  1. Hello, I am looking at upgrading my 1080p 144hz to a LG 27GL850-B 1440p 144hz gaming monitor, but I'm wondering if its enough of an upgrade to be worth it. I currently have a 5600x and a GTX 1070, but I'm looking at purchasing a 3070 once available. Would the RTX 3070 be capable of 1440p gaming @ 144Hz? I typically play Minecraft, Valorant, CSGO, etc and prefer frame rate over quality. Any other suggestions for a monitor would be great. My budget is under $400 USD. Thanks!
  2. I'm looking for a good air cooler for the Ryzen 5600x. I'm looking for something quiet and has enough performance for some slight overclocking. I currently have the Vengeance RGB Pro memory with about 51mm of clearance. I'm looking for something under the $80 range. Thanks!
  3. Yes, I have a 1080p 144Hz monitor. I typically play more FPS games such as CS:GO, Valorant, etc. I typically also prefer high frame rates over quality
  4. Cool, then I'll probably stick with the 3200MHz sticks then. I am planning on potentially getting the same 8 x 2 kit in the future
  5. So I recently purchased a 5600x CPU along with Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB Memory (DDR4-3200 CL16). I'm now wondering if I made a mistake with my memory choice. Is there a noticeable difference between 3200MHz and 3600MHz Memory? This is assuming they have the same CAS Latency. Should I return my memory and purchase the 3600MHz? Thanks!
  6. So I recently purchased a 5600x and Corsair 16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16 memory. I'm wondering if I should've have gone with 3600MHz instead. Will there be a noticeable difference between the two? 

  7. I looked at the Strix B550-F Wifi, but it is a bit pricey for what it is. The B550 Aorus Pro AC looks nice and has 10 USB Ports and is $170. How is the VRM/Overall quality of that board? Otherwise my next choice is going to be the MSI Gaming Carbon, but still a bit pricey for just 2 USB ports
  8. @MateyyyCool thanks. I was stuck between the MSI Gaming Edge vs the Carbon. The only major difference is 2 less USB ports. The carbon has the perfect amount of USB ports I need, but at a $40 price increase. Would it be bad to buy a separate USB hub to plug in my microphone and webcam?
  9. Budget (including currency): $1400 - $1500 USD Country: United States Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I will mostly be using this computer for games such as GTA V, Watch Dogs Legion, Minecraft, and Cyberpunk. I will also be doing some CAD modeling (as a hobby), programming and web browsing. One requirement for the motherboard is WiFi. I am undecided whether or not I should just get a WiFi adapter later or try to get it integrated on the motherboard Here is what I currently have put together. I already ordered the RAM, Case, and
  10. I am up for suggestions if you have any alternatives to these. I don't necessarily have a set budget, but I'm looking to stay in the $1300-$1500 range. Overall, I was planning on pairing a 5600x + 3070
  11. I am planning to upgrade my current rig and switch over to a either a 5600x or 5800x (depending on availability). I have my other parts picked out, but I'm still looking for a good motherboard and a cooler. I'd like to stay under $200 for the motherboard and under $100 for the cooler. I am also planning on overclocking, but nothing extreme. Here are a few requirements for the motherboard: 1. ATX 2. Wifi - I'm not sure if I'd be better off getting a mobo with integrated wifi or getting a USB adapter in the future. Only reason I need this is for college 3. Ability to
  12. Thanks for the help. I'll let him know
  13. When would be the best time to build? I haven't followed much on the Ryzen 4000/B550 and Nvidia Ampere.
  14. Yeah that's kinda what I was thinking also. He wanted to build it now, but I'll see what he thinks.
  15. Budget (including currency): $1400 Country: United States Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Fortnite, Call of Duty, Minecraft, etc. Other details: Putting a list together for a friend. The computer will just be used for general gaming/some slight productivity work (maybe some CAD) . PC Only -- No peripherals
