Hello all,

UPDATE: Fixed link

It's five years to the day (I didn't plan this but how ironic!) and I'm looking to replace this system.
(https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/recommendations-on-new-system-build.2446425/). I built this system on the advice that was given and it has served me well. I still have the same needs as last time: I do a good a mount of streaming and video editing with some light gaming. The over all goal is to build a system like before but with updated parts from the 2015 build.

CPU: Min i7
Motherboard: Open to suggestions
Memory: Min 32 maybe 64G
Cooling: I updated the system for a water basted one so I'll probably go back to that.
Case: I have been using cooler master cases but open to something different if it makes sense.
Graphics Card: I now have a triple monitor setup so it needs to at least support that, stream and game

As mentioned before, I live near a microcenter and can drive there locally to pick up if needed.

Thanks and I'm looking forward to a new build!

Ick! A 22" monitor has no place with a $2.5k build.

Just a slight update I'd like to use all new parts. So, sorry for now being clear, I don't want to upgrade this system, I'd like to build one based off of what I had before.
