Question Build Compatibility/Performance Check

May 28, 2020
Hello, I'm about to do my third build and wanted to make sure my components are compatible and all perform around the same level. I am set on doing an Intel build but am otherwise not dead-set on any component. My budget is around $1500. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thank you in advance for the help.

CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM 75 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Master
Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz
Storage: Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB (Already owned)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB
Case: NZXT H710i Matte White
Power supply: Corsair RM750x 80 Plus Gold

I am most unsure about a good GPU for this build. I don't game heavily but still would like mid-to-high performance.

Thanks again.


If you prefer Intel then I'd go CometLake (10th gen) as the 10700K is hyperthreaded so 8 cores/16 threads while the 9700K is 8C/8T. I'd mount the AIO on top as exhaust.
