PC Build Forum

Hello, I am browsing around for a pc to build.

Asus Maximus Hero XII
DDR4 3200 2x 16GB

Asus Crosshair Dark Hero VIII
DDR4 3200 2x 16GB
Ryzen 9 5900X

These Seem to be equivalent for price. Leaning towards AMD; has 2 more cores, and PCIe 4.0 (when that comes) , and overall more performance for the same price.

Thats what I have been looking at. I’m curious if one would have some view points on other Gigabyte or MSI motherboards. Ryzen 9 5900x vs i9-10900k? Ive never built an AMD PC.

Any info and opinions would be appreciated.
