  1. Thanks for all the responses! I figured I'd just pull the trigger since they've been talking about new chips for a while. The best way for those chips to release is for me to buy something now lol. (Always has worked in the past.) Worst case I can always upgrade next year after they work all the bugs out of the new stuff. The graphics card could be improved but I didn't see a huge improvement in performance until you get into 2080 ti which is a lot more $, that and again the newer cards will be out and proven next year so I may upgrade then. The ram is a touch excessive but I figure "overhead" for now. /shrug PSU I got a good deal on otherwise I probably would have gone Corsair. I didn't see much improvement for "gaming" between the ryzen and intel. She doesn't do any work that would require the extra core bonus of the ryzen. Also the ryzen seemed more expensive flagship for flagship at least at this moment. Just explaining why I chose what I did. Please correct me if I'm way off base. Thanks again.
  2. Budget (including currency): 2500+ Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: General Gaming 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): Old pc: HP p7-1026 New build list: Fractal Meshify S2 white I7-10700k Asus Strix Z490 E-Gaming 32Gb Vengence Pro RGB 3200mhz C16 MSI RTX 2070 Super Gaming X Trio Thermaltake Toughpower 80+ Gold Nzxt Z63 aio 1Tb Samsung Evo M.2 2280 (will expand later I know its kinda small) I want it to be able to play games at 1440p at 60+ fps comfortably for the next few years. Monitor: BenQ Ex2780q Keyboard: S.S. Apex 7 How'd I do? I'm definitely a casual at pc building. Also it seems like a lot of things are priced higher than they were at the beginning of year. Am I missing anything? Recommendations? Initially I was going to go with i9 but they are scarce atm and I didn't want to spend the extra $ going to Ryzen 3900 etc.
