    Default Is this the year for a new Intel build?

    Hello everyone!

    I am finally retiring my last build "Prowler" and I am starting to seriously look at my next build. A lot has changed since those days while my thirst for performance has only strengthened. So as I start to get a feel for what would work best for me in this next build I came back to where it all started for me. Seems to be a little dusty around here. So what's going on folks? Where are the new builds? What are people liking and trying to get the most performance out of now a days? Looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to!

    no easy answer imho . a lot of variables but for gaming the min id say is something along this line https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16814126192

    max imho https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16814487336
    there is so many choices today id say let your budget and common sense be your guide . I always look or the fastest card I can afford that's not obviously over kill from Asus or EVGA because ive never had a problem with their products and service . I prefer Nvidia but thats just me .

    you will need a new water block or your cpu . there (in my opinion) is no need to water cool anything else in the system . look at ek water blocks or heat killers . I like the ek full copper blocks . just make sure it supports socket LGA 1151 but I believe its will support all new sockets

    Seems more and more these days that people just take info and go. No discussion, nothing

    I would like to build that computer but I cannot justify the price. Could spend a grand but that is about as far as I would want to go.

    BTW anyone overclocking any more?
