are there any advantages to going from b450 to b550 with upgrade to ryzen 5600x cpu other then pcie 4.
Ahh,,, there it is. If you still have your R5 3600 and are using that to build another PC, it makes more sense to put your existing mobo to use with that CPU and the upgrade to a B550 or X570, as some of the X570 boards are about the same price as the B550 boards now, the line between them is a lot more blurred than it was when they launched.ok still dont know what im going to do. if i change my mobo i will have everything but graphics card for 2nd pc.
I've seen that, but I think I would rather wait to see what's happening with AMDs 3d V-cache CPUs.ok still dont know what im going to do. if i change my mobo i will have everything but graphics card for 2nd pc.
I can't lie to you, I would pay the extra and go for the Asus. The build quality and performance on my MSi are both excellent, easily as good as the Asus, but the software for RGB is very poor and there were too many issues with installing the Dragon control center, the software doesn't need to be so fussy.these have been my top two choices and they both have excellent reviews and i really like the msi price but whats really holding me back is if i make a change i would want to use the pcie 4 and would want a 2 tb which is $$$$$$$$$ and then i would use my current 3.0 m.2 in second slot
All just waiting for your RTX 2080 Ti when you upgrade your main rig to an RTX 3080 or RTX 3080 Ti, right?and yes i have the 3600 and 16 gigs of 3200 ram and a nzxt 510 case and a 700 watt psu and a 1tb firecuda hybrid drive and the coolermaster cooler but may stay with amd cooler and see how it does.everything but graphics card and would have very nice rig to use or whatever.
Just taken a look at this, the 1TB drive price seems quite reasonable, but OMG, the 2TB it over twice the price, not a great deal right now. It would be cheaper to get 2x 1TB if you needed the extra capacity but that would require a mobo that accepts 2 NVME drives or more if you want to keep your Gen 3 in the same rig.if i go 1tb this price looks good
