Help me build my PC 2020 Catch All

Yeah I won’t get into the whole AIO vs. Air discussion but at the same time I’ve used AIO for years now with no problems. It’s clearly specific to this brand and company and it’s just a garbage product (like many different products end up being)

I agree with you on low profile ram. All my other systems have it but I did buy 128GB of fancy Corsair RGB ram for my Threadripper system that I don’t want to get rid of it.

Some surprise news from Nvidia and LG.. looks like LG will enable G-Sync compatibility for the 2019 E and C series OLED HDTV's. Pretty awesome and now I want to upgrade my old 2016 LG that I use as my PC monitor.

The mainstreaming of variable refresh rate technology seems to have accelerated of late. ~3 years ago it cost me $700 for my XB271HU and now you can buy something roughly equivalent for $280. No word yet on whether it'll be G-Sync compatible, but I might pick one up either way. That's a very good price for 27" 1440p VA with or without VRR.

I bet LG was already working on FreeSync for the next gen consoles and this was a bonus. They haven't announced according to the article, but probably had some kind of promotional deal to announce Nvidia first.

Cool, though.

Could someone break down for me the tradeoffs in buying a new, current-gen entry-level card (e.g. GTX 1660 Ti) versus an older, used mid-tier card (e.g. GTX 1070), assuming that the prices are roughly equivalent?
