Chiclet keyboards are membrane-based switches at the end of the day, using a mechanical method to activate the membrane, like the old IBM buckling springs. Mechanical boards still have advantages, like not having to bottom out, and being more reliable than membranes.

Oh, I didn't realize you could overclock it on non-Z87/Z97 boards

Thunderbolt also has use for eGPUs in super compact deployments. But they are mostly used for fast PCIe storage, which you may need external. For all purposes, Thunderbolt is basically a PCIe Gen 3 4x interface, making it capable of many additional functions. Need fast lan? Install a 10G Ethernet dongle. Need accelerated video decoding for your $35,000 camera? Get a red rocket.

ehh, the G5400 is pretty strong, but it still gets smelted by the Athlon 200GE and Ryzen 3 1200. It does level the old A8/A10 processors, however

a shame you can't overclock that G3258, you could probably get some more mileage out of it anyways, especially for older games

consider a keyboard with low profile MX Speed Silver keys. While it will travel farther than a chiclet keyboard, it's still a short time to actuation

If you update the BIOS, it should just be as simple as swapping CPUs. Keep in mind you may experience throttling if the VRMs can't handle all 8 cores

With all kinds of capable aftermarket designs out now for the RX 5700 (XT), would it be a better alternative now? I already know that performance is basically capped on aftermarket cards, however

It's too expensive and quite fiddly to get fully functional. It IS good, but not worth the premium.

I suggest the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE. As for cooling, I suggest an NH-D15 or a Fractal Celsius S36 if you are willing to spend extra

First, swap to the 3600, you won't see a tangible performance improvement after overclocking. For the cooler, I suggest the Scythe FUMA 2. The included thermal compound will be suitable.

The X570 AQUA solely exists to easily hook up to custom water cooling loops. If you are already using any of the following: (Water Block, AIO, HSF), this motherboard has no use for you

NCIX used to have a service where you could build a PC using the parts they had in stock, it only had a $50 fee. It's a shame they went bankrupt, though.
