Should throw in an nvme drive and swap the cpu for a gen 2 ryzen chip.
Yeah, I think an NVMe drive is a slight cost increase, but you will then be pushing limits of the drive instead of the interface like you do with some solid state drives.
If you’re not in hurry maybe you could wait for DDR5 and combine it with Ryzen, plus there is a great possibility that new Nvidia GPUs will come out too.
Yeah, if today was the day you were buying, I would say yes, this is a good setup. However, if this is a future purchase…well chances are there will be a better option for the same price point at the time of purchase.
I’d triple check that the memory is compatible with that motherboard. Ryzen also benefits greatly from higher memory clock speeds, so try to get the fastest memory you can for your motherboard.
It is, I found a bundle which includes this motherboard, same ram and cpu in it… Im only getting it sperate from the bundle because I have to get things in pieces when I can to be able to afford it. As for fastest memory ill have a look.
it can take up to 3200 which if I remember right is the sweet spot for Ryzen?
I think 3200 is the best bang for your buck. Ryzen loves fast memory.
