The stores I'm allowed to use for my purchases don't have the Sabrent SSD, but can I assume that any SSD with the same specs and with high rating will do the trick?
Yeah if the SSD is gen 4 it will be the same. It’s just Sabrent were one of the first companies to release gen 4 but yeah they’ll all be much much faster than gen 3.The stores I'm allowed to use for my purchases don't have the Sabrent SSD, but can I assume that any SSD with the same specs and with high rating will do the trick?
What’s your budget? If you give me your currency I can have a look on that particular website that you linked. The stronger GPU the better.@MaxiPaxi
Final suggestion needed! The store doesn't have the GPU you suggested. Which of the following would you recommend for the motherboard you suggested and Ryzen 5 3600(I don't think I need a stronger CPU than this)?
On that website(komplettbedrift.no) I'd say around 3000 NOK is my limit. The first GPU I was thinking of buying was nearly 4000 NOK, but I don't need that much power.What’s your budget? If you give me your currency I can have a look on that particular website that you linked. The stronger GPU the better.
Sorry I’m an idiot. I forgot to post you a link.By "this", you mean all the ones listed in the link I gave you?
Ok, last question I promiseNo problem, glad to be of service.
Yeah, I'm going with Ryzen 5 3600.If you're going AMD, that is a very good X570 board
I'm getting either this or the Asus Rog x570-e
Yeah that’s a good motherboard. Any x570 will run ryzen 5 so you can pick pretty much anything you want depending on the features you want your motherboard to have.Ok, last question I promise
The motherboard you suggested will not be in stock for about 3 weeks, which is probably fine, but in case it isn't: is this a decent second choice?
MSI MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI ATX AM4

I'm assuming the power draw will be similar to a 2080ti? 650w would be a safer bet I'd imagine.I wonder if my 550w gold GPU will be able to handle the 3070 when it's out. Tempted to just cancel my ps5 pre-order and get one, probably still be able to sell my 2060 super for 250 quid.
Isn't the 3070 as powerful as the ti? That's why I was assuming. Might not be as power hungry though.For the 3070? Can't imagine it's as high as a 2080TI?
Ryzen's are incredibly power efficient so I'm hoping that would help - I'll wait for the reviews anyway.
https://www.tomshardware.com/news/n...shortages-to-last-through-the-end-of-the-yearIf you thought it would become easier to purchase an Nvidia RTX 3080 or 3090 by the end of the year, you would be wrong. And it doesn't look good for the RTX 3070, either. Today Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang revealed that the company expects the crushing shortages of RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards to persist through the end of 2020, saying:
"I believe that demand will outstrip all of our supply through the year," Huang said, "Remember, we're also going into the double-whammy. The double-whammy is the holiday season. Even before the holiday season, we were doing incredibly well, and then you add on top of it the ‘Ampere factor,’ and then you add on top of that the ‘Ampere holiday factor,’ and we're going to have a really really big Q4 season."
Jensen Huang's answer came during a Q&A with the press to cover the company's GTC announcements. Still, as expected, the topic of the ongoing shortages of GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 models bubbled up during the session. In response to a question about the shortages, Huang countered that the company hadn't experienced a shortage of supply, rather an abundance of demand:
"The 3080 and 3090 have a demand issue, not a supply issue," said Huang, "The demand issue is that it is much much greater than we expected - and we expected really a lot."
"Retailers will tell you they haven't seen a phenomenon like this in over a decade of computing. It hearkens back to the old days of Windows 95 and Pentium when people were just out of their minds to buy this stuff. So this is a phenomenon like we've not seen in a long time, and we just weren't prepared for it."
"Even if we knew about all the demand, I don't think it's possible to have ramped that fast. We're ramping really really hard. Yields are great, the product's shipping fantastically, it's just getting sold out instantly," said Huang, "I appreciate it very much, I just don't think there's a real problem to solve. It's a phenomenon to observe. It's just a phenomenon."
feck I hope Big Navi is somewhere near 3080 and has the price of a 3070.https://www.tomshardware.com/news/n...shortages-to-last-through-the-end-of-the-year
Don’t think I will getting anything this month from Scan.
I keep eyeing up the G7. I've got a 35" ultra currently but it only does 100hz. Would prefer the extra frames of the Samsung over the extra width.So I really wanted the Odyssey G9 but decided to talk myself out of it.
As I'm at some point wanting to do some streaming, this monitor sort of makes it impossible, unless I still had a secondary monitor and, yeah, feck that
So instead I've just ordered an Alienware AW3420DW and AW2521HF

Absolute shambles. November, perhaps end of, which probably, actually means December, for a card that was released (supposedly) in September!Re: Update to your Pre-Order

Yeah, we have the same tower then.I assume you have the same as me, the h510? I don't think there's any way to disable the power light, it's a bit much at first but you get used to it. I guess it depends where you have your tower. Mine is low down so I wouldn't really be looking at it.
Do you have a link to your motherboard?Not sure if my mobo is usb 3.1 but the front usb works fine for me, if that helps! Sadly my mobo does not have a USB c connector though so that's wasted!
I'm thinking of unplugging the front panel connector and then plugging in all the individual connectors(the solution to the right in the picture I posted), apart from the HDD LED connector. But how do I plug in the individual connectors to the motherboard? I assume that I will use the same plug as I used in solution one, but now there are suddenly 3 individual pins. Does it matter where I connect them, as long as it's in the same plug that I used in solution one?
Well yeah a lot of towers have a separate light of the HDD and the Power. It's a bit annoying that NZXT decided to bundle them together, maybe to make it cleaner I guess. I haven't bothered to plug it out cause I've had it a year now and it doesn't annoy me to be honest! I find the RGB off the MSI GPU inside it more annoying to be honest Hence I've tucked it away in my desk.Yeah, we have the same tower then.
Have you tried plugging out the HDD LED? I read somewhere that the button flashes to "signal" that your harddrive is connected and that it's the HDD LED that is the "culprit".
Do you have a link to your motherboard?
The cables are alligned in a way that that makes it easy to see where they should go into the motherboard. Since I've already used the method to the left, I think I can "predict" which pins they belong to.If I'm reading the question right you're asking how the pins will attach to the motherboard? I've always done it as per option 2 in the diagram and there's approx 12 pins on the motherboard in one location and each one connects to a specific connector (note they are positive / negative so have to be orientated the right way). It's pretty easy to do, but you will need a motherboard diagram telling you which pins line up to which connector and in which direction the connector should be attached.
You can leave off any ones you want as they are just LED's etc. My HDD has a specific light independent from the power one, so the power light is constant and the HDD one flashes when it is in use.
