    OK all i have atm is a AMD Ryzen 3 1300x and a MSI RX 550 2gb Aero ITX and an ATX Case. will be getting a 320 chipset MATX MOBO. 4-8Gb Ram and a PSU. Maybe a Standalone Soundcard.

    Do you think i should get a different MOBO / RAM / SoundCard?

    will be running Crypto/Mining when not used for Theatre/Viewing.

    Something to run a Netflix / YouTube rig you could get away with a sub-$100 NUC off the forums or ebay, hell even a cheap laptop that has a busted screen would suffice. You probably wouldn't earn much mining in the background when it's not in use, but I guess if it's running all the time then maybe?

    Shouldn't need to change out what you have at the least anyway

    Has anyone had issues with Netflix flickering then freezing for a few seconds in any browser in Windows? Mainly while browsing titles.
