What mobo cpu memory go good with saphire nitro rx 6700 xt?

Recommended Posts

I won a raffle to buy rx 6700 xt and i want to build with good board and cpu. I am wondering if anything more than rx 3700x is waste of money? i watch videos of ppl 4k gaming with lesser cpus like r5 3600 and never see cpu gover over 40% use while gpu bottlenecks. I just built rx 3700x cpu  rtx 3070 gpu   msi x570 gaming edge mobo   corsair vengeance pro 2666 h100 liquid cooled and it runs great but lookin to build as best gaming pc i can with rx 6700 then ill go back to this rtx 3070 and see if i can tune it better. Any have this setup or what would you build with rx6700? thanks for any assistance. Dan

Congrats on wining, though I'm not really sure why you switched to a AMD 6700 XT if you already have a RTX 3070.

Anyways from your post it seems like you already have a Ryzen 3700X. If you are building another PC, the AMD 5600X or 5800X is a nice choice for gaming. I switched my test system from a 3800X to a 5800X and saw a 30% increase in FPS. Of course this is game dependent. Some barely saw any changes, but the Ryzen 5000 series is where it is at in terms of cost-to-performance.

So I would grab a B550 Motherboard, a 5600X and some DDR4 3600 CL16 memory for that 6700 XT. You could get more out of it by switching to a 5800X and 3600 CL14 memory, but now your adding cost. Mind you this is a quick list, I'm sure you can find better deals.

Across our 10-game DXR test suite, the RX 6700 XT only gets close to the same performance as the RTX 3070 in the AMD-promoted Dirt 5 and Godfall. The overall lead ends up at just under 50% in favor of the RTX 3070 at both 1080p and 1440p, with a range of 6% (Godfall) to 121% (Minecraft).
