It's nearly a new year, and it's time for a new build.
I've done my fair share of hardware upgrades / replacing broken parts in the past, across both towers and laptops, but I have to admit this is the first time I'll be building a PC fully custom. Looking to go for a high-end / high performance build mostly for gaming/development, and planning to build over the next couple of months.
All tips & advice appreciated on config & build! Most of the parts are TBC so far
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 7950x
Motherboard: TBD - will be going for a full ATX motherboard.
Memory: 64GB DDR5 - brand/model tbc, but aiming to get as high speed as possible within consumer ranges.
GPU: Likely RTX 3090/3090TI - but with the option to upgrade to a 40xx series (or 50xx series) in future.
Cooling: Either Noctua DH15 - or potentially an off-the-shelf watercooling kit.
PSU: TBD - will need to be enough wattage to handle the craziness of modern GPU/CPU wattage.
Storage: TBC - likely a mix of existing SSDs I have in my current machine, hopefully at least 1-2 core upgrades with a high capacity SSD. Could stick some HDDs in as well, but would like the system to be quiet as possible.
Case: Possibly Corsair 5000D Airflow (seems to get a lot of good reviews).
All suggestions welcome!
