oh lol, yeah I'm terrible with cable management, getting better though
What's wrong with my desk setup? lol my room is very small with not much space to work with and I need space for VR unfortunately.
Gonna buy a new desk eventually.
The monitor doesn't support freesync as far as I am aware.
It works as a normal monitor with a high refresh rate.
Perfectly so far, zero issues at all. I'm relieved as I heard a lot of issues were plaguing the RTX 2070 and 2080's.
Yeah I would recommend the Viewsonic monitor. It's a decent price for a 1080p 144Hz curved screen monitor, just make sure you have a good quality HDMI cable, the one that came with the monitor isn't good enough quality and gave me a scare with red blotches on one half of the screen, I thought it was broken till I used a more expensive cable :/
scratch that, getting a stable 4.0 with 1.325V
some low-end cards I absolutely agree with you, but I wasn't necessarily referring to lower end or mini/low-profile 2060's, just that 2060's that don't have 3 fans and LEDs and come factory overclocked can still be brought up to roughly the same clock speeds that mine came with out of the box, mind you the savings are generally only about $50 USD compared to the other decent 2060's so it didn't bother me too much
As far as I have come to understand, Ryzen CPUs work better with better memory clock, and the X470 has better Memory support.
Also for some future-proofing, the X470 has 2 more SATA ports for more expandable memory, and my Thermaltake case has a lot of room for memory. Better RGB too lol
