I have spent way to long on this, please help.
The goal of my PC is 1440p at 60 fps on high (not super ultra type) quality and it’s only for gaming. I will be playing on a TV instead of a monitor. I basically play RPG type games and tend to heavily mod them (thus the 2TB SSD). I use WIFI only and would prefer Bluetooth 5 over 4.2, I know I can add both with a $50 card. I’m not big into overclocking, just minor adjustments to GPU with Afterburner type stuff (wait, I DO plan to enable XMP so I guess I AM hardcore after all).
So my main questions/concerns are;
Should I go with B550 or get a cheaper B450 and add WIFI\Bluetooth with card? If so what one? The 3600 is good enough now but options are nice, on the flip side a year from now B550 will probably be cheaper and have more options.
How much does CL on ram matter? Should I stick with the CL18 3600 or is it worth the $20 extra for CL16 3600?
The RX 5700 XT is stable now right? Most people seem to think so and it preforms better than the 2060 super that was my original choice.
Do I need the 650W PSU or would 550W be ok? It’s only $20 more so I played it safe.
Thank you for the help! I was a loyal PC gamer that got married, had kids, and my job turned into a career so I turned to consoles for my gaming needs (yes I’m ashamed of myself). Grabbed a HP OMEN laptop on sale a few years ago and remembered what I was missing. Been a surprisingly great laptop but the girl is showing her age now so time to move on. I figured it would be simple to upgrade but my God has everything changed! Hope everyone is doing well and again, thank you for any help because this is driving me crazy 😉
