Im going to a 2 year program for electronics and computer technology and were planning on building on a computer in the fourth quarter with a budget of 5,000 USD. i wouldnt think we want a threadripper as the computer wont be used for workloads. we have a vr setup too but if anyone could suggest a part list that mainly fills up that budget thatd be nice :)

P.S. pls include a monitor thats fitting with the hardware specs (assuming were gonna get a new monitor)

you mentioned you only be building the PC in the 4th quarter of 2020

i can tell you a lot will change in these months

new GPU will come out, AMD is releasing the 4000 series CPU B550 boards are finally coming. Etc

not to mentioned the rumored RTX 3000 series are coming

so the part list will get outdated pretty fast

Monitor technology and VR arent moving fast so your spanking new 4K monitor or the HTC Vive will not go out of fashion.

i say wait and see what AMD and nVidia will release in the next few months before deciding on the PC build

I think this should be a good build:

What is the use of the PC? Do you need any other peripherals and/or an operating system included in the budget?

I'm not entirely clear on what this is for. Is it a practice build that will be used as a showpiece? Is it a shared gaming PC? It might not be planned for workstation use, but what about server use or virtualization (anything from NAS functions, to handling a number of connected users working on various projects, etc)?

$5000 USD is a large budget and a build can go any number of directions with that kind of cash.

If you want it to be as close as possible, you could use this. It is Asus ROG themed so everything goes together. It has 128GB ram because why not. Didnt include monitor or OS, so those can help you get even closer.

Just curious, why 20G of thermal paste lol. I've lost track of the amount of builds I have done over the years and I think I have gone through like two 4-5g tubes of it. A 20G tube would probably dry up before you used it all.

People who build PC's for a living. Think of a PC repair shop or something.
