Hey there,

 

Where are you located? What's the budget you are working with? What monitor will he be using (resolution and refresh rate)? Any specific games or everything across the board?


That's a beefy motherboard, so other than your budget - you're not limited with the choice of components.

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 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I live in the UK, no budget as if i am going to build one, going to build a good one. 

 

Well in that case I have not much to add to what @Fasauceome suggested above. I'd either go with a 3700X or 3900X - all or nothing ;) Maybe even consider a Gen 4 SSD, it's not going to increase performance in games, but you got the chipset for it already, so why not.

The MSI cases are not exactly known for their exceptional airflow.

Hi with the memory and the storage just 2 x memory and 1 x storage of what you have put on your list would be enough?

double the memory I added? 32GB for a gaming PC is already quite excessive, I wouldn't recommend 64GB even with an unlimited budget.

Thanks for your help, most of the parts have arrived now, i ordered the CPU but by mistake i brought the AMD RYZEN 7 3800X CPU EIGHT CORE 4.5GHZ

Are these CPU as good as the one you listed? Or is it best to get it swapped?

The 3800X has 4 less cores, since this is a gaming PC you should hardly be concerned about that. The 3900X is really excessive so basically you saved money in a good way.

Adata SX8200 Pro 2TB is cheaper and better value.

The MP 510 is great but I gotta say you're paying for some pretty premium, non gaming parts.
