    Best PC components and hardware list (Winter 2016)


    There's a lot of great PC hardware out there. Let's take a look at the best of the best.

    If you're looking to build or upgrade a PC with some new components, here is a selection of the best components unveiled over the past few months.

    This quarter there's a heavy emphasis on storage and GPUs, but we also have a new powerhouse CPU from Intel, and with an excellent curved display from LG.

    If you've got a few thousand to spend, I've also put together a system based around Intel's new chip:

    Here is something a little more modest, Here's a gaming PC for $400:

    And if you are just looking for a storage bump, here are some great value SSDs...

    These stories/slide shows come from UK-based Adrian Kingsley-Hughes. Over the last decade or so, I've found him to be a pretty reliable source of information about "PC kit" as the Brits like to call this kind of thing. I don't always agree with his top choices, but he usually has good reasons for picking what he does. Enjoy!

    PS: To illuminate our differences of opinion or selection, I'm astonished new Samsung 960 NVMe SSDs didn't make this list. They're the fastest form of SSD available right now, and do more to justify upgrading to a 100-series NVMe capable chipsets on modern motherboards than anything else I can think of. Go figure!

    I always find his choices a little odd. Example: for the high-end system, he combines an I7-6950X (Intel's most expensive desktop CPU, if memory serves) with a mini ITX motherboard with 2 DIMM slots. (The socket 2011-V3 CPUs support quad channel RAM.) Not everyone wish to build a massively water cooled system in a box that's a 60cm (24") cube, but this is bordering on just plain nuts.

    Probably should be in a new thread.

    newegg.com has hundreds of mini-PCs available for order. They tend to be listed as barebones, even when they are basically complete PCs (CPU, RAM, HD).

    I know of no roll-up monitors on the market yet. (Or is a "role up monitor" something else?)

    Yeah. But I haven't seen anything that is close to being on the market.
