That's what I did - got/antsy and ordered a 5900x and MB to suit. Cheers!

I've heard that MSI and other motherboard makers will release updates for their current motherboards to make them PCIe 4 compatible with the Rocket Lake chipsets next year, but I can't find a great deal of info on the old Internets... Is this something that is in the works? I'm looking a doing a 3080 build, but wondering if I should wait for the Ryzen 5900x/get a 5800x, as the MBs for those are already PCIe 4 compatible, or get an i9 10900k and update the MB bios next year (if that is in fact the case)? The SSD I bought is PCIe 4 compatible, so would want to get that benefit, but if Intel boards can be easily updated through BIOS etc., then it'll be easier to go that route maybe than waiting for the 5900x to come back in stock... Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated!

Has anyone else been having an audio bug when the sound will completely drop out for a few seconds, then come back? There doesn't seem to be a particular event that causes it, or causes it to come back, and there's no consistency in the 'when' it happens either... It's kind of annoying, and I'm assuming it's a bug, as I've had it happen after updating sound drivers, with two different sets of headphones (one USB, one 3.5mm), and on my monitor's speakers. There doesn't seem to be much information online about it, so I'm guessing it's only happening to me and a small number of other people?

Any suggestions on how to fix? Is there something I'm missing?

I think it's all about how 2020 is, in a whole bunch of ways, just a fucking garbage fire of a year, and way more than in years passed. From the handling/perception of COVID (both governmentally and anti-maskers etc.), the protests/constant 'mistreatment' (which is way too light of a word for it) of POC, and the fires, anyone could be forgiven for thinking that the world has gone down the toilet. He mentioned on a Bombcast of at least 2 attempts at a vacation, one where his kid started throwing up everywhere and the other where he got scammed/ripped off. Add to that just bringing a child into the world in that context, and it's kind of fair to feel like shit about a lot of things. Even on the other side of the world, it's hard not to get massively depressed about the state of things currently...

This is, perhaps, the most insane gaming news story I can think of for the year. And think about what it does for Game Pass!

@ralphmoustaccio I've got the 750w PSU, so that's not a problem. Will just have to check on the case part

@ralphmoustaccio Cheers. Definitely looking for 4K, so by the sounds, a 3080 seems like it'll do the trick and give me that bigger bump. Appreciate it!

@ralphmoustaccio Cheers! Do you think an i7-9700 would bottleneck with the 3080? I know it may be too early to say, but I'm curious of the actual performance boost I'll get from just upgrading to the 3080...
