First of all I say HI, I'm new to this forum. My PC starts to get really slow when multitasking, to the point that it gets quite annoying, archiving/extracting combined with copying and downloading almost freezes the PC, plus archiving also takes an eternity and leaves the PC non-operational. So I thought, I have it already since 5-6 years, perhaps now is time to change, as I still have a lot of stuff to do in the future, all my game collections are weekly updated, changed, reorganized and so on. When I then checked when my PC is actually from, I saw that I got it the 10th of May 2010!! So it's already 9 years old. Decision taken, time for a new one. So I was researching and reviewing every single component for the last 3-4 days and came to a conclusion. I wanted to post it here, in case anyone has some suggestions or ideas. I should mention some things first, so that you know why I get specific components. First of all, I use 2 Dell S2715H monitors, which are Full HD only, so no need for any high end GPU. I play 5% of my time on the PC, prefer playing on consoles, thus it's not really meant for gaming, and if I play on the PC, then it's some kind of simulation, strategy game, turn based or real time, or some graphic adventures, well, everything that definitely plays better with mouse and keyboard rather than a controller. I use a lot of multithreading, therefore I want to go with an AMD CPU, was deciding between a Ryzen 7 2700X (8 cores), and a Threadripper 2950X (16 cores). Eventually I decided for a Threadripper, but the smaller 12 core 2920X model. PC has also to be future proof, reason why I don't want too low end components. Price is not an issue, I buy a PC every (apparently 9 years), I'm not the one wanting to change every 2 years or so. So please feel free to comment, give me tips or share your experience. CPU: AMD Threadripper 2920X with 12 cores. Going with this one, as it's still considerably faster than a Ryzen 7, although almost double the price, but still 250€ cheaper than the 2950X. Mainboard: ASRock X399 Taichi GPU: Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56 I probably will change the Vega 56 for a Vega 64, as the shop where I buy it, it's almost the same price. SAPPHIRE Pulse Radeon RX VEGA 56 is 374€ whereas the SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX VEGA 64 is 429€, so quite close. Or for even a little bit more, I could get an RTX2070, considering also that my Dells don't have Freesync, nor G-Sync. The Palit GeForce RTX 2070 Dual V1 and the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 Mini are both 499€ f.ex. Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR4-3200 Quad-Kit 4x8GB Cooling: Noctua NH-U14S Wanted to go with a be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4, but it has one big disadvantage, I goes over the RAM slots, restricting you to 45mm high RAM, and the Corsair I want are 51mm. Could go with G.Skill Trident Z, but they're 120€ more expensive, for same speed and latency. PSU: Seasonic FOCUS Plus Platinum 750W SSD: Samsung 860 Evo 1TB Case: be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 rev.2 (or 601) Still checking some reviews here, wanted to go with the big Dark Base Pro 900 rev.2, as it's the only one where you can still fit an optical drive, which I still will buy, as I have many data BluRays laying around, and ripping will be done. Plus it has USB-C 3.1 on the front, which the other don't have. I'm still looking if I could go with the silent base models 601 or 801. I also have an external BluRay burner, so that's not too much of an issue. Speakers: Edifier C2XD I still have older 2.1 Logitech speakers, and I think it's time to change to something better and more performant, and I have the Edifier 2.1 speakers already for a longer time on my list. Great price/value. Like I said, it's not so much about the price, if I would now spend 500€ more would not be an issue. But I'd really like it to last longer, as I don't change PCs every 2-3 years. Rather spend the money now and be set for a while.
