So this is the PC I use now and have had for several years, an iBUYPOWER i-series 301
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Cooler: Zalman CNPS 80F (replaced original with same) Mobo: MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) GPU: AMD ATI Radeon R7 200 series Ram: DDR3 8GB 800mhz CASE: ARC 647 PSU: Insignia 450W (recent upgrade from the 400W that came with it) HDD: 232GB Seagate & 465GB Toshiba
A while ago I won a giveaway for a Ryzen 5 1600 w Wraith Spire cooler, still new in box, which I'd like to use. I just bought a new ramkit (then kind of hesitated on the rest): Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 3200Mhz 288pin For motherboard I was thinking ASUS Prime B450-A/CSM
I might need a new case...the front headphone socket is acting kind of funny - only sounds right if I turn the jack just right, so the audio card might be failing (I know it's not the headset). For GPU I was thinking an RX 580 but that may be more than I want to spend. I know my storage sucks, but I'm not really concerned with it right now. I really want to figure out Mobo/ram/case/gpu situation. I have the ram, may be willing to return for something better suited to this solution. Budget not that big, ~$90 if I return ram, 80-100 for mobo, maybe $150 for gpu and if I need a new case I'll probably go up to $60 but I've seen a couple decent options for 40-45.
and yeah I stream on Twitch if that helps decide the situation. Thanks for any help.
