Here are my requirements for the new system:
1. Do you want to play on PC?
- What exactly are games? Currently: League of Legends, Diablo 3, The Witcher 3 Future: Cyberpunk, (Diablo 4)
- Which Precision? Is Full HD (1920×1080) or WQHD (2560×1440) enough or should it be 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160)? WQHD, because I want to buy a new monitor with the new PC (extra budget)
- Ultra/high/medium/low graphics settings? High to ultra would be awesome
- 30 Is it enough for you? FPS Or should it be 60 or even 144 fps? 60 + FPS would be desirable
2. Would you like to use your computer to edit photos/music/videos or CAD? As a hobby or are you a professional? What software will you use?
3. Do you have special requirements or wishes (overclocking, a particularly quiet PC, RGB lighting, …)?
4. How many screens do you want to use? Number, Model, Resolution, Refresh Rate (Hertz)? Do you support FreeSync (AMD) or G-Sync (Nvidia)? (Please with a link to the manufacturer or compare prices!)
– BenQ Zoe XL2411
5. Do you still have an old computer, parts of which can be reused? (Please with links to specifications from the manufacturer or compare prices!)
- Processor (CPU): Intel Xeon E3 1231 v3.0
- Memory (RAM): 8 GB DDR3
- Motherboard: ASRock H97 Pro4
- Power supply: I can’t say exactly. However, the power pack has a 100% output of 550 watts.
- Housing: Sharkoon 28 BD, blue acrylic window
- Graphics Card: GTX 660 Ti
- HDD / SSD: 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD
I don’t think you can use it anymore. The PC was assembled in 2014.
6. How much money do you want to spend?
About 1000-1300 Euro
7. When do you want to buy the computer? ASAP or can you wait a few weeks/months?
Preferably within the next two weeks.
8. Do you want to assemble the computer yourself or assemble it (by the store or by volunteers)?
I want to assemble this computer myself for the first time.
I would have based on AMD’s current CB recommendation of around €1,300 (https://geizhals.de/?cat=WL-1314947).
Can I buy the kit like this or will it be too much for my needs?
How better would compilation be with an Intel CPU? (https://geizhals.de/?cat=WL-1314948)
Thanks in advance for your support!
