  1. I was also reviewing the motherboard, i forgot to post this earlier... Asus ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard vs Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard Now i'm no IT guru, but i ran a comparison between the two and the only thing I can see different is the B450 does not offer DDR4-3466 I'm no overclocker or anything like that, but am i paying for something i'm not going to use? as thats a saving of over £76... Thanks!
  2. I swapped out the CPU for the 3600x just to see the increase in price, but partpicker threw me a warning message.... Warning - Some AMD X470 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Matisse CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions. <Me, no idea :doh:
  3. Thanks for the reply, I thought the R-7 2600x would be better then an R5 - 3600x? Or does it not work like that? Thanks for the reply, I'll swap that PSU over :thumbup: I already have a Samsung 500GB SSD in my old PC, so I will be using that also. I should have the room? I don't think I could stretch to a HDD as I'm at the top end of my budget Any other thoughts? Would this be an up to date PC to run the programs like DCS. FPS etc? Kind Regards
