New System

So, I am in a desperate need of a new computer, as the one I'm using now is too slow for me now.
And I'd like some help on what should be in there.


Approximate Purchase Date: Wednesday, next week.

Budget Range: $2000 in total.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video Editing, Modeling, Graphics designing, Browsing internet, watching movies/series.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Everything (Motherboard, CPU, RAM, GPU, PSU, Case, Cooling(fans/watercooling))

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Well, seeing as I'm from Denmark, preferibly a danish website, however that could be problematic for you people who do not understand the language, so Amazon.co.uk will do just fine, ships to Denmark as well.

Location: Denmark

Parts Preferences: I definitely do not want AMD or ATI, but that's about it.

Overclocking: Maybe (most likely not)

SLI or Crossfire: At first, I will start off with just a single card. But maybe in the future.

Your Monitor Resolution: 2x 1920x1080 24"

Additional Comments: I'd like a quiet PC, really good performance, 8GB Ram is not enough for me.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Been running with a bad system for quite a few years by now, and now that I feel I have the money to get a good system, I'm going for it.


Thanks in advance.

    Main thing would be gaming, but I also do Video editing, modeling, Graphics designing, plan on recording/streaming

    Right now, I've been living around 6 years with always having some bad systems, and I've had enough of that.
  3. I still could use some help on this.

    Thanks.
  4. Bump? :\

    Thanks for telling me.
  7. This should be good I think.
    Wasnt sure if your budget meant in pounds or american dollars. I also factored in the cost of water-cooling the rig.

    Part Picker is a bit wonky outside the US, so a bunch of parts wernt appearing on Amazon which actually were. So I had to add them in as custom parts.
