Budget (including currency): USD

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Games: WoW, R6S, Destiny 2, PUBG, Apex.

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): So all I have is a Corsair MMO mouse and a keyboard. I have been basically playing only MTGO on a PC but with the price and just getting older I think it is time to jump to PC. Been a dirty console pleb for the past 15 years though. My biggest hurtle is without a doubt knowing what I need and what almost anything means. I have tried reading artcles and looking at prefab things but since this is post 2016 and facts and opinions are indecipherable I am here. I mostly am looking for something that is moderately future proof. Can run 2 monitors at once and won't struggle to play any of the listed games at normal graphics. I mean streaming is something I am interested in but it would just be like streaming MTGO (Magic the gathering online) which is about 200 years old and had no graphical requirements lol.

** Forgot budget. Well I mean preferably I would like be below $2000.

I only work in autoparts so its not like I have a surplus of spare change lol.

Please help.

What is your budget in USD?

Like 1000$ etc.

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

Something like this is a very good system:

I gave you a 144hz monitor, you can always add upto like 3 monitors in the future.

Ahhh I did not notice the 2.5 inch. I kinda used the parametric filtering thing. 🙂

Completely agree with this
Cant see any place where you can cut corners here other then maybe 1tb mech drive 
This will give you a clear upgrade part in future you can probably upgrade to 5XXX series processor tho i doubt it'll be any useful

So I put in the 3070 and 5600x at msrp, you will have to wait around a while but hopefully you can snag these for decent prices when they come back in stock (keep looking out for them). No real need for 8 cores and a 3080 for this kind of workload, sure you can go for it but no point spending more money than you need to for the sake of it. I also put in a 1440p 165hz monitor. 🙂
