  1. If you can get what looks like a good price i would say similar to what a Ryzen 2700X or 3600X cost around you...if you can get 9700 at or near something like that you should get it. If it's noticeably more...then wait...sell your intel combo and get a ryzen 5 newer gen instead and a board.
  2. Me neither I got a gsync monitor so amd is out of questions....but they look bloody good this generation around.
  3. I think by the time they are back in stock you might want an AMD card..
  4. MSI has a software for it called mystic light...you install it and select your options in there and save it and then you never have to worry about it again each time the PC will boot the colors will set to what you want. Good luck!
  5. have you tried removing your capture card and test with just the GPU? Those i have seen create issues in the past...might b worth a shot to clear this as a potential cause for concerns...ideally you would want to try the card in a different system just to confirm there is indeed something wrong with it.
  6. no they've been around for a while but they used to be more expensive than an similar spec TN unit so i would think many people got the TN versions. Also they are amazing so unless i would really NEED the money i won't be selling mine until something better comes out and honestly i've been using this monitor for over 3 years at this point and i bought it because i tought i was gonna do 5 years+ with it and it's gonna happen...that said i would trade it for a similar spec (IPS) ultra wide 3440x1440p any day now seeing how game support for ultra wide is getting better these days....e
  7. You mean you don't see ANY new X570 motherboards being released along with the processors?!? that is NOT how it should be tho...generally even if it's the same chipset they release a slew of new updated boards to go along.
  8. Some motherboards can be updated with a USB stick and no CPU, but they are not common and usually a feature found only on higher end boards.
  9. welll,,,you're screwed...you're on your own to find a shop to do it for you if they have an older ryzen...or you find a friend or family who has one. later on they will often re-release the same/very similar boards with same chipset but they will add a small word or a letter to the naming of the unit to identify it's from a newer updated batch. (MSI MAX for example.)
  10. just put it in and test it in some benchmarks or games...you should instantly notice an improvement over your old card.?
  11. agree...you might get a free game code or something
  12. 1060 to 1070 is a sweet bump in performance! Should run a lot better now
  13. ok i'm sorry you're right i'll go enjoy my games instead if you don't mind...you're clearly too far gone into this for me Have fun!
