  1. Just did a pre-order for the next gen Ryzen. Never done this before. I usually wait till after all the reviews come out. But with Ryzen track record lately I went ahead and took a risk! Now let's see if I actually get one!
  2. So, I'm building a computer, the question should be simple but most likely will be otherwise. Has anyone seen the Radeon 6800/6900 xt or none xt physical size? Really doesn't matter , which one. This is probably a horrible idea but I'm gonna assume they are going to be roughly the same size? My reason? I bought this case. Looks great IMO. I checked and researched and checked again. I'm not exactly sure how I missed this. But, when overlooking the stats. I found one concern after I purchased. GPU max size is 320 mm I'm trying to find pictures info anything that'll g
  3. Budget (including currency): dollar Country: usa Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: games Other details Man, I'm about to click buy on a build I'm working on and my plan was to buy everything else now. Then wait for the new Ryzen chips and pull the trigger on the CPU. But as I'm selecting my stuff, I see the 3800x on sale for 338.00 I think well pretty dammed close! Anyway is saving 120 some odd dollars worth a 20% ipc increase. Or just wait or go ahead and buy the chip on sale. Is there anything I'm not thinking about. Anything I'm missing? Or dangit g
  4. The ATX not mAtx, also the cpu I'd like to use is to be determined. But most likely it'll be the Ryzen 5800x. If I can get one. But, even If I can't it'll be in the same price/tier. But, I've found allot of info. And I'm gonna go with the Gigabyte Aurous Pro B550. Not the micro. After going through review after review. Comparison after comparison. I liked the options you get with the Pro. And the price isn't outrageous. Coming in at about 159.00, 20 less than the TOMAHAWK. Thanks though for the consideration, I just need to learn how to slow down and research alittle better.
  5. BIOSTAR Racing B550GTQ AMD AM4/B550/microATX. Can't find much info on this board. Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. Looking for VRM data. Or someone that can tell me if I should buy or pass. My other options are the b550 MSI TOMAHAWK, ASUS TUFF, or the Gigabyte Elite or Pro. The only reason I'm even considering this option is because I found the board for 139.00. If it's as good as the rest I could save a few bucks on the build. I have a strick budget I have to adhere to. I'm really leaning towards the Gigabyte Aurous Pro. Because the TOMAHAWK at it's price woul
  6. Anybody think a Ryzen 3900x, would pair good with msi x570 tomahawk? Maybe with a light overclock? Or don't even chance it and go with a x570 strix. I'm thinking I could save some money in this area then apply the savings to other components. Or what's everyone's opinion? Doesn't have to be a Asus board just my preference. I did get to see the motherboard list. It was a Tier S.
  7. I was really considering this route. But I'm afraid it'll be a cash grab so to speak. And maybe I will maybe I won't get one kinda thing. I figured if I went x570, and then upgrade the chip only once they level out and have stock. Also, I figure that'll give time for the 11th gens to arrive and if they can give Ryzen a run for there money. Prices will go down.
  8. I really haven't decided yet. I assume adobe pro. Let me explain. I'm starting a business. Along with that business I also want to make videos. Not movie quality, but desent enough. A family member is doing allot to help me start this endeavor. Well, as a present, or help. She decided hire me to build a computer, then turn around and give it to me, kinda as a kick start. My business will be building custom gaming/streaming computers to order. But I also want to make videos here and there of my builds. And I really needed something to edit on. That didn't take forever to compile. Any suggestion
  9. I don't do black friday, and it's not my money I'm spending. I'd be more willing to do cyber Monday. But standing in lines for the best of the best deals. Fighting people just to get into a door and after all that. I might not get it. I'm planning this out. I don't want to deal with what if. Will I get it won't I. But thanks anyway
  10. Not yet I'm sorry. I'm gonna do that tonight. I got stuck out of town and totally forgot about it.
  11. Budget (including currency): Don't know for sure, I'm thinking 1750.00 to 2500.00$$ US Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Some gaming, video editing mainly Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): All brand new. 100% Ok with that. I'm wanting to build the best editing machine, with a secondary gaming in mind. Can I achieved this with the budget I set? My ideas for parts please ad
  12. Lian Li 011D-XL bottom fan/radiator frame clips. It appears the screw into the removable fan or radiator cage. Then snap into those holes punched into the inside of the case.
  13. I can only comment on the PSU I've put into my builds. I've tried quite a few. Lately though I've been using Apex Gaming 750w 80 gold cert. The first one I bought ran 87.00 on sale of course. And the second one I bought (because the first one had been great for me) but at the time paid full price at 99.00. They also have a 550w. Going a little over kill IMO can't hurt and gives you room to expand and upgrade. And at that price for a gold cert wasn't bad. But I'm no expert on PSU. But yes 600w should be more than enough for your provided specs. If you ever decided to upgrade to a Nv
  14. Dang Thanks! Awesome feedback. Got allot to look over here. Really man thanks!
