Added i5/i7 info to the OP

thanks this is going to be a fun fall/winter for tech :)

With their combination of excellent (for their class) performance and extremely reasonable asking prices the Ryzen 5 series is a home-run for AMD. So much so that recommending a slightly cheaper Intel i3-7350K or even a similarly priced Intel i5-7500K is bloody difficult. But don't just take our word for it, instead let's break it down so you can see where we are coming from and if you agree or not.

Only with the most recent drivers? I haven't seen it yet, but I haven't done the most recent drivers yet.

No this issue showed up in 2016 and people were calling it amds planned obsolescence. But it's random what cards in the series it affects but as little as one driver update will make the card useless till you find a perfect one that works.

Noticed for some time now many Amd cards mobile and desktop have stopped working after any drivers are installed.

Once drivers install the screen goes black and never comes back. When you force reboot you see video till the Windows login screen appears which just shows up black.

Just wanted to know if anyone has found any solutions to this?

come on one more view, let's go one more view

Buddy of mine Jimmy from the FSF has had a loaner rig for years now made from the broken dreams of all our local friend's systems.

I ended up needing my HD 290X back for an upcoming video so told him its time to upgrade.

So that's what we did.


Ryzen R5 1600x
8GB DDR4 2400 Gskill Ripjaws
MSI GTX 1070 Armor 8GB
Asus Prime X370-PRO
Coolermaster MSI Modmaster Case
Hydro Series H60

Used from old rig
OCZ 1000 Watt PSU
2TB Seagate SSHD
275GB Crucial MX300 SSD

Rig turned out not half bad and for once Jimmy has one of the nicest rigs of the whole gaming group so good on him.

Ryzen is a lot of fun and simple to build with, reminds me of building with almost all AMD as the Corsair cooler mounts to the stock AMD socket mounts.

Great post thanks for sharing.

I fully agree even rumors of 6 core for i5s are on the market to.

Intel played the greed game while they had no competition now things are changing and they are rushing to correct the course.

I will be doing my own full swap to Amd for the first time in a damn long time hope it is enjoyable:)

I'm both on-call and dog sitting. Final Fantasy, Netflix, and reasonable amounts of beers. Not terribly exciting.

Still does not sound bad.
I got
last of us
Diablo 3
Little big planet
Plants vs zombies garden warfare
And 5 more games today

Mags needs some good games when the baby is napping
