What's up, I'm building a PC and have put together a list of parts to meet a certain price point (in total don't want to spend over €1000 and will need to buy a monitor). I'm really open to any feedback, for the CPU I currently own this and if it will work with this build then that'd be great, but not sure if would act as a bottleneck for otherwise powerful parts. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

CPU:
Intel i5-4460 (€0)

MoBo:
MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Plus, LGA 1151 motherboard (€114)

PSU:
Corsair VS650 (€61)

GPU:
Asus ROG Strix-GTX1050TI-4G Gaming Nvidia GeForce graphics card (€322)

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz (€74)

SSD:
SanDisk SSD Plus internal hard drive 1 TB (€72)

CASE:
Corsair Carbide Series 270R gaming PC case (€66)

CPU FAN:
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition (€33)

I will be looking to use this PC for some basic audio software as well as casual gaming.
 
I5 4460 is LGA 1150 socket.
That MSI motherboard Z390 is 1151 socket.
That wont work together.
Also i5 4460 is on ddr3,so that ddr4 ram wont work.
Either upgrade your cpu to a 6700K atleast and upgrade to that or continue to upgrade your DDR3 system.

Thanks for the reply, I should have noticed that, I would definitely be looking to upgrade the CPU so. For modifications to that build, I was thinking:

CPU:
Intel i5 6600K (€206)

MoBo:
Gigabyte Z390 UD (€103)

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 2400MHz (€39)

For the motherboard, I have recently upgraded my own build with this motherboard and I find it to work great, no problems (the build in this thread is for someone else). To reduce cost slightly I reckon 8GB of RAM should be okay, at least initially. What do you think, which mobo is better/is 8GB of ram enough?
 
16gb is kind of a standard,and you can see it yourself when playing warzone,with discord opened,it can reach 13gb kf ram usage.
I've made this for myself works great and outperforms your 6600k by alot,and has a much better upgrade path.The VS series from corsair isnt that good,i suggest going with CX series if you cant afford something else.
Here is my version of u build

10100f outperforms 6600k in gaming.
I put a Z490 mobo in there for future upgrades,since z490 will support the new Rocket Lake 11th cpu's,a overclocking chipset will come in handy.
Classic 2x8gb 3200mhz ram
1tb of m.2 ssd storage,more than enough imo.
RX 580 8gb which significantly outperforms the 1050ti.
Corsair 275 airflow,it is nice for what you pay for.
And a cx650 which iwill be more tha enough
