I'm starting a new build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just got a pretty good paying job recently and thought I would celebrate with a new computer. Obviously I am not like a millionaire but I would say I would have about $2,000 USD to spend on it. The one thing is I don't care about gaming in VR I just want something I can use dual monitors and play Ark and watch youtube and or twitch. But this computer would be almost exclusively for gaming and content consumption not creation.
I was thinking about upgrading to a system that can run games in 4k iv'e never had a computer that could do that before. I know that I want the BitFenix Neo case which is a mid tower so prob an atx board going for kind of a white color scheme. I'm asking for help because I don't know what GPU and CPU would be good for what I want. Thanks for the advice much love<3

I would recommend waiting a week till the new nvidia gpus are announced and look if its worth waiting for stock of them to arrive.

It is hard to plan with a wildcard like that in the next few days :D

It looks nice :P 

but if you dont want it, just get 16 dual channel and spend some more money on the cooler like a h150i pro and get one of those Maximus mobos.

Also what do you think about the 270 or even 170 strix motherboard or do you think 370 so eventually I could upgrade to a better CPU? Also does the 8700K typically run hot like do you think I could get a way with a fan cooler? Also if I don't wanna overclock is there a CPU that's good for gaming but not overclockable? and final question is do you think I need a 1080 for just 4K but not VR?

270 or 170 will not work on coffee lake. 8700k runs really hot but a noctua d14/15 will work aswell. For 4k, id definitely get the ti as it has more Vram.

wait for new gpus, the rtx 1080 might be pretty sweet too.
