  1. Okay, i have decided to keep my 970 and upgrade the GPU later. Hopefully with one of the new GPU coming up. I have done the following checks to make sure the 970 fits. 1. MSI MAG B550 has 2x PCI-e x16 and the 970 uses 1 PCI-e x16 2. 970 dimensions: 269mm length; 141mm width and 35mm height. Meshify C case fits up to 315mm length GPU. 3. Not really sure about power usage, but i think im safe in assuming it does not require more power then the newer 5700XT. Did i miss anything?
  2. Thanks for going through the trouble creating this build! With the 1TB SSD, i could maybe put an extra HDD in there. I have a Toshiba DT01ACA300 in my current PC, i could use that one or maybe buy another later. Hmm, sounds really interesting. I am really curious about the prices, if they are about same price as the 5700 in the build then its really something to consider. And i suppose the graphics card is not the problem in my current PC, its my CPU. So many choices. What would you do in my position?

I only switched the 5700 XT Pulse for a Red Devil; 660p 1TB SSD for the 2TB; the Cooler Master NR400 case for the Meshify C (not really sure yet) and the Corsair TX 550M for the Seasonic 550. These changes were recommended on that forum, because they produce less noise (except for the case). Also on the Partpicker systembuilder it had these compatibility issues: Warning!Some AMD B450 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Matisse CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions. Note:Some physical dimension restrictions cannot (yet) be automatically checked, such as cpu cooler / RAM clearance with modules using tall heat spreaders. Could this be a serious problem? Any feedback on this build would be appreciated, thank you.
