I would get the 7800x, personally. AVX 512 and quad channel memory are great to haves for encoding. It also has a far better upgrade path, should you really need it.


Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

That specific board wrecks 90% of MSI's boards.  MSI is generally only good on the extreme high end mobos

Have in the past, though thats not why I recommend against them.  @dave_k and some other knowledgeable folks alerted me to the importance of VRMs adn MSI trends towards the terrible in this arena.
