Not great

 

A 7600X is not a great value compared to a 7600 which will get 99/98% of the performance for €20 less.

 

The 4060Ti is an awful value.

 

Samsung SSDs are nice, but overpriced these days.

 

Also, The 4060Ti is an awful value.

 

You'd also choosen expensive ram that wouldn't have aided performance and the motherboard and case were also on the pricey side.

 

Finally, did I mention that the 4060Ti is an awful value. Well, it is. Only 8GB of Vram basically all but ensures that it will give you awful performance (for the money) in the latest titles.

I can't help with the monitor cause I don't really know anything about monitors.

I might be experienced, but I'm human and I do make mistakes. Expand for common PC building advice, a short bio and a list of my components and other tech. I edit my messages after sending them alot, please refresh before posting your reply. Please try to be clear and specific, you'll get a better answer. Please remember to mark solutions once you have the information you need.

 

Common build advice: 1) Buy the cheapest (well reviewed) motherboard that has the features you need. Paying more typically only gets you features you won’t use. 2) only get as much RAM as you need, getting more won’t (typically) make your PC faster. 3) While I recommend getting an NVMe drive, you don’t need to splurge for an expensive drive with DRam cache, DRamless drives are fine for gamers. 4) paying for looks is fine, just don’t break the bank. 5) Tower coolers are usually good enough, unless you go top tier Intel or plan on OCing. 6) OCing is a dead meme, you probably shouldn’t bother. 7) "Bottlenecks" rarely matter and "Future-proofing" is a myth. 8) AIOs don't noticably improve performance past 240mm.

Better gpu, ATX 3.0 psu, 2TB SSD, case with better airflow, low latency AMD EXPO RAM. The 120mm fan goes inside the back of that case for a rear exhaust fan.

Both 4070s are kinda not great deals atm. They come with way less Vram meaning they will become irrelivant in new titles earlier. They underperform in traditional rendering for their price. You do get DLSS, but FSR is basically only ever around 6 months behind. Also, nvidia cards do better in raytracing, but the wins in raytracing arn't typically as big as the losses in traditional rendering. Nvidia cards have other advantages, but if all your doing is gaming, you'll get no use out of them.

 

A 4070 can be had for €619

A 7800XT can be had for €569

A 4070 Ti can be had for €849

A 7900XT can be had for €853

My personal computers include 3 windows (10/11) machines and a TrueNAS server (and I'm looking to move to dual booting Linux Mint on my main machine in future). While I believe I have an decent amount of experience in spec’ing, building and troubleshooting computers, keep in mind I'm not an expert or a professional and I make mistakes.

 

Favourite Games of all time: World of Tanks, Runescape, Subnautica, Metroid (Fusion and Dread), Spyro: Year of the Dragon (Original and Reignited Trilogy), Crash Bash, Mario Kart Wii
