I've done a fair bit of research bit fpr a first build I want it to go as smoothly as possible and I know that this community is great for this sort of thing so i thought i'd join and just ask for some help from a lot smarter people to check compatibilty etc. I saw something about the USB on the case and the Motherboard havnig some issues that i could do with some help on?

 

 

Any help or advice would be great - issues/better valued parts/tips -, Cheers

If you're only gaming a 3600 will be faster than a 2700X

 

Also something to be aware of is that the case you chose had bad airflow, if you really like how it looks it'll be fine. But a P300A or a Meshify C has better airflow for around the same price.

for roughly 800 pounds you can get this

things to note:

1. if you are mainly gaming this CPU would be better, plus its cheaper

2. better motherboard by a bit

3. ram without the RGB tax

4. 1 TB harddrive, you can go with a 500 gb/2 TB combo if you'd want, but would highly suggest getting the A2000 over the P1 because its TLC and will be better as a boot drive

5. faster GPU, should be plenty for 1080p

6. much better PSU, for not much more

7. case has better airflow

i didn't personally have any issues with the usb, everything was plug and play for me. i would recommend a different psu, wattage is fine, just not a great psu afaik.
