  1. 4:4:4 won’t really make a difference in pc gaming, but it should make text look a bit better. It’s a less compressed image, so if you can you might as well. Here is an rtings article on it: https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/chroma-subsampling
  2. You should enable some of the stuff in this setting if you want. I personally like the 10 bit color and YCBCr 444. For HDR you enable it in windows display settings. Keep in mind that once you enable HDR it will make all SDR content (including your desktop look washed out). You should be manually enabling and disabling it whenever you want to use it. Its a giant pain in the booty so I don't use it.
  3. Anything over $30 is a rip off for an HDMI cable. But, there are times where a cheaper hdmi cable has given me display problems.
  4. Those are settings you would enable on your device. If you’re running an Nvidia graphics card it’s in the Nvidia control center thingy. The scenario I mentioned is pretty much the only time you would need a higher quality hdmi cable (until hdmi 2.1 becomes more popular).
  5. if you get 4k, HDR, and 4:4:4 chroma sub sampling all at the same time with out the picture either being fuzzy or cutting out its a high speed HDMI cable. I had troubling getting all of that with my 4k apple tv until I got this HDMI cabe: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N343SBS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 If yours gives you trouble this one has been great.
  6. No, one is in my brother's computer one is in my computer. they have also been DDU'd. There is nothing wrong with sub 80c temps on a 2080 super. Its a two slot card with only two fans.
  7. It does need a bios update, but then will run just as well as it does on the x570 boards. Some motherboards have a bios flash switch and can update without a 3000 series CPU. Otherwise you can see if a local shop will update the bios for you or AMD will send you out a loaner CPU to update the bios.
  8. They are both EVGA XC Gaming GPUs. Even open air it goes to around 76c without the undervolt. I originally had the Gigabyte windforce 2080 super and it had temps closer to your 2070 FE, but the 0 RPM mode kept turning on and off driving me crazy.
  9. Honestly, why are you even looking at x570 boards. The 3600x is a 65w TDP, you can run it well on B450/X470 motherboards. Unless you need PCIE 4.0 you should just go with the Asus Prime X470-Pro for around $140 usd.
  10. My brother has a 2070 super and I have the 2080 super, both get pretty much the same temps. They are both dual fan 2 slot cards. I recommend undervolting if you're concerned about the temps, but you'll only reduce temps by around 5c if you don't want to give up performance.
  11. I’m sorry, did I ever say it was? It’s a good controller but Samsung’s is better. That’s good to know. Admittedly I’m a little biased from my past experiences with cheaper SSD’s. Every crucial memory product I have owned has died in around 2-3 years. I personally have never had a Samsung SSD die so I go with those for my boot drive, and then an Intel 660p for secondary storage. I’ll have to look into those SSDs when I need to expand.
  12. I agree with most of what you said except for the SSD. For a boot drive I wouldn't recommend a cheap SSD. Its more expensive because it uses higher quality NAND, has a large DRAM Cache, and a good storage Controller. I think those drives you suggested are great for a secondary game drive, but I wouldn't want my OS on it.
  13. Yes, but by such a small amount that it won't really matter. Provided you have fast memory the 3700x at ~4.2ghz will perform around 6-10fps slower than a 9700k at 5ghz. (This is at games that are running in the 120fps + range not at games that would be around 60fps.) Technically this would be a bottleneck, but I don't think you should worry about it.
  14. Gaming performance is probably around 10-15% better (you can find gaming comparisons on YouTube). Also the 1650s should run a bit cooler and quieter. I would personally go for the RX 570 though, if you can get it for around $170.
  15. Don’t wear socks and touch a metal piece of the computer frame to discharge. You’ll be fine then. I use to use anti static band but haven’t for the last 2ish years and haven’t had an issue. Jayz2cents did a video showing how resilient modern computer hardware is to static discharge. You should watch it if you’re worried.
