I’ve been using my old PC for a long time (AMD II X4 Phenom 945 +16GB RAM+and SATA SSD+Radeon HD6670). It still works like a charm. Since this is a PC for work, there were no speed issues.
But more and more it started to be used for more intense tasks like machine learning that require more processing power. So I slowly started building a new system. The budget for it is tight, so this is gonna be somewhat a hybrid build with some old parts reused.
The main upgrade is going to be a motherboard+RAM+CPU. Since it is a budget build, I decided to go with Ryzen platform.
So far I have ordered MB and RAM:
MB: MSI B350 TOMAHAWK ARCTIC, AM4, 4xDDR4, 2xPCI-Ex16, 4xSATA3 ,8xUSB3.1
RAM: Crucial DDR4 2x8GB 3000MHz CL15 DR x8 Unbuffered DIMM 288pin
Still deciding with CPU, should I get
AMD Ryzen 5 1600
AMD Ryzen 7 1700
The price difference is around 100€.
Additionally I will upgrade main drive to Samsung SSD 960 EVO NVMe M.2 250GB 3200/1500MB/s, V-nand which will be much faster that my current SATA SSD drive.
The GPU, case and supply will stay same and might be upgraded in future upon request.
Will keep updated when build will be finished.
