1. Budget & Location
Live in Israel, my budget is around 4000-5000 Israeli shekels. Which amounts to about 1000 - 1500 USD.
Gaming, mostly AAA games. I've played almost every major game from RPG type games to shooters to RTS.
No, I've a Corsair k70 keyboard and a steelseries mouse. No need for peripherals.
5. Why are you upgrading?
I've been compromising on quality with most games lately, and can't seem to get steady frames even when I game at 1080.
6. what I'm looking for
No offense to AMD, but I really don't like the company's reputation... So unless it affects performance in a major way, I'd like to stick to intel and nvidia.
Also, I've never overclocked a computer before. I am open minded, and wouldn't mind trying to overclock, but it's not a requirement for me.
I'd been happy to hear some recommendations, specifically on the CPU and motherboard.
Motherboard: I'm looking for a motherboard that has 2 expansion slots, 4 slots for ram, could allow for potential overclocking.
CPU: literally looking for a CPU that wouldn't be the limiting factor in my system. I don't want the CPU to be the bottleneck when I game.
CPU cooling: if I'm not overclocking, the stock cooler should work... But if I'll overclock I'd like to stick to air cooling.
Ram: 8-16 gigs of ram. In Israel I can get 2 stick (4gb each) for about a 100 USD.
GPU: literally the cheapest 1070 I can fine. The cheapest I found here was the Asus duel gtx1070 for around 530 USD.
Power supply: I'd prefer a modular one. I'm looking for a cheap reliable PSU, enough wattage to support the build with just a tad to spare.
Case: I don't really mind how the inside of the system looks like, nor do I care about the case. It'll be beneath my desk at home. Looking for a pretty large case, that'll fit the GPU and PSU, doesn't need rgb or tempered glass or anything fancy. As many USB slots as possible, with dust filters and decent airflow.
My previous PC has an sad and a hard drive that I'll take with me to this new build, and an extension card that has two Ethernet ports ( I have a cable running straight from the home router to my PC, and an access point that's also connected to my PC, while the connections are bridged within windows). These are pretty much the only salvageable components I can take with me.
I'd be happy if u guys could recommend a build and tell me what you think, I am pretty new to PC building so I'd love to hear your opinion and criticism.
Thanks in advance, Jonathan
