I've recently been looking at custom builds from micro center but I can't find a good one within my price. Could someone help me find good parts for a pc build for gaming, my budget is 1,250 I can go a bit more than that if needed. I already have everything else for my set up. I live in the US.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

Bro this config is nice but I would recommended a 650w gold PSU because rtx

2070 can require more power so 

If are going to overclock I would suggest good aio or cooler.I would get 3200mhz ram than 3733mhz other parts are best choice

that system will consume under 400we when oc'd and when the system is running at 100%

cpu consumes little under 100w. gpu under 200w. ram about 20, hardrivers about 20. fans + rest about 20. so its 460 max. but i highly doubt that his guy will run his cpu, ram and gpu at 100% all the time.

 

3600-3733 is sweetspot for 3rd gen ryzen. and that 3733mhz ram is pretty cheap. 3733mhz cl17 ram= 3200mhz cl14. And 3200mhz cl14 is much more expensive.

You are right but there is very little performance gains after 3200mhz ram acc to Linus video and 650w PSU is way cheap so I have done my config hope it helps

Sounds like a degradation in quality if it's cheaper but has higher wattage. I'd prioritize the RAM speed over PSU.

Ryzen 7 2700X | Powercolor Red Devil RX 580 8 GB | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 | 16 GB TeamGroup Elite 2400MHz | Samsung 750 EVO 240 GB | HGST 7200 RPM 1 TB | Seasonic M12II EVO | CoolerMaster Q300L | Dell U2518D | Dell P2217H |

I did the build below, solid build, under budget, known brands.

 

Changes:

 

3600 RAM you do not need more than that, from a known brand.

650w PSU from a known brand

500gb NVMe that is enough to get going - adding storage is easy

Meshify Case - it is just a nice case good airflow and you are still within budget.
