Sorry for the multiple post over the last few days, but I am trying to see how to get the best out of my budget. I have read over the forums and have seen everyone claiming AMD is superior to Intel right now so I changed my build to reflect that. If you see any part or parts that could be better for a streaming/gaming set up I would love to hear. The games I primary play are CoD, Ark, Indie Horror, Apex and such. I know most of these games do not require an overkill build, but I like to be ready for the next step. My last build has lasted me almost 10 years now but its time for a new one. Below is the build I am considering:


AMD RYZEN 7 3800X 8-Core 3.9 GHz (4.5 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 105W 100-100000025BOX Desktop Processor

MSI MPG B550 GAMING CARBON WIFI AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro (AMD Ryzen Ready) 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model CMW32GX4M2Z3600C18

MSI GeForce GTX 1070 DirectX 12 GTX 1070 GAMING X 8G 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card

Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 850W 80+ Gold SLI/Crossfire Ready Ultra Quiet 140mm Hydraulic Bearing Smart Zero Fan Full Modular Power Supply 10 Year Warranty - PS-TPD-0850FNFAGU-1

The 1070 is a great card, but are you in a hurry? I'd say wait for 3060-ti, because you'll pay almost the the same price for 80% more speed and you'll get way more longevity with Ray Tracing and DLSS. The hype of the new cards + the low stock is driving people to buy lower value cards from years ago that are still hitting initial MSRP. Makes sense, but I say wait. Based on speed and new releases, the 1070 should be like $250-300. (RX580s 8GB are reliably ~$200, and 1070 is 30-40% faster),

3700x might be a better choice as effective speed is almost equivalent (1% slower), power draw is much lower (65W v 105W), and is more available at retailers. Comparison below.
