    Can anyone out there give me a price range that graphics card would normally be at - before prices skyrocketed? I want to keep an eye on things and see if they “normalize,” but I don’t know what normal is. I’m seeing them listed at 1,700 bucks, which seems steep, considering many months old comments price the whole build at 1,300. Any info would be appreciated

    Is 80+ bronze power supply ok?

    • Nichola Brichieri-Colombi
      Nichola Brichieri-Colombi

      Yes, but it will be less efficient, and ideally for this price range you would want 80+ gold to 80+ titanium.

    So Microcenter moved the whole global GPU supply to that store? Can you make a "How to build a Gaming PC in 2021 if you don't have a Microcenter near by"? Thanks

  • Umbra

    Did you include having to pull back the little RAM thingy switches (i forgot what they're called) before putting in the RAM?

    • Umbra

      @Jose Javier Flores yeah ik, it’s just that maybe some people would try to put the ram in without opening the tab

    • Jose Javier Flores
      Jose Javier Flores

      I don't think so, but its not that hard. You just pull down on the tabs. Once you insert and push down on the modules, the tabs will lock into place. Do note that some motherboards may have only one side of tabs that can be locked/unlocked.

  • Zest Owl
    Zest Owl

    No, The Simple Answer is DONT AND CANT YOU JUST SAVED 31mins GIVE ME THE LOVE The GPU PRICE IS FKING 3x or 4x some dude asked me if I'm willing to buy his RTX 3090 for 4000$ FKING HELL Even Ram price is getting higher like a good 20$ difference I AINT TALKING ABOUT RGB SH!T its normal 3000mhz NORMAL Everything is fking priced up and people are getting fooled buying stuff like 3000$ RTX when the original price was something like 700$ So wait a couple of months as the new chips are coming and it should go back to the normal price like 800$ or If it gets to the point of too many chipsets i guess it should go below the retail if THERE is a 10% possibility if you think

    • Zest Owl
      Zest Owl

      @Pyro Bronson Also idk im just gona wait for 6 months so i can actually buy the thing idc if its the Founders edition or the other brand ones I just Hope to get my hands on 2 rtx 2070 with less than 2000$ So i can mine as much and proceed to completing my mining rig

    Anyone know what cpu is better for high end gaming ryzen 7 5800X or ryzen 5900X? I know that ryzen 9 has more cores/threads. But I am mostly thinking about which one has higher clock speed and single thread/core performance since that’s more important for gaming.

    • Jeevan Dhindsa
      Jeevan Dhindsa

      @Fast F. That means I am better of with ryzen 7 5800x then. It has a fast clock speed. Another reason I should get it is because so I could match up the cores/threads of the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Games will be optimised for that. Plus it will future proof my pc.

    • Fast F.
      Fast F.

      12 cores for gaming is money you could be spending on other components since the return on performance is not worth it. Your call
