PC for programming and some gaming

Im a computer science student looking to build my own computer, for the first time, mainly for programming and very little gaming, last game i played was CS 1.6. I will dabble in most areas of programming during my study, and maybe take a master's degree in AI. However this is many years away and will probably upgrade again before that.

Budget: Not really sure, around 6000 NOK or below would be acceptable.

I have all peripherals and I have both SSD's and HDD's, would atleast like to run 1 SSD and 1 HDD.

Id like to use this dealer: https://www.komplett.no/k/k.aspx, but they dont have a english version to the best of my knowledge.

I would like to run 3 screens and easily be able to upgrade to a forth screen later on.   

What would be the cheapest way to run multiple monitors?

When you choose parts, would start with the CPU then GPU then motherboart then RAM then powersupply?

Something like this for GPU? https://www.komplett.no/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-750ti-2gb-physx/827806

How powerful of a CPU would I need? Something like this? https://www.komplett.no/amd-a8-6500/783159

How much RAM?

A motherboard has to be picked last to fit all the parts, rigth? or first and build around the motherboard. 

How do I choose compatible parts? 

How do you choose a powersupply? Can you just add up all the power the different parts need?


Any help is much appreciated, fan of the show for a long time. Very new at building my own computer. Thank You

"programming" is pretty general. If you mean only doing the programming tasks you are given, then you don't need much. On the other hand, if you are going to develop stuff by yourself, MAYBE you need some power?

Sometimes OEMs make a model especially for driving many monitors. The 750ti you linked should be good.



Thanks for the advice!

Gainward GeForce GTX 580 1536MB PhysX will this support multiple monitors? atleast 3?


This is the GPU i have now and when i tried three monitors many years ago it didnt work, did I do something wrong? Should it be able to support three monitors?


only 2 I think,

but you should be able to connect a 3rd to the integrated graphics.

Didn't think of that! I will try that when I come home from christmas break! 

Thanks man, very helpfull!
