I'm wondering if it is worth paying a premium for a display with a much higher refresh rate than my GPU can match.
Does it provide 0 benefit? A little? Less motion blur or something?
Yes this is a naive question, i really don't know.
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Reportedly a “Budget Card,” Weaker Than NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
"The Radeon RX 6700 XT will reportedly feature 40 Compute Units, 12 GB of memory on a 192-bit bus, boost clocks of 2.35 to 2.5 GHz, a GPU power of around 200 watts, and less Infinity Cache than the flagship...
Is the msi one good?
I'm going to use it with 5600x and a thermalright axp-90 in a dan a4 case.
I don't have any special requirements, a decent sound chip would be nice though.
Any tips and suggestions appreciated, I haven't built a computer in ages
Is this motherboad a good choice for this case?
MSI MPG B550I GAMING EDGE WIFI Mini ITX AM4
Will use with thermalright AXP-90R cpu cooler.
Also concerned if typical height ram will fit, maybe i should remove heat spreader from ram
#1) How bad is it to game at 1440p on a 4K monitor?
I've always read that playing at a non-native res is worse. How much worse? Is this still true on newer displays?
Reason for question: I'm sure I'd game at 1440p and never 4k but I could occasionally benefit from 4k in non-gaming...
i've seen it in stock 4 times.
Each time, i make more than a dozen attempts with buy it now button, quickly dismissing warrantee popup.
I have never successfully ordered it.
I'm very frustrated. i have never gotten into my cart either.
I've tried adding it to the cart instead of using buy it...
The Thermalright AXP-90 received some great reviews, it fits especially well in SFF systems.
The problem was you had to order it straight from China for a long time.
Now I see two sellers on EBAY who are shipping them from places in the USA.
So now this option can be considered by more people.
I was all set to get some 5600x and some new vid card. Yeah that isn't happening.
So instead of being a shut in gamer I guess i'll do something outside and maybe actually acknowledge people.

johnnysd gave the correct answer here, while pendragon1 completely misses the boat.
AMD requires such a high output power supply because they have to account for the fact that there is extreme variance in power supply quality.
A high quality brand would cut it at 500W, a random cheapass one...
