  • can you compare FX9590 to 3950x? why no one compares old tech to new tech to see how far we improved in CPU. I want to see fx9590 with 5700xt or 2080ti vs 3950x with the same graphic cards and same amount of ram. if the rams are ddr3 vs ddr4 due to 2006 technology of fx9590 its ok. do some modern and old gaming comparisons. I want to see just how far a graphic upgrade could get me and others with old systems would take us today.

  • Everything in this kit are good choices EXCEPT WHY would you use a MSI mobo????????? And the ACE at that? Noooooooooo!!! There are much better boards to use. I would go with the Asus CH VIII Hero or the Gigabyte Master.

  • Wonderful build. Looks simply marvelous. I am looking to build a new gamer but do not think I can go full hog 2080ti. I am thinking of a Ryzen 7 3700x processor with AS Rock x570 Phantom mb and an Sapphire RX 5700xt 8gb GDDR 6 GPU. All other stuff pretty much the same. Welcome all thoughts.

  • It looks like a ferris wheel with all that shit lighting. I just ordered new parts for a build with focus on as little lighting as possible because I'm not fourteen and don't want to waste heat and power on some flashy lights that I won't see most of the time

  • I priced out a build with a 3900x and my total came to $2850. What the hell is the extra $1k? Edit: ok the graphics card and display.... alright. A little overkill but alright I mean I didnt buy anything yet, kinda waiting for the T3 so inevitably it will cost like $4k+ I really don't want to settle for the 3900x

  • I purchased a 2080rtx i8700 non k Hp Omen obelisk $1170 after taxes.. Monitor LG 21:9 3440x 1440p 144hz. Was $1200 .... I’m getting about 67-85 FPS Ultra settings BFV RTx is not activated. I have “prebuild” of what I really want but it hits $2500 after taxes with a 2080 super, Aorus Master x570 , 3900x. .....Monitor LG 21:9 3440x 1440p 144hz. I’m getting about 67-85 FPS Ultra settings BFV. Apex like 115fps ultra.... Should I return the HP and and build my own?

    • I'm using the Msi meg x570 ace motherboard by the way

    • Its holding out great so far. Only issue I'm having is with the ram. I have corsair vengeance rgb pro 3200mhz. It's running at 2666mhz currently because when I try to use xmp profile for 3200mhz the system will either crash on reboot or if I do get into windows eventually it might blue screen.

    • same hows it holding up i went with this

  • Beautiful!!!

  • Funny thing is that in 3 years this PC gonna be just a mid range :-D What a waste of money... Rather build 1000-1500 mid range rig now and after 3 years another 1000-1500 mid range rig and U still safe a lot of money(1850-850$)

    • Typically your stock CPU fan should already have thermal paste applied, sometimes if you get an AIO cooler it's either the same story or they come with a small amount of cheap paste. So you don't NEED any, but I would recommend buying some.
