New PC Build, advice greatly appreciated

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): $1500-$2000

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Will be streaming, will like to use 3 monitors

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Building 100% from scratch. I'm just trying to build the best rig with the money I have. The budget above is strictly for the PC, I have a different budget for the other stuff. If anyone has suggestions on the following too, I'd greatly appreciate it!: Keyboard, Mouse, Mic, Monitor, Camera

when are you planning on building this? if you are not in a hurry, i would recommend waiting for newer hardware. as for the peripherals and monitor, its best to state your budget and make a seperate thread in their respective subforum.

Streaming and gaming, I assume? What games will you be playing, and at what sort of settings?


Also, this might not be the best time to build a $1500+ PC, simply because there's new hardware coming soon both in the CPU and GPU department.

My words of advice:

Don't buy Cherry Browns.

Don't play Overwatch. I've hate the game yet I play it every day.

Wireless > Lighter Mice

Silence > Temps for Coolers

Get a good PSU
