Hi! I am working on trying to order parts for a Ryzen/Vega build by Black Friday or Cyber Monday. I have a budget of around 13-1400 and I am going to be gaming and probably get into streaming. I may also get a VR headset in the future.
CPU: I have gone back and forth between the 1700x and 2700x. With the 1700x at $150, it's pretty attractive. I also like that I don't have to pay for a cooler that is inadequate for overclocking. On the other hand, the 2700x has a performance boost. On the other other hand, I can go 1700x right now, then upgrade to Zen 2 when it comes out next year.
CPU Cooler: This one looks cool, haven't put much research into a cpu cooler, just been told that I should get an air one.
Motherboard: I don't know a lot about motherboards but, like above, this one looks cool so it's on my list. I am VERY open to changing this because I know very little about mobo's and what's good for which parts. I appreciate any advice.
Memory: This memory looks too good to pass on, I don't care about the price.
SSD: The newest EVO I could find, don't know a lot about the different brand so any advice would be great.
GPU: Have gone back and forth between the Vega 56 and 64 (I have a freesync monitor). At the current prices, the reference Vega 56 just looks too good at 340 to pass on. I am open to any thoughts on which I should get and at what price and from which company.
Case: Back and forth between the Crystal 570x and the Core P5 Tempered Glass Black Edition, although the Core P5 is outrageously overpriced.
Power Supply: I picked a random power supply over 500 Watts. I know about as much as a brick wall about power supplies.
Please comment with any thoughts, questions or concerns. I will respond to everybody. I appreciate your time.
