I also found out a bit more info, tell me what you think. For my cooler I have the CORSAIR - iCUE H100i ELITE, for my power supply I have the EVGA 1000 G+. and my current motherboard is rog strix b560-A 

You should be fine with that cooler.

Budget (including currency): none

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mainly gaming (Multiple programs open while gaming, such as a web, spotify, discord. 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

 

Hey everyone again! 

Currently have a ROG 4090, 10850k, 32GB DDR4 Corsair ram 3200.

I made a recent post about what I should do about upgrading and I think I've done enough research and have come to the conclusion that the 7800X3D sounds like its the current best for gaming and price. As I noticed a very slim differences in performance between that and the 14900k. I usually like to buy the best of everything when I do it (Hence the 4090 I got) but I'm also not trying to fork over another $200 for a small fps difference ill never notice. So with that being said, couple questions. Is the 7800X3D that much better in performance/price then the 7950? I've seen people say the 7950 is only better when it comes to 3D models and not gaming. Which would make sense. But just wanting to verify. Also wanna see peoples opinion on the 7800 vs 14900 vs 7950. As I can get the 7800 on amazon for $330 right now. 

 

Once I figure out what processor I'm gonna go with (Probably 7800 unless someone convinces me otherwise) I really need help with motherboard recommendations. I'm absolutely terrible when it comes to motherboards and know absolutely 0 about them. If you can recommend one intel and one amd. that'll be great! (No budget but don't wanna go crazy) 

 

Last (I think) I'm also gonna want new ram. I know a lot of people say 32GB is enough, for me I feel like 64 would be perfect. I currently have the corsair 32gb DDR4 and I've loved it. I was just gonna jump and buy the corsair DDR5 64GB but would love to hear other peoples recommendations. 

 

As far as looks goes, I have a white case, RGB fans, and a black 4090. Rest is a white look. So I would prefer to stick to a white/RGB look. I'm honestly not sure what CPU cooler I currently have, as I didn't build this PC. But its seemed to be working fine. I believe its also corsair. 

 

EDIT: Im also gonna be gaming in 2k-4k. Currently gaming at 2k. But ive been looking at getting a 4k monitor. 

 

 Hoping to hear from some of the experts. Thanks everyone again!

Hey thanks for the reply! In your personal opinion, you going with amd? Just curious. Also any reason to go with the g.skill over the Corsair other then price? I did have g.skill before on an old build with 0 issues. Also for the Amd any other board you’d recommend other then Msi? Sounds weird, but I hate the msi logo 🤣 thanks man! Appreciate it!

Most people would probably go with AMD, if it's only for gaming. As everything as now flip, if you want a better multitasker or for productivity, the better options are intel 13th/14th gen. While for gaming a 7800x3d is just about equal to an 7950x3d. However, there's still one more factor you need to consider, which is resolution. As you are getting the "best." I'm pretty sure you are either using at least a 1440p monitor. Now if you are using 4k, which is what I'm guessing. Chances are, you might not get much fps improvement, as the higher resolutions are gpu intensive. For motherboards, Gigabytes are also decent and even the high end Asrock boards are now better than the previous generations.

I’m currently gaming at 1440p but do plan on going to 4k. Which is why I’m lucky I have the 4090 already lol. Definitely sounds like 7800 then. I mainly game. If not just browsing the web and using discord for the most part…

You should be fine with that cooler.
