Hello

It has been ages since i've put together a computer build so i'd like to ask your opinion on the one i'm considering now. I do strongly prefer to stick with Intel and NVIDIA. It will be mostly used for games but i would like it to last.

Intel Core i5-10600K with Arctic Freezer 7 X CO fan
GIGABYTE B460M AORUS PRO - Intel B460
GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 WINDFORCE OC 6GB DDR6
Patriot Viper Elite gray 16GB DDR4 2666 MHz
WD SSD Blue 3D NAND, 2,5" - 500G , WD Black (FZEX), 3,5" - 2TB
Corsair CV Series CV650 - 650W

This is the best i can get within my budget but i have a feeling there will be some sort of bottleneck. Appreciate any advice you can give me.

Thanks

I wouldn't consider there to be a bottleneck here, the i5 10600k is one of the top tier gaming CPU's especially if you overclock. I'm currently using an i7 6700 and a 1080ti and I'm definitely losing some performance, that's why I have also decided to upgrade to the 10600k, and I plan to get 3080 later on.

The only things that standout to me is your CPU cooler and PSU. I haven't looked at any performance benchmarks of your cooler but from a quick google search it looks like a fairly low end cooler, possibly a slight upgrade over stock. Considering your opting for the K version of your processor I would personally get something a little more substantial for some overclocking head room. (This cooler could be much better than I think so you can ignore this if I'm talking bs.)

I would also opt for a 750-850+ PSU just for a little more headroom in case you upgrade in the future, I went all in with a 1000w which is pricey but it comes with a 10 year warranty so you will probably never buy a PSU again.

I think your build looks great and you will not have any issues, I would however consider AMD R5/R7 series. I doubt a R5 would restirct performance to your 2060 and chossing this cheaper alternative might give you some extra cash to slip in a 2070 or second hand 1000/2000+ series card.

Thanks for the reply. I do not plan to overclock and there is very little price difference between R5 and i5 10600's (R5 3600xt costs around 13 dollars more than 10600 and 23 dollars less than 10600k with cheapest R7 being outside of my budget).

I am considering using basic 10600 instead of k to save a bit of money and put in better PSU if i ever have to upgrade. I am highly uncertain with any other PSU's apart from Corsair as those above 650 i found are either too expensive or from what i understand fairly bad.
