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
 
For 3-4Yrs build. Don't rush. Hold off the Purchase for another 2Months ore More. Purchase components around Feb ending or March.
In that time add as much as you can to the budget.

Prices will normalize for CPUs and GPUs by then.
