    r9 380x to ASRock Phantom Gaming D3 Radeon RX 5600 XT

    so recently I tried playing some games and found my r9380x too be lackluster with newer games. I twitch stream so smoothness is important to me. I pulled the trigger on a ASRock Phantom Gaming D3 Radeon RX 5600 XT and now realize my board only supports pci-e 3.0. is this gonna screw me? I would...

    Need a new setup...money is no object

    ok how about this, i have been looking at processors motherboards etc but my knowledge is from years ago when intel and nvidia were king. Seems that may not be the case now.

    Need a new setup...money is no object

    If I had to putcap a budget it would be around 2k last I knew and was way behind CPU wise and the r9380x I have is good bit it didn't impress me much with driver issues sputtering. I think if possible I would like to avoid any of that crap

    Broken Video Cards. Buy now or wait for Polaris/Pascal?

    buy the fury now. seriously. the whole "wait" theory is moot plain and simple. new architectures always promise huge things. me personally if you think a fury possibly wont be enough then don't bother but the fury should be able to compete on some level with the new releases and typically the...
