Hi,

I am in the process of designing a new build for myself. It will be used for moderate to heavy gaming and remote working. I cant decide between a 3070 or 6800 (That's if I can even find any available). The rest of my build is as follows.

Case: BeQuiet Dark Base 700
Case Fans: BeQuiet Silent Wings 3 140mm (2 front input 1 Rear Exhaust 1 Top Exhaust)
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S Chormax.Black
MB: MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB
SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1TB
PSU: Corsair RMx 650w

I would love to hear people thoughts or suggestions.

Case and case fans - OK. CPU also OK if you want to upgrade it later. If not, get at least 5600X.

Noctua NH-U12S is OK for 3600 and 3600X. Should work for 5600X too. However if you want to upgrade to CPU with more cores later OR if you want quieter operation/better cooling, get something better. Like Be Quiet Dark Rock 4 for 3600X, 3700X and 5600X CPU. And Be Quiet Dark Rock 4 Pro for hotter 3800X, 5800X and all 39xxX and 59xxX line CPUs. Alternative Noctua model is DH-N15 (available in black color too).

GPU - at today - one which you can get without paying a price of good used car for it. Otherwise both mentioned are fine. especially if you want to upgrade CPU and play above 1080p later.

The rest is fine.
