What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What i will be using it for: Multimedia and Games. I usually don't play newer games when they come out (but would like to) or need them to run on 4k or something (i have a 1080 144hz Monitor). I like fps and strategy games, which i guess are cpu heavy. Here is a list of games i play:
DayZ Hoi4 Space Engineers Total War Skyrim with Mods Killing Floor 2 CS:GO State of Decay 2
And i will be equally using it (if not more) for Adobe Programms and Blender for Animation, Ps, Premiere and so on and Ableton Live 10 music production and similar products.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
700 to 800 max.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
So I need a new Case, cpu + cooler, motherboard ram and Power supply. I don't really have the same time to get super uptodate with the new technology like i used to when i was is school so hopefully you guys can help me with that :)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Europe, Germany, Lower Saxony.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
GTX 760 (updaing for Christmas to a newer Model, so the new power supply needs to be able to handle it), Samsung 128 SSD, Vortex 128 SSD, 1TB Western Digital, Blue Ray and CD Player, Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, Focusrite Scarlet Solo 3 Gen (external soundcard)
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Not really, down the Line maybe in a couple of years, just to keep up basically, or for rendering and the animation programs/adobe.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
White or Black, its not that important for me.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Extra: My old Mainboard broke and i think its time now to change the 8 year old components. Its just not worth it, they don't produce these mainboards anymore and the used ones usually break pretty quickly. Add to that that all this just doesn't perform so well, so its time for a change. So as i said I need a new Case, cpu + cooler, motherboard, RAM and power supply. The power is working but 8 years old and when im upgrading the gpu around Christmas i dont thing that's going to cut it anymore.
I can spend for all needed components 700 to max 800 Euros. I don't need a fancy silenced case but it shouldn't look to shabby. Something in Black or White. The most important thing for me is durability and quality in all components. I would like it to be good for the next 5 years. A overclocking option would be good in that case. (pun intended)
So hopefully you can help me and thanks for reading and taking the time!
