1050 ti + ryzen 1500x or 1060 3gb with ryzen 1200

Hii I'm having troule deciding on which cpu/gpu combo should I get.

Here are the rest of the specs:

psu: 550 Watt Seasonic FOCUS Plus Modular 80+ Gold-75€

HDD: WD 1 tb blue-41€

Mobo: msi 350 pc mate-78€
RAM: G-skill rip jaws 3200- 107€
case:Corsair 270r-58€

1050 ti is 145€ while 1060 is 200€
ryzen 3 1200 is 100€ while ryzen 5 1500x is 160€

I'll be playing games on 1080p, and I'm satisfied with high settings.

  1. If you go for the Ryzen 5 1400, will you still not be able to afford a GTX 1060 3GB?

    1400 is 150€ while 1500x is 159€

  3. I'd rather suggest a R4 1500X and GTX 1050 Ti in that case.

    I'm deciding now in between the 1600 + 1050 ti, 1200 + 1060 3gb or 1600 + 1060 3gb( I know this is the best but i can get almost the same performance in games with 1200 just like 1600 for 100€ less).

  5. 1200 has 4 cores and 4 threads, 1600 has 6 cores and 12 threads. Those 6 cores and 12 threads will make a difference in gaming. Less stutters ftw.

    may i hear your opinion on 1600 and 1050 ti option then?, I'll prob go for 1060 but what's your opinion on 1050 ti

  7. 1050 Ti is ok but nothing particularly special. It kind of depends on your own expectations, checking out a few reviews here will do a lot more than me saying It's either good or bad.

    If i need to choose between 1050 ti with 1600 and 1200 with 1060 3gb, what's the better for future proofing? Will be playing 1080p

  9. For 1080p gaming you want a minimum of a 1060 if 'future proofing' is part of your goal. That's because i would call the 1050 Ti adequate for 1080p today. "Adequate" means just enough, there's no extra performance to spare. in fact, some of today's games might not run at 60fps high settings 1080p on a 1050Ti.

    So then the real question is can you game for now and the future with a quad core 1200? I say yes. It's true games will be coming out that will take advantage of more cores or more threads, but they won't require more than quad core for a very long time. That's not counting the extra performance you might someday get by overclocking the 1200, since I know not everyone wants to bother with overclocking.

    In short, a 1060 will help you now and in the future more than a 1200 will hold you back. A 1500 or 1600 is not going to do much for you in games today or tommorrow especially when limited by a 1050 Ti.

  10. I owned a quad core processor since my time of building PC's until this year. More cores/threads are just very practical to have. It keeps your CPU usage lower in games that don't use more than 4 cores or 4 threads, causing background apps to not cause hick-ups while you're playing a game.

    In games that do use more cores/threads, you'll have more consistent performance and higher minimum framerates in most cases.

    Besides that, if you ever happen to convert/decode gameplay clips or general videos, or render something it'll do it a lot quicker.

    More cores/threads has benefits for almost every consumer, since It's affordable nowadays it becomes more and more impossible for me to still suggest quad core processors when better ones have become so affordable.

  11. Thank you for the help, I've decided to go for 1200 and just upgrade the cpu later if i feel the need to.
