new build for friend, monitor question

Budget (including currency): around 1500-1700 euros but flexible

Country: Germany

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 1080p AAA gaming plus school work

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): 

Hi all, here is the parts list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/M2jB78

 

GPU might be overkill, the PSU too but it gives it more lifespan.

 

He wants a high refresh rate ultrawide monitor and I found this

LC-POWER LC-M29-UW-UXGA-100-C 29 Inch Curved Monitor , Black: Amazon.de: Electronics & Photo

 

Looks very reasonable but can't find any reviews about it. Anyone know it?

 

He will buy his own buy keyboard, mouse and speakers.

 

Best,

 

JW

If he is in Germany then this will be more accurate with the prices.

 

You can buy cheap windows keys. I personally wouldn't pay 100+ euros for it. Places that sell game codes usually sell windows keys.

 

Swapped a few things around, but performance is the same. Other alternative would be a 12400/F and a B660 board.

Board wise its actually a good price for being a seemingly new b450 although i suggest looking at the local used market for cheaper or better b3/450 or x3/470 boards ~60€

 

Gpu wise yea just buy off ebay since theres a decent amount of used 6800 floating around 450€

I think that's the motherboard I put in my last build. It only had 2 fan headers and one of them was in a really crap place. otherwise, thanks for the list!

You can use fan splitter cables if you don't have enough headers, or there are fans such as the Arctic 'PST' which allow you to daisy chain from a single header.

he now wants rgb fans, so was thinking of the Corsair 4000X RGB which comes with 3 rgb fans at the front. So now my question is about rgb connections on the motherboard as the 5600x cpu comes with the wraith cooler which also has the rgb ring light, so will I be able to connect them all to the motherboard?
