i literally wasted a lot of thousands of euros in the last years building “ok” PCs, where all of them hat different kind of issues and ran into bottlenecks. The load performance of my Systems was always a way under the Specs, I have enough!
My PCs are always (in my personal economical opinion) very expensive.
I search for the possible best way to get done what i need in the best price/performance levels.
The Usecase of my PC is working (90%) and gaming (10% )
I run multiple OS and use Windows and Linux
→ Windows 10 LTSC for working and gaming.
HyperV and VMWare Workstation.
→ Ubuntu 22.04 work working only.
KVM and Qemu.
I am running about 8 to 10 VMs same time when working, they are 20% Windows and 80% Linux.
Also I have a Dual 10GB/s Nework (LACP) which connects to a 80TB SSD SCSI Storage
At least the following Hardware components/specs are required:
A CPU with minimum! 16Cores / 32 Threads
Minimum 128GB RAM
1 M.2 2TB (OS)
1 M.2 4TB (Data)
A “high level” Consumer GPU like the next 4090, with 4 Screens attached.
Dual 10GB/s Nework (LACP SCSI Storage)
Currenctly I am running the i9 10980XE and its a completely nightmare…
I did not save money on “review”-based top RAM, Mainboard or anything, it is just not running well.
I am thinking about to eat the Apple and go try it with the
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5975WX, but its so expensive.
A more or less complete build on Intel might cost me about more or less 4000 to 6000 Euros (Without the SSDs).
A more or less complte build on AMD might cost me about more or less 8000 to 12000 Euros.
I also consider the upcoming 13700K, which have those weird performance and efficient cores, as i expect it to be a way cheaper as the AMD, no idea when the XE will come out or if there will be even one.
I do not have unlimited time to wait, I wish to got my new PC in about 1-3 Month max!
After all, I can (for sure) not run out of PCIe lanes so next Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 might not be an option for me, tell me if im wrong?
I im not sure if AMD EPYC (Milan) might also be an option, i saw people doing Desktop workstations with it.
Also I also want to know how to solve possible bottlenecks, i think attaching all my Storage in my Current system, just basically burned the Chipset.
I think I should use an Raid or HBA controller in my next build, to use the CPU Lanes instead.
Im really open for any help and suggestions for my next build.
Like what CPU to use and why, what RAM and why, what Motherboard (and Manufacturer) and why, how to attach internal storage, using onboard RAID or a controller RAID or HBA and so one…
What to watch out for, how to probably reduce the chance of bottlenecks, everthing could be helpful.
Im sick of paying so much money and the system just runs slow, slow load performance, unstable behaviors, low storage speed, low gaming speed.
I mean my Wifes PC have much lower specs even a slower GPU and she outplay me with FPS for a long time
PS: I love the L1Techs YT channel, im a big fan!
