Looking for a new PC build
my current PC is a few years old and very limited in terms of upgradeability (the motherboard doesn't support more than 4GB of RAM in maximum configuration). Therefore I am looking for recommendations for a new PC build. I am currently not very well informed about the hardware that is currently recommended.
- latest generation CPU, Intel preferred
- minimum 16GB of RAM, the motherboard should at least support 32GB
- mid-range graphics card
- SSD with 500GB, 2x 4TB HDD as RAID
- support for Windows 10 and Linux
- Bluray burner
The main use of the PC will be programming in Visual Studio and various other tools. Latest generation gaming is not on my focus right now, but the graphics card should be upgradeable. Maybe using integrated graphics and upgrading to a dedicated graphics card is recommended?
The PC should be used for at least 5 to 6 years without the need of major upgrades.
Thanks for your input!
