Question New Gaming System for your review and recommendations


Aug 25, 2010
Looking for a review or alternate suggestion on components. Thanks!

Approximate Purchase Date: This month (Except new GPU purchase based upon availability. We will be using an existing GPU). Also delaying purchase of new monitor until GPU becomes available.

Budget Range: $2000-$2500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Rainbow Six Siege, Warzone, Cold War, Forza, Control, Crysis 3, Valorant, and CSGO)

Are you buying a monitor: Yes, when the new GPU is available.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes & No (I have OEM Windows 10 Home 64 Bit). Is it okay to purchase windows 10 Pro from here?

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: NewEgg, B&H, Amazon. Microcenter is 2.5 hours away.

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU

Overclocking: No
SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Requirement: I would like a quiet PC.
Reason for upgrading: Moving from PS4 gaming to PC gaming.
