  1. When comparing Intel to AMD it is always good practice to compare only Intel chips that have a "K" in the name because all Ryzen CPUs are overclockable from the factory while with Intel you are forced to pay a premium for the same ability. Comparing a non-K Intel chip simply doesn't make any sense. Yes, I will agree, Intel is looking more and more appealing to the gaming enthusiast these days thanks to the slightly lower price. But remember when it was the exact opposite? When Intel was in the lead, their CPUs were extremely overpriced while AMD was the cheaper alternative.
  2. Ya Ive never messed with Crypto I don't really care enough about it and I make good money at work anyway so I would rather just spend my free time gaming but Ive thought about it. Perhaps one day Ill build a secondary system to try crypto out when I feel like it.
  3. Ya it is certainly the 6800-XT that poses the issue for power, not so much the CPU. Its the same story on just about any build with a standard desktop CPU. Desktop CPUs just aren't that thirsty. But the 6800-XT is just as thirsty as an RTX 3080, maybe even a bit more overclocked. There have been reports of 6800-XTs drawing 400 watts when overclocked. Ya this latest generation of GPUs drinks power like its water. But I suppose the 50% performance jump is worth dealing with the thirstiest cards we have seen in many generations. But ya man you can push the 5900X a bit fart

  6. Ya the game does have many server-related issues but believe me, some of my issues are definitely my damaged system. Having a GPU stuck in x1 PCI-E modes is definitely a serious detriment to the system. If it was in x8 or even x4 mode it wouldn't be so much of an issue but x1 just isn't enough bandwidth for smooth data transfer and so I get horrible studders and frame drops in many games, not just Star Citizen. Also, the GPU itself is physically damaged as well. But Im hoping the new motherboard will get the system back to the point of being acceptable in terms of performance. Righ
  7. Ya I saw that the Aorus Pro was strongly recommended and thats why I consider it the only real competition to the ASUS board. I would definitely get the V2 if they had a WiFi board. Its a must for me unfortunately because add-in WiFi-6 cards are just stupidly expensive and USB adapters have poor signal strength in general so... WiFi built into the board is definitely the way I want to go. Luckily the ASUS board is just as strong at overclocking as the Aorus Pro is. I love BuildZoid myself! But ya it looks like the ASUS board is the way to go.
  8. Well thanks for the input. WiFi-6 does give you a stronger connection and better speeds of course provided your router has WiFi-6 capability. My provider is my apartment lol and the router is not located in my unit but they do have WiFi-6 broadcast and I have noticed a bit of an improvement as the current damaged MoBo also supports WiFi-6 and so I have been able to test it. Its not a huge difference but gaming on WiFi already sucks as it is for lag so I would rather not step back down to WiFi-5 if at all possible. I have not heard of these issues with the Gigabyte and ASUS boards,
  9. So I think I may have just found my motherboard of choice, I made a thread in the proper area to discuss the motherboard. Let me know what you think:
  10. I believe I have found the best value-for-money motherboard that meets all of my needs, however I wanted to see what you guys thought of this board. There are a few reasons I want this board which will be explained, however first its obviously important to know what build this motherboard will be used for. Well, recently I started a thread looking for suggestions as to how to go about repairing my damaged PC. This thread can be found at the following link and will explain the situation as well as what I plan to do for the new build: Here is a link to the MotherBoard
  11. @Nets @Mister Woof Thanks for the input guys. Unfortunately Insurance refuses to cover the cost. I already tried to get them to pay me for the damages but stupidly enough, even though I made a turn on a Green Arrow which means he Absolutely must have ran a red light, the accident was counted as a "No-Fault by either party". Im not sure exactly what the police and the insurance are thinking but the good news is: My rates didn't go up at all. And of course the bad news is Im paying for the replacement PC parts out of pocket. I actually already run an X570 motherboard. The Current one
  12. Totally works just fine, I just always recommend a bigger power supply so one day when you upgrade you wont need to buy a new one. 650-750 watts and gold rating is what I always recommend. Your RAM is totally fine unless you play the extremely RAM hungry games like Star Citizen or Planetary Annihilation. But this setup works as is totally fine, nothing wrong with it at all
  13. No problem found a better deal as well be sure to check out that EVGA option ^^
  14. Just found an even better deal out there in Australia which is the EVGA 700W Gold series for $150 AUD and being shipped from Australia: https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/evga-100-gd-0700-v4-700w/p/N82E16817438196?Item=N82E16817438196&quicklink=true
  15. Ok so if you scroll down on the site you can filter by country in which the product is shipped from and I managed to find a Focus series Seasonic 650W Gold that is being shipped from Australia. Its a bit more pricey than the cheaper Core series but still much cheaper in the long run considering shipping: https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/seasonic-focus-650-gold-ssr-650fm-650w/p/N82E16817151202?Item=N82E16817151202&quicklink=true
