    Good time for a new PC build?

    I know y for the last couple of years I've been playing with the idea of building a new machine. I usually end up talking myself out of it by rationalizing that my current setup does what I need it to do. But it's still getting pretty long in the tooth. I was browsing component prices the other day and it appears that memory and SSD / Nvme prices have dropped considerably. This really got my attention. I started adding up in my head what a new build was going to cost and I liked the numbers I was coming up with.

    All I need is a Mobo, CPU, Memory, Storage and Vid Card. My case, pse and everything else is in good working order.

    AMD is getting ready to release new CPU and new X570 PCIe 4 chipset very soon, i am watching very closely, memory prices are falling right now, and Nvme drives are really coming down as you stated.

    PCIe4 Nvme drives are to be here soon with read/write speeds of over 5000GB/sec speeds, cost i am not sure of but am waiting.

    go here and have a look around.........https://hardforum.com/forums/amd-processors.6/

    i may build in winter time

    Almost there myself.

    Current rig works fine but is an older custom build that I've just kept adding on to as normal.

    Have you checked out https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...ilds,4390.html ?

    Lots of good info and comparisons.

    Both newer generation Intel and AMD CPUs are good.. AMDs CPUs are a bit faster for the price (and a bit more power-hungry), Intels have a few more MoBo chipset options available.

    I usually lookup CPU performance/prica at PassMark --> https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html
