  1. @johnnypharaoh here's the parts list that I came up with. Sorry it took me a few days.

If you want to, I would also recommend waiting for a partner model Rx 5700. Some other things you might want to change are the case and monitor. If you want to cut the cost a little, you can also go for different memory. ****One last thing, the motherboard will require a bios update to work with the 3600, so you may want to get one with USB flashback, or an x570 chipset.**** Here's a link to AMD's page on the issue: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/pa-100
  2. If you are able to, test the graphics card with the other system.
  3. Ok, I'll start making a parts list. If you are comfortable with it, you could also browse the used market in your area to save some money.
  4. Do you want to build one, or buy pre-built? Do you need just the tower, or also a monitor and keyboard/mouse?
  5. The 3700 should perform nearly as good as the 3700x if you have a good power delivery system and cooling solution. I'm not sure if the clock speed updates will/have fixed that, as I haven't seen new benchmarks.
  6. Do you have any other hardware that you could use to test your system? Maybe another system to test the monitor? Also, what cable are you using? If the problem was with your connectivity, you would most likely just experience lag instead of black frames.
  7. As @RobFRaschke said, zen 2's precision boost basically maxes out the performance. You could try overclocking, but don't expect any better results.
  8. I would recommend just taking a resolution that's roughly double the one you will be using.
  9. Thanks, I'm watching some of his videos now, and think I've found a camera. I'll check that out.
  10. I am planning on doing some networking in house, and have decided to add some security cameras as well. I would like some suggestions, as I have no experience in this area. Here is what I am looking for: - A software for managing the cameras - PoE camera with at least 20m night vision, 1080x1920 resolution, at least 30fps It would be also be nice for some zoom, audio recording, and some motion detection (through software). I am willing to spend around $100 per Camera.
  11. I believe you can. I'm not sure if you will be able to get full cat 6 range, though.
  12. An overwatch update probably optimized the game for the newer generation of card. Try using Unigine Heaven at max settings for a while. I used taht for my OC and haven't had any artifacting since.
  13. Overclocking should not damage your card, unless you increase the voltage too high, or let temps get out of control. As for the artifacting, it could depend on what program you are using to stress test.
