  1. I don't think it will be an issue, just depends on how much you want to push the overclocks, I built one with a 9700k and 2080ti last week, used a dark rock pro 4 and a fractal design meshify c for the case and both the CPU and GPU overclocked fine, CPU had great temps at a solid 5ghz OC on all cores, and GPU didn't have a problem with it's stock cooler getting a decent OC as well, although it is a EVGA 2080ti FTW3 model so cooling is a bit better than most. I don't think you will have any issues going with a Dark Rock Pro 4 or 240mm or bigger AIO for the CPU.

    I want to hear my Xbox One Audio through my PC

    If I remember correctly you can't use the Blue Yeti on Xbox as it does not have support for standalone USB microphones however some have gotten it to work with a 3.5mm audio splitter and using the USB on the Yeti for power, using a 3.5mm auxiliary cable from the mic to an Xbox controller headset adapter with an audio splitter connected but it doesn't work with a headset it's too glitchy only 3.5mm headphones will work without issue. As for hearing all of the audio from both simultaneously I found a video of a guy doing it with an Astro Mixamp after a quick google search, but none of the headsets or mics he used where USB and you do need an Optical Audio cable for the sound to come from the Xbox, here is the video. He was able to hear in-game audio and use party chat on the Xbox while also being in Skype and listening to music from his PC however you have to have a separate mic for the PC when using the mixamp. So he had his headset mic working for Xbox and in the comments said if he wanted to talk on the PC at the same time he had to hook a separate mic up to the PC. I think this is as good as your going to get, as for your mixamp specifically I have no idea if that will work, possibly if you have an Optical Audio input, but even then Microsoft is super picky with what devices are compatible and will work on Xbox it's ridiculous.

    Help me upgrade CPU

    You're going to have to upgrade it, theres no 80+ rating whatsoever and it doesn't even have an 8 pin CPU connector. I wouldn't risk using that PSU. No way. You can get a Corsair CX550M 80+ bronze for around $50 or I think EVGA does international shipping, and you can sometimes score some pretty decent deals on their website.

    New Wifi Adapter Suggestion.

    PCIE adapters or if you really want a solid connection you could do Powerline Adapters. I've used them in the past and I've set them up for clients who love them. Sometimes in older houses they can have some issues so it's something you can try and if they don't work you can just return them but in my experience they're super reliable and you can get pretty much your full speed like its connected via Ethernet.

    Help me upgrade CPU

    I recommend you replace it sooner rather than later especially if it's 5 years old. Don't want to buy a bunch of new parts and have a janky psu fry them all. I've been in computer repair for several years now and I can't even count how many times I've had to tell somone their computer was fried because they got a crap psu.

    It should be enough but you might want to look into getting a new PSU from a reputable brand with an 80+ rating just to be sure. I don't trust janky no name PSUs especially if I'm overclocking. A 550w 80+ Bronze unit would be fine and you can sometimes score those for around $40 depending on what sales are going on.

If you had maybe $150 more on top of your budget I would say go for an i5-9600k, but you don't and the 9400f isn't worth it over the 2600x.

    Exactly! The price to performance for his budget is also much better going with Ryzen than intel.

    Yup, B450 or X470 is where it's at if you're building a Ryzen system right now and want to upgrade to Zen 2 in the future.

    Pretty much what I posted too, except the Aorus Elite is an ATX board and OP is looking for a replacement Micro ATX board so the Aorus M is the best Micro option in that price range.

    Help me upgrade CPU

    In that price range and the two options listed I would say go for the 2600x the 9400f is just as good stock but is beat by the 2600x because it can be overclocked and has much better multi core performance and a higher thread count, but I would wait a couple months for Zen 2 to drop and check out what the 3000 series has to offer. If you need something asap I'd say go for the 2600x. I personally wouldn't put money into buying another 4th gen CPU, once you do that you're stuck there. It's honestly not worth it over upgrading to a modern cpu and motherboard which will be compatible with Zen 2 when it releases so you could even upgrade to that in the future.

    I want to hear my Xbox One Audio through my PC

    Honestly if its a USB headset you can just plug it into the USB port on the Xbox and it should work if its compatible. I feel like buying all this audio equipment was a bit more expensive than just buying a Headset compatible with both. Unless theres a specific reason you have to have the Xbox audio come through the PC. Xbox Party Chat on PC and the Xbox are both the same as I remember there is no difference between the two. Are you like playing PC games and Xbox games at the same time or something, this whole setup is boggling me.
  14. Zen 2 Ryzen especially a 3700x would probably be more than a 25% increase in performance, plus much, much more modern. Upgrading to another 4th gen cpu is essentially just crippling yourself in terms of longevity.

    I want to hear my Xbox One Audio through my PC

    Honestly this all seems a bit overly complicated for what you want to do. Are you wanting to hear the xbox game audio and party chat from the xbox through your PC headset or speakers? Or are you wanting to use the party chat from the PC while also getting your Xbox audio through the same output device? I'm just kind of confused on what you're actually trying to accomplish.
