Hello

I play video games almost 8 hours daily with my very old pc, now i have enough money to build a good pc after 3 years of saving. I tried to build and choose the parts but it was very hard for me to understand because my English is not that good and i wasn't sure.

I'm looking for the for only the pc without the screen

can you help me please ?

Thank you

Some additional detail is needed.

  1. What location? Different parts of the world have different prices and part sources.

  2. What currency? $4000 USD is very different from even $4000 CAD, for example.

  3. Is this only for games? Do you do any streaming/video work/etc.?

  4. Did you need mouse/keyboard/etc?

  5. Any other requests? Such as lighting, colour, etc?

If not then I would probably go with a threadripper system if it was my money. Just because if game developers actually push ray tracing, core count will help performance. Right now a bog standard i7 will beat a Threadripper out of the box. (For gaming).

For monitor what you want is a high end fast refresh rate G-Sync monitor. I left a bunch of room in your budget to get like a $1200 which is what I would recommend if you heave the money for it. ASUS makes an excellent ROG swift monitor, and Acer has a Predator monitor. Both of these are over $1k and are about the best monitors you can get for gaming right now.

If you provide more detail you may get wildly different builds so I didn't take the time to go through every component.

Check out my thread too! I literally have the same 4k post. However on the builds there id switch the CPU for something more suited to just gaming. I got the 12core in now for the renders.

get the I7 8700K, it offers a lot more performance for a small price difference

Looks like he will use this for 3+ years just like his old system. 12 threads wouldn't be remiss.
