Question New Build Advice

Nov 29, 2022
I am helping my husband create a new build, and I would love some input. Linked is what I have been looking at:

The only components we have purchased are two monitors and the 2 TB Samsung SSD. Also, open to Intel if it makes more sense, but the Ryzen is cheaper atm.

Approximate Purchase Date: We have started purchasing components already, and would like to complete the build within the next couple of months.

Budget Range: $1500-$2500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming while streaming, coding (mostly front-end dev), possibly video editing in the future (not sure where he is taking this idea yet)

Are you buying a monitor: No, he already has two 27" MSI monitors

Do you need to buy OS: Yes, leaning toward Windows

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon, Newegg

Location: Utah

Parts Preferences: Open to suggestions

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

With your budget it's in you and your husbands best interest imo to wait until Jan. 3rd when Intel releases the locked 13 gen cpu's along with the new B760 DDR5 motherboards seeing how DDR5 is the thing now not to mention the 5900X is outperformed by the older Intel Gen 12 12700 cpu. This gives you a rough idea of what you're looking at cost wise.
