Since my ex stole my awesome build 7 years ago I'm now looking to start again. From scratch.
I've been doing a lot of research, but the more I research the more complicated it gets.
I'm looking to build a gaming PC that plays all games on highest settings for at least the next few years to come and monitor to match.
My problems have boiled down to having the best CPU & GPU combo, then everything else pretty much falls into place.
However, with CPU prices varying so much I'm now lost on the best to get.
I've found that more cores isn't great for gaming and that it's best to find the highest speed, so am I right in thinking a 4.2ghz 4-core CPU would be the best for gaming? Could someone help me out on this?
Then to go with that, what is the best GPU to go with it? I'm all for crossfire/sli if that would be a cheaper option or maybe the potential to get a second GPU if future games need it. As in, for now, I just get a motherboard and GPU capable of handling a second GPU in the future.
I would really appreciate some feedback and suggestions on my first build returning to the PC building world after so long out of the loop.
Thank you in advance!
