Hello fellow SDers, hope you can spare a few moments to give me an advise. Wave

I am running a years old build right now and finally, with Black Friday 2017 approaching, decided to upgrade to more modern build. Here is my current spec:

- Case: Coolmaster HAF 932
- Power Supply: Corsair HX1000 1000W
- Memory: Dominator 3 x 2GB DDR3 (6 Total) Ram
- Motherboard: ASUS P6T
- CPU: Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache
LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor
- CPU Cooling: Cool Master V8 180
- Video Card: XFX R7850 2GB
- Hard Drive 1st: Toshiba 512 SSD
- Hard Drive 2nd: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB Hard Drive 3.5 Inch, 32 MB Cache, 7200 RPM
- Hard Drive 3nd: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB Hard Drive 3.5 Inch, 32 MB Cache, 7200 RPM
- Optical DVD-RW internal CD ROM
- OS: Windows 10 64 bit

My goal is to upgrade the MB, CPU and GPU and I would like to go with the top shelf options. My budget is 1K give or take.

I also prefer not to reinstall Windows if it is possible at all - I would keep my current hard drives.

Also if I opt for the 7700K or 8700K do I need to look into liquid cooling or will my CoolMaster V8 be sufficient?

Thanks in advance for all the input!

Hey man, you're better off asking on the /r/buildapc subreddit, or in it's Discord chat. They'll answer your questions and suggest a build in your budget, if you tell then what you want the PC to do.

Your monitors would be another good thing to add to you spec list. If you're running 1080p@60hz there's no reason to go top-of-the-line & upgrading to a 1440p@144Hz monitor will shave down your budget a bit.

Thank you, my current monitor is 1080 27" Samsung, one of the reasons for upgrade I want to move to either double ultrawides or something massive like U3818DW or LG 38UC99.
