    Posted: 08 Jul 2020 at 6:46pm
Budget:
Budget is pretty open 3-5k, more if I'm picking up different monitors for better accommodations

Expectations:
Honestly what I'd like to do is take the recommended requirements for Amazon's New World game and if/where possible double the things that make sense and the system that can be handled.

Usage:
Gaming, and when possible I'd like to be able to run a 2nd monitor for twitch streaming

Special Needs:
possibility to upgrade GPU's, ram if necessary during the life of the machine(4-5yrs, hoping for closer to 5)

Saved Ticket #: no ticket as of yet.

Specifications:
These are the game recommended specs that I would like to reasonably make improvements to where possible

CPU - Intel® Core™ i7-2600K, AMD Ryzen™ 5 1400
GPU - NVIDIA® GTX 970, AMD Radeon™ R9 390X
Mem - 16GB RAM
Disk - SSD
OS - Windows®10 64-bit, DirectX 12

Here is a starting point for a discussion. Others will disagree but here is a starting point.

https://www.digitalstorm.com/configurator.asp?id=3236888

I didn't add a bling factor other than the case fans, which carry a 5-year warranty. I did put in a Stage 2 water cooler for you. Your price is well under $3,000.00, monitor excluded.

You could go up a step in motherboard for about $240.00 or so, but I don't think it necessary. I also just put in 16GB of RAM and put in a 1TB NVMe M.2 card. You could go with a 500GB version and add a 1TB SSD, but for now I put in a 2TB HDD as the other storage.

Go play with it and others will chime in with their thoughts. But do make sure you tell us what you want the computer for and what you think. Whatever you get will be a huge upgrade from what you are currently running.

It would appear something went wrong with John18's configurator build. it doesn't have some of the features he says. (The NVMe isn't there and no blingy fans for example).

I'm all for saving money where you can, but your budget allows for for some extras you might like.

You build a gaming rig around the video system first. You need to decide where you want to be with that. 1080p (1920x1080 resolution) at higher refresh rates is the price/performance super star IMHO. GPU/monitor pairing can come in as low as $600. The next step up is referred to as 2K, or 1440p gaming at 2560x1440 res. A high-refresh monitor paired with the right GPU will START at over $1100. (27" monitors go $500 and up.) 4K gaming at high frame rates is still a pipe dream, and STARTS over $3000. The most over-rated hype in gaming, you would be very hard pressed to see the benefit of that small fortune unless you had two systems side by side on 40" screens, and then you would probably choose the 1440p at higher refresh. So, absent that info from you, it's guess work.

That said, I'd recommend the following at your budget. The good news is, you have plenty left for a high-end monitor or two. This comes in at $2778 after discount:

Right now, CPUs are way overpowered for gaming, so you have absolutely no need of the 10900 CPU. The 10700 is just as fast, and the extra $ spent on more cores does nothing for you. This CPU, if it lasts, will game well for 8 years or more.

You could spend more on a Maximus Hero mobo, but you don't need that as John18 said.

32GB of RAM with bling is in your budget, and will always be enough.

850W PSU for all the overhead you need.

512Gb NVMe SSD (5x faster than SATA SSDs) for OS, apps, and maintenance software, maybe your favorite game or three. Lean and mean for really fast system scans.
A fast Samsung SATA SSD for secondary storage. All you need right now, and by the time you need more, they will be a lot cheaper. Easy upgrade.

A 2070 SUPER assuming you want to go for 1440p monitors. It will do all you want: good frame rates, dual monitors, streaming no problem. Spending more would just be silly since a whole new line is coming in the Fall. You won't need to upgrade, but the option wouldn't cost so much.

Dual fan CPU coooler.

Internal lighting and the blingy fans look really good in the Lumos. Getting over $3000 means $100 of the fans is paid for.

Mild overclock which you don't have to have at all for outstanding performance. The CPU is designed to take it.

Hope it helps.

Thanks John and Cretae. I'll prob stick with the 1080p res for awhile, for me the difference isn't enough yet, maybe I'll see it eventually.

I completely agree with you! My 10 year old 1080p 60 Hz gives me all the visual fidelity I can use, and I'm reluctant to spend the big bucks for what may turn out for me to be minor gains.

For 1080p the RTX 2060 SUPER is an excellent card that will deliver high frame rates whenever you need them. You might get by with less, but that card will give you enough extra overhead that it will not falter in dual monitor streaming.

The only monitor/resolution that I would add here his 3440x1440(34" which I have) or even a 5120x1440 (if you want to go 49" lol) UW. I would go w/ at least a 2080 super with an ultrawide if you want to push higher FPS (my 2080Ti does around 115FPS w/max settings in CoD: MW)

Ultrawide Isn't for everyone but I will say that I love my Alienware 34". It is not a crazy curve and the extra screen real estate is nice when doing work.

At 1080p I absolutely agree with Cretae on the 2060 Super!

I also have that Alienware 34" curved 3440x1440 monitor. Mine is run by an RTX 2070 Super and I get 70 to 115 fps on high settings in DCS (i7-9700K). It is a great monitor, for both work and play.

Nice! I have the same one and the Acer Z35P. Good to know on the 2070 Super. I normally just hit ultra settings and then dial it back when needed lol.
