Motherboard requires flashback, with the spare budget you can upgrade any part. Very close performance to any other build in this range. Best price to performance ratio.

Optional, drop the Intel 535 Series 360 GB M.2 and the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB and add a EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB XC BLACK GAMING Video Card for 299 and save 20 buck but get a bit more GPU speed but drop some storage, i preffer a better base where you can easy upgrade your pc with only a GPU later on.

First time poster, long time lurker. Was sitting on this build for a while but made the leap to sign up and post it.

Does anyone else notice that "The Reignbow by Maddjester" Is priced at -$920 without the cost of the RAM or the GPU?
Also The Rayzen by Serinox and Tarantula by Wolfshadw don't have direct links to Amazon as it explicitly says in the rules.
Please make sure to follow the ground rules below. Any builds over budget will be disqualified.

Here are the ground rules:
  • Provide direct links to the Amazon product pages of each component — we encourage users to use PCPartPicker's System Build for speedy construction. Do not post a link to your build, but rather please be sure to export as BBCode and then edit with the product page links for a quick copy/paste to the forums.
According to your OWN RULES there are 3 builds that need to be disqualified that we are voting on.

I had to go with Seeing Red as all the builds are almost mirror images of each other Seeing red did go with and did leave himself some head room with a slightly bigger power supply for upgrading in the future. Thats just my Noobs take on it.
