I’m looking to build a new machine, primarily for software engineering work with some gaming. I recently graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology with B.S. Computer Engineering, and I’m about to start working while pursuing a masters degree in Computer Science.
Additionally, I do have a dell r710 with 72gb RAM for linux c++ software development that I use, so I wont so much need 64gb ram in my machine, i’m thinking that 32gb will be sufficient for a while to come.
Currently Have: all peripherals & monitors, 500gb nvme, hard drives, and ssd’s.
I’m looking at the noctua nhd15 versus the AIO watercoolers, having had an h100i in the past, I’m thinking about getting a high-performance air cooler instead.
cpu: ryzen 2700x
cpu-cooler: Noctua NH-D15
motherboard: Asus Crosshair VII
gpu: open to recommendations within the <500$ range. Used okay!
case: Fractal Design Define R6
