    Okay boys, fist time I’ve posted in almost 10+ years.
    My previous pc got destroyed after having an ex poor 2lites of coke down the top vent... yep don’t get me started. Took the change for the better.

    it’s time now.. I’ve just purchased a new PC.
    I know that the shift into the new AMD chips are happening and the 3xxxx cards are rolling now. I needed the pc as soon as possible.
    Thought I’d let you guys pick at if my made any issues. Unfortunately I’ve already purchased it so let my worries become reality.

    AMD Ryzen 5 3600
    NZXT Kraken X63 280mm AIO Liquid CPU Cooler
    Lian Li Lancool II Mesh A-RGB Case Black
    Corsair RM750x Gold 750W Power Supply
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz CL16 DDR4
    ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro M.2 NVMe SSD 1TB
    MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk
    ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Dual EVO OC V2 8GB Video Card

    I look forward to down the track picking up a better cpu from in here once some sellers start appearing.
    Took the plunge in the 2080S as I was tossing up, getting the 1660ti and waiting for the 3070 release (months again) double purchase.
    Or 2070S, but the 2080S was only $150 more. So.. went with that.

    Could cancel the purchase, what would you recommend. It’s the weekend so it hasn’t been processed.

    no idea man, bad time to buy a GPU - if you have onboard as an option i'd nearly be tempted to use that for a month or two and just not have anything.

    3080 is out - hard to buy.

    AMD is gonna drop "big Navi"

    just yeah terrible time to buy a GPU.

    Oh the 750W may be pushing it, but you'll probably get away with it.

    yeah you see that was the issue I was finding, I don’t think the 3600 has an onboard, but I might of had a crappy old Radeon laying around for the mean time.

    i also felt trying to get the 3070 on release would be difficult
    3080 is out of my price range for the time being

    okay you got me... I’m going to hold off, canceled order. Going to put in a POS place holder until I can get my hands on something

    Edit: I’ve also got a 850w Seasonic Prime I might steal .
