  1. that's fair i didn't think about shipping logistics for PPE. And its not so much as the 3900x, but its successor as I do like to have it be future proof. Makes things easier on me.
  2. so the part list is a temporary set until zen 3 (or 4 i forget what they're on) releases later this year along with the 3000 line. Now: amd 3600x w/ a 2060 rtx and 32 gb of 3200 ddr4 then: something akin to their 3900x but 4900x or whatever and their 3080ti I don't remember parts being so scarce before. I remember the bit mining crap, but between motherboards, gpus, cases, and ssds so much was out of stock or back ordered...
  3. I actually don't own anything to try it out with. I thought i said it in the post, but i don't have my CPU or GPU yet for another few weeks (past the return date) due to back order, and due to my new living conditions all my stuff is 2000 miles away. I would if i could
  4. hello all, as the title says I'm building a PC and I haven't been in the game since 2011 (back when the 580 was still big)! And as such I'm fairly overwhelmed by monitor choices but have narrowed it down to 3 candidates: LG 34GN850-B Alienware AW3420DW (currently sitting in a box next to me but haven't opened and have till the 15th to return) Samsung G7 Price isn't a factor as I plan to keep these for as long as I kept my last one but I'm worried im going to have buyers remorse after i choose one. Each seems to have a flaw so I thought I'd get some opinions before i go finalizing anything. I bought the AW originally, but am worried when i started reading that its fairly dim and doesn't do well with reflections. LG i've had some trouble in the past with but have never bought a monitor from them. And samsung people are going back and forth about. I saw linus loved it so I gave it a look and saw it has some backlight bleed, but I'm not sure if that's a big deal to me. I know there's no best end all be all of monitors, but I'd like to buy something I know i won't look at other monitors and say, "man what if..." like i do with my motorcycles (can never own enough!)
  5. Budget (including currency): right around 3k US Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mostly gaming, but i use it for 3d modeling for work occasionally when i bring my work home (CAD) Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Basically I have a build concept and PC part list in mind already, but with the new hype surrounding the RTX 3000 line and the new ZEN 3 that may or may not both come out this year is it worth to wait for it? I have an alienware 17r4 i got back in 2016 with some discounts (i7-6700, gtx 1070, 32 gb of ram). It's showing its age lately. Borderlands 3 runs at medium settings but lags sometimes. Lately its been freezing (the system), either with or without processes running in the background. Other times, I've closed it just to have the system freeze about a minute later just looking at amazon on firefox. This is all new to this computer as it wasn't doing it this past week. What I'm trying to avoid is having another 2016 where I bought a 970 just for the 1070 to release in just a few months time, but at the same time its starting to push me toward just building the system already with a 2080ti and a 3900x and getting it over with already. I've pushed this desire back from January of this year to now and waiting longer is starting to get harder idk. if this formatting is wrong, let me know. New member sorry.
