  1. using a Tier C PSU that has knocks on it with a GPU that expensive sounds like a foolish choice. Seek a better PSU, do yourself a favor. Simply because it has the cables doesn't make the unit ideal or perfect to power a very high-end modern Graphics Card.
  2. Since your work doesn't directly benefit from the PCIe 4.0 speeds, the smart money is on a great-value Gen3 SSD with a hearty TBW (650 TB) like this guy: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/JHxbt6/mushkin-pilot-e-1-tb-m2-2280-nvme-solid-state-drive-mknssdpe1tb-d8 This Mushkin SSD has become my new go-to recommendation for a sweet-spot Gen3 (great price and isn't a cheap DRAMless) ever since the SX8200 Pro became a pariah of musical chairs with parts/controller swaps.
  3. Regarding the Samsung SSD 980 (the 980 that isn't the PRO) I see that Anandtech did a full review of the SSD 980 from Samsung. Is it's placement in the list pending? Or I would presume it'd be a Tier B at best since the 1TB model performs pretty well for a DRAMless with TLC.
  4. you didn't download NiceHash from their website, you probs hit a random site full of sketchy addons and ended up installing bloatware/malware. Start by removing all that garbage and getting the tool directly from where Linus said to get it.
  5. Are you aware you keep linking offerings in the UK while the OP (original poster) did outright say they're in USA? Also laptops sacrifice a lot of performance so it's not even on-par to compare a mobile RTX 2060 to a desktop one. Will not deliver as-ideal a gaming experience in MS Flight Sim 2020.
  6. Welcome to buying a PC during shortages. Here's what your build requirements on iBuyPower look like, note that it won't ship anywhere as fast as 1-2 weeks because everyone is backed-up. Just how is is. https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Intel-Z590-Core-i7-Configurator-II/W/1401795 I did notice from the GPU options they give you can downgrade the GPU to shave a couple weeks off ship time but that would mean getting a weaker RTX 3060 and the Ti upgrade really is worth it for the mere $75 difference in price. Spending north of $1700 on a PC to settle for a 3060 seem
  7. I'd make sure the bios update took 100% and it is for sure on the newest (may be worth trying a re-flash of newest bios re-downloaded just for good measure). But then your options are to try other known good ram just to try to quick rule-out (stick from another set/kit if handy), or re-seat the CPU in socket just to be sure, remount your block then (check those pesky pins, make sure they're all super straight). If doing all those things doesn't change the debug lights one bit, you may have a bad board, they are one of the most common things to arrive dead sadly. May wanna look at
  8. Assuming the focus is gaming, you can squeeze a faster GPU in there. That said those are hard to get ahold of right now, and your CPU is the next to need upgrade after that. Your system at least have a boot SSD?
  9. The P2 uses QLC (worse endurance, worse write performance). For same money I'd grab a nice 3D TLC drive with better read/writes like this: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/2cJtt6/western-digital-blue-sn500-500-gb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-wds500g1b0c For about 36 quid more you can get a 1TB NVMe (TLC as well and not QLC like Intel 660p): https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/3ftQzy/adata-xpg-sx6000-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-asx6000np-1tt-c
  10. B450 doesn't do quad-channel. what are you on about?
  11. Oh they are out there though: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/microsoft-windows-10-pro-64-bit-windows/4379719.p?skuId=4379719 https://www.amazon.com/OEM-Windows-Home-64-Bit-1-Pack/dp/B00ZSI7Y3U https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1168591-REG/microsoft_kw9_00140_windows_home_10_64.html
  12. 3900k It's better at anything with high threads. Special ram? Not really, but if you're worried pick something off the motherboard QVL list, otherwise just find a kit of DDR4-3600 with CAS 16 and you'll be set, can just turn on XMP and be done.
  13. budget? Some of those parts (like the Samsung SSD) are on the spendy side and really aren't worth the premium just for gaming on.
  14. They are not. Here's a better site: https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2520?vs=2250
