GPU choice also depends on what monitor is that new one.

1700 is same chip as 1700X, except 1700X has higher clocks. So if you get similarly overclocked 1700 or 1700X, there is very small difference between heat output.

You don't really need watercooler for overclocked Ryzen (unless that overclock is over 4 GHz)

Its very good at video encoding and streaming :D

Does the 1700 have a lower tdp because its the same but just has a lower clock then? If they're both oc'd to 3.8 they would essentially be exactly the same cpu?

 

When you say that new monitor do you mean my samsung 34 inch?

 

Yeah not looking for a liquid cooler i don't think

the ryzen 1700 should run the games well you think (GTA5 PUBG etc?)

1700 is same as 1700x but with lower clocks. On equal clocks they are around same CPU except 1700 is probably chosen to be 1700 because it clocks less.

Whatever is monitor you are primarily going to use.

Ryzen 1700 runs GTA V well even that is 4 year old title, PUBG is still unfinished.

how about 1700/1700x for new games?

i use both monitors, probably use the 40 inch a bit more but it's not actually mine so may have to replace at some point

It will be fine, Ryzen 7 1700 is barely a year old now so it will be good for games for years to come.

Sure its not the best gaming CPU but its still very good at it.

Newer games tend to work even better than old ones because new games generally make better use of cores.

What are those monitors exactly?

thanks, I knew some intel cpus were better specifically for gaming but across the board I read the ryzen was better and I will be using it for everything, not just gaming

Neither of those are good gaming displays so I see no reason to go with GTX 1080 because video card prices are high just now. I suggest you buy something cheap and upgrade when you get better monitor. That saves lot of money.

Hello folks,

 

Apologies for the late reply, had unexpected visitors land after work yesterday  :(

 

as for budget, every time i have specced one on a site it has come to £1700 plus,

 

 

Unless factoring in the cost of Windows and a new screen there is no need for such a budget or any more that 8/16GB of RAM, just be sure that the new MB can handle at least 16/32GB, will put a list together for you after I have caught up with the other threads that I am behind with  :whistle:

"Good gaming display" depends on what kind of display you want (in other words, how much it may cost). Cheap graphic card like Radeon RX 550 would be OK.
