Budget (including currency): $1100ish Murica Dollars

Country: United States of Murica

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming and web browsing, maybe streaming one day

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): 1080p for now with a TN 144hz monitor. eventually 1440p/4K with a monitor upgrade

 

Well, as the title says, I'm in the planning stage of building me a new PC. The one in my signature I may sell to my cousin or use as a living room home theatre setup. With this next build, I'm going for performance and maybe a 5000 series upgrade down the line. Just have some disposable income and wanted to treat myself, y'know?  EDIT: The GPU money for the 3070/6800 is set aside. The 1100 was purely for the rest of the components and my personal aesthetics 

 

Was wondering how this looks to everyone? I plan to use my 1060 until either I sell my current PC to my cousin or when some of the new supply restocks. Leaning towards AMD this time, but may stick with Nvidia. For those wondering, somewhere between a 3070 or 6800 non XT. I've never own an MSI motherboard, but went for it because the Dark Base I've wanted forever has USB-C on the Front panel. Are the MSI boards cool? Far as BIOS workings as my Asus board has been cool far as that goes. Just was wondering. With that said, am I good to go or do anyone have any other recommendations. Appreciate you all taking the time.

I would not get that case. Poor airflow and will have thermal issues with higher end hardware no amount of fans fixes that.

 

Might want the 750w version of the psu just in case.

 

Make sure the fans are speed controllable as some of those kits aren't and then you just have loud fans on constantly at full speed.

I've seen on GN that it's an average case. I just love the design. But I was also looking at the Pure base 500 (Non DX) What do you think about that one?

The dx one is good as it has a front mesh the non dx is just bad.

I wouldn't recommend a $200 case when your budget is around $1000. It's almost 20% of your budget.

 

I will recommend something like this instead...

I have included a GPU as well. Sell you existing GPU and buy this rig. Fans can be bought lateron.

Yeah, I know. The non DX can't compete with the mesh front. I was also thinking about the 802 that suppose to come out in a couple days actually. It's close to the Dark 700 and it has a mesh front panel, so airflow should be better. May wait for reviews on that one.

And I should've preference that the GPU money is already set aside. The 1100ish was for everything else. As I said above, the case was for my own personal aesthetics because I really liked the look of the case. And as I quoted above you, I might look at the 802 since that one is for airflow and close to the Dark Base 700. But I do appreciate your suggestions!

Then why not go with a zen3 based CPU?

I said I planned to upgrade to a 5000 series CPU maybe down the line as they're currently out of stock. So this is like a placeholder in case I did wind up selling my current rig to a family member. So I'd have something to hold me until next year when the CPUs and GPUs stabilize.
