  1. Yeah I was just reading that they are pretty much the same, I can find the 10850k for about $50 cheaper
  2. Thank you for your insight, it helps a lot. I think you have answered a couple of my questions this week. I will tweak the build to get more ram into it.
  3. I dont think you should pay that for an RX 550. I have a 1050 TI Id sell you for $200 and Id still be screwing you some what.
  4. Yeah sorry I didnt read lol There is a PSU Tier list: And a Motherboard Tier list. The MSI B550-A Pro is well regarded though. Gamers Nexus ranked it as their best all around B550 board. You can get cheaper coolers, but the NH-D15 is great and will last. Dont know if the 5800x comes with the stock cooler but he AMD stock cooler is good if you want to save a little. I have cooled a Ryzen 7 1700x with one for years. Fractal cases are generally good and just depends on what you can get in your area, but the meshify certainly wont harm your PC.
  5. Do you have a GPU already? AMD doesnt have IGPUs
  6. Budget (including currency): Id like to stay under $2400 for new parts, Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Graphic Design, GAN Images, CS:GO Other details Some of the parts are being reused (RAM, PSU, NH-D15, Case, SATA Drives) I will be buying CPU, GPU, and Motherboard PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mx8Hgt CPU: Intel Core i9-10900K 3.7 GHz 10-Core Processor ($464.49 @ B&H) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($99.95 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Gigabyte Z590 AORUS ELITE ATX LGA1200 Motherboar
  7. Yeah they do seem similar. Ive been typing on it for a bit and am impressed. I got it to replace a broken Rantopad that i had for 4 year and loved but the prices on those went from $40 to $90.
  8. https://www.amazon.com/Pulsar-Gaming-Gears-Swappable-Mechanical/dp/B08KDG6ZBR/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=pulsar%2Bkeyboard&qid=1620878965&sr=8-3&th=1
  9. Has anyone used Pulsar Keyboards before? Curious about how they hold up. I just picked one up for $45 and am pretty impressed. The top plate is aluminum, the switches are hot swappable, and it has ARGB. All the writing on the key caps kinda sucks but I can deal with it and the braided cable feels cheap but again I can deal with that.
  10. The motherboard is irrelevant to me. I will be getting a new one as my current one is a B350 and at this point needs to be updated just as much as my CPU and GPU to take full advantage of the new components. That is why the intel is also on the table, otherwise I would only be looking at AMD for socket longevity but also see:
  11. This is true, would probably eat my current Ryzen 7 1700 for a snack. Availability & price, I can get the best deal on the 3 CPUs I have listed. I can only get the 5900x significantly above MSRP
  12. Pretty abysmally, gaming is fine and everyday tasks are fine, but my render times are about 1/2 - 3/4 of a day and I farm out all of my current GAN training, so my experience with their demands on a CPU are limited (although the GPU is the major player here). Really I just need to decide if 30% more performance is worth about $200 between the AMDs or whether the advantage Intel has with some data libraries are worth the hit in CPU performance. I'm leaning 3950x but my consoomer brain keeps telling me to yolo it and go 5950x for "future proofing and flexing on the internet".
  13. Yeah I guess if I’m going to spend some money, might as well go full send. Plus I tend to use my components for years.
  14. Just looking for some advice, opinions, knowledge/help making a decision. I am building a new PC. Right now it will have a RTX 3090 with either 32gb or possibly 64gb of ram. I can not decide between a i9-10900k, Ryzen 9 3950x, or a Ryzen 5950x for the CPU. It will be used for daily use, 3D modeling, some GAN training, and the occasional game (CS:GO). Some perspective: I am upgrading from a system that has a Ryzen 7 1700, 32gb of ram, and a 1050 Ti. So pretty much any option will be an extreme improvement. Is the 5950x worth the extra $$$? Ove
  15. I have a Harbor Freight set that has been great for me. Or you could get the one that Strange Parts bought for his phone market friend, it seems nice.
