I want to try ITX because I’ll eventually get rid of my hard drives and won’t “need” the extra space.

But now with the rumors circling of the power requirements of next generation GPUs that may be a bad idea. SFF power supplies may not be able to hang.
If I didn't need 4 DIMM slots I'd have gone ITX and done a full custom loop.

I've got a 750w SFX ps and I'm worried I'm going to have to blow another pile of cash on another one in the same format, unless I swap cases when I go to a 40xx.

holy shit this wheel and base is insane. i only have it running 80% and i'm getting tired just doing some laps :rofl: had to reconfigure my rig to get the wheel farther away from me but i don't think i'll have to but the brace kit on, it isn't moving around at all with this thing.
BE CAREFUL, when I first got mine I jammed the fuck out of my thumb when an asswipe ran me off the track and I had the FFB cranked up. Now I just use a normal amount of FFB and it's still awesome.

Y'all think this current sale is probably it for best new pricing on current gen. Ryzen? I could wait until holiday season, but inventory might be gone at that point..


And I'll follow up: would you spend $100 more to get a 5800x instead of a 5600x?

I'm really the worst one to listen to, but if you need something right now, get the best deal on what will meet your needs. If you don't really need to upgrade now, wait for the new stuff and probably not be able to buy it either hehehe.

tbh most of the past 5 years have been terrible for building PCs for one reason or another, if you need a new PC just get a new PC unless there's a pending launch date for something (there isn't)

oh no no no, I have an X470 with a 2600x.

I always figured squeezing more life out of this thing would be plunking down the last ryzen supported for it. Thinking between 5600x and 5800x

sister also just replaced a regular ass 2080 she bought in 2019 that's overheating; have a 2070 (non super) and figure if I can get that for free/shipping from her, this might be as good as it gets before I do in fact rebuild; or hold out with 5000 series and ride a newerish GPU for as long as I can;

My PC isn't changing much; if anything, I'd might be buying a second case/mobo to build a casual gaming PC on my current hardware or sell the 2070 to a coworker for $150~ and maybe flip the 2600X for $70~
:dunno:
