I would go for AMD personally. But Intel works as well. Also I'd probably get cheaper memory and wouldn't spend 170$ on Windows 10 since a license key only costs like 5$. Otherwise the build seems pretty solid. I don't know much about monitors so I can't give you an input on that.

If you are going to go only 1 monitor at 1440p, go with a 3070.

Why though? The 3080 will be better in the long term, even if he can't make full use of it at the moment.

I definitely WON'T be buying windows for $170 LOL. Yeah I'll prolly buy it from Kinguin or something. Thanks for the input.

Well, it is a 165hz monitor and I would like to crank every setting to max and get as close to 165 fps as possible in all games. For instance, even GTA V might give the 3080 a run for its money if every single setting is maxed out.

I'd go for an RTX 3070 instead and put the money into faster memory, and probably 4x8GB, but I'm an overclocker so, 2x16GB on that board probably works as good, I think it's daisy chain anyways. 

Yours faithfully

Yeah that makes sense. Personally I'm a hardcore gamer so I like to eek out every last FPS from my games lol. Thanks for the input.

Also I understand that AMD has some kick ass cpu's out right now, however, I'm not familiar with them AT ALL and from what I've seen, AMD's offerings aren't that much better for the price (in Canada) than intel so I just thought I'd play it safe and go intel. Plus I'm familiar with overclocking on intel only.

Thing is, the best clocking DIMMs are 8GB (tho 16gigabit IC's are a thing now so 16GB single ranked sticks exist) usually and the 16GB dual ranked ones usually clock quite a bit worse. Speaking as someone with 32GB, Nothing really comes near using that, and probably won't for a while, so 32GB is enough for gaming for another while, however 64GB wouldn't clock as good too, to it's a balance about how high the XMP or manual OC is and how much memory you need. 

Yours faithfully

Sure, but they are still going to get amazing performance form a 3070. If they really want to get every last bit of power, then sure, go for the 3080.

I would rather get a 5600x, a decent b550 board and skip the cooler. And keep the change for the future.

And for SSDs I would get something like this....They all perform similar to 970 evo.

Also, windows keys can be had fr cheap from sites like kinguin, scdkeys, eBay, etc.

It's a solid build. One can quibble over one or two part choices, but nothing that would significantly alter performance. That said, a perusal of Zen 3 reviews with benchmarks for the games you prefer may or may not alter your choice of cpu. 

 

 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

If you have the money lying around then this is a beast. Otherwise it is a bit overkill. Especially now that you can make a budget intel cheaper than you can make a budget AMD right now, atleast price wise in the U.S. That is because everyones selling out the AMD processors in the U.S. driving up AMD parts. 

 

Depending on what you are doing and what kind of games you like to play. You won't need this much of a beast.
