For 1080p 144Hz gaming I highly recommend going with RTX2080 over RTX2070. RTX2070 is decent for 60fps+ gaming while RTX2080 can push 100fps+ in majority of titles.

That motherboard comes with onboard WiFi

Initially skip on OS as you can run Windows10 without activation perfectly fine.

Quick question. Why the mini B450 rather than the full sized one?
