    Going back to school - need new build $4000 budget

    you have pretty much the setup i will have so 1000w would probably be the way to go forward. the cost is minimal when buying new compared to having to upgrade in 6 months

    Going back to school - need new build $4000 budget

    good info on the extra wattage on PSU. i was looking at the seasonic prime 1000w and the AX1000 but no stock anywhere. will have to do some digging on the HX1000i from corsair. might be hard to find right now. might have to go EVGA due to stock issue but then again, i got time since my 3080 wont...

    Going back to school - need new build $4000 budget

    the PSU is from 2016. so 750W would be enough for the 3080 and 5900x? i tough they recommended at least 850W if you plan on OC. i was looking at the AM series from Corsair. seems pretty good but high in price. for the RAM, i am leaning on the T-Force due to timings. pretty low CAS with tight...

    Going back to school - need new build $4000 budget

    i am tring to find parts out there and it is almost impossible. i will probably stick with 5900x but the MB, i have no idea, i like the Hero dark but nothing for a while. any other MB out there with X570, Strix any good for OC.

    Going back to school - need new build $4000 budget

    yes, the objective is performance over price. will review some AIO and 5950x over 5900x. and yes supply is short for all parts. i am in a hurry but not that much of a hurry. i still have about 3 months before i hit the requirements for HW. For now it is just reading and exams.

    Yes monitor is for gaming with little schooling papers. would the 27 BenQ one be a good fit. I like the adjustable stand. As far as specs for computer go, its about 2 years old, 750 cpu on an EVGA P55 FTW with a 570OC Video card
