  • Does anyone know how R3 3100 function compared to ryzen 5-3500x?

    • +1

      Not english but easy enough to understand the stats

      • Thanks brother :)

    • +3

      Imo 3600 > 3300x > 3500x > 3100

      • +1

        I think that's pretty well accurate.

      • Any idea where the 2600 fits in there?

        • For gaming purposes it's probably below all of them when overclocked equally

          • @scottySK: Okay yeah, how about in terms of longevity though? Since the 2600 have 6 cores, and the 3300x has 4, does that make a difference in the future? I'm planning to build a gaming PC but don't want to change parts for some time

            • @monkeyoutlet: In terms of longevity, a 2600 will indeed last longer in the future. How long are you planning until you change the parts?

              • @HaveANiceDay: Well this is only my first build but I was thinking maybe 5 years? No idea if that's reasonable or too long

            • @monkeyoutlet: I wouldn't upgrade from a 2600 to any of these. The 3600 is the only real sizable improvement but unless it's absolutely required for a particular/immediate use case I'd hang onto the 2600 until the 4600 releases

              • +1

                @scottySK: I haven't actually gotten the 2600 yet, just trying to weigh it up against the similarly priced stuff. Thanks!

                • @monkeyoutlet: Ah yep fair enough, well then with that info I'd grab a 3600 when they pop up for around $260, but if that stretches your budget too far I'd get the 3300x which goes for $195.. if you want an even more budget option the Ryzen 1600AF goes for about $165 and performs within 3% of a 2600. Good luck with it all mate.

                  • @scottySK: Yeah sounds good, although I think the 1600AF prices are hanging quite closely to the 3300x's (around $195), with the 2600 price being only about 20$ more than those two. Can't seem to find the 1600af as low as 165$ as you said. So should I still go with what you said in this case?

                • -1

                  @monkeyoutlet: I just got a 3600 for $299 from mwave and would definitely recommend it over a 2600 if you haven't purchased yet.. Hardly a diff in price and why buy an out of date part from the beginning? Both 6c 12t tho and wouldn't settle for a lowly quad in this day and age..

                  • @Tymelock: Yeah, I mean I would get the 3600 if I could but I feel like my budget of 1000$ doesn't really warrant the price

                  • +1

                    @Tymelock: That's over $100 more than the $195 3300x, in a tight budget gaming build I'd take the "lowly quad" and use that $100 to improve the GPU…

      • Cheers buddy :)

  • Able to upgrade to 3300x instead of 3500x?

    • Not at this stage - available 3300X stock has vanished for the time being so we're not offering it.

  • I can't seem to add this to the cart, adding a few upgrades

    • Same problem here, tried multiple times and keep getting "your cart is empty"

    • +2

      It was the monitor option requiring a selection - removed that need so it's working now, thank you.

  • Does that B365 support m2 Luke?
    I know the old biostar B360 did, what about this one?

    • +1

      Yep it does. Its the MSI Pro VH.

  • Hi Techfast or Luke.
    Your mobile website is broken, doesn’t let you scroll, maybe fix that

    • Refresh.

  • If I don't select an OS option, what does the machine come loaded with?

    • I assume it will be a non activated windows? Or maybe no OS at all. Interesting question.

      • +1

        Yeah, just wanted to check. Not a big deal, but simpler if it is non activated.

        • Yeah, I do believe its standard for companies who ship custom built systems to install windows and run a few tests. I'd imagine they would simply use the reset to stock option in Windows 10 and ship it out.

      • +1

        I have one of their systems and it just wasn't activated.

  • Hey luke, maybe there would be interest in a 2080 super upgrade option for the 9700 package, what would that look like?

    That could make it a really really good intel comparison to your 3600/2080s deal today. as this already has name brand motherboard and lower ram speed doesnt matter.

    • Lower RAM speed does still matter, the 10400 gets smoked by the 3600 across the board with 2666 RAM but beats the 3600 in gaming with 3200. Fast RAM really matters on Ryzen, but it doesn't mean it makes no difference on Intel.

  • what sort of PSU are we getting in the budget build ?

    • The explosive type.

  • if you upgrade this to the 3500x its a solid price

  • Just on case anyone was wondering about fulfilment and delivery times, I ordered the budget build above (with a couple of changes) on July 16, order was dispatched (according to Austtalia Post) on 06 August, and I received it today (11 Aug 20).

    • Lucky…. my other post never got a reply.


      The monitor came a few days later DOA. Currently 24 business days without a working system or 38 days in total.

      There's budget builders, then there's selling computer parts out the back of the van. After testing the monitor, and seeing the emails I told my friend to just do a bank charge back. The email response back once a day is ridiculous with a DOA part. Its 5 business days so far just trying to return faulty monitor that was sent after the system that was already late.

      Can you please pm me a business telephone number so we can resolve this a lot quicker then it is right now?
