Budget:
[3000]

Expectations:
[ALL THE FPS IN THE WORLD]

Usage:
[Gaming]

Special Needs:
[Id like to know if bluetooth compatibility is there, or if a separate component is necessary]

Saved Ticket #: [3541846]

Basically, Im a hardcore gamer and its time for a new rig. Gone with DS twice and never been let down. Im probably gonna wind up with a 32 inch curved monitor, so I want something that can crank out all the details possible on games like Cyberpunk across the resolution of a 34 inch monitor.

The only thing I could suggest to you is to change storage set 1, for your OS, to a NVME type storage. Much faster on boot up than a M.2 Sata. If you changed the storage set 1 to what I suggested but only made it a 500GB, that saves you $100 and it's plenty of room for your OS and some maintenance software and possibly small favorite programs.. Use that money saved to add a SSD as your storage set 2, size is up to you. Yes, it will cost you a bit more than what you are showing, BUT, with the discount you get it should bring the actual total cost down to the $3 grand mark you set as your limit. NOTE: you won't know the actual discount until you order, but you can safely expect that over $3000 your discount would be $300.

Good call, thanks. I actually have a second drive on hand Im gonna use as a back up/second drive. Its a 1 TB SSD. But If the drives are faster like you say, I' probably go ahead and upgrade simply because it isnt a terrible amount of money. Do you have a preference for samsung vs seagate 1 TB SSD NVM?

I got Samsung only because with Intel, they are still Gen 3. AMD MBs are Gen 4 and then you would want to go Seagate. You can still go Seagate if you like but I am not sure of cost difference.

My old PC had a very good Samsung SSD for a boot drive and several other SSDs for storage. This new Velox I got a spec'd with NVME as my boot drive. It boots up and ready to go in 10-12 secs, if that. Made boot up on the old PC with SSD seem like forever. You won't be disappointed making the change.

None of the three lower tier boards have onboard Bluetooth. A Maximus XII Hero would put you over $3000 for an extra $100 discount. ($3111 to be exact if you got the 500GB Seagate NVME. Less $300 = $2811.) If you don't want to go that route, you might consider the Asus TUF board just because...$45. you can always get a Bluetooth dongle.

The 500Gb Firecuda is $68 cheaper than a Samsung PRO, and you'd never know the difference. They are 5 times faster than SATA. Most of that price break goes away at 1TB. (1TB Firecuda vs 1TB Samsung 970 EVO PLUS is only $15.)
