Budget: Around 800usd (a bit more is okay if needed).

Aim: Gaming (60fps)/Univsersity/Maybe some coding in the future (Microsoft Visual Studio f.e). (Currently studying engineering)

Monitors: 1. 22" LG IPS FULL HD (1920x1080).

Peripherals: Mouse and Mech. Keyboard.

Extras: NO OC / NO VR GAMING / NO 2k,4k,8k Gaming / NO RENDERING / NO EDITING/ NO STREAMING

I have the: Storage (1tb HDD and 240gb SSD) + GTX 970 + W10 64, already from my previous setup and if I upgrade I will keep them.

1st INTEL: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/m6JCYr

2d AMD: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wYgX8K (it has a better ram speed due to AMD benefit with it)

I'm not convinced with the AMD beacuse of the performance in games vs Intel. I want some opinions, and if you want to suggest some changes, please give some reasons for it. 8th gen is near, I know, but I'm not intereseted in having the last beacuse it is almost the same as 7th.

I know that I can have some rgb troubles with Tridentz RGB memory on MSI mobos (they were realased for ASUS mobos at first), in that case I will put: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ntYWGX/corsair-vengeance-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3000-memory-cmr16gx4m2c3000c15 (3200 in the case of AMD)

I don't worry about the extra usd between them, so only consider performance in games and how many years I can use this rig.

I'm not sure about if Intel vs AMD in your case, however if you were to go for AMD you could save a few moneys by using the cooler than comes with the 1600 CPU. It is more than capable especially if you're not going to OC or only do minor OC'ing.

"I'm not sure about if Intel vs AMD in your case"

You mean I have to choose the Intel setup?

Intel is slightly better, if you are really gaming most of the time

No, I mean to say that I don't know which is better in your case - to go with Intel or AMD. :)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 3000 RAM kit won't run at that speed on a H270 mobo. You'll need a Z270 or 2133/2400 RAM.

I know it will not run at 3000, the mobo will downgrade the speed to 2400.

I chose that RAM beacuse there is no 2400 version of the RGB series, so the 3000 is the first one wih RGB light.-
