Hi guys, I'm rebuilding my pc and want to be super sure that im picking solid parts as I have been out of this area for a while and there seems to be much more competition in parts than there used to be.

MAIN FOCUS: Gaming
BUDGET: Around £1-1.3k Excluding already owned parts.
THEME: Going for a bit of a white and black theme with white internals but its not hugely important.

The build:
CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060-6GB (carried over from old rig)
SSD: Samsung 970 Evo NVMe PCIe M.2 1TB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3200 C16 2x16GB
MBD: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING
PSU: Corsair 760W 80+ Platinum Fully Modular ATX (carried over)
CASE: NZXT H510 Elite
COOL: Corsair H100i 77 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (carried over)

The stuff in red im not too sure on.
CPU I want it to be very good so I can also use as a workstation for years to come but open to suggestions as well as AMD as i've heard theyre much better recently.
RAM I have no idea on this and would very much appreciate suggestions.
MBD is another one that im not clued onto about and so would love feedback

I appreciate all feedback, thank you for reading.

What resolution/refresh rate is your monitor?

While the 9900K is pretty much the best gaming CPU currently there might be a better price to performance pick.

I think with your budget you could sell your GPU and get something better and possibly move to 1440P if your currently on 1080P.

(Excluding your CPU cooler & PSU).

Keep an eye on your 9900k temps with that AIO. I recommend the platinum series AIO's as they have a better pump and were released after the 9900k to cool that processor.
Make sure the memory kit you get is 14 cas latency and not 16. The motherboard is fine.

I am on 1080 atm, the only thing im worried about it getting the AMD CPU but then wanting to upgrade to a top tier intel and needing a new motherboard too. Would it be better to keep the i9 and the upgrade the GPU a few months down the line ? As far as RAM wise, is their a diff between the one you linked and the one i did?

If it came down to what you have or what you could possibly get (the list I provided) I'd do the later as you get a good CPU, excellent GPU & a solid monitor upgrade however if you think you may end up regretting the 3600 then get the 9900K as it does have excellent performance per core and your 1060 6gb is still a solid 1080P gaming GPU.

Either option would be fine.

Appreciate it, do you think the RAM/motherboard etc is a good choice?
