  1. I had issues booting from an m.2 in the past (would work sometimes than crash the rest of the time) so I was thinking I'd go back to a sata ssd, but now that I've read up some more do I just need to format the m.2 as a boot drive or something for it to work reliably? Apart from the cpu cooler the case was the part I was most unsure of so thanks for these pointers. And the rest of the advice is super helpful too, cheers!
  2. Budget (including currency): 1500 GBP Country: United Kingdom Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Modern games like Doom Eternal etc, and some light software development work too Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i7-10700K 3.8 GHz 8-Core Processor £357.89 @ Amazon UK CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition 42 CFM CPU Cooler £29.99 @ AWD-IT Motherboard MSI Z490-A PRO ATX LGA1200 Motherboard £129.98 @ Box Limited Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory £59.95 @ Amazon UK Storage Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive £117.78 @ Amazon UK Video Card Asus GeForce RTX 3070 8 GB STRIX GAMING Video Card Case Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C ATX Mid Tower Case £119.86 @ More Computers Power Supply Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply £104.99 @ AWD-IT Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £920.44 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-09-29 15:21 BST+0100 Ideally I would like to game at 1440p and 144hz which I think this system should pull off? I'm not sure if I should invest in a more expensive cpu cooler or not, or if I should get more fans for the case, but advice on any aspect of the theoretical build would be much appreciated! I need bluetooth capabilities too but as far as I know I can just get a dongle for that, if I should go for a specific wireless card then I'd appreciate the suggestion too. If you have any good recommendations for monitors too I'd like to hear them (I think I'll pay for a monitor outside of the budget) Thanks advance for the help!
