Depends on the prices. If the rx cards are not overpriced, I would get one. I mentioned the 1050ti so that you had extra money to start saving up for your next upgrade. If a rx 470 costs a little more than the 1050 ti, I would get.

I would upgrade your gpu first. I don't know about the availability of amd rx cards in the Philippines, but they are sold out currently in the us. I would get a cheap gtx 1050 ti, saving money, and then use it with your i3 until you have enough money to do a ryzen 5 upgrade.

I think it is worth it for the price compared to an i5 just because of the extra cores. Looking at your part list though(correct me if i'm wrong) shows that you have a r9 270x . You might have to upgrade your gpu depending on your needs.

It would provide a small increase in performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNAJ8xS_ktE If you want to Upgrade, I would get a ryzen 5.

This would be more than enough for his needs. I could be upgraded if/when he got older. :)

I think you should change the monitor to something cheaper. Then you could get a 80+ gold psu with higher wattage. Other than that, It looks good to me.

I think so, the vddcr voltage is set to 1.267. Maybe its just monitoring wrong. Gonna boot into windows soon and check using other programs to make sure.

How do you get such good fps in ark? I play with a i5 6500 and a 980ti and get 40fps on epic :(

Have you created a fan curve yet for the gpu? Sometimes at stock the fans don't even turn on until a certain level, so higher idle temps. Besides that, +1 for the core v1

If your power supply is mounted with the fan drawing air in from the inside of the case it might overheat some. Usually, the psu is mounted upside-down with the fan drawing air from outside. Hope that helps :)

The rx 470 is about 10% weaker than the 480. At 1080p, you could run those games almost maxed out a t 60fps or better.

If you are going to buy a i5 at your budget, a rx 480 would work fairly good. I would recommend a 8gb model at about $220

They are about the same. I would get the i7 for video/rendering work, but the i5 6500 for average use/gaming. You wouldn't benefit that much from the i7 in games, plus the i5 is newer.

Thanks, here is what he said "I purchased the i5-6500 on 11/17/2015, so I assume I’ve had it installed since probably around 11/23/2015. I had the 6500 installed just the other week, never had any issues, works great. I’m only selling because I got an i7-6700k on black Friday along with a new graphics card (I’m also selling an r9-290 tri-x). Unfortunately, the only way I can test the processor in front of you is for me take my i7 out and put the i5 in, that’s too much of a hassle. There’s really no need to worry, the processor works great, as long as you install everything correctly and use thermal paste, you won’t have any issues. As for the price, I respect the fact that you’re 13 and saving up money to build your own computer, that’s really cool, I didn’t build my own computer till I was 20 lol, so I’ll lower the price to $140. That’s the lowest I can go. My name is Chris btw, let me know anytime if you’re interested, take care."

So I should have a way to test it immediately? I don't want to buy the rest of the build after and find out it is broken.
