Hello. My budget is 1500 but willing to go higher if needed. I would like to be able to use a 144htz monitor in the future. I'd like to run current and AAA title games at high settings. I want the build something that will last me. I do not need a lot of storage space.

Hope someone can help me out here, thanks.

the rest can be used for more storage, an aftermarket cooler, or maybe like an os if you need one

Add in an SSD and change the case and this would be a decent build

you do realize that storage is a 1TB ssd right? and cases are all subjective so i usually just slap a medium range one on there

My bad, read that as a 1tb hdd. Though theres the sx6000 pro 1tb for 109, which is a decent NVMe drive that does not exhibit any issues unlike the 660p to my knowledge.

There are much better cases for cheaper though. From the looks of things, that 200r has really limited airflow. Id reccomend the mx330 from cougar instead, as it comes with a meshed front. Another option would be fractal design focus g, which has a meshed front aswell but includeds 2 decent stock intake fans

Ive also noted that particular 2080 is kinda overpriced. id go with https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3J22FT/zotac-geforce-rtx-2080-8gb-gaming-amp-video-card-zt-t20800d-10p instead.

Thanks. Thinking of going with a Ryzen 2700x to try and keep from upgrading things in the future. Is there a reason to go with AMD over besides price? Thanks you for the list

The price to performance for AMD at the current moment is lightyears beyond intel. Intel requires a hefty premium for a small bump in performance. You could get an i5 or something, but i5 processors aren't hyperthreaded and typically don't turbo up all that high anyways. AMD is nice because the stock coolers are good, the performance is great, and their processors across the board are multithreaded. I personally wouldn't recommend getting the 2700X unless you plan on doing some streaming or video editing along with gaming since it's quite a bit more expensive and gives you like 5 more frames than the 2600X in most titles. It's really a productivity processor.

Thanks thinshaw. How much would a better CPU mean with this build? Just learning thanks

not a whole lot. the 2600X is pretty great and graphics cards are the bottleneck in most builds currently. You could get a 2080 ti and the 2600X still would be the bottleneck. You could get a few more frames out of like a 9700K build, but you'd need an aftermarket cooler as well and it's not all that much better

Intel build, and less reliant on MiRs (only $10 instead of $100):

9600k should be good for this purpose

Cooler you can change

MOBO: Amazon will have it back 5/21

storage is $20 less, but still 1TB

GPU is only a $10 rebate instead of $40.

PSU changed to one with no MiRs: PCPartPicker Part List
