WIFE SAID I CAN BUILD A NEW PC! Suggestions please! Thanks
Hello! I built my current PC back in 2007 (specs in sig). The only thing different is I am running Windows 8.1 32 bit now.
Its been a good PC, but it's time to upgrade.
For reference, the only (3) games that I really play is WarThunder, BeamNG and iRacing - but my profession is web/graphic/video design, so I need a PC that can handle all.
My big question is, looking below - what parts can I reuse from my old PC? Anything? I think the only thing worth salvaging is the 750W PS, but its not a modular PS so there are wires everywhere. My next build I want to do clean.
Is the i7 series still the latest and greatest for CPU? When I built my rig in 2007 I tried to go all out and get the best stuff, and even after almost 8 years it has held up somewhat well...I would like to do the same with this build.
Also, no 3-monitor setup, so multiple GPU wont be necessary - but I do plan on going 4k monitor.
Would like to stay under $1200 for the PC itself. Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse are seperate budget
