why do you want to buy a dead end platform? AMD Ryzen is coming on its 4th gen now... It works fine with games and FS2020 is a new game that will definitely support AMD and my guess it will run even better cause of more threads. MS says it recommends Ryzen 7 1700, that's first gen 8 cores 16 threads from 2017.

If i were you, i would stay clear of Intel at this point in time. Also, 1050Ti is quite weak card. Half a year back i listed a PC for Chyo that was Ryzen 7 2700, RTX2060 Super, 16GB 3200Mhz ram, B-450 Strix board(there are better boards, i just like the looks and tomahawk was out of stock) with 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD, case , PSU, full build and it was 1.1K and that system would wipe the floor with what you listed. Note this was half a year ago, now i bet it would be even better and down the line you can upgrade your CPU and GPU to get even more performance. Can't say the same about intel's Z390 tho.

For intel, get an aftermarket cooler, 212Evo is fine, cause stock intel coolers are shit. Actually AMD Ryzen stock CPU coolers are half decent

You do you, its your money. This was just my two cents :)

PS. if you have 9700k now, keep it and enjoy it, its fine. But if you're building a new system, go with AMD. Cause now Intel doesn't look that good.

That 9700i is a great processor, out performed my cpu by a mile: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/I ... 4030vs4041

But Intel is so pricey, that's why I always choose a AMD cpu.

you're comparing sub 200$ CPU to a 350+$ CPU :emoji58: (also 3600X is a 6core/12threads, 9700k is an 8Core/8threads) i wouldn't even go for 3600X right now, i would rather get 2700 for 150$ 8C/16T with a bit worse ICP's and with a small OC it will out perform and/or match in most cases 3600x, this way you save about 50$ that you can throw to the GPU and get a better experience. You can always upgrade to 3950X down the line when they get cheaper in price, thats a fucking 16Core/32thread beast of a CPU :emoji28:

Your 3600X is a better value by a landslide compared to 9700K and do you really give a shit that you get 230fps instead of 260fps? no. but paying 150+$ more for few % in games is not worth it. That's why i said if you have 9700K, you're fine and enjoy it. If you're building a new system, like you did max, just go with AMD :D At this point its more "future proof" and your AM4 socket can support CPU's up to 16 cores and 32threads, Z390 can't, best it can do is 8 cores 16 threads with 9900KS as far as i remember

PS. Stay the fuck away from that dumpster fire of fucking shit userbenchmarks site. Its misleading.

today I changed the fan for my laptop.
I also wanted to change the heat "thing" (the bronze you see in one picture), but the company sent me the wrong one. There is a plate for the gpu missing and the shape is different.

Sorry guys for the late reply and thanks C for the help.

I've been busy lately as I have a test tomorrow but I'll open up a thread I think where we can talk about the build. It looks like it'll be happening in the end lol.

I just need to look at equivalent Intel & AMD systems and see whats the price difference, pros and cons and whatnot. I'll do it ASAP
