I had an older thread asking for build advice, but I have pretty much reconsidered all the parts and the old thread people started arguing amongst themselves and stopped helping me.

Would this be a good build for 1080p 60fps gaming? The games I want to play are Witcher 3, Rainbow 6 Siege, Far Cry 5, things of that nature. Hoping to do high to max settings.

My budget is 740 US Dollars, and I'm planning on buying this PC today at around 5-6pm. The current build I have is failing with constant crashes and BSOD's, no idea what is crashing and I've been wanting an upgrade, so I am replacing everything except for two HDD's I use for storing games and videos.

Everything look good, any issues that may come up? And I know I could probably get away with a MicroATX Case, but I prefer working with more room and hate having to cram stuff.

For the budget it looks good, just make sure once you have everything up and running and Windows is installed that you go into the BIOS and enable AXMP. This will ensure that the memory runs at the correct speed, voltage & timings (it may run at the default 2133 until AXMP is enabled and the performance difference can be as high as 20 FPS).

Oooh, okay, thanks for the reply! And that will still fit within the PSU wattage?
