    Z490 Gaming Edge WIFI or Z490 Vision G, they're around $200.

    There's nothing that makes much sense at $250. If you want to go higher-end than these two, there's the Z490 Unify and Strix Z490-E, but those are closer to $300.

     

    Out of the two, I'd personally get the Gaming Edge, because of its slightly stronger VRMs and better VRM heatsinks, though the Vision G has more USB ports in the rear, Intel 2.5G LAN instead of Realtek and slightly better onboard audio.

    Either should handle a 10700K no problem btw, it's not like the heatsinks or especially the VRM on the Vision G are bad or anything.

     

    55A DrMOS for the Tomahawk I think. It's the Gaming Edge and Gaming Carbon that are on smart 60As.

    I don't know why MSI did this, considering the B550 Tomahawk/Gaming Edge are both on 60s, and the Gaming Carbon is even stronger, AND AM4 CHIPS DON'T EVEN NEED THAT MUCH CURRENT...

    I think i'll probably stick to the z490 Gaming Edge since it also has WIFI and I'm looking for a long term investment, although i'm not really sure how big the difference is between it and the Tomahawk.

    all of these will easily handle a 10700k.

    I was interested in the Tomahawk since it's cheaper in my country than any others but I'm wondering if there's problems with overclocking/upgrading on it to the 11th generations if needed.

  3. Hey! I'm looking to upgrade my FX-8300 to the new I7-10700k and i'm very excited. I'd love if you guys could recommend me a good mid range z490 motherboard for the I7. I haven't done any overclocking in the past, but i'm looking to build a PC capable of doing 2k gaming so will probably overclock in the future, if necessary.

    Did you buy the mobo, CPU and GPU yet? The parts you have bought are fine, but don't spend 500€ on a brand new GTX 1080Ti. Look the card is really unique, but I'd buy an RX 5700 XT or an RTX 2070 Super or wait for next gen GPU's right around the corner. I'd get a used 1080Ti for 300-350€ if you can find a deal such as that. Because whether new or used, it's not worth to spend no more than 350€ on a GTX 1080Ti used. You should reconsider your choices.

     

    Also I'd skip the Intel build and go with a Ryzen 3700X + Asus TUF X570 mobo with an RTX 2070 Super or RX 5700 XT.

     

     

     

     

    No, i didn't make the purchase it for the kit and i will think about the ryzen 3700x+ 2070 Super, thank you very much.

    caseking.de shippes to Romania for 30 euro (up to 30 kg) and the new stuff would be about 600 euro incl. shipping 

     

    Didn't know about the site but i'll keep in mind for the future, thank you. And yeah, i can see that the prices are pretty different and sadly there are not many providers here.

    in my opinion the combo mobo cpu and gpu is okay... it isnt the US used market after all but i think you overspend a bit on the new parts... 

    I mean, these are the prices around here, so there's nothing i could've done to get them for a lower price anyway and i wasn't going to buy them second hand anyway, so..

    The combo above is not worth more than 1000 at most. You're being asked to pay 50% over what it's worth

    what would be the rest? 700$ for the CPU mobo and GPU is fine but 1450$?

    I believe he is saying MOBO GPU and CPU is $750 and the rest of his parts are another $700  so $1400 for the whole build.

     

    Also, for instance, a brand new i7 9700k + mobo costs about 740$ and a RTX 2070 Super, for me, brand new, costs 700$, so i'm totally far from achieving those. Last thoughts after this clarification?

    Okay so these are the parts that i already bought and these are my local prices rounded and converted into USD.

    NZXT H710 - 235$

    Corsair Vengeance RGB 16gb 3200mhz - 135$

    Cooler Corsair H150i - 230$

    PSU Corsair RM850 - 145$

     

    Mobo + CPU + GPU - 675$

     

    Keep in mind that a 1080 TI on my local second hand website goes for about 520$ without warranty.

    I second that. If the price is right its great hardware. I mean as long as you don't want RTX (which to be honest doesn't have any real use right now) then that's awesome. Go for it. It will hold up for quite a while. 

    I'd really like to purchase a 2k 144hz IPS monitor in the near future and don't really have more money to invest into an RTX right now, the only one that i could afford would be the 2070 Super which, from what i've understood from researching is that it's holding neck in neck with the 1080 TI. And since i'm getting a pretty good deal buying the combo that i mentioned from my friend, don't think i really need an RTX right now.

  10. Budget (including currency):  - 

    Country: Romania

    Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 1440p games mostly

    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): 

     

    Hey! I am looking to upgrade my PC. The mobo, CPU and GPU i'll be purchasing from my friend that's also upgrading his PC, so the parts still have warranty!

    I am currently curious if this build will let me play games at 2k resolution for the next couple of years.

    The parts that my potential PC will have are the following:

    Mobo: z370-e gaming

    GTX 1080 TI Strix

    I7 8086k

    Corsair Vengeance 16gb 3200mhz

    Corsair Hydro Series H150i Pro

    Corsair RM850 Gold

    NZXT H710

     

    Is it worth at all buying this as a gaming PC for 2020?
