In a couple of weeks, when I get my tax returns, I'm gonna buy a new PC. I'll probably order it from komplett.no, a Norwegian web site, which gives me the option to choose parts, and then they'll put it together. This is what I'm considering, and I'd like some opinions about it. What I'm looking for, is general advice, and if some components have issues you know about, please tell.
If you think I should replace a part with something more expensive, that's ok. I'm not going anywhere this vacation, which means I can afford to spend quite a lot on this. And since I'm spending a lot, I need to know that I'm getting a good rig.
Please note that the parts I don't need advice about, are already decided and are unlikely to be subject to change. This has to do with limited selections for certain components at the mentioned web shop, and it's obvious what I have to choose. But in case you wonder, or need know to consider how well it all will work together, these are the main ones:
So here's the list of what of what I'm considering:
CPU. I prefer AMD over Intel. This 8 core AMD looks great, but is it?
GPU. I want one that lasts for a while. I'm thinking of the first one of these 2 cards, but should I go for the second instead? The price difference is just below $100, but I'm willing to pay that if it's worth it. Btw, the second card is the "double dissipation edition".
SSD - what to choose? To be honest, I don't know much about these, except that they're fast, so I'll get one for the OS. Will probably choose a 120 or 128 GB version of one of these, please advice:
RAM - probably this one, must be at least 16 GB, or should I got for 32? Price difference isn't that big.
Motherboard - will be one of two, help me decide:
Any advice, particularly about SSD and one of the two motherboards, will be greatly appreciated.
Almost forgot: I'm not going to overclock anything, so there's no need to consider that at all.
