Also anywhere I could cut costs without compromising performance too much?

- Don't get an AIO, a good air cooler, like the D15 or DRP4, is like 30$ cheaper and performs just as good

- Don't need to spend money on thermal paste. You'll only lose a few degrees buying premium stuff

- You won't need 750W. Pick up a 550w or 650w Seasonic FOCUS or Corsair RMx unit. Whichever's cheaper

- Do you need NVMe?

If you don't mind AMD gpu the Vega 64 is $100 cheaper. The B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC has bios flashback so you can update the bios without a cpu. If you don't need wifi then the B450 Tomahawk also has that feature.

Winter is Coming.

Strikes me as odd committing to a platform before it is actually released, let alone before one sees independent reviews and benchmarks.


80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
