Budget (including currency): $1550 - $1600

Country: United States of America

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Emulators (Cemu and Yuzu [both have some problems with AMD cards hence the NVIDIA because its more stable with it]), Astroneer, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, OBS (for light streaming nothing to big),Code Vein, Warframe, The new COD Modern Warfare, Sekiro: Die Twice,Borderlands: 3

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): 

I want to play at 1440p
60-144hz is preferred

here is the parts list: 

-I want to play at 1440p
 

-60-144hz is preferred

 

-I have no plans of changing the ram to another type since this piece of ram was chosen after i got a price/performance that i was comfortable with. meaning that yes this particular ram is in here for the rgb factor since i had a couple more to spare

- My Wifi router is not in my Room where my PC is due to house size, hence why wireless adapter also the headphones I'm getting will be bluetooth as well so that's another reason (for your info i do not have wifi 6 so if there is a cheaper alternative wireless adapter that's just as good let me know)

-I picked the MSI version of the RTX 2070 SUPER mainly because I liked its price for performance, but also because i am not comfortable with manual overclocking for right now so i chose this card to be compatible with MSi afterburner's automated overclock that should keep everything stable ( it also fits well with the rgb software on the ram and the motherboard which is a plus)

- keynote: I will not back away from the Nividia card to a AMD card. This is mainly because the main emulator I play on, CEMU has some bugs when playing games on AMD cards another thing is that i personally feel a bit safer with the Nividia card in terms of software

- I am not planning on doing any extreme overclocking as of right now, however I would like to do some minimal overclocking so let me know if this PSU is enough

- due to how pcpartpicker is with compatibility between air coolers and ram, decided to go on the safe side with a AIO and I'm also planning of upgrading later down the line in the next 3-4 years so i should be good before the AIO dies from usage (i heard AIO's last up to 3-4 years before the liquid becomes unusable). I also just like how much nicer AIOs look anyway

- Assuming everything goes well in the RGB software (ya know with ICUE and MysticLIGHT) I want my color theme to be Amber/Gold with black and ill probably add some red to cable extensions when i buy them down the line

Well now that I said that is there anywhere that I could improve a bit more on in the NVME, Wireless adapter, AIO, Thermal Compound, and PSU department

I am planning on ordering these parts by the end of June to early July

I would get an air cooler over that if you cannot oc or use pbo. maybe like a nactua or be quiet. unless its purely for astetics.

I think that’s a good build. The only thing I would change is the motherboard. At the time you are planing on buying the parts, b550 will be out so I would go for one of those.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

if you can squeeze a 3700x by shaving money off other parts I think it would be better for VM's. but alas that build is good overall. 

I heard roumrs that the price of the b550 might be the same as x570 so better off getting a x570. but who knows untill they are out.

I mean its only like $80 more then that air cooler is like $40 less and will probably do better than the h100i. 

Im just saying what I would do but you seem to know whats going on so theres no need. l

You're wasting massively on the pointless AIO. Use the saved money on a better board (X570) at the very least. The B450 Tomahawk is very much not worth 120$

Drop the Seagate drive if your data means anything to you. Theres are extremely unreliable.

 

Also change the power supply to a Corsair RMx or BitFenix Formula/Whisper

There is that too. I have not used the stock but I do hear good things about it. You can always get a better 240mm rad later on too.

i see a western digital blue 2 tb for roughly the same price but its 5400rpm, do you have any recommendations of a 2 tb HDD around the price of the seagate?

I'd buy an IronWolf or WD Red. The speed is irrelevant in HDDs since the difference between 5400 and 7200 for the average user is very mininal
