New one, but of course I'm looking for future upgrades. My current budget is roughly $2k, so after this purchase I'll be broke for a while hence I'm asking for more suggestions.Is it to assemble a new computer, or to upgrade it on the basis of the original one? How much is your budget?
These are from a local store, it's near impossible to purchase something online where I live, but yes I can wait for June and hopefully have Ryzen 3 available where I live.Where are you getting these prices from? What currency?
If you can wait and see how Ryzen 3 does, I would recommend it. But if you absolutely have to build now there are options.
There are several points in this system that can be improved based on the first two questions.
That's interesting. I'll have to educate myself a bit more regarding these Ryzen builds. Thanks a lotHave you considered building a Ryzen based rig?
That would cut your cost by almost 1/2 for basically the same performance.
And if you were gaming on a laptop, the jump to a Ryzen 5 2600 OC'd (or better CPU) would still be a Huge improvement for you.
I personally chose a Ryzen build when I upgraded my MB, CPU, RAM and GPU last NOVEMBER. I only spent $600 vs the $1000 or more I would have spent on an i7-8700 upgrade.
Why don't you say where you live?These are from a local store, it's near impossible to purchase something online where I live, but yes I can wait for June and hopefully have Ryzen 3 available where I live.
