Any suggestions for new build?

Budget (including currency): Somewhere around $1200, no more than $1400

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: gaming at 1440p 60fps or higher, I don't really use many other programs other than photoshop for college

A few things I was considering changing that I'd like other opinions on:

Is it worth it to upgrade to a 3700X?

Is it worth it to upgrade to a 2070 Super?

Is it worth it to purchase a seperate cpu cooler, and if so, what should I be looking at for that?

 

Thanks!

3700X wont give you much of a performance boost.

2070 Super is not better than 5700XT

If you want more quiet operation it is worth getting a better cooler but the stock will work fine.

For your workload, no to a 3700X.   You won't really see big enough boost in gaming performance/photoshop to justify the price increase.

 

A 2070 Super vs 5700XT...  These 2 cards are very close in performance and at your current plan for the PC then I would not upgrade.

 

A separate CPU cooler is not necessary except to reduce noise.  I used the included wraith stealth cooler but didn't like the noise.  My suggestion is to use the Wraith stealth cooler first, see if the noise bothers you.  If not, then you saved 50 bucks or so.   If it does, then research CPU coolers.

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 :)

Why are you wasting money on the 3800X ? An R5 3600 as already mentioned would be fine for his needs, but in any case the 3800X is $40 more than the 3700X so not a smart option anyway. 

 

No need for that thermal sheet.

 

You can get an NVMe SSD for the price of that MX500.

 

The ASRock Challenger isn't very good. The Sapphire Pulse is much better.

 

That psu is absolute junk.
