  1. @DutchGuyTom - You win! Controller works perfectly. Who knew you needed all the parts for a wireless component hooked up for it to actually work? You did....you did.
  2. @DutchGuyTom - All of your responses make perfect sense - and the only thing on the controller troubleshooting I haven't tried yet - is connecting the antennas...I didn't even think about that. I always hardwire my gaming machines, and I thought those were just for wifi - so I didn't connect em. I'm going to try that and report back. On number 2 - that's the schooling I was hoping for. I needed a re-alignment on my expectations. Thanks again!! Cheers,
  3. Thanks for the replies folks! CPU issue - when I was ordering parts - all the CPU's I wanted were on back-order (probably COVID related) So I always planned on upgrading that - It's a good call-out. I won't be switching to AMD any time soon. GPU - yes - I was worried that when I bought the card a few months ago that the new ones would be coming soon. I didn't wait - my fault. I'll probably grab a 3090 just because I want one. @DutchGuyTom - Any help/advice here is appreciated! 1 - I'll post when I re-run. I'm using the time-spy overall system benchmark and getting ~13,500 score. 2 - Most games running at 4k with max settings come in between 30-50 fps. I've tried on a couple different monitors with different refresh rates. But not even getting 60 as the baseline seems "Off" to me. 3 - Yes - sorry not network lag - low FPS. 4 - The Bluetooth unit on the motherboard is an intel model - don't know exactly which one - but I've grabbed the lastest drivers from intel and from Asus and tried both - it wont allow me to connect to either of my xBox One Bluetooth controllers - which are on the latest drivers./firmware - and work on my other computers fine.
  4. Budget (including currency): I spent probably around $4000 USD for everything. Country: The States of America...Get it? Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Video Editing, Music Production, 3D Animation, Mostly Gameplay. I built it with Cyberpunk 2077 in mind. 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): Folks - I need help. I decided it was about time to build a new machine. It's been over 10 years since I last build a Desktop. I've been running Asus ROG laptops that entire time. I went in with no expectation of budget. I wanted to get as high-end of components as I could and put it all together - and I wanted to stay in the Asus ROG Family for every component that I could. So I built what I thought was a monster...and I'm wondering if I need some schooling. Here are the Specs. CPU - Intel Core i9-9820X (10-core) w/ROG Ryujin AIO Cooler MB - ROG STRIX X299-E Gaming II RAM - 64GB DDR4 3200 M.2 - 2x Western Digital Black 2TB Drives. 1 Samsung 960 PRO 1TB SATA - 10TB WD Drive, (Left overs from external drives 8TB WD Drive, and 4 TB WD Drive) GPU - ASUS ROG STRIX 2080 Ti PS - Thermaltake Toughpower 1200w Gold Case - ROG STRIX Helios GX601 So..yeah - went nuts. But I legitimately do a lot with this Machine - on TOP of which I basically wanted it to play my current library of games, and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 flawlessly in 4K. Most of what I do with the machine (internet, Music Production, Graphic Design, Video Editing, even boot up - is lightening-fast.) But Games lag more than I thought they should on max settings. I'm not super stoked on the framerates I'm getting - by all accounts - this thing should be a monster, smooth and excellent. But it feels low for the horsepower I THOUGHT I was paying for.. 3dMark Benchmark scores are in the 13000's and avg FPS is around 80-90. I'm also having issues with the bluetooth controller - I cannot for the life of me - no matter what I do with drivers, get the controller to sync over Bluetooth. It connects to my ASUS ROG Laptop just fine - but to this desktop - I have to be hardwired, or I get nothing. So - I would love some advice - Did I just choose overly expensive, and bad hardware? Do I not know how to get the BIOS dialed in right (highly likely)? Are these motherboards known for having finicky Bluetooth controllers? Fire away!
