  1. That's a huge gap in $ between the two chips and platforms but X570 should be fine like everyone else stated
  2. cool, good luck finding a 3950X at retail let alone at all But yeah IMO the best CPU in ages that you could run for a long time
  3. Historically AMD are slower in delivering working drivers, take that as you will
  4. best value financially no way but yeah a RTX 2070 Super or even 5700 XT are $400-$500 and are just a GTX 1080 Ti but with better tech. The kicker for me is that the RTX 2080 Ti is really the perfect 3440x1440 high refresh card and really the only true 4K 60+ FPS card out there and that is how I personally justify it. Also it is the only RTX card that showed somewhat of a generational performance increase like you said at 25%-30% Here is the thing whether it's $1000 or $1200+ and no matter how you and your wallet personally feel about the RTX 2080 Ti being a good value, the fact remains Nividia's top consumer Pascal card in the GTX 1080 Ti card launched at at $700. Not An Apple fan did a great video recently and he explains the $500 increase for the RTX 2080 Ti based on the fact that people bought Titans is droves at $1200 even though it was basically a minimally faster $700 GTX 1080 Ti. I agree with this and idea that Nvidia saw an opportunity to price the RTX 2080 Ti at that $1200 mark Yes the RTX 2080 Ti is a great card just not a great value compared to Pascal I also fall into this camp so yeah it sort of doesn't matter
  5. More photos I have since changed the AIO fans to Noctua A12X25 and while they lack RGB hands down they are much quieter and cool the system really well. Idle temps of 45 degrees and gaming at 3440x1440 Ultra I am getting CPU temps Mid 50 degrees to low 60 degrees. GPU is 68-72 degrees depending on game I am really into SFF and yeah Ryzen 3000 especially the R9 has changed the game for everyone. My previous system was a Sliger Cerberus 18.5L mATX system X399M 2950X with a custom loop and now with the 3950X I have just as many cores in a 12.9L case and the chip is much faster, runs cooler, requires less power, and costed $150 less than the 2950X's MSRP.

  7. for this monitor you could do a 5700XT or RTX 2070 Super and that will hit around 80-100+ frames in most games, with some exceptions like Red Dead. Really depends on your budget, since if the rumored of the RTX 2080 Ti Super comes true the 2080 Ti should drop maybe even sub $1K which is still a lot but quite frankly the best card for 3440x1440 and 4K with out turning down any settings
  8. Congrats. People forget how hard 3440X1440 is to drive. Red Dead is a killer and I only average maybe 60 FPS with a RTX 2080 Ti which is still better than 30 FPS locked on console...
  9. Good deal I would do it. I have the older version and haven't had any issues besides some normal corner IPS glow and one corner's frame has a gap but I got mine for $620 when they were normally going for $900 a year ago
  10. no because response time is the time it tapes to change from one color to another. Hz is the time it takes to change from one frame to another
  11. Looking to buy a secondary monitor to go with my 34" UW AW3418DW and I noticed there are some great sales on last gen TN AW2518HF for $270 at MicroCenter. I also noticed Dell released the AW2720HF a 27" 1080P IPS 240Hz monitor and I missed the sale at $350 which would have been a no brainer, but now the monitor is now at $420. Mostly I would be using this as a secondary monitor but also to exclusively use on high paced games or games that even with a RTX 2080 Ti are hard to game on at 3440x1440 I am leaning towards the AW2518HF since it will match my AW3418DW, 1080P looks better on a 24.5', it's cheaper, and being smaller it will fit on my desk better with my 34" Any suggestions? or LG 27GK750F-B at $270, 27" FreeSync but G-SYNC compatible, TN, 1080P
  12. no offense $20 is a brainer and I doubt $20 makes the difference in upgrading any other part to anything significant. maybe $20 is 3200 to 3600 RAM? Or a basic Intel 660P NVME to something more quality. But nothing in my book that will stop you form just clicking the button to get that 3800X
  13. In the US totally sold out with re-sellers asking as much as $1500 for them. Apparently Amazon has had a few small shipments that sell out in seconds, which probably has to do with bots. Got mine on launch by reserving for in store pickup at MicroCenter. Honestly I can't see healthy stock until at least February and even then I can easily see retailers asking 5%-15% above retail. best advice grab a 2700x for $130 sell it for $80-$100 when the 3950X restocks for MSRP or just for a R9 3900X which has the multi-core performance of a 2950X and performs close enough to a i9 9900K while gaming
  14. A 2080 Super is what $750? Some BF sales already have 2080 Ti at $1000. $250 isn't chump change but I would do whatever possible to get up to that. The Super cards are all ok to good but the 2080 Ti is the only card that comes close to pushing 4K or even decent frames at 3440x1440 I have a AW3418DW and any of these cards would be able to push frames on it, however the 2080 Super and Ti especially at this elevated 2K resolution and at 120 HZ are the ones I would go with People forget 3440x1440 is 34% more pixels than 2560x1440 so if you want to maximize this monitor to get at least 100 FPS This being said there is supposedly a 2080 Ti Super on the way next year and probably an Nvidia refresh third quarter
