I put this in a format for all to see without having to click a link to see it, links are still there anyway if you want a closer look. as well as some explanations and such. As it says, at the bottom, the total price is pretty much at the limit of the budget, just shy of $3000, but by black friday/cyber monday, I am expecting some of these parts to get cheaper, perhaps somewhere around the $2400 -$2600 price range. Please let me know what you guys think

What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
I want it for gaming, streaming, and a little video editing here and there
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
my budget is $3000, waiting for black friday deals will help with this
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
US
BIGGEST QUESTIONS
  • Does this build require AIO since I do plan to overclock?
  • Does the motherboard work well with the gpu and cpu?
  • Does the cpu pair well with the cpu
  • Is the case unnecessarily expensive? I wanted a case with the tempered glass on the sides to see everything and for ease of access, plus is looks pretty.
  • Does this setup have any kind of bottlenecking that might prevent it from running better
Post a draft of your potential build here (specific parts please). Consider formatting your parts list.

Hi good rig what will your build be primarily for? Because the rx 5700x has somilar workstation performance as the 2080 no ti but then you can get 32gb of ram or 64 (2x32gb) or id cut down on ssd storage for rhe 32gb of ram it will help with streaming and and workstation tasks i would also cut down on the case theres plenty of tempered glass cases for half the price and try get a 3900x instead it will help alot even if you cant get 32gb of ram i would also look at a cheaper rtx 2080ti because thats $200 over msrp and you need an aditional $180 for the 3900x
Just my opinion on this but it will help alot to get the 3900x and 32gb of ram
 
  1. No, you don't need an AIO for OCing the 3700X
  2. 2x8GB DDR4-3600 costs ~$80 if you don't need RGB.
  3. Ditch the QLC Intel 660p, and get something ~500GB like the ADATA SX8200 Pro 512GB for $60.
  4. Go with a 4TB HDD, should also cost $80 and there have been some issues with 3TB drives.
  5. What monitor are you using for that 2080Ti?

  5. What monitor are you using for that 2080Ti?
  1. ok good to know
  2. Ill look around for that
  3. out of curiosity why would it be better to get an ssd of around 500 GB as opposed to the 2 TB ssd, aside from it being much cheaper in price
  4. Ill take that into consideration and look around for one
  5. as far as monitors go, i havent selected one for this setup yet. personally I am looking for a 32" 144hz monitor with a 2560x1440 resolution as i find that to be the sweet spot. curved or not, i have no preference. a couple of choices that have caught my eye is the Samsung C32HG70 and the BenQ EX3203R. I am open to other suggestions in this area.
 
I have the C27HG70. It's a good monitor (don't get me wrong), but wouldn't say it's worth the $450 I paid for it if I were comparing to the ~$350 competition today, but when I got mine 2 years ago, it was pretty much the only show in town. Still one of the few with HDR600 certification though!

On the 2TB SSD, only you can determine how much OS/ Primary drive space you need. I have a 500GB SSD that's not even half full. I've got 4-6 games installed at a given time (of varying sizes) but other than that, pretty much just the OS and small programs. My 2TB HDD holds all my pictures, videos, documents, etc etc data, so I don't keep much "working" data on my SSD. That would probably be different for someone who's doing video/photo editing or something, but again that's all contingent on the size of files you're keeping on your primary drive.
The 1TB SX8200 Pro is usually $120.

how about this 4 tb drive, it might not be around $80 price range now but come cyber monday it probably will
https://pcpartpicker.com/product/2PYLrH/western-digital-red-pro-4tb-35-7200rpm-internal-hard-drive-wd4003ffbx
and instead of getting a 2tb ssd or a 500gb ssd, ill go down the middle with a 1tb ssd, how about this one

edit
updated my list up top so it should be a bit better price wise
