I think its up to what you want. I don't know where you are but in Canada the 5700XT is cheaper than the 2060 Super while performing better. I'm not quite sure how the 5700XT compares to the 2070 Super, but if the 5700Xt is close to the 2070 Super then the 5700XT is the best bang for your buck. You also have to consider the Nvidia exclusive features.
As for CPU the 3700x is almost twice the price of the 3600, which means that there are definitely significant differences between those two. Maybe look at the performance difference and I'm sure you'll know which one suits you better. But if you are looking for a gaming/productivity build then I'd go for the 3600 as it is cheaper and is a very good chip.
Regardless of what you choose, I'd suggest you avoid Cooler Master/Thermaltake cases unless they have the specific case that you want.
Sorry for the late reply. thanks to the size of the Lian Li case, there is about 3 inches between the GPU and the side glass, and the temps are fine.
let me know if you need anything else
I just added a few screen shots of the color combo. Honestly, the whole pc looks a hell of a lot better than the photos can show. I kinda copied the colors off of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdiS2JknPbU&t=579s
There is so much potential with this case, I'm gonna start trying new combos.
oh very easy. the rgb fans and my corsair keyboard connects to iCue, and the case rgb connects to Razer's software. Razer's software is very easy to use, and it launches when you boot with no issue. The corsair icue, on the other hand, doesn't recognize the hardware if you turn on "auto launch when boot", I usually just manually launch it.
i tried it, its definitely good value, and it is the only one I can find with its antennas attached. Another thing is that the seller will return 50% of its original price if you upload a video review, but I eventually returned it because its Bluetooth connection with a xbox controller wasn't good enough
I used the parts from my first system that I built in August of 2018, at that time 2060 wasn't even announced yet. I got my 1080 for a very cheap price as well.
2 up front, 2 on top, 1 on back
Its quite nice, I dont think you need more stuff on your motherboard if you dont need it. This case from fractal design is considered a large case for m atx, so you get a shorter case but still plenty of room. This case can hold everything I have perfectly, but I dont recommend going all water cooling. Right now, I have an AIO for my CPU but not for my GPU, and the inside is kinda crowded. Sorry for the late reply, I dont visit this site as much now.
I'm not following prices anymore, but what's with the tariff?
I put them in the back seat and the guy didn't even ask about them.........it was dark....
What do you recommend for upgrades?
Thanks for the feedback!
tbh, all i've done is gaming, and I won't be doing stuff that is very CPU intensive, so I can't really tell you how it is. But I can tell you that I've seen many many many good reviews about this CPU and is totally worth the money.
I've also compared 2600 with many other Ryzen CPUs, but the 2700 is too expensive, 1700 is last gen stuff and more expensive, 2600x isn't quite worth it.
Honestly, I haven't noticed since the GPU fans are the main heat and noise source.
Thanks! I'll definitely check them out.
