They are around 6 shops and each shop has something the other doesn't or they do but have different prices and the sites aren't in English nor are in USD currency, so i don't want to bother you more than i already have, i think this is the best setup i can do with my budget considering how expensive the parts are, guess when i find that box of gold i can grab that i7 10700k + 3090 :tearsofjoy:
So what do you think about the motherboards, should i go with the ASUS TUF? or MSI? TUF seems more powerful correct?
they are similar in specs,but you might wanna overthink that ram speed thought.On both boards the max speed is 2933mhz.I would suggest buying a 2x8gb 2666mhz kit.

Hey man thanks for the post! I'll have to check if there is any i7 10700 at where i live as not everything is avaible in stock here, gonna sweep the online stores and get back to you.

EDIT: also i should have mentioned that from the start, i already have that PSU (Evga 750) along with the SSD.

There is only the i7 10700 non K, is it worth it? as going for the h510 only makes a little more space for cash but not really that much as the i7 10700 is pretty expensive here.

i5 10400 232.73$
i7 10700 423.14

wow,200$ difference?
Its totally not worth it in that case.I forgot to ask,what is this build for?
Are you gonna be only gaming or gaming and editing and that sort of stuff.
Maybe amd would be a better deal,i figured out you have a budget of about 1000$,so check this out:

Its a much more powerful build that 5700XT is much better than the 1660 super.The 3700X has similar performance in games,but absolutely destroys 10400 in every other aspect.You said that you have that SSD and PSU so i didnt put it in this build.What do you think?

Yes everything is expensive here...everything.
Gaming is for sure, can't wait to max it out with CP2077.
5700XT price is 520.46$ and that's on sale! other shops have it for 619.19$ :sweatsmile: and the 3700X is for 407.62$ so i guess those are not a chance.

I see but will the motherboard which is limited to 2933mhz simply down the RAMs speed to what it is capable of? or is it as you pointed that the RAM speed must be the same as what the motherboard can handle?

I'm asking this because i don't think there are any other G SKILL RAMS as those sweet models in the entire country other than the one listed above :tearsofjoy:

If u buy that 3000mhz kit it would run max on 2933mh,but i didnt want you to spend like 20-30$ more on 3000mhz ram,when u can just buy 2666mhz which is probably cheaper.
