Like Gunderman456 I decided to make a 3xxxX build.
The first component I am using is a 3800X CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 8-Core, 16-Thread Unlocked Processor with Wraith Prism LED Cooler. I got this for 329 USD from Amazon.com, comes with 2 free games (The Outer Worlds, and Borderlands 3). So $80 for each game, regardless of how ****ty Borderlands 3 is... That's basically 169 USD for the CPU. Not that I subscribe to purchasing games near launch at full price, but, whatever... It was a nice addition to test the complete rig, and I'm so excited to finally play a non-political game in The Outer Worlds
The second component is an Asus Prime X570-P Ryzen 3 AM4 with PCIe Gen4, Dual M.2 HDMI, SATA 6GB/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 ATX Motherboard, I got it for 149 USD from Amazon.com
There was a 'HOT' deal
for a 3800X, MSI MPG mobo, and Samsung EVO 970 500GB SSD, all for 515USD I mulled over it, but looking at the temps, and taking Gunderman456's advice, I chose not to buy it. Probably, one of the worst clusterbucks this decade. This deal was so hot, it would have caught fire, literally.
I watched this :
The dudebag monitored the temp ratings on the mobo. The Asus Prime X570-P temperature ratings were on par with the ASROCK Taichi premium priced mobo Japan is raving about right now. I say this because there's less than a 2% margin when it comes to temperatures differences, basically that 1 degree of difference is well within user/rig compatibility fault, etc...
Of course, the mobo itself is having compatibility issues with some components, but Asus is working on it right now. And once those are ironed-out with bios updates, it should be a bare, but amazing frame.
There is some dissonance among those who purchased the mobo knowing full-well it didn't have wifi or bluetooth chipsets, but decided to complain, regardless. That brings me to another point, the temperature discrepancies between the Asus Tuf and Prime x570-P are obviously due to the presence of wifi, and bluetooth pcbs heating up the mobo.
If you want the internal 'luxuries' of WIFI, and Bluetooth, you gotta pay the price financially, and temperature-wise. Useless for me, though. Everyone knows Cat8 is the way to go!
In terms of GFX I have a brand new non-reference GTX 1070 Ti that has been sitting in its box since launch day.
I haven't built a rig in a while, so this should be an interesting endeavour.
I have a few towers laying around from incomplete builds, so I will probably use one.
I spend most of my free time gaming at the arcade, or video editing, I don't usually play console games, or PC games that much. But, I'm looking to change that in the future, if you could give me some good game recommendations, that would be cool.
In terms of ram, anything that is 3200mhz, and cheap with good customer satisfaction will do. I also have an idea for the SSD, but I don't want to give out any names before it's final. I also have a premium PSU that I bought ages ago, I think it was 1200w, or 1500w. I might have to suck the dust outta that one.
