Older CPU gets matched by the i5 10600K, the extra paste is not needed, Way overpriced Drive, Buy like a 500GB M.2 drive for the OS and programs and a regular SATA SSD for games.

(prices really depend on where you live personally I avoid all Asus products because of the price increase for their one time good name you can usually find better parts for less money)

Case comes down to the looks you like but that is not a case I would consider buying.

Put your parts in here after changing the country you live in then copy and paste the permalink and post back you probably can do better for less or the same money
