Hi guys! I'm building my first proper desktop tower and I was wondering what you guys think about it. I've done a bit of research and pretty much chosen parts with relatively high ratings and made sure they're compatible. I already bought the GPU a year ago but I haven't round to getting the rest of he parts (until now!) and a friend of mine will give me the case as he won't be using it anymore. I'm trying to fit in a budget of about £900-1000.

I am mainly going to use it for playing games, hopefully get a 144hz monitor further down the line. I'd also like to get into 3D modelling, so I'm hoping this rig will allow me to do that.

Let me know what you think! :)

You are going for a obsolete, overpriced and dead platform. This should be much better...

Older parts, you can do much better for the money.

Cheaper, better for gaming & the 3D modelling, more memory and more/faster SSD storage.

Thanks for the advice! No issue with the potential issues/incompatibility issues?

Thanks for the help and the comparison! Super helpful!

What do you mean by "You are going for a obsolete, overpriced and dead platform". Just to help my future builds. AMD much better value for monday?

AMD is better value for money and you can upgrade to a better CPU like the 3900x/3950x down the line, but if you are more inclined towards gaming and planning to stick with this build for a long time, then the 9900k is an equally compelling option.
