    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    We were also using 100 mhz CPUs and there was no such thing as a GPU, it was a graphics card. Likely a Monster Voodoo....that probably had a power draw of like 3 watts

    Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB PCIe NVMe 3.0 $129.99 Free US shipping at NewEgg

    Thanks, I'll give em a call. It's worth the $15 shot I spose. And like you, my next purchase may very well be a decade from now, cause that's how long I keep my rigs for haha.

    Which AsRock B660m Steel Legend drivers?

    Yeah, I literally only updated the GPU driver. However, device manager is showing both secondary PCI Slots as not working. Which is surprising...

    Which AsRock B660m Steel Legend drivers?

    Upon further review, I don't think I'll be installing any of these drivers manually. I'm just gonna let Win11 do its thing....

    Which AsRock B660m Steel Legend drivers?

    Think I answered my own question after a bit of research. Seems like the only drivers I actually need off this list are the Realtek audio and the two LAN drivers.

    Which AsRock B660m Steel Legend drivers?

    I've never owned an AsRock product before, but I have a B660M Steel Legend arriving today for a new rig I'm building (first one in over a decade, /gasp). So I figured I'd download all the drivers I'm going to be installing, but I find their descriptions on the download/support page to be quite...

    Cooler Master HAF 922 case with AORUS Radeon RX 6800 XT

    I'm about to do exactly the same mods as you've done, in my 932. I just can't justify spending $100 on a new case for my upgrade, when all I really need it for is the front USB 3.2 ports... Kudos to you for re-using. I'm gonna do the same. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding a 5.25" USB...

    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    Yah, I still don't think I'm going to splurge on the 1000W. Paying almost double the cost for 150W seems silly to me. I'm pretty confident that an 850W will suffice just fine, even with transients.

    Black Friday Monitors?

    I'm in the market for a 28-32" 4K monitor and was just curious if it would be wise to wait until Black Friday season to see if any of the monitors I'm eyeballing will get a discount. Are there particular brands that tend to run BF/CM sales? I'm currently looking at specific models of GIgabyte...

    Here is a link to the two PSU's I'm debating between. https://pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/KqbTwP,bRXJ7P/ I'm having trouble justifying the $50 difference for 1000W....

    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    Because you still think a good 850W isn't enough to run the 6900XT? Just want to clarify for when we make an official bet my friend ;)

    Cooler Master HAF 922 case with AORUS Radeon RX 6800 XT

    I'm about to do exactly this to mod my 11 year old HAF 932 to fit my new 6900XT (333mm). Can you link me to the front panel dock you're referring to? I'd love to ass something like this to mine as well.

    Cooler Master HAF 922 case with AORUS Radeon RX 6800 XT

    Yup, I'm still using my HAF 932 from 11 years ago. Such a great air cooled case right out of the box

    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    Thanks, that's pretty much how I was taking the "recommended Watts" too. It's like the expiration date on your milk. I think I'm going to pick a quality 850W off this list: https://cultists.network/140/psu-tier-list/

    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    I've seen multiple completed builds on PCPP, of people running 750/850W PSU's with similar CPU's and a 6900XT, so I really don't think 1000W is needed. I will compare pricing to see if I think the extra cost of a 1000W is worth it.

    That's a lot of wasted cash if I only need a 750W or so...

    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    Ok, so here is my new rig: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/NorseKnight/saved/VprLcf Although, I think I might have to return the 650W PSU and get something with more juice.....the PCPP build says the system will draw 511W, but the ASRock website recommends 900 for the GPU itself, lol. Could...

    ASRock RX 6900 XT $690

    I'm picking up this exact card used off of FB marketplace tomorrow for $475. You really can't turn the stupid fan light off? Cause I strongly dislike RGB...I don't want lights in my case.

    I've been eyeballing the M32Q, Its another $110 or so, but it is an IPS panel instead of the curved VA panel.

    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    That's what I do, an extra 100 W is plenty. I bought a 650 for this build and dude is telling me to buy a 1000 watt PSU. Madness.

    Upgrade this Gaming rig, or gut it and rebuild?

    I'm sorry but I find your advice to be terrible. Paying up for a 1000+ watt PSU when my system will draw maybe 550 at any given time is just a flat waste of money. So is buying a "better" CPU because it has more cores. Cores are for multi-threading. I'm not using my PC for compiling code, or...

    EVGA Keyboard and Mouse for $9.23 each

    Thanks for the heads up. At the price, I couldn't refuse. Maybe I'll use it for my laptop, or maybe the wife will want it.

    EVGA Keyboard and Mouse for $9.23 each

    Yeah I'm still trying to add the keyboard to my cart and it won't let me. Only have the option to "Auto-Notify". I have the mouse in cart, just need the keyboard so I can mash the checkout button... *EDIT* Available again at 9:10 am EST

    EVGA Keyboard and Mouse for $9.23 each

    Looks like the mouse is out of stock. I'll be grabbing the keyboard though, as all the letters and shit on my old logitech G15 are all worn away now lol. That keyboard is like 10+ years old.

    Damn I'm too slow, it's dead. Was gonna order one for my new rig I'm building this fall. Mostly waiting for black friday/cyber monday deals. But I'll grab parts between now and then if it's a good deal.
