(First off, apologies for posting in the wrong thread... :( )

Ok, so prob earlier this year or something, I posted about building a pc. I found that I am finally going to be able to actually buy the parts needed to build the pc around September. I came up with a new build as my budget has increased from the last time I posted about a PC. Here's a couple background info you should know before you start raging at my build :p
  1. Going to powerline - Can't deal with delays and stuttering from high ping... (Can't do hard wiring b/c too far away from router)
  2. The additional SSD and Hard drive adapter cable is for my mom's laptop cause man is that thing slow af.
  3. Will only play esports title games like OW (Also apex legends to the side) - Will not overclock
  4. Budget = ~$1320 w/ tax @ 8.7% (Weird number yes, but its converted from korean won) - This includes everything, not just the PC itself.
  5. Without tax, the budget is ~$1220
  6. Won't be gaming hardcore
  7. I do care for aesthetics - Clean looking + White
  8. I am 100% sure that I do not need a 2060 for a damn esports game... (Will be using freesync cause its only a 570)
  9. Will be wanting to use this for at least 6+ years
My question: How can I improve this setup while staying within budget?

Here's the build:

That 570 is too weak to pull off the 144hz. Here is the improved version. Add the extras...

I've actually been wondering about that 570 tbh. I've been to websites like userbenchmark and gpucheck and found that the 570 is actually a very good card for me since all I play are esports games. I won't ever be above the low/medium settings (Very normal for esports games). If I had to upgrade, I got feedback that the rx 580 was more than enough since it could very easily hit over 144fps with esports games. Also, is an matx better in budget conditions than regular atx mobos?

Thats true for 60hzs, not 144hzs. The board is not a big factor for performance, the card is. You are looking at limited scope and in the present. You need to think about longevity of the build. Will it be able to run the same in a couple of years??? Not with the 570.

Ah I see, but would that really require me to get a 590 when I will be probably only be playing games about 1-2 hours every other day? I understand that longevity is a huge factor but I'm not playing games like everyday for 6 hours.
