Howdy ya'll. I am going to go for my first build on my own.
As I am retired now and have the time, I will try and do a computer build. As I am a greenhorn to this any comments good or bad are certainly appreciated. I have a commercial electrical and electronics background so I feel confident in my ability to complete this task, surely much slower that you "experts'" ;)
I won't be doing any overclocking. I felt an air cooler is darn near as good and less stuff to go awry. I would fill up the case with fans and feel that should keep things pretty cool and quiet. Please correct me if I am wrong here.
Game play is mainly for when my kids come home to roost for a bit....other than that it will be a computer to augment my existing Dell 27 inch all in one with 8 gig nd 2 mb video card that I use daily.
My main concern here is quiet dependability and a big gorgeous monitor. (951c will be ordered the white one it was not listed, same price)
The monitor Samsung CF791 (https://news.samsung.com/global/the-cf791-premium-curved-monitor-a-game-changer-in-the-display-industry) is my selected monitor. I noticed it has embedded AMD FreeSync™ functionality that synchronizes screen refresh rates with gamers’ AMD graphics cards. My question is should I change out video cards? Please advise.
Budget is open and not a major concern. Bang for the buck is what I am after. I would also consider dual cards it it makes that much of a difference.
Thank you in advance for your opinions. I value them and will incorporate them in the next edit. I only replace computers every 5 years or so, and my intent is to build a reliable future proof system that this time will be upgrade able.
I wont be doing wired which is why I selected the best wireless device available.
Once again, thank you kindly for your input.
