I have the GT version of that cooler: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WDPzK8/deepcool-gammaxx-gt-295-cfm-cpu-cooler-gammaxx-gt and it works for my Ryzen 3900x, so the (cheaper) 400 model mark5916 recommends should work just fine for you.

I have the Dell U3415W, which is the older model of the U3419W. Yes, it doesn't have HDR. That said, I do like it very much. It's also only 60 htz, so mediocre for gaming, but for productivity it's been fantastic. So for video editing, it should work great.

You are not alone, see this article: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1047142-yay-amazon-boo-asus-rog-swift-pg279qz/

I'd go with a more reliable manufacturer, how about this (IPS): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/6XPgXL/lg-27gl850-b-270-2560x1440-144-hz-monitor-27gl850-b

Or this (VA): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ZkF48d/msi-optix-mpg27cq-270-2560x1440-144-hz-monitor-optix-mpg27cq

In general: IPS has the best color quality, VA is second, but tends to have better response time .

Good, yes, fit, maybe. The liquid cooler may give trouble if you try to put it at the top (preferred position). It may have to go in the front.

It's plenty for your build as the others have mentioned, but I wouldn't go smaller since there is "room" to upgrade in the future with one that size.

You're welcome, I have a similar build myself (used for similar things). Take a look: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Bs3bt6

The MSI MEG X570 ACE motherboard you have on the list supports PCIe 4.0, and the 3600 speed memory, so you are good. It has 3 M.2 slots, so it's great for expanding storage later.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Need help with my 1st bulid"

Looks like the Vengeance LPX is compatible with the motherboard (always good to check that). Yes, it will work, you just may want to upgrade in the future for better performance. The PCIe 4.0 is faster than the PCIe 3.0, but it's not as noticeable in most applications as the memory speed is. If you are at your budget limit (I understand) and plan on future upgrades, this will work well for now and be easy to upgrade later (especially the memory) so you should be good. Don't skimp on the motherboard or CPU (they are the hardest things to upgrade later). Good luck!

Looks good, only two things to consider: 1) The drive is PCIe 3.0, you may want to consider a 4.0 one (but the performance improvements may not be noticeable). 2) The memory should be DDR4-3600 (that speed increase will definitely be noticeable).

Ryzen 3900x + compatible x570 series motherboard (such as the MSI MEG Ace, MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE WIFI, or MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS). Get some 3600 speed memory for it too.

Epic Build! How well does the monitor work with the video card? FreeSync working with it? Also, how are you liking the Void Pro headphones? (I'm thinking of getting the same monitor/headphones myself! :) Thanks!

Some do as test19 says. Check the reviews to see how well other people have found that a given free-sync monitor works with NVIDIA cards, especially the series of card you are using.

What is: A) Your Budget. B) Resolution you play at. You could play at 4k with high FPS (in most games) with a card like that.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "2080 vs 2080 super vs 2080 TI"

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

At the resolutions you are talking about, a game like Fortnite will have very high FPS even with a base RTX 2080 (which is a good card). To get high FPS with Fortnite, an RTX 2080Ti would probably be overkill. That said, if you do play competitively, you may still want to go for the Ti model (even though it costs twice as much) since more graphics intensive games would need it to get high FPS. Don't bother with the Super, it's around $100 more than the base RTX 2080, but only slightly better in performance.

I'm looking at getting that monitor myself, it looks great! Should work well with my RTX 2080. DarxenPlayz - what GPU will you use with the monitor?

I have the G910 Spectrum and I like it a lot. It's the newer version, the Spark is the older one that wasn't rated as well. I'd go for the Spectrum.

I'd look up the specs on the case and see how big a GPU it says will fit, then compare that to the size of the GPU in question.

If you want a nice one for work (not gaming) this is good: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tQJwrH/logitech-keyboard-920002555

If you want something that could also be used for gaming, but still works well for regular use, this would do (although it's at the edge of your price range): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/CqGj4D/logitech-g413-carbon-wired-gaming-keyboard-920-008300

Comment reply on Forum Topic "3700X cooling"

It's arguably the best air cooler for the price at the moment (at least one of them). It would work great with your build. Just check your memory as well (be sure it doesn't stick up too high).

Your case documentation should say how tall a CPU cooler will fit. Check that against the listed height of the CPU coolers you are considering. The Scythe Mugen 5 is excellent, but large. Check that it will fit.

Or even a regular RTX 2080 (the Super is significantly more expensive for only slight performance gains). If you game at 1440p, that's all you'd need. Only get something more powerful (and expensive) if you really want 4K.

  • 8 months ago

I have an ultra-wide and I love it. It's an old Dell with only a 60 hz refresh, but games still look great on it. For a new one, with a good refresh rate, I'd recommend the MSI Optix MPG341CQR.

Not at all, may be more power than needed, but the extra capacity wouldn't hurt anything (and it may run cooler). It would also allow for upgrades (more storage, etc.) down the road without having to worry.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First gaming rig"

For a sub-$1k gaming rig (including monitor) this isn't bad at all. The only change I might make is upping the PSU to 550w to be sure there are no power issues.

I'd shave some cost in the areas that ColdConduct said, and put that money into a better video card. Get one with 8GB of memory.

I use 3440 x 1440 (34", but 32" is good too :) I like it for the screen real-estate for both gaming and other things. Many games support 3440 x 1440 now, so there is really no down side (other than the cost :).

I was looking at the RTX 2070 Super for my recent (just a month ago) build. I ran into the same availability issues. I ended up getting an RTX 2080 (regular, not super) on sale (for about $100 more than the RTX 2070 Super) and I'm very happy with it. It does outperform the RTX 2070 Super.

I have an MSI RTX 2080 (non-super, see here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Bs3bt6) and I love it. I'd recommend the Super version of that card.

Both are very good. The Acer is an IPS panel and the MSI is a VA panel. Both types have their pros and cons (too much to go into here) but if you are going for a gaming oriented set up, I'd get the MSI.

Very nice, great price on the GPU. Reminds me of my build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Bs3bt6 The only thing I'd really change is maybe going for 3600 speed memory.
