_KermitYo, I'm looking to build a new PC around a 3700x in the near future and am looking for advice on a build, I've not really been keeping up to date with most tech stuff.
The build will be mostly for games, mainly TF2, Dota, CS:GO and souls games, probably some Destiny 2 which literally maxes my current cpu out lol. I'll maybe play Elden Ring/Cyberpunk too when they're out, but no idea of how demanding they'll be. Aiming to get at least 200+fps in TF2 and at least 150 in Destiny 2, the graphics don't need to be maxed for Destiny though.
I'll also want to stream all these games at some point, which is why I felt a higher core count could be beneficial. It might be a bit overkill, but if the PC is gonna last as long as my current one has done, I may as well go overkill now and maybe get a bit more longevity.
I'll be doing some video stuff as well and will want to render at 1440p60 hence going for the 3700x instead of 3600x just for some more cores to use while rendering. Unless I'm mistaken in how many cores can be used to render videos.
I already have storage (850 EVO) and GPU (RX 480) sorted as they'll be reused from what I have now, will be looking for everything else, including a new case and PSU.
Budget is ~£700
It's been almost two months now since I posted about wanting a new PC built around Ryzen 3, and my own pc is starting to die, so getting a new pc is becoming more of a priority. Any chance prices have settled enough for a decent build to be put together at this point?
