I would like my all in budget to be $2500. With a RX3070, I will be a could of hundred over.
I need a Monitor and KB, but not a mouse. I am thinking about an Obsidian case, but left the Lian Li case in as a place holder.
My real questions are around the MoBd and the M.2 storage. I went with the z590, but with a PCI3/0 interface for the m.2
Any thoughts are appreciated.
Greetings. That would be just fine for gaming. What questions did you have about the motherboard and m.2 drive?
The motherboard has the following:
PCI Express 4.0 x16 - 1
PCI Express 3.0 x16 - 1
PCI Express x1 - 1
If I use the PCI 4.0x16 slot for the GPU.
I chose a PCI 3.0 m.2 storage card. Does that make sense? Should I look at a motherboard with 2 PCI4.0 slots?
The m.2 slots are their own screw-in spots on the motherboard. It should have three of them per the manual.
They are labelled as such in the motherboard manual:
If you want to put it into a PCI-e slot you can, but you'd need an adapter to do that. https://www.microcenter.com/product/483678/vantec-m2-nvme-ssd-pcie-x4-adapter
Thanks, Ian. Much appreciated!
