  1. So I was just wondering if a 2070 super (Asus rog to be specific) was $650 used for 3 ish months vs a rx 5700 xt (gigabyte gaming OC to be specific again) brand new at $680 which one would you pick? This is kind of urgent and I've been told to return my unopened and card and get the 2070 super as it's a bargain! Note: Currency is AUS Thanks, Max
  2. Im not that knowledgeable about RAM but i dont think the G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2x8GB) 4000MHz CL18 DDR4 can down-clock to cl16? even at $25 more you'd say go for the 3600Mhz
  3. Yeah maybe i will. Thanks. But ive heard AMD doesn't benefit as much from Mhz that CAS latency
  4. Whats better out of 4000Mhz cl18 or 3600Mhz cl16? i will put this on a b450m Mortar Max... Note that the 4000Mhz is $25 cheaper. Ill be running a Ryzen 7 3700X and Gigabyte rx 5700 xt Thanks, Max
  5. ive just never bought anything from amazon before... and i dont think i know anyone who has. They only recently 'moved' to Australia, and spending around $2000 on a PC i guess i want to go somewhere that i know... i looked up reviews though and amazon seems good! so if they have a cheaper item ill be happy to buy it. Newegg actually has pretty horrible reviews and im not even saving that much money.. so it really is a no from me. and as a worldwide "go to" ive never heard of them. Amazon at least is world renown.
  6. Thankyou for explaining that! i think im either sticking to the crucial P1 or Corsair MP510. (i wouldn't mind your opinion on which one) I swear i only have afew more questions left. Because of the SSD size i wanted to save money elsewhere. And im down to have 140mm fans too... these are just really cheap!! Edit: should I maybe get a 3 pack or 2 pack and get some 140mm fans and not cheap out on a 4x fans for $19. Though the caee cones with 2x fans already so it will be filled with 6
  7. i had a look, i might get a 1TB Corsair MP510 for $219 compared to Crucial's P1 at $189 and it moves up 2 tiers on your list! do you think that the $30 more is worth it?
  8. The P1. Ohh i didn't know that about SSD's by larger writes do you mean the ~75% full rule (where ssd's slow donwn) or larger files? Do you have any recommendations? i liked the look of the HP EX920 but it currently not available in Australia. Edit: is Adata SX8200's good? Or intels 660p? Oh wait writes is its lifespan right! no i think i remember what they are lol
  9. Ok thats a great recommendation! i think ill go with the B450M unless you say get the tomahawk as the prices on those two are just too good!! I think ill keep the Meshify Case then for later use. Ive talked to someone and im going to get the crucial 1tb SSD for $189 for the boot drive and have my 4TB HHD barracuda as the place where i stire games, movies and well everything.
  10. Yes i might actually give this a try, i think ill be paying abit more but will be worth it! Great recommendation.
  11. Would you say take the B450M and save $70? then i can get a better GPU or CPU. Hmmm i was just looking at SSD speeds between the 2.5" and M.2 NVMe speeds and honestly, its faster but really not by alot... Would you say i could almost get a tomahawk B450 motherboard and maybe start off with a 2.5" SSD and then as M.2 get cheaper and better i would possibly buy one? if that makes sense?
  12. Ok Thankyou! I think you've ive narrowed it down to 2x B450 boards now! I just found the MSI B450M Mortar Max which looks really good and surprisingly has 2x M.2 slots. Im just not sure as it is a mATX, and the other would be the MSI Pro Carbon. What are your thoughts?? i watched a video on it and apparently it is really good. It is also quite cheap! and i can possibly get a Ryzen 7 3700x or RX 5700 XT. Also thankyou for the link! Edit: Sorry!! is it worth getting the mortar max with PCIe 3.0 if the gpu has a PCIe 4.0?? sorry ive confused myslef now
  13. For buying a new PC and dishing out (for me) alot of money, i want to purchase off sites that mates have used or i know is trustworthy. Sorry i thought u meant to purchase of sites like Newegg, which apparently in Australia isnt very good at all and so "Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard ($310.20 @ Newegg Australia)" i wouldn't want to get from them despite the price. But thankyou ive actually changed my build abit because of the parts list
  14. Oh so why did you say before that "X570-P does not support wireless connection at all" if i was to use the Gigabyte card to "add Wifi with USB dongles or PCIe card" wouldn't it give the motherboard wireless connection?? Ohh ok that makes sense. Im sorry but other than the GPU, if i do use both M.2 slots on the B450, it will disable the PCIe 2,3,4 and 5. Will that affect my build in any way and what would those slots be used for possibly in the future. I guess what else connects to PCIe slots that i might miss out one? I just want to know what ill miss out on, but yes getting SATA ssd's sound like and easy fix to my issue, its just then why get the motherboard with 2x M.2 Slots if im going to intentionally get an SSD not to put there? Should i maybe try not save money (in regards to 2nd Gen motherboards) and just get a 3rd gen board for convenience and potential in the future? So for VRM where do i find a motherboards 'efficiency' or unit of how good / bad they are?
