  1. What is the top-mid 10-pin connector for? And are the PCIe and CPU connector the same on the PSU end? If so, could i buy an extra EPS cable to my 8+4 pin motherboard.
  2. That was also my thought. I will probably end up doing that.
  3. Thank you all for the responses. I did prefer going with the 3600, but i was thrown of by the fact, that i could get very similiar performance (today) at a lower price. I will probably go with the 3600 as it will last longer and it would be easier and cheaper to upgrade in the future.
  4. I live in Denmark, so price are a bit higher compared to the US. My budget is about 1000-1200 US$. This is my go-to parts list at the moment: Part Name Price in US Case Phanteks Eclipse P400A - RGB $ 117,56 Motherboard MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC $ 156,10 CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 $ 236,46 CPU Cooling Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition $ 41,96 RAM CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO 16 GB 3200 MHz $ 105,21 GPU Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super OC $ 283,63 Storage Kingston A2000 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD $ 81,70 Power Supply Corsair RM550x Modular $ 111,46 Total price for Parts $ 1.134,08 Remarks: Case: Good airflow and 3 fans (With RGB!) Motherboard: Has an extra 4-pin ATX connecter, which my PSU doens't have. I think i should be fine as i aren't going to do any extreme overclocking. It's basically a Tomahawk Max with integrated WiFi and Bluetooth(!), better audio and Intel LAN and it is only 24 US$ extra. CPU Cooler + RAM: I think i am good on RAM clearance to the CPU cooler, but not entirely sure. PSU: I would like a good quality modular PSU. You are welcome to critic my build.
  5. I am building my first gaming pc and have come to a dilemma. I am planning on getting a GTX 1660 Super, but am unsure on the CPU. Should i get the i5-9400F with a B365 motherboard and 2666 MHz RAM or the Ryzen 5 3600 with a B450 motherboard and 3200 MHz RAM (which is about 105 US$ more expensive)? I know the 3600 is probably to powerful compared to the GPU, but this would make it cheaper and easier to upgrade in the future (just the graphics card compared to motherboard, CPU and possibly RAM)
