  1. I'm honestly not surprised, but I'm disappointed he's considering it seriously. The things I'd rather see Linus do: Donate it to charity. Pay for his children's college. Buy Luke, who is by and large a huge reason for the success of early LTT and a reason Linus is where he is today, a nice home or give him a fat chunk of change. I feel like he's always gotten the short end of the stick for all his work because he's so nice despite the endless sleepless nights he put in for most of the early years. Use it to pay for builds for LTT fans. Start a new
  2. Well I've been living in NYC for over 8 years now, and I've had to move every year. I'd like something easier to bring around when that time comes, I'd also like to (more importantly) be able to bring my gaming pc with me to a friends, my s/o's, or my familys place, and plug it in and set it up while plugging in two controllers for steam big picture mode. I've always been a competitive gamer, but I'm starting to really enjoy just casual gaming with friends / family. Life is a lot less stressful and more fun this way.
  3. Budget (including currency): $1000 USD, flexibility is $100. Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming, potentially low level modeling in CAD. 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): I'm using a 1920x1080 144hz monitor, I have the EVGA GTX980 already from an old build and don't plan on upgrading it.

  4. Post two near price equivalent builds, have people decide which one they would pick and state why. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/s3rTy4 or https://pcpartpicker.com/list/DDtjF8 Personally, I built the second setup and I'm very happy with it. The drawbacks: I only have a stock cooler, but it's actually performing insanely well? Very surprised. Benefits? It felt like I had a lot more options with the motherboards, and this made me feel like they would have a lot more around if I needed replacements down the road. I think I overspent on t
  5. Wheres the spreadsheet? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smj5dh97n32wJqm5dkdDcQt8ID7vH52-lKzaaXUUQx8/edit#gid=741394377
  6. Not sure about tech but I have a broken LGA 1150 motherboard you're welcome to if you take care of the shipping.
  7. These are the only four boards I've been able to find that are: ITX Support the 5600X and are sold at B&H https://pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/NQ7p99,NqsnTW,rhrYcf,9pn8TW/ Am I misunderstanding some compatability issues? I Dont see why this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1422991-REG/msi_b450i_gaming_plus_ac.html and similar boards wouldn't work?
  8. Is there a reason there's no information on these boards? https://pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/NQ7p99,NqsnTW,rhrYcf,9pn8TW/
  9. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for the tips.
  10. Thank you. I'm glad to know this is the case.
  11. I see, thank you for chiming in. I'd be curious to see if anyone here has experience updating the BIOS without using a CPU that already works on the motherboard.
  12. I don't see how Strix is relevant here? I linked the board of consideration above.
  13. Why does it say the B550 will need a Bios update for a 5600X?

  14. I'm not well read up on motherboard lineups at the moment and got confused. Right now I'm trying to do research on the B550 vs X570 offerings and prices to see if there's some features here I might like that would incentivize switching to AMD.
  15. What difficulties do you find yourself running into with AMD processors?
