I will be re-using the GPU, PSU and storage from my old build. The rest (CPU,Case,RAM,MOBO,Cooler) will be bought. Any feedback or issues with the build or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!




My old build could not run a lot of modern games at steady frame rates (FFXV, KCD,Apex Legends) because my CPU was bottlenecking my GPU. I would also like to stream gameplay on twitch.



I am currently playing on 1440p, with a 144Hz monitor.



I live in Singapore and was planning to buy my parts online through Newegg or something similar because the cost of the parts locally is far greater than buying from newegg. I was wondering how would warranty of my parts work if I didn't buy the parts locally? Any help or feedback would be appreciated thanks!

Overall it looks great.
You might want to get a Ryzen 7 2700X instead of a 9700K, but that really depends on what you'll be doing with it. Also, if you'll want to upgrade, you'll probably want to go with Ryzen.

seem like a solid build.
i would suggest you wait till end of this year, if you can as new 10nm and 7nm chips will be launched.
you can also save on case.. i personally would go for the cheapest case i could find with good airflow and spend that money on Nvme ssd not sata ssd.
you can save on Ram as well, and go with 3000mhz, its an intel build.

for warranty, i think that is given from the manufacturing company not new egg, you can ring up your local service center of gigabyte and intel and check with them.

I already have these from my current build and will just be transferring them to the new one.

I plan on streaming and playing games at 1440p at high refresh rates. Will the 2700x be better than 9700k for this?
