Been sitting on my hardware since mid 2013, been itching for an upgrade for a while now and have just been waiting. Today I decided it was time and ordered all the parts.
I’m switching back to amd after many years, the new ryzen cpus are great for the money, and I want to rid myself of the proprietary nvidia drivers. One downside, I own a gsync monitor (nvidia only) so I’ll be giving up some smoothness in games when at lower framerates (freesync for a future monitor upgrade).
My current specs
- i7 4790k 4c-8t (on water)
- gtx 780ti (on water)
- 16G ddr3 @ 1866Mhz
- asus z97 mark II
- 480G sandisk ultra II ssd
- ryzen 7 2700x 8c-16t (will be on water)
- rx vega 64 (will be on water)
- asus x470-pro
- 16G ddr4 @ 3200Mhz
- 500G wd black m.2 pcie ssd
Gonna be re-using many of the watercooling parts from my current build, still waiting on word from swiftech whether they offer AM4 mounting hardware for my water block, if not I’ll just be picking up an EK supremecy.
I don’t really have an overall purpose for the topic, just stoked to get some new hardware after a long time and wanted to share, feel free to post if you’re also thinking of doing an upgrade in 2019
