Building my first Pc

Budget (including currency): $1000-$1500 usd

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: StarCraft 2, COD, Fortnite, Content creation, Streaming, and music making.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): No existing parts or peripherals. I guess you can say I'm upgrading from a Mac book pro from 2013. I would like to play at the highest resolution for the budget of $1500 total.

I need more options. I can hold out on a monitor and use a TV short term. I can get a great monitor next week. I would like to have options and narrow them down to build my PC this weekend.

The Team MP34 1TB is a better option for more or less the same money.

 

That gpu is overpriced even for a 2070 Super. A 5700XT would be better value.

I know that the 5700xt is a better value, but hey, he said a better GPU, better means Nvidia (even though both cards perform equally), so I thought I put it. I would've put a 2080S but he doesn't have the budget for it.

The 2070S is a bit faster, but it isn't worth an extra $200 or thereabouts over a 5700XT. I would look for a cheaper version closer to $500 if going with that gpu.

Does anyone know what cooler comes with the Ryzen7 3800x? Is it a wraith cooler? Also is it necessary to purchase a different cooler than the one out the box?
