Hmm I understand. I am also not in a hurry. I am still gathering information. Thank you^^
For mainly gaming I would change a bit. I see no reason to spend that much on the board, drop down to the 10700K, and change the drives (gives you a full 2TB SSD for them).

Thank you very much for your input ^^True there is no reason for a full case but I do enjoy them more for a reason haha. But like I said I am still gathering info. I am very careful and take my time xD When I have something definitive. I'll post it^^

Like I said in my post not really the case I would pick but that comes down to you, your the one going to see it everyday really nobody else.

Full tower Mid tower both hold the same parts you have listed really. That is why I left the case their, other than that I still think the rest of the build is a better option for less money.

Just to add I don't recommend or build with Asus products, gimmick software that sometimes breaks the system and overpriced for what you get. (this is my personal opinion) They were a great company about 7 years ago.

One thing I would strongly recommend is buying the 2X16GB of memory in a matched set or at least buying a 4X8gb set in a matched set not buying 2 separate kits. Buying memory 1 kit as in 1 package not 2.

In my opinion my drive setup is better for the same price, the NVME drive does not give really a performance boost to games so the 500GB NVME for your OS and programs with a full 2TB SSD for your games is a better option.

EDIT actually my drive setup is about 30 bucks more!

EDIT again nothing wrong with taking your time to get more input!
