Well to start off I guess I should say this will be my second build, so I like to think I have a lot more PC knowledge than I did 3 Years ago when I made my first build, with that said I know there is a lot I have to learn which is why I'm here asking for some help.
As I said already my last build was 3 years ago so it is due time for an upgrade, games are getting much to demanding for this old girl it seems. I'm fresh outta high school and I'm taking a year off and working full time, perfect time to get this new build going as I have plenty of disposable income.
I have a couple of goals in mind for this build first and foremost, I wanna keep the price before peripherals below $4000.
I wanna keep a gorgeous aesthetic while not hurting performance to much so I have a couple of guidelines for myself. (still open to alternative suggestions)
4 ram sticks is a must, I am aware that 2 sticks are much better for performance, but I'm not too worried about the small hit I'll take going for 4. There's something about four sticks that just gets me goin. :))) (no pun intended)
Ensourced cables are absolutely stunning and their quality is top of the line. I would not want any other brand sitting in a build this expensive.
The monitor is very subject to change, I'm not too knowledgeable in monitors, but I know I want a thin bezel ultrawide with the best picture I can get for under $800, preferably much cheaper. from what I've read the monitor I have in the build seems to have pretty decent specs while still holding a good price. If anybody may know of a better option I'd love to hear about it as I am still searching.
other than just a few side notes that's about all I can think of to help guide anyone willing to share some ideas with me.
SIDE NOTES: I do plan to purchase the evolv x as soon as it becomes available again, but for now I have its predecessor in its place.
I'm not quite set on storage options so if you have suggestions I'd love to hear.
Any peripheral suggestions would be appreciated as well. :)
Thanks for reading and for any help !
