Good Morning,

Hi, Eamonn!

Since I'm going to get a new machine myself I've done a research on some components and found these parts being low priced but tough enough for the next maybe five years ...
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, CPU
  • be quiet! Dark Rock 4, CPU cooler
  • MSI B450 Gaming Plus, Mainboard
  • Corsair DIMM 16GB DDR4-3000 Kit RAM
  • MSI Radeon RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC, Gfx card
  • be quiet! Pure Base 600, tower
  • be quiet! Pure Power 10 CM 500W, PSU
I'm going to use my old SSD, HDD, monitor and peripheral devices. I'm aware of the fact that this targeted system is not one of the strongest you could get for the money (with a little more readiness to assume risk I could get an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 and overclock it) but it seems to me that I'll be prepared for possible hardware changes in the future. And this setup will cost me something around 850€ (only?) ...

Frank on his neverending search :doubt:

P.S. The name of my dealer's site is www.alternate.de (German) or www.alternate.co.uk (English) ...
