I am currently in the process of building a new rig and am looking for a second opinion. Looking to see what you guys think in terms of components that I should be willing to upgrade or not. I'm looking to spend around $2000 USD on the new rig (willing to go up a little in price if the performance is really worth it). It's going to be used for gaming on games like CSGO, Valorant, Apex Legends, Warzone, LoL, etc. Here is my current planned build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/moochayy/saved/

Thanks in advance everyone!

It looks like a nice build.

The only suggestion I would make is this. The motherboard you selected should be fine with the 5600X even playing with OC. If you ever have in mind to upgrade to R7 or 9 CPU I would check Buildzoid (I think is his name) and or his recommends to Gamers Nexus about the new chipsets and VRM.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated. You wouldn't happen to have a link to his stuff, would you?

More cores,/threads, same gaming performance, looks better.
You can sync the ram, aio fans, ll120's together in iCue software.
The H510 is a big no no imo.
Closed front panel with only a rear exhaust and top exhaust fan isnt enough for a 3060ti and a newer cpu.
The psu, storage, GPU is good.

Edit: If you want a cheaper option get rid of that 360mm aio for a arctic freezer 34 esport duo air cooler, it will be enough to cool a 10700F

Wow, thanks for the in depth breakdown. Wondering what the reasoning/numbers behind the Intel CPU over the Ryzen and why you decided on the RAM and CPU cooler that you selected?

Something else to consider going with Intel is that if you went with the (non F) skew, you would have a graphics option until the madness is over. If you already have a GPU that is usable at this point I see only a couple of reasons not to go Ryzen.

Intel has REALLY turned up the heat as far as pricing value for this particular market moment.

Intel > AMD since the 10700F has the same performance as the 5600X, for less money, while offering more cores/ threads.
Spoiler.
RAM mainly for RGB software to pair with the AIO and case fans.
Same reason for the AIO.

Yeah, I was under the impression that Ryzen is better right now in terms of performance for the price.

Will this be the better option long-term as well? Because I want this rig to last without making major upgrades to it when not necessary.
