Hi I'm in the final phases of buying a new PC as my current one is 4 years old and kinda under performing in today's games. I'm making this post to see if i should update my parts any more or if I'm in the clear to play today's triple a games.
PC Build- This is the build i have so far
Approximate Purchase Date: I'm planning to buy the parts this weekend

Budget Range: My total budget is around $1900

System Usage from Most to Least Important: The main thing i plan to do with this PC is to play games, including vr, and record them occasionally

Are you buying a monitor: I don't really think so but if it fits into the budget and is better than my current one (Current monitor ) I guess so


Parts to Upgrade: anything to better the build really

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: anything that isn't to sketchy

Location: I live in Florida in the south-west part of it

Parts Preferences: Only real part preference is that the GPU be from Nvidia

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: I currently have a 1920x1080 resolution with 60 HZ but like i said before, if it fits into the budget and is better, I'd take it

Additional Comments: I want to buy a new keyboard, headphones, and mouse but I already have those so if it's better to stay with the current ones to put money into something more important like the actual PC , I'm fine with upgrading them later . And if possible i want the build to be a mainly all white build with RGB too if possible. Also I'm going to need a wireless network adapter but I don't know what's the best one to buy.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I finally got a summer job and can actually afford a new PC so i don't want to mess up like I did with my current one, I went the prebuilt path and only mainly considered the GPU and nothing else thinking that the GPU is the only important part to gaming resulting in me have a GTX 970 paired with a I3-4160, so I just want to make sure I can have a PC with absolutely no problem.
Sorry if this is the wrong forum to ask for these kinds of questions

You can drop down to a B450 chipset board. ASRock make an B450M Steel Legend which will fit your color scheme well. Pick a dual channel DDR4-3200Mhz ram kit to better the Ryzen platform. Get a 970 Evo Plus M.2 in there instead of the 860 M.2. I'd personally pick a Seasonic Gold/Platinum rated PSU over that Corsair, if the budget allows.

If you are left with $700 something dollars of a budget with the above....do yourself a favor and wait about 2 weeks before you actually pull the trigger.

I know you've heard it, but the new Ryzen drops then. It is likely going to be pretty amazing of it's own, but "word on the street" is that it's going to shake up pricing both within last gen Ryzen, and rumors are that Intel is doing a % across the board cut on 8th and 9th gen.

It may turn out to be crap, but for 14 days of wait I think you might want to kick your own butt if any of it turns out to even be half true. These next couple of weeks are not the time to buy a new system.
