While you do sacrifice a little regarding color reproduction, you get a decent size, high res, and mostly meets the $300 budget: LG 27UD58P-B 27 IPS 4K UHD Free-Sync Gaming Monitor

4K on a 27 inch is the extreme on the other of the scale and you have to sit pretty close to it when the PPI is so high at 163,18
I would consider 1440P on a 27 inch to be a better balance its not too low like say 1080P on a 30-32 inch and not too high like 4K on a 24-27 inch

Since the OP wants a build for work more than gaming i want to ask is 60hz not good enough if you will be working more than gaming?

Newegg has an open box Asus PB278Q which is a 27 inch IPS panel monitor for $298
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...294R-_-Product

It is only a 60hz but its an IPS panel monitor which means far better color reproduction than you get with TN

Another vote for AMD. You get more cores for less price than Intel. Don't get an i5 they suck. For the same price you can AMD 2600X 6 Cores/12 threads.

Don't be "loyal" to Intel, they did nothing to deserve it. AMD is catching up to them very quickly and gaining share all the time, and Intel has had bad 2019, and outlook to 2020 as well they are stuck on 14nn process.

Personally i would not consider Intel too much if i where on a budget and while loyalty is fine dont let it blind you into buying something worse and more expensive just because brand x is slapped on it so keep an open mind
I'm definitely open to AMD. Again, I'm just not familiar with they hardware.

They have almost caught up to Intel and are actually ahead in some ways and they offer better bang for buck so yeah AMD is often a better option these days

OP has a microcenter nearby. For the same price of that r5 2600k and that b450 tomahawk, they can get a r7 2700 and a x470 aorus. Also that 580 can be had new for $160 ar.

Wait if you can. Ryzen 3000 is just around the corner (7nm), and AMD said they would be unveiling their next GPU lineup based on 7nm in December. We can expect Intel and nVidia to counter their offer and reduce prices. Better performance from AMD, or better prices from Intel/nVidia, make it hard to recommend buying right now. Computer technology has been stagnant for a while, and Moores law (or observation), has long been pronounced dead. Waiting for a couple weeks/months for a good system could certainly be worth it.

If you must buy now, consider AMD. I know this is the Intel thread, but Intel hasn't really addressed the Spectre vulnerability that is baked into their silicon. Some software mitigations exist, all of which are performance hindering, and many of which cause system freezes and have been pulled for general use. In practice, AMD's current offerings are slightly behind Intel's in terms of performance. AMD motherboards also tend to be ~$100 cheaper (based on prices from 6 months ago), so for the slight performance increase you get with an Intel processor, you would have been better off spending that money on a GPU, PSU, or saving it for your next computer build in the future.

I am so jealous of people who leave near Microcenter.

It might be newer, but it's not better than a G2. The G2 is a top tier PSU, superior to the G3 which is a tier lower.

Not that it really matters that much though. It's splitting hairs really since they're all more than good enough... One benefit of the EVGA (either the G2 or the G3) is that you get a 10 year warranty, rather than the 7 year warranty that the Seasonic has.

You're right if all that is true. Prices on Newegg were a lot lower than on Amazon for some of the parts. I picked Amazon simply because he used Amazon as a reference. If he lives near a MicroCenter, he should get everything there if it's cheaper.
I picked the first best RX 580 8GB that popped up for the list. He can pick any, really, although I generally prefer Sapphire over other brands. They also come at a premium price most of the time though...

What a bunch of nonsense that list is way outdated (even says old version) factually wrong and incorrect on almost everything so its a complete waste of time and its untrustworthy and its garbage

There nothing factually correct about the G3 being lower than the G2 its is an improved version of the G2 not the other way around and the Seasonic Focus has better voltage regulation than the both G2 and the G3 and its often cheaper so thats why i recommend it

Just to show proof of that the G2 has a 0,76% voltage regulation on the 12v rail compared to the G3 at 0,36% and the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold at 0,12%

Moving over to ripple suppression the G2 is doing 15mv at full load on the 12v rail compared to 12,5mv on the G3 and 27,9mv on the Focus so the G2 and G3 are better there but the Focus takes voltage regulation

The G2 is inferior to both the G3 and the Focus and its absolutely huge compared to the G3 and Focus so it does not even fit in many cases with limited PSU room
I am not saying its bad i have one myself and there is nothing wrong with it but there are newer and better options out there some of them are cheaper as well and the linustechtips list is simply wrong

Edit: The only negative about the G3 is its fan noise when used in eco mode
