  1. Thanks. Do you have some tests I can look at to understand why SSD vs NVME wont matter in my case?
  2. @jaslion, thanks for the input. I do indeed have a computer, its a laptop, so it works, but I could really use the additional power. But I agree, a 3070 with Ryzen 4000 might be worth the wait. As for disk performance, I am not sure I understand what you are saying. Are you saying that a SATA SSD is as good as a NVME for my workload?
  3. Budget (including currency): $1000-$2000 Country: EU / Denmark Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Primarily programming, but also plan to start gaming a little again with the kids, and it should have no problem streaming to e.g. Twitch. Programming workloads are usually spiky, with frequent high loads on CPU. Longer compiles that takes seconds or minutes to run, where a full (CPU) load should be expected. Storage is key - it should handle small text files very well and be able to load then as fast as possible. 64 GB memory or more, for running VMs or Docker images locally. As quite as possible. Other details: Needed: Good keyboard Monitor arms for the two 27" I already have (ideally with expansion possibility for a 3rd monitor) Have: I already have two 27" 2560x1440 displays, and I want to add a bigger 37"+ high refresh rate 4K/5Kish monitor, but its not a priority right now. Windows license My own thoughts: ITX form factor, as small as possible. Considering building a case myself, otherwise a small and minimalistic case as possible without compromising thermals and noise. No RGB. Looking at Noctua D15 chromax black as the cooler https://noctua.at/en/nh-d15-chromax-black Think perhaps two NVME in RAID 0, with a larger SSD as (nightly) backup target will give the best small file read performance, but not sure. Not sure what kind of GPU I need, but with the latest release from NVIDIA I think some pretty good ones should be available at a very good price soon. I will gladly pay more for quite operations, e.g. higher rated power supply with silent operation Thanks, Egil
