thanks for this option and your time !
2070 video card and slower ryzen...no cpu cooler ? A b450 MB instead of a X470 ? Also, see the compatibility issues ?

Since I'm still new at this, I understand the much better video card, but are all the other cuts (virtually same $$) make this that much better ?

slower Ryzen...no CPU cooler ?

First off, the performance difference wouldn't be much, and you can see that from that lovely comparison chart below.

In fact an the stock clocked 2700 would be even slower than a stock running 2600X!

And OCinf an 2700 wouldn't make a big difference either.

Secondly the stock cooler will to fine, the is no need to overclock as that's an X processor that runs at high boost clocks out of the Box.

Instead of spending money on a cooler, just upgrade the GPU and this would be the best for getting as much a possible performance out of the build.

A B450 MB instead of a X470?

Why would that make a difference?

Have you mind to SLI two Nvidia GPUs? most probably not. :-P

Also, see the compatibility issues?

That board supports two M.2 form factor SSD drives with either an SATA or PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 interface.


Compatibility Notes

The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with several PCIe expansion slots. When the M.2 slot is populated with a PCIe M.2 drive, four PCIe expansion slots are disabled.

If you install the SSD drive on the M.2 slot #1, non of the above applies.

The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled.

If you install the M.2 SSD drive to the M.2 slot #1, two of the six available SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports will be disabled.

So you have still four SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports available, for connecting up to 4 HDD or 3.5" SATA SSD dives.

I guess that's more than enough.

Of course at the end, it's your decision. The build was only an idea, how you raise the performance even further by spending almost the same amount of money. :)

Awesome !! Thank you for the time and information! I will look all this over and def. consider all your suggestions ! Trying to stay at a budget of $1300-$1350 ! Also, since $$ is tight, hoping to not have to build again for 4-5 years...

Also, since $$ is tight, hoping to not have to build again for 4-5 years...

With the GTX 1660Ti i don't know, but the RTX 2070 is for sure a more future proof GPU.

Especially if you wanna delve into the ray tracing gaming world. :)

! Trying to stay at a budget of $1300-$1350 !

There is also a cheaper build option with an 2600X and a RTX 2070.

There are some limitations with the board. It doesn't support LLC for keeping stability if overclocking, but the 2600X doesn't need any OC anyway.

Also a 8 core processor can also be Oced until a point, especially if you win the CPU silicon lottery.

Bur in general, all Ryzen processors running with stock clocks would not have any power limitations on that board.

So that's just a cheaper build option without any performance decrease, as CPU, GPU and ram stays the same!

very similar to what you suggested....

mark5916 1 point 2 days ago

Yep looks good.

By changing to a cheaper M.2 SSD drive, you can gain $20 more!

Not an expert by any means, however, any thought about going up to the C14 version of the memory?

that looks good, but just trying to keep price down as much as I can.

Understood! Damn budgets!!! ;-)

twa437 submitter 1 point 2 days ago

dats right !

mark5916 1 point 2 days ago

It's not worth spending 65 dollars more, for lowering the CAS to 14. lol

Get a full retail Windows 10 OS, or just save your money.

I don't know, that's only my opinion. :)
