    In a month or two things will normalize. Just hold off until then.

    New Gaming/Streaming Build

    Yeah but these Ryzen chips have higher ipc right? Does PBO give near max overclock? I kind of like this set and forget overclock feature. I think I might get some 4000mhz ram and underclock to 3600 until Zen 3. Also rumors of 3900XT might be true so probably smart to wait for that.

    First build where budget isn’t everything.

    Why do you have 21 fans? Those are triple packs you have added. Are you building an airplane? :p Not sure why you wouldn't want a gold rated psu but whatevs. I'm doing a similar build so have fun with it.

    New Gaming/Streaming Build

    Yes I plan on OC'ing and i like to keep my computer as long as I can with gpu and cpu drop in upgrades rather than build a whole new system that's why I want higher end parts. I rather spend a few hundred extra than build a whole new system in a couple years so that's my reasoning for the case...

    New Gaming/Streaming Build

    I'm coming from my rig in my sig which has been going strong for almost 5 years now and I've got a upgrade itch. My build: Any changes I should make? I'm carrying over my 1080Ti until the 3080Ti comes out. I am planning on upgrading to Zen 3...

    New gaming pc which one?

    Why would you go z390 and cut off any future upgrade path? Anyway I would pick PC 2 because AMD has newer tech and Zen 3 is around the corner for possible upgrade.

    Ryzen 3900XT, 3800XT, and 3600XT allegedly to be announced by June 16th

    I'm new to AMD but doing a new build for it soon. To overclock a 3900XT it supposedly supports Infinity Fabric Speed (FLCK) of 2000mhz does that mean I need to get ddr4-4000 to get the most out of the cpu? Will Zen 3 support a even higher FLCK? I've been reading this for reference: Corsair OC Guide

    X570 advise please.

    Why would anyone go B550 over x570? I don't really understand the point of those boards.

    Intel 10th Gen Mobo Recommendation

    Hi I'm building a new system soon and looking at these two boards: Asus ROG Strix Z490-A Asus ROG Maximus XII Hero Other than the fancier built in audio(which I won't use) and other fancy things am I missing out on much going with the Strix board? I like it because I'm going with a black/white...

    Build Now or Wait?

    Well my computer started restarting randomly while gaming so that's a problem.. Getting DistributedCOM warnings in event viewer but not sure what the problem is. What if I kept my 1080ti and upgraded to the 3080ti this summer. Are the new intel cpu's going to be a big improvement still being on...

    What 1080 Ti AIB card are you getting and why?

    Doubt Asus has fixed this as they made the heatsink bigger with the 1080Ti. I've got a Aorus 1080Ti Xtreme being delivered tomorrow will be interesting to see how it sags because its a big 3 fan card as well. Regardless I'm pretty excited to get it installed. I've always gone with EVGA in the...

    980 Ti

    Very happy with my new computer running a EVGA 980Ti Hybrid @ 1500/8000Mhz 74.6% ASIC with stock volts and I know I can push it further. It stays at 50C load whether I put it on auto fan or 60% speed.

    EVGA GTX 980 - $236.54 for Price Matching ONLY

    Lol at all the people calling price matching a scam. It's the stores responsibility to either accept or reject and price match and keep their employees informed. The policy was created to keep the stores competitive. Also how is arbitrage shady? Many people make a living doing it..

    Considering upgrading my GTX 780 Ti....

    That wouldn't make sense, the 970 is weaker than the 780Ti. Go 970 SLI or wait for 980Ti.

    Sennheiser G4ME Zero headset $174.99

    I recently bought the HD350's and personally found the clamp force to be to strong. Returned them and went with the astro a40's instead and I'm happy with the extra comfort for the price.

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    Don't get me wrong I still look for best bang for the buck. You might say the 970 is just that but I think it's worth spending a little more on the GPU. Most games are GPU dependent, you need to give me a better example than a poorly optimized game from a company that's almost going bankrupt.
