I'm looking to take advantage of the labor day sale and configure a high end gaming PC for around $2k. Here is my current config:
I'd like general advice on tweaks to make and also have these questions:
Case - cooling - any reason to get something other than the basic one?
Memory - any reason for getting faster RAM or paying extra for a different brand?
Graphics card - I assume they will just pick ASUS, MSI or EVGA if I choose generic? Worth paying to pick a specific brand?
Hard drive - I struggled a bit here. Having a free NVME drive seemed great and will be faster than a typical SSD drive right? I would have preferred 512MB for my fast drive but getting an NVME one seemed very expensive. Thinking of adding another Samsung SSD. Any suggestions on best configuration for a fast drive and then a larger storage drive?
Sound - I just have a basic 2.1 setup with some klipsch computer speakers. Any reason to upgrade sound?
Other things missing or you’d configure differently?
