You won't see much of a difference between 144hz and 240hz, imo spend the money on a 100hz 1440p ultrawide instead.

240hz panel really has no point unless your perhaps pro esport player ?

 

144hz 1440p IPs is a sweetspot for a monitor (imo)

Got this list from a friend. Is this a pc that would last for 5 years or so or is it too cheapskate. Also is it something I would want for competitive gaming.

You could get a better ssd, that one is very budget and sata drives aren't that fast either and that cooler is a little bit weak for an i9 if you're thinking about overclocking

Budget? Use? if gaming, what resolution? what targeted fps? etc

I agree but don't agree.  He can do just fine with the Hyper 212 however taking the CPU to 5.1 or 5.2 or 5.3 will tax that cooler.  So ya a DRP4 is recommended for low noise and exceptional  cooling that is as good as liquid cooling.  It is 85 bucks tho.

I disagree. it runs too hot even at stock. hyper 212 was made for midrange cpu's not for an 8 core beast.

 

imo, get the 3900x with a better cooler and get a better ssd.

if you want a case that looks like that, i think the meshify c looks and will perform much better

Okay, so to make things clear I intend to use it for gaming, I will also be overclocking both the CPU and GPU. I will be buying an Alienware aw2518hf 1920x1080240hz monitor. Even though a lot of people say that I won't be able to see a difference between 144hz and 240hz. I will be playing competitively so I think that it matters. So naturally, I am hoping for 240fps on all low settings in first-person shooter games. My budget is 2500dollars for the pc but I would rather have the pc cost around 2300. Rgb doesn't matter for me, I just want performance. I would appreciate if you don't make too big a deal out of 140hz.

No Hyper 212 is anywhere close to being capable of cooling a 9900K, else why would people be investing in AIOs & custom loops just to achieve >5.0Ghz stable OC for it

 

And anything above 5.2Ghz would likely require winning the silicon lottery, or pushing insane voltages through the chip which produces even more heat.

Why do you have two different memory kits? Either take one rgb or one non-rgb. They are not the same. And going 2 memory sticks is better then goin 4 sticks.

I personally don't see the point in getting a 240Hz monitor unless you are doing esports for a living. If you are going with a 2080 Super a 1440p high refresh rate would be better imo.

For the money you are spending you could get a 2080 ti and 1440p 144Hz screen. Not saying that the 2080 ti is worth it, but just showing you what is possible.
