If you wanted you could even do an m-ITX build.
PCPartPicker Part List
I'd go for 3200 MHz RAM as that motherboard doesn't support 3000.
I'd probably replace the PSU at the same time as the upgrade. Other than that, looks good to me. :-)
A $7 monitor seems pretty sketch. The cooler on that 570 isn't a good one.
Do you really need two M.2 drives?
Your build looks good but your RAM and SSD aren't particularly cost-efficient.
If you were interested in min-maxing your build you could get a pretty significant GPU upgrade.
The build looks decent. The only thing I'd really change is the GPU - that one seems overpriced, and the cooling solution on it isn't very good anyways.
This is what I would do. Most of your parts are still quite relevant, and this way, you get a pretty significant GPU upgrade and some room left over to possibly pick up a second, higher refresh rate, monitor.
I wouldn't really go with either of those builds tbh.
The RTX 2070 doesn't support SLI/NVLink, which is why it made you add the second one manually.
Either would work. I'd go for either the SU800 or the Scorch depending on whether you want NVME speeds or not.
Looks pretty good. Here's a mildly altered build - 2700x instead of 2700, cheaper NVME drive, and a better PSU.
360mm liquid cooler on a locked i5? Talk about overkill!
Here's a list I put together. And there's also a prebuilt that's pretty similar that would likely suit her needs, which I'm leaning towards suggesting. Thoughts?
Where's the link? :-)
Why such an expensive motherboard and cooler for a locked chip? And the 9400f only supports 2666 RAM, so that's a bit of unnecessary spending too. Change those things and you can get a 2060 for cheaper, and have a little bit of overhead since you're playing on max settings.
Since you have an mATX rig:
That's fair. Expansion card options tend to offer better WiFi than motherboard solutions though, and that would still allow you to save a little.
The reviews on NewEgg are for all six Gigabyte options and the reviews on PCPP average out to 5 stars. I'm not worried about suggesting that option.
Why the Z390 motherboard? And the 3600 mHz RAM when the CPU only supports 2666 anyways?
Why the Z390 motherboard?
A water cooler doesn't belong on a 2200g.
The 9400f would be a good choice - since you're only shooting for 60 FPS you may even want to consider a 2600.
Yes, the 2060 would be a good compromise between the 2070 and the 1660 ti. More demanding titles will be a bit of a struggle for the 2060 at 21:9 1440p, though.
The two DVI port requirement is a bit of a killer for you as that'll limit you to some of the last gen gen cards. Although, it does mean buying used could be more of an option.
Pepperidge Farm remembers when a quad core i7 was the go to setup for streaming.
It's okay but you can do better for price.
It makes up for it with the increase in number of cores.
It changed to allow better multi core performance but the game engine still performs better with the lower latency of the Intel CPUs.
The budget is supposed to include a monitor, too.
It looks like overkill to me, assuming you're planning on playing at 1080p. Those games are relatively easy to run and recommended specs is just a 1060 for Last Epoch or a 1050 ti for Path of Exile. Stepping down to a 1660 or 1660 ti would free up plenty in your budget for an Intel CPU to better your design software experience.
Well, WoW prefers Intel and Nvidia chips so that's the route to go if you're still open to it, IMHO. You can fit an i5 into your budget pretty easily so you don't have to go with the i3.
