    Time for a new system

    Have been wanting a new system ever since the AMD Ryzen processors came out 2 years ago, just started putting together new system which will have one of the new Ryzen 3000 processors at its core.

    Case is a Corsair Carbide 275R White
    Power supply EVGA 600 watt
    Motherboard MSI B450 Tomahawk
    Processor Ryzen 5 3600 or Ryzen 7 3700X will have to see what prices are at launch
    GPU will be my Inno3D GTX 1070
    Memory 32 GB RGB kit 3000
    primary HDD WD Blue SSD NVME 500gb (boot drive)
    second HDD Crucial SSD 1TB MX500 (main games drive)
    third HDD 3TB Toshiba P300 (data drive)

    Now have a 2 and 1/2 week wait for the processor to land :-(

    If you are going to buy online why not do it and help B-F keep going at the same time!

    Looks like a good set up for a bit of VR, you going to make the leap?, I can't fly any flight sim without it now.

    Its a bit marmite I guess. Although you would be blown away the first time you feel like you are actually sat in the aircraft!

    Maybe we should have a meet up at my sim. If a few of us (who are left) got together we could have a day playing in the sim then maybe a beer at night. I could maybe set the VR up there too.
