Honestly, I would rather recommend the SeaSonic Focus Gold 650w if you can get it cheaper than the Corsair TXM

The 3600 kit is over all faster, but if money is a real consideration, I would try to get the most out of the 3200 kit as you possibly can

E-ATX is a general term for ATX boards that are wider than usual, so the board is still E-ATX

While I'm pretty sure the 3200 CL14 is slightly faster, 3600 CL16 is much cheaper and easier to come by

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What happened to all the black/red GPUs with the newer generations?"

  • 22 days ago
  • 1 point

RGB makes sense from a business standpoint. Last generation, many people stayed away from the MSI Gaming X cards because it clashed too much with color-neutral themes built around LEDs. Black, White, and Gray/Silver are the dominant colors now because of their neutrality, and how well they mesh with LEDs

Comment reply on Forum Topic "learning to use mouse and keyboard questioning if i should build pc..."

  • 22 days ago
  • 3 points

to add on to what they suggested, using a keyboard and mouse isn't the only option. You still have access to controllers. But as for learning to best use the keyboard and mouse, I suggest binding all the keyboard functions close together, to make them usable with one hand. And for the mouse, I suggest trying out different settings and always having a crosshair that contrasts the action nicely

That's just too much. No room for upgrades and overbudget. The RTX 2080 isn't worth all the other compromises you have made

How I see it, you have already invested in the platform. 10 more frames of in game performance isn't worth an entire rebuild

The 8 cores in the next gen consoles will very likely be underclocked a tangible amount to fit the $500 MSRP. A powerful hexa-core like the Ryzen 5 3600 still holds its own. You don't need them now, and if you need them later you can always upgrade

Only 500GB of storage for a modern gaming rig of this cost is not acceptable these days.

why? it's not like gaming uses 8 cores better than it uses 6. That's money that is better spent on the GPU

if you are building a new pc, keep the monitor and keyboard. If you are switching to console/not gaming anymore, keep them anyway

I would say build it yourself. You can even play new games at 1080p higher settings if you want with this. I included a disc drive so you can load disc based games https://pcpartpicker.com/list/hB4D27
