Completely new to building my own pc

Budget (including currency): Somewhere around €2200, max €3000

Country: Belgium

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mainly CSGO, Visual Studio Code, Mamp

Other details

No existing parts lists.

 

I have 2 monitors, both 1920x1080, but primary monitor has 144hz, 1ms response time and is connected with DVI. This is the culprit for finding a modern GPU.

(Might also get a 3rd 'normal' monitor in the future.)

 

Would prefer Intel I7 cpu.

 

I'm not into RGB, sorry 😛

 

I'd purchase this build in about 6 months.

DVI is 100% compatible with earlier HDMI standards (I believe 1.2, but don't quote me on that), meaning you can get super cheap passive adapter cables to be able to connect that monitor up no problem. Something like this should do the trick, there are a ton out there.

Wait 6 months before making the parts list. By then AM5 will be out, same with Raptor Lake, and odds are new GPUs will be out as well. Basically, whatever we recommend today will be outdated and likely won't make sense by then. Heck, even a week is enough time for a recommendation not to make sense because of how frequently prices shift in this industry (for my current build, my motherboard choice changed 3 times within the week I was planning to build because a different board was cheaper each time I went to look at it, including as I was leaving for the store to go pick it up). Once you're ready to start building, then make the parts list.

Thanks for the response!

 

However the cable you linked doesn't seem to support 144hz, and I doubt new GPU's will have DVI ports. (I've read that they're slowly getting rid of them).

In the best case scenario, i dont want to deal with adapters or special cables.

Some have advised me to just get a new monitor, but i feels like such a waste as my monitor is still as good as new...

 

Really, i'm just fine with getting a pc build with an "older" graphics card that does support DVI. I don't need the newest components on the market.

Look for "displayport to dual link dvi 144mhz". There are numerous offerings. I have zero experience with any of them.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

PSU is a bit overkill but its 12 year warranty speaks for itself. You could save some money with a different PSU.

That cable I found in 1 minute of googling, so take that for what you will. There are cables that will work for this, and it's best if you just use one of them. 

 

The last GPU that had a DVI port on it was released in 2017, over 5 years old at this point. You'd be stuck getting a GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti, which for this price range I'd feel is a bit unacceptable levels of performance, plus there are a number of 1080s that had their VRMs just blow up. When you can get a faster GPU for cheaper and just use a cable like that, I see no reason to get an older card like that.
