I would wait for 9th gen and maybe the rtx 2070. Also for gaming school and youtube an NVMe SSD is probably a waste of money. You'd be better off grabbing a 500gb MX500 or 860 evo

A 2k build for school sure is something! :D

 

I also agree into getting a G2 PSU

I was going to suggest swapping out the 750W EVGA G3 for a 550W Seasonic Focus Plus Gold, but they're both the same price anyway. So you may as well stick with the EVGA G3. You can save $20 with the EVGA G3 550W, however.

 

What monitor are you planning on using with the system?

Unless you're using a high refresh rate monitor or also streaming to twitch while you game, an 8700k is probably going to be overkill for gaming and watching youtube videos. Could probably save a bit of money with an 8600k or lower instead.

 

I'd consider a different case as well, as the 460X is pretty pricey at $130 for what it is, though I guess the 3x included RGB fans are to blame for that and you may end up paying more if you buy a different case and then also buy a 3x RGB fan kit.

I really want to give your post an "agree" for the SSD comments, but I equally want to disagree with the RTX 2070 suggestion. :D The used 1080ti option would be better than RTX2070, unless you really need that RayTracing in your life...

I just wasn't gonna go and recommend used 100% because some people don't like to go used. If OP is fine with it by all means that's probably the best option. It' just some people aren't always comfortable with it, plus I mentioned rtx 2070 because it's also possible 1080 prices could drop when it comes out.

You can get a pretty good used 1080ti for that much off eBay.  Also, the G2 and a few other PSUs are better than the G3, iirc.

I want a warranty on my gpu

So why are you building a new system if there's nothing wrong with your current system?

check the I/O connectors on your case, if it's standard then you can replace the board with an m-atx Z370/z390 board and get a 1080ti/2080 instead.

... And removing the 8700k to use it in another system doesn't void the warranty? :D

It's standard. It's a [crappy] mATX Z370 motherboard.

i was referring to the power switch, power LED, etc. connectors on the case, just in case it's all bunched up together or so.

https://www.zdnet.com/article/ftc-warns-phone-makers-its-illegal-to-void-warranties-over-third-party-parts/ apparently it's illegal for them to reject warranty for replacing it with 3rd-party components, so take it up to your DA if they reject the warranty.

Ohh, you mean the connectors from the front case panel I/O to the motherboard for Pwr, Reset, HDD LED, etc? I assumed you meant check the Rear I/O location to see if it was ATX format or BTX. Could always replace the case as well if front panel connectors are an issue, especially since they've already picked out a case with TG side panel and RGB fans.

that was it, i always noticed the I/O being proprietary(or at least unmarked) alot more often than power connectors on older prebuilt motherboards, so might as well warn him about it.
