  1. Hi from Germany too It looks like a good build yes. I have two suggestions: for the motherboard you can go with the MSI gaming edge WiFi. It's a bit cheaper and has great features. For the SSD get either the Samsung Evo 980 (to get the PCIe 4.0 connectivity) or another cheaper model maybe? Pc part picker always gives this warning with B550 motherboards. You should be fine now, manufacturers most likely updated the bios. If not, there is a bios flashback option on both the MSI board I recommended and the Asus you picked. It means you can update the bios without any components
  2. Here's a suggestion if you want to build everything new: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: Intel Core i5-10600K 4.1 GHz 6-Core Processor ($212.99 @ Newegg) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S 55 CFM CPU Cooler ($69.94 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Asus PRIME H570-PLUS ATX LGA1200 Motherboard ($139.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Crucial Ballistix 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory ($87.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Western Digital Blue 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($59.99 @ Amazon) Case: Phanteks Eclipse P360A ATX Mid Tower Case ($70.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: EVGA BQ 600 W 80+ Bronze Certi

  4. Normally the recommendation would be a gtx 1650 super new or a second hand gtx 1070, but given the market you'll have to scout for them on gumtree for a long time before you find anything decent. The only advice I can give is beware of the scams online. As much as you want a graphics card, do cancel any deal that seems even slightly shady. It is easy to get ripped off when in need of a component. I wouldn't recommend the GT1030 or anything like that, it's not worth it. Good hunting!
  5. Yeah I feel like the most significant change you can make to render faster will be to upgrade your graphics card. Prices are high but it also mean you can sell your 2070 for a good price too, so all in all you might be okay. You could change other components like the motherboard / CPU but it's more going to be a headache than anything imo
  6. For after effects you'll benefit from having 64 gigs over 32. You could have your system installed on a 2.5" SATA SSD to save some money without compromising much performance, and maybe look into a PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD for your project drive. The performance gain mightn't me huge but if you can have it for not much money... Why not?
  7. Interesting! I personally don't have a focusrite but I heard many good things that made me think I made the wrong choice. I've got a tascam us 144 but I don't think it's made anymore.

  8. Hi! Do you already have a USB audio interface? It's a really good investment for any kind of audio processing. I'd recommend something like the focusrite Scarlett 2i2, or solo depending on how many inputs you would need.
  9. I agree with what was said before. Though you could be fine if you sold your PC. The graphics card shortage also made it easier to sell your graphics card, and they're sold at a good price. For gaming, any recent middle range / high end CPU will get you by (Intel i5 and up and ryzen 5 and up). For productivity though, generally the more cores the better. So any ryzen 9 of the last generation is a great choice. Adobe premiere will benefit from a high core count. After effects not so much (yet). For After Effects it's good to have 32GB of ram, ideally even more. This software can nev
  10. No problem. I'm just a random dude on the internet so feel free to double check my suggestions

  12. Omg I didn't even realise thanks for pointing it out

  14. With that type of gear you could easily play in 4K, so I agree, it's quite overkill for 1440p. If you don't plan on doing anything else than gaming and streaming, I'd say a Ryzen 5 5600x or 7 5800x is already plenty. Also, an RTX 3070 would do fine. For the RAM, it's all very confusing and the benefit is usually just a few percents of performance so I wouldn't stress about it too much. That being said, with the last Ryzen generation, it seems what makes a difference is (ranked by how much influence it has) : 1. Having dual rank RAM sticks (that means there are memory chips on both s
