Francr PC Update

Post by Francr2009 »

Hi , im planning on updating my PC. So I need some help from you, here is what I plan to get:

Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Image
MB: Asus ROG Strix B550F Gaming
Image
Ram: 8GB X 2 ADATA XPG SPECTRIX 3200
Image
Drive: M.2 ADATA ULTIMATE SU650 240 GB Main Drive | HDD WESTERN DIGITAL BLUE 1 TB 7200 RPM
Image

Thats basically what I need, Im still wondering if i should get an M.2 SSD or a regular SSD , what do u think ?

The idea behind buying the B550 is that later I can update to the newest AMD CPU´s (Ryzen 5 5600).

Im also buying a 1TB HDD so i dont have some many drives, currently I have 1 500 GB HDD, 1 250 GB HDD, 1 120 GB SSD. So I just want to have SSD for the OS and perhaps the 1 TB and the 500 gb . Maybe save the SDD for another 2nd PC.

M.2 is better, cause first off there is no more extra wires. You just plug it in and forget.

Looks like a nice setup, only thing i would change is go with a WD Black series 1TB HDD, its faster and has longer warranty.

If you're not in a hurry, wait a bit and get the R5 5600X. or get the 3600, the prices should come down when 5600X is available

I have another question, on my store the sell both the 3600 and the 3600x version of the ryzen 5, with a price difference of 45 buks. Is it worth that much to pay the difference?? Cause im guessing the X gives around 2% to 5% tops for better FPS or general benchmarks
