    Build me a pc for $1200

    It will but usually the expensive stuff comes out first. Like for example ryzen r9 gets released, r7 gets released, r5 gets released then finally r3 gets released. I honestly reccomend going for a pretty decent cpu anyways, cause upgrading that is kinda frustrating.

    Audio issues, bluetooth on galaxy note 9

    I would recommend contacting Samsung customer support. Submit a ticket see what they say. It sounds like it is an issue with your note 9 not the headphones. You have tried the headphones on other devices like laptop, other phones etc correct?

    Then wait. I am waiting for ryzen 3000 chips and new zen gpus. I think they are going to make you buck go a lot further real quick. AMD if it is able to not flop on release could throw everyone a major curve ball and make the competition more fierce than ever before. Better competition = win for consumer dollar

    I agree the market is due to change quite quickly once AMD releases its new chips. With the rumored performance gains and price per dollar gains... it isn't worth building a system ATM wait for the launch. It will give you better bang for buck. Or are you unable to wait?

    liquid Damage on Laptop

    either way it is probably about the same risk I would think... they are usally fairly well contained... (aside from m.2 ssds) but if it is smaller then less chance of there being water there too.

    um no. Ryzen offers a way better value proposition at the moment compared to intel, first because you can upgrade to any future platform cpu with just a bios update, second because core per dollar is much cheaper, third because factoring in motherboard cpu and ram is cheaper for ryzen, and several other reasons. That being said I do agree however that nvidia is a bit better performance per dollar. https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_value.html It kinda depends though on price point and a few other factors.

    I mean its not that hard to take one apart. It is cheaper to take it apart, but yes you could get somewhere to fix it for you

    One thing that I also noticed was that you have a 144hz monitor (which is great would reccomend), but you don't have the graphics hardware to back it up... so give it a more powerful graphics card for certain.

    liquid Damage on Laptop

    Thats probably a good idea. Isopropl alchohol will evaporate quickly preventing parts from getting ruined too. So do that and probably avoid water if you can...

    liquid Damage on Laptop

    I would say mostly yes, but then on top of what they did in the video you might want to take the keyboard (separate from anything electronics or batteries) and wipe it down/ wash it off.

    liquid Damage on Laptop

    This is a pretty good video. I think there are a few other similar ones on youtube as well. I havn't done something like that before, but taking it apart and letting it dry is probably a good idea.

    My first gaming computer...

    So there are a few things that stand out to me. First you don't want an oem copy of windows. It if you switch out parts later (and keep the same hard drive) then I have heard that windows will stop working and you need to contact them in order to get it working again. Second you are going really ham on some of the parts and not others. For example you have really nice motherboard and storage, but you are only using a rx 570. Here is what I would do instead if this is the budget that you are sticking to. (This isn't an end all be all, but a decent example of what you could do). You are going way too ham on that power supply as well you won't need a 850 w power supply especially for that price.

    WALL.E 2.0

    Wow thats really impressive, nice work. That's a lot more work than I think I would be willing to put into something.
  15. Yeah it kinda depends. If the performance from the new Ryzen chips is a solid improvement then i think it would be worth it, but if we are talking very slim gains... then I might just "save" my money and go for the i7 4790k.
