New gaming computer and monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, my current computer is 10 years old, so it's time to buy a new system.

I'm from Finland and budget should stay under 3,500€.

 

New gaming computer that can handle minor video capturing/editing. Will pick smooth gameplay with high FPS over 4K gaming so one requirement is G-Sync in this system.

Should be quiet system with no glass panels, so it would not do stupid light shows in middle of movies/gaming.

 

- Need new display, so looking at Asus ROG Swift PG278QR (27" 2560 x 1440).

- Got Samsung 4K Smart-TV from 2018 as Netflix platform and it will work as 2nd monitor when needed.

- List has fast HD for OS, bigger HD for games and 3rd HD for video capturing/random storage or backups. Already have 8Tb NAS-system for filesharing on home network.

- Don't never want to lack free USB3 slots, so adding 4 Port PCI Express (PCIe) SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter into this, but PCPartPicker didn't have those under accessories.

- Would 32 GB memory pay itself with better performance over 16 GB in this list when gaming?

What kind of improvements I should be looking before spending the cash on this new rig?

Go with 32GB for future proofing. 16GB is fine for now but as games get more graphically intense it's a nice idea to get 32

Thanks Plouffe for good ideas. Did mix some ideas..

 

- Dropped SSHD as did not look like it's huge help.

- I said 850, you 650, so taking safe ground with RMx 750 power.

- Store I'm buying this has Ryzen 9 3900X bundled with Strix X570-F Gaming motherboard and HyperX Fury 16 GB memory sticks, so going that path instead.

  ( instead of cheaper Ryzen 7 3700X, that Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS board and G.Skill Trident Z memory )

- That AORUS version of RTX 2080 SUPER was nice, I totally missed that.

 

This feels like final setup:

Since you go with a 3900x, get the Dark Rock Pro 4 or Noctua NH D15 chromax black instead.

It's a good motherboard so nothing to worry here.

Do not go with 2666MHz ram, Zen 2 needs 3000-3200 and the sweet spot is 3600.

650w was already more than enough so 750w is a little overkill.

Hups, I linked wrong item into memory it seems.

"Kingston 16GB (2 x 8GB) HyperX Fury, DDR4 3200MHz, CL16, 1.35V, black" is text in onlinestore, so smart me just looked exact price and picked that from System Builder instead of reading what I added... All good now.

 

I will upgreade that CPU cooler into Pro version. Thank you for noticing that. 

 

@grss1982, it's rare to meet another non-RGB superfan these days.
