120 aios have their place and are of course suitable but what im saying is that they are worth the money. A stock cooler is also suitable for non OCed cpus but people choose something else because they are usually ugly. Why buy an unlocked cpu if you arent going to try and OC at least somewhat? And yes the 120 aio would be fine, but for the price, you can get an air cooler that would probably do a better job.

But you're right about the case. I wouldnt get a big AIO with this case. I prefer cases with a mesh front.

I think the general consensus is that 120mm AIOs arent worth the price. mainly just for aesthetics.

NZ = new zealand? whats your NZ budget?

-i went ahead and assumed its new zealand and the conversion on google says its a little under $600 in NZ dollars. trying to use the stores provided on here to create a list is tough. i came close to $700. buying used may be your best option.

in that case keep your ram and maybe keep your cooler if fan noise is a concern. check out the list that mark posted for more ideas.

If this is strictly for gaming, there are a few things that can be addressed. It would help to know what resolution and refresh rate the monitor you will use is capable of, or what your intended resolution and fps target is.

the cooler isnt really necessary, or at least not one that expensive. if you just want it for the aesthetics thats fine.

Your more than likely do not need 32gb of memory unless you are doing a lot fo video editing or something.

you probably dont need that sound card unless you work on audio files or something. the onboard sound should be sufficient for most users.

your list makes more sense now but you can cut back in some areas, like the case. you can go with a meshify c. the psu can go down to a gold 650w focus. a cheaper ssd is an option as well.

not sure about that i9.

i hear the windforce cards run kinda hot but should be fine if you arent going to overclock it. disregarding the heat, they should all perform around the same.

as i said above, it all depends on the games you play and what settings you want. if you want max settings for everything it may not work well enough. your performance would most likely still get you ~60fps but like i said, it depends on the game.

looks good to me. if you want to overclock the cpu though, i recommend at least a better mobo. the stock cooler might be ok for a slight overclock but to push it a bit further, a better cooler would be good.

the 2060 will be pumping out more than 60 frames anyway on 1080p. if you cheap out on the monitor, its just wasted performance. even a gtx 1060/rx580 would pump out more than 60 frames in plenty of games. just depends what you will be playing.

i feel a 144hz monitor with the rtx 2060 would be a fine match. even if you decide on the 1660ti, id still get the 144hz monitor. if you arent worried about that and are fine with 1080p/60, then save money and get a gtx 1660 (which i couldnt find with a price in your area) or an rx580/590

Comment reply on Forum Topic "looking for final advice on my list - first PC"

no the 1070 is still a little more powerful (at least according to userbench https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1660-Ti-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1070/4037vs3609 ) but the 1070 isnt worth the price right now unless you find a deal at around $230(US) or something.

now that I know your budget, I can try and put something else together. It would also help to know the specs of your monitor. you said 1080p but what is the refresh rate? 60hz, 144hz, etc

-Only thing I changed here is removing the dvd which didnt have a price, the 1660ti into an rtx 2060 (which performs like a 1070 but also has ray tracing), and knocked down the power supply down a little to save you an extra $10 but I would go with the power supply in the first build i put up.

you can get the rx580 for close to the retail price of that 570. i think most people dont actually turn in their mail-in rebates and if you do, it takes like 6 months to get the money.

tough without knowing what your budget is. most of your parts didnt have a price so its hard to judge if your build was good. based just on the list, it was fine but getting the gtx1070 new would have probably been a bad buy depending on the price. i made changes to have parts with prices. are you sure you need the dvd player?

dial it back to a ryzen 5 2600x and the stock cooler and you can get a rtx 2070 in there for cheaper. or add a cpu cooler and stay within your budget.

what resolution and refresh rate are/will your monitor be?

I took another look at everything and changed it up to get an rtx 2080 in there. its still ~$200 more though. Would be easier if it wasnt for all the RGB. IDK how well that gpu performs but it was the cheapest 2080. Hopefully someone can drop in their 2 cents on this.

Looks good. You may want to add a case fan or 2. I also always use the full retail version (32/64) version of windows since the OEM version would be locked to the motherboard in use when its installed. Ive heard to people getting MS to release their windows key but it was also a hassle. I always feel its better to avoid all that and just get the full retail version.

If you want to play games in 4k and max settings at 60 fps, the 2070 may not be able to pull it off depending on the game. You may need to get a 2080 or 2080ti

If you are ok not having everything set to max, the 2070 should fine.

he is only using 2 ram modules which should populate the 2nd and 4th slots. the hoses coming off the side of the cpu block should have enough room even with all ram slots occupied.
