For $700 or less, you can do it. Looking at your build, it looks like you're ok with rebates?

I'd recommend better than a quad-core for newer titles (CS, Fortnite etc would be fine).

You could look to something like:

The 1200/1300X R3's are options too, but for ~$30 more, the 2nd Gen R5-2600 (6c/12t) is a much better option.

Build could really benefit from an SSD, but at the pricepoint..... you have to make sacrafices.

I like Barty1884's build. But you can save a little money and run windows without buying it right away. I am not saying to not buy it, but you can build the rig and run windows unactivated till you get the cash to have it activated. With that $100 saved you can get a SSD and a RX580 that comes with a couple of decent games.

This is not a budget system, this is a solid midrange rig.

Oh, 100%! Didn't realize the 570's were down so low.



Good point! At the very least, pick up an SSD..... but a bump to a 580 would be a great choice.
For ~$700

Agreed with Barty. (I built this before I saw his)
I would definitely go with the 2600 if I could squeeze it. Mine has the rx570 and a freesync monitor. I would go with the 570 if you can actually get it at this price. If not the card you have is fine. I like the case you chose. So I left it. But until I had an ssd I would spend the minimum I could get away with on a case. Look for sales. Psu's also tend to have decent sales if you watch for them.
