Time to upgrade/build a new rig. Current system is over 5 years old. Gaming/media rig. Budget is 2000 - 2500 American dollars. Box only no periph’s. Not a big over clocker but i will play a bit. Air cool, (the idea of water inside my system is very counter intuitive) Would like to get 5 years out of this new build if possible.
I don’t keep up with hardware after i do a build (unless something breaks) so im just now starting to get up to speed on whats out there.
Clean reliable power and a quality motherboard are a must. Im pretty set on The Gigaabyte Aorus Pro. A quality PS is mandatory
Here is my preliminary part picker build. The AMD Ryzen line looks impressive so i haven’t ruled that out.
Open to all critique/suggestions … even the MB choice
