Incase that link doesnt work,
Ryzen 7 3800X with a Corsair H60
EVGA 2070 super 8GB XC Hybrid
Corsair RM 850W 80+ Gold Fully modular PSU
G.Skill Trident Z RGB 64GB (4 x 16GB) 3600 CL18 (I'm aware that CL18 isn't that good and that i dont need that much RAM)
MSI MPG x570 Gaming Edge Wifi
2x intel 660p 1TB M.2 NVME SSD
1x Samsung 860 Evo 1TB SSD
1x SanDisk Ultra 1TB SSD
Case is Lian Li O11Dynamic PCMR edition
Lets go ahead and assume I have both boards in my possession, so availability and price are not being taken into consideration. All the parts in the list are what i currently have.
First, here is what I currently do with my build. I mostly play games at 1440p with settings set as high as they can be. Occasionally I play around with Linux virtual machines. As of now, I'm not doing much if any overclocking, but that is starting to change.
Currently I'm leaning towards the Aorus Master, however I'm concerned I'm going to see a decline in GPU performance when I install an m.2 in the lower 2 slots it will drop my GPU to a pcie 4.0 x8 so that it will run at gen4 x4 from the CPU. Neither my GPU or my M.2 are gen 4, so I'm not sure if I will see a decline, and I'm only using a 2070 super. Does anyone know if I will see that decline, or if it will be noticeable?
Both have 2.5g lan, wifi 6 and bluetooth 5.
What do you think? Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
