Do I need to resize my image?

Thanks to 21 here on the forum everything is ordered (link/photo above!)! I am just waiting on 1 monitor to arrive, and nice keyboards to come back in stock. I am building 3 PC's one for my daughter, one for my hubby and one for myself. The ones we have are so old and I have not built a pc since around '99 or so!

That said, going to do some research on my MOBOs and such but if you have any favorite links to articles or videos, please post away!! Or if y9ou have any suggestions or tidbits or anything that you can think of off hand that may be helpful, let me know!

Thanks again 21- we are super excited!

Hardware Unboxed(Techspot for their written articles) do some really good, proper testing. GamersNexus also do some great, critical testing. Both good places to get information from IMO.
That GamersNexus video I linked is just Buildzoid talking about why each mobo is good, and Buildzoid is pretty much THE motherboard guy lol. A thumbs up from him is as good as it gets IMO.
The reason I'd always take the X570 TUF over the Gigabyte board, is that Asus' BIOS is just better.

Glad to hear it Hope all goes well, and the systems match your expectations.


Once you get the systems all built, feel free to post any pics over here;
