    Have you used the builder feature on pcpartpicker.com? Very helpful for ensuring parts compatibility and checking out other peoples' builds using the same parts.

    Personally I would save up and get on the X670 platform, and a larger power supply, to account for future upgrades. Good luck!

    +1 on a good, quality PSU to support your nVidia GPU and future upgrades. Good to have a good foundation, that you don't have to worry about.

    Computer Case. That depends on preference. You already chose an ATX form factor MB... I would choose something that has good air flow and room for expansion. I am used to lots of fans to cool things down, but I am used to white noise.

    For VM Hosting, you said Oracle VirtualBox... But I would look into KVM. I went from VirtualBox to KVM over a decade ago and have never regretted it. So much more that you can do, with lots less problems.

    You said "Work"... You didn't say what field, and any business type programs you need to support, printing requirements. Do you have to do Video conferencing? VPN for remote connection security? Other support for that Job? Or is it mostly WP, Spreadsheets, and correspondence?

    Do you need to connect into your company's infrastructure as a remote worker? Or completely stand-alone? Sometimes with the first, they have their own minimum requirements set in their IT policies needed for that connection.

    4K displays are great if you have to have multiple windows up at a time, but then I had to use a different cursor them because the mouse cursor was so small, I would lose it on the screen.

    Hi all,

    Lof of thanks for your advice,

    I'll use this PC for daily working as well as Home Theatre PC. I need a powerful PC for daily working.

    How to Build a Home Theater PC
    https://www.logicalincrements.com/ar...c-home-theater

    I need a powerful sound card, not the built-in sound card on the motherboard, with audio-out for connecting my Energy subwoofer and another audio-out for connecting my Wharfedale column speakers.

    Please advise. Thanks

    Regards

    I have this card: https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-XONAR-SE...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    I thought about using this: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pipew...rtual-surround
    And using the fiber s/pdif cable, connecting to this:
    https://www.amazon.com/Denon-AVR-S76...1&gad_source=1

    If I had the money to spend on that...
