What I think is that the entire build revolves around just one component. The monitor. That's where all the magic happens, or doesn't. Regardless of what's actually going on under the hood.

I own a gtx970. I have yet to play any game that doesn't get 60fps or better at ultra/very high settings. But thats on my older 1080p/60Hz monitors. There's no real need for anything stronger at 1080p/60Hz than a gtx1060, gtx1660, Rx580 realistically, so shortchanging the build to stay in budget just to get a better gpu is pointless. For gaming. If using NVENC for streaming/editing, sure a 2070 would be better, even a 1070 is considerably stronger in that department.

So it's more important to match up the needs of the build than just a gpu that's not going to have any benefit.

I have both BT and wifi on my board. Haven't used either in years. A $10 BT dongle gets better speeds up/downstream, as does my $30 pcie wifi card. They were the first things to become obsolete, took less than a year. Personally I'd be happier with a motherboard that didn't have them, and used that space for extra stuff that can be used, like pcie x1/x4 slots, better audio, more usb3 headers etc.

Dont get stuck on brands or gimmicks. Choose the parts that will do the job you need, and if they can't, is there something that will.

Welcome to the forums my friend!
  • I would consider swapping the 250 M.2 for either a cheaper SATA SSD or the Intel 660p instead.
  • Generally the TT Smart Series are awful, but the RGB version isn't that bad, although I would say there are much better options IMO.
  • Just remember to buy your 2x8GB RAM from one pack, not 2.
  • You can always use the stock Intel cooler if your ambient temps are not extreme.
Everything is compatible however.

thanks for the reply!
would Kingston A400 480GB be a good option?
also other option i can go with is Thermaltake Hamburg Pro RGB 550W 80 Plus Bronze will this be better?
yeah 2x8 was what i had in mind :tearsofjoy:
i'm going with that cooler because i want to get highest clock speed that cpu can support which is 4.1 turbo
so i thought it would need better cooler

The 660p tends to slow as it fills, the Samsung will be obsolete long before it thinks of being unreliable. The Kingston A400 isn't bad, it'll kinda depend on your level of trust and performance needs. It's hard to beat Samsung, most don't come all that close.

The TT smart are office psus, not gaming psus, and really don't handle heavy gpu stress well at all.

Buy your ram in 1 kit, not 2x seperate kits or you run the risk of incompatible ram.

There's nothing incompatible with the build, as such, but there are some better choices is really all.

The A400 is cheaper because it is worse! I'd stick to the samsung or as mentioned above, the Intel 660p.

Probably about the same - As I said, if it was a standard TT Smart, I'd avoid it at all costs, the Smart RGB are better, just still not a PSU I would choose based. But I also have a thing against RGB in PSUs admittedly! regardless there are certainly better PSUs, just depends on your budget, as long as you don't go poor quality.

Well stock should be fine if you don't have extreme ambient temps, but i also recognise the stock coolers aren't great on Intel.

I'd also consider a different GPU as you can get better and newer for not much difference:

Always consider the price/performance of moving up a cpu tier when considering a 3rd party cooler. The performance of 9400f + 3rd party cooler < 9600k + stock cooler and costs not much more if you have a you are not on an exact budget.

I think you should get a gigabyte gtx 1660ti oc and gigabyte z390 aorus ultra instead of your gpu and mobo. Not that the parts you chose are bad, but you could get a upgrade by maybe spending a little bit more.
