Bulding a pc rig - 600~ euros...

Hello summoners (no wait hello twhl) :)
i am planning to build a new pc (finally, actually mine is 7 years old)

can u help me? i want propositions with/without GPU. I might think about building a rig for 600 euros without GPU which i will buy 2-3 months later.

Id go with Ryzen 5 + GTX1060 for your budget.
A 1060 is ~200eu, and i believe its the bare minimum for some "futureproof'ness" and a really good gaming experience now. I'm running one now with a 7700k (what an underkill compared that my rig was 10x the price of the 1060 :D ).

Anyway I recommend AMD now for budget builds because they have come back to screw Intel with low cost, high core count medium-end chips.

AMD Ryzen 5 1500X - 200eu (4 cores 8 threads compared to i5's 4/4)
Asus B350M-A - 80eu

Food for thought if you decide to go the AMD route.

Why the DVD drive ?

i am reading about ryzen 5 1500x. It is much better than i5-7500 when it comes to software and i have been working in blender, gimp and programming but is ryzen good in gaming?
i think that i spend more time in software than games.. :o
well i need dvd drive, i have a lot of backups and games on dvd's :)

It's comparable to the 7500 and way better in multicore performance if you use blender you will appreciate that. Though i have not done a ton of research on it since it is quite new.

From what I've observed in benchmarking videos, Ryzen performs the same or slightly less than Intel processors, but the key difference is that Ryzen is not fully occupied (50-60% only), while the intel ones go to 90% CPU utilization.

I think Ryzen cpus are excellent for multitasking.

Yeah AMD really got back in the game this generation, i have always been an Intel fanboy, but it seems that the tables are at least turning :)
