hello, guys so basically I want to build a new pc that would suit me for the next 3-4 years. I want to play AAA games at 1440p so I'm also gonna buy a new 1440p 144hz monitor. I have a build with a gtx 980 and an i7-4770 with an Asus h81m-k. I might be able to sell the GPU for around $150 and the CPU + mobo for around $173 and a Lenovo thinkvision t22i-10 1080p 60hz monitor for around $110. I also got an Xbox 360 with would be around $106. (I'm not sure if I can sell these parts for even higher but that's what I kinda predict from looking at my local marketplace). if I'm not mistaken, all these parts would make me around $645 and I will be investing this money into buying the new monitor.

now the problem is I came up with a pc build and asked people if it would reliable in like 3-4 more years and people recommended me some things to change. I came up with the following build:

i5 10400f
3060 ti
corsair cv 650w 80+ bronze PSU
lpx16GB 3200mhz (2*8)
gammemax gaming revolt or game max diamond white pc case
mag tomahawk b460(so that I might get an i9-10900k when it drops in price. Idk if it's the right move or not)
Samsung 970 Evo 1TB SSD

some people suggested I buy a b450 and go AMD but the prices are really ridiculous rn and I don't think they will drop. any recommendations guys? I really don't know which route to take. the r5 5600x is kinda out of my price range plus the performance difference is kinda small)

Spend less on a monitor and more on CPU, GPU & PSU.
The i5 10600/k will be a better option than the i5 10400f for gaming...if you want it to be relevant during those years.
Going with a Ryzen 5 3600 and B550 motherboard, then dropping a 5600x when it drops in price, makes more sense.

Dropping a i9-10900k into a b460 motherboard will be a waste, since that platform will prevent the CPU to achieve full performance.

guess I will go with a r5 3600 then. it's about $30 more expensive
