  1. My initial thought was that someone must have canceled their pre-order because as soon as I did my order it was out of stock again.
  2. Pre-ordered a B550 Tomahawk today and it got pushed back by a day to 6/17. I'm unsure if this happened to all pre-orders for this particular board (I know they initially went live on Friday) or if the delay is only specific to a second allotment.
  3. I chose probably the worst possible time to upgrade my PC. My early adopter tax went to the ROG Strix B550-F at $190. I spent $240 on my mobo back in 2013 so I guess... yay?
  4. ^Current GPU is a 1070 Ti. GPU at time of original build was a GTX 780. Plan to upgrade in the fall. Thanks for the tip.
  5. It's been good and, actually, this machine never quite got used as much as I would have liked.
  6. I'm in the process of upgrading my PC to a Ryzen 5 3600. My current PC was built in 2013 and I was planning to use my power supply from that build, a Corsair HX750 80+ Gold (fully modular). There shouldn't be any issues using this with the new parts, correct? The new case will be a Meshify C.
  7. Cool deal. I was a little put off by the fact that the Aorus Elite didn't have USB-c. Not a deal-killer but a little disconcerting at that price point. On a side note, what really kicked all of this off was my wanting to move my current rig (i7-3770K) into a new case. I bought your current fave, the Meshify C! This will be my first AMD build for myself (I did build a PC for my brother in 2003 and used an Athlon XP 2600). I had always gone with Intel previously and at least one of those times I definitely should have gone AMD.
  8. I'm stuck in limbo right now with my PC upgrade-- I have a CPU (Ryzen 5 3600), RAM, and a new case but no motherboard. The impatient part of me has been scouring Microcenter, Newegg, and other sites on the off-chance a decent motherboard becomes available. The rational part of me just says to wait until the B550's are released in less than a week. That all said, I tracked down a Microcenter that has an Aorus Elite Wifi X570 in stock for $210. It would be a 4-hour drive round-trip. Is that a decent enough motherboard or should I just wait for the (cheaper) B550's? I'd like
  9. So I was able to get a used 1070 ti for $285. Hopefully it's not a dud.
  10. The closest Micro Center to me is 110 miles away so depending on what I'm getting, I like to factor in gas
  11. This is something I've always wondered about. Anyone know how they're able to sell their CPU's significantly discounted from online retailers like Amazon and Newegg?
  12. I'm normally a little cagey about buying used computer parts. I guess it's kind of relative, but what would be a good price for a used 1070 ti?
  13. I plan to do some overclocking of my CPU this weekend. 4.5 GHz is my goal. I'd like to see how much higher I can go (without delidding). Thanks for the mouse suggestions, Agent. My mouse budget is around $50-60. I think I'll give the Hyper Cloud headset a try. Anyone familiar with this monitor? It was recommended on Tom's Hardware. It was on sale for $360 but now it's gone back up https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-27-gaming-monitor-s2719dgf/apd/210-arcj/monitors-monitor-accessories
  14. Yeah--I've signed up for email notifications on Nvidia's and tracker sites. My refresh button trigger finger is ready!
  15.
