  1. Thanks, I been watching LTT for years (ever since back in NCIX), but only popped onto the forms today. I'm surprised how well the GTX960 has held up, first wall I've really hit was HZD.
  2. CPU and GPU area always the last thing I buy for a planned system anyways, because of releases (unless a great sale comes along). So I'm not opposed to waiting on them. I am hoping to have something up and running by the end of the year. My stream chug is really getting me down on the titles I want to play, and I've been super excited for some upcoming titles I don't think my current rig can handle (like Cyberpunk). I was already planning on waiting to see what happens after the 3000 series are announced (also I think September from what I've heard?). I do want something that'll do Ray tracing.
  3. Budget (including currency): $3600 CAD Country: Canada Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Primarily Gaming & Streaming, Some office work and 3D printing design Other details: So I'm build a new system from the ground up as my current system can't really be upgraded. It does well enough for now, but I've noticed some more recent games get kind of slide-show like while streaming (on stream only, local gameplay is fine). So I'm aiming for something fairly high end, but still with room for future upgrades. Here's the current build plan I've put together. This is the first time I've ever gone with liquid cooling so I decided to go with an AIO, and i'm also deciding to embrace the RGB for the first time, so I've gone with a build that should all work with Corsair iCUE to keep things (theoretically) easier on myself. I was originally planning on going with a different case, the Obsidian Series 500D RGB SE, then realized it was too tall for where I was going to put it. I would like to have front panel USB-C but I'm limited by the clearance i have, so I may have to reorganize where I'm going to put the case, at which point I'll probably go back to the Obsidian. my clearance is no more than 473cm tall.
