In my humble opinion, if you're looking for a build to last a couple years, then the one you chosen isn't the case. However, if you intend on overclocking your cpu/ram, it's a good option. If you decide to purchase a solid PC, check out my specification's, for example. You'll get an idea this way. If you shall choose an central processing unit with 16 core's & up, Intel or AMD, it doesn't matter. I assure you that. When it come's to random access memory, allocate all slot's, to use the full potential of your motherboard, it'll be up to 128 gigabytes, that's if you decide on a serious cpu 🙂 Yes, you may overclock Intel's or AMD's awesome multi-core's cpu's, however, you will need proper cooling and that would be liquid only. Overclocking with air cooling, mean's short-term life cycle on components.
In the end, deciding on this specific build, require's particular budget, moreover, rest assured, you will never go back to cheap cpu's.
Thanks for the tip. I'll look into it. I'm curious though, why do you believe this will get dated that fast?
I want to build a new PC for gaming and work and I am having a hard time deciding.
It's also been a while since I've done this so I'm kinda out of the loop (or so it feels this way) when it comes to new hardware.
I usually don't change my PC too often so I'd like to go with something that will last for a few years. This is also the reason I haven't set a budget yet.
This is what I've come up with so far.
- Case: Be quiet! Dark Base 900, FullTower + some extra Be quiet! Silent Wings 3 140mm PWM fans if needed
- Power Supply: Corsair RMi Series RM750i, 80 PLUS® Gold, 750 W, PFC Activ, ATX 2.4
- Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS X HERO, Socket 1151
- CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Coffee Lake, 3.70GHz, 12M, Socket 1151
- CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
- Video Card: ASUS GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti STRIX, 11GB GDDR5X, 352-bit
- SSD: Samsung 860 EVO, 1TB, SATA III, M.2
- HDD: SEAGATE IronWolf NAS 2TB, 5900rpm, SATA3, 64MB (I already have this and didn't use it at all and since it's all about storage...)
- Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB LED 16GB DDR4, 3000MHz, CL16, Dual Channel
- Monitor: PG27VQ vs PG278QR (not sure which one but I'd like to go 2K)
Any thoughts? Is there something I'm missing?
