Looks like it's getting to be upgrade time... pimp my rig?

Hey guys. So I slink in here when it's getting time to build a new system and I basically have no idea what's been going on with chips and boards, etc. for the last, I guess it's been eight years, basically since Ivy Bridge was the ****. But y'all have always super helpful and I always ended up very happy with the results. So if it ain't broke...

So my current system is an Asus p8z77-v deluxe which I had to get off ebay to replace the previous 1155 board which fried. Apparently it came with a dead memory slot. It's got an I5 2500k 3.3 in it. Running an Nvidia gtx580, the replacement for which, a gtx1660 ti xc, will be arriving sometime today. Bascially I'm slowly making moves to upgrade as painlessly as possible. So if it works in my current rig I'll get that first. But I think that's just the drives and the video card. I haven't the faintest idea what board to get, or even what to look for. Who's winning on chips these days? Intel? Amd? I tend to be an intel guy, but by no means a loyalist. As far as costs, I usually go for the tier that's priced to sell with decent longevity, a rung or so below the really badass stuff.

Probably want to pick up extra cooling too. Want to avoid water if possible. I saw a demo on an air cooler a while ago that boasted being comprable to water.

Oh, also the case was intenteded to be the last case I ever bought, a big ole Corsair 800D. But it came just when usb 3.0 was coming out so I have some weird cables coming off it that I never knew what to do with.

Anyway, any suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Getting a little excited at the prospects!

Phanteks P400A or Fractal Design Meshify C are good popular case choices, throw in whatever you want and add your storage and ezpz.

Just don't go for the P400 or P400S, they have solid front panels and are garbage for airflow. Go for the P400A or move up to the P600.

Thanks!!! That's exactly what I was looking for!

Two quick questions. I forgot to mention that my current build has a Seasonic x750, which I got hoping to future proof somewhat. Also is there any reason I can't continue to use the Obsidian 800D case?

the X750 is 10 years old at this point, I'd probably replace it even if it works but you can if you want.

if you don't care about front panel USB Type-C or 3.1/3.2 then you can reuse your old case.

I'm a fan of Intel chips and his suggestions beat any of my ideas for someone who wants a strong performing computer, with the likely longevity of your current system, at a good price.

I approve of this message. Consider Camo Ramo if on a budget though and you can join the ultra cool club.

He throws in a killer mobo too which gives you options to upgrade as your wallet thickens.
