Hello!

I´ve been meaning to upgrade my old computer in order to be able to play current and next-gen games at max graphics in 1080p, but I don´t really know a lot about computers. I´ve done some reading, but I´m unsure if my build would work (in terms of parts being compatible etc).

Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A RGB Black
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B450-F GAMING, Socket-AM4
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Processor
GPU: ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 DUAL OC
SSD: Intel 660p 1TB M.2 SSD
Ram: HyperX Fury DDR4 3200MHz 16GB
PSU: Corsair RM750 750W PSU

Thanks.

It's a great build! Although I would pick B550 over B450 because that card is PCIe 4.0 and SSDs are picking up. But it's not much gains anyway and you can save money there if you want. The rest is great choice!

I´m glad to hear it! I´ll have a look at the B550 to see if I can fit in the budget.

Thanks!

Buy the memory in a 2X8GB set not a single stick.

Two sticks because it'll run in dual channel. Meaning 8x2 is faster than 16x1.
Here's the Linus link
I was wondering if you could look my revised planned build over for me once again and see if it´s good. I used the link you provided to pick a new motherboard. I have highlighted the two changes I´ve made thus far with italics.

Thanks.

Everything seems well, except the Asus Dual. I don't know about the 3070, but I read some really bad reviews about the 2070 Super, which led me picking Gigabyte Windforce over that, I'd suggest you check the reviews for the Dual 3070 model

Also - not sure about the stock 5600X cooler, but the one that came with the 3600 (personal experience) and 3600X (not as bad as 3600 one) are trash stock coolers. Some reviewers get very low Temps. I do not know how, I saw tons of forums all over the place about high Temps, and was eventually convinced that the cooler is just trash. I'd suggest looking into a good air cooler if you face the same problem - Noctua NH-U12S Chromax is a good choice

Damn, I already secured myself the 3070, but I can still return it so I'll look into it some more like you suggested before making a decision. I will also have a look at aquiring a 3rd party cooler.

Thanks for looking over the build :)
