Building my first PC, upgrading from a low end prebuilt. Building my first PC and want some Input and opinions. I'm pretty much set on the CPU, Case, CPU cooler, and SSD, if anything is better name brand for around the same price I will accept suggestions. I mostly need input on Motherboard, Memory, Video card, and Power Supply. At first I was planning for a $1000 build but then it got a bit higher, so now I'm aiming more for $1250. I do a lot of Gaming but also usually have other programs running along with it, I don't really play any triple A games with the most graphic demanding game I play being Rust. I will mostly have a lot of tabs open and do stuff like look up things related to a certain game while playing it, I chose the case I did since I hate glass cases and the one I chose was very popular. I chose the CPU cooler I did since it's not as expensive as the $150 but not as cheap as the $30, I need a good CPU cooler since my space isn't well ventilated and I get 73 degrees idle on my CPU. Chose a 2700x since I'm not purely doing gaming so I need to use it for other things. I won't do any editing or streaming at all either. Probably the main things I would want input on are the motherboard since there are similar things for around the price range, 16gb memory for similar price range, input on video card since I have about $100 of wiggle room, and power supply since 650 watts could be excessive to some.
