    Usage - light gaming now, looking to up play more sim racing next year more of the day. GoPro editing, Rekordbox (DJ software) and some light CAD.

    Ideally:
    32gb ram
    Decent cpu
    1tb ssd or nvme
    Average gfx that will do for a year then looking to upgrade to a ‘70 or ‘80 card unless something decent can be bought within budget to save buying ppptwice?
    Nice basic case - nothing whacky.
    Wired keyboard and mouse (nothing fancy).
    Happy with a traditional cpu cooler to keep cost down.
    DVD drive for burning discs.

    Pc will connect to nas so no need for additional storage.
    No need for windows or office.
    External usb soundcard will be used (already purchased).


    Pc will be used for a long time in to the future so an emphasis on reliable parts over performance.
