Intro Hi guys. Within the next 2 to 4 weeks, I'd like to get a new system, and regarding some of the more important parts I'd like to get your opinions and recommendations. I would like to order all my parts from Elektronik & mehr online kaufen | ALTERNATE Online Shop . Every time I made a big PC change, I ordered my parts from them, so for now I'd like to pick parts from this website. Shouldn't really be a problem but if you feel like browsing parts for me, I'll link you to the categories if German is a hurdle for you. Disregard the language/location options at the bottom. They also change the available stock. Also, I will have them assemble the PC for me. I'm not in the mood of messing around with mainboard clips, thermal paste, and cooling/fans, so I'll pay them the convenience of not having to physically set up the PC. I'm not changing my mind on that, just to let you know. I will use their online configurator tool to build the PC. This means they'll "force" me to choose some essential parts I don't actually need, like the GPU. I will go with a cheap one because I'll build a simple work station out of the remains of my current PC. I'll mention that again later.

The 210 will go to a separate PC. I'm not sure if I'll use my current Xonar D1 card in the new system or not. I'll think about that when the rest has been decided on. My main concern is the processor. My Q9550 lasted so freaking long, thanks again for helping me pick this one back in the day. I can't spend a fortune on it, but I do want to play modern games and I want it to last a few years. Is an i7-4790K enough? I briefly considered 8 cores but I don't think I really need them, do I? What sort of cooling would you suggest? Is going for water cooling worth it? If not, is there a cooler you can suggest? I also have no clue what kind of tower I should get. I don't think it has to be a big one, so a medium-sized tower should suffice. I do need at least two additional USB ports on the front or at the top of the tower. I don't need any other ports like audio, Firewire, etc. Currently debating a card reader. I don't use it very often but when I have to, it's always a pain because I currently don't have one. In total, I'm looking to spend between 750 â‚¬ and 900 â‚¬. You can, for the most part, ignore the money aspect at this stage. I'll let you know if a certain part is too expensive for me and we'll find an alternative. Links There's no need to rush this, but I would very much appreciate if you guys could shoot some suggestions my way regarding the parts I'm not sure about yet. I'll post the links to the categories on the website below, so you'll have less trouble navigating it, but I can also look up suggested parts once you've mentioned them if you don't want to browse a German website. Thanks in advance! The links will take you to an overview of the respective category. In the list on the left, you'll likely find a sub-category that might reveal a greater selection if necessary. The search at the top works, too, of course, should you happen to have a specific part in mind.
