Folks, I'm out of the loop as far as new hardware goes, but am looking to upgrade my PC for the upcoming Half Life Alyx and Cyberpunk 2077 releases. I also play a fair amount of PUBG, but that game is so buggy and error ridden that I know there's no way to guarantee good performance on any build. I'd appreciate suggestions, particularly on Motherboard, RAM, Processor, air cooling, and video card. Budget: around $1,250 with room to wiggle. If this is unreasonable, please let me know. What's Staying: Silverstone FT-02 case (it's a large case, for those not familiar, will support full ATX mobo size) PSU - Seasonic X750 Hard Drives 27" Catleap 1440p monitor (possibly upgraded to a 4k in the next year or two) What I Need: Video Card: Looking at an RTX 2070 Super, but open to other possibilities. May do VR in the future, so want a card capable of that. Processor/Mobo: On an Intel setup now, I could go Intel or AMD. I want speed and stability. I'm fine with manually overclocking (if that's still a thing, I think there's all sorts of built in turbo-boost stuff built in these days.) Needs to have onboard LAN and soundcard. Cooling: My case should be able to handle any of the major air coolers. Water Cooling not really an option because there's not a place to mount the radiator. RAM: What's the standard for a gaming PC these days? I assume 16 gig minimum, but, if 32 gigs is the standard, then I'm fine with that. I don't really care about RGB or other lighting on any of the needed components as my case doesn't have a window. If you were looking at upgrading under these circumstances, what hardware would you go with?
