How upgradable is it?

You might wonder about the upgrades you can do without changing the R5 5500 in the future, The R5 5500 can handle up to RTX 3060ti without bottleneck regarding your power supply without the need of changing it, so the R5 5500 is the overall complete package within budget.


Hankerz recommended users of the R5 5500

Recommended for begginer-ameture creators with slightly strict budget, we recommend starting with RTX 3050 aligned with the R5 5500.

We also recommend buying a mid-range motherboard to be able to change the processor in the future in case you want extra processing power, Thanks to the AM4 socket you have a bunch of options to upgrade on the same socket and choose the GPU that matches your upgrade budget.
