Finally have someone wanting to purchase my current PC and even all of my peripherals. This might happen within the next two weeks so it's time to start to planning the next build.
Here's what I know so far:
I want a smaller footprint. No particular reason, for some reason I've just been attracted to jam packed micro-atx builds lately.
Definitely want a set color theme. I'm currently thinking white and have all RGB set to a cyan or purple.
I'm thinking about having the majority of my components Corsair just for the sake of syncing everything without having 10 different awful RGB programs.
I've decided to slightly downgrade (but not really) my CPU because I really don't need anything crazy. The 2700X in my current PC was definitely overkill and this time, I need to follow my budget a bit more so the 3600X will do just fine. Especially with the increased FPS since Zen +.
Anyways, thoughts? The only thing I'm hesitant on is the X570 motherboard. Are the new features really worth the price hike? I've been thinking about dropping down to X470 since I can save a good chunk of money.
