spec out a £2500 pc

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I’ve been in and out of the hardware scene for the past 3ish years, only looking at the odd update here and there.

I’ve been having random crashing that appears and disappears randomly, replaced several parts and have gotten tired of it as it seems impossible to diagnose due to its random nature.

I’m looking into getting a pc for roughly the £2.5k mark. and id like some suggestions as to what people would recommend for that price range

i do have a 1080 it FTW3 Hybrid from evga and i don't think it is something that needs upgrading though if it bottlenecks one of the newer cpus ill definitely look into making an upgrade there.

i also like my current case and peripherals

i do want to upgrade my stupidly old benq monitor preferably with a 1440p+ panel with freesync / gsync (freesync being one of those nvidia compatible ones)

The new 3900X is looking good for my use case as i do use maya photoshop zbrush ect on the daily though i also game in my down time though i haven't looked into many other options yet.

any help you can give would be appreciated

Same as @LukeSavenije cuz that clearly something i would pick. Except with a slightly better mobo. 

 

Very hard to go wrong when choosing X570 mobos. Almost all of them are great

Indeed it does. Its a really solid VRM, but so is most x570 boards. 

 

 

Really just says what VRM is used on the Hero for what it is.

That is the one thing that sucks about it, but its at the board tier there is no point going higher

The 2080 is a bit faster, but not enough to justify the cost. I would see what performance is like with your 1080 ti first.

 

The Gigabyte Aorus 1440p Monitor is worth looking at as well. A bit more expensive but it is an IPS panel.
