  1. Also, make sure you at least have the tower OFF THE FLOOR!!!! Yeah it may be the coldest air in the room, but it is a good dust collector! Believe me, I have the pics to prove it!!
  2. Just make sure your drive isn't an M.2 NVMe, it doesn't support that. Good luck
  3. This helps my ego . I was feeling disappointed, like am I losing my touch here????!!!! I mean, I spent $460 ( to order the last 3 components I needed) while waiting for my boss to call me back when I worked a 16 hour day on Wednesday. I feel bad when I make a few wrong choices when building other people PCs, but it is 10X that when it is for my system. (Darn ego!)
  4. I figured that was the case. Just didn't know the raw data numbers! I appreciate the information One other question still floating in my head. I thought about getting a NVMe drive as a scratch drive for my converting programs. With the much higher read and write speeds, it shouldn't take as long to convert videos. Not going to get PCIE4, (price to $ not there yet) but at least PCIE3, should be quick enough to see a difference, besides the big change I should see in CPUs.
  5. So I put the parts into a sys build on PPP. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $173.99 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard Memory G.Skill Ripjaws V 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory $144.99 @ Newegg Case Lian Li Lancool II Mesh ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply Corsair RMx (2018) 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $114.99 @ Corsair Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $433.97 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-08-08 00:41 EDT-0400 Only one issue. Looks like the PSU I bought doesn't have the extra CPU my MB has. I don't think it will matter with the Ryzen 5 3600. But just disappointed in myself for not checking first before purchasing. Just FYI. @Mateyyy and @TofuHaroto of course, I could have picked the wrong part in PPP. guess we shall see when it all gets here, and I assemble. 3 are here, 2 more to go!!!
  6. Well I spent a bunch of money in the last few days. But I think I have my upgrade ordered. Thanks @Mateyyy and @TofuHaroto!! I will do my best to tag you both in the thread for the actual build! Now to modify my desk (preferably before my parts come in) so everything is off the floor! Just have to get the sinks cleaned with my scrub brush that attaches to my power drill, mow the lawn and make a shelf for the modem and router. Pictures on different threads to follow, I HOPE.
  7. @Mateyyy so of course Newegg makes this on sale. Check this out on @Newegg: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18D-16GVK https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232882?Item=N82E16820232882&Source=socialshare&cm_mmc=snc-social-_-sr-_-20-232-882-_-08042020 It's half the size I wanted, but I know everyone keeps saying 16GB is enough. It's the speed I want, just a CL18 instead of CL16. But it is $90 less. Oh the decisions.
  8. So I picked up the Corsair from them. Sadly, all the cases just up and SOLD OUT!! How many roadblocks can I get for this one. LOL I haven't pulled the trigger on CPU or memory yet. At least I got some of the hard thinking stuff out of the way! I can't believe the P300A is out as well. My only issue there is that I have to buy another SSD bracket for what I currently have. GEEZ. I told my daughter, I should get a bigger SSD, But Newegg does have a Crucial NVMe 1TB for about $100.
  9. Well, the Be Quiet is also at B&H. You know I haven't bought much for the new PSU market. I spent too much on my son's Antec 1000W 80+ Platnium for his build. So I am second guessing the CRAP out of this choice for me. You always make some GREAT recommendations for me. SO many choices. LOL
  10. Actually, I just looked again, and at B&H, the PSU is there. It's funny, the R5 3600 went back up to $170. It was at $155 when we started this conversation.
  11. So I got another push notification from Newegg about the X570 Tomahawk. I was able to get it for $220! YAY me. Now to just wait for the other parts on my list to come in. My daughter told me I just need to go for a Blacked out system that has some good power to it. Maybe I should just do that, and add some color (painting the case) later on down the line. Thanks for all the help @Mateyyy and @TofuHaroto. You have both been a big help to me. I can't believe that the power supply that was recommend is gone now. Man, supplies are LOW!!
  12. Yeah sadly it is.if only someone would sponsor it. LMAO. I can't even imagine the hours needed to publish a video on it. You have suggested the B550. I saved it in my PCPartsPicker inventory. So probably just going to pull the trigger and get it. Last choice is case.
  13. You always have a valid point my friend.
  14. I keep wanting to have 2 M.2 PCIE4 drives instead of one. I should take everyone's advice and get the B550 boards that have been suggested. Not sure why I ask so much about this stuff. Maybe because I haven't bought a MB since 2011 or 2012.
