I might have to shop around just want to get a base for everything I need and then price around and see if it's would be a good build for gaming

seems like your paying to much for what your getting

Well i think first brexit effects are kicking in, i pay less euro for all that parts. Other than that i think this pc is missing some balance you pay a lot for looks but if you wanna game with this you spend more on a better GPU. For example your overkill motherboard and case in terms of price.

Your pick of components isn't ideal. 

 

First off - Do you need an M.2 over standard SATA SSD?

 

CPU and motherboard - I would pick 8700k over 9700k because 1 - They're the same performance wise. 2 - 8700k got hyperthreading. Motherboard is way too expensive for CPU of this caliber. You can get a nice Z370 with 8700k for alot less, and get same performance. Or if you want to stick with Z390, there are great Gigabyte Aorus boards and they're much cheaper.

 

Case - 170 pounds for a case? Why? I would not mind the case if you had top of the line system, and had spare money for a case. But here - you can get a nice case for almost 100 pounds less, and spend more on CPU or GPU.

 

AIO - Again, why pay price premium when you can get cheaper AIO or even high end air cooler for that matter.

 

I would get higher quality PSU, like EVGA G3/G2 650W.

 

After all that, you could save up on CPU/Mobo/Case, and spend more money on a GPU and get RTX2080. In the end you will get system that is more powerful in games for the same price.

Main system: i7 8700k 5Ghz / Asus Prime Z370-A / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3000Mhz / Asus TUF RTX3080 / EVGA 750W GQ / Fractal Design Meshify C
