First build in 10 years - Any suggestions or changes you'd make?

Go to solution Solved by Pixelfie,

Cheaper and better 🙂 Couldn't find the Meshify C for some reason so I chose this case.

Country: Canada

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: AAA Games, VirtualBox, programming but nothing too intense

Existing Parts: I already own all the peripherals I'd need, including 2x Monitors (one 144Hz monitor), a Keyboard, and a Mouse

Upgrading From: I have a really old PC that I built ~10 years ago. Going to be nice to have a new computer again 🙂

Buy Date: ASAP - I'm looking to order everything sooner rather than later.

 

I was looking at something like this but of course open to other options/suggested modifications! https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/6D8sVw

Seems pretty nicely balanced.

If I were you, I'd upgrade to a 12700K for the 2 extra p-cores but it's not that big of a deal.

Also keep in mind that AMD's Zen4 might beat Intel's 12th gen and is releasing in about 5 weeks, if you feel like waiting. It might be better for you, but if not I'm sure 12th gen prices will drop even if you don't want Zen4.

I would upgrade to a 12700K/KF like the above commenter said. I’d also go with a MUCH better cooler especially at your price point, like the Arctic Liquid Freezer II or Deepcool AK620.

 

I’d go with a 4.0 SSD like the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus as well- you aren’t going to get max speeds with a 3.0 SSD on a 4.0 capable board.
