Keep it around, for sure. I have a laptop with optical out and it is really nice to have that feature.

Shuttle had unvieled a 3-liter slim barebones w/ a single slot PCIe on the LGA1200 socket: XH410G
Thinking pairing this with a JCAT USB Card XE and a HDPLEX 300W LPS (powering both the barebones and the USB card).

Moving my previous build to the office.

Nice!! Reminds me of my SFF days. What portable monitor are you getting?

Picked up an Asus XG17! It’s a bit (very?) overkill, but I figure I’ll get enough use out of it.

Nice! Personally use 3x ASUS MB16AMT. I might move upto 3xXG17 if I go with a 17" laptop next upgrade cycle.

So I've decided to pull the trigger on a new PC. The ol' Threadripper just can't push the framerates my monitor supports. A large number of games don't leverage my 2080ti to it's maximum, leaving a lot of performance on the table.

I'm obviously sticking with AMD, but at the moment I'm sorta stuck on what CPU to get. When Ryzen 5000 launches, I think I'll be going for the 5950x, but in the mean time I need something to hold me over. I really want something that will beat the performance of my 2950x for games, but I don't want to spend a lot of money since it's a place-holder. I'd REALLY like a 3300X, but those are rarer than hens' teeth. The 3100 won't quite cut it for me. So at this point my only option is a 3600, but it seems silly since I'm only going to keep it for a few months. It's sort of a long shot, but I'll see if there's either availability for the 3300x, or price drops for the 3600 in the next week or so.

Whatever I get, I'll be slotting it into this, as it seems to be among the best X570 boards you can get without spending $500+.

I feel like if I sell my current Threadripper setup, I should be able to offset the price of the new platform, then the new 5950X will basically be an out-of-pocket upgrade. I don't think like $900 for a 2950X, 32GB of RAM, Gigabyte Designare motherboard, and a Noctua NH-U14S is unreasonable, is it?

I got this board and the 5950x built this weekend is a beast
