Finally looking to upgrade my 2500K..
Six years later.. i'm finally going to put my baby down and rebuild, it's been rock solid at 4.5ghz on a basic $30 cooler since the day I got it.
Not having built a PC for myself in six years i'm just a BIT out of the loop on things, if I could get some advice on which way to go with the below pieces I would really appreciate it. I will list the things i'm re-using.
I see a lot of talk about Ryzen, but I have no idea what it means. I'm guessing this is the new enthusiast chip and I want one but which flavor is the sweet spot and do I need to overclock it?
I'd like to keep the budget under $1K but i'm flexible, there's no reason I should need to go over that keeping my GPU.
GPU: MSI GTX 970 4GB
SSD: Samsung Evo 1TB
CPU : Need
RAM : Need
Any advice is super appreciated - thanks
