    On that budget, I'd target an RTX 3060.

    With how biased RAGE is to nvidia, i would air on the side of RTX 3070.

    just to say when nvidia starts producing rtx 2060/super cards again  they will b fine for 1440p gaming i feel that people ignore when the 2070 super WAS LITERALLY $500 there to buy and no gpu to buy

    You can pair it with any GPU that you want.
    At that resolution, any cpu with enough cores will do just fine.

    Excellent, you're pretty much all set. On a board like that and at that high of a clock speed, temps in the 80's is good IMO. Not the best obviously but it's adequate and really good for a clock speed to be gaming at on that particular board with those temps.
     
    As @Mister Woof mentioned, it would be a good idea to invest in a cheap cooler that's basically going to put your temps into the 70's(most likely). You'll have no reason to try any overclocking(4.7 GHz is your CPU max boost clock) with that board and your performance is pretty much at its peak with that board. I'd keep it at the 4.5-4.6 GHz and not go over 4.7 GHz once you get a cheap cooler. It should allow that 4.7 GHz max boost clock speed. In which you can set manually if you want a more stable performance while gaming but if you're seeing 4.55-4.6 while gaming, IMO it's best to just leave it be. That's actually pretty stable. If you ever notice it fluctuating lower than that 4.55, that would be a reason to manually clock it to 4.6 or 4.7. Then it'll literally stay at that clock speed and present a more stable(right near max stability) gaming experience.
     
    Also, be sure to check what I mentioned above...
     
    "your CPU clock speed in Windows while you're not gaming. Right click on your start menu bar and go into the task manager. Click on the Performance tab and then click on CPU. What is the Base speed showing there? And what is the Utilization and Speed showing there?"
     
    I'm basically making sure your idle CPU temps are not running at the same temps as you are while gaming. Which I know a quick fix for if they are.
     
    Another thing you can do is setup a more aggressive fan curve. Maybe check in your BIOS right now to see if you have different default fan curves that you can try out. I'm not familiar with your BIOS but most of them will have like different modes to choose from. For example, silent or default or turbo. Something along those lines. If you're currently on silent or default, just going to turbo(or whatever is similar in there), might give you better thermals instantly. Just expect it to be a little louder. Which is why I say, setup a custom curve that will balance out thermals and noise to your personal preference. IF the different modes don't suit what you're looking for.

    If it's boosting that high during gaming, I would recommend a modest cooler like a scythe fuma 2 that you can later re-use down the line which will be suitable for bigger CPUs.
     
    Or, just get a cheap Deelcool Gammax 400.

    Oh gosh, that board is quite basic. It's totally adequate for your CPU though and you're completely fine running it the way you're already running it. What you could do though is see what your CPU is clocking to while gaming.
     
    Load up a game like GTA 5 or whatever demanding game you have to play and use MSI Afterburner to show your CPU clock speed. Note if the CPU clock speed is changing as well.
    If it's one steady clock speed, what is that clock speed? If it is changing clock speeds, what are the min and max clock speeds that you notice it fluctuating from? Also note down the temperature after playing the game for around 5-10 minutes. You could take a couple screenshots of all your MSI Afterburner stats as well if you want. It's also a good idea to check your CPU clock speed in Windows while you're not gaming. Right click on your start menu bar and go into the task manager. Click on the Performance tab and then click on CPU. What is the Base speed showing there? And what is the Utilization and Speed showing there?

    In this scenario a really basic air tower would work really well for acoustics. The power limit or VRM would probably throttle before the CPU did.

    The max operating temp of the i7 9700 is 100 degrees. Anything under that is not going to harm the processor.
    Ideally, you want the CPU running in the 80's as it already is. A reason to upgrade the cooler is if you want a higher clock speed as the i7 9700 is capable of a much higher clock speed than its base 3.0 GHz clock speed. Its turbo boost clock speed is 4.7 GHz, which is an ideal clock speed provided your motherboard and cooler can handle it.
     
    What is your motherboard? You can try to overclock on the stock cooler and keep your thermals in the 80's and very low 90's is still a good thermal provided its stable and doesn't go much above the very low 90's.

    Stock fan will work in so much that it won't damage the CPU - but you'll likely have higher and longer boost clocks (assuming your board is decent) with a better cooler.
     
    You'll also have better quality of life in that it will be quieter.
     
    Also, there's a difference between the Intel stock cooler and the OEM stock coolers like from HP. If I'm not mistaken, the OEM ones are even worse.

    With Nvidia doubling its ray tracing performance across the board (give or take), they're possibly going to release an RTX 3050 and skip the GTX cards this generation

    We haven't heard anothing about the 2660 ti, this time around, we are still unsure if its all going to be RTX or if there will be able GTX.but as for the RTX 3060 ti, romours are saying in December at somepoint, but this is hard to say, especially with nVidias supply issues at the moment this might be pushed back to January, weh it will be easier for them to get stock as the Christmas rush is over

    Expect it to cap out somewhere between 150-250 mbps. Approximately 18-31 megabytes/s. USB wifi adapters are notoriously fickle and their speed depends heavily on the strength of the WiFi signal at your computer.

    I have a very simmilar model, I get about 40-60mbit with same room as the wifi ap.
     
    Its a 1x1 client
     
    And its 150mbit unless you have 40mhz wide channels, and thats very unliekly and a bad idea for 2.4ghz.
     
    So 40-60mbit on a 150mbit phy, esp when there is probably interference in most areas

    im using a TP-link USB Wifi dongle (diff model), i get about ~45Mbit
     
    and it overheats if you use sustained load of 25Mbps or higher for a certain time, and your connection drops
    only way to recover is to unplug and plug it back in.
     
    this happens on my other USB wifi dongle too tho, so it's not a TP-Link issue
    one of the three wifi dongle i have burnt out (just died)
