While McChris85 is correct I will answer your question just in case you are curious. Single channel can be worse than having 2133Mhz RAM and dual channel 2133Mhz can be better than single channel 3200Mhz depending on the exact program/game at hand.

The monitor seems good. Its VA, freesync (although your mileage may vary with how well that works since its not a "official gysnc compatible" monitor), and its 144hz. No complaints from me about it.

16gb is ok for ram? i kinda want to get 32 that way i dont need to worry about that till the end

Yes. 16GB is still more than plenty and by the time 32GB of RAM becomes needed this build will be weak and we will be on DRR5 at the very least.

maybe some rgb wont hurt may cost a little bit more but i will enjoy looking at it so it will be worth it to me.

Just a FYI the RAM is RGB, made sure to stick with RGB RAM since I assumed you picked it out for a reason.

i know amd is better bang for buck but intel is what i used in my last pc so i think im just ganna stick with that

Do not choose parts by brand, doing so does you exactly zero favors besides lining some companies pockets. Choose based on your needs instead. For gaming and streaming the 3700X would be a wiser choice.

You don't need 32GB of RAM

The Evo 860 is just awful compared to the competition which consists of NVME SSD's. Speaking of NVME a high end NVME SSD such as the Evo 970 is pointless since it will have literally zero advantage over a lower end one and offers less storage too.

That GPU is crazy overpriced. That is like a $70 card at best brand new. Why a relatively expensive dedicated GPU?

Don't cheap out on the PSU. The Evga has no reviews out for it, its quality and performance is unknown. All we know is that it is rated for 30C which isn't a good thing and not a good sign for the unit.

Unlike most people who make a part list, I included windows in it for you. A lot of people tend to forget that

Its for more power but considering that a single 8 pin EPS is good at least 225W if not a lot more a extra 4 pin is pretty damn pointless outside of extreme overclocking since the CPU will be damaged and have a very short life span if you are pumping that much voltage through it.

Do not buy that case or PSU, both are ancient products. The PSU is very low end and is from 2010 and is very overpriced. The case is from like 2012 and it now comes more than its original MSRP 7 years later and as you can guess a poor case compared to modern competing cases.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Will a GeForce GTX 560 Ti work as a low end temporary GPU for R7 3700X/Strix X570-I (Mini ITX) Setup"

  • 5 days ago
  • 2 points

Background: I have an "ancient" 2011/12 Intel i5-2500K on an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 with 16GB RAM and a GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Only thing I have upgraded on it over the years is adding a second GPU (SLI), migrating OS to an SSD and updating the RAM to what it is now.

I don't play FPS heavy games like MW or Battlefield so surprisingly it was doing great until early last year where it just started to not cut it anymore with any of the newer games (Anno, Jurassic World, Mechwarrior, DCS and similar that I tend to play).So I figured it was time to upgrade especially with MS Flightsim 2020 coming and other great visual games next year. I have been working on putting together a list for a smaller style "console" build using the Silverstone RVZ03 and was planning on upgrading to it in "stages" to not hit my wallet so hard at once.

I know the Strix X570-I Mini ITX board I am planning on using only has a single PCI-E physical 16x slot so obviously my original SLI setup wouldn't work off the bat physically and I am jumping from Intel to AMD so that's a thing also. I just need something TEMPORARY to use until after the holiday's when I can upgrade to the MSI RX 5700XT EVOKE I want or better if something comes up by then in my price range.

Paragraphs!

Yes it will work. Any PCI-E GPU will work in any PCI-E slot. Now for as well depeneds on the PCI gen and if its not a X16 slot or not but for your purposes zero problems. It uses PCI-I 2.0 and the board supports up to 4.0. You only start running into potential performance problems when its the other way around or you limit the bandwidth by using a X4 slot or something (yes you can actually do that).

Comment reply on Forum Topic "An AMD FX-8350 PC for Windows 7."

  • 5 days ago

I've Already bought the FX.

Return it or sell it or just straight up don't use it. You do not want this CPU, trust me. I've used the bulldozer architecture before and got locked onto a awful platform and regretted it and this was back when it was a bit more relevant in 2014.

I've been given Ryzen Build's too many times.

That's becasue its the way to go.

I like Windows 7 and refuse to use Windows 10.

Why? Windows 10 is all around superior and support for Windows 7 is ending in a few months so you would have to upgrade to Windows 10 regardless. That is unless you want to be a test subject for the holy hell is going to open up when they stop issuing security patches and vulnerabilities get found, you would literally be unable to connect your PC to the internet ever in a few months if you want to be safe. MS is really twisting your hand on this, you have no choice but Windows 10 or going the Linux route.

A Ryzen 5 1600 is trumped by an FX-8350. - cpubenchmark.net/compare

Uhhh its not according your link....

https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/AMD-FX-8350-Eight-Core-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-1600/1780vs2984

Even the FX 9590 is worse according to it.

On top of it passmark is a poor website on top of that heavily favors core count for its multithread workloads.

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-1600-vs-AMD-FX-8350/3919vs1489

Userbenchmark is probably the most accurate synthetic benchmark out there when it comes to comparing performacne and the expected difference in performance when it comes to gaming. The 1600 is about 50% better than the FX 8350 when it comes to gaming. It blows the doors off of the FX 8350 in multithreaded workloads which isn't surprising in the least bit given that it has SMT which gives it 6 cores 12 threads vs. the "8"/4 cores 8 threads on the FX 8350 and the vastly superior architecture and also blows the doors off it when it comes to single threaded performance to.

Even a 1200 is a lot better than it.

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-3-1200-vs-AMD-FX-8350/3931vs1489

The FX 8350 sits right between the dual core 200GE and the 1200 and it should be priced a lot lower than the 200GE given the very dated platform it is based on.

Do not give me any negative feedback about the FX. Thanks - FX_8350_

You're gonna get feedback about the FX CPU, its what friends do. Friends don't let friends buy FX CPU's. There is zero reason to buy a FX CPU in 2019. It is based on architure that dates all of the way back to 2012 which is nearly 8 years ago. In 5 years it will be teenager...The FX 8350 is crushed by the 1200. Hell the FX 9590 is what is competing with the Pentium and 1200. At one point in time even AMD gave up on the FX CPU's and used Intel CPU's for their GPU demos since even they know that the FX series were not up to par. There is much more to CPU's than just cores and ghz. $187.00 is a basically a scam for a FX 8350. I wouldn't pay more than ~$30 USD for one given the performance and dead platform which leads to me to my second point. The platform is dead, you have zero upgrade paths. It still uses DRR3 RAM too so upgrading will be expensive. Also it is lacking in modern features such as NVME support. Also lastly VRM's are very important for FX CPU's, your board would literal catch fire if you tried to overclock on it.

Please do not buy it. I am begging you. Get a modern CPU instead.

WAY too much for that GPU. You can get a RX 570 for about that much.

Why Windows 7 instead of 10?

however in gaming you wont notice a difference in performance, the main part where overclocking shines is with Workstation stuff like video editing or animation, also it let's out an unnecessary amount of heat

That is absolutely not true what so ever. Increasing clock speeds can increse your FPS and really increase performance in anything that uses the CPU.It does not let a unnecessary amount of heat, the CPU only draws how much power it needs. Its not just drawing power for the hell of it.

You should replace not becasue you had a dedicated GPU now, its fine to have a dedicated GPU and integrated graphics on the CPU, but becasue the 2400G isn't really that powerful of a CPU despite having SMT (due to how it was cut down). You will see a healthy jump in FPS with something such as a 3600 but since you are streaming I would go with a 3700X instead. Although a 2nd gen 2700 isn't a bad idea either given its price. It won't be as good as the 3700X but its nearly half of the price.

Owners of this PSU are encouraged to share their experience with it

They actually should be the last people you want to hear from since consumers can not review PSU's. They are one of the very few parts that consumer input is generally worthless on since there is no easy way to test it unlike a CPU, GPU, case, etc. Consumers just can't simply review a PSU since it requires opening it up and taking it apart, extensive knowledge about electrical engineering and PSU's, and having expensive equipment to test performance. Its why most sites and channels either half *** PSU reviews at best or don't do them at all. The reviews that matter are professorial reviews from sites like Tomshardware, HardOCP, Techpowerup, Jonnyguru, and really any site that at least tests ripple, voltage regulation, and opens the PSU up to examine it.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/why-99-percent-of-power-supply-reviews-are-wrong/

This is more geared towards websites but it applies to consumer reviews too.

This is everything Tomshardware does to review a PSU.
