Community Article AMD RX 6700 XT Build Guide — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › PC Build Guides AMD RX 6700 XT Build Guide SeanM admin March 17 edited March 29 in PC Build Guides Picking up one of the new AMD RX 6700 XT cards, but don’t know what type of computer you want to build around it? We’ve put together two builds, an AMD and an Intel build, to make the most of the RX 6700 XT. AMD-based AMD RX 6700 XT Build If you’re building with an AMD graphics card, pairing it with a recent AMD processor will give your rig an extra bit of power. With that in mind, we’ve put together a parts list for a mid-range powerhouse with just a bit of color to make it pop. Processor: Ryzen 5 5600X Vermeer The Ryzen 5600X is the perfect sweet spot of power and price. It offers enough oomph that gamers will rarely notice a slowdown but also doesn’t break the bank. Plus, it comes with an AMD Wraith Stealth Cooler, a pack-in so good, you probably won’t need an aftermarket cooler. Alternate: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - More expensive, more powerful! Motherboard: MSI X570 MPG Gaming Plus AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard The MSI X570 offers a solid mid-range board, forgoing bells and whistles for a simple plug-and-play motherboard that will do exactly what you need it to do, making it a great compliment to the Ryzen 5 5600X in a budget build. Alternate: ASUS B550-f ROG Strix Gaming - A bit more expensive, but comes with on-board WiFi and some additional settings to make it uniquely yours. Graphics Card: Sapphire Technology AMD Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT Obviously, we'll be using the brand new Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT as the centerpiece of the build, and we've got a ton of reasons why - check out our RX 6700 XT discussion thread and breakdown post! RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 What’s a gaming build without some flash, though? The G.Skill Trident Z offers DDR4-3200 speeds and 16GB should be enough to handle anything you throw at it. Plus, you can make it glow red, and we all know that red lighting means it’s faster. Alternate: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 - Same brand, similar RAM, but no RGB and a bit cheaper. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM SATA III (For everything else) I can’t recommend putting your OS on an old-school HDD. They’re far too slow when compared to M.2 drives. But, M.2 drives are expensive. The compromise is to pick up a smaller M.2 like the WD Black SN 750 for your OS and a few other necessities and save some money with a cheaper HDD like the WD Blue 1TB for everything else. Alternative: Samsung 870 QVO 2TB SSD - The other middle ground is a big SSD. Still quick, but more expensive. Just not M.2 expensive.   Power Supply: EVGA 750 BQ 750 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply As my alternate non-modular choice would suggest, you can go a bit cheaper by forgoing any modular element to your power supply, but if you have the extra budge and want to keep your case looking as clean as possible, definitely spring for something like the EVGA 750 BQ that’s at least semi-modular. Alternate: Thermaltake Smart Series 750 Watt 80 Plus ATX Non-Modular Power Supply - All the power, none of the modularity. It’ll save you some money, but make cable management a bit harder. Case: Lian Li Lancool II Mesh RGB Full Tower When it comes to cases, it mostly comes down to style - as long as all your components will fit. The Lian Li Lancool II offers a sleek, fairly minimal style with RGB fans up front and tempered glass side panels. Alternate: Thermaltake H200 RGB Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower (Or any case that strikes your fancy and will fit your parts) - Again, a lot of case decisions come down to personal preference. Check out our case offerings and pick the one in your budget that speaks to you! The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=0ab38820-7c81-4411-9663-c9965c3c7253 Intel-Based RX 6700 XT Build  For our Intel build, we’re building a sleeper machine, designed to look unsuspecting but still have a ton of power and speed without breaking the bank. Processor: Intel Core i5-10400 Comet Lake The Intel i5-10400 offers the best bang for your buck. It’ll get you everything you need to game, but doesn’t overdo it in price or power. It does come with a pack-in cooler that'll do the job, but we have a suggestion for something that'll do it better in a bit. Alternative: Intel Core i7-10700K Comet Lake - Costs more, but gives some extra kick and overclocking capabilities Motherboard: ASUS Z490 Prime Intel LGA 1200 ATX Much like the MSI X570 in the AMD build, the Z490 Prime provides a solid compromise between price and power, a solid plug-and-play motherboard without much to fiddle with. Just good performance at a good price. Alternative: MSI Z490 MPG Gaming Plus Intel LGA 1200 ATX - Why not add a burst of RGB color to your motherboard? Graphics Card: Sapphire Technology AMD Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT Just like the AMD build, we'll be using the new AMD Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT. If you're looking for more information on the card, check out our RX 6700 XT discussion thread and breakdown post! RAM: Crucial Ballistix 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Keeping with the low-profile theme, we’ve got some simple black RAM that’ll blend in with the build but still deliver on speed and then some. It’s minimal, it's chic, it’ll look good in your case, and it’ll deliver the performance you want. What’s not to love? Alternative: Crucial Ballistix Gaming RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 White - Don’t just add RGB, make a splash in your case with white RGB RAM and make sure it stands out. Hard Drives: Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe (For OS & Essentials) and Samsung 870 EVO 1TB SSD 2.5” (For everything else) If we’re building a subtle powerhouse, we’re keeping the memory small and fast. A 1TB M.2 NVMe from Samsung will give you more than enough room for your OS and a good chunk of your Steam library. Add on another 1TB SSD from Samsung for your Epic Game Store library, and you’re booting into Cyberpunk 2077 in record time. Alternative: WD Blue Mainstream 4TB 5400RPM SATA III - If you’re looking for a bit more room, stick with the M.2 as your main drive but supplement it with this hearty HDD with three more terabytes instead of a second SSD. Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 GT 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply If you want to immediately throw off the vibe of your new build, leave cables strewn about the case. If you want to keep it looking nice and clean, spring for the modular power supply and only use the cables you actually need. Keep the rest in the box, not your case. Alternative: Corsair CX650M 650 Watt 80 Plus Bronze ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply - save some money and spring for a semi-modular. Not as customizable, but it’ll still look clean. Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Case Let the build do the talking: no RGB, no flash. Just a sleek, tempered glass case showing off your internal components. Let the world know you mean business by not saying anything at all. Alternative: Thermaltake Versa J24 RGB Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Case - Say everything with RGB everywhere! Optional: CPU Cooler: Corsair iCUE H100i RGB Pro XT 240MM Water Cooling Kit Sure, the Intel i5-10400 comes with a stock cooler that’s fine, but if we’re going to really impress with this build and keep CPU temps down, it’s worth springing for an aftermarket cooler. And nothing cools better than a water cooler.

Leave them in the comments! Or, if you build either of these, we want to see them over on our Build Showcase! If you're looking for more information on the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, we've published our (very positive) benchmarks, put together a FAQ and discussion post, as well as a card breakdown. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Most often we seem to receive shipments on the weekdays. I'm unable to promise when we'll be receiving any new shipments or offer when to expect a shipment will be delivered, but it seems that most have success going in the morning before we open. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

It provides a host of improvements and options to better your gaming experience. New updates to Radeon Boost to take advantage of variable-rate shading support found on the Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs Expanded support for Radeon Anti-Lag that now includes DirectX® 12 based games Day-0 updates with performance optimizations for brand-new games Robust GPU performance tuning and on-screen metrics, including a new stress-test feature Game recording and streaming to services like Twitch and YouTube The AMD Link app for streaming your games to mobile devices and TVs Game enhancements like Radeon Image Sharpening Of course, these software improvements benefit all of the RX 6000 series GPUs, but it will be most interesting to see how these improvements affect the performance of this new middle-high tier GPU. What are you most looking forward to with this new GPU? We're expecting to have this heavily anticipated item in stock on its release, and we know that you'll have some questions. We've included some of the FAQs we've received with other similar launches below!   Visit and join our Micro Center Community site for more information, conversation and support regarding this and many other exciting products and and topics!   Q. Will you have the RX 6700 XT cards on the release dates? A. Yes, we will have a variety of top brand RX 6700 XT cards available on the launch date. Supplies are extremely limited and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.   Q. Are you doing pre-orders? A. At this time, we will not be offering pre-orders.   Q. Will I be able to reserve or buy them online? A. We will not be offering reservations for in-store pick-up or shipping for these video cards due to the high demand.   Q. Will Micro Center open early on the release date? A. Store opening time will be determined by Time Zone. Pacific Time Zone (Tustin) Will open at 7AM Pacific: Mountain Time Zone (Denver) will open at 8AM Mountain; Central Time Zone will open at 9AM Central; and Eastern Time Zone will open at 9AM Eastern.   Q. Which RX 6000 graphics cards will be available? A. We will have RX 6000 series graphics cards from our top vendors: Asrock, Asus, Powercolor, Sapphire, and MSI, including gaming and overclocked models. These will vary from store to store. Available models will be listed in the graphics cards category at launch.   Q. How many will you have in stock? A. We're expecting limited quantities for the RX 6700XT launch on Thursday, March 18th. We are working hard to get more cards in as quickly as possible. We know you are all as excited as we are for this launch and ask that, as lines form outside of our stores, everyone shop safely and practice social distancing.   Q. When will you be receiving more stock after the launch day? A. We don't have an expected day to receive our next shipment. However, we do typically receive shipments throughout the week. Most often, we receive shipments in the morning before our stores open, and we make them available as soon as we have them.   Q. How much will the 6000 Series video cards cost? A. Up-to-date pricing for our cards will be posted on the website once they're available.   Q. Can I buy more than one?  A. We will be limiting purchases at this time to one per household. With limited availability, we want all of our customers to have a chance to be a part of this new product release.   Q. How do I get one of these products? A. These items are only available in-store and are only available on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to its high demand, this item typically sells out within minutes of hitting our shelves. A voucher will be required to purchase a limited availability item.   Q. Will you be issuing vouchers for this launch? A. On occasion, Micro Center will issue vouchers for items with limited availability, such as graphic cards, processors, game consoles, etc. Most recently, COVID-19 has caused issues with the production and distribution of these high-demand products for an unknown length of time. This demand and limited availability have created lines outside Micro Center stores most mornings before they open. We use vouchers to increase fairness and promote a safe, socially distanced shopping experience to our customers while shopping for products with limited product/availability. For more information about how vouchers are issued and what to expect at our store, please see our Limited Availability Product Launch FAQ. https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/7909/limited-availability-product-launch-faq If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask by leaving a comment below! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Comments jshield13 ✭ March 16 Has the storm affected Denver Micro center Stock? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 16 Hey @jshield13 just chiming in. If you are wandering if the Denver store is open. yes the store is open. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 17 Hello @jshield13 I haven't heard anything about the storm impacting our Denver location at this time. As of yesterday afternoon when the article was posted, we are expecting to have stock in each of our stores! If that changes, I'm sure we'll update you here and on our website! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook PXHTX ✭ March 17 edited March 17 Why hasnt microcenter gone to a sign up email/sheet style first-come, first-serve basis for GPUs and other limited stock components? A simple sign-up sheet going down the list and gives everyone the same opportunity to sign up and be notified when an item that they have selected comes in stock. Give people like 24hours to pick up the item or it goes to the next person on the list. That way, people arent lining up outside of microcenters across the country, HOPING that one of their cards MIGHT be in stock that day. Sometimes for over 12-16hours. Thats crazy. Also could keep the scalpers at bay by only allowing one sign up per person per X number of days. Better than this vague might have cards that day stuff. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook i24 ✭ March 17 lets be honest, what time you guys showing up at the show? im skipping work but trying to catch up on sleep ;)😁 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSKyleH admin March 18 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/29652#Comment_29652 Hello @PXHTX I certainly understand your concerns, we do limit purchases to one per person using our voucher system. We require photo ID to verify names, and offer only one voucher in 30 day period. The question can be found on our limited availability FAQ Q. Can I get more than one voucher? A. Vouchers are only used for limited-quantity items, which are limited to 1 Per Household. You would only be able to receive one voucher per 30-day period with an accompanying driver’s license or state I.D. With limited availability, we want all of our customers to have a chance to be a part of this new product release. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Kaneki ✭ March 18 6 people in mayfield heights. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tomaselmas ✭ March 18 Hi any updates on stock for the Micro Center in Houston Texas? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook GuyWylie ✭ March 18 25-30 in line at the Cambridge MA store.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Juli ✭ March 18 40+ In line Columbus Ohio  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Azzyung ✭ March 18 40+ st davids 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tomaselmas ✭ March 18 80+ Houston Texas 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook WatterHazard ✭ March 18 How many people outside Mayfield Heights? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 @WatterHazard I'd hope there a very few at this time, since the store has been open since 9am, I'd expect the majority of customers who may have been in line to have been assisted at this time! Since I'm not in the store, I'm only speculating. It would still be great to have someone from Mayfield check-in :) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Azzyung ✭ March 18 @LandShark Can people buy those cards if they are still in stock? like regular customers? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook prongles ✭ March 18 ok so im pissed off because people are literally putting tents and nobody even has a CHANCE to get the gpu 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 edited March 18 @Azzyung Yes, if there are still cards in stock, you would enter the line for GPUs and be given a voucher to be able to purchase a GPU. However, as I mentioned in my previous post, my current understanding is that many customers lined up early this morning and waited for the store to open and the vouchers to be handed out. I believe that we are currently sold out of all the stock that we had received. @prongles Sorry to hear that you feel that way, I'm told that we received around 75 cards at each of our stores, so many people were able to get a GPU this morning. I've heard from other news sites and reviewers that AMD is supposed to be getting frequent shipments of these new cards out over the coming weeks. With all recent GPU releases, the demand has been extremely high and the supply isn't yet able to keep up. We're continuing to do our best with getting more GPUs in stock and we appreciate your patience and understanding while we do so. 😊 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TimothyPE ✭ March 18 If you need an GPU to play games, wait until this bitcoin mining thing to stop, otherwise there is a better solution than camping online and offline everyday, which is Get a PS5 or Xbox X from Microcenter... 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook prongles ✭ March 18 some people didnt sleep and didnt get the gpu 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook steelaw ✭ March 18 You have a chance if you camp out overnight.i camped out 15 hrs to get a 3080 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook terryduryee ✭ March 18 I have been on the website refreshing my screen like every 10 seconds since 9 am est and did not see anything become available at all.

The RX 6700 XT is a limited availability item and would only be available for purchase in-store. These items are not available for reservation.

Campers and scalpers. They are already showing up in Facebook Market place at inflated prices. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 @terryduryee No apology necessary! Sorry if I came across as rude! Definitely wasn't my intention! We did list these cards on the website, however, since one of the major updates happens at 10am and today for this launch we opened at 9. because of this and the other reasons listed in our Limited Availability FAQ the cards were already sold out by that time. If you're interested in purchasing a new GPU, you'll have to head to the store as these are not available for purchase online through us. From what I've been told, we don't expect to offer reservations for limited availability items until they are more readily available. That time frame will vary from item to item but right now, I don't have a way to give you an ETA for that. Demand for these items is still incredibly higher than the production. We're working as hard as we can with our partners and continuing to do our best to get more GPUs in stock as quickly as we can. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 @EddyJ We are continuing to limit the purchase of these limited items. Q. Can I get more than one voucher? A. Vouchers are only used for limited-quantity items, which are limited to 1 Per Household. You would only be able to receive one voucher per 30-day period with an accompanying driver’s license or state I.D. With limited availability, we want all of our customers to have a chance to be a part of this new product release. Also, I can verify that as an employee, we aren't able to purchase these cards. Q. Are associates able to make purchases of high demand products? A. As with many high-demand products at launch, employees are restricted from making purchases so we can get new products into the hands of our loyal customers. Once the restricted period is over, any associates wishing to purchase a high demand product will have to follow the same procedures that our customers follow. We do not allow the sale of these products outside of store hours, nor do we allow any holds for these items.  @Ozark81 It's impressive to see and hear about people camping out. It makes me miss the times when friends and I used to pull all-nighters waiting outside the store for the latest game release, just to get an extra poster or some in-game items. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook EddyJ ✭ March 18 @LandShark No worries you guys already pissed me off 2 months ago when the Desktop i purchased online upon driving 2 hours to the store was then mysteriously no where to be found but they sure as hell didn't hesitate to push another one on me. Already wasted 12 hours drive time looking for a card to go in these desktop i bought as it's 4 hours round trip not doing it anymore. I'll just try to become a distributer partner so i can get a single damn GPU since no retailer has any clue how resolve the scalping, and backdoor side deal issues. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

AMD is positioning the 6700 XT as the cutting edge GPU for 1440p gaming, stating that it delivers “ultra-high frame rates and maximum 1440p gaming.” In this overview, we’ll take a look to see how the 6700 XT performs in some in-game benchmarks. If you’re curious to see how your system stacks up against the 6700 XT, you can run these benchmarks at home. Specifications The 6700 XT lists some very impressive specifications that set the stage for it to shine brightly, especially over the previous generation’s specs.  AMD's RDNA 2 architecture continues to deliver significant improvements in performance over the previous generation, and we’re glad to see it across the entire 6000 series lineup. Specifically for the 6700 XT, the higher clock speeds and four additional gigs of VRAM, for a total of 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM, are the standout improvements. While the additional VRAM may not be required, it’s great to have. This allows for some future-proofing with games and other software that may require additional resources. At this time, all the games that we tested did not need this much memory, and at 1440p, this matches our expectations, but it’s still good to have the headroom.  Benchmarks The AMD RX 6700 XT benchmarks are promising, and AMD came through and achieved their goal of 1440p gaming at maximum settings. In the games that we tested, we saw a very playable experience at 1440p, and the 6700 XT even offers a playable 4K gaming experience in some titles. In our benchmarking, we set every possible setting to the maximum to thoroughly test this card's capabilities.  Our test bench was a base Maingear Vybe 2, which includes a Ryzen 9 3900X, 32GB of 3200Mhz RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD, and we swapped out the GPU with an RX 6700 XT. Our tests specifically use a PowerColor RX 6700 XT Red Devil.  We are using a pre-release driver for this GPU; because of this, some results may vary over time, but you'll typically see better results as the drivers continue to mature. It should also be mentioned that we are using DirectX 11 for these benchmarks as that is the API that the majority of players will use when playing these games. Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 10.9ms | 1440p; 14.9ms | 4K; 27.9ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.97ms | 1440p; 7.67ms | 4K; 11.15ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 11.4ms | 1440p; 14.2ms | 4K; 19.7ms Note: The consistent 1% low FPS across resolutions is likely caused by an engine bottleneck or caused in the scene transitions during the benchmark.  Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 11.2ms | 1440p; 14.3ms | 4K; 25.1ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 3.1ms | 1440p; 4.7ms | 4K; 10.2ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 12.0ms | 1440p; 18.6ms | 4K; 38.6ms Overview All in all, the RX 6700 XT offers a great experience at 1440p, as AMD has promised, and in some titles even provides a very playable experience at 4K. However, you may have to reduce some settings to stay consistently above 60 FPS. We were thoroughly impressed with the way that this card handled the games that we benchmarked here. If you’re looking to play games at 1440p, the RX 6700 XT might be your answer.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

The new RX 6700 XT has its sights set on delivering the best 1440p performance on the market and, with help from AMD’s game-boosting programs, it just might. Featuring 12GB of high-speed GDDR6 VRAM, AMD RDNA 2 Gaming Architecture for Ray Tracing, AMD Infinity Cache, and AMD Smart Access Memory, the RX 6700 XT is a mid-range powerhouse. And, of course, the RX 6700 XT has access to AMD’s suite of gaming enhancements, including AMD Radeon Anti-Lag, decreasing the amount of time between input and action, and AMD Radeon Boost, which delivers up to a 27% performance increase while gaming. What that all means: 1440p Gaming: 1440p gaming is, essentially, the mid-point between 1080p, the HD standard, and 4k. 1440p delivers high-quality visuals without breaking the bank. The RX 6700 XT offers top-of-the-line 1440p visuals for the mid-range price. 12GB High-Speed GDDR6 VRAM: VRAM, or video RAM, is memory dedicated to running computer graphics. 12GB of High-Speed GDDR6 VRAM means that there’s more than enough blazing-fast memory to render stunning 1440p graphics. AMD RDNA 2 Gaming Architecture: With the rise in Ray Tracing, a new graphic tool that adds realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections, AMD developed the RDNA 2 Gaming Architecture, designed to get the most out of Ray Tracing technology. AMD Smart Access Memory: When the RX 6700 XT is paired with a 5000 Series (and select 3000 Series AMD processors, the processors can make use of the RX 6700 XT’s 12GB GDDR6 RAM to boost performance up to 16%. AMD Infinity Cache: AMD added a 96MB last-level data cache to the RX 6700 XT’s GPU chip, allowing for up to 2.5x higher bandwidth. In other words: even more gaming performance.

As with previous launches, I would assume we will have some, but I can't speak to the amount and if previous launches are any example of an upcoming launch, there will be a greater demand than what we receive in inventory. Hopefully, I am proved wrong, but I would still recommend visiting your local store beforehand to speak with associates to see how they are handling launches. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Unfortunately for the GPUs its 1 per household (address). So even though there are 2 people at an address, only 1 card per address (household),, sorry. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook davrob01 ✭ March 20 edited March 20 When will the next batch of rx 6700 be released and will you guys make a post about it in the announcement section? Will you do the same thing for other high demand GPUs? I just need to know when I need to camp out. I missed this one. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin March 20 Hello @davrob01 Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community! After the release launch for Graphics Cards alongside other Limited Availability items, our stores will receive shipments of these items over time rather than doing another large Batch Release. Since there isn't a big batch release, there will be no announcements for these, it would just be a Limited Availability Item meaning it is First Come First Serve. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook davrob01 ✭ March 21 edited March 21 @TSPhillipT Thanks. I have a silly follow-up question, so if I were to show up at the Chicago store at open every day for the next 6 months, is there a chance that one day, I would be able to buy one of the AMD 6000 video cards (or Nvidia's 3000 series)? Would that be a good strategy? How often do you guys get these shipments, and is Monday the best day or is it random? Oh, also, if I called the night before, would someone be able to inform me if you guys are expecting a shipment? Or is it random? I guess I could make riding my bike to the store every day part of my morning routine. I do live nearby. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 21 edited March 25 @davrob01 just chiming in. There no guarantee, but if you showed up to the store before it opens every day, there may be a chance you'll get one of those cards. If you call the night before the store won't share if a shipment is coming in or not. They only share the day off. Best bet is to show up at the store before it opens to get into the store to see what gpu stock they have. If no gpu in stock, the store will let you know if a truck coming that day. Hang out in the store until it comes or they may call you when the truck comes. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

I would like to use it to game. Specifically 4k gaming. I would like to use Microsoft Flight Simulator as a benchmark since it is the most demanding title that has me interested in PC gaming. I already purchased a Sapphire Technology AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Pulse Dual-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card from MC and that's the only item that I have for this build. I am open to suggestions on any parts other than the GPU. I'm looking to build this system in the next week or so depending on part availability in my area. I have done a lot of research on my own and tried to go to multiple sources and the PC Builder list below are the items that I thought looked like the best quality/price combo. I do not care at all about aesthetics, I only care about it running as well as it can and the parts being compatible to maximize each parts life span. I'd really like to keep the total of the build (minus the GPU) under $2k US. Any advice you can give a newbie would be greatly appreciated. In a perfect world, I buy all the parts from MC then put it together myself but if I have to get some assistance from the fine folks at MC then that is fine too. Thank you again for any advice you have. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=93b71907-36e3-4081-aa4e-d8484fd43a62 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin March 23 edited March 23 Hello @Gkirk21 and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. The build looks good. I would advise to add in desktop speakers or a monitor that has built in speakers to your build. I do not believe the LG 27UL500-W 27" has built- in speakers. So for audio or sound you'll need desktop computer speakers or a monitor that has built in speakers. Also the 1000s PSU (Corsair RMX) may be overkill for your pc build, but your system will only use the wattage is needs from the 1,000 watt PSU. This build should never need 1000 watts. You could go with a 650-700 watt PSU and it could be cheaper than the Corsair. But you could stick with the 1000 watt PSU as it won't harm your build. Everything else looks good to me. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Gkirk21 ✭ March 23 @TSTDavey Thank you!

We can assist you with a recommendation. What's the intended use of your PC? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook saphalline ✭ April 23 10 years old puts your current PC at - what? A Sandy Bridge CPU? i7 2600? Please tell me it is not an FX-4100! 🤣 My goodness, your current PC is limiting your GPU at this point! At that age, a $2K replacement budget is honestly overkill. A simple i5 10400/11400 would be plenty. A Ryzen 5 5600X would decimate your current CPU! I recommend halving your budget down to $1K and aiming for simplicity here. You already have a GPU, so even a $1K budget is plenty for replacing a 10 year old platform. You can even go all-out with the extra $1K and also replace your mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers, EVERYTHING! Heck - get a new gaming chair! 😎 If you are not up-to-date on all the latest PC advancements over the past 10 years, then... uhh... let's see... Minimum 6-core CPU for a gaming PC in your budget and to pair with that GPU. Like I said, Intel Core i5 10400/11400 minimum, or Ryzen 5 5600X, or an i7 10700 (8-core), etc. All good starting points for your budget. Minimum 16 GB RAM kit (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200. Ryzen likes even faster RAM, say DDR4-3600 or so. Nice case with good airflow, preferably mesh in the front, IMHO. Most of the good ones in the $80-120 range include a tempered glass side panel, and many also include RGB (fancy colored lights) fans. 650-750W PSU. 80 PLUS Bronze certified at minimum (Silver, Gold, Platinum are extra). More power might be necessary if you want a CPU with 10 cores or more (and given your GPU power requirements). Storage has undergone huge changes over the years. Standard these days are M.2 SSDs (solid state drives that are about the same size & shape as a stick of gum) that come in both SATA and NVMe flavors. NVMe is way better but slightly more expensive. Expect to pay ~$120-150 for a 1 TB NVMe M.2 SSD. Definitely worth it, IMHO. 3.5" SATA hard drives are purely for storage these days, and this type of storage is dirt cheap. Expect to pay <$100 for 4 TB. CPU cooling is very fun in 2021. You got your stock coolers that come with most CPUs, and your 3rd-party air coolers that are big & beefy and have 4 to 6 heatpipes in 'em. You also got your closed-loop liquid coolers with radiators & fans of various sizes, from 120mm (single 120mm fan) up to 280mm (2 x 140mm fans) and 360mm (3 x 120mm fans) and larger! These can get expensive but are definitely worth it for high-end CPUs. Motherboards... oh boy, motherboards... If you have not seen or held a new motherboard in 10 years, you may be overwhelmed by what is available these days, but the basics are the same. Some boards are "regular" and provide plenty of non OC'ing gaming performance (<$100), some have more bells & whistles and can OC just fine (<$200), and some are extravagant and borderline overkill and can cost $400+. I recommend focusing on features like form factor, OC'ing potential, built-in WiFi or not, multiple M.2 slots - things you can actually use. I find boards around the $200 mark to be more than enough, but YMMV. Mini-ITX - This is a uniquely small form factor (originally created by VIA, not many people remember that) that allows full gaming PCs to fit into really tiny spaces. Very neato and still quite expensive, unfortunately, but worth a look to see if it interests you. You certainly have the budget for it. USB. It may sound silly, but advancements in USB over the past 10 years are worthy of mention. USB-C ports are still very much in demand on cases and motherboards for "devices of the future" and the bandwidth for USB 3-class blue ports continues to advance. However, USB 3.0 is no more. The USB Implementers Forum, in their greatly stupid wisdom, decided to re-spec it all into: USB 3.2 Gen 1x1, USB 3.2 Gen 2x1, and USB 3.2 Gen 2x2. Yep, greeeeeeat idea. In any case, USB 3-class ports and devices are insanely fast compared to USB 2.0 and are much more plentiful these days. Grab a modern USB flash drive and see for yourself! Last but not least, RGB. I mentioned it briefly above, but this "fancy colored lights" technology has really taken hold in the PC realm. RGB fans are VERY common these days. AMD even has stock CPU coolers with RGB! RAM has RGB on it, motherboards have RGB on them, keyboards & mice have RGB, your new RX 6700 XT might have RGB on it - RGB is everywhere! You can opt out of RGB if you wish (also known as "dark" these days 😋) but I like having it because you can almost always turn it off at any time using the various RGB software apps or dongles/controllers and it's really cool inside a case with a glass side panel. You can also use RGB to make all your PC components pulse with the same colors or react to game/music audio or just cycle through the colors of the rainbow in sync. It's possible to spend $1K just on RGB! But it's also possible to just grab a case with a tempered glass side panel and a couple included RGB fans and plug them into your motherboard to enjoy a cheap light show. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DevinsucksatPCs ✭ May 15 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/31200#Comment_31200 hardcore gaming, im so sorry for the delay in response i didnt think my note would go through.

If they do allow it, In case anything happens, I'm willing to pay for the recommended case. issue is, my current case is pretty big and has lots of breathing room. (its as big as my torso and up to my head in height) I would like to keep my current external SSD and Hard drives if possible ( due to excessive amounts of stuff i have on them). May I ask just out of curiosity why we are getting a 750 watt over 650 watt battery by the way? I was told that more watts isn't necessarily always a good thing.

You can go air cooler if you wanted to. Yes, you can bring in an existing case and video card in to service. You can transfer over drives. You would need to re-install Windows and most programs. 750W is to support the video card's requirements. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DevinsucksatPCs ✭ May 18 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/32391#Comment_32391 Ok i think im good then Im probably gonna aim for a bigger tower, but outside that, im gonna use the list you gave me buy everything outside of a new drive 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin May 18 Sounds good!

By time 0930 hit was about 40 in line. Guy came out and said they only had two cards on the shelf, both AMD. 38 very upset folks walked away. Fool as I am, going to try again on Monday. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LookingGPU ✭ April 2 The MicroCenter website states it takes 10 min for their system to update when an item is sold. I would imagine when they receive a product it is scanned in once received to update their system. I have been checking the inventory everyday for GPU's. Last night around midnight I checked the website to see if they had gotten any GPU's in stock. Nothing new. This morning I checked and the website stated they had a limited quantity of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. It is currently 1:08pm and their website still shows they have a limited quantity of this GPU. I also just went to the store 40 min ago. The General Manager told me they didn't have any and couldn't give me an explanation as to why they don't have on stock what their site says they have. Now, granted they may have people standing in line waiting to purchase the remaining quantity. However, this is an item that a store employee has to get out of a locked case and then takes to another locked case in order for a customer to purchase this item. When you walk out the store you can see the locked cage where any item waiting to be purchased is stored for customers standing in line waiting to purchase these items and surprise, surprise...no GPU's waiting to be purchased! So, either their system doesn't update like the website says it does, or people there don't know what they are doing. I keep scratching my head wondering how a computer store can't seem to get their act together and update their system so that it shows how much product is actually on hand!? A computer store! Does anyone see the irony in this?! Very frustrating and upsetting. Get it together MicroCenter. You sell the latest hardware and software in computers. Surely you can implement a program to run your inventory that is more efficient than what you currently have. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I'd be happy to make some recommendations, but first a question! What kind of budget did you have in mind for this build? As far as compatibility goes, I'm not seeing any issues with the parts that you have selected here. The only thing that I might be concerned with is the motherboard that you've selected. While the 3900X is compatible with the B450, I'd have to recommend going with the B550 or greater here. With the higher-tier motherboard, you're getting additional stability and a chipset that was designed for the CPU. The VRMs on the B550 or X570 would be better equipped to handle the 3900X. I also noticed that you chose a 2.5" SSD for your board, I'd recommend an NVMe drive if possible. Since you mentioned that you'll be using the build for editing, I think that the additional speeds you'll see from an NVMe drive will be a nice improvement. Hope this helps, but let me know if you have any questions for me! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Kevin08 ✭ March 28 looking around a 2,000 dollar budget maybe even up to 2,500 thank you for the recomandation I will begin to look into what you suggested. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Joopacshalom ✭ June 4 edited June 5 in General Discussion 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMichaelB admin June 4 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/8654/more-scalpers-what-is-microcenter-doing-about-this We have preventative measures in-place that limit the number of purchases to a single person within a household within a 1 month period. This applies to every video card, meaning that if you buy an RTX 3070, you (or anyone in your household) cannot buy an RX 6700 within that same 30 day period. That said, we cannot (and should not) be in control over what customers do with their products once the product has left our stores. While I understand scalping is frustrating given the shortages we are dealing with, it is entirely up to the individual consumer to decide if they want to sell a product they've purchased. Know that we are continuing to improve our processes to get cards into the hands of gamers, but understand that it will never be perfect. We can't interview every customer and ask them what they intend to do with products they intend to purchase as frankly it's not our place to dictate how they use the products they are willing to pay for. We also have to balance the processes we put in-place to make sure we are not making things difficult on our legitimate customers in our attempts to crackdown on those looking to resell. We do take feedback into consideration so if anyone has ideas on how we can improve our processes, please take the time to share those ideas with us. I promise you it doesn't fall on deaf ears. The following is a personal opinion and may not reflect the views of Micro Center: On the subject of scalpers, their existence is a tricky situation in and of itself. They exist because a demand for them exists. If there was no profit in scalping, they wouldn't do it. This means people are buying their overpriced products and giving them a purpose to continue their endeavors. While I understand people have a desire to upgrade their components, the best way to deal with scalpers is to simply avoid purchasing from them in the first place. When supply eventually levels out, the cards they've purchased will not be worth what they are attempting to sell them for. If you are in need of a graphics card but can't find one available on the retail markets, check the used markets. Last generation models are not much slower than the current generation cards and modern thermal technologies & voltage curves have improved their lifespan considerably, even on the cards that have been mined on. Not to mention from an environmental perspective, it wouldn't hurt to reuse these cards if at all possible. It's not the greatest, but it's a stopgap measure that can help you get back to gaming until the industry gets out of this shortage. Lastly, take a look at the pre-built systems. Scalpers don't really like buying pre-builts as its much harder to flip the rest of the platform and space is definitely a limiting factor when you have a lot of full-tower systems around. Even if you don't need a platform upgrade and just want a GPU, check with friends & family to see if they want a platform upgrade and work out a deal with them to get the graphics card while they get the rest of the system as an upgrade. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Everything about this situation is ridiculous. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin May 12 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/32152#Comment_32152 This particular video and concerns like these were brought up to us back in April, and we have long since given them to Tustin store management. As far as I'm aware these concerns should have been addressed then, and I personally haven't seen any new complaints recently until this post. If this type of thing has started again recently, we can absolutely follow up with our Tustin store management about it. When was the last time you were at the store location? Can you confirm if anything has happened recently? https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/32169#Comment_32169 Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot. Sometimes managers are able to work with customers to accommodate them if they're in a situation where they need to replace the card, but until availability gets better, options are limited. You're always welcome to come in and speak with a manager to see if they're able to work with you. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Swashbuckler ✭ May 14 @Johnny5 >But you have to understand that this is about as diplomatic and fair as it possibly can be. it's a token effort and it's clearly isn't really working for anyone who isn't a dedicated chairborne camper. if they really wanted to stop scalpers they could just raffle the cards out like they used to do with hyped shoes at footlocker. give out tickets, take phone numbers, call the winners to pick up, then get video of these scalpers getting salty. >pay for a prebuilt true. you can buy a prebuilt from a certain major vendor with ryzen 5800+6800xt for the scalped price of one 3080/6800. if you do a little research you can get it even below sticker price (call to order, not website). 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Kadok ✭ May 15 A common misconception, even among knowledgeable policymakers and industry stakeholders, is that semiconductor manufacturing has gone the way of other electronics that are manufactured mostly overseas. This is false. In fact, U.S. semiconductor companies do the majority of their manufacturing in the United States, and semiconductors are one of America’s top manufactured exports, behind only aircraft and automobiles. chipmakers were stretched supplying computing and smartphone giants like Apple Inc. The U.S., which still leads the world in chip design, is seeking to encourage companies to build or expand advanced factories domestically to address what Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo called a supply chain “crisis” and a risk to national and economic security. Still there is no reason to allow those unscrupulous jerks to buy up all the gpu's and then scalp them at ridiculously high prices, there are laws against this and anyone caught doing so should be turned in, video cards selling in the thousands of dollars that should be 1/3 of that price is outrageous. I have been looking for a video card for 5 months, I can find them but I refuse to pay what those scalpers are charging. 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexanderK ✭ May 16 edited May 16 Last time i purchased graphic card @ MC in Feb 2021 (3070 with voucher).

I recently purchased all the parts to build my own PC, well except for the GPU obviously. I've read the Limited Availability process a few times now so I think I understand it fairly well, so I'm gonna give the camping a go and try my luck and hope for a shipment. My question is which products specifically are considered Limited Availability? Is it only graphics cards? The reason I ask is because I held off on buying a monitor until I could secure a graphics card, so I was checking the monitors with 144hz and 1440p and noticed they had the same "In store only, limit one per household" tag on the website. If I get lucky and secure a graphics card through the camping and voucher system, will I still be able to buy a monitor? Or is that limited availability and I need to wait 30 days? Will any of the other parts I purchased in store be considered limited availability and prevent me from getting a GPU? I would hate to go camp and have them be like "sorry you got a CPU two weeks ago, no GPU for you". Thanks in advance! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin May 17 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/32405#Comment_32405 This only applies to graphics cards and processors, it does not apply to monitors. You would be fine to purchase a GPU, CPU and monitor in one trip. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook KoBy ✭ May 18 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/32181#Comment_32181 I was there last week. I arrived at 5pm on Tuesday and 13 chairs were already there. I stayed there with friends for 4 days, buying a GPU on Friday. During my time there, out of 13 chairs left on the street, 4 occupants never returned in those 4 days. 1 person returned 27 hours after being gone, around Wednesday night, and was belligerent with other line occupants until he was forced away by the majority. Weed was smoked every night, with food and waste thrown into the bushes even attracting many rats which is definitely a huge health concern if rats are nesting on Microcenter premise. After leaving Friday morning, I saw the same 2 individuals with the same 2 chairs who were first in line proceed to line up again. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Shuhnay ✭ May 18 Here's an update on how my campout went at the Madison Heights location in MI. I apologize ahead of time for the long post, but I feel like the experiences do provide a lot of information for people who want to understand the process. If y'all think this post belongs in another thread just comment and lmk I'll post it in a more appropriate spot, I'm new to the community. I showed up to camp at about 8pm Monday night, and I was about 30-34th in line depending on the different recounts, empty chairs, etc. I was a little nervous, but I had really cool neighbors explain that the Tuesday truck has usually been pretty good and my chances were good to get a card. To not bore you with the details of sitting in a chair all night, I can say that my experience was pretty solid. I had really cool neighbors, everyone was mellow and understanding and we got on pretty well. People are very willing to let you go to the bathroom, or stretch your legs and the people around us had each others backs to catch some sleep. Weather was decent, low 50s was the coldest, so pack accordingly and bring snacks (but pick up your trash). The truck showed up while I was sleeping, sometime around 5am I'm guessing, and an associate came out around 7 with a list of what was on the truck (I'm sure someone on a discord has an actual list, and I have pictures of the list if theres a good spot to post the inventory if that's something folks would be interested in). All in all there was about 89 - 3070s, 3 -3090s, only 1 - 3060, and 31 - AMDs. around 8:15am associates began calling us up for vouchers, everyone picks up their trash and camp area and begins lining up to choose what is available on the list. By voucher time our line was around 90 strong, maybe a lil more, but normally the associates will cut off the line at where the list runs out to let you know you didn't make the cut so you don't wait around for vouchers, however, that didn't have to happen so everyone who camped got a card today if they wanted one that was available. At number 34 in line I chose one of the 3070 Ultra XC3s. When you get your voucher, they tell you to come back when they open and that the voucher is good until 11am. So around 8:30 we had freedom, go get food, go to the bathroom, go home if your lucky enough to be close, but most folks just hung locally and began lining up around 9:30 for store open to get in and get out. Overall, I had an absolute blast. The folks around you are in the same boat grinding out the sidewalk camp, and its a good group of people that also love PCs and gaming so the vibes were good. The associates are pleasant, and just doing their jobs. No one gets the inside scoop of if theres a truck, whats on the truck, "what are my odds of landing ______ specific card?". The truck sells out before the store even opens with the vouchers so it is hard for them to be sympathetic if you're trying to get one during regular hours or have a specific situation/reason as to why you cannot camp. As far as specifics, here was the buzz around the Madison Heights location, and again, this is all hearsay, but what some of the folks who have camped more than once have said is that usually the Tuesday shipment has been a pretty large shipment, and a lot of folks walk away with cards if they are willing to camp. They said there is also sometimes a decent Thursday shipment, but not as large as Tuesday. Again, this is not official or told to me by anyone at MC so take it with a grain of salt. I hope this helped at least someone, lmk if you guys have any specific questions! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Really_mad4q4 ✭ May 22 I was at microcenter last month and stood in line all night, the 3rd time I did this I received a voucher. I redeemed it went to pay for it but had an issue with my cc. I told the cashier I would be back in 10 mins with cash and she said ok. I got back from ATM in about 5 mins and saw a guy walking out with MY GPU!! I went into the store and sure enough the lady sold him my gpu! I was so mad I had to leave before I did something irrational! You would think that was it but no. On my way out I overhear the lady who gives out hand sanitizer and masks ask an associate if she could get a rtx 3080, his reply," sure, just write your name down here and when it comes in we will hold it for you.". What the hell..... I'm so upset that I was planning on not ever returning to a Mc ever again. I have bought over 20k worth of electronics from them in the past 12 months and easily more than 50k in the past 6 years. I can't believe they did this to me. I loved the store. I asked the manager why they did this and he said," calm down, I have some behind the counter" ,took me to the counter and proceeded to show me a stack of gpus. The problem was, I "won" a 3080, all he had was 3060s. I'm so conflicted. I literally love their store because I'm a maker, but being mistreated has put me off so much. Shame on that particular situation! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook davrob01 ✭ May 27 Hi everyone, will there be a launch day sale with a specific date for the NVidia 3080 TI ?

Items are shipped in periodically to each Micro Center location. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ May 31 This arrangement is big waste of time and gas and risks confrontations between aggressive types and regular folk. If the goal is to force customers to spend time at the stores, requiring a personal, in-store sign-up to queue for a card would save considerable time in line and gas for multiple trips. Since I don't think that there is much benefit in forcing multiple trips per week and I think that it's a bit silly, MC could satisfy its desire to drive traffic into the stores by requiring periodic personal appearances to 'renew' the queue reservation. I don't think that scalping will go away until the supply improves. Given the scale of the scalping enterprises and general under employment, I think that there is a ready supply of individuals who will stand in line all night for a relatively small fee. This will easily work around MC's attempt to restrict the number of purchases by an individual. While not a perfect cure, manufacturers could help by restricting warranty service to units that were purchased through an authorized dealer. There will still be some scalping activity because some users will be desperate for the latest card. Scalpers could provide a copy of the original receipt. This will show the original price, but the desperate user will accept the price difference as the cost of actually obtaining a card. For a user who needs the card for their own business, the scalper cost can be justified. The loss of business income due to using a less capable card or time wasted standing in line is part of that cost equation. Fortunately, I am not desperate and I will not waste my time in line. Probably the current front line generation of cards will be obsolete by the time that a card becomes available to me and I'll be purchasing a newer and more improved card. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BBGuy09 ✭ June 1 Now that we have an official 3080 Ti launch announcement from NVIDIA, will there be any further information/guidance regarding store-level procedures for the June 3rd launch day?

Also the question to why are price high right now is correct but Mirco Center forgot one thing.

I want something that would have more than enough horsepower to get the job done and would last for SEVERAL YEARS! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LordArcadius ✭ May 21 edited May 22 I built based on the idea of a reasonable, high-powered budget; with production and gaming performance in mind. RAM - 16GB of RAM is plenty for most modern processes and games, and the 3600mh, CL 16 kit is sufficiently fast for the Ryzen family of chips. 3600 speed also plays well with the 1800mh stable max for Ryzen's infinity fabric. It's easy enough to add another 16GB kit later on if you find you really need 32GB. CPU - The R7 5800x is a good balance between high performance and price. While I would love the afford the R9 CPU of the same family (and the R5 5600x is probably the better value) the extra 2 cores/4 threads of the R7 should be sufficient for anything short of really serious production tasks. Power Supply - Seasonic is very trustworthy, and the fact that they include a tester end cap with each unit allows you to easily see if your power supply is good before hooking up all of the essentials. 850 Watts might be a little overkill for something like the RX 6700, but the extra headroom is good for future upgrades. And the price difference between the 850W and the 750W makes the 850 a no-brainer. SSDs - I figured a smaller, faster drive for the OS and any other speed-critical apps (hence the 500GB 980 pro) and a slower, much bigger 2TB for games and other storage (WD Black) made way more sense than a single, high capacity drive. Motherboard - The Crosshair VIII Dark Hero is probably a bit overkill, and if I needed to bring the budget down I'd look for something in the $300 range (like an Aorus Master). But one of the $200 boards didn't seem right for a chip as powerful as the R7 5800x. Case - I like the Lancool II Mesh; I've built in this particular case before, and it was a pleasure to do so; so I figured it was a good choice again. And the case looks (and is) quite good as airflow-based cases go. CPU cooler - The Corsair H115i Elite is a decent enough AIO for the price, and since the case doesn't fit a 360 on the top, a 280 seemed to make the most sense. A good air cooler might be enough for non-overclocking use, but I really wasn't feeling any of the ones available through the parts picker. I figure it on the top (exhaust) with the front 3 fans and one more (hence the SP120) in the rear as intake. OS - Most folks don't need the added features 10 pro includes, so home (on a USB drive for easier install) is a no-brainer. Monitor - I'm perfectly content with 1080p for gaming, and found with my current laptop that 144hz is a good sweet spot between 120hz ones and 165/240/etc (probably only really helpful for professional gamers). LG generally makes good monitors, and the color accuracy on this one is very nice. I personally am happy with a 24-inch monitor (27 is a little too wide for my liking). https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=a072dff0-b221-4e8d-996e-58036c0c4b90 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook lymanamyl ✭ May 21 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=c052d65c-ff7c-418e-a5ab-4ceccb592a88 This is my build.

The case, CPU cooler, storage solution, and PSU are all as close as I could get with the current selection of parts to what I presently have in my rig. Though my RAM is slower, 2400Mhz, still a pair of 2x8GB kits though, and my PSU is a weird Corsair AX 850, still fully modular and all but supposedly for ""professional"" applications? Got it used for a good price so I don't much care but it's definitely not standard, and my boot drive (a 250 GB Samsung SATA SSD) is definitely not the same as the one listed for sale nowadays, and I couldn't find anything analogous to my 2TB Western Digital Black HDD I use for most games, so I just tossed in the Seagate. Things I would want to upgrade would be my CPU, Motherboard, and GPU. Presently I have a secondhand 9900k on an NZXT motherboard, but for the common video editing/rendering workloads I do on top of gaming, I would definitely not mind the bump up to a 5950x given how much of a beast it would be for all my current work applications, and I have a friend who can easily score me one for $600 + shipping. The motherboard is something I would not ordinarily spend so much money on, but due to the fact that AM4 seems like it's here to stay for another generation or two and I'll just be able to upgrade the Motherboard software to upgrade to a new chip, I feel it would be a good investment. Not to mention the fact that I could nick a Gigabyte X570 Xtreme or Master for well below MSRP off Ebay for basically new condition, box and all. I've seen Xtremes go for ~$600 and Masters in the $300s. GPU is a weird one for me, presently I run a pair of 1080Tis (which, again, I got for quite a good price, from the same person I bought my current CPU and Motherboard from) but I've been severely lusting after the Titan V for some time now due to its absolutely killer compute which has it pretty strongly in a class of its own even with Quadros a generation ahead of it, and given that I think it'd be absolutely perfect to edit, render and game with. Not to mention its pure weirdness, and being the only 'gaming' card on the Volta architecture, is quite the draw. Sure I could get a Titan RTX or a Quadro RTX (or even maybe one of the new Ampere ones) for a similar price tag, but it just wouldn't be the same. Not to mention I've gone without RTX this long, and I still really don't mind not having it for awhile longer. The fact that the Titan V isn't SLI capable doesn't bug me much either, given that I'm a bit over the whole dual-GPU thing after rocking the 1080 Tis for a little while and seeing the lackluster support and use on top of Nvidia's gradual pulling of the plug in recent years. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=70780cd2-5105-44e1-95b4-6bc6b7dcf306 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Jack22891 ✭ May 22 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-intel.aspx?load=583bf884-a83d-421c-a3ea-b26ab87bac08 I am going to explain my choices for this build. I went for a (mostly) white pc themed build because RGB looks better on white. Originally I was going to go with an Intel i9 10900K to pair with my two GPUs because haha, Team Red, Blue, and Green machine epic, but logically, a $120 price difference (including mobo choice) was not worth a roughly 3% boost in gaming compared to my pick of an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X. I went with a Gigabyte motherboard primarily match the brand with both GPUs. It has an OK IO selection, and I have not many things to connect with, so it's fine for me. Memory is pretty self-explanatory. 32GB of DDR4-3600 CL16 Trident Z Neo. Very good RAM modules. The case choice is one that I have been wanting for a while, the Cooler Master TD500 Mesh. Great Airflow with a mesh filter, why wouldn't I want it. The power supply may be a bit under par for the GPUs, but it was the only white PSU available at a high wattage. Asus ROG STRIX 850 Watt PSU has that white aesthetic I want, and as long as I don't push my GPUs to the limit, it all should be fine. 80+ Gold efficiency too. The GPU cards were picked to have a Red, Blue, Green team machine in mind, but with logical choice on the CPU pick, both GPUs can still serve very good purposes on their own, and if I wanted, could use them to run virtual machines. I chose a Samsung 980 Pro 2TB SSD as a boot drive for those fast boot times, a house for downloaded material, and for any games that would otherwise take a long time to load, like Gmod or GTA. A Seagate Skyhawk 8TB drive will house the huge game files. It can hold my Steam library, Epic Games library, Windows Store library. Noctua Cooler was chosen because, well, great performance, great sound level, and Windows 10 OS. Peripherals were chosen with the white theme in mind, so I went with Glorious PC Full-Size keyboard, and Model O mouse. an Asus ROG STRIX Sheath Pink XL mouse pad was also chosen for the white aesthetic Corsair Case Fans were also thrown onto the list because why not. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook retroracer ✭ May 22 i think I might blow my house up https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=60f32a8a-2509-44c1-aa5f-90774708bd02 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook VilainousKnight ✭ May 22 I designed this build specifically for people who might be over compensating for something or for these of you who just can't find any good core components in theses trying times. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=f2e0a504-f1c1-4920-9827-31814129503d 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Goul ✭ May 22 Here is a computer that bill gates wouldn't be able to afford, but the real parts are stuff I would love to have, all the monitors no one could use!

The 5700xt + 2600x would be the better combination because of the GPU difference. Also TheITDad said: I don't believe that the 5700xt will be bottle necked by the r5 2600.  Only place I can think of is if you get some more cpu intensive games and were running like ultra settings 1440p.  But I can't tell you for sure if you would get bottle necked by that cpu perhaps someone with more direct knowledge could tell you but I would be willing to bet you wouldn't. So resolution is actually a great equalizer for CPUs, because as resolution goes up you become more and more GPU bound. For many titles at 1080p Intel still enjoys some fairly solid gains over AMD in the gaming department, but at 1440p that difference is reduced quite a bit and at 4k they're practically identical for most titles. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

In case you missed it, you can watch AMD's keynote here: Here's what we know from today's keynote! It's all about Big Navi! While there was some discussion of the new Ryzen 5000 CPUs, the RDNA 2 architecture and it's improvements really took center stage here. RDNA 2 boasts 30% more energy-efficient and 30% frequency increase. This means that for the 6800 XT, an increase of 54% is achieved over the last generation RNDA and the 6900 XT achieves a 65% increase. Scott Herkelman announced several new features for the new Radeon series. One of the said features for the RX 6000 series is called Rage Mode. Rage Mode - Allows one-click overclocking for your 6000 series card. Smart Access Memory Allows you to pair CPU and GPU to gain additional performance. AMD claims that you can see up to a 13% performance increase when enabling this feature with your paired Ryzen 5000 series processors and the RX 6000 series graphics cards. Reduced latency reducing improvements Several improvements were listed in regards to latency. AMD announced up to 37% lower latency in Fortnite at 4K. He also mentioned that they are still working on a Super-resolution feature to give gamers an option for improved performance while using ray tracing.  I'm thoroughly impressed by the performance metrics that Lisa Su shared with us regarding the 6900 XT and I can't wait for the 3rd party benchmarks to be released regarding the upcoming release of the RX 6000 series!

I was an early adopter on the 5700XT but the driver issues pushed me back to NVIDIA and I ended up with a 2080 Super. If AMD has the availability and driver stability we might finally be back in an age where there's real competition in the GPU market.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DreadPirateRoberts ✭ October 2020 I've heard that AMD are making it a prime focus because of the feedback from the last generation.

Hopefully, they'll do it right this time.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin October 2020 If AMD turns the game around with their driver support, it'll still be a vast improvement as a whole.  I'm excited to see how this turns out.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Krogroth ✭ November 2020 Will Microcenter have the RX 6800 XT in store on November 18th? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 Yes, we're expecting to have the 6800 XT on the morning of release!  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Nick_C8 ✭ November 2020 Do you also intend to have the normal 6800 in stock in stores on the morning of Nov 18th? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CHRONOBODI ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 i hail from Long Island.... im hoping the stock level of 6800XT will be decent on morning. then again, after the RTX 3000 series crapshow, i might have to consider camping the Westbury MC.    not in the mood to compete with lots of bots and spamming f5. Braving the cold in a nice warm jacket on a chair seems like a comfier idea. 6800XT still going to make my titan x pascal look like an old gtx 1070 by comparison. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 @Nick_C8 Yes, we expect to have them. However, the stock may be limited, so keep an eye out. I haven't heard anything about stock levels, personally but with recent launches for other products stock on release has been limited. So, again, I'd recommend keeping an eye out until we get closer to the date of release. Hopefully we'll know more then. If I learn anything, I'll be sure to share it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CHRONOBODI ✭ November 2020 are you expecting more 6800xts than 6800?  LandShark said: @Nick_C8 Yes, we expect to have them.

I've heard that we'll have them on release, but nothing about the amount. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CHRONOBODI ✭ November 2020 to be fair its 2 weeks from launch, so, we all are waiting to see til then. thank you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 We're all waiting to see! It's an exciting time to be a gamer 😊 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BIGDADDY ✭ November 2020 Is the stock going  to be better the the 3000 series 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin November 2020 BIGDADDY said: Is the stock going  to be better the the 3000 series We just don't know yet. I HOPE it is, but until those cards are actually on the shelves we don't really know.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Catboylilly ✭ November 2020 How early will you be able to wait in line for the launch?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BIGDADDY ✭ November 2020 how early would the line start 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin November 2020 Catboylilly said: How early will you be able to wait in line for the launch?  BIGDADDY said: how early would the line start So this is going to depend on your store. Some stores for the RTX 3000 series launch we saw people showing up the evening before and camping overnight. Some you may not see that happen. I don't know if people will do the same for the new AMD GPUs, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bbnn ✭ November 2020 @TSTonyV will we get updates from you guys on availability like you guys did for Ampere? really appreciated that 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Catboylilly ✭ November 2020 Is there a good chance you will be getting a shipment of Rtx 3000 cards aswell?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CHRONOBODI ✭ November 2020 i mean, rtx 3000 stock is pretty bad if you still can't get one normally 2 months after the launch. which is why im hoping the "easier" manufacturing of RX 6000 on tsmc 7nm, (known to yield pretty good) as well as those cards being 256-bit bus as well, leads to lower memory modules per gpu needed. Also, gddr6 is plentiful to get vs gddr6x by comparison. u can tell by 3070 having somewhat more stock than 3080 or 3090 ever did, by 256-bit bus cards and gddr6 being more manufacturable, if that's a word. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Millix ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 Will the cards be available to reserve online or will they have in-store exclusivity?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 @bbnn We'll do our best to with what information we have. Hopefully, the community will keep us up to date with in-store visits and updates! @Millix They will be in-store only. If you're wanting one on release day, I'd guess that you'll have to arrive pretty early before launch. 😊 Hopefully, things are as @CHRONOBODI and we'll have quite a lot of inventory available. I havn't heard anything about stock levels yet though.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Goreopsy ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 Hi! I don't know whether, even if the staff knows the answer to the following question, it is allowed to answer, but I'll try. Is there in any way that you guys would preemptively, before the launch day or on the day before opening hours, know if the stock that you'll receive will be in the quantity of several dozens, beyond a hundred, or even several hundreds? I'm asking because I think I'll be waiting before the store few hours before the opening hour and would like to ensure that, when I will count how many people are in the line before me, I'll know whether there's any point in me waiting in the line. This is the first time ever I'm considering waiting in line for an item before store hours (due to the pandemic and manufacturing shortages, y'know), so I'd like to know better what to expect. Pardon my lengthy explanation. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Millix ✭ November 2020 Will there be a limit to how many you can buy at once?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook acslater86 ✭ November 2020 If I go wait in line at the door before opening, can we reserve a 6000 series card based on availability, or do we have to do a mad dash to the back to grab one?   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 Goreopsy said: Hi!

I'd assume that it will be done in a similar fashion to our other recent releases. With vouchers that will be handed out to those in line as the store opens. I'm not 100% certain on this, as I know we are always looking for ways to improve our processes. I know it will not be a mad dash. 😊 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Goreopsy ✭ November 2020 LandShark said: Goreopsy said: Hi!

Can I get a little clarification on this? Is it 1 total or 1 per type. I am building 2 PCs, one for me and one for my son. I, being the more avid gamer(IMHO) of the two, intend to purchase the 6900XT, but I would like to put a 6800 in his machine. The issue is the fact that I am not keen on allowing my son to skip school to stand in line all night to get our hands on 2 separate cards. I understand the reasoning behind purchase limits, just wanting clarification so I know what I am walking into the night of. BTW, super stoked about this, as I am making the switch from Intel/NVidia(I have built every PC I have ever owned for 28 years, and this is my first all AMD rig). Thanks for taking time to answer all these questions! I am so lucky I didn't grow up near a Micro Center. I would have spent every dollar I ever earned in that place. My wife can't keep me away now that I found the Overland Park store is just 15 minutes away! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «1234567…14» Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.
