PC setup for CSGO+Coding+othergames?
 | 
Brazil taylor4tw 
Hello guys, I'm trying to build a new pc setup but i'm stuck with the doubt about RYZEN IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR CSGO, but still better to all other stuffs than any i5/i7. Is this right? Ryzen 5 1600 or 5 1400 against Intel i7 7700 The VGA would be a GeForce GTX1080 8gb, 16gb ram (isnt 8 enough?) and etc etc...

r5 1600 would be perfect, ryzen is more than enough, and with gtx1080 you can max out all other games at great fps. Go with 2x8gb ram and you're set

Yea, which is simple af, even with stock cooler. Also b350 motherboards are dirt cheap

+1 Ryzen is BUILT to overcloak and it is easy as shit now with Ryzen Master (got Ryzen 3 1300x + 1060 OC 3gb)

I would get 32gb just because of the swag and in case he plays something in 4k or so and has other programs running in the background, 16gb could maybe struggle

I assume you mean GPU instead of VGA. i3 8100 beats ryzen 3's and the i3 8350k even beats the ryzen 5 1600. But I would just get intel i7 8700k if you are willing to spend money anyways.

The i3 8100 does not beat the ryzen 3 1200 at all.. first of all, the ryzen 3 1200 is unlocked meaning you can overclock it, and b350 motherboards are very cheap. when overclocked, the ryzen 3 1200 actually is equal if not beats out the i3 8100. its 110 while the i3 is 120-130, not to mention budget mobos are not even out for it yet. the i3 8350k does beat the ryzen 5 1600 but only when its overclocked and to do that, you can't use the stock cooler. You need to spend at least $100 on a motherboard, plus another $60 or more for a decent cooler to overclock it. for him, the r3 1200 is more than enough

You don't need to spent that much for overclocking, im using a 30$ air cooler with a decent 70$ mobo. My i5 4690k is running at 4.6ghz on air. Since the 4690k OC'ing has become even easier and less hot, since you need less voltage.
2018-01-17 17:55
yeah but in order to overclock with an i3, i need to spend 10-20 more on the processor, 40-60 more on the motherboard, and an additional 30 more on a decent cooler.

You don'T need to spend extra money for a mobo and for a cooler, maybe 10-15€
2018-01-17 20:13
im talking comparing to the amd ryzen one. the amd overclockable motherboards can be acquired for as little as $64 while you need to pay minimum $110 for an intel z370 overclockable mobo. also a 212 evo cooler sets you back $30. Not to mention the extra $80 youhave to spend on the processor itself.
2018-01-17 20:15
Get your i3 then, ill keep my ryzen 5 1600.
2018-01-17 20:34
wtf??? did you even fcking read what I wrote? I am saying that the ryzen is better and that I am getting the ryzen.. im getting the r3 1200 tho cause i dont need need the extra cores
2018-01-17 20:35
dunno if that r3 1200 is good xDD
2018-01-17 20:49
it is, when overclocked, it is just as good as the i3 8100 as long as your gpu is not above a 1060. r3 1200 overclocked with 1050 ti gets 200+ fps easily in csgo on 1080p

What is your budget bro ? If your budget is tight then pick ryzen 5 1600 or ryzen 7 1700, or if your budget is plenty then pick i7 8700k, throw some intel optane and 2x8 gb ram with gtx 1080 and your pc will get faster than you in bed

If u mainly play cs:go i'd suggest you get an i7 8700k watercooled and overclock it. A 1070 ti will do because cs go isn't graphicly intense. It's more CPU based

why u mad, bro? I saw many forums saying that ryzen>i7 for any reasons... but for csgo, intel still ahead
2018-01-12 17:52
if you seriously regard i7 7700 as an option - you're either a fat troll or just plain stupid Hint #1: Coffee Lake i5-8400, the same performance but much cheaper Hint #2: Ryzen Refresh in April, 2018 If you but any 1st gen Ryzen or any Kaby Lake CPU you're either plain stupid or just plain stupid

7700K is an OC beast tho if you get good MB+cooling
2018-01-16 13:02
only 8 threads, no space for upgrade
2018-01-16 13:50
Still you can't say 8400 has same performance when 7700K reaches 5GHz in OC. 2nd gen Ryzen is expected to be slightly better and slightly cheaper, not a huge gap from what I've heard so it's not stupid to go for 1st gen Ryzen especially since the motherboards are compatible.
2018-01-17 13:03
> when 7700K reaches 5GHz in OC To overclock it and not to burn your motherboard at the same time you need a motherboard with proper VRM, while in case with the 8400 any cheap motherboard is enough. Moreover, 7700K without delidding does not reach 5 GHz, delidding requires $$$. > it's not stupid to go for 1st gen Ryzen No it's not stupid and it's also not really smart. The 2nd gen Ryzen might support the max frequency of up to 4.2-4.3 GHz while the 1st gen only supports 3.8-3.9 and rarely supports more than this. Moreover, new motherboards might fix issues with RAM because now you need Samsung chips and nothing else to get your RAM working at frequencies higher than 2933-3066 MHz which pretty much suxx, plus there are troubles with ASUS motherboards when it comes to 2933+ MHz RAM at all, no matter if it's Samsung or not. Taking into account that Infinity Fabric is linked to RAM frequency, you want to have as high RAM frequency as you can.
2018-01-17 14:06
+1 I just wanted to point out that 7700k and 1st gen Ryzen aren't stupid but I agree they're not quite optimal either. If you absolutely need a new PC they're still decent choices (although it's a bit hard to defend the 7700k because of its price compared to 8th gen)
2018-01-17 17:37
Btw, have you heard about Meltdown and Spectre? techspot.com/article/1556-meltdown-and-s.. guru3d.com/articles_pages/windows_vulner.. (look at "Update: The file IO tests have been updated with a new...") I mean, after they patched Intel vulnerabilities, using uTorrent or anything that performs operations with files makes your Intel-based PC freeze as if it was some 20 y.o. PC. It concerns every Intel CPU manufactured before 2018, so watch out and think ten times before buying anything.

ya, sure bro... one point plus to ryzens
2018-01-12 18:22
yeah good luck finding a cheap mobo for the new intel generation... the new gen + mobo combo simply doesnt worth spendind so much money when mobos with compatible chipsets for ryzen are so much cheaper
2018-01-12 18:14
This is correct.
2018-01-12 18:45
1700 or 1800 compete with i7, whats your point?

Intel is better for ganes
2018-01-12 17:55
go for ryzen because the support its up to 2020
2018-01-12 17:50
I own ryzen 5 1600 and its pretty decent, easy 200/300-400 fps.

I would agree with you if I had intel to test it out, but closest I had was an i3 on laptop. Own a ryzen 5 1600 and its pretty fine, but I maybe could agree that i5 and i7 can be => ryzen 5, but needed to test D:

whats ur setup, @OMEGUEZAO? and ur fps? ty

so the conclusion is : ryzen because is cheaper and will have support at least 2020?
2018-01-12 19:39
who told you Ryzen suck on csgo? get a ryzen 3 1200 when you oc it to 4 ghz its more than enough. it beats the i3 8100 and you can overclock it on a budget b350 motherboard as well as stock cooler. intel stock cooler is terrible. Ryzen 3 1200 with a 1050 ti with processor oc'ed to 4 ghz gets 230 + fps easily in csgo.. 1080p max settings

I didnt said it, read the topic again: "but i'm stuck with the doubt about RYZEN IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR CSGO" can u list ur setup and fps here? ty
2018-01-12 18:09
i didnt buy it yet but you can look up benchmarks online pcpartpicker.com/list/z9NBf8 setup includes desk peripherals monitor and such
2018-01-12 18:12
If ryzen is at 3.1 GHz with 1050ti , and you play at medium setting and not 1080p red , how much Fps you probably get?
2018-01-17 17:48
Over 250 consistently. But why stop there? The R3 is meant for overclocking. With its stock cooler, you can easily overclock it to 3.9/4 ghz. With a 1050 ti and the processor overclocked that much, it will easy get 230+ fps consistently on 1080p max settings. The reason some people say that the i3 beats the ryzen when overclocked because in those tests they are using some crazy gpu like the 1070. If you're going to get a processor like the r3, you normally wouldnt get such an expensive gpu. The only drawback with the r3 is it bottlenecks any gpu higher than the 1060, but it doesnt make sense to go for such a cheap processor when you are getting such an expensive gpu anyway. Anyway if you get a r3, just remember to overclock it, that way it beats out the i3 with a much cheaper price.
2018-01-17 17:51
I have a r3 and 1050ti , but I haven't installed windows yet so I am waiting. If I over clock it , do I diminise it's life? Also how hard is it to over clock it? From bios or other program?
2018-01-17 17:55
i dont think you will diminish its life by overclocking it. what chipset motherboard do you have?you need a b350 motherboard for overclocking. you have to do it in the bios menu. it should be easy and you can always youtube it if you are not sure. anyways if you do overclock it, then it should be 200+ fps easily on 1080p high settings
2018-01-17 18:42
I have an asrock b350 pro
2018-01-17 18:50
yeah you should be able to overclock then

hey, im from brazil too, and the coffe lake isnt a good cpu to buy here nowadays, so, to be honest you should go with the ryzen 5 1600 and pickup some 1070 or 1070ti, its more affordable and easier to find here sorry for the poor english
2018-01-12 18:05
With Ryzen 1600 overclocked to 4 Ghz you should easily get 250+ fps in 5on5 game, but on 10x10 DM you will get something like 220+. However Ryzen has better frame times, so even with lower fps game will run smoother than on Intel with higher fps. Don't listen "couch experts" who think that only fps matters. :)

2018-01-17 13:20
why rgb ram? its not worth it unless you really care about looks that much, in which case you should probably upgrade other stuff as well. the heatsink on the intel setup takes away from how nice it looks.
2018-01-17 17:54
I would say 8gb of ram is good enough for gaming right now but in a year or two 16gb will be the norm
