New build 1st time

Hello good morning/day/evening people,

 

This is the first PC that I build and I wanted to know if the CPU and the GPU bottleneck each other.

Out of the components in the list I've already bought the Monitor and the GPU. They were on sale at the time I bought them.

My objective is to play any game with a resolution of 1080p and 60fps between high and ultra (don't know if this is realistic with this configuration but there is that).

My budget is between £1000 and £1700 and I am currently living in the UK.

For the OS I will be *cough* legally using Windows.

Why did you get mid range GPU with high end CPU? You could've went for  8600k with more powerful GPU, that would've been much better choice. You just loose so much FPS with RX580.

Did not know they were a mid range GPU to be honest and also did not know that RX580 lose FPS

Well, you can return it at some stores if you really want this. But with some small changes (or just keeping it this way) you can still use it. This psu is much better btw. If you want to take a look yourself, just look up the psu tier list down my sig

If I were you i would return it, its not worth it believe me. With that budget you could be playing GTA 5 at 110fps full settings at 1080p or Fortnite at 160fps.

If you really want to go with the 8700k, then try and return or sell the rx 580 and at least get a vega 56/gtx 1070.

 

Heres a list of reference for PSU shopping, I recommend anything from tier S to tier B at 650w.

evga 3070 ultra

samsung 128gb, adata swordfish 1tb, wd blue 1tb

For your build, don't get the 212 Evo. It's no longer the best cooler in it's price bracket.

The GPU isn't a terrible option, especially if you want the included games. You should have aimed for something like the Vega 56 though, as you won't make the most of 144hz unless you're playing eSports titles. Even then, I'd have just waited until CES to see if the rumors are true on what they're going to release.

Nice effort, but pointless to do it like that. You should have used the UK PCPartPicker. Prices are not directly comparable.
