Build i'm interested in:
Ryzen 7 3700x CPU
Nvidia RTX 2070
MSI B450 Tomahawk ATX Mobo
2 x 8gb corsair vengeance LPX ddr4 3000mhz
Evga 500w psu white rated

Is this build enough for 144hz (1080p) first person shooter gaming? I will mostly be playing at Medium/Low setting and not max.

Games in question:
Apex legends
Rainbow six siege
BF5
Cod MW
 
At 1080p low/medium settings a 2070 seems overkill. Your FPS will be dictated by the cpu and not the gpu, you likely won’t see any higher FPS than running higher settings due to cpu.
It’s a good setup, just the medium/low comment is odd.

Yeah, it's just that i'm super used to running every game at the lowest settings with my current 1060 6gb + ryzen 5 2600 to squeeze out as much performance as i can however, it isn't enough for stable 144fps on the games listed above. If the new build can run games at 144fps on higher settings i'll use them.

No need to set it to low or medium settings. RTX 2070 can handle majority of games at high settings if not ultra and give you 100fps+

Grab RTX2070 Super if possible instead of RTX2070 as price difference is minimal compared to performance gain.

Even a 3700x may not achieve a steady 144fps in BF5 and COD MW. It will get very close. As I say it’s a good setup though but manage expectations. If getting as close to 144fps is really important to you then you may want to consider an i7 9700K but this will work out more expensive for a relatively small bump in FPS.
