  1. Hello all, About a year ago I purchased and built my own new gaming PC. The main components I got were the AMD Ryzen 5 3600x, MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX, GTX 1050 TI, 16GB (3200 MHz) RAM, and LG 27GL850 (1440p, 144Hz). Now that RTX 3000s is out, I got my eye on either the 3060 or 3060 TI. Knowing that both of those cards are PCI-E 4.0 and my motherboard is 3.0, is a new motherboard worth it? Thanks for your input.
  2. Hey guys, I'm having some crackling issues with my USB Logitech G430 headset for a while. It's hard to pin point the issue but it seems to happen when the computer is loading stuff or "thinking hard" (i.e. website with significant amount of ads, initial loading of games). I only hear the crackling over Steam voice (video game sound, youtube, etc.) but also seems to be worse now that I've purchased a LG 27GN850 (144Hz). My headset is plugged into an Amazon USB hub and I tried a USB slot on my computer but it didn't get better. Anyone else having a similar issue? Any suggestion
  3. Hey everybody, I recently built my first AMD computer and now I'm looking at upgrading my monitor. I currently have a 24" LG 24MP56. Nothing special but I'd like to get a 2nd one with the follow specs. Price: $400 Max, less is preferable Size: 27" inch Resolution: 1440p Refresh Rate: 60-75Hz Panel: IPS Inputs: HDMI and DiplayPort Response Time: 5ms of less Vesa Mountable: Yes I've been looking on PCPartPicker but would like to know if anyone has a recommendation. Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the clarification. That's exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate it.
  5. Also, why the P12's for the case and not the F12's? Looks like the P12s are meant for heatsinks while the F12's are meant for the case. Is it because of the mesh filters?
  6. Thanks for the suggestions. Here's another question. I finished putting my build together a couple days ago and the CPU fan (stock Wraith Spire) is louder than I expected. Do you have any suggestions for a better quieter one? I'd budget around $50.
  7. Hey guys, I need some help choosing some case fans that make the most sense for my build. I'm building my first computer and purchased the Phanteks ECLIPSE P300 TEMPERED GLASS case with a Ryzen 5 3600x and a GTX 1050 Ti. Not a crazy build, but first time buying case fans and building. I'm looking to buy 3 120mm fans (1 on the top of the case pushing air out, & 2 on the front pulling air in). I don't need RBG, $30-70 budget (total), and something quiet but doesn't need to be completely silent. Here are my questions... 1) The case has mesh dust filters. Should I

  11. Hey everyone, First time building a PC so just looking for some advice/feedback on my new computer build. Here are the specs of my current computer and new AMD one (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/fbwRCL).

  12. Hello all, I've got a simple question... The Ryzen 5 3600 CPU doesn't have integrated graphics, so if you put it on the MSI B450 MAX Motherboard, will the on-board display ports (DVI & HDMI) even work? Thanks.
  13. Hello everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my GPU from a GTX 1050 Ti to either a GTX 1650 Super or a GTX 1660 Super. My question is about my motherboard. I don't know the exact model of my motherboard but I purchased a pre-build Dell XPS 8500 back in 2012. Do I need to purchase a new motherboard to take full advantage of the new GPU? Other Computer Specs: -Win10 Pro -i7-3770 -16GBs DDR3 1600MHz Thanks everyone!
  14. Hello World! I'm considering building my own Windows computer for the first time and had a couple questions. I'm shooting for a Mid-Upper tier gaming PC that will last for the next 5 years. I don't plan on overclocking but some typical games I play... League of Legends, Diablo 3, CS GO, GTA 5, and maybe some VR games in the future. Anywhere from $1,200 - 1,400 is my budget and here's a list of what I currently have and what I've shopped for so far. Item Current New Build
