Looks like a great build, especially with that x850 XT. Any reason you didn't go with the Venice?

well i wasnt really sure of the differences, and a person who is highly knowledgeable on hardware suggested the winchester.

Well I'd hate to say that he's wrong, but he is. The Venice is newer and can OC higher. To be honest though, the difference won't pain you much since it isn't huge. I have a winchester, and it is indeed very quick. I just hope you didn't buy that CPU off of newegg. The winchester is still more expensive than the Venice, surprisingly.

Have you already ordered this, or is it your planned build?

Yeah, it is because I built my PC around April when the Venice wasn't out yet. To be honest though, I don't feel like I'm missing out on a whole lot.

@beedubaya
I think I ordered this already. After all, the thread title is called "got my new pc".
