  1. OK. I've finallly got some time to order and build my new PC. so, at the end I got something like: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor (£259.99 @ Amazon UK) Thermal Compound: Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut 1g 1 g Thermal Paste (£4.98 @ Amazon UK) Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard (£94.98 @ Amazon UK) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory (£153.97 @ Scan.co.uk) Storage: Sabrent Rocket 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (£119.99 @ Amazon UK) Total: £633.91 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-02-10 18:40 GMT+0000 I decided to drop the case and reuse my old one. Sadly I can't identify that one :/ but I think it will works fine at least for now ;) and because I was able to save some money on that, I decided to go for 1TB of storage, as on Tomahawk I got only single .M2 port. What's your opinion guys?
  2. let's say that the aesthetic part is my last concern. I'm used to having a full tower case under my desk. So I prefer to have a bigger case for better cooling and less noise (more low rpm fans?). Of course, if I am buying a new set I would like to buy something 'nice'. I've heard a lot of good stuff about Lian Li Lancool II (I like the idea of having USB C at the top and easy to clean mesh front. But I see that Fractal Design Meshify C mentioned by Vexicus got easy-access dust filters as well (I'm living in a victorian era house so there is A LOT of dust and dirt from old walls and wooden floors)
  3. Thank you @VEXICUS ! Do you have any opinion on MSI Mortar? I know it gets an additional M2 slot and better i/o but form what I read Tomahawk ahs better VRM (maybe because of bigger size?).
  4. Hi @boggy77 WiFi is VERY "nice to have". Right now I have external WiFi antenna : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01IEU7UZ0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And it's fine for now. I wanted WiFi 6, if I would buy new highend motherboard. otherwise I can but WiFi PCIe card for WifI 6 in a year when ax routers will be more popular? Whould you go with Pro Carbon and 3600 ? or would you change anything?
  5. Next question. I've read that MSI Mortar motherboard is not so popular for a single reason, it's not avaiable in the US. But I see it on UK amazon so I think I could use it instead of tomahawk. So I replaced the mobo, drop the cooler, and replace 1TB storage with 500GB one. For saved money I upgraded CPU to 3700X. does it make sense?

BTW, I don't care about RBG, I prefer something more quiet than glam
  7. Also.. I never heard about Sabrent's storage, but looks like they have awesome reviews.. should I replace https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/P4ZFf7/samsung-970-evo-500gb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-mz-v7e500bw with https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/N7zkcf/sabrent-1-tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-sb-rocket-1tb ?

  9. The voice of reason is always appreciated I constantly need more RAM as I am throwing tons of data across the systems and storages and doing lot of DQ and enrichment processes, that's why I would like to have an option to add more modules later. but you are correct. for the same reason, I want two monitors, so maybe X570 and PCIx4 is an overkill
  10. Hello guys, after a decade I would like to upgrade my PC. Below you will find my answers to main questions. Please comment and thank you for all ideas. 1. Budget & Location I would like to spend something around 800 GBP (so location: UK) 2. Aim This will be my 'time off' PC, I love good strategy, and FPS, currently I am playing Escape From Tarkov, but I cant wait for the Cyberpunk. I don't aim for 120FPS as I play 6h a week ? (no, I can't buy console ) I want to build a solid base for annual upgrades. That's why I plan to buy better motherboard, so (maybe) next year I can replace the budget line 3600 with something better, or add 16 more GB or RAM? I would like to keep my PC quiet and fast to boot and game load. I also have to use WiFi at home. That's why I decided to buy X570 to get fastest NVMe available, and WiFi and BT build on the mobo, sadly I was unable to find BT 5.0 and WiFi 6 in this budget (update: I already have an external WiFi antenna, but if I would go for build in WiFi, I would go high end and ax standard) 3. Monitors Right now I have Iiyama ProLite E2607WS. I plan to move to two smaller monitors 4. Peripherals Got everything, however I am considering good wireless headset 5. Why are you upgrading? Well, this setup is over ten years old. while buying GTX1660 Super was an excelence upgrade I know I have to plan more upgrades. 6. What I have: * MSI 1660 6GB Super * Corsair 650W PSU * 1TB of storage in SSDs * Iiyama ProLite E2607WS monitor 7. My current 'want to buy' list: https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/2R0BB7OFXDTMZ?ref_=wl_share storage: Corsair MP600, Force Series, 500GB High-Speed Gen 4 Pcie x4, NVMe M.2 SSD (Sequential read speeds of up To 4, 950MB/S and write speeds of up To 2, 500MB/S) case: Lian-Li Lancool II ARGB Midi-Tower Case - White mobo: Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite WiFi (AMD Ryzen 3000/X570/ATX/PCIe4.0/DDR4/Intel Dual Band 802.11AC WiFi/Front USB Type-C/RGB Fusion 2.0/M.2 Thermal Guard/Gaming Motherboard) cooling: Noctua NH-U12S, Premium CPU Cooler with NF-F12 120mm fan (Brown) CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Processor (6C/12T, 35MB Cache, 4.2 GHz Max Boost) RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3600MHz C18, High Performance Desktop Memory Kit (AMD Optimised) - Black
  11. thanks mate! I've order the MSI one.. maybe Ill switch to M2 soon and drop this HUUUGE case for something smaller
  12. Well.. you are correct, but my PSU died 5 months ago so I have fairly new Corsair VS650.
  13. Hi Guys, finally I got some time (kid is finally 5yo) and I can turn my PC on. Sadly, last time I did that, it was 2010...so my spec is little bit outdated (well.. Cambridge Museum of Technology already called). I plan to move to Ryzen (something like B450 and 3600x) platform later this year, but now I need new GPU, as this would be the easiest way to start the upgrade process with limited budget. After watching LTT GPU buyers guide I know that I can afford 1660 Super, so right now I have two cards on my very short list: MSI NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1660 SUPER VENTUS XS OC Graphics Card 6 GB GDDR https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GEFORCE-Graphics-DisplayPort-Cooling/dp/B07ZPM6WKQ/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=GTX+1660+SUPER&qid=1578153027&refinements=p_76%3A419158031&rnid=1642204031&rps=1&s=computers&sr=1-6 and Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING OC 6G https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GeForce-1660-SUPER-GAMING/dp/B07ZPL9LX5/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=GTX+1660+SUPER&qid=1578153027&refinements=p_76%3A419158031&rnid=1642204031&rps=1&s=computers&sr=1-1 The tech spec looks the same (?) so its only the card lenght and additional fan? I have pretty large box (to fit all these HDDs, DVDs, external control panels from 2005), so I am OK with the GB. Is there anything that I should be aware of? RIght now I am sitting on Gigabyte P55A-UD5 (spec: http://www.pc-specs.com/mobo/GigaByte/GigaByte_GA-P55A-UD5/1765) If I am correct, both cards ARE compatible with this mobo (yes, I know intel i5 will be a bottleneck for 6 months, but I just need some extra frames here and there). Kind regards, kane
  14. Hi guys, because of this video I am thinking about replacing my HD6900 and buying MSI NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1660 SUPER VENTUS XS (amazon uk: https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GEFORCE-Graphics-DisplayPort-Cooling/dp/B07ZPM6WKQ/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=MSI+GeForce+GTX+1660+SUPER+VENTUS+XS+OC&qid=1578136391&sr=8-2 ) Now.. I have a pretty old PC and MSI support is not available right now. Is there a chance to check if this MSI card will be compatible with my Gigabyte P55A-UD5 motherboard? Accordingly to : http://www.pc-specs.com/mobo/GigaByte/GigaByte_GA-P55A-UD5/1765 I should be fine? I plan to upgrade the rest to Ryzen 3600 later this year, but I need a new GPU now there is also gigabyte version: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GeForce-1660-SUPER-GAMING/dp/B07ZPL9LX5/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=GTX+1660+SUPER&qid=1578153027&refinements=p_76%3A419158031&rnid=1642204031&rps=1&s=computers&sr=1-1 Sadly I can't compare these two as I build my PC once every 10 years.
