I have a 5 year old PC and $1400 (repost because no replies)
>**What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.**
Mostly playing shooters (e.g. Apex Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, CSGO), new AAA Games (Cyberpunk, Halo Infinite etc.) & recording/creating music (using VSTs e.g. Fortin Suites/BiasFX and Reaper as a DAW). Also the occasional use of Photoshop. No 3D Modelling/rendering.
>**What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?**
1000 - 1200€ / ~$1400, I can go a bit higher if needed.
>**When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.**
Preferably around Christmas. Latest would be at my birthday in January. If I have to wait longer for new generations of CPU/GPU, it's fine aswell
>**What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc\)**
Everything except peripherals, a case (current one: Fractal Define R5), monitors, OS & Hard Drives
>**Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?**
>**If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.**
