  1. 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
  2. B450 doesn't do quad-channel. what are you on about?
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. They are not. Here's a better site: https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2520?vs=2250
  7. You should read the posts about "how much PSU is enough" so you can dispel your false beliefs in PSU calculators (hint, they're bad). The stated high PSU requirement by companies that sell graphics cards are to insulate themselves against crap PSU that are falsely rated for higher numbers (all sticker, no quality). Any quality PSU that is recommended can easily run a 580 and could be as low as 450W and still be completely fine and not "maxed out". -if you want more confirmation, check out the already hashed-out discussing in the PSU tier list thread.
  8. Well that's pretty neat. I thought MSI was the only one who released an updated B450 board that takes 3rd Gen natively w/o a non-stock bios update. Any idea what caused them to update the B450 line with this little exception?
  9. I would think so. I don't know of keys that care at all about what install media you use. I presume the products you are comparing are retail keys anyway, so you don't have OEM limitations anyway. Could even make your own USB and install with that instead thanks to windows media creation tool and have it be the most up to date Windows 10 (the dvd will be out of date most likely). The key is really the important bit.

  11. They have to exist locally on your computer before they sync to Onedrive. You can remove the sync with your desktop and everything, but in order for files to auto-upload to onedrive, you need a designated folder first on your pc (OneDrive isn't just a network folder you can push source files to, it wants the real folder first as it doesn't give you just a remote-only folder access).
  12. Just to let you know these don't link to the Revolution X't series. I have this for the X't II it would seem (not sure how to spot the original X't) - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/t2mxFT/enermax-revolution-xt-650-w-80-gold-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-erx650awt
  13. Since it's just a 580, unless you think you'll be switching to an RTX 2080 and a 3950x overclocked this is more than enough PSU for your needs, and the price is more friendly than the 650W units you were listing: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vHhmP6/evga-gd-2019-500-w-80-gold-certified-atx-power-supply-100-gd-0500-v1 If you're ok paying $14 just to get semi-modular, then this is also a good pick: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/t2mxFT/enermax-revolution-xt-650-w-80-gold-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-erx650awt
  14. yeah it's called a 100-foot ethernet cable lol. What are you trying to accomplish? You can run long cables, but you do not want to think about ways to wirelessly bridge your modem and router, that's a recipe for madness.
  15. By moca adapter do you mean Cable modem? The answer is yes. You'd hook up your ISP-compatible modem, and could just plug your PC into that or a router depending.
  16. PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor ($322.99 @ SuperBiiz) Motherboard: MSI B450-A PRO MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard ($99.99 @ B&H) Memory: G.Skill Aegis 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($59.99 @ Newegg) Total: $482.97 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-01-03 21:46 EST-0500 Can just squeeze near-budget an 8-Core upgrade to a workstation powerhouse. Excel and Access cannot want for more threads, as they'll have 16 to contend with. The motherboard is a MAX series, which means it'll work jus
  17. Something doesn't compute here bud. OP literally said in their opening post "Don't really wanna spend 300" ... and then you go on to talk about a $300 motherboard.
  18. Or if you want the cheapest board with good VRM, ASUS Prime X570-P
  19. A used GTX 1060/1070 if the deal is there. Otherwise an RX 590/580/570 would be within budget. Depends what games the GTX 670 doesn't run, it's a not bad card. May make sense to stick with it for a bit, see how the CPU upgrade helps and focus on the SSD upgrade first.
  20. What site? That makes the biggest difference on whether they honor price mistakes. Amazon is known to honor it, but others off less repute won't
  21. That's too much for an EVGA GQ. This is a much better PSU for the money: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Y3bCmG/phanteks-amp-550-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ph-p550g_us01
  22. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jBZzK8/gskill-ripjaws-v-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c16d-16gvkc Oh look, 600 Mhz faster, CL16, and it's on 2 dimms properly for a dual-channel kit.
  23. You didn't set it to public, it just tells me that's a private list. It'd be easier if you just hit the markup button at the top of PCPartpicker (when you're editing it) that shows "BB" and copy and paste that here instead.
