That samsung 980 SSD is not a good deal for a dramless gen 3.  The only reason I have one is because I got it cheap on craigslist.

 

OP, If you want a white GPU you're gonna get railed on price, but the white 3070 is cheaper than that white 3060ti.

  • The 5600 is the exact same CPU as the 5600x, just get the 5600.  It performs identically.
  • The V5 is overpriced for cooler for a 5600.  Any basic 4 pipe 120 is plenty for a cool chip like the 5600.  If you want a really big cooler, this one can actually kick off some serious wattage and is about $20 more than the V5, but would be able to cool any CPU you'd ever buy:
  • The Kingston NV2 is a solid 2TB gen 4 that only costs $50 more than the samsung 980, which is gen 3 1TB.  If you really only want 1TB the NV2 1TB is $10 less than the 980 1TB.  I think you'll want some space fo these games though, they're pretty big these days and only getting bigger.
  • I'd assume you want a white PSU for white cables, and TT GF1 Snow is a great 750w with white cables.  
  • You can get 3600MHz white RGB RAM for $15 less.  It'll be more likely to run in sync with the 5600's infinity fabric than that 3200MHz kit.  You can also get 32GB easily with your budget, so you'll never have to think about it again.
  • The intel AX200 fits right into the little m.2 wifi port on the motherboard and works the same as integrated wifi.  Most 'integrated' boards actually just have that exact chip mounted vertically on the rear I/O
  • Almost all of the black PCB on the motherboard will be covered by your GPU, case, and cooler, so it'll still look almost completely white. 

Budget (including currency): $1000 USD

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming mostly in 1080p (maybe 2k in the future) with high FPS. Games are things like Minecraft (with ray tracing), Destiny 2, Call of Duty, Forza, F1 22, etc...

Other details PC part picker list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/bk87qm 

not all prices shown there are accurate... The CPU I got for $150, the Motherboard I got for $200, 3060 ti was $450, case was $125. 

Wondering if all the components fit together well or if I have any major weak points or anything I over did that I could save money on. I was going for all white with lots of RGB so I know I over spent a bit for that but that's fine

Was hoping for $1000 build but I'm already at $1300 so big RIP to me

There's a cheaper B550 board with the same colors you want. Also the 5600X does not offer alot of advantages compared to stock 5600. the 6650 XT is cheaper and it performs similarly to the 3060. I also chose a cheaper yet still aesthetically pleasing case with good airflow and 3 fans included.

Most of the components are white-colored too, even the PSU

Actually, this GPU would be a good deal.  It's new so there should be no issue, and if it doesn't work you'll get your money back:

 

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 VISION OC (White) Non-LHR - NEW Open Box | eBay

 

I'd highly recommend it, I've bought like 5 GPUs on eBay over the years and never had an issue.
