  1. Hi all! I'm having trouble deciding and need your help on the motherboard choice to my old trusty editing/gaming machine. Current setup: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 CPU: AMD FX.8350 4Ghz GPU: ASUS GTX660-DC2T-2GD5 RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance DDR3 1866Mhz 24GB in a 2x4Gb and a 2x8Gb kit Power: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850W v2 From that basis I want to upgrade as much as I can on the most cost effective way. I use the PC for heavy editing in Davinci in 4K RAW (mostly C200 footage, but in the next coming year anything can happen) and 1080p gaming. I chose the Ryzen 7 3700x due to its performance to price ratio and probably will buy an Asus RTX 2070 Super. As the motherboard I was thinking that the Asus STRIX-E is nice, but really expensive, however good Wifi is a most for now. (the TUF-PLUS Wifi lacks some features, dont now if those are really necessary if not planning heavy OC) I need a possibly long lasting setup which is as future proof as it can be. Right now I can not buy the GPU for some reasons, so the CPU, motherboard is in first place. What is you opinion? Roughly in the same price category (the STRIX-E and the 3700x would be around $730 for me, because in Hungary we have 27% VAT) is there a better option, maybe that includes new RAM or M.2, external WIFI card with same performance as the built in etc. Also the upgrade from FX-8350 to Ryzen worth that kind of money or better off with just a GPU. Thanks for the help guys!
