Other details So as the title states, this will be the first ever pc i have owned, let alone built. I currently use a 2014 macbook pro, which has been a good machine and is only really showing its age/incompatibilities this year. The purpose of this pc is to simply be able to do everything i currently do now+ some things like high quality gaming, for the next 5+ years at least with this machine, hopefully longer. I have went through this list at least 5 or 6 times and changed a lot of parts, finally landing on this list. I am happy to spend more on extras such as storage and a better keyboard down the road, however i dont want to pay more than 2100 or 5% over budget right now. I am currently saving up to hopefully purchase the parts and by late November/December time, and have it up and running by around New Year. If you could please have a look at my parts list and tell me if there is anything better value/price for this list, the only parts I am really set on are the CPU and GPU combo, the rest i am happy to improve upon. Thanks for any time and advice.

ask again 1-2 weeks before you're ready to buy, anything we give you now will be irrelevant by then.

@4K-Pong If you can wait for some time ZEN 3 and Ampere are launching soon. I suggest waiting until then and then asking the forum one again for parts.

I will recommend an NHu12s (or an NHd15 (maybe)) for your PC build. Quote or @ me @Prodigy_Smit for me to see your replies.

Welcome to the forum!

 

As others have said, now is not the time to buy wait a few weeks and we likely willl have more hardware launching, and with a $2k budget it is worth the wait for sure.
