Best Components for AMD Ryzen 4K Gaming PC

Here the best computer components that you will need to build an ultimate AMD Ryzen Gaming PC. This gaming PC does not have any budget constraints, so I will be using the best available components for this build.

Processor

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X @ 3.6GHz

Check Price

For processor we have the top of the range AMD Ryzen Processor which is Ryzen 7 1800X. This is the fastest AMD processor that you can get your hands on. Ryzen 7 1800X is a Octa-core processor having clock speed of 3.6 GHz and Turbo or Boost speed of 4 GHz. The processor is based on the AMD’s latest Zen architecture and comes unlocked, which allows you to overclock it to higher frequencies.

AMD Ryzen 7 1800xThe processor has 8 physical cores but can process 16 threads at once, which makes its performance almost double in multi-threaded applications and latest games. It also comes with a new feature called Extended Frequency Range (XFR). XFR automatically allows the processor to overclock itself higher than the boost frequencies based on how good the cooling is. So if the cooling is good and processor is at lower temperature then it can overclock itself to maximum possible frequency till threshold temperature is reached. The performance of Ryzen 7 1800X is comparable to that of Intel Core i7 6900K which is almost double the price of Ryzen 7 1800X. When paired with a top-end graphics card you can easily play latest demanding games on Ultra settings at 4K resolution. The processor does not come with any cooler so need a good aftermarket CPU cooler to keep its temperature down during normal load and during overclocking & gaming.
