Guess it get in before price jacking
Best CPU overall 2019 according to Tech Jesus - https://youtu.be/5RjS3AhDyJg?t=131
Got one, figured the price isn't going to get much better than that given historic low is $268
Yeah prob not until next year. I got a 3700x but kinda thinking this would have been a better buy overall.
Depends on what you are doing I guess. Mine is for a pure gaming build, premium to 3700x would not translate to much more fps
I bought this with a high end CPU cooler (you can choose between the nh-d15 or the dark rock pro 4) purely for gaming to get better performance and temps.
Cheaper @ Shallothead eBay
Haha wow, undercutting each other I see
cashback is not eligible if coupon code is used.
From shopback link 'the use of any coupon codes on eBay will void your eligibility for the regular 1% cashback, but you would still be eligible for the $5 bonus'
Buy this now or wait for new releases next year?
Also would you recommend buying from Shallothead etc for such large purchases? Usually I only use them for things like SSD etc. Dunno about a whole system.
Screw it - went for it! - My computer is garbage so need a new one
Picked up the below
16gb Trident Z RGB 3200 ram
b450 tomahawk max
500gb 970 Evo M.2 NVME
Seasonic 650W Focus Gold PSU
Gigabyte 2070 Super Gaming OC
Corsair 220T case (sh1t I hope the GPU fits)
Asus AC56 Wifi Card
TOtal cost about 1800 which is what I was budgeting. So think I've done alright for a 2070 Super build.
Plus chuck in the SSD through Gigabyte and NBA 2K20 on the M.2 drive. Done alright.
And I just ordered for $289 at Amazon…..
And now cancelled. Can't do more now because have to work, so will probably miss out altogether.
I literally saw it at $211 briefly with code PPD13. But now it's not valid anymore. Absolutely spewing. Was going to return the one I got earlier this week for $280. Was in the process of checking out then the code expired! GAHHH I wish I never looked
Another issue I have got is the GPU I bought has a bunch of displayport and 1 HDMI
My monitor only has 1 DVI and 1 HDMI
Can anyone recommend an adapter for DVI to DisplayPort? Not sure on what is going to give the best performance as adapters tend to suck.
Meanwhile, I'll continue to wait until the B550 motherboards come out…
I thought the same, but what are you really getting on a B550? Doesn't seem to have have PCI4 or anything.
I reckon jump on it now, can always upgrade later.
