Sure - I get your point on "grace period". The budget is available but my point was to wait for 570X or to go with 470X.
Thanks. It will also hold Windows 10 on it. What do you mean by high write environment please?
Would not hold photos and videos on it but run other programs off it. I guess, price wise, it may be a better choice for intel 2Tb than 1Tb 970 pro.
Thanks. Video editing will be on occasional basis and I am hoping that 16Gb will suffice. I will not be editing 4k or very large files.
I guess the option, as thesmilyone suggesteted, is to go for 3866 CL18 and tune it down to 3200 CL14 and then use pagefile.sys.
Thanks. I guess, then, it makes sense to go for good quality 2 x 16Gb 3200Mhz memory as I intend to use
Samsung 970 EVO 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD/Solid State Drive as my boot drive. This should give me speed for pagefile.sys if required.
If I go for 16Gb of good memory and a video editing programme requires more, will it use pagefile.sys on the Hard drive? Can pagefile.sys reside on a SSD to speed things up?
Many thanks. Final question - worth considering X470-F? Apart from the price difference, any real benefits?
Many thanks! My list is not "set in stone" and will certainly check your suggestions. Does the Asus B450-F have the same Bios as Crosshair? Does it have a backup bios in case a bios upgrade goes wrong?
Apologies for a late response. Have overclocked in the past and may do in future - hence the Motherboard. Any thoughts on a decent high quality wifi MB with good / user friendly bios options as an alternative?
The MB I have chosen is X470 and not X370 - hence the confusing error issue
Have always had Full tower cases - find them easier to work with (Currently have a Cosmos 1000 full tower). Also, I currently have 5 HDDs for various projects. On second thoughts, overclocking is a future option. Have overclocked at times in the past. Also, need 32GB (from past experience).
I assume the be Quiet! cooler is "fairly" easy to install? I plan to go for 4 x 8GB memory sticks.
Many thanks. I am also considering Ryzen 2700x for cost / performance purpose. Will appreciate your views please? Also, the MB to go with it?
Impressed with the low cost upgrade!! Need a decent 23inch or so monitor as well as the price so far is low.
Will my existing Cosmos 1000 work ok with these components?
