After, heavy consideration and questioning, new part choices have been made. Feel free to comment, ask questions, or discuss. Also, AMD Ryzen 5600X or Core i7-11700K (Rocket Lake)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5600X - $299

GPU: EVGA 3070 XC3 Ultra Gaming

MOBO: ASUS ROG Strix X570-E - $319

RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4-3600 MHz CL16 - $208

Storage: 1TB Samsung 980 Pro and 500GB Samsung 870 EVO 2.5” SATA/6 - $199 and $69 respectively

Case: NZXT H710i - $169

PSU: Corsair RMx 1000W - $204

While there's nothing wrong with any of this, some of the balance is odd. Why a nearly $300 AIO for a six-core CPU? What features are you using in the X570 that you're not in a $200 motherboard? Why the 3070 instead of a 3080 or another quality of life upgrade (monitor, etc) with this budget? Why a 1000W PSU? It just feels like there's a lot of money spent here that will never really convert into actual performance. There's literally $300 or so you could trim from this without any meaningful change in performance. There could be specifics as to why you chose specific parts, but all I see is a list, so that's all I can react to.

The AIO is future proof in case I upgrade to a 12-core CPU. The power supply is for power intensive tasks planned (cannot mention) and future proofing. I’ll be gaming at 1080p so I’ve been suggested a 3070. I’m greatly confused as to the major difference between X570 and B550 and what that translates into in terms of upgrading and performance. The 500GB SATA drive is for Boot and excess work (school, general work, etc.)

Oh, for the same price, tweaking the list, making it an X73, upgrading to 5800X, and going for a B550 board. It’s the same price. AIO, I don’t mind. Is it worth dropping the X570 and go for a B550 and 5800X? @DSzymborski

Question time: Is it worth upgrading to the 5800X over the 5600X? 3070 or 3080 for 1080p? B550 or X570 in performance, features, and future proofing? Z73 or X73? Is 1000W overkill? @Master Djoza

H510 Elite. or. H710i.
H710i: Z73 360mm rad, other stuff listed below

H510 Elite: Z63 280mm rad with pull config, other stuff listed below

MOBO: ROG Strix X570-E

GPU: EVGA 3070 XC3 Gaming

PSU: Corsair RMx 1000W

Fans: NZXT AER RGB 2 (2 if I get the H510E)

Storage: an NVMe drive which goes on the MOBO, and a SATA 2.5” drive. I would need at least 5 such trays.

Needs: good cable management, good airflow, and good performance (combining everything)
 
5600X to 5800X for gaming?
No.
3070 to 3080 for 1080p?
No.
B550 or X570 for future proofing?
Depends on what you want to do with those "future proofing features" that X570 offers, but you will be more than fine on a good B550 board.
Z73 vs X73?
My pick would be the X73, its cheaper and the only major difference i can see is the display. Specs wise they are similar/same.
Is 1000W overkill?
For 5600X/5800X with 3070/3080, yeah i would say, a bit.
You are fine with a good 850W unit.
 
Reactions: yeetbucket
If it has to be NZXT, H710i is the one to go imo.
But not with a 360mm rad mounted on the front, since its a closed front panel with only little side-vents.
Grab a 240mm/280mm version of the X73, cheaper than Z73, will cool pretty much the same and mount it on top.
1000W is overkill with 5600x/5800x and 3070, a good 850W unit is more than enough.
Gpu and mobo are good.

I will note that. I do believe the H710i has 360mm rad support in the top. I’ll look at some 850W power supplies, any recommendations?

Price without a gpu since I'd not pay $1400 for a 3070. This build won't need upgrading at all for 3-6 years and by that time it's more of a replacement than an upgrade. Many of the parts will move over, like storage, case, psu etc.

That's $1,128 if shopping from Newegg for a board, psu and 6 core cpu for a gaming build. Whoever is giving you advice should be held accountable and be forced to pay for half your build.

Oh, I'm buying the board from Newegg or ASUS, ($319), the CPU from Best Buy or Micro Center ($299), and the PSU from Best Buy ($204).

The 1000W still doesn't make much sense. It doesn't really future-proof anything.

The motherboard is still confusing. Either go up to a Crosshair VIII or down to a x570 TUF Gaming. There's very little differentiation in the motherboards more expensive than a x570 TUF Gaming until you get to the Crosshair, except for price. I'd flip the question around: what specific features are you using on a ROG Strix-E that you do not have on a TUF Gaming that are worth $130 to you? If you can't answer the question, then you have to ask yourself if you're just spending money to spend money. That is, of course, your choice, but you'll be happier with a build if you go into it with your eyes wide open.
