I have about 4,000 USD to sink into a new computer, upgrading from a GTX 1080 with a M5 z170 MSI Mother Board, and 2 1 TB SSD, and a i7 6700k. My question is when is it the best time to start purchasing components? I plan on getting a 2k 144hz monitor and definitely a new GFX card and CPU. I play a lot of demanding games. I already have a Noctua D-H15 so I should be good on at least that and possibly the case, power supply and SSD's.


I'd also like to know what you buy.

I bought a majority of my stuff on black friday but there's always decent prices about for parts, you just need to do some searching. The majority of my bits were Amazon believe it or believe it not, they were coming back with the best prices at the time.

This was also 2 years ago so it could of all changed!

Wait till DDR5 becomes commercial, because everyone will be getting rid of there motherboards.
