Budget:
2300 US dollars

Expectations: Id like help on choosing everything else apart from what i mentioned ,if people could build around that and offer like what motherboard would be best etc that would help alot. I am quite clueless


Usage:
Gaming I want to use this rig for gaming , specifically espcape from tarkov and the likes of post scriptum. Im happy to play in 1080p.

Special Needs:
at least an I7 processor , 500 gig ssd , 32 gig ram and 2060 super. I hear the 2060 super is good and i can upgrade later on.

Here you go, $2100 with the discount. Free shipping. You don't need 32 GB of RAM for gaming any time in the forseeable future, but it's in there. With the room in the budget, you could make a small change or two, but this rig is not gimped anywhere strictly for price. It will run great as-is for a very long time.

(Edited to show the highlights)

To see this build in the Configurator, copy the ID# ONLY and paste it into the window that opens when you click "Load Config" in the upper right of the DS main page.

If you wanted to get a LUMOS instead, it would be $116 more for just the case.

The 9700K CPU is equally fast as the 9900K and a better choice for gaming.

16GB is plenty. If you ever found a need for more during the life of this rig, it's just about the easiest upgrade to make. Buy it, plug it into the slots.

If you saved money there, you could easily step up to a Lumos case and maybe even get the Corsair LL Series case fans to really show it off. with everything else the same in the previous build, those two changes would get it up to $2197 after discount. Still inside your budget.

This motherboard will support up to 64gb of memory. The benefit of having more memory than required is non existent. I don't think anyone could tell you the effect of running multiple games simultaneously.You would need to experiment.

I agree with people saying to step down to 16 GB of ram. If you did that you could also bump up the GPU to a RTX 2070 super or just save the money and upgrade to a newer GPU down the line.

As always Cretae's build is great.

Good luck.
