planning on pairing it with this monitor as well - https://www.newegg.com/black-lg-ultragear-32gk65b-b-32/p/N82E16824025965

Just trying to run most general high end games, while being able to watch videos and such on the side at the same time.
Already have a Samsung evo ssd sata 500gb and windows 10. Was thinking of migrating it to the new build as a boot drive with the new ssd for games and general storage.
also already have 1040p 144hz monitor, mouse, keyboard, headphones etc.

let me know if im making and mistakes or i can do anything. Budget is like 1800-2000 usd

A 5800X3D would be better for gaming than a 5900.
 
As an amd guy I’d consider skipping the amd build. If you want to go am4 get the 5800x3d. I say this as someone who has a 5900x

Personally what I think I’d look at for the money though is either the i5 13600k or maybe the i7 13700k and a good board. If you want to save money you could go for a ddr4 board, but you’d probably be saving by getting the i5 so you could even go ddr5.

The other option is am5. I think that Intel 13th generation looks like a good value but keep in mind am4 or LGA 1700 are going up be dead platforms with no processor upgrades. Socket am5 should have more cpu updates in the future but will be more expensive to get into i think.

yea based on more stuff I've been reading online, this comment especially, I'm definitely learning towards intel for CPU at the moment. So would you have any recommendations on a board like you say to possibly go ddr5 now or either in the future if I want to upgrade.

I will let someone else answer that. B660 boards seem popular as well as z690 or 790, but the 6 series boards will likely need a bios update so you want to make sure if you get one of those that it’s got a feature called bios flashback.

That said, I’m actually an amd guy and am sitting on a ryzen 9 5900x system, so I don’t have a need to upgrade to the newer cpus since I feel like for the cost I wouldn’t see much gain. However next generation may be something to consider. But I was thinking on upgrading. If I were to do an upgrade I’d probably go for the 13600k or the i7 since I can still sell my 5900x for close to 300 and I can go ddr4 and reuse my 32gb kit.

Make a list of features you must have on the board.

How many NVMe ports?

How many cards you may want to put in slots on the board?

ATX or mATX form factor?

What type of monitor connection must you have?

How many RAM slots will you need now or in the future?

Those types of things.

Many people, maybe most, would be fine with mATX, with maximum cost 150 to 200.

There are more DDR 4 choices than DDR 5 right now, but I'd probably go for DDR 5 if at all possible. There will be new 13th generation B series boards within a few months, maybe January?

Read reviews of any candidate if possible.
