So i've been looking for a new pc for the last 1½ months now and concluded that im about ready to buy one. ALTHOUGH im not sure between these 2:

1:
GTX 1060 6G
i5 8500 6core (4.1ghz)
16 ram
480 ssd
PRIME H310M-K

2:
AMD Ryzen 5 2600x - 4.25 ghz
gtx 1060 6gb
asus prime a320m-k
16 ram
240 gb

the difference is 61 bucks but im really not sure which one to buy. what do you guys think?

I'd highly recommend getting an i7 processor instead of an i5, depending on what you want to do with your computer.

Are you planning on using the SSD as the boot drive then having another drive for storing games/documents/etc.?

i dont need a i7 i think its kinda overkill with the games i play.
I dont need anything else than the ssd since i only play games, nothing else. and i dont have any heavy games that requires that.


But please elaborate why i need a hdd as storage?

you don't really need an i7 at all if you primarily intend to use the PC for gaming purposes. If going for a budget build, going for an i5 instead of an i7 is a great way to save money, allowing for upgrades in more important areas.

fairly common thing to do is get a decently sized SSD (240GB) and use that for windows, as well as games that are heavy on loading (such as Diablo for example, WoW depending on the content you do), while getting an HDD (say, 1TB) to use for general storage, which will include stuff such as pictures, videos, general documents, games that don't require fast loading times (such as CS, LoL, etc.)

Yeah to be honest it will be worth investing into an i7 as soon as you can. Find some cheap ones on Newegg, but definitely Intel. I’ve had better experience with them. AMD parts always broke 4 months in, slowed my pc down a shit ton after a few months, and will burn out easily. Intel ftw.

The i7 does really depend on what you intend to do. I have one, but I often write multi-threaded programs that are quite intensive, so you probably don't need one.

As Neezon said above, it's fairly common to get a smaller size SSD to store your OS on to improve boot time, and have other HDD to store things such as games and programs on. If you have the money to spend on a fairly large SSD, then by all means do it. I run with a setup like this currently, although my SSD also has a linux partition on it.

So to Conclude on this:

Intel>AMD

Storage room is a good idea

I7 insted og i5


My current pc is gtx 670 or something. From 2008 or so. So everything is a major upgrade Never the less :)

Thanks for the help :)
