You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
I am getting ready to build a replacement for my AMD X4-965 PC but could use some input on choices I've made so far. I may reuse some of the old components such as:
Case: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case
PS: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Storage drive: Western Digital Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Video card: MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GD5T OC
(Not sure whether to replace this with a new card or cards or which one(s)
Here is what I have selected so far:
ASRock X370 Taichi AM4 AMD Promontory X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD RYZEN 7 1700 8-Core 3.0 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1700BBAEBOX Desktop Processor
Team Dark Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TDPGD416G3200HC14ADC01
SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 500GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V6E500BW
Two SATA based DVD-RW drives (my old drives are IDE)
This will be a general purpose and gaming PC mostly for Far Cry and Call of Duty titles. Your thoughts on SSD and video card config would be greatly appreciated. Since my case is the size of barn, internal space is no problem.
Thanks for any and all input!
