Currently I’m using an Intel based system, my choice of video cards was for both teams, NVidia and AMD but today its all AMD for me.
I have a Radeon Pro Wx7100, this card is perfectly for my CAD design work.
Then I moved from a Nvidia GTX1060 to the new RX 5700XT for playing games.
With this in mind, I’m not looking for Ultra Ultra Ultra gaming performance but decent gaming at 1440p that is okay for me so the new RX 5700XT is perfect for that.
I’m also not looking for a Ultra Ultra Ultra rendering machine and Thread ripper build, my i7-8700K did the job for what I needed for gaming and CAD more then enough, so the AMD CPU should be the same or better in performance.
But now with all the new AMD CPU goodies I want to know what is the best to choose?
Do I need to choose a x570 board so that my RX5700XT and the new Ryzen CPU can benefit from the PCIe 4.0 or is this change not noticeable?
I really just don’t now what to choose, I hope you can help me making the right choice.
And do I need to choose 2 sticks of ram because I saw on several different channels that more then 2 stick will kill your ram performance?
My current system :
Case : Thermaltake The Tower 900
MOBO : Z370 Gaming M5
CPU : i7-8700K ( runs stable at 5Ghz)
RAM : 32GB 2400Mhz ( runs stable at 2800Mhz)
Video 1 : Gygabyte Radeon RX5700XT
Video 2 : Radeon PRO WX7100
PSU : LC Power 1200W Platinum
CPU Cooler : Noctua D-15
Boot SSD : 512GB NVMe SSD
DATA SSD : 500GB SSD
DATA SSD : 256GB SSD
DATA HD : 1TB 7200RPM
DATA HD : 500GB 7200RPM
I need to change my MOBO. CPU, RAM ( AMD version of the Noctua D-15 I already have.)
Is a good x570 board, Ryzen 7 3700X or 3900X and 2 x 16GB 3200 RAM more then enough and /or what do you think I should shoose?.
Many thanks in advance.
