Hi everyone,

I'm building my first gaming PC, and these are the parts I've selected for it:



The CPU and videocard are somewhat locked in, I dont want less performance there since I want a future proof system if I want to stream. I've read that the 2700x is ideal for that, and much cheaper at my country than a 8700k. I also like to multitask so It seems like the right buy.

Am I going wrong with any of the other components? I'm not really sure about the power supply, is 520W enough? A gold one is about 30% more expensive, but it's an investment I can make if it really makes a difference.

Should i get the Tomahawk board instead of this one? It's a bit more expensive and I'm really trying to keep things in my budget atm.

My last question is how easy would this be to build? I mean, would it be connecting all the components and cables together and power up? I see some people having BIOS problems and whatsoever, and I really don't know how to troubleshoot that.

I'd really love your guys help and suggestions, thank you!

Thank you for this and your time, but I'm not fond of getting it from Amazon de. I want to get most of the components in my country due to easyness when dealing with warrantee, payment and delivery. And things are more expensive here, unfortunately :/
 
Here is the list:



Here is the site:

Monitor AOC - G2590FX is out of stock in all the sites I was able to search. Don't confuse it for AOC - G2590PX you listed. AOC - G2590FX supports G-Sync and AOC - G2590PX doesn't. I recommend waiting and saving for it. Save bit more to get no compromise build.
Don't get confused between the two monitors and get AOC - G2590FX.

That build doesnt look very well balanced. Rtx 2080 seems like a waste within my budget since I only want to play 1080p.

Also both the px and fx are gsync compatible, you will find that with a simple google search. They both are the same monitor, only the stand changes.
Ty for your help!

Initially it was not supported. Good that it got G-Sync support. Gaming at 1080p 144Hz RTX2080 will be better suited for many games. Final decision is yours to make.
