Hi
First off i want to say thank you for taking the time to assist today im currently about to buy my new gaming pc, i currently have 2 MSI Optix AG32CQ 31.5 QHD 144hz Monitors im posting the specs heres With the amd vs intel builds ive put together over past few months with a little bit about what sort of things i play and do,
Some of the games i play are

Star citizen
Arma 3
Ark
Escape from tarkov
Gta
Flight simulator 2020 (quite demanding apparantly when released)
DCS World

i also want to introduce the HTC VIVE into my life in the near future
whilst playing i also stream from time to time also now ive done so much research on these system parts and i know usually intel is king in gaming but alot of ppl are also loving the amd so as you can imagine its a tad confusing, i just want something that will run everything i need on max settings with smooth and fast fps whilst also future proofing my plan is to upgrade the ram to 3600mhz later next year with the money if i dont buy the computer the mrs will end up spending some of it so wwnt to buy the rig now and do any upgrades at a later date when needed

I would go a 9900k with a gigabyte z390 master.
Why would you go z390 and cut off any future upgrade path? Anyway I would pick PC 2 because AMD has newer tech and Zen 3 is around the corner for possible upgrade.

Cool your advice was beyond shocking anyway haha

Hey guy let me give you a tip. Acting like a jerk is not the best way to go about getting your questions answered. Since you think you know everything about PC's I am guessing this is more of a "look at me" thread than an actual question anyways....

Pretty good spec. But that 2 TB HDD, and your storage options, look out of place - it's fine for a cheaper or older system, but unusual for a new high spec setup. It's slow, doesn't have much capacity and just contributes heat and noise... If I were spending £3000+ on a new system, I'd have a fast 2 TB NVMe main drive for Windows and my collection of games and a cheap 8+TB HDD for general storage.

Thanks bud the only reason for this is i used to run a similar setup on my old rig I have

500GB SSD - Windows/other

1TB SSD - Games

1TB SSD - My 3d modelling software, 3ds max, blender, substance painter etc

2TB HDD - Pictures, Movies, Documents etc

I do get having to m.2 isnt the fastest but strangely it works “I just thinking if it aint broke dont fix it” Appreciate any and all advice though if u can think of a better idea
