Hello,

I was looking to build an entirely new build and deciding to make it an white build with silver/gray accents. I am looking to overclock to as high as possible. I would be using this as a workstation(Adobe suite) and for gaming as well, possibly for 1440p as well. I'm looking for the most optimized build for my price range.

So far, these are the parts I have:

First your paying top dollar for an SSD that is no longer anywhere near the fastest. I suggest the cheaper Crucial 300mx 275GB for $69. This or upgrade the a M.2 samsung 960evo for $129.

I would also get a better cooler for around the price $88.

I would also suggest paying a bit more for a PSU that can easly run 2 1070's. The Antec 850 is a very good PSU for the money at only $95.
