    these 2 are sadly not compatible. 

     

    edit: also

    this isnt really a great choice for what you are intending it to do. its singlerail, which at these high wattages isnt ideal. 

     

    edit2:

    thats not really a great SSD for the money while it also doesnt really offer anything that cheaper drives can also offer. 

     

    Do you have any suggestions for better SSD / Power supply for what I'm doing? 

  2. Budget (including currency): Any

    Hi folks, I need help with my selection of a motherboard. This is my first build, and I have already acquired all the other components except for the motherboard itself. 

     

    But it seems like every high-end motherboard I look at has few reviews and, being a first-time builder, it's a little scary. Like I said, this is the final component I need to buy, and this board seems to have everything I need. I should also note that wifi and bluetooth are important features for me.

    Went with "just" a 2070 Super since it sounded like gaming's more of an afterthought.

    With this budget you could probably fit a Threadripper in there, just wasn't sure whether you needed that much multi-threaded power. If you do though, you'd probably be looking at a 3960X and a $500ish TRX40 board, like a Gigabyte Aorus Maste for example. You'll also be looking at bumping up the power supply if you go that route.

    Thanks for the tips! I'll definitely start digging into this. 

  4. Budget (including currency): $3500 USD

    Country: USA

    Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I am a video editor and audio producer for a living. I need a rig that can easily handle editing 2k video footage at minimum, and that won't start chugging on me when I'm working with a lot of layers. I heavily use Adobe Premiere and Adobe Audition for work. I will also be gaming on this rig, and it would be great to be able to play the latest games at great performance & quality. 

    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): Lots of hard drive space is important, and I'd really like to run a high-capacity SSD as the boot drive. I'm going to be buying soon - within the next week or two ideally. I plan to run three monitors. 

     

    This will be my first-ever build, so I'm a little nervous. I've been watching LTT for a while now and I feel like this is my best path forward for my work. Thanks in advance!
