Building PC

Hello guys, so I will be getting partnered 3080c but I’m not quite sure what motherboard to get as we wait for Ryzen 4000 series to come out. Build: Motherboard: bought B450 Tomahawk Max, but am worried about pci 4.0 not on the board. Cpu: Ryzen 3800/4000 GPU: 3080 Ram: 2x 3000mrtz Psu: 850 watt 1 T Hard Drive (Not enough money for ssd :( ) What do we think? Also why will new partner cards be Almost $1000 for 3080???? Predictions are 749.99 pound, which is equal to $977 usd. I live in US rn

save up until you have money to get m.2 or at least sata ssd. no point having top of the line computer that doesn't even want to boot up

Get B550 motherboard. PCI-e 3.0 will still be enough for 3080. RAM: ideally 3200 CL14

Can it still run if it’s not 4.0 pcie?
2020-09-03 15:32
Yes, it's compatible and PCI-e 3.0 speed will be enough for 3080.

Ah sweet, thank you for that info. I should still upgrade ram and motherboard even though I bought both already?
2020-09-03 15:42
If you bought it recently and can change it in the shop without losing money then change. If no, then keep it.

The ram is a year and 2 months old, the motherboard I bought 2 months ago unopened, but the refund period is over since it’s 30 days I believe.
2020-09-03 15:55
Do you have a CPU? You would need it to flash BIOS with Zen 3 support.

I'm waiting for the Ryzen 4000/ zen 3 cpus to come out
2020-09-05 05:26
If you have not enough money perhaps you should go for less expensive GPU but for more balanced build?? B550 motherboard Ryzen 3600 (I'd wait for new gen tho) 3070 GPU 3600 CL16 RAM 512 gb SSD 650W PSU

The board does have a sata slot, i just don’t have the money to get with everything I posted. I am waiting on the Ryzen 4000 series to see if I buy 3800 or a 4th gen cpu.

This is the perfect advice.
2020-09-03 16:10
just buy like 500gb hard drive then buy 120gb ssd for operating system for fast boot
2020-09-03 08:13
Imagine buying rtx 3080, ryzen 3800/4000 and buying HDD...

Ah, yeah it’s the one thing not in the build since it’s a rebuild. I’ll get one eventually
2020-09-03 15:54
could just get a small ssd instead of an hdd or get cheaper ram

+1 also 3000mhz ram...
2020-09-03 15:48
This guy probably just buys this stuff to tell his friends he has cool high-endish GPU and CPU yet still uses HDD and slow ram. Better choice would be to save a bit more money for SSD and proper ram or just buy 2070super/2080super and buy SSD and ram with change

Guess he should get 3070 instead of 3080, get some ssd and buy faster ram. But he wont listen anyways;d

Hello, it all depends on your needs of course, but personally I would recommend a smaller SSD over a larger HDD as an SSD will make a significantly noticable difference, especially as seeing you are spending quite a lot on your hardware, surely you must be able to save up for it, but I will not judge your financial situation, just know there are cheaper SSD that still work great, like the Kingston A400, which is priced at $35 for the 240 GB one where I live. Please also note that certain types of memory gives a performance boost with Ryzen processors, I do not remember which types of memory it was, but a quick search will give you the answer, however it is not too important unless you want the absolute most out of your hardware as any memory will work good too.

Greetings, thank you for the response. This is actually a rebuild I’m doing, so I already have the 2x 8GB 3000 ram sticks. I will however, look into the ram situation and ssd. A lot of people have mention ssd, but how big do I need it? Warzone takes 210, and others are pretty big.
2020-09-03 15:34
Take at least 250 gb, it will be enough for a system and 1-2 games.

Okay, thank you for that info. The ssd is for games only correct?
2020-09-03 15:44
SSD for system is a must and personally I prefer to keep games at SSD as well since I don't keep more than 1 game installed at once, but maybe HDD would be fine (can't say cuz last time I installed game on HDD probably 8 years ago).

Dang XD. So I should keep the most heavy GB games in Ssd like destiny 2 and Warzone, and the rest in hard drive? Or do I go buy 1 T ssd?
2020-09-03 15:55
1 tb SSD would be ideal. Or at least get 250 gb SSD and keep only most important games there and rest on HDD.
2020-09-03 16:03
wtf mens, dont build a 1000$ pc without an SSD thats like having a Ferrari with the acceleration of a Indianrockolis 500 from flintstones.

get faster ram, and you must be baiting if you're saying you don't have enough money for an SSD. SSD is a must in 2020

The only issue I see, is the lack of an SSD, be it Sata, m.2, nvme, whatever it is. I don't think that you can "cheap out" on the VGA model you'll pick. Try to get one from the best brands, and watch out for the specific model tests. But think about it, even if you start with a cheapo SSD, and later on, you buy a larger storage, at least you'll have a speedy system from the get-go, and won't have the trouble of migrating to a new drive later on.

So much money without SSD is so useless bro. Juste take 3070, save money and take SSD.
2020-09-03 15:45
getting 3080 but not an ssd xaxaxaxaxa
2020-09-03 16:05
-get b550 (any decent b550 will be enough for 8 cores) -get ssd -get 750watt psu, even if the 3080 needs 320 watt u will be fine, as all 750 watt psus should have 3x 8pin -get at least 3600 cl16 ram as u dont wont to slow down the infinity fabric in your cpu (should be like 5% more fps in csgo) Edit: get at least a cheap aftermarket cpu cooler, like the arctic freezer 34, arctic p12 fans are great and for 25$ its a cheap upgrade from the ok amd stock cooler
2020-09-03 16:15
Buy Zen 3 series later this year
2020-09-03 17:50
Wait a 250gb m2 ssd can be found for 40$ and you dont have money for that,and ur buying RTX 3080 and ryzen 3800X,whos lying here??!?
2020-09-05 05:31
Not enough money to pay $20 more for an ssd but you have a 3080? lmfao
