Hi All,

I'm in the market to build a new PC, but not sure what parts to buy. I have a budget of $1500 and I'm going to keep my old case and PSU which is a Antec 850W.

For a CPU I'm not sure if I should get the-
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X

Not really sure the performance difference

This was my original list I was looking at
i5-7600K $333
i7-7700 $419
Z270I gaming pro $269
Seagate barracuda 2tb 7200rpm $99
ASUS Strix GTX 1060 O6G Gaming $429
Kingston UV400 240 g $119
Corsair vengeance LPX 16G kit DDR4 3200 $179

Please let me know your advice

Really don't know what to get for graphic card and motherboard

I just got the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X and I must the performance is very good. However I recall reading during my research that the i7-7700 is has better performance for gaming (more expensive).

On the other hand the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X has better performance when it comes to multi tasking so if you are looking to stream or something like that it has better performance.

Not really an expert in PC specs but thats just something I remember when choosing my parts.

Are you looking for PC as a gamer or for your work, remember before purchasing anything you need to know the purpose because the device depends on the usage. like i have my own business of cheap custom writing service so i take good processor pc that has speed, no storage issue, no hanging issue, and so many.
