Guide

Great AMD Gaming Build

Description

Introduction

This PC is designed to deliver high performance on all of today's most popular games without being complicated to build or costing too much. It will run well at high settings on 1080p or higher when playing Fortnite, Minecraft, Call of Duty, Rainbow Six Siege, Apex Legends, PUBG, and more.

CPU

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 provides some of the best bang for your buck. It offers 6 cores, 12 threads, a base frequency of 3.6GHz, and a turbo frequency of 4.2GHz.

This CPU includes a stock cooler, so no additional CPU cooler is required for this build.

If you'd prefer to consider a similar build, but instead using an Intel processor, be sure to check out our Great 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

We are filtering for a 2x8GB kit of DDR4 RAM with a speed of at least DDR4-3200 and a CAS latency of 16 or lower, as Ryzen CPUs scale well with faster memory.

Storage

With Solid State Drives (SSDs) the PC will boot, open programs, and load games considerably faster than mechanical drives.

Since storage needs may differ, adjust the capacity as needed. We recommend at least 500 GB of SSD storage. 1TB typically provides the most optimal storage capacity for the price. We're use parametric filters to incorporate an SSD with at least 960GB of space.

GPU

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is one of the best price for performance cards on the market. The RX 5700 XT 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.

To keep the noise and temperatures down, the filter requires a minimum length to avoid "mini" versions of the card, which prioritize fitting into small builds, such as an ITX case. It also requires a minimum number of 2 fans to avoid "blower" style cards, which usually do not cool the card as well. You can choose to use this filter instead, if you want to include the smaller cards for any reason. Note that smaller cards will be louder or hotter - or both.

Case

All of our parts are on display in the Aerocool Cylon RGB mid tower case. The front of this case sports an RGB strip, while there's a large acrylic window on the side. It includes 1x USB 3.0 and 1x USB 2.0 ports, as well as a PSU shroud and a number of cable management holes and tie-offs to help your build look cleaner. It can also fit full-sized video cards.

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.

The parametric filter selects for the best-priced video card given a set of filter choices. If you wish to purchase or avoid a specific card, you can click on "From parametric filter" to choose a one.

The explanation for X570 is already in the write-up above.

Yeah I feel like a parametric filter for an rx 5700 or 5700xt is a bad idea. Watch any of hardware unboxed (techspot) reviews and you'll see there are some crap cards out there. People are looking to you for advice, not just that you can sort by lowest price. God forbid someone buys an Asus tuf and their gddr6 burns out in 2 months. Not to mention that case is garbage - airflow looks terrible and it has punch out pcie slots

  • 2 months ago

I agree, the only difference is the pcie express slot I'm pretty sure where X570 boards have pcie 4.0, while B450 has 3.0. Makes little to no difference in gaming and only loses like 2-4 fps on some games.

I might be wrong but the 2700x for the cores and the price, I’m not sure the performance per price will be noticeable. I’m also not a gamer but use this for 6 screens of stock charts. Bost clock 4.3 vs 4.5. Same cores 8, $178 vs $373 Love to get your feedback.

You are correct, I was thinking R7. I did find a cpu comparison tool, and compared these R7 2700x to the R5 3600. Looks like the R5-3600 is a little faster for the same price (7%) Good choice.

As a general note for that PSU parametic, change it. Corsair TXM is overpriced for what it is due to Phanteks AMP (same quality from actual PSU reviews). The EVGA G2 has PWR OK issues during power loss. Basically you have a 10ms (made up number for example cuz I dont remember actual number) hold up time for when there is power loss. However voltages drop below ATX spec at 7ms (another made up number). PWR OK drops off at at the 10ms mark. So for 3ms you have god awful voltages that could damage the PC (again, all times are made up due to not remembering the actual numbers). So for standard home use dont use the G2 despite it providing some of the cleanest powers for PSUs. The G3 has OPP issues and lack of OTP. So you are now banking on users not over powering their PCs due to not understanding PSUs and components all too well or that the PSU wont overheat. The Seasonic G series is kinda loud despite the clean power. Also kinda overpriced given the competitors. You should also change the case due to lack of airflow. Change the parametric selection for the mobos to select actually decent cheap x570 boards, same for SSD.

  • 2 months ago
  • 2 points

TUF version of 5700xt is bad. Case has awful airflow. txm gold is the same price as phanteks amp right now which is much higher quality and fully modular. The biggest sin is the x570 for a 3600. Waste of money for features that are not very important ESPECIALLY for gaming.

Ignore the comment about the Seagate HDD from NC. Seagate is known for making HDDs that fail much more easily, and much sooner than other brands. I suggest you get one of two types of HDDs. Either the blue or black one from Western Digital. WD is by far the best brand out there in terms of HDDs. Just remember, you get what you pay for.

Saving 50% on a Seagate is a terrible idea (versus the Black WD), as unlike the WD HDD, the Seagate will most likely fail, and you'll be stuck buying a new HDD anyhow. I have always bought WDs, and none have failed (except the ones from two decades ago, when HDDs were terrible compared to now and had needles and were fragile compared to the ones made now).

As for his comment about raytracing... no one cares about that. All raytracing does is add better visual lighting effects ingame, but unless you are staying in a single place, it doesn't matter. Your eyes cannot really follow what's going on, as you are focused on the actual movement around you: such as enemies, yourself and explosions etc.

As for the SSD, I suggest you buy this one: WD_Black SN750 500GB NVMe Internal Gaming SSD - Gen3 PCIe, M.2 2280, 3D NAND - WDS500G3X0C

It's expensive, but you NEVER wanna skimp out on SSDs and HDDs in terms of durability and performance. Considering that out of more than 1,300 reviews, they have a rating of 90% 5 Stars. I mean, that's insanely amazing. Or if you prefer, 97% with either 4-5 Stars. Or choose the one with the Heatsink if you are concerned about the heat. Not sure a heatsink matters though (as far as I know, it doesn't).

Do yourself a favour and get yourself a Black WD HDD, Black WD SSD NVME M.2 2280 and add a Sapphire Radeon RX 590 8 GB NITRO+ Video Card as your graphics card. Ultimately, you will spend the same amount. I myself got the Radeon RX 580 and I find the specs pretty decent. With a RX 590, you should be more than fine.

Personally, I install the OS, the Adobe Suite (Photoshop etc.) and the AV suite on the SSD. Everything else can go on the HDD. If you prefer, you can also add things like Steam, GoG and the other gaming platforms on the SSD, while placing the games themselves on the HDD.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/QHqPK4 Something similar to this? Would you change up anything else? I am new to building computers and would love some input on any of the items I have listed

I understand the desire for reliability, but there’s no reason to spend $75 on a 1TB HDD in 2020. At that price point, you can nearly afford a 1TB SATA SSD. Combine the money from the HDD with the money you’ve allotted for the NVME SSD and buy a one or two TB NVME SSD instead. They are far faster and more reliable. I’d recommend a series like the 970 EVO or EX920 if you can afford it; otherwise the 660p will suffice.

As far as the graphics card, there’s absolutely no reason to buy a $250 RX 590. At that price point you can either upgrade to the next tier (I would suggest a used 1070ti or a new 1660 SUPER) or just get a normally priced RX 590 like Gigabyte’s FATBOY OC+ 8GB model which performs very nicely. If you slide up to around $320, the GTX 2060 recently dropped its price and is great value. A comparable card for slightly cheaper is the RX 5600XT which you should wait about a month or so to purchase unless you know how to manually update the VBIOS of a GPU. If you’re going to spend even higher, like 2060 super range, you should buy a 5700XT instead. It’s probably the best price to performance card on the market currently, but it’s around $400+. Also, for all graphics cards you should try as hard as you can to stay AWAY, like DO NOT, from purchasing any of the single fan cards. They’re usually not nearly as good as the dual or triple fan cards for cooling and sometimes performance.

For the processor, the 2700X is a better recommendation for video editing. If you can wait and afford it, the 3700X May receive a price cut this summer when the new 4th gen Ryzen chips release. The 3700X would be a phenomenal buy if you can get it at a reasonable price, maybe in the $270 range.

If you end up buying a 3700X CPU I would recommend getting one of the B450 MAX model motherboards. These mobos are specifically updated to ensure they work with Ryzen 5 3rd Gen. Just remember, most mobos don’t come with WiFi unless you specifically buy one that has it.

Also, don’t be afraid to buy a third party/used windows 10 key. I know multiple people who have done it and they got a working key easily with just one purchase. Look up which sites are the most reliable; I can’t remember the one we used.

So let see -mobo isnt bad but x570 is kinda eh. Most people upgrade their CPU every 3+ years which AM4 will be done by then. Getting a basic B450 is probs better -RAM is overpriced for what it is. 3600 CL16 can be got for the same price more or less. Gskill has it. -Seagate vs WD, it depends on the model. Lots of people just say that Seagate is bad without looking at all models. A fair few Seagate HDDs fail more often, but the 1TB and 2TB 3.5" models arent that bad. -SSDs arent the same for failure rate. What you should look out for is DRAM cache and whether it has HMB. Then the controller. Then TLC vs QLC and layer amount. -RX 590 is overpriced (also your list has no price listed). Get the 1650 Super or 1660 Super. -TXM is overpriced. Get either Phanteks AMP or Corsair RM/RMx -Win 10 can be bought for $15

  • 2 months ago

That's not bad at all. I would go with the Ryzen 2700X. I think it's a better CPU, and comes with a nice cooler (top AMD cooler, whatever that means lol), easily modified RGB lighting with the right software, although the cooler is a bit hard to put on, but as long as you correctly slot your chip, you'll be fine. I also suggest this motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard. Both options mentioned above are less expensive, and the mobo allows for pretty nice customization as well. The best suggestion I can give you is to download the software that go with the mobo and chip, as that makes a huge difference.

I like your HDD. If you have more money to splash, you can also get this one (the cache is different): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dGHRsY/western-digital-black-4tb-35-7200rpm-internal-hard-drive-wd4005fzbx

The thing about HDDs is that they are expensive, but since your OS (I would assume) are on the SSD (great choice btw!), the HDD is secondary. As long as the most important things like AV/Firewall (and maybe your fav browser) are on the SSD, then the HDD should be fine for what it's worth. Depending on how much data you access. For example, I always have these things opened: AV/Firewall, MBAM, Steam, Origin, GoG, Plastuer, web browser, Notepad++ plus a bunch of other stuff, including games and AMD and Asus software.

So, if you have the financial means, definitely go with the one with the higher cache. Otherwise, you could always upgrade later. Mind you, I place most of my software (which I use on a daily basis) on the SSD (including Steam, Origin, GoG, uPlay), but access certain things like the actual games from the HDD instead.

Ideally, what you could do would be to get the higher HDD and not pay for Windows 10. If you don't care about the watermark and being unable to change the wallpaper, you could decide to get Windows 10 free, and then upgrade down the line. Which means you wouldn't spend any extra money at this point in time. You would trade off a paid Windows 10 for a better HDD. Just be aware that a 4TB HDD, however, if using MBR and not GPT limits the HDD to 2TB.

Do NOT ever get Windows 10 on a shady website, which is what (I believe) HeiKun is saying. Because those keys could be either stolen or duplicates. Don't risk it. Get Windows 10 from Microsoft directly.

As for the Video Card, I know what HeiKun is saying. He's not 100% incorrect, but but he's not right either. I spent around 200 USD / 262 CAD on mine. I refuse to pay something like 450 USD / 685 CAD for a card. You have a 24 inch screen, right? If that's the case, I would choose a Sapphire Radeon card on special (if possible).

I assume you are in the same situation as me. I love EVGA as a brand (they make the best cards imo hands down durability wise), but the Nvidia brand has definite issues when it comes to upgrading the drivers. I know, I have been there so often like everyone else. Besides, the one you chose is fine. You cannot upgrade ram lol (this one has more than the one he mentioned), but you can always tweak other stuff on it, making his argument null imo.

Sorry for the late reply, I was putting my own PC together lol. Got my video card yesterday.

Yes, this should work fine. If you are video editing, I recommend getting a 2TB Seagate Hard Drive for around $50 in addition to the SSD. If you are more going to be using it for gaming, get a Nvidia 2060 Super. It has a great price to performance ratio and is capable of ray-tracing.

(Ignore the headset and keyboard and mouse because I already bought those lol).

Couple things here. The RAM sucks for the price as Corsair is a bad option for RAM. They usually have sucky memory dies. Get the Gskill Ripjaws RAM with 3600 CL16; then run at 3200 or 3466 with tight timings as Zen+ cant really run 3600 RAM. The SSD is overpriced cuz it's Samsung. Samsung has no benefits from other competitors. They arent more reliable and arent really faster (apart from the 970 Evo Pro). Sunbow x3 1tb is $81 so you end up with 2x more storage for the same price and perf, more or less. The 1660Ti is overpriced and for the same price you can get the 2060 KO from EVGA (once it comes out). If not then get the 1660 Super and save $40 for 1 FPS less. The case doesnt really have that great of airflow and you should probs just get a better case. The Corsair TXM is overpriced and you should get either the Phanteks AMP or Corsair RM/RMx. I also wouldnt go with Corsair fans as they are overpriced. Nor would I go with "gaming" headsets as they suck. Get a decent $50 Audio Technica headset and a seperate mic. The Fifine 669B condensor mic for $30. Totally $80 for much better audio quality.

  • 2 months ago

Well the thing is I already have a steelseries headset so that’s out the picture and the thing is with the sunbow vs Samsung SSD the Samsung has more positive reviews and the reviews on them talk about it being faster than most other SSDs because they are made different believe it or not so that’s why I went with the Samsung, I did previously have the 1 TB SSD by Sunbow but I switched it out and the NZXT case does have bad airflow I have heard that’s but it is nice for looks being sleek and white and same with the Corsair fans to add extra airflow and them being white goes with the look... the Corsair RAM is the best compatibly with the MSI mother board too and has plenty of positive reviews too also that extra touch of RGB which adds 3000% extra power of course lol so that’s why I chose that.. the GPU was the thing I didn’t know about because the 1660 TI can perform but I didn’t know if there was a better alternative especially that can run well with my CPU... back to the SSD I’d rather pay a little less for 500gb and know it’s reliable with its power and durability to be long lasting than a 1TB SSD from a weird company that has like no reviews on it and is cheap

Is it okay to have the fans for cosmetic looks? Because the case has the capability to hold two fans in the front (or a cpu cooler) so I was doing to get two white fans and then move the two stocks fans to the front of the case.. would that all still work?

Sure, but if you are looking for fans to use for cosmetics, I would recommend the corsair LL120 fans or LianLi Bora fans as they look much better in my opinion. Keep in mind these alternatives do cost more too.

What is your CPU temperature? I also have Ryzen 5 3600 but I think the stock cooler is small and not very good. On idle mine is 40-50C and when I'm playing BF1 it reaches a high of 72C. So I am replacing the stock cooler with a better one to hopefully lower my temps by 10C.

There are several issues with this parts list: the case is terrible (acrylic side panel, punch out pcie slots, terrible airflow, the list goes on), not to mention there are much better options for a tiny bit more (Metallic Gear Neo Air was $56-65). Some rx 5700 XTs are terrible so you really shouldn't have a parametric filter for that. There are some B450 boards that support Ryzen 3000 chips out of the box, like the Tomahawk Max, which is $120 and a great board. Not sure how good whatever the bottom-of-the-barrel x570 is going to be.

Hi first time builder. Is this build solid or do I need to change anything? Just trying to play games on high settings 1080p -1440p.

  • 2 months ago
  • 2 points

First of all, definitely don’t grab any of the TUF series cards or the DD. They have awful, cheap, and utterly ineffective cooling. For high 1080p gaming, something like the GTX 2060 or the RX 5600 XT would be great options for about $300. The 1660 SUPER is also a great option at ~ $240. The recommended 5700 XT is a tier above at about $400, but that will get you the 1440p frames you’re looking for. Personally I don’t need anything more than high 1080p frames and possible 60ish fps in 1440p. The cards I suggested will get the job done for that. The used market is also useful; you could go for a used 1070ti which would give you great performance before it gets too old. I’d recommend the new cards over that, though. Also, I might look for a better reviewed case with better airflow. Or, if you’re like me, just blast the fans at 100% the whole time and don’t care because you have headphones on.

Because I don't read carefully. I thought it was a 3200 CAS 19 kit (which would go to 20 maybe 18 on AMD) not a filtered search.

I've updated the part list parametric filter to max out at CAS 16 now to avoid that being an issue in the future.
