Please Tell me if this upgrade will be a good investment or should I change Diffrent parts of the pc. And if something is too overkill on the upgrade side.

My Target fps and resolution would be 1440p 144hz g sync montior which i will buy mid september ( currently 1080p75hz ) i want at least 80fps on ultra !

Or if I can choose something better , Every suggestion is more than welcome !!

my question is why upgrade?  Is there something wrong with the system?  does it not preform like you want it to?  And if you are to upgrade whats your budget and location for these new items

Why so much power for your PSU? You definitely don't need nearly that much, 550 would do nicely. Also, is this a gaming focused PC? The NVMe drive won't show any benefit.  On top of that, the CPU is underpowered for the graphics card, you'd face a bottleneck in many scenarios. What's your performance target?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explainedˢsͥˡ ͮuͤ ͬˢgͭ ͦᶰoͤ

Honestly I would hold off. My 970 is still chugging away, even keeping up at 2560x1080 77hz in the games that I still play. One question no one has asked yet is what resolution and refresh rate are you shooting for? If it's just 1080p60, I say hold off unless there's something you're trying to do that's having trouble.

I personally wouldn't get the H500i, the H500 series cases by NZXT have terrible airflow. I had an H500i and was pretty disappointed.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

1) I would go with the 5700XT over the 2070 Super. Both cards have approximately the same performance, yet the 5700XT is around 100 USD cheaper. Source

2) What resolution/refresh rate are you playing at? At lower resolutions (1080p) the 6600k is starting to show its age in newer games and can cause jarring frame spikes in games such as Battlefield V. I would also recommend purchasing a 1440p 144z monitor to fully leverage your gpu.
