This would sure make up for a mediocre Christmas.

There is more pleasure in giving than getting.  That being said, it's always fun to win a raffle prize!

As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".

Nice to get started on a long overdue upgrade!

Adept II

I could sure use this, thanks (I hope!) AMD

Adept I

would like to move to the next gen

Hi everybody! Last week, I finished my build with a Ryzen 5600G, 16GB 3200 RAM, Samsung 1TB SSD, and MSI B550-A Pro motherboard (no GPU card).  I am using it with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 with low-end settings and loving. It is amazing to me how far PC technology has come since I first started using it in 1980. I'll never stop loving computer technology.

Great upgrade from the 3600x in my wife’s PC👍

Good luck everyone! However, I hope the price on the motherboards for these CPUs drops soon.

Adept III

Somebody will be getting The Christmas present they really wanted but didn't 😉

Adept II

Awesome, another prize pool! Jumping in! Oops forgot my swimsuit. Oh well, skinny dip it is!

I'll throw my hat in, but haven't done a lot of research on AM5 boards yet. Guess that's what I'm doing today.

This would be a nice upgrade!

Probably would go for the ASUS Prime B650-PLUS. I've used the STRIX B450-F and STRIX B550-F, and they are good, but the Prime is $100 CAD cheaper than the STRIX B650-A. Can't be wasteful in this economy!

I've upgraded last year to my AMD Ryzen 7 5700G from AMD Ryzen 3 1200(i dont remember lol)! I'm planning to build another rig as a gift, it'd be ideal 😙

Adept I

Hi hi!  Current game I'm playing are Pistol Whip for VR. Would recommend.

Adept I

Thinking of buying myself to upgrade my pc. Old motherboard is braking and I could use this.

Adept III

Hoping to pick up a 7900xtx from sapphire this year! Would be an amazing gpu upgrade!

Adept III

This could get me in trouble. If I won I would have to buy a new mobo, memory, and a new PSU. I would probably need a new case and GPU, and of course a new M.2 drive and a big internal hard drive. Oh, and lets not forget a new AIO RGB Cooler. This could definitely get me in trouble.

Adept II

I always buy AMD!


I looking to build a new BOINC host.

Cool contest... but I am still in love with AM4.

Adept I

Awesome, thank you so much!

Adept II

This CPU would pair well with my Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6800 XT SE. 


Adept II

Looking to build a new gen system for flight simming and VR. I know it's going to be an AMD rig, deciding on the processor and B650E motherboards right now.

Thank you for the recommendation. I had my eye on the ROG Strix B650-F, similar specs. Is there something I'm missing?

not much difference in the boards. The E has some extra ports and wifi. 


yoo nice one!

Adept III

Good luck everyone and Happy New Year.

Please, don't throw me in that AM5 briar patch!

Next Gen sweet

Adept III

Upgraded my PC this Christmas to a Ryzen 7 5800x could not be happier -wanted the Ryzen 7 5800X3D but all sold out everywhere. The Ryzen 5 7600X would be an amazing upgrade

Ryzen 7 5800X3D, Radeon RX 7800 XT, MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE Wi-Fi, 64 GB DDR4.
Adept II

Very nice.  Too bad the motherboard prices are so high, well at least the ones with all the features.  Would be nice to win

Came to see if others were also having 6800xt crashing issues with 22.11.2, happened across this post.  Thanks for the chance!  Hopefully I can rank by then.

Are these sweepsteak avaible for those living in England?

Adept II

I am still on AM4 so yeah it would be a great start. Thanks for the OP.
