Hardware Upgrade

The old computer was nearly 7.5 years old, so it was time for a new one:

  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8x 3.60 GHz Socket AM4 Boxed, 324 EUR
  • MSI B450M Mortar Max, 94 EUR
  • 2x16GB Crucial [Ballistix Sport LT][basport] V2 Dual Rank DDR4-3200 DIMM CL16-18-18, 144 EUR
  • 1 TB Samsung 970 Evo M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 32Gb/s 3D-NAND TLC, 167 EUR
  • 500W be quiet! Pure Power 11 Non-Modular PSU, 56 EUR
  • Fractal Design Define C, black, 77 EUR

At 866 EUR without graphics card I’d call that pretty cheap.

Hardware I didn’t replace:

  • ASUS ROG Strix RX470, from 2016
  • Roccat Kone EMP
  • Logitech G710+ MX Brown
  • Dell U2715H 27”
  • Samsung SyncMaster 2443BW 24”
  • Samsung EVO 860 1 TB SSD
