    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    To be Honest I was going too get a Mac Pro but not at $6K. PCIe 4.0 and Ice lake is more than a tempting wait. I've been happily getting on for a while with my trusty 4790K build waiting for something worth the upgrade, These past few years have been slow in the Intel processor development market.
