I think the time has come to upgrade from my old 2500k based system to something newer. I will be saving my power supply, rx480 and storage.

As I have parts figured right now

CPU: ryzen 5 1600
Mobo: Asus - STRIX B350-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard

Cooler:https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/prod...lw_d24m_a20pc_r1_masterliquid_ml240l_rgb.html
This keeps jumping in price so I starting to question this but would love to finally do a water cooled cpu

Ram:Team Dark Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TDPRD416G3200HC14ADC01 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-313-711

Nvme.2 for boot drive: WD Blue 3D NAND 500GB PC SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s M.2 2280 Solid State Drive - WDS500G2B0B http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-250-091

Case:https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=CA-S340WW2&c=CJ

Really looking to move out of my original nzxt phantom it’s pretty dated at this point and it’s too big any more for me

Monitor:Acer ED273 Abidpx 27" Curved Full HD 4ms (GTG) 144Hz Widescreen LCD/LED AMD FreeSync Gaming Monitor HDMI DisplayPort DVI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=24-011-165

Ready to move on from my decade old 22in monitor and stay at 1080p so I can at least keep some decebt FPS this seemed to be a good middle ground with the large size I wanted while not being stuck at 40 FPS because my gfx can’t keep up

I think that’s everything I have that I need right now

and the cooler supplied is often good to 3.8 and more and that's about the top anyway.

I questioned that also but didn’t know if the price jump would be worth it going to say a 2600 and then having to go to a 470 mobo that I really won’t need all the features

I’m probably not gonna be looking for huge overclocking just nice decent low temps

Why not go to Ryzen 2 instead?

absolutely. the price is the same for the cpu and there are some really nice combo deals at newegg even with a x470 mb. invest in the latest rather than a gen older proc. the 2600 will come faster out of the box according to techspot.

i would check this combo out. it looks really solid and the price is definitely right.

seeing that combo deal is giving me the itch...lol.

A huge clock for ryzen tops out at around 4.2 from what I have seen on the nets with 4.0 being a very good number.
I have not looked at ryzen 2.

I would suggest getting the 2600X for two reasons. All core boost is around 4.0 GHz +- 50 MHz alleviating the need to overclock and the supplied cooler will keep it under control just fine even up to 4.2 all core from my testing. Use the $70 you save from that cooler and put it toward the CPU/mobo

Also that WD Blue drive is a SATA based M.2 not an NVME based M.2.

Nothing serios C_D , OP said NVMe but the drive in question is SATA and doesn't run over PCIe. Just a poor choice of words on their part.

Yeah not so familiar with all this new tech stuff.
Ended up getting a 500gb mushkin nvme and going with the 2600 and gigabyte combo.
should be a nice upgrade from the old 2500k
