I'm looking to get rid of my old gaming pc and upgrade to something quite abit more powerful, I've been watching some videos over the past week or so and this is what I've settled on in the end.

The PC will be mainly used for gaming and streaming a variety of different games.

Any advice is welcomed. Thankyou

I'd be waiting for a week. Zen 2 CPU's are available to purchase on the 7th, Navi GPU's on the 7th also, and NVidia's RTX "Super" cards will be available on the 9th I think.

Zen 2 IPC increase and clock speed improvement is worth the wait and extra cost IMO.

The RTX 2070 Super makes the vanilla 2070 pretty much obsolete as it's the same price, but closer to RTX 2080/GTX 1080Ti performance.


So, your budget is £1600? Is that just for the PC?
If not, what else do you need?
Do you have a monitor?
If yes, what monitor? If not, what is your budget for the monitor and PC, and what kind of monitor are you interested in?
What kind of games will you be playing, and what will you be streaming? Will you be using the system for anything else?

£1600 is just for the PC I already have dual monitors and keyboard, mouse, headset etc from my old setup. Tbh I want an all round set up as i play many different games aswell as stream them but if i had to say anything i tend to lean towards FPS games mainly

the set up is nice. Although I would look into getting the new ryzen 3k series cpu instead of the 2700x because they just released and the specs on the 3k series and it is just nuts for the price, as well as a brand new motherboard that was released with it but a good AM4 should be just fine

heres a vid showing just how nice these new cpus are

Need to know what monitors you're using.
