I shop newegg with hoverhound and usually find better prices on amazon. The search results on newegg are better so look there and use hoverhound for the better prices.
I've been using Newegg since they started doing business, what was that like twenty years ago. I've always had really good service with them, but yeah they really went downhill after they sold out a few years ago. They were such a great vendor too. I still use them and haven't had a problem, but they're a shell of what they used to be, making the name fairly appropriate. Amazon sucks, always has. Micro center has a fraction of the stock and then there's eBay which is a whole suck in of itself. The state of vendors is what makes me want to cry. I think it's just the entropy of the universe at fault.Ive never had an issue with newegg either and Ive been buying from them since they opened.
Like night and day. Don't go Threadripper unless you are a graphic artist doing rendering or engineer doing CAD work or working with some other multi-core intensive productivity stuff.whats better x570 or trx40 and whats the diff?
Or, if PCIe 4 doesn't matter to you, as-of yesterday AMD committed to supporting 400-series chipsets for Zen 3. Although they havn't told us the details, The most logical path for that would be to stop supporting Zen 1 and Zen+, and go with Zen 2/3.The B550 boards will be out soon and you can probably save some cash by using one of those boards. That's what I plan on doing. I'm only going to run an 8 core, so it should be more than sufficient for me.
B550 will have PCI-E 4.Or, if PCIe 4 doesn't matter to you, as-of yesterday AMD committed to supporting 400-series chipsets for Zen 3. Although they havn't told us the details, The most logical path for that would be to stop supporting Zen 1 and Zen+, and go with Zen 2/3.
So it should be capable of supporting whatever you buy now, plus whatever you buy in the future.
Well yes, but doesn't officially release for a month.B550 will have PCI-E 4.
Hopefully, I don't have to worrk about the sleep bug. I either lock my 'puter or shut it down. Most of the time it is just on. Since I have an SSD, my machine boots pretty quick and I do a full shutdown every night and then boot it up in the morning. That usually keeps thing running well on my system.I actually have an Aorus x570 Elite and it's been working great for a few months now. My only complaint is with the quality of the BIOS, some weirdness, but evidently BIOS isn't great for any these x570 boards.
Watch out for the sleep bug where it fails to boot with that particular board. If it ever does that to you, just pull the CMOS battery for a few moments and you can get it back. Hopefully you won't see it, not everyone does. First boot after a BIOS reset takes extra time so don't worry if it doesn't come up right away for first power-on, give it like thirty seconds. Also avoid the Gigabyte utility software, it's pretty bad and can cause system crashes. If you use RGB you're kind of stuck with it, but don't let it run in the background. Use HWInfo64 for sensors.
