Building a new gaming pc around 1200-1800 EUR

Hello,

 

Looking to build a new gamning pc as the current one is 5 years old and will be given to another family member. The only part i might recuperate is the SSD (850 Evo series 250GB ssd). I also want to possibility to set up some VR games. Target budget is around 1500 EUR.

 

After some research I'm looking at an intel build: i5-8600k cpu paired with a GTX 1070. As it's the first time I'll be building a pc, I'm wondering if I made any stupid mistakes and if my choices for mobo, cooler (liquid ones acutally seem easier to install?) and power supply, fans etc make any sense. I'm not sure if i'll have every part needed to build a working pc if i ordered this list (i almost forgot thermal paste for instance).

 

A recommendation for a new monitor is welcome aswell.

Looks fine. I wouldn't necessarily say that liquid coolers are any easier to install than air coolers though (sometimes they can be more difficult). As for a monitor recommendation I would say the Dell S2716DG (1440p 144hz G-Sync). It sometimes has some banding issues, but it's a steal compared to similarly speced monitors. Not sure about availability in Europe however.

I personally don't think it's very balanced, going to overclock the i5 8600K just for a GTX 1070? Besides you didn't mention any SSD

Would you recommend upgrading the GTX to a 1070TI or 1080? Or downgrading the i5?

 

I'm going to use an 250GB samsung SSD that is installed in my current pc.

If you can change the 1070 for a 1070 Ti that would be enough for the most part as once overclocked the 1070 Ti is a 1080.

I would go with the i5 9600K for the same price and a Z390 motherboard.

Winter is Coming.
