Hello everyone

Upgrade by: I don't own a PC only a very old Lenovo Thinkpad L540, would buy everything new and assemble it myself.

Budget: 1000 euros – 2000 euros

Approximate purchase date: at the earliest in a month, at the latest in three months

Use case: Gaming in 2560×1440 (QHD (1440p) preferably with high to ultra settings and high FPS, surfing the web, watching 4K Ultra HD movies, general tasks, processor intensive tasks, graphics card intensive tasks without having to put in much effort give.

Parts to update: None

Buy a monitor: yes/but I would buy that later, budget is for the PC for the time being, but a recommendation would be great. Your monitor resolution and desired frame rate: 2560 × 1440 (QHD (1440p) to 3840 × 2160 (4K UHD-1 (2160p) and if possible a curved monitor from 30 inches upwards.

Preferred website(s) for spare parts? Preferably only sellers from Europe, preferably Germany, to save on taxes and transport costs.

Partial preferences: by brand or type I don't care much about the brand, the main thing is that everything harmonizes and the price/performance ratio is right.

Overclocking: No

Additional comments: I don't need windows and bling, just black without RGB.

I like playing games, action games, first person shooters: MW2, Battlefield.
Open World Games: Elden Ring, Starfield.

Role-playing games: The Witcher and what hardware-demanding games will come in the future.
Software I actually only use winrar and conversion software, etc.

The PC should easily play 4K Ultra HD movies on the TV via HDD, USB or HDMI connection.

For me it is important that I can do several tasks at the same time, it shouldn't be very slow.

For example if I'm watching movies in 4K and unpacking something at the same time or surfing and also converting something complex, just a strong all-rounder for everything without system bottlenecks, but gaming comes first.

In any case, it should have the latest WiFi/Ethernet/Bluetooth/HDMI 2.1/USB Type AC standards/connectors and fast SSD storage, as well as an HDD hard drive with plenty of storage because I want to store a lot of movies on it.

Now I have written down so many wishes, but I only have a small budget, if my wishes can be shaped into a gaming PC that is roughly what I want, I would be satisfied, thanks.

[Mod edit: changed title for clarity from "Want to assemble a strong all-rounder gaming PC yourself, looking for advice on a strong setup?".]

Willkommen im Forum:) :)

Mach dir keine Sorgen. Priorisieren Sie bei Ihren Anforderungen die Stabilität.
Übertakten ist eine reine Freizeitbeschäftigung für Enthusiasten und dient lediglich dem Spaß und der Lernerfahrung – der Aufwand und die damit verbundene potenzielle Instabilität bringen kaum einen praktischen Nutzen.
Thanks for Welcome and Answer, it's good to hear over locking is not a must:)

Maybe I'm not cool anymore, but I haven't overclocked a CPU in forever. I've come to realize that it's just not worth the headache and possible issues it causes. Back in the day you had to if you wanted more performance, but honestly now days is it worth overclocking? Maybe someone might have an answer to that.
