currently i have a i7 2600 with no mobo but a power supply,cpu cooler,gtx 1050 ti and im wondering if i should either buy all the parts left needed or save for a ryzen 2600x plus motherboard and then buy the missing parts compatible with the ryzen system

So you're looking at DDR3 + compatible MB or 2600X, MB + DDR4?

DDR3 should be cheap enough, but finding a motherboard for the i7-2600 is where it'll likely get tough.
The i7 is fine, especially paired with a 1050TI..... but all depends how much a MB+DDR3 is going to cost you.
I'd say if you could get those for ~$50, I would go that route, personally.

i can get like 8gbs of ddr3 and ddr4 for around 20-30 in england so thats easy enough its just hard finding a motherboard for the i7 and wasnt sure if i should wait because the ryzen has more life left in it but id say the ryzen plus mobo plus ram would be like £230 whereas intel mobo and ram would be like 120 but with both builds i still need to get my other bits like case,keyboard,mouse
