  1. Just asking as I'm going to get this and an i5-10400 to pair with a 3070/3080 (whichever I can get first). I want to make sure this will be a good enough motherboard to last for a decent amount of time. I'm not looking to really future proof as I expect to upgrade this in like 2-ish years, but want to make sure the two years I use it aren't horrible. Not finding a lot of reviews for it, so I came here to ask. I know motherboards are one of the least important things to worry about in the build, but I just want to make sure it isn't the worst choice.
  2. So I had this thought in my head just a couple hours ago, and I wanted to pass it by some people here on the forums. I have a pretty decent laptop. Its an Asus ROG Zephyrus with a Ryzen Ryzen 7 3750H, and a 1660Ti build in. I was wondering if I could get something like this or this and connect a 3070 (if I can get one lol) to it. Would the 3070 be bottlenecked in anyway? Is this a bad idea in general? I was just thinking of doing this instead of investing more into a desktop, as I have this laptop and I'm doing college from home right now, so my laptop is serving me well and I see no reason to invest in both.
  3. Didn't return it yet. Just looking for something cheaper. More I think about it the harder it seems to find something that is worth it.
  4. I know. I can get a refund from Amazon. I'm trying to get something cheaper, so I can spend more on the cpu and gpu when I upgrade eventually.
  5. Pretty much the title. I bought an Aorus X570-i Pro Wifi recently for around $220. I didn't think that b450 would support Ryzen 4000, and at the time it was the best board for my money (Pcie Gen 4 and all that crap). Now that we know more about the RTX 30 series and are eventually going to learn more about the Ryzen 4000 cpus. I'm wondering what the cheapest board that I could get that is mITX would be, that still would support Ryzen 4000 cpus.
  6. Big? Upgrades Here’s what I’ve gotten since the first post NZXT Fans/Strip/Hub Red/Black Cable Extensions Silverstone 650w SFX Power Supply Corsair H100i V2 AIO- ending up getting this from someone on r/hardwareswap for $65 LG 32GK650F-B 1440p 144hz Monitor Everything put in Pic of the monitor That’s pretty much it for the more hardware-ish upgrades. Going to start moving onto more aesthetic (spray paint, vinyl, etc.) stuff here soon, so be on the lookout.
  7. Nah bought it off the subreddit r/hardwareswap. I'm not stressing too much. It's also nuts over there right now, would lose like $100+ on what I paid for it since people are valuing the 2070 super so low right now.
  8. I'm not sweating it too much, was just a little bit of a sting to see the price of the 3070. Just means I can wait 2+ years for the 40 series and upgrade then.
  9. Funnily enough, I didn't know. Been out of the pc scene for a while and learned about the new gen coming out about last week, but you are right, it is a good gpu.
  10. Literally bought a 2070 Super like 3 weeks ago for $475. Could not have been a worse time lol.
  11. I was originally thinking of getting this: Acer Nitro XV340CK. Is this a good pick? Or are there other ones that are cheaper, that perform the same function? I'm pretty much looking for ultrawide 144hz, would prefer 144op as well, but if the price is right, then I'm good with 1080p. The max I would spend is $500, and that's pushing how much I feel comfortable spending.
  12. I really only intend to do this to get some better airflow out of my H210 sff build before I bought an actual sfx PSU. I didn’t realize sfx Psu’s were that different from a regular one so thanks for the info. Might refrain from doing this just to have an extra, actual working PSU after I upgrade. Lots to think about.
  13. So I recently opened up my old psu (hadn't been powered on for at least a year+ if anyone was worrying about safety) and realized that there was a ton of space between the actual pcb and the rest of the case to shrink it. I was wondering if I, cut the area that was unneeded if it would do anything to my psu. I would replace the fan with either a Noctua or just a good fan in general to accommodate for the shrinkage of space. Is this a bad idea? Or would my main problem be cooling over anything else? Here's a pic of the inside of the psu.
  14. Thanks! I do have an AIO cooler coming soon, so I will have a pair of intake fans.
  15. Nice. I didn't think about getting a vinyl cutter, but that might be a good idea, or I could just custom order them from somewhere.
