I am so exciting the Ryzen is as good as I thought

Update on 2/16/2017:
Thanks guys. Thanks for your advice.
I think I prefer to wait for 2 - 3 months, Watch some reviews about Zen and see what Action will Intel do. Then go to update.

Amd zen have not came out yet. It should come out around the corner now. $400usd is rather tight budget as you need a new cpu, motherboard and rams for which prices are not good now at all. Assuming $120 for a 16gb ddr4 ram. That leave $280 for cpu and board. You can go cheaper ram but nowadays it is better to have 16gb as standard now.

Do you overclock your i5 750? It is possible to overclock that cpu with FSB change as that gen intel have not lock down cpu overclocking. It would buy you more months to tide out looking at options. Otherwise with $280 you option is an current gen i3 6100 or i3 7100 with a cheap motherboard of your choice. You can also got with an i5 7400 with a low cost motherboard.

Those are the intel if you can't wait for zen yet.

Hello to you too! I would wait for AMD Ryzen to leunch its CPU series in 20 days and for the MB manufacturers to see their quality or not. I guess that for $400 you will be able to have a significant upgrade in performance with the pricing rumors we see lately.

you just want to upgrade or are there games or other tasks you cannot do with your current setup?
if you are cpu limited give your i5-750 a nice overclock?

I think $400 for 8GB RAM, a decent MB and the best Rysen for the remaining money will be a good upgrade if price rumors are correct. Let's see in 2-3 weeks from now guys. RAM can be upgraded to 16GB later after all.

with that budget, second hand intel hardware would be a good upgrade - even just second gen (something decent like an i5 2400 or above) is a big speed boost. Availability depends on your location, but progress has been slow in recent years, so a cheap overclockable 3rd/4th gen intel can match or beat a stock current gen (6th/7th) setup.

Hi. I would sell OCZ 128 GB SSD and buy Toshiba P300 1TB HDD for storage.

For under 400$ you can buy this:
- Intel Core i5 6500, box
- MSI B150 M3 motherboard
- Toshiba P300 1TB HDD
- 8GB G.Skill Aegis DDR4 2400 RAM

You don't need two SSD's, especially the one with only 128 GB capacity, so I recommend selling it. For the received money you could buy slightly better PSU such as Rosewill ARC M650 or EVGA 600B.

Corsair vx550 power.
OCZ SSD 128gb + 480gb.
In your case you would be good to upgrade now for significant performance boost but you might benefit more if you wait for AMD Ryzen and the new release isn't a flop where future proofing and good upgrade is concerned.
I would advise making plans for now with replacing almost your whole build apart for the graphics card which is recent.

Chipset is clearly outdated, DDR3 is almost out (and is only good if you got a good kit before they started phasing out the RAM and only having value kits available), there are much better high capacity and performance SSDs per price, and there are much better energy efficiency rated Power Supplies at a cheap price (a lot of good brands to choose from besides Corsair such as Super Flower, Seasonic, EVGA, etc).
Depending on aesthetics or preferences you may want to upgrade your PC case and other parts.
Strongly recommend doing research for a new build whether you want to settle with a cheap bundle or select the parts you want in particular.

I think there's going to be a flood of Intel 2/3/4/6th gen used hardware for sale once Ryzen comes out.
OP, if you're here in the states, there's nothing wrong with going for something like this: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/sop/5997981349.html You could even reuse your RAM. (I wouldn't spend more money on DDR3 at this point)

BTW, that P55 motherboard might be worth quite a bit.

Hi. I overclock a little. I change the i5 750 133 to 160.
rams can be 8GB for now. I can add to 16 or 32 later right? XD

Even waiting for Ryzen, I don't think $400 is enough for a worthy upgrade from your current hardware. Your looking more like $450-500.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jnTLjc
Thanks. 450 - 500 is also ok if it will worth

you just want to upgrade or are there games or other tasks you cannot do with your current setup?
if you are cpu limited give your i5-750 a nice overclock?
I play some game, But most of them are played fine now with my new GPU.
I overclock my i5 750 from 133 to 160. I am not good at overclock so would you give me some advice?

Thanks. I have a 2TB HDD. so it's ok for storeage.
I know 2 SSD is no useful. I added the 480GB ssd in 2016 Q4 for update. SO - -
i5 6500 is a good cpu. But I wanna see what will happen when Zen is come out.
The budget can be 400 - 500
Thanks again

Hi. This PC I used for almost 7 years. I think it's good enough for it.
And this time I wanna my new PC can work more than 5 years. So I would buy CPU+MB who as good as i5 750 in 2010.
CPU and MB are hard to update. But SSD GPU and memory can.
That's my plan. Is it right?
Thanks for any advice to me.

Anyone know how to overclock my i5 750 before I update my PC?
Is 160mhz * 21 is good for this CPU or not?

Arround $400?
Great, where are you from ? that will help to provide links and moar...also to use the budget for having better options...

You could get a decent Locked i5, decent "H" Chipset board and 8GB DDR4 for a rig update, or if you want could wait for that crap amd is gonna release... personally i dont care what amd might come up with ...

Arround $400?
Great, where are you from ? that will help to provide links and moar...also to use the budget for having better options...

You could get a decent Locked i5, decent "H" Chipset board and 8GB DDR4 for a rig update, or if you want could wait for that crap amd is gonna release... personally i dont care what amd might come up with ...


REgards,
I come from China. But I can buy something from US or Japan or UK on Amazon.
Yep 8gb memory for now and add more after is my plan. My budget is 400-500.
BTW. I really was a AMD fan before HAHA, But you know. The AMD CPU is too old.
So When I knew the new AMD CPU will come out I am so happy.
Yep. I5 is a good choice for me, This i5 750 worked 7 years and it's good for me. So another I5 is also good idea


You could just try pushing the button. The OC Genie button.
Just realize that OC'ing generates a lot more heat. Normally, the stock coolers can't handle OC'ing.

Thanks . I had bought a Noctua CPU cooler around 4 years ago.

It looks similar to this link.
So only thing I should do is push the button on my MB?

there you have, i guess you will reuse some parts of the previous build, so you might list sys specs, fill them

also check this link, this selection might fit your needs!

I tried. It give me 158*17 . But I have set it to 160*21 about 1 or 2 years ago. It always runs stable. So I closed OC Genius and back to 160*21. I think it should be good choice for this old CPU.

there you have, i guess you will reuse some parts of the previous build, so you might list sys specs, fill them

also check this link, this selection might fit your needs!

Regards,
I did the sys specs.
Yep, in my opinion, I can reuse the case, power, HDD&SSD, LCD, Mouse&keyword And my new GPU
I checked your link. It's good. But this old one I used 7 years. So I wanna be spent more this time and hope it can be another 7 years XD.
Do I have to change a CPU cooler?
