Additional Comments:
Hello, after many years I want to change my PC build. I plan to keep :
  • GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970 - due to the limited time for games, and the fact that I play older games I have enough GPU replacement I leave for an indefinite time later.
  • SSD: iridium pro 240gb (System)
  • SSD: Crucial M550 128 (IDE, project, some games)
  • HDD: WesternDigital Black 1 TB - old but for now it works and is well next year I will start hunting for 1 TB SSD promotions to replace it.
  • Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
  • PSU: Tagan bz series 700w ? - I don't think there's any reason to replace him.
  • Keyboard, mouse, monitor, system
My budget is about 1k USD because of the games I lean more towards Intel i7 9700k although I also consider Ryzen 7 3700x . I'm looking forward to some interesting suggestions, my requirement is 16gb ram.
