  1. With a £2500 budget you can get a nice 1440p screen in with that. Spending that much to game at 1080p is a waste (Assuming your current 24" are 1080p ?) You can easily get a 2080 ti as well if you wanted. The new 3000 series will be a good few months yet so depends if you want to wait.

  2. Looks like you went on pcpartpicker and just selected the most expensive parts. Those builds are just ridiculous. Why do you need 256GB of Ram and RTX Titan SLI ? Are you editing movies for Hollywood ?
  3. As mentioned you don't really need a 3900X. You can use the gpu for encoding. Also please take zero notice of any bottleneck website.
  4. The driver issues can be fixed though. Of course if the op wants to go Nvidia then his choice. The 2060 is a bit slower though for the most part.
  5. It makes no sense to spend that much on a wifi adapter when you could just get a better board instead with onboard wifi.
  6. The RX 5700 XT isn't a whole lot more, but it would take you a bit over the £100. You could opt for a cheaper Gigabyte board like the Z390 UD but the one below will handle a 9900K better if you go down that road later on. You would probably want a better cooler as well for that cpu.

  7. Don't buy that crappy Asus board. You could get the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro for £17 more if you wanted a board that could handle a 9900K down the line. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/MVPKHx/gigabyte-z390-aorus-pro-atx-lga1151-motherboard-z390-aorus-pro
  8. A Gen 4 SSD is a total waste of money, especially for a gaming pc.
  9. Any of the Aorus boards are good for the 9900K so depends on your budget. I wouldn't touch the Maximus Hero as the VRM is a bit of a weak point. The Maximus Code is just too expensive compared to the Ultra/Master. So for Gigabyte here are 3 good options. The cheaper Aorus Pro wifi will handle an overclocked 9900K. The Ultra and Master are two higher end options. If you want value for money then the Aorus Pro wifi is hard to beat. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/N6gzK8/gigabyte-z390-aorus-pro-wifi-atx-lga1151-motherboard-z390-aorus-pro-wifi https://pcpartpicker.com/product/n6gzK8/gigabyte-z390-aorus-ultra-atx-lga1151-motherboard-z390-aorus-ultra https://pcpartpicker.com/product/fyrmP6/gigabyte-z390-aorus-master-atx-lga1151-motherboard-z390-aorus-master
  10. The 9900K can get hot when overclocked. A good air cooler like the Dark Rock Pro 4 or Noctua D15 etc can handle it though. I would stick with a Gigabyte Z390 Aorus board though if going with the 9900K.
  11. Ok well up to you how you spend your cash. You can ignore the warning about the additional 4 pin. It will work just fine with the single 8 pin cpu connector. The Corsair RMx will be perfectly fine as well.
  12. Yes it will make a difference. Ryzen likes fast Ram. You could try using the Dram calculator to make it a bit easier. The video below gives you the lowdown on how to use it.
  13. That is a solid board. I assume you already have the cpu ?
  14. Why ? The Gigabyte board already mentioned is better.
  15. No need for an expensive X570 motherboard. You could swap out the R7 3700X for an R5 3600 and get a 2080 Super, but the 5700XT is good for 1080p/1440p. Easier to change the gpu later on so maybe stick with the 8 core 3700X. I think AMD are still doing the free games promotion.

  16. Overkill = A waste of money for the most part. If this is just a gaming pc then you are just throwing money away.
  17. The Mortar is a solid board. If you are going with an ATX case then you might as well go with the Tomahawk MAX or the B450-A PRO MAX which is usually a bit cheaper. Not as aesthetically pleasing, but it performs the same. The VRM's are more or less the same. They will all handle a 3700X with no issues, and even a stock 3900X.
  18. There is zero reason to go Intel for gaming at 4K. Even 3440 x 1440 doesn't have much of a performance gap.

  19. You don't need to worry about the additional 4 pin. If you haven't already bought the board then a Gigabyte Z390 Aorus board is better. The Asus will be fine though for an 8700K but the Gigabyte boards have better VRM's so would handle a 9900K better if you wanted that cpu later on. If you are still looking to buy a cpu/board then you should also consider Ryzen. You will get more for your money.
  20. It is UK returns based rather than having to send the card back to Europe/Asia etc. So it should be a quicker turnaround. I know Overclockers used to deal with Powercolor returns in the past, but not sure if it is still the case. It would still need to be shipped to the RMA centre though. Also if you are on Overclockers then the Gigabyte rep on there is helpful i.e They can look into the RMA for you etc if you are having any issues. If you are fine with going with Powercolor then you could save a bit more with the Dual version. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/QjpmP6/powercolor-radeon-rx-5700-xt-8-gb-video-card-axrx-5700xt-8gbd6-3dh
  21. Worth it for the UK RMA. Not sure what the process is with Powercolor. If the op is a member on OCUK there is also a Gigabyte rep on there.
  22. For an extra £10 I would go with the Gigabyte Gaming OC.

  23. Yes all you do is go into the bios and select the xmp profile for 3200 and it should run at that speed. Overclocking ram is no more dangerous than overclocking any other component. With Ryzen there is the Dram calculator tool that makes it a lot easier to overclock ram, but you don't need to worry about that if you are just running it at 3200.
  24. That supports xmp. DESCRIPTION HyperX HX432C16FB3/8 is a 1G x 64-bit (8GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) 1Rx8, memory module, based on eight 1G x 8-bit FBGA components per module. Each module kit supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profiles (Intel® XMP) 2.0. Each module has been tested to run at DDR4-3200 at a low latency timing of 16-18-18 at 1.35V. The SPDs are programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR4-2400 timing of 17-17-17 at 1.2V. Each 288-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers.
