  1. Looks like by chance I was able to order the 450 from Best Buy. We'll see if it actually exists or not.
  2. What I was referring to was that the price listed in that pcpartpicker link included tax.
  3. Crap! I've been waiting for almost a month for ANY motherboards to be in stock basically
  4. Reality it's $50 as I have to pay tax for whatever I buy. And I wonder if a bit of "future proofing" is worth the $50 as well as 4.0.
  5. I'm upgrading my PC and would like to grab the motherboard, CPU and RAM asap. Now that motherboards are starting to come back in stock it looks like now's the time to pull the trigger. I know that RAM speed is very important to Ryzen. Is 3200 fast enough or should I go higher? PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($171.99 @ Walmart) Motherboard: MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard ($192.58 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory ($67.39 @ Newegg) Total: $431.96 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-07-10 11:52 EDT-0400 Budget (including currency): $450 US Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: World of Warcraft, Path of Exile, Battlefront 2, COD, etc... Other details: I'll be using all my old parts for now except the motherboard, CPU and RAM
  6. the b550 tomahawk is in stock for $179 US and the b450 is in stock (different retailer) for $125 So it's not worth the extra $50 for the b550?
  7. I was under the impression that 4.0 wasn't needed for gpus but could make a BIG difference in storage speeds?
  8. I'd like to have pcie gen 4 if possible.
  9. I've been looking for quite some time to upgrade these 3 parts in my PC and saving up for a new GPU when the 3000 series releases. My question is motherboard related. They've been so hard to find lately, but it seems a few have come back in stock places. I'm looking at probably one of 3 I've found in stock. I'd like to stay under $200 US, and am open to other options.

  10. Looks like I'll be waiting for the new CPUs and motherboards to drop in late May/June.
  11. Well it seems as if the good mobos are all out of stock. Thanks Corona....
  12. I've been talking with a few people on here about upgrading my CPU, Motherboard and RAM. I'm looking to stay around $350 USish. I've been thinking of something similar to: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($174.15 @ Walmart) Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE ATX AM4 Motherboard ($109.99 @ B&H) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($82.37 @ Newegg) Total: $366.51 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-04-22 02:11 EDT-0400 Any suggestions around this price point? I'll be saving and trying to upgrade my GPU in a month or so.
  13. why the full atx motherboard? Is it worth the extra money? and losing the memory speed?
  14. It's intake in front, exhaust out the back. 1 intake, 1 exhaust.
  15. I basically got the go ahead from my wife to spend around 350. Is there anything you'd change?
  16. So this would be worth spending the extra $30 I assume? PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($174.99 @ B&H) Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 AORUS M Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($85.99 @ B&H) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($76.99 @ Newegg) Total: $337.97 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-04-21 02:15 EDT-0400
  17. I'm bad at cpus. How much of an upgrade is the 3600x over the normal 3600?
  18. I'm told my cpu would be a bottleneck to a gpu upgrade, so I'm thinking of possibly spending the $300US on a new CPU/Mobo/Ram combo. I'm using: i5 4690k 16gb Ram gtx 970 I'm not looking to spend a fortune, somewhere around $300US ish. I'm looking at maybe something like: PCPartPicker Part List Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 AORUS M Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($85.99 @ B&H) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($77.98 @ Amazon) Total: $163.97 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-04-20 22:16 EDT-0400 I have no idea what CPU to use. I watch some Paul's Hardware videos as well as Linus and Paul was saying that the new Ryzen refresh 1600 was good.
  19. So no is the answer. Thanks.
  20. upgrading the cpu means upgrading motherboard and ram also though...
  21. Somewhere around $300 maybe?
  22. I'm thinking of maybe upgrading my GPU in my PC (as I can't afford a new PC right now) . My current specs: Intel i5 4690k 16gb Ram GTX 970 I'm looking at maybe buying a 1660 ti or something of similar price. I'll only be gaming at 1080p and I'd like as high of frame rate as I can get for the dollar as I have a 144hz monitor that's going to waste atm.
  23. I'm not sure, neither of us want to spend a ton on it, as we could just use a host online for relatively cheap.
