forgot to mention, this RAM at the store showed $419.99 on the box. but it rang up at the regular price that was listed online. not sure why that price was on the package, but it was.

Corsair Vengeance 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-5600 PC5-44800 CL36 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit CMK32GX5M2B5600 - Black

@the_antsy_honda

thanks for everything, you answered everything and helped out a lot, much appreciated.

@Smahatma thanks for the helpful information as well. i was minutes away from buying the mobo w/o 10gb. basically, thanks for getting me to spend more money.

there may have been some others, sorry if excluded you.

Classic upsell

yeah, but to be fair, even if the 850 would run a decent to good GPU, i just hate stuff being on the border. because if something happens, even if it isn't related to the power supply, i would always think it was the power supply.

it's not like what he told me was unreasonable.

EDIT: your motherboard has a CPU fan connector and an AIO watercooler connector (so the motherboard can control the pump by itself).

850W is plenty. You aren't getting a stock i7 and any stock GPU anywhere near max output of an 850W PSU. Unless you're using both to render.

I have an i9 10900K with power limits disabled and a 3080Ti. The only way I can get it to use more than 650W is if I run Prime95 small FFTs and Furmark at the same time. And pretty much the only point in doing that is to see how hot the coolant will get. Gaming loads are closer to 500W.

3000 series GPUs were known to exhibit transient high power spikes so larger PSUs were recommended so there wasn't a risk of the PSU shutting down. 4000 series don't seem to exhibit the same spikes.

@TomDlgns how much did your rig cost?

i believe just around $1600 let me go through my list and make sure i didn't miss anything. that's also not including shipping/tax which i don't include because that can vary for others. i didn't buy everything online or from one place.

edit

$1,565.00

no GPU (yet)
no monitor (yet)

the problem is that your new options are:

4070ti at $840
7900XT at $860 (best value actually acquirable card)
7900XTX at $999 (impossible to find)
7900XTX at $1400 scalped (not worth it)
4080 at $1200
4090 at $1699 (impossible to find)
4090 at $2000 scalped (not worth it)

The 4070 ti sucks relative to those parts, but its not worth buying a new 3080 10gb for about the same price
and it might be more desirable for streamers or whatever for the NVidia features vs amd
:shrug: There's one showing for essentially $1600 USD ($2263 CAD)

conclusion: 4080 is the current high end value

4080 is also $1200 without markup

If the 7900XTX were actually available at $999 it would be the value king. $200 cheaper, basically the same performance.

And if the 4090 were actually available at $1600 it would also be the high end king of value
