You have 12 months to turn yourselves around and we'll be using a similar mystery customer approach with an internal employee. If there's no improvement, we'll be shifting our SOE over to another brand entirely, including our servers.

    I stopped watching when I saw the Core i5 box and then heard the MSI B460 MB was going to be used. It's fall 2020. Everyone knows that AMD processors have the best bang for the buck and AM4 motherboards can be upgraded to Zen3 processors. This build isn't anything but an advertisement for Intel.

    Not a bad gpu/cpu combo. You spent too much on ram rated at speed. Blu ray reader is unnecessary. Opt out for a smaller boot ssd and use hdd for video games and media. All the money saved you could have spent on a better gpu.

    That part about AI is BS. Compute shaders can be used to handle the processing load for the kind of computing requirements you'd have for AI in games. The training part has to take place when there slow segments or the player is taking a break.

    I know so many people who bought expensive hardware for workflows that didn't require it. Though to be fair, I've also been guilty of this many times, especially when it came to the GPU' and CPU's that I've chosen. Thankfully, AMD has changed the game by providing extremely powerful workstation class hardware at practically half the price, as was very clear when I built my last Workstation. I really wanted an Intel Xeon CPU with the highest core count, but their 28 core version costed over $9,000, so I went AMD and bought the 32 Core 2990WX, which amazingly was 3/4's the cost of the slower Xeon with less cores. Along with the CPU I paired it with a Gigabyte TRX40 Aorus Xtreme, 256GB of G.Skill DDR4-3600 from their Octo-Kit. Storage is a Infinity . Though a very expensive system, it was still a fraction of what it would have cost me if I had purchased the Xeon and Nvidia 8000 RTX GPU I originally wanted. Because of this decision I got a computer that is not only extremely powerful but is still upgradeable to not only more powerful CPU's but the next generation of powerful CPU's. Where as if Intel came out with a new Xeon 48 or 64 core Xeon, a new motherboard would most likely need to be purchased as well. Also though my two Radeon VII Pro's aren't the fastest GPU's on the market, their combined memory and performance do out perform a single Nvidia 8000 RTX that costs more than twice as much. Not just that but everything I throw at them is just gobbled up with an attitude, truly awesome and affordable workstation class cards. FYI, my firm buys a lot of servers direct from Gigabyte as such I get heavily discounted parts. The 8TB SSD drive isn't mine either, it actually belongs to my firm, though it's one of the backup units so I asked if I could use it. Since we rarely have to replace a broken part our IT Locker, where this stuff is stored, is basically my play ground. Another example, I've had an AMD Instinct 150M compute card in my rig for the last 2 months that I'm using as a render card.
