Hi I'm planning to build a desktop system for my room. I mainly will use it for casual gaming (games like Rocket League, PES 19 ,maybe CSGO and single player games like AC:Odyssey), 4K video editing (I do school projects) and watching media. I just wanted to get some sense of approval if it's alright for its value and if everything is compatible (I checked with this site but who knows..)

Here's the build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/w2gg9J

*Tips would be appreciated though I am ordering most of the stuff from inside my country from a certain store (makes it cheaper)so my choices are quite limited...

Thanks!
 
I would go with the 2600 over the 9600k. While the 9600k will get about 5-10% better fps in games, the 2600 comes with a good stock cooler and is a good bit cheaper. You dont need the Noctua NH-L9i as this is a low profile cooler that is designed to fit into small cases. Your case is a mid-tower case and will support better coolers. But if you go with the 2600, it comes with a stock cooler and it wont be needed.

I would also save a little money and go with a SATA SSD with a bigger size. For gaming performance, there will be no real world difference between a NVMe drive and a SATA SSD. But you can double your capacity for the same price with a SATA SSD vs the NVMe SSD. NVMe really shine in large data transfers across drives. But one 240gb drive will not be able to move large amounts of data across drives anyway. So there really is no point in a NVMe drive that small.

I would go with this without knowing your location.

Hey, thanks for the quick response and the suggestions :D. What CPU Cooler should I take then (if I do decide to stay with the i5-9600K), or are you saying that it isn't important since I have 3 fans already in the case?
 
No, if you go with the 9600k, you will definitely need a CPU cooler. For around the $40-50 range I would go with the Cryorig H5. It will cool much better then the NH-L9i. The case you selected will support 170mm CPU cooler, so it will support most coolers.

Cheers, the store doesn't have any Cyorig fans, do you reckon Noctua NH-U14S or Cooler Master Hyper 212 will do the job?

I personally would go with a 2700x if you are doing 4k editing because I'd assume you are using premier. I think the 2700x comes with a wraith cooler which is really good for a stock cooler, eliminating the need for an aftermarket cooler. Also I wouldn't get an NVME ssd I would get a 1 TB or 500 GB sata SSD.
