Question Worth the money?


Mar 27, 2019
I am not quite sure about that cheap psu you got there. I personally would change my cpu to an R5 2600 no-x and overclock it by hand for the same performance. The 30 dollars saved should be invested into a better psu. Like a supernova g2 also from evga.
Yep that would make a good system but here are a couple of changes that I would suggest. I think the Ryzen 2600 is at such a great price that it is a must and it will hit the 2600X level with just a little bit of overclocking. Changed the SSD to a 1TB version...yes it is a cheap one but will do the job and upped the PSU to the Seasonic 550w Focus Plus Gold.

Edit... going to the EVGA GQ 600w Gold semi modular will save you around $16 instead of the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold...
