  1. So I've done some research and found that the MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS AMD AM4 ATX has some pretty decent reviews. I found that the Asus board had quite a few people with bios issues, which I would like to avoid. Here's what my build looks like now. Also, I read in a review that some of these motherboards only allow certain PSU's as they require a certain pin. How do I know if it's going to be compatible? I decided to spend $10 extra on a 650w psu, just to ensure that I have enough power.

  2. To be completely honest, I don't really know what pcie 4 is or what it does. I don't really know much about computer specs, it'll be my first build by myself. From the list that @Stormseeker9 suggested, I think the X570 Prime-P is kind of my budget as it's almost $300.
  3. Is there any real downgrade between the two boards? Will I have problems in the future? I've noticed it's about $70 cheaper. Not sure if that's a bad thing.
  4. Why not that board? This was recommended several times yesterday. I won't necessarily be doing anything too hardcore - ie gaming or working with 4k videos etc. If I was to go with the 3900x and use 16gb, I could always buy another stick when I can afford it. I'd like the computer to last at least 5 years, but I also don't want to be a complete overkill if it's not needed. Hahaha, who know planning a build could be this stressful.
  5. Hi Guys! I've finally got a build locked down that I'm happy with. After getting some help the other day from the forum, I've decided to switch my build over to AMD rather than Intel. Now, I'm not too sure which CPU I should purchase for my needs - Photoshop, Video Editing, Photo Editing, Multi-tasking, and Gaming. While I plan to game on the build, I'm not overly concerned about losing a few frames as I'll still mainly be using my consoles. Having used an i7 3770 for the past seven years, I'd ideally like to have a computer that lasts. Now, is there a great difference between the 3700x and the 3900x? I'm trying to stick to a $2500 AUD budget, so going for a 3900x will mean that I can only purchase 16gb, whereas the 3700x will allow me to run 32gb with my budget. It's also worth mentioning that I don't plan on doing any overclocking and would prefer to keep things as simple as possible. I'd love to hear your opinions on which CPU I should purchase. Also, if there is anything you think I should change with my build, please just let me know.

  6. I really appreciate all that information, it has definitely helped! Combining what you mentioned above and @fasauceome, would you say that something like this would work well and last a few years? https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/4VvGvn I think the list includes everything I need. Would it be worth upgrading to the 3800x or would it be quite pointless for my needs?

  7. Okay, I'll definitely look into AMD as well. One thing I haven't been able to understand is Motherboards, is there any major differences (for me) between one that costs $200 and another that is over $300?
  8. The price that was included was them building it for me. But as you mentioned, it is significantly cheaper to build it myself. Should I build it myself, could you guys recommend an intel build? No particular reason for Intel, just personal preference.
  9. I'm just worried about building it myself and not knowing how to fix an issue should something not work etc?
  10. Hi Guys! I've tried posting on Reddit and other forums looking for help, but have unfortunately had no luck. I've done a lot of research on parts but would love to get some advice/opinions before I go ahead and purchase everything I need. I'll essentially be using this PC for Photoshop, Video Editing, and Gaming. While I'm mainly a console gamer, I would like to the option to run the likes of GTA and other general FPS titles. I currently use a two-screen setup - 32" 1440p and a 28" 1080p. I have a budget of $2,500 AUD ($1,700 USD) and would ideally like to make the computer last several years before having to make any major upgrades. I'm currently using a 7 year old i7 3770 with a GTX 750. So, anything will be an upgrade at this point. This is the current lists of parts that I was looking to purchase: https://www.pccasegear.com/sc/gJ4 I'm a little hesitant to build the computer myself, in fear that I break something, having something not work, and generally just configuring all the settings. So, unfortunately, I'm looking at $150 to have it built. Any advice on parts or opinions on my current build would be greatly appreciated.
