    2nd PC build, need some insight

    Yeah, thanks for all the suggestions, but I'm perfectly fine with a decent RTX 2070 or RTX 2060. I don't need all the power that a 2080 offers, and would rather put my money into other things. (namely: my processor, case, MOBO, ram)

    Well, i like the idea of the 2080, but i like the aesthetics and future-proofing that my build has. (Not to mention I don't need the 2080's graphics capabilities anyway especially if i'm sacrificing some motherboard capabilities)

Thanks for all your help guys p.s. - if you notice any incompatibilities in this list let me know

    https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-X470-AORUS-ULTRA-GAMING/dp/B07BZ239Z2/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=gigabyte+auros+am4&qid=1560294375&s=gateway&sr=8-2 So if i were to get this MOBO, with a Ryzen 3 2200g. And then save up to upgrade for a much better ryzen 3000 (when they are released), would this be a good motherboard for some of the middle-high teir ryzen 3000's do you think?

    2nd PC build, need some insight

    I'm just looking to future-proof my PC a bit in case i get a higher-end processor later down the road. And since it had a pretty big sale on it i looked at it as an option (also since it seemed to have a pretty solid price for what it was offering)

    2nd PC build, need some insight

    Yeah, it definitely looks cooler. seems to have more sturdy parts on it also. Let me know what you think about the AORUS pro i linked above as it has a similar price point with that sale.

    I also found a decent Aorus on sale, if you think that has decent heatsinks and will pair well with my system, not much more expensive https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-Z390-AORUS-PRO-Motherboard/dp/B07HRZKPXM/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=gigabyte+auros&qid=1560292487&s=gateway&sr=8-4

    i did find some Asus prime Z390 MOBO's for around 20-30 dollars more, and if that Z370 is really not that great then IMO that would be worth an extra 20 bucks.

    2nd PC build, need some insight

    Do you think the Ryzen 3600 will have better single core performance then the Intel I7-8700? Yeah, in all honestly the coolermaster seemed sorta garbage for it's price. Also, since the B360 is pretty cheap, do you think i could squeeze in a slightly better MOBO (for looks and performance :p)?

    Alright cool, that motherboard looks a lot better in my opinion. Any recommendations for a cheap aftermarket cpu cooler?

    2nd PC build, need some insight

    So, what would you recommend for a motherboard upgrade (that isn't too much pricier) from the one in Herman's parts list? Because everything else seems pretty solid.

    2nd PC build, need some insight

    Does the I7-8700 come with a cooler? or would i have to pick one out as well? Also, does improving the cpu at the cost of the motherboard quality hurt performance at all?
  13. So my old pc that I built for around 700 usd is finally crapping out, constantly crashing and running a steady 20 fps in Diablo 3 regardless of settings and it crashes when playing mostly anything else.. My budget is pref under $1200, going to be using is for gaming, and some video editing (as well as web browsing of course). Currently running 2 somewhat basic monitors. I put together some things on pc part picker but I want a second opinion to whether all of the parts will work nicely together or not.
