I’m looking to build a pc around $2000-$2500 USD including cost of a monitor. The link above is what I currently have in mind.

Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: 2000-2500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming > Photoshop
This is my main issue! I need a gaming graphics card with DVI for my Cintiq 22 HD.
Somewhere between 600$-900$ would be a good range

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Everything from newegg only

Country: US

Overclocking: Overclocking not necessary

Monitor Resolution: 1080p high refresh rate for competitive gaming.

Any other suggestions are welcome, I’m not attached to anything in this build.

Hmm. DVI is a bit annoying, a fading standard. Will adapters work? Might be worth testing with your current GPU if it has HDMI or something. Maybe check in the Wacom forums and see if anyone has already attempted to use adapters with more recent GPUs.

Your build is an okay basis. Not sure why the MicroATX board in an ATX case.

You've selected RGB memory. Is that something you are interested in? Doesn't really go all that well with Noctua's standard colors. (I understand they have black fans coming out soon)

Also more colorful motherboards out there. And RGB case fans.

If you want a more professional/industrial look, that is actually very easy to achieve these days.

If you'd like to lower the price I'd change the CPU to the 9600K and the memory down to 2x8gb.

A gaming monitor? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/c298TW/asus-monitor-mg279q

Or something more professional that can also game? 60Hz IPS panel? 4k?

Here is my take on less RGB and more clean looking. Phanteks' cooler is comparable to Noctua's, but not made with poo colors.

Yeah, I picked it out with that in mind. But you can always go more professional with color reproduction standards being met. Usually have 6ms+ response times though. And plenty of room in the budget for a 4K monitor which gets you a lot of real estate for editing suites.

And for those that don't care about high refresh, you can get monitors a lot cheaper. So maybe a pair for productivity.

Looks like HDMI to DVI adapters work with the Cintiq 22HD. So no need to seek out DVI ports specifically.

Wow thanks for all of the quick response I will be checking everything out when I get off work! Also I suppose I don’t care about the RGB on anything as long as the pc does it’s job. Also Eximo I really appreciate you looking into the adapter issue for me.
 
The 860 Evo is overpriced, in my opinion. That's the M.2 version, but it still uses the SATA interface rather than NVME, so maximum sequential performance will still be limited to a little over 500MB/s, similar to most other recent SATA SSDs. And in general, performance of the drive is rather similar to the Crucial MX500, another quality SATA SSD that's currently priced nearly $40 less than that drive at Newegg for the M.2 version, or over $50 less for the 2.5 inch version.

Or for almost $60 less than the M.2 860 Evo, the 1TB Intel 660p is a lower-end NVME SSD with performance that typically ranges from similar to better than an 860 Evo under most common usage scenarios. It does use QLC flash memory though, which can result in notably lower sustained write performance in some situations when performing very large writes to the drive within a short period, but I think most users are unlikely to often encounter situations like that.
