It's been about 6.5-7 years since I built my current PC. I'm looking at keeping as much hardware as I can to keep the price down, or at least spread the costs out over time. Currently I have
Asus ROG Crossfire VI Hero
AMD Ryzen 5 5600
EVGA Hyrid GTX 1080
Corsair Graphite 760T ATX Full tower
Corsair Hydro 110i 280mm water cooling fan.
EVGA Supernova G3 750 watt 80 plus gold power supply
2 M.2 drives.
what I'm looking at upgrading in phase 1 is
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X or AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D
MSI B650 MPG Edge WiFi AMD AM5 ATX Motherboard
And either G.Skill Trident Z5 Neo 32gb or 64gb of RAM.
So, a couple of questions. I've been
I do mostly game with my unit, Tabletop simulator, Paradox games, some other turnbase games. Not really into FPS. I do have one game, Distant Worlds 2, which requires a 12 core processor to run the largest galaxies, which is pushing me to start looking at upgrades.
Any thoughts and comments would be appreciated.
I should note, City Skylines 2 is on my wishlist. Looking at CPU discussions about, it looks like it could take advantage of 16 cores on the 7950X3D.
Also, except for upgrading the video card, and if needed, PSU, I'd like this build to last 6-7 years.
