So... I'm looking to upgrade my PC later this year (I'm thinking late summer, or August range). I've been eyeing #System76, because their cases look amazing, and I can put together a reasonable configuration. The big downside is that - since I'm not in the US - I have to pay the full price up front, can't slice 'em up. Also, they don't have 4k monitors, which is something I set my eyes on for the upgrade.
So I'm looking for some help in figuring out what to buy/build.
The PC will be mainly used for work, but I will want to play games on it from time to time (but no dual booting, I only play either native games, or that run under wine). So a GPU that can handle the games I play is required. But any GPU that supports 4k will suffice, my games are light on GPU. Talking about GPUs, I'd prefer ATI/AMD over nVidia. I suppose that works best with an AMD CPU & motherboard too - which is fine by me, because I'd prefer AMD over Intel anyway.
Memory wise, I have 24Gb right now, looking to upgrade that to 32Gb+.
I don't need neither keyboard, nor mouse, but I do need as many USB slots as I can get my hands on reasonably. USB-C is a big plus, but not a strict requirement. If it has USB-C, I'd prefer to have at least one non-USB-C port, so I can plug my non-C hub in for the time being.
Storage: ~500Gb SSD + 0.5-1TB hybrid is my aim. I have a 4TB external drive for some of my heavy stuff.
Board+CPU are rock solid, it's been 4 months so maybe your budget would be up for a beefier Zen2 CPU if you need more cores. Board+PSU are solid and work, but I should've taken a modular PSU.
GPU is old, so no idea what's current. For RAM.. maybe what's available when type/timing works.
