Hey peeps,

I'm from Belgium and I'm looking to build myself a PC soon. But I've got no idea about what parts to purchase.

So my goal with this PC is to be able to play games with good FPS and also be able to install vmware and practiice server adminastration , virtualization.

My budget is around 1500€ maximum.
I was planning on purchasing an i7 and 16GB RAM.



Thanks in advance !

For Virtualization, you would be looking at number of cores/threads, RAM's frequency and size, and HDD and SSD Speeds and sizes. I suggest going with jpe1701's build, and if you can downgrade the GTX 1070 to GTX 1060 6GB (GPUs don't matter when it comes to virtualization, and you will still be able to play the latest and upcoming AAA titles on Max settings with no issue), and put that extra money in 3200MHz RAM, and a better PSU, your build will fit more than your needs.
