I bought the Ryzen 7 3700X and and x570 motherboard. And its extremely overkill.




Get a Ryzen 5 the popular one everyone is getting, they are still ridiculously powerful, and a B450 motherboard or something a little newer 500 series. 


Computers are a waste of money. But I wouldn't worry about it not being powerful enough with that setup. It will be cheaper and will last 5 years. I suspect you will be replacing the video card long before then anyway.

Changed processor to 3900X .


Now will my 750 watt RM750i gold be enough?




Yes. I got a EVA supernova 750 and its more than enough.

Personally would say, if you can afford it go for it, better overkill than underkill. But its not my money...

3900x is a good 50% step up for multi-threaded performance.

Power usage doesn’t drastically change, 70-100W vs 100-130W depending on load and clocks.

Unless you intend to run dual gpu’s or other thing then a recommended wattage is usually around the 500W range.
