Hi all, first time poster. I'm hoping I can get some assistance with buying a new PC please. I've always picked & built my own PC's but am getting old now so will need some fresh assistance.
General information: - I'm after something that will last me. I know that's hard in the hardware market these days, but I've managed to make my current PC last over 5 years by picking the parts correctly and it's been a gem. Still runs good but is struggling with newer GPU & CPU requirements. My worry is - am I getting into the market at the wrong time? What CPU's are coming up? 32 cores? 64 cores? Any new RAM technology? etc.
Compulsory information: - Budget: $3000 AUD - Location: Australia - Use: Gaming - Peripherals required: Keyboard (similar size to a Logitech G15 if possible) - Operating System: Windows 10 Pro
Other possible wants: - Water/Liquid Cooling, something quiet - 1-2 x SSD - 2-3 x Storage HDD - Hopefully not too high on power usage, my old 1000w PSU kills my power bill - RGB colours, or something really cool looking please, example below (https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/520830238184439808/645931040086556682/269326.png?width=840&height=630)
If I'm missing anything, please let me know.
Thank you for your help.
EDIT - I should also add that I've always been a fan of Intel & nVidia, so preference is with those, but if AMD have come past I'm happy to look at their CPUs & GPUs. Thank you.
