    updated parts list

    I'm going to use 2700x for now, but planning on getting the 3900x or 3950x when on sale.

    updated parts list

    I think I got everything set except for the motherboard. I'm getting G. Skill 3200mhz ram. For motherboards, it's down to https://www.newegg.ca/p/N82E16813145155?Description=x570&cm_re=x570-_-13-145-155-_-Product or https://www.newegg.ca/p/N82E16813157883?Description=x570&cm_re=x570-_-13-157-883-_-Product The Taichi is cheaper, but I read that the VRM on the Master is better and I don't mind the price, would that be a good choice? Thoughts?
  3. Taichi? I've never had an Asrock mobo before, so I'm sure how their software/bios perform.
  4. because I already have it. And planning to upgrade to 3900x/3950x next year.
  5. Specs: 2700x, 32gb DDR4 3200, Vega 64. Now I'm torn between the x470 Crosshair Hero VII and Tachi/Ultimate. I don't need PCe 4.0 and it's more for productivity and less gaming. I like, however, wifi 6 and BT 5 in the x570. Should I pull the trigger and get a mid-range x570 or high-end x470?
  6. You're saying get a x470 mobo because of how hot the chipset is?

    what's the next for my build?

    I don't think I'll make use of PCIE 4.0, but I like wifi 6 and bt 5. With my current 5 year old laptop, i cannot use my bt mouse and bt headphones together because of frequency disturbances and noise lags and poppings.
  12. Main tasks are programming, R, 1 or 2 vm's, databases and least important is gaming. Current parts acquired yet: ryzen 2700x, 32gb ram, vega 64, 1tb ssd. Remaining: motherboard <--- Now, should this be a x570 for longevity and potential upgradability to 3900x or 3950x? What differences should I look for between different brands?

    is this psu overkill for my needs?

    So the rm 550 would be enough for a 3900x, x570 mb, vega 64 and (maybe) an AIO cooler?
