I have $1600 dollars and I want to build a new computer. I have been out of the loop for a long time now when it comes to computer parts, so I do not know what is good right now. Can someone help me figure what can I get for this amount of money. Please include the Corsair graphite 760T, and the Noctua D14 cooler. Thank you.

EDIT: I would like to stick to an Intel chip and Nvidia card.

Do you have those parts already, or need to purchase as well?

What is the goal of this computer, its primary use, and secondary use?

Heres a Ryzen base

A good Intel CPU will cost you a lot more. For that matter, so will a good NVIDIA GPU.

I prefer Intel and NVIDIA too, but still.

As long as it fits in within my budget, it does not matter if it is great or not, it most likely will be better than my current setup.

I think you should just get a GTX 1080 Ti for your current setup, since you have a maximum budget of $1600. Your current CPU isn't that bad at all.

Of course, I would also recommend getting an entirely new 16 GB memory kit and selling your 8 GB kit.

It will be an Asus monitor with a 1080p resolution @60. I have a 4k monitor that I'm using now, but that is staying here.

Well... building a $1600 pc for [email protected] is kind of pointless. I would factor in a new monitor in your budget, either [email protected] or [email protected](or higher), your choice.

Lets say you can sell your old monitor for $100, that leaves you $1700 for a PC + appropriate monitor.

Edit: And do you already own the Corsair graphite 760T and the Noctua D14 or are those parts you just particularly want?

Edit2: Nailed it, right on budget:

Is it possible that you can make that build again without factoring in the monitor? The reason I am not thinking of the monitor now is because I plan to get a 4k LG from my friend sometime next month.

Giles3000 has already done the work for you. The least you can do is visit PCPartPicker yourself and enter them in...

I thought that MSI motherboards were kinda iffy. What about Gigabyte or ASUS? Or are MSI's motherboards good these days?

Don't think I've read much wrong about MSI on Z270, could've missed it though. Just picked the MSI Z270 SLI PLUS because it was the most affordable well featured board that also happend to be pretty nice looking(imo).

@Priest666x I asked this earlier too, but why the NH-D14 and 760T, do you already own them or just want them?

Becuase if you don't own the D14 already I wouldn't recommend buying it now. While it still perform really well, its ram compatibility is pretty bad and it not that good looking(to put it lightly). There are cheaper coolers that perform just as well, have better clearances and are better looking.

The Thermalright Macho rev.B for example: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/4TCrxr/thermalright-cpu-cooler-machorevb

The reason I want that case is because it looks good while having everything I need from a case, as for the noctua, I want that one because it performs like a champ in my current rig that I really do not want to deviate from it, unless there is a cooler that performs as well or even better.

If set on Intel, I would wait to evaluate coffee lake performance and value. I personally would not jump into a Kaby lake build right now with coffee lake around the corner.

You realize if you run the 4k monitor you may be running 30hz? You may want to review that. Some 4k monitors/tv may do 30 or 60 hz
