Hi Everyone,

I am wanting upgrade my computer, in it's entirety. I am looking to upgrade to last several years (current system is 5-6 years old). The link is to my current system build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yTvgcT

I normally build my PCs myself, however, since my last build I have become legally blind and can no longer build them myself due to the small cables/screws/words/etc. So I am looking for trustworthy places to buy a new custom desktop computer that can handle Windows 11 and the games that I am able to play.

Future & Currently playing games:
American Trucking Simulator
Factorio
Lumberjack's Dynasty
Planet Zoo
Space Engineers
Transport Fever 2

I do have a couple of AAA games on my steam account, but have not yet played so something that could play them as well. Here is my list of games to help determine what I may need: https://steamcommunity.com/id/TrickyNick77/games/?tab=all

Approximate Purchase Date: No date set as of yet (it's at least a few months away)
Budget Range: Not Set
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Reading (emails, scanned documents, etc)
Are you buying a monitor: Yes -- I need 2 large monitors with 1080p (I think 4k might make text too small)
Parts to Upgrade: Everything
Do you need to buy OS: Maybe - I haven't decided if I want to keep my current rig as backup. (I have a non-OEM pro version of Win 10)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference
Location: Orlando, FL
Parts Preferences: AMD CPU, nVidia GPU (or what you all think is better)
Overclocking: No
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: Need a quiet PC, as I tend to keep it on
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Looking to install WIndows 11 and due to my system's age.

For a lot of your games, they are not too demanding but dual 1080p monitors and some of your steam titles, its better not to have something like a GTX 480 but a good GPU. You have a lot of hours on a lot of your games, so I would say you want it to run even better then like a 1080 for instance, so here are my picks for 1000, 1500, and 2000 (The GPU market sucks)
https://nzxt.com/product/the-starter
https://nzxt.com/product/streaming-plus-pc

They are all from NZXT, but are closer to the cost to DIY it, so its one of the best options.I would say the first or maybe second option are better, but if you are planning to create videos, the second and third are made for that for the most part.
 
Location: Orlando
Winchester Computers in Daytona Beach was always a trusted\respectable dealer, builder, support shop around Central FL.

buying locally is almost always a better plan for custom\pre-built systems;
no extravagant shipping for large heavy product.
support is face-to-face, no extra shipping for diagnostics and\or repair when needed.
hand holding through the design or parts picking for those who need it.
etc...

Those NZXT's give me an idea on what I could get, thank you.
Daytona Beach is too far for me, I am legally blind and cannot drive and Uber/Lyft would be way too expensive, however, I will check if they have a website to check them out.

Thank you both for your input.
