Question My First Build

Looks good. Seems like I could have found a better PSU for that price. PSU prices are UP... possibly the US-China tariffs?

I'd get an EVGA G2 or G3, Corsair RMx, or SeaSonic FOCUS Plus or PRIME instead of that Cooler Master MWE.

If nothing else though, get the one you picked. It's not bad.

It's a good build but you can have slightly better performance (due to faster memory) for $200 less.

If you dumped the RGB stuff you could essentially save more money or get better parts depending on the budget.

The 2060 didn't have a price on it so I'm not sure if that's included into your budget or not.

I was going to go with the 3600 CPU but the Bios on the Motherboard weren’t compatible.

Some boards such as the MSI B450 Tomahawk have a button on them that allows you to update the motherboard BIOS without a CPU. This would allow you to use the 3600 instead of the 2600.

so I could download the Bios on the same computer and it would let me install it?

Do you think this setup will run 1440p 144mhz ok?
That will depend on the game, for the most part I doubt it unless you drop to medium settings in triple AAA games. I would potentially look at getting the 1660ti, it's a fair bit cheaper and is almost on a par with the 2060, you lose the rtx features but I wouldn't buy a 2060 for the rtx stuff anyways.

One last question. I am going to build a pc for playing World Of Warcraft. Is there any way of checking if my old computer will run it for basic stuff until I get the new one built?
