Hi so im doing a build to buy in the future, and i was playing arround with the parts and prices and everything. So the one i thought of so far looks like this. So basically i want recommendations, if there's a cheaper alternative to a part while barely losing performance, if theres something i should change/improve, etc.

Main use of the build: Mainly gaming, but i also want to stream. I would like to play 1440p 60fps, cause i really want to try it, but i wouldn't die if it was 1080p.
Preferences: I would prefer Ryzen if possible in the CPU, cause i dont really like what Intel is doing lately.
Budget: 1600 max.
Other stuff: I want it to be future proof. If i have to ''update it'', it has to be in the very long run, so in like 3-4 years from now or something like that.

Also some extra questions. As i said in the "Main use of the build", i would like to play 1440p, for what i checked, but 1440p + streaming would be too much probably, so i would like to just stream in 1080p. But for what i seen 1440p, monitors have problems when using 1080p. So what would be the solution for that? Is 1440p worth the price difference?

Last thing, the case is a place holder really, do you know any case that looks like this one I really like this one but in reviews it says the GPU holder is plastic, not metal, and i dont like that. Site is in spanish, cant find any other site with it.

Thanks for replying! So you think this is overkill or anything? Do you think it can play 60fps 1440p? Also since nobody else replying, can you reply to the 2 questions at the bottom? Wuold really apreciate it :)

Thanks glad to hear. Know anything about the 1440p monitor and streaming in 1080p thing? Or can the PC just stream at 60+ fps, good quality and all at 1440p? Im not much experienced with these things.

For 1440P streaming it's a good build, not overkill unless you were doing that at 1080P. If you go 1440P though make sure it's a 27" panel as that's a good size for that resolution. Also with newer drivers you may be able to get a Freesync one that will work with that Nvidia card.

I'm not too sure about the case but if you find one you like and want those Riing RGB effects then add in Thermaltake RGB Riing fans (They come in packs to save some cash).
 
I will replace NVME ssd with normal sata, no obivous diff. 2070 is overkill for 1440p 60 hz. My take for your usage:

Thanks a lot! Last question now that u talked about fans i remembered. Do you need to buy fans? Or do they come with the case or something? Like case fans. Since i see the option at the bottom to buy them.

I see. Definitely the parts i know the least are motherboards, power supply, storage, etc. I just know about GPU, CPU, RAM and... thats about it :/ So i guess that motherboard is more than enough if not overclocking and stuff like that right? Also, wouldnt it be worth it to just spend those extra 10-20 euros to get gold certified in the power supply? Or it's just not worth it? Last thing, is the difference between the 2700x and 2700 small? 2700 enough to 1440p streaming?

Most cases come with at least 1 fan but depending on airflow or aesthetics you may want to add more.

Thanks for all the help. Usually 1 is enough? Or is it recommended to buy another? They don't seem expensive.
 
usually 2 fans are the least for a case to ventilate fairly well imo.
B450 is fine for pretty good level overclocking, 2700 can reach ~4G if you are not too unlucky.
bronze/gold is just efficiency diff, not quality, and diff is small. Vengeance is very good quality too
I will prefer 100+ fps than 60 when playing games.
2700X can be overclocked ~0.2-0.3 higher but not much diff. will stream well.

1 is ok but for gaming builds I'd prefer to have at least 2, 1 for intake and the other for exhaust. Non LED/RGB pretty quiet fans are pretty cheap but then when you get into the RGB stuff the price can go up to like $25 per fan.

I see thanks. Now this should be the last question. I dont really want/need 144hz. I never had the need for it, im more than happy with 60hz. Is it worth it to drop the 155hz monitor, get a 60hz one, then get the 2700x instead or something? Idk why but i really like the 2700x :/ Any good 1440p monitor that u can recommend me that it's cheaper?

don't say you don't need 144 fps. Even for dota, it feels much better gaming. Try it out in a shop and you will see what I am talking about. If only 1440p 60 fps, this is what I will get instead as 2070 is overkill.

It's a large screen but for immersion nothing beats 21:9 ultra wide panels. I have a 2560x1080P version and absolutely love it!

So i can get to 144fps in high/ultra most games with a 144hz monitor with the PC that u told me earlier? If so then i guess i can go with that, since arround 1600 was my budget anyways

Yeah it doesn't look like 144hz its what im looking for, nor something i can afford. I think ill stick with 1440p 60hz, since even that the CPU in the vid is overclocked, it doesnt go to 144fps. Thanks for all the help!

^ Totally agree. I have a 60hz, 1440p monitor and I'm trying to decide between the 2070 which is barely getting 60 FPS in the latest AAA titles and a 2080 which will give me a few years of real 'overkill' as an upgrade to my current 980 Ti.
