Hey folks,

So im looking to build a gaming pc from scratch. This will be my first time making a PC, ive put a good bit of research into this but know that im still lacking alot on knowledge of all the things required. Im hoping to get a bit of advice from people who have a better idea of Pc building. Im looking to use the build for high end gaming, a good example of a benchmark im looking to run Total War Three kingdoms on ultra graphics and large unit size putting large amounts of models on screen any one time.

Ive put a good bit of time into looking at all the parts I would need, this is the build ive come up with so far

CPU- AMD Ryzen 5 2600 x
GPU- RTX 2070 (The exact model im not yet sure of, any recommendations would be much appreciated)
Motherboard- Gigabyte X470 Aorus or ASUS prime X470 pro
RAM- G skill trident Z RGB 16GB
Storage- SSD Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB and HDD 3TB Barracuda
Psu- NZXT E850 or Corsair RM850x
Case- Be Quiet Dark Base pro 900

Would I need to purchase any additional fans with this?

All the parts all together (not including the GPU) when priced during creating this post came to just under 1200. This leaves me with around 600 or so to spend on the GPU.

Im still on the market for a 4k monitor for a decent price (willing to spend a little more if its of good value) and would have around 300-400 budget for it, I understand that a quality monitor may cost more but would only really stretch my budget for something exceptional be it in quality or value.

I have picked a few parts on this build that I could more than likely find cheaper alternatives but im trying to build with longevity in mind with the options to upgrade other parts such as the GPU in the future without it falling behind on other parts.

I really appreciate any time spent by anyone reviewing this build.

Kind regards,

Sam

While the 2080 isn't the best card for 4K (the 2080 ti is) it would still allow you to get on med-high settings at a stable 60 FPS.

If you live near a Microcenter you can find the Ryzen 1600 for $80 which would be a good placeholder for Ryzen 3rd gen which should be released in July.

Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly. My main issue with alot of that would be im based in the EU meaning alot of those prices wouldn't work out for me as id need to find price alternatives in Europe, Ireland preferably

With regards to the parts I had pieced together in the first post how well do you think they would run? Im assuming the GPU would struggle with 4k but 1440p?

The 2070 or 2080 would work well at 1440P.

If your looking at a screen with a lot of real estate then look at a 3440x1440P and if you prefer a higher refresh rate they go from 60hz up to 120hz.

MSI V372-031R GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio Video Card Black
it comes in at just over 800 euro, is this a sound investment? It will keep me under the 2000 euro mark of my budget (thats with a monitor picked out already) by a couple euro
