Hi everyone, I put together a build, trying to stick with ASUS R-O-G stuff. This will also hopefully be my first one, so opinions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/RCfyMZ (Budjet 1500 USD)

Also, I couldnt afford a good g-sync monitor, so I added a freesync one, Hoping I can get freesync working on my 1660 TI. Does anyone know how? I saw they recently added this feature.

The MSI Tomahawk and Carbon are better boards.

You don't need extra thermal paste. All coolers come with thermal paste.

You can a get a 500GB SSD for that much.

Way too much for that GPU. You can get a 2060 for that much.

The case has questionable looking airflow due to the front panel design. Airflow and temps won't be good in that case.

You can get one that is gysnc compatible/cerfited one for less.

Too much for that PSU, you can get better for about the same price.

Better cooler, better board, better storage, better GPU(assuming this is for gaming), a better case, a better monitor, and this is actually $15 cheaper.

  • Better quality peripherals (no need to spend extra, just for the branding)
  • Bigger amount of storage
  • Upped the GPU
  • Airflow optimised case (meshed front will be better for system airflow)
