New Desktop PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I'm looking to build a Desktop and as I'm a little out of the PC world for some months, I am outdated in what parts to pick, so I'm looking for help here.

I'm migrating from a laptop setup that has a ruined motherboard (i7 8750HQ, 16GB RAM, GTX 1060 6GB, 144Hz 1080p IPS screen).

I am based in Portugal, so my currency is Euros and I'm probably buying from one of these stores: https://www.pcdiga.com/ , https://www.globaldata.pt/ , https://www.assismatica.pt/ , https://www.chip7.pt/ , https://www.nanochip.pt/

If you can't translate the websites, "Componentes" means components, "Armazenamento" means storage, "Periféricos" means peripherals.

 

I game a bit (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, CSGO, highly modded Skyrim, Civilization V and VI) and I work in video production (1080p footage on Premiere) and photography (Lightroom and Photoshop).

I require 32GB of RAM for my normal workflow as I multitask a lot.

 

I also need a monitor with good color accuracy, nothing over the top though (resolution-wise, 1080p is enough, 144Hz preferable).

I'm also looking for a decent keyboard, if you guys want to recommend something (white backlight is all I need, mechanical switches appreciated but not mandatory).

If I can keep the overall cost below 1400€, that would be my sweet spot.

 

Thanks for the help, guys!

I must say, the prices are not great for portugal, if pcpartpicker.com is anything to go by. Squeezing a fast SSD and some cheap-but-good components here and there barely puts the build out of budget. That shipping cost is brutal, almost 220 euros!

Hey man, probably that "Newegg Portugal" is shipping from the US, that's why the shipping is so expensive. In Portuguese stores, because of Covid I can get everything with free shipping. I would stay away from Newegg as a parts seller. I'm going to edit the original post though, and up the budget to 1300€.

 

Edit: I've checked PCPartPicker, and the stores there are wayyy too limited, I'm going to provide links to some reputable stores in the main post.

unfortunately that site you linked is super slow on my PC, and google translate isn't helping me read it. If you can, look for a 970 Evo and a GTX 1650 super, then this PC will be even better.

 

As for monitor, I don't have any specific recommendations, any monitor with a large enough screen and an IPS panel should be worth considering.

Thanks for the help, I left some different stores in the main post if you want to try to check them out, and a cheat sheet with translations for the main menus.

looks like amazon doesn't have the best prices either, unfortunately.

Yeah, that's why I put the first store there, that's the one I think has the best prices, but if the website loads slowly for you, no problem, thanks for the help anyway!
