  1. Awesome, well I think I'm going to go ahead and just do a 1660 Ventus XS OC with the 3100. Total with Mobo is around 815. If the 3600 drops in the next few weeks, given the fact the new CPUs came out (though they're ridiculously expensive), I'll go ahead and buy the 3600. If not, I'll go for the 3100.
  2. I was thinking about a 75hz monitor at 1080p. Do you agree with Le monke?
  3. I was thinking about replacing the 1650 and just flat out going with a 1660 for 210. Worth it or just risk it and go used?
  4. Yep! It's not the ugly green ones, it's the ones with the black casing.
  5. Awesome! So I might look around for things on Ebay, if I can't find anything I'll just buy something new like a 580 or 570. The RAM is dual stick if that's what you were talking about, and you're right, I would love newer ram with more Mhz.
  6. Not sure what your system can handle, but given your monitor budget I would recommend this one: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16824236755?Description=Asus gaming monitor&cm_re=Asus_gaming monitor-_-24-236-755-_-Product&quicklink=true 75hz and 1ms, plus it’s on sale and we love sales
  7. I was lucky and hit right in the spot to where I will completely recover with no side effects besides maybe some restricted movement in my neck. Thank you taking the time to respond! Got it for the GPU, never knew about used PC parts market. Am I able to trust it? What if the parts are malfunctioning? And for the PSU, I am definitely going to take a look at that list! Very helpful. I should have mentioned the memory, I already had some from a system my friend wanted to fix and I was the only one of his close friends who knew how to upgrade systems/fix them. He wanted new fancy RGB RAM, so I put that in and asked what he wanted to do with his 3000mhz 8GB kit of corsair RAM, and he just said I could keep it. Is that a good amount? Or should I invest in two more sticks for 16GB? I never have more than 5 chrome tabs open, so I should be fine. I also never multitask games/chrome so I thought it should be enough. For the motherboard, I’ve built with it before and oh boy it is such a dreamy motherboard. Amazing BIOS, easy everything let me tell you. I found a cheaper MSI Mobo I can go with, but I will stick with MSI as I am SUPER familiar with it. And I just don’t like console, never have. Plus all my GTA memory would be lost. :( Overall, this was super helpful and in depth. I want to thank you for taking the time to do this! :)
  8. Just my opinion, but why spend an extra 500 bucks for a little hassle. I would keep the 11 for another year or two, and upgrade when you really need to. AGAIN MY OPINION, YOU MAY NOT AGREE!
  9. Also, I am able to add 200 dollars to the budget IF NEEDED. If I can get what I'm asking for for under, you guys are amazing, if not, add an extra little spice and I will consider. Thanks you all!
  10. Budget (including currency): 900 USD Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Rocket league, GTAV, Apex, and CS:GO (Mostly surf lol) 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): List I was thinking about will be provided, monitor needs to be included in price, upgrading from old Alienware gaming laptop, I can wait a few months if needed, I need to wait at least one month as I plan to build it once we move into a new house, as long as I can get 1080p, high settings, 60fps I'll be fine. I had a medical emergency (broke C1 and C2 and a shoulder in a car accident) where my system where I was planning on spending 4K is now lost. I still need a system as I will no longer be going outside for, well, anything. Spending the next few months in the swiss alps (on the peloton, not actually) and hopefully at a new setup. **CPU** | [AMD Ryzen 3 3100 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ndwkcf/amd-ryzen-3-3100-36-ghz-quad-core-processor-100-100000284box) | $123.81 @ Amazon **Motherboard** | [MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jcYQzy/msi-b450-tomahawk-max-atx-am4-motherboard-b450-tomahawk-max) | $124.99 @ Best Buy **Storage** | [Crucial P1 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pxKcCJ/crucial-p1-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-ct1000p1ssd8) | $102.99 @ Amazon **Video Card** | [Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER 4 GB WINDFORCE OC Video Card](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MdFKHx/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1650-super-4-gb-windforce-oc-video-card-gv-n165swf2oc-4gd) | $169.99 @ Amazon **Case** | [Corsair 275R Airflow ATX Mid Tower Case](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/sY9tt6/corsair-275r-airflow-atx-mid-tower-case-cc-9011181-ww) | $84.99 @ Amazon **Power Supply** | [EVGA BQ 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/8P7CmG/evga-bq-500w-80-bronze-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-110-bq-0500-k1) | $62.89 @ Amazon **Monitor** | [Asus VG248QG 24.0" 1920x1080 165 Hz Monitor](https://pcpartpicker.com/product/hy4BD3/asus-vg248qg-240-1920x1080-165-hz-monitor-vg248qg) | $204.98 @ Newegg | *Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts* | | **Total** | **$874.64**
