Hey everyone,
This is my first post on this forum and this is probably gonna be a long read, sorry about that.

So my new 2019 build would be:
  • CPU: Something Ryzen (unless there's a better value for intel)
  • MoBo: Depends on CPU of course, but definitely something with high speed DDR4 RAM support and with good future upgrade-ability
  • RAM: 2x8 GB DDR4 (Idk which bus speed to get, the prices really vary in my country)
  • GPU: RX 5700 XT
  • PSU: Wattage depends on build, but definitely something by Corsair, modular and 80+ Gold Certified

I want the absolute best value for my money in under $1000 - $1200 preferably. Max I can go is $1500 if it's really worth it.
I'd greatly appreciate it if you can give me advice and suggestions on finishing my build.

This gets you started. There's still plenty of room in the budget for extras such as long term storage, extra fans, upgraded cpu cooler etc.

What is your intended use for the PC? This would help resident builders to target components for your usage.
Thanks for the reply,
I'll be mainly gaming on 1080p with a 144hz monitor. I don't care too much about graphics as long as I get buttery smooth fps on competitive titles. But on single-player games I want at least 60fps on reasonably good graphics.
I will also be working on some blender and after effects.

Thanks a lot. I already have 4 TB worth of HDDs from my previous build so this fits my budget perfectly. Might wait for RX 5700 XT with custom coolers first though, blowers sound like a horrible idea with AMD GPUs.

Update: Just saw custom RX 5700 XT reviews popping up this hour. Sapphire RX 5700 XT Pulse is only $10 more than the blower version. SWEET!
