New PC guide

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,


So, I'm a noob here obviously, so I'm editing my post.


1. Budget & Location

Jersey, Channel Islands (UK), £1500-£2000

2. Aim

Programming, some games

3. Monitors

For now 1 but gonna upgrade to 2 down the road (if i could fit 2 in the budget, even better), ultrawide 27"

4. Peripherals

Yes, mechanical keyboard, already know for the mouse and the mousepad, don't need speakers but would like some nice headphones. 

5. Why are you upgrading?

iMac struggling to compile code. :D 

Currently, I have an iMac (mid2014, i5, 8gb ram) that I'm gonna give to my brother when I get myself a PC, but I'm mostly doing programming, so nothing too intensive (ok, for the iMac it is when is compiling a butt ton of code :D )


Also, would like to play a few games then and there, but I'm also not a big gamer.

BUT, where the problem is, i want a mini ITX build, but can't find some case that suits my needs.

That's why I'm posting here, in hope that someone will give me some advice.


Currently, I was thinking of Ryzen 7 3800x, 32gb 3200MHz ram, m.2 ssd, etc, but can't find a suitable mobo and a case. I'm not too big into OC but would like to play with that.

I was looking at everything on Amazon, but don't want to post any links cause I don't want to break any rules. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
