluetooth already supported on the PC build?

It doesn't appear to have BlueTooth capability. With this build, you could get something like this which gives you wifi and BlueTooth for $30. I've used it twice and it has been plug and play with no issues.
