new ryzen build - motherboard choices?


Recommended Posts

ultimate99

Specs: 2700x (will upgrade to 3900x/3950x in the future), 32gb 3200 ram, 1 tb nvme ssd, vega 64 nitro+ gpu.

 

Now for gpu, not sure if I should go for a x570 or x470 motherboard. I like the wfif 6 and bt 5 in the x570, that's it.

 

x570: gigbayte master or asus crosshair hero viii (wifi)

 

OR

 

x470: asrock taichi or asus crosshair hero vii (wifi)

 

Thoughts?

x570 had better options than x470, such as PCIE 4.0.

Why are you getting the Ryzen 7 2700X now instead of the Ryzen 9 3900X?

Get mine! :D

 

GIGABYTE X470 AORUS GAMING 5 WIFI

 

Has RGB lighting, too :)

 

x570 is better, yes, but more expensive, and fewer choices, too..

Well, I hope you got it for less than the price of the Ryzen 5 3600 because, in many ways, Ryzen 5 3600 is a much better processor.

Sort of boils down to budget.  I know you said you'll be upgrading to the the Ryzen 3 series ... but will you...really?  By time you burn the "new" off of this build we'll probably be talking about PCIe 5 and Ryzen 6 series (if you get my drift).

 

Anyway, the x470 Tachi I see for about 160 bucks (the x570 version is $290) which seems to get really good reviews.  The ASUS Crosshairs are in the $290 (vii) to $360 (viii) range...the Gigabyte Master also being $360.  Just not sure what would justify the extra ~100 bucks over the x470 series when pairing it with a 2700x.

 

Based on all of that ... and I'm assuming you are looking relative low cost but fast build ... I think it is a no brainier to go with the x470 Tachi. 

 

Just my opinion.

I was actually looking at that Tachi, but I decided against it... (plus it was out of stock)

Thanks. Taichi or Taichi Ultimate x470? Don't think I need/want 10G lan.

 

I get what you mean.....maybe in a year or so we'll have new sockets altogether. And yes, I'll be paying $100 for pcie 4 which I won't use.

 

If I'll go with x470, what would make the taichi better than crosshair vii?

Think the only difference between the Taichi and Taichi Ultimate is the 10GbE controller (and onboard power/reset button). So, I would say the regular Taichi (unless you need the 10GbE controller)

 

Regarding it vs the Crosshair vii ... I'll have to defer.

Nothing, I just can't really recommend one over the other (which is why I defer).  They are both excellent boards (at least from the reviews I've read) ... so ... yea I dunno.  :)
