Right. I'm looking to build a new Desktop which will be light gaming, video editing, music, programming/coding and multitasking - and basics (email, fb, ect). I'm still using an old system with Vista (yes you read that right) and Chrome's about to be killed off in a few months and I've been wanting to upgrade in years. 4K's a dream but not at this budget I'd say.
Purchase Date; - Within the next few months
Budget Range; £1,000-£1,500 GBP
System Usage; Gaming (GTA V 1440p), live streaming, YouTube and web programming ect
Monitor(s): 1440p Needed - I've 2x 23" 1080's right now. However, the Monitors are 'add-on' and not in this budget but feel free to link some nice 1440p displays if possible (Dual around 23")
OS; Windows 10 Pro (again, doesn't have to be included in the budget)
Preferences; I've always used Intel so would be nice to stick to Intel
Overclocking: Y (don't mind as long as newbie friendly!)
Water cooling Ideally I'd like this with like dyed fluid but never done watercooling builds before only fans, was told I'd be best with sealed-never-to-touch cooled parts?
Other Peripherals No thanks! Got all this stuff new boxed ready to plug and play.. one day! :-)
Additional comments I've looked at pre-builds on Novatech (+ Custom), CyberPowerSystem and other kinda sites but I believe it will work out cheaper to build it myself (which I've done a few times I'm just not so good at putting parts together lol) I've been told a quad-core i5/i7 will likely suit me best as I did think six core i7 but was told it's kinda pointless for the use.
I'd also like an SSD for the OS and some programs around 500GB (if possible can be a little smaller) and a 1/2TB (no Seagate please) hard-disk drive for data.
(I've also posted on another site's forums but not sure if I can post the link to share what others have also suggested? But I guess I can post the ones I saved from the threads... http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/FlexR/saved
