Hey Setsul and other PC building enthusiasts. I'm planning on getting a new PC and I was wondering if you can give me some advice and maybe hook me up with a build you think fits my needs.
So basically the plan is to come up with a build and then send it to a store I know for them to build it for me, the budget should be around 5000-5500 NIS which is ~1300-1450$. One problem is that the price and availability of components might differ from where you look parts up, thus making my budget worth less then it would be in $.
I would like you to try to fit the budget in $ and if there's a component that isn't available for me or that costs a drastically different amount for me I will write back to you after seeing your idea for the build.
My needs for the PC are mainly:
1. Gaming - Including but not limited to Overwatch, Rocket League, GTA V, etc. In which I would like to get good performance on pretty good settings.
2. School work and programming (probably not really worth noting here but whatever).
3. Overall casual PC use and video/stream watching.
4. I might branch out in the future to other sorts of activities/hobbies involving PC use.
Now some things regarding the components I would like to learn about and get advice either from you or from sites you know and can link me are:
1. How crucial is the difference between i5 and i7 CPU's and what comes in factor when choosing between them and between different models.
2. Getting a HDD storage + a SSD or just a SSD.
3. Monitor - My current most likely purchase is the Benq xl2411z, and then using my current Samsung S24C350 as a second monitor, though I don't know much about the different types of dynamic frame control and screen taring fixes such as G-sync/S-sync and about the rules of dual monitors, so I would like to get advice on that too.
Budget for monitor is around the price of the xl2411z, and I am looking for around the same level of specs for it as well.
Thanks a lot in advance and if there's anything else I can do to help you help me or anything I should know tell me.
P.S. Regardless of how much I benefit from asking here I just want to say I really appreciate the effort and support you give for people here.
