How can I make my rig cheaper?

1 minute ago, KazooKiddo said:

Not a huge fan of your build, especially the ssd, psu, case, and periphs but, get rid of the CPU cooler, get a phanteks p360a. 

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

What could I change in replacement to my cpu cooler, psu, ssd and periphs?

Stock, Corsair CX (non-m (lower-end))/Antec Earthwatts(mid-range)/Enermax revolution D.F (higher-end), Mushkin pilot e (higher-end)/ Helix L (lower-end), periphs, go for the mousepad and keeb for now, those are decent deals, hold off on the headset and mouse (if you can even get it lol), I'll get back,

You're looking to cut like $50 and there's a ton of fat on this build. You can drop the RGB RAM, use the stock cooler, get rid of the mousepad, and ditch the headset. You can also just forgo the HDD for the time being, since it's no problem just dropping that in later when you've got some more cash.

im trying to get it down to 1350

     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     

Then try this setup. The GPU is gonna be the one that you gonna struggle to find, so i would swap out the F variant for the 11400 with integrated graphics so you can use it for basic office and chatting use until you can get a GPU.

Wouldn't you need fans for the case?

You can always add 2 extra intakes later, the P300A and P360A at stock configuration punches way above its weight as is. But you do have extra 80$ that i would use to buy Arctic P12 (one of each is 11$, but iirc you can get a 3 pack) if you so inclined.

I didn’t include peripherals tho, when those are added it will be around $1180

Would this be a good motherboard for AMD.

AMD MSI board is fucking horrendous. At that price bracket i would go for a B550M-PLUS TUF from Asus or Gigabyte Aorus series.

Would the intel i5 10600k need a better cpu cooler than the pure rock 2?

what? How? The B550-PRO-VDH-WIFI is a good budget board if you need wifi, and the B550-A-PRO is the best budget B550 board.

yes, but the 11400 is cheaper, has a better iGPU, and performs identically

I thought since it has a lower base clock speed meant it would be slower?

thats just the base clock speed...
it will boost up to 4.3 I think.

But wont base clock speed matter more because that's like a starting point?

IDK much about computers.
