Hey all this is what ive currently got.
I am a web developer and am looking at building a home rig. I don't want to spend TOO much and honestly I don't think i'll need to (hopefully). My budget is $700 with an absolute high end spending of $900. I don't plan on doing any gaming. Mainly need to compile Java code, spin up docker containers, possibly some full blown VMs, run Slack, really nothing too crazy.
However I would like this thing to run quick.
What I want to spend my money on most is CPU, RAM, and SSD. So if you have any suggestions on where I could cut some costs, or justify spending more, please let me know!
EDIT: I should note, I run a 34 inch ultra wide 1440p via HDMI, and another monitor off VGA (VGA-to-miniDP plugged into laptop). In the future I would like to upgrade the VGA montior, and get a third monitor. So the graphics card needs to be able to run 3 monitors.
Currently: HDMI & VGA In the future: HDMI & HDMI & HDMI or HDMI & HDMI & (Some other input)
