    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    Yeah we don’t have that anywhere I don’t think. I believe it came with a bracket, but I think you need to get an updated one for the newer gens anyway? At this point I’m hoping the stock cooler will be suffice. I was looking at some of the good air coolers it there, he prefers those over AIOs...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    Ohhh dear.. okay I think I am going with that motherboard and that RAM for the extra cost haha. It ships from Canada so the shipping is actually less anyway... There! I did it! I bought it all, finally haha. Thank you so much for all the help! I’m super excited and it’s not even my computer...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    Ohh I was looking at the Gigabyte mobos. I always instinctively go towards MSI only because that’s what I used for my Q6600, 4690K and now my 9700K haha. I was looking at this one possibly https://www.newegg.ca/msi-mpg-x570-gaming-edge-wifi/p/N82E16813144261 I also picked out an MSI for his...

    Wait, are the B450 Max and B550 Max boards eventually able to support Zen 3?! I didn’t think they were..l but if I’m reading correctly, the Max boards can with a bios flash eventually?!

    I thought about shipping too... but customs would force us to pay the sales tax :( Sad times with the border closed! We definitely want to go with an x570 but man I am having a hard time picking one out... why does it feel like there’s so many reviews of so many issues with all of them? Then...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    If we had a second complete setup, going with a capture card would definitely be the best option. But we are lacking a ton of parts we need for that haha. Hmm I’m having a hard time choosing a motherboard. I see the cheaper MSI option but it looks like it’s had a ton of reviews complaining...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    Yeah that definitely sounds like a good idea haha. Then he can go with a better motherboard, and hopefully RAM :) I'm trying to decide on RAM now. I've heard Ryzen really shines when paired with faster RAM, but I'm not sure what constitutes as better than average speed. Is 3200 pretty standard...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    I'm curious, I just realized the 3700x is a lot cheaper than the 3800x and seem to be around the same in performance, is that right? I'm thinking he should just go for the 3700x for $399CAD right now. Would there be much of a difference in actually spending the money on getting a 3800x instead?

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    Yes! The g0! That chip was amazing! I do have a Arctic Freezer 120 for my 9700K.. so I think it’s decent enough for OCing. I never upgraded to something bigger yet. I’ll have to checkout that overclocking tool. My husband doesn’t really care to OC, but I always loved it and would definitely...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    Ahhh. See, back with my Q6600 (That chip overclocked like a champ, good times) and my 4690K I manually overclocked as high as I could. But I haven’t even manually overclocked my 9700K yet, I just do the simple one my mobo does itself haha. Eventually I would like to OC it again myself.. and...

    We definitely will watch out for sales! Do you have any recommendations for a good motherboard to pair with that? Wouldn’t mind getting a better one he can continue to use down the line. I know nothing about AMD motherboards haha.

    He does stream with one webcam as well. I can’t even see all of the exact settings he uses as he’s on a military tasking for another week, but he’s been using Streamlabs. Although I don’t think he uses NVENC. I’m not sure if we ever tried that, actually. The games that give him the most issues...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    Really?! Haha I was not expecting that. I’m not sure what it is then, but my 9700K 1080 combo runs a lot better than his setup when streaming many things. I did not think the GPU would be the culprit. If anything, perhaps the slower RAM in addition to the CPU. I even just recently reformatted...

    Upgrading PC for gaming and streaming

    My husband is planning to upgrade from his current CPU/mobo/RAM and I’m looking for some advice. He currently is running a 7600K, 16GB Crucial Ballistix LT DDR4-2400 RAM, and MSI Z270 Gaming 5 mobo (Paired with a 1080ti) He games a ton on it, and also streams to Twitch. His current setup has...

    Wondering if I made the right choice still.

    Haha yeah, it feels like it's somehow gotten worse since the last time I upgraded. Or even the first time I built, back in 2008, with my Q6600. And with the 4690K, I don't remember hearing people say "Oh that's a waste, the new consoles are going to be more powerful than that processor next...
