Well that is why you need a budget. The 6700xt/6750xt is a good GPU in the ballpark under $400 (and probably including tax). You might want to consider that GPU as one of your options.No budget per se, I just don't want to cut too much into my savings intended for other expenses (originally I just planned to buy a <$400 graphics card) and if I do cut too much into it, I want to feel good about it because I got a lot of value for what I paid for.
I'm not so familiar with the Nvidia side of things but it appears to me AMD right now has the better price/performance options at the moment.
Given what you have provided so far moving the 3700x, the RAM (and your storage?) to the new motherboard makes sense with skipping replacement parts to keep the HP running will reduce total cost but you will not have 2 PC's without spending more to keep the HP operational. Assuming at the moment you are sticking with just your new PC option right now, and reusing as much as you can, I suspect you are in $240 + $380 (estimate) that puts you in the ballpark of a total around $620 already which is already over your <400 initial plan. You will still need to get a PSU probably if that HP PSU doesn't provide the necessary power connectors and/or can't provide good wattage. To stay comfortably under a total $650 you may need to get more aggressive looking/waiting for good deals for both good PSU and GPU.
At minimum perhaps rx6600xt ($250) and 500 watt PSU ($100) .
Would this be enough for the games you play or plan to play?
( see gaming reviews for what you think might be what you are looking for in terms of performance )
I kind of wish you didn't pull he trigger on the mobo so fast and used something like PC part picker to help plan out your build first. You might have been able to shuffle quite a bit of $$$ around to optimize your choices without worry. It still might be a good idea to start a parts list at https://pcpartpicker.com/ to help plan out the rest of your build and get a general idea of the total cost including the parts you are reusing (or roughly their equivalent) so you don't fall into a trap where you are buying a lot of stuff and fall short of what you need/want in your affordable range.
I had a few Questions just out of curiosity:
- Did your existing HP motherboard support PCIe 4.0?
- Did your existing HP motherboard conform to ATX form factor?
- Was there a reason you could not use your original HP motherboard in the new case?
