Does this build look good?

I’m upgrading from this current build.
Current: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gjYHzN

 

Any suggestions or improvements?  I went with a 2070 super instead of a used or refurbished 2080.

Edit:  I realized I still need to look for a CPU cooler, but other than that how is it?

I'd try to score the 9600k instead of the 9600, just for future at least.. you could squeeze just a little bit more out of the CPU. I'd also recommend upgrading your PSU, I see it's probably your existing one. More expensive build, with a low tier PSU... just my two cents.

Otherwise, looks pretty good :D


Current System: i7 8700k (OC'd 5ghz), GTX 1070 Ti, Z370 Hero Maximus, 16GB 3000mhz Ram, corsair 460x, 500gb 960 EVO, 750w HXi PSU, 5x ML140 fans, 1440p 144hz Gsync Monitor.

How much do you have to spend overall? The 9600 isn't worth a dime now, compared to AMD's offerings.

I'm pretty sure for gaming I'd get more frames with a 9600k compared to a ryzen 5 3600.

In some games maybe 3-4% more. Otherwise it's identical.

Though there's more to the 3600 than that. AM4 chipsets will be supported up into the next generation of chips, Z390 will not. This will make it a super easy process to upgrade down the line when you choose to do so.

 

Plus its cheaper and the the 3600 comes with a cooler.

 

Get this and spend the saved bucks on a new power supply

Option 1. Get the shop where you buy the motherboard to bios update.

Option 2.

Short Term Processor Loan Boot Kit

AMD will offer affected and qualified users (as described below) an AMD Athlon 200GE Processor, including thermal solution, for short-term use ("boot kit") to perform the BIOS update on their motherboard.

This short-term processor loan or boot kit is offered through AMD warranty services and is available only for qualified users that:

  1. Have made a valid purchase of a 3rd Gen Ryzen™ Desktop Processor and;
  2. Are unable to boot that processor because the user’s current X470/B450 BIOS must be upgraded first.

This service is free of charge with the following condition:

Once you have submitted your claim for a processor loan boot kit, AMD will require pictures of your 3rd  Gen Ryzen™ Desktop Processor and AMD Socket AM4 400 Series motherboard, which clearly shows the model numbers and unique serial numbers as well as a copy of the purchase invoice(s) to authorize the request. Additionally, a summary or copy of communication with the motherboard manufacturer is requested to indicate why support from the Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) is not suitable.

Once the RMA request is approved, the AMD Athlon 200GE processor will be sent with pre-paid return shipping. The processor is provided as a temporary loan to you for the sole purpose of updating the BIOS and must be returned within 10 business days of receipt. It is not necessary to return the provided thermal solution.

To obtain the boot kit, please carefully follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the AMD online warranty claims page: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/warranty-information/rma-form
  2. Fill in your full contact and product details (3rd Gen Ryzen Processor OPN number and serial number)
  3. In the Problem Description field enter "Boot kit Required" (without quotes)

NOTE: The product must be a valid AMD processor with authentic OPN and serial number.

Once the claim is received and approved, confirmation details and boot kit instructions will be provided in a follow up email.

you won't...you might get a few extra frames at the top end...but you'll also get more stutters in thread demanding games. 6 thread isn't much to work with these days.
