    looking to upgrade cpu/mobo/gpu..

    as per the signature my rig is not super out dated but i'm definitely wanting something more like a 3900x but the unknown for me is what mobo can support that type of beast with overclocking in mind. gaming isn't something i often do but i would like to jump on the pcie 4.0 wagon and get that rolling. i figure i'll end up buying 1 piece at a time unless i can spot a online deal, budget would be around 700 or so?

    any suggestions welcome

    PCIe 4.0 for what usage? Other than maybe NVMe, GPUs will see no advantage.
    I'd personally just get a much nicer X470 Board and save some money compared to the X570.
    Plus no chipset fan and also less chipset power on the X470.

    I agree PCIe 4.0 is not that big of a deal until we see GPUs and other devices move over.

    AMD is doing great now so its a good time to enjoy the savings over Intel.

    yea, i suppose. put the money saved towards a bigger SSD. i like the 500gb i have but it's about half full and maybe a 1tb ssd is in my future.
