  1. Money isn't exactly no object - if I was to go with the 3960x I would be looking at the MSI Creator MB https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Creator-TRX40-Motherboard-USB3-2/dp/B081FXBWTD as a possibility as well.
  2. Do you have any suggestions for better SSD / Power supply for what I'm doing?
  3. Ah that's a shame - I didn't realize that it wouldn't be compatible with a 2nd gen because it's a Ryzen board. Should I look at the Asus ROG Zenith Extreme in that case? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/zkx9TW/asus-rog-zenith-extreme-eatx-tr4-motherboard-rog-zenith-extreme
  4. Budget (including currency): Any Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: High-end gaming, Video Editing, Audio Production. 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): Hi folks, I need help with my selection of a motherboard. This is my first build, and I have already acquired all the other components except for the motherboard itself. But it seems like every high-end motherboard I look at has few reviews and, being a first-time builder, it's a little scary. Like I said, this is the final component I need to buy, and this board seems to have everything I need. I should also note that wifi and bluetooth are important features for me.

  5. Thank you so much for digging into this! I'll study this list for sure.
  6. Thanks for the tips! I'll definitely start digging into this.
  7. Unfortunately I can't wait too long, as my work is getting too taxing on my current rig and I need to be able to keep up with client requests. Is there a particular component you would recommend waiting for?
  8. Budget (including currency): $3500 USD Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I am a video editor and audio producer for a living. I need a rig that can easily handle editing 2k video footage at minimum, and that won't start chugging on me when I'm working with a lot of layers. I heavily use Adobe Premiere and Adobe Audition for work. I will also be gaming on this rig, and it would be great to be able to play the latest games at great performance & quality. 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): Lots of hard drive space is important, and I'd really like to run a high-capacity SSD as the boot drive. I'm going to be buying soon - within the next week or two ideally. I plan to run three monitors. This will be my first-ever build, so I'm a little nervous. I've been watching LTT for a while now and I feel like this is my best path forward for my work. Thanks in advance!
