Advice for a new PC - Ryzen

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need to get a new PC, with a price range of 1500 - 2000€

I was thinking something like this:

- AMD ryzen 7 1700 or 1700x. 320€ vs 400€

- Nvidia 1070 = 450€

- RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR4. 2 x 16 Gb = 328€

- SSD 500Gb (Samsung 850 EVO) = 155€

- HDD 3Tb = 90€

- Motherboard, Asus Prime X370-Pro = 155€

- Corsair cooling Hydro series /or/ Enermax Liqmax 240= 85€

- 750W = 100€

- A box
 

My biggest doubt is about the proccesor, Ryzen 1700 or 1700x.

Also, I picked a random motherboard, no idea about them.

 

Thanks!

Unless your building for GPU rendering I would drop that card and put the money into your mobo

doubt you will get a 8 slot mobo for that cost...and if your simulating you gonna want the potential to upgrade

you could also get a much smaller SSD just for your OS and put that towards mobo as well

1700 is running very well,  64GB ram on a B350M-A mobo, the machine has frozen up a few times though and not sure if it's hardware or Ubuntu yet. Need the latest bios to use more than 32GB ram.

Thanks, do you need extra cooling with the 1700? Or the one that comes by default is good enough?

Update is that the stock cooler is rubbish for Houdini - for whatever reason the chip is shutting off all the time when simulating as opposed to the Xeons in the MacPro which never shut down. Unfortunately its almost impossible to get Ryzen temps in linux to be absolutely sure that the processor is overheating.
