Well not mega bucks, the "bang for the buck" comes to mind!

If it's a gaming upgrade, put your money into a new GPU, liquid cool and overclock your current CPU, and double your memory.

Well it would be a Gaming Upgrade as well as for Video Editing.
I just want to keep up to date on the goings on in hardware.


I've had the build now since 2011/2012 so Its more or less time to consider some action. I'm thinking of sticking to Intel, but have heard good reports with the AMD Ryzen.

Every build or upgrade needs cash. You need to tell us how much or we're literally wasting our time.

I don't know of an exact price I'm sorry to say.

Probably £300-£400 or somewhere along those lines?

OK well that pretty much rules out Intel completely. The problem is that you are on DDR3, that is a real kick in the pants because you need to buy an adequate amount of DDR4. However, I will try my best.

£179

https://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Ryzen-1...rds=ryzen+1700

£107

https://www.amazon.co.uk/STRIX-B350-...s=strix+b350-f

£100

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/team-...my-087-tg.html

Total of £386. That is where my cash would go, and then I would upgrade the CPU later.

At £400, you can afford either the CPU and mobo OR the GPU. If your video editing software uses the GPU for hardware acceleration, put the money into that and you also get to benefit from gaming on it.


This will get you a 120mm AIO cooler so you can overclock your CPU, 16GB of DDR3-2400 memory (in blue, so it matches your board) and a GTX1060 6GB which is the perfect 1080P gaming card with plenty of CUDA cores for video encoding.
