I picked this. The 7400 is locked so a z270 board is unnecessary. H270 will work. Unfortunately, 7th generation is an end of life so finding these boards new for a reasonable price will be a hassle.
That’s sick dude thanks. Another question though. Any tips on cooling? Like what fans to buy or whatever. I’m pretty new so this is a complicated process for me lol. Thanks so much man
 
What cooler does the CPU currently have? The stock cooler should be sufficient for a 7400 since it has a locked multiplier. The case I listed has only 1 rear fan but the PSU will help with exhausting if loaded. The 1660ti will produce a good bit of heat so to help you could buy this 3 pack of cheap Rosewill fans for $15 and mount 2 in front and one up top, but the system should work fine without it.https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200072&ignorebbr=1&source=region&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC--pla--Case+Fans-_-N82E16835200072&gclid=Cj0KCQiA5Y3kBRDwARIsAEwloL4O1jZpGZXxfbUvz7c3PhdzFLUL-OZreue0n4uJ4U9AulLtHMeI02kaAm56EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Cpu has an intel dc12v 0.2A fan, I’ll look into those fans too
