For a reused A10 build I highly recommend you keep it on the cheap. What does the PC look like right now spec wise?

Why the 1500X when the 1600 is the same price?

This is what i'd do honestly. The GTX 680 will absolutely decimate a GT 1030 in most tasks.

Looks nice! I'd highly consider Ryzen on account for the thread count and the overclock potential.

If that's the case I highly recommend you check r/hardwareswap. It has fantastic deals generally cheaper than other sites. I'll see what I can put together for that budget in a few minutes. And it'll decimate any list using all new parts for the budget.

Are you comfortable with buying used? Because for your price point you're going to end up cutting a few corners.

For what it is, I don't believe it deserves its bad rep. In multi threading applications it definitely holds its own in apps like cinebench. After I had built it it didn't really see much usage or further testing.

Any reason you went with X470 over B350/B450? And there's no reason to get the 1500X when you can get the 1600 for the same price

I honestly don't know, I just went with the Zotac card because it fit the price range and it was in the original partlist. Any issues with those cards is news to me

I haven't read professional reviews on that motherboard so I don't know how good the VRMs are or how good it overclocks. The Gaming K6 / Taichi seem to be solid options for the price.

This is the best I could come up that has RGB for around $1000. I didn't include RGB case fans as I don't know enough about that to give solid advice.

If you're looking into a really good Ryzen board I highly recommend the Gigabyte X370 K7 or Gaming 5 if you like white, Amazon is selling the K7 for $115 as a Warehouse deal as "Used - Like New" and the Gaming 5 for $109.

Another fantastic option would be the Asus Strix X370-F for $115 on Amazon

Do you have a budget in mind? Because a build like this would be a solid choice. Not too sure on the quality of the motherboard, and if you need a wifi card I strongly recommend the Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I.

Used Morgan123's list. I went with the R5 1600 over the 1400 because of the small price difference for 2 more cores and 4 more threads.

If you're looking into overclocking I highly recommend the Gigabyte X370 K7 or Gaming 5 if you like white, Amazon is selling the K7 for $115 as a Warehouse deal as "Used - Like New" Its not on the level of the Crosshair VI Hero but it is a fantastic board if you account for the BIOS capability uncertainty with Ryzen APUs out of box.

Clock for clock they're the exact same chip as far as I'm aware. You'd get a higher chance of getting a cpu that overclocks higher and the limited edition badge but if you don't care about that stuff it's really hard to justify when sites like Silicon Lottery exist.

Why not get the 8700K and a beefier cooler? Why 32gb of RAM? And blower 1080s are generally meh in the temperature department.

If selling is an option I'd sell the 1150 stuff and the i3 and upgrade the cpu to either a skylake i5 or i7

I would probably go with that. The SSD+HDD combo is a great idea. I've read good reviews on the Pro 4 mobo for what it is. The EVGA G3 is a fantastic PSU. The Focus G is also a good case.

Front: 2 x 140 / 2 x 120mm fan

Rear: 1 x 120mm fan (1 x 120mm FN V2 Fan Included)
