im looking to get a new PC around 2k after taxes. i was looking at the 9700k and a 2070 super card. I dont need a power supply or windows since i already have that in a old PC and will just transfer those into a new PC. I like the look of the nzxt 510 case but did read some cons about air flow. pretty much my list that i have so far is kinda what im looking for but not sure if im missing something that could be better than what i have selected. Thanks :)

My suggestions listed in a PCPartPicker List

You can change or remove the cpu cooler if you are not planning on overclocking as the stock cooler that comes with the 3700x will do the job just fine.

Or if this build will be completely for gaming i'd suggest to get a 3600 instead and the cost will lower down even more with minimal performance decreases.

Work stuff is 101% AMD domain.
intel will do just fine, BUT amd one is almost twice the power in CAD

other pieces re just fine with either 2080/2070.

-We don't know how old or good the power supply you're working with is, so I listed one anyway.
-NZXT improves upon the H500's airflow issues with the H700 series. The latter still resembles the former too.

I have a like over kill 1000 wat thermal take power supply i believe, i got my pc used and it was really over kill but now i got it lol and you guys recommend amd over intel? Its just my current toaster has a fx cpu, its that old, and it runs supper hot and the aio is like barely cooling it and its super loud and i hate it.

1)AMD has pretty much come back from their 10 year absence with a vengeance! They caught Intel with it's pants down.

2)The only mainstream Intel cpus worth considering right now are the 9700K and 9900K + an overclock. Even with that though, the performance uplift is in the single digits(%) over Ryzen 3000, whereas the total cost has gone up well over 50%:
-the cpu alone costs more
-at least with the 9900K, you can't go too cheap on the motherboard
-you can't get away with a cheaper cooler on either of those cpus

3)Yeah, Faildozer is hot, greedy and slow - your AIO's pump is likely either clogged or dying though.
It's somewhat changed this time around: Intel's 'Inferno Lake' is hot, greedy, while still being fast, so it's not quite as bad?

Ryzen 3000 has caused some unnecessary concern though. Due to it's 'bursty' nature, it yields higher idle temps and power draw than the competition. [People have mistaken this for overheating - it's just the nature of this beast.]
At the same time though, the load temps and power draw are lower.

Whatever you do, don't treat it like an Intel processor and set a static core frequency. That will nerf performance.
