  1. IMO, any upgrade that you can truly afford to increase performance is worth, so I would go with the i7 if you absolutely have to. Buuuuut you should wait to see what Ryzen+ performance is before you buy anything.
  2. You should be able to send it in if your motherboards warranty extends to a full year I would make sure and check the box's literature if you still have it. If you can manage to sell your components at least for around the same costs of the 1600 and mobo it would then be worth it to upgrade but its just the time to find someone to buy it.
  3. Ryzen will definitely give better performance, but the increase may not be worth having to purchase the 1600 and also purchasing a new motherboard. unless you would be gaining enough financial compensation from the increase in performance, I wouldn't think the upgrade to be worth it.
  4. This big companies really can't give two sh*ts about protecting us, just makes me upset to see such big entity we all trust with our personal stuff just get careless.
  5. Makes sense, Id think this would definitely be a great way to go about it since you typically don't need to upgrade your CPU as often as you would your GPU, but #Ryzen for life!
  6. Hyper X is def going to be better I have cloud II's and love them ill use them to the day I die but hyper x's product to me at least are more of a mid to upper range not a "Cheap" headset like what creative offers imo. the Hyper X stingers I don't know alot about since they weren't around when I purchased my headset but the creatives I can definitely recommond where i've used them.
  7. Intel is alright with lower clocked speeds than Ryzen which eats up those speeds crazy, but of course with future proofing you never know whats down the line right, better to speed an extra 20-30$ and guarantee your up to speed 5 or so years down the line.
  8. for $1800 Id look into a Ryzen 1700, you could prolly squeeze out a 1080Ti if you looked for the right deals and didn't get to flashy with your case and RGB. Id try to get at least 3200 Hz ram since Ryzen loves that sh*t. For your monitor take a look at this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009847 Its a bit pricey but i'm planning on purchasing this for redoing my setup the G-sync is a really nice touch for gaming and the curve of course is added immersion.
  9. I have the Hyper X cloud II's and love them like Syn said detachable mics are nice, but they are becoming more common in the headset space, the 3.5mm jack is also nice but from what I've seen they are not to common, as for your driver question every headset will work with drivers they are NOT necessary they are only there for extra features like 7.1 surround and RGB control.
  10. Yea i'm doing 32GB of the platinum 3200 in my latest build they look and perform spectacularly from what I've seen.
  11. My brother bought the previous version of this headset and for the money its definitely one of the best I've seen. https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Headset-Detachable-Noise-Cancelling/dp/B016NN88DS/ref=dp_ob_title_ce
  12. Those are better but the clock is 2666, I would really try to find some a little higher if you can, if not its certainly not the end of the world. XD, https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820236038 How about those or is that too much out of your price range?
  13. Looks really good overall, Good spread out of money, the only thing I see is you might want to get higher clocked ram if you can find it to fit your theme, 2400 isn't super high, I would recommend at least trying to get 3000 or 3200 just to help future proof it more so than 2400. Looks good though make sure t o post some pics on here once its all done!
