Question Is This Gaming PC good enough?

Jun 18, 2020
Hey guys, I'm trying to navigate a new Gaming PC purchese and the specs are somewhat confusing to a newbie like me so I thought I would ask some experts.

As a background, I want to record Gameplay videos with this machine and maybe consider Streaming in the future. I also want to do some PC gaming as well.

Would this machine run something like Total War Warhammer 2 on the highest settings and record it at the same time?

Here is the PC I am considering:

Operating System - Windows 10 Home
Processor - Intel® Core™ i9-10900X Processor
Video Card - GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 6GB
Memory - 16GB DDR4-3200 G.SKILL Memory
Motherboard - ASUS Prime X299-A II MB
Storage - 1TB HDD

I am looking at a PC from IBuyPower and I would post a link to the PC I'm looking at but idk if I would get in trouble for it. Thanks for any advice guys! :D
I expect you are significantly overpaying because of your cpu choice. Although the cpu is very capable the cheaper 10700k or 10900k with Z490 are better for gaming due to stronger single core performance. Even a 10700k is massive overkill for 1660Ti, that’s pairing an entry/mid level gpu with a top end cpu. A 10600k or Ryzen 3600 would be a better match for a 1660Ti.
