Hi! I am just about done with this build but I don't want to pull the trigger until I'm absolutely sure.

Couple factors:

  1. I am not ordering the parts until mid-november

  2. I have a freesync monitor, hence the Vega 64

  3. I am in love with the open air curved glass cases, hence the Core P3 (I will be getting the curved TG upgrade kit)

  4. My budget is 1500.

I will add to this list as I think of more, I appreciate your time!

Well. I had a big debate about this. freesync monitors are cheaper, but I think the Nvidia GTX cards offer more bang for your buck than the AMD GPUs. and i think there was a rumor that some guys got nvidia cards to work with freesync.....i honestly wouldnt hamstring the build for freesync hehehe.

Do you have any advice for my build? I have done extensive research and am going to be getting the Vega 64.

check out my build, it is waaaayyy faster and is below 1500$ if you take out the $960 monitor i want.
