I will recycle and use my HX1000 for power supply. I may upgrade that later on down the road to save on energy costs.
Does the 3700x come with the same cooler as the 3800x? I am currently using a Zalman 3700 and don't want to go purchasing extra coolers and fans for a new build. Maybe later on I will buy new fans to quiet my system down a bit. PC Case is on old Antec 900. It works for now. No it's not my dream case but it was cost effective when I got it and it still looks ok and does the job. I don't ever think I'll want or have a need for H2O cooling so no extra fancy expensive case will be needed.
I'm not quite on the win10 bandwagon just yet. I'll have to learn more about it. When it was first released every one was dissing it because of how intrusive it is. With out knowing that much about it " as I dismissed it because of that " I am under the belief that no matter how much you disable features of the OS they always find a way to re-enable them with out your knowledge or permission rendering you vulnerable again. It's a big game I don't want to play with my OS atm.

I never fall into a budget category "sorry" I will buy the system one piece at a time month to month if I have to in order to get the best bang for the buck in an attempt to get a good quality system that will last me another 10 years. I know 10 years is a long time for a build to last but hey if you don't overclock like me then the system should last a good while as long as good integrated circuits and components are used on boards chosen. With that said I always like to get MOBO CPU and RAM all at the same time to rule out any defective, incompatible or not desirable murch before return periods expire.
MG729 I tend to keep a lot of browser windows open and also stream youtube videos for music and extra entertainment while playing games etc. I rarely close all the windows before gaming but lately with the G9 380 GPU I have to so my rig does not crash on me
I don't have any monitors yet. I'm using my 65" TV as my monitor atm but plan to get 3 monitors that have high refresh rates and capable of 1440p resolution. not sure what size monitors I need yet to accomplish my end goal. 35's would be nice but use a big foot print so 27's might be better suited. It all boils down to what is going to give me the most realistic feel while siting in the sim Cockpit I have yet to custom build.
I am currently running a Samsung or WD HDD I can't recal atm and am aware that SSD's or what ever the latest greatest fastest storage hardware is atm would be light years ahead as far as data read write speeds. I'm not familiar with pricing of those at the moment and last I knew they are quite pricey for only a little bit of storage. Other concern is storing my game library on the boot OS. I'm not familiar with how to move games from a slower storage to faster and vice versa and keep the game working with out loosing the link the game is suppose to point to in order to run. My biggest fear here is of the unknown LOL.
I mentioned the RTX 2060 Super because of an article I was reading online. https://www.pcgamer.com/best-graphics-card-deals-today/
5. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super
The best graphics card for 1440p and 144hz FHD performance
GPU Cores: 2,176 | Base Clock: 1,470MHz | Boost Clock: 1,650MHz | GFLOPS: 7,181 | Memory: 8GB GDDR6 | Memory Clock: 14 GT/s | Memory Bandwidth: 448GB/s
Great for 1080p and 1440p gaming
Affordably priced RTX features
Effectively replaces the 2070 for $100 less
The best graphics card isn't simply the fastest graphics card, or the cheapest graphics card. Instead, the best graphics card needs to balance performance, price, and features. There are many great graphics cards, but for a great GPU that won't break the bank, Nvidia's RTX 2060 Super is probably the best option. It delivers performance roughly equal to a vanilla RTX 2070 but retails for $100 less.
If you want to play games at 1080p or 1440p on a 144Hz display, the RTX 2060 has the chops to handle most games at close to high to ultra quality. It's more powerful than a 1080 but costs less, and is nearly twice as fast as an RX 570.
For DXR and ray tracing games, 1080p with DLSS often works well, and in a few cases 1440p with DLSS. Don't be shy about turning the ray tracing setting down a notch as well, as in most games so far there's not much visual difference between ultra and high quality DXR modes.
