Had a choice of a upgrade for my pc:

Either save some extra cash up and add it to the gift and do the cpu, ram, mobo and cooler or use what I was gifted and get a something I have needed for a quite a while.


I chose the better option and got a new monitor.

Acer Predator Z321QU

Gave my dad my Asus PB287Q as he needed a 2nd monitor but I am finally on the high refresh rate train and it feels GOOOOOOOOD

Nice one, welcome to the high refresh rate club! One question though, how are you finding the curve, on the monitor? Since I assume you had a flat one previously and that it doesn't look like an ultrawide monitor.

I'm liking the curve.


All my previous monitors have been flat panels, and when looking for a monitor I wanted something with G-Sync, 1440p, 144Hz and over 30" in size, wasn't bothered if it was curved or not.


I was looking at all different monitors but none of them tickled my fancy other than an Asus one and given my history with Asus and there products I just instantly said "not a chance" and went with the Acer.


Thankfully there are no dead pixels and the 165hz overclock seems to be perfectly fine as well


Played a single Solo game on PUBG and normally what I found was I would run in to someone in the same building and it didn't matter what I had or what they had, I would loose the fight almost 99% of the times, today though ran in to someone in a warehouse and managed to win the fight, then sniping later in the game it just felt so crisp it was glorius.


Played some Destiny 2 and it looks and feels amazing.


Going to try some more games over the next few days but so far, I am shaking my head asking myself the age old question "Why did I not do this sooner?"

I've been on the fence since before I ordered the 3800X as to whether or not I "need" the 3900X. I really don't need it, but I sent the 3800X back anyway. Now I just have to wait for the 3900X to be in stock again.

Out of interest, what's made you personally decide to go with a 3900X instead of a 3800X?

Sitting and waiting for the Impact board to be released. If the board would have been at launch, I'd already have the 3800X up and running. Idle hands....

FWIW the 3800x currently shows the highest 3000 series OC validated on CPU-Z at just over 5.9GHz (extreme cooling of course).

Well not really valid, since most users aren’t doing extreme cooling nor using that high overclocks.

Just got one of these at an absolute steal on eBay 340 quid brand new from a 100% positive feedback seller. V happy! (They're £440 on scan etc.)

P.S he/she is selling one more so get on it folks!
