  1. I'd get a 1660 Super, nearly the same performance for much cheaper.
  2. Yes, but I wouldn't expect such an overclock. The most I've ever gotten out of overclocking ram is ~200MHz and I had to crank up the voltage, and it wasn't that stable. But you might get lucky.
  3. The 2012/early 2013 iMacs Wifi isn't supported, and Hard Drive performance takes a big hit, but otherwise they work fine with Big Sur. Here's a link to getting Big Sur on unsupported Macs https://github.com/barrykn/big-sur-micropatcher
  4. You're on the right track, I made some adjustments. PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($175.00) Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO WIFI (rev. 1.0) ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Amazon) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory ($62.99 @ Newegg) Storage: ADATA Swordfish 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($54.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($54.48 @ Newegg) Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB DUAL EVO OC Video Card ($239.99 @ New
  5. Linus Torvalds, the guy who makes Linux, said he would like there to be Linux support. But Apple isn't cooperative and he work work with companies that don't want to work with them too.
  6. Basically Apple made MacOS work with ARM, and some developers are adding support for ARM as well. If it's not supported by ARM then it gets translated.
  7. I made this list. PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor ($300.00) Motherboard: MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard ($179.99 @ Adorama) Memory: Crucial Ballistix RGB 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory ($71.99 @ Newegg) Storage: ADATA Swordfish 2 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($199.99 @ Amazon) Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB Founders Edition Video Card ($700.00) Case: Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case ($77.98 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully M
  8. AMD and Intel machines are almost identical, the only difference you'd really encounter is a different socket.
  9. There's some software you can get to divide your monitor into virtual sections, so that it is like two monitors without a bezzel.
  10. Getting a new SSD definitely made my iMac a lot snappier. If it doesn't already I'd upgrade it to at least 8GB too. And if has a quad core CPU it should be fine for that.
  11. Not really, as long as you're in that ball park you probably won't notice the difference.
  12. Most of these companies get their panels from the same place, it's really just where they get it. Gigabyte is fine, but most monitor manufacturers are fine too.
  13. Seems like Intel marketing for their not directly computing parts of the CPU https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncore
  14. Yeah I have a 2013 iMac that the drive was dying, so I used an external SSD which is way easier to set up.
