Help With My First Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,


This is my first attempt to ever build a computer. I’ve upgraded basic stuff on my pre-build before but i’ve decided to take a jump into building my own pc. I’m looking to build a gaming/editing hybrid pc. 


I’ve done some research but my knowledge is pretty minimal in terms of building so i’m hoping someone can check my work and see if there is any potential issues with my planned build


CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X

MB: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite ATX AM4 (or other options?)

GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 2070 Super (White)

Case: NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower

PSU: Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold ATX Fully Modular (or other options?)

Memory: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32GB (2x16gb)

Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 1TB M.2 2280 NVME SSD (or other options?)

Cooling: NZXT Kraken X63 98.17 CFM

Monitor: LG 34GK950F Ultrawide (3440x1440p @ 144hz)

I think i’m pretty set on the CPU/GPU, but i’m open to options for the Motherboard, PSU, Storage and Cooling. I’ll probably get a mechanical hard drive at a later point so exclude that. 


Thanks for your help!!
