What about thinking first and buying later?

I have an AMD CPU/motherboard currently but im going to be getting a new motherboard aswell. Only reason i havent just gotten a i9-10900k is because thats out of my price range, if possible $500 for the CPU would be a good limit

So the only thing you need are cpu, mainboard and a case , right?

so how much money are you willing to send on those components?

I already picked out the case, NZXT H510 Elite, so a cpu and mainboard at a max of $700, Although if possible a white rgb motherboard because pretty, the ASUS Prime Z490-A is what I'd get if i got tenth gen intel.

I can find no white motherboards for modern CPUs.

 

From what I can find, you'll probably be better off waiting a couple weeks to find out if the next generation of Ryzen CPUs beat out Intel in gaming, as that's literally the only category they haven't obliterated Intel in at the same price point. (CPU comparisons only, including motherboard prices reduces the cost in AMD's favor) The announcement happens on Oct 8th.

CPURyzen 5 3600 Cooler: Arctic Liquid Freezer II 120mm AIO RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 4x8GB 3600 16-16-16-36 MoboASRock X570M Pro4

Graphics Card: ASRock Reference RX 5700 XT Case: Antec P5 PSU: Rosewill Capstone 750M Monitor: MSI Optix MAG241C Case Fans: 2x Arctic P12 PWM

Storage: HP EX950 1TB NVMe, HP EX900 1TB NVMe, dual Constellation ES 2GB in RAID1

uh, ASUS Prime Z490-A is white, but yea im gonna wait. Although i dont think its possible for AMD to beat both Intel and NVIDIA in performance since they do both cpu and gpu while intel focuses on one and nvidia focuses on one. We'll see how good they are though, excited!

Looks awfully black on that PCB to me, and awfully grey on the accents.

A Ryzen 5800X benchmark has leaked already, and if it's accurate, then it will outperform an overclocked i9-10900k. So, it's possible that AMD may have no competition for their next generation of CPUs.

 

If they straight up double the performance of the 5700XT GPU and add 8GB of VRAM, they will easily take the top slot for GPU performance as well. (since that would be 3090 performance in the 3080 competitor)

 

We'll see won't we. :)
