I swapped you to an RTX 2070 and a 2600 along with faster RAM. More performance for your money.

Otherwise, everything else looked good!

Thanks so much! I see that this could potentially make my CPU/MOBO?RAM all more efficient while bumping up the GPU... and keeping the same price point.

Very much appreciated!

I swapped the Noctua components for bequiet! stuff. They're about the same in performance and noise, but end up being cheaper because you don't need the swap kits to make them look not-hideous.

I also went to faster ram with tighter timings. No, it doesn't have RGB, but both the Noctua, and the bequiet coolers cover the RAM modules anyway, so you're not going to get a lot of RGB goodness out of them I don't think. Either way, it costs about $50 bucks less this way, so if you want the RGB memory under glowing on your heatsink, that is still an option.

I like it a lot.

If you can, swap that 2060 out with the 2070. Otherwise, that looks great.
