[SOLVED] Upgrading PC wanna see what yall think.


Aug 14, 2013
I'm mainly upgrading my PC so i can run Star Citizen better. WOuld like what yall think of it or have cheaper idea.

My pc specs-
cpu: Intel I5-3570k cpu@3.4GHz
mobo: ASUS P8z77-V LK
Ram: Patriot Signature 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)
Ssd-500gb Samsung 860evo
Cooling: Hyper 212 evo
Gpu: GTX 1070
Tower: HAF 932 Case
PSU: Thermaltake TR2-600w PSU

Parts I'm getting are:
-ASRock X570 PRO4 AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
-EVGA 750 GQ 210-GQ-0750-V1 80+ GOLD 750W Semi Modular EVGA ECO Mode Power Supply
-G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16D-16GVKC people say this memory is better with ryzen cpu's cause of the 3600 speed. Dont know if thats true.
-AMD RYZEN 5 3600X 6-Core 3.8 GHz (4.4 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 95W 100-100000022BOX Desktop Processor

Dont really want to spend anymore than this. Figured this would be a good start for a mid range Gaming PC, till i get more cash for more upgrades. Just would like to know what yall think and give advice if there is any lol. Buying the parts Tomorrow. Thx to all that respond.
