Quiet and Good Cooling, a Scythe Mugen 5 or Dark rock pro 4 are very good to take into consideration.

I'd wait for the new 9 series Ryzens. The 8 core ryzen beat out the 9900K, the 16 core ones have got to be better right? :)

That looks good. What is your max budget?

Also, instead of the 1070 buy a 2060, they have the performance of a 1070 Ti for around 350-400$.

You also want an SSD.

Trust me, you do NOT want to build a PC without one these days xD.

Are you using solar power? If so, Great Job helping the environment. If not, then I think an investment into a power supply is in order :).

Otherwise great build, but a better CPU cooler (see: Kschendel) would work out and maybe keep the PC from setting on fire.

2 things,

One, what games are you playing (my specialty)

Two, Looks good, though for your type of work a 1700 or 2600/2700 would be better, as the 1600 is an older CPU with only 6 cores and a low clock speed.

Make sure the fans are in a push pull config, one should have the sticker pointed INWARDS, one should be OUTWARDS.

That may help, you don't want it to be pulling where there is no air or pushing where there is already air.

This is good, but doesnt have any peripherals on it.

TBH I would wait for the new 3rd gen Ryzen chips to come out, they are supposed to be really good and really cheap.

If you need the PC really soon, this is a great build to go for:

2 things, Y 2 mice and keyboards? Also, go for the Zowie SC2, great mouse, and the ducky/vortex with MX brown, they are of higher build quality.

You only need 1 240HZ monitor for gaming, the other ones can be 60HZ IPS panels that look really nice :).

TBCH IDK how you are going to afford this.

Mebby you live in the box it comes in? Good Luck anyways =)

Well, the GPU is sufficient, but if you want better performance at 1080P then it is definitely not the way to go.

I'd recommend the 2600 over the 1700, but whatever you want ;)

You dont really need the cooler for the 2600, it comes with one that is more than adequate for a gaming PC.

the 1660 Ti is better for stream/recording/editing and stuff like that, just FYI. :P

It might last awhile, but that will not be good for any gaming above 1080p at low- med settings, unless ur playing CS:GO, then u get all the FPS u want.

you "fit" a titan for 650$ over budget.

OP, you can buy RGB and put it on the titan?

Anyways the 2080Ti can do 4k 144hz, the titan is BARELY faster that the 2080Ti and is 100% not worth the performance increase.

Movies are Easy, and yes, of course you can keep the GPU, Good CPU's for mid grade are the 2600(ryzen) or 8400(intel). Though waiting for 3rd Gen ryzen is good.

That's a pretty good rule, though the 570 is a great card, to play modern games though a newer GPU would probably hold up for longer

If you know what I could get for it, could you also please provide a build along side it for around 50-100$ more than the sell price?

Only the Ram, MOBO and CPU Btw, already have storage and GPU.

OOF that CPU bottleneck thooo. :P

The luxe looks nice, but that is very expensive; A nice budget case is the H500 for 75$, For a more expensive case the O11 Dynamic is great for airflow.

To get more fans a better MOBO would be recommended, just a cheap great combo to go with would be the 2700X with the MSi b450 Tomahawk for 400$, for a total of around 500$ worth of upgrades.

The 2700 is 130$ cheaper than the 2700x and you can OC it, so why not? The GPU is for a future purchase, so this comes in at just below 1000 NZD.

Looks like your budget is around 2.5k, your build is good but that ram is Soooo overkill and you could take that and use it for 32 gb of cheaper ram and upgrade ur GPU or CPU.

Not too bad but you want an Intel processor like the new i7 or i9 for that type of build. The Bottleneck between the GPU and CPU there is crazy, and a 1700 doesn't really cut it for the 2080ti.

With the last part no. Building a PC is always cheaper than buying a prebuild. For BF and CM, you want to set aside at least 4 or 4.5k if you need peripherals etc.
