  1. 32 GB of RAM feels kind of unneccessary, IMO. Unless you need it for some other task, you should be fine with 16GB and use the money for a better cooling solution
  2. Oh, definitely. I don't say he should go 3000+, I mean going from 2133 to 2666, last time I checked, the difference was under 25 dollars. 2666 is a good bargain sweet spot, I'd think
  3. The only thing I'd consider changing is the memory. Ryzen gets a boost, even if small, with faster memory, and the price difference between 2133 and 2666 isn't very big. Also, unless you plan on buying a second stick in the future, Dual Channel gives you a noticeable performance improvement, so if you are going with 16gb, go with 2x8
  4. The HD6XX are 300 Ohm Headphones. You're VERY likely going to need an amp for them
  5. Aftermarket coolers are better in most cases, because of the way they cool. Besides from the factory overclock, it will have a larger headroom
  6. So my dad is travelling to Europe next week, and the Sennheiser HD 598 SR are on sale (The open back model is at least). I plan on getting a DAC/AMP combo, but the only decent available here is the Fiio E10K (that doesn't cost 4 times as much as it should). Is it a good combination, or is it not worth the upgrade and I should stick to my motherboard audio? (It costs around 150 dollars here)
  7. Depending on how much money you want to spend, you could go with a Ryzen chip, a B350 board, 16 GB of RAM, and you'd be fine with the GPU. Unless you wanna do anything above 1080p, the 1060 is more than enough (make sure you get 16 GB of RAM though, I have the same GPU and 8 GB just isn't enough, you get massive stutters)
  8. Anything above 3200 MHz is not guaranteed to work. Even 3200 can be tricky at times. This applies to all AM4 boards, not just MSI or B350. Also, if you are still picking your parts, go with a different motherboard manufacturer, best options are Asus and AsRock for AMD (My mobo was an aesthetic choice and was also limited by what there was here)
  9. The game hates to run if your windows, steam and game installation are split between different drives. It happened to me the first time I downloaded it, it just wouldn't run. No idea if there is a fix. If it isn't that then no idea
  10. I think it would be done through the icloud app. I'm honestly not sure as I haven't used it before personally, but classmates who had to film shit on their phone for class did that all the time. Either that, or try emailing yourself the attachment
  11. I would personally try if you can get it on your icloud and download it on your computer. I'm lucky that I've never had to move stuff from my 6s to my PC, because I know it is a nightmare
  12. I'd say that an 18 core processor won't really shine unless you want to do serious streaming besides from gaming. Even with a no-limit budget, you could go with the 7900X and get nearly identical results, probably, if that is not the case. It's 1000 dollars less, which you could put into a pair of HD 800S for audio if you want to get serious. Also, the schiit stack of Magni+modi is pretty normal and very high quality. As for monitors, there aren't any 4k 144Hz and honestly not even two 1080Ti can drive that kind of framerate-resolution. I'm not sure if anything above 144hz 1440p exists but that would be your best bet, for a mix of resolution and high refresh rate
  13. If you have the chance to upgrade later on, go for the single 3000. Ryzen loves fast RAM, and I was on a single 3200 slot for a year without it being -unbearable-
  14. I'd recommend you run the free windows at first and buy it later down the line
  15. I'd recommend a DAC for one, and an AMP for another. An external combo like this could work pretty well if you want to save a buck, and if not, the classic Schiit stack (magni + modi) is a great option too. Those two options will probably be better than any internal solution for the same price
