I know this is the Intel section but you should really consider going for a ryzen 3600. Slightly faster single core and way better multi core(12 threads vs 6).

Also there are better coolers at that price range and way better ones if you spend just a little more

The Samsung 970 Evo is way overpriced and any of these are almost as good and way cheaper
https://www.overclock.net/forum/355-...2-toshiba.html

The PSU is mediocre and not worth buying so replace it with a Seasonic Focus Plus GX or a Fractal Design Ion+ or even the a Corsair CXM if you are on a budget

The CPU cooler is more than 10 years old so its ancient and it was not very good even when it was new besides that its overhyped and loud so ditch it and replace it with something like the Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power just note that its 170mm tall

But why are you even buying Intel AMD is actually better in many areas so did you even look at AMD parts before this?
The GPU you picked is IMO ugly as sin and a Gigabyte Windforce OC card is cheaper

I will look at AMD again, maybe I can find a reason to switch after I check benchmarks, but for now, Intel i5 is what I like.

Edited...

Wow, you guys are correct, the AMD Ryzen 5 2700x completely owns the i5 for just a few dollars more!

Uh, in what world does 2700x owns i5 in games. Motherboard is garbage, PC case is an oven, PSU is an overkill and in a pointlessly high tolerance class. Go for Ryzen 3600 on some MSI B450 board anyway. About PSU - search for Seasonic GX or Corsair RMx 650W units, paying more money than these units brings nothing to the game but higher costs.

The PSU is massive overkill a 650 watt is more than enough power 860 watts is just throwing money away for no reason and a good 650 watt is around $100-110 on newegg even less for a CXM

Edit: you dont need cooling paste by the way the cooler comes with some

- Replaced i5 with r5 3600. It is simply a better CPU and better platform at better prices.
- Changed the RTX 2070 with the 5700XT. Performance is practically the same for less money. Unless you really want to have RTX, which is only used in a handful of games and tanks performance, the 5700XT is simply the better choice.
- RAM is practically the same.
- Increased SSD size from 500GB to 1TB. 500GB really is not enough for games anymore, considering the average game is close to 50GB in size nowadays. 1TB is the bare minimum
- Changed PSU. Yours is technically superior but for practical purposes it really is unnecessary.
- Changed the case. It has better cooling than the one you picked, although taste also plays a role in this, so, feel fry to choose another one.
- Did not include any aftermarket cooler. AMD's stock cooler is fine, unless you're going to overclock immediately. If you are, I suggest the Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B.

Listen to this person. Best 1440p card on the planet. Get the Sapphire version if like a better cool, but the Pulse's does a decent job.

The Seasonic Focus GX is far better and is the same price on Amazon so there is zero reason to pick the RM its worse
https://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-GX-7...tronics&sr=1-1

The 650 watt is still more than enough and its $15 cheaper

Corsair RMx has individual rail regulation, so if anything - I'd say it's a better choice.
