Hi guys. I've been waiting to build a PC for a while now and with AMD cpu's out it seems a good time.

Some parts I already have or will be fine for now from my current PC and GPUS don't exist right now! But my aim would be to have an RGB machine sorry

, so I'm getting what I can to work with Razer Synapse, just wondering if anyone has suggestions to switch some of the parts?

Thanks!

Would either grab x570 Master , for the better RMA

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/giga...4-x570-chipset-atx-motherboard-mb-57t-gi.html

Either boards are killer though .

Is also b550 master that offers triple PCIe 4.0 m.2 for £230 odd so good £110 saving. Believe the WiFi is also a higher standard then x570 boards.

I'm trying to recall is MSI worked with Razer , X570 Toma would again save a lot of cash

Thanks that's a good shout! I think I will go for an MSI 3080 should they ever exist again :D so the Tomahawk would fit, I was also thinking of switching the ram to corssair vegance. Reviews don't look very fond of the toughram?

seems it should connect .

My basket at Overclockers UK:
Total: £401.08 (includes shipping: £11.10)​

toma is the better choice . as for 3080... any thats in stock! most likely FE version

OCUK has Gpus but they're hidden in the 3D printer section to stop bot alerts, don't think there is any 3080s though and prices are quite high.

I'm not sure the 360mm AIO would give you much benefit over a 240mm, even if you were to overclock. Unless it's for asthetics or some other reason.

Mostly for the lcd screen to see temps and looking cool :D

Currently I have a 1080 , and seems to be okay with most games for now but yeah I don't expect to see gpus selling like normal for a while!
