New System Build Help

I'm building a pc for my friend who has a budget of $700. He already has a GPU (970) and a 1 TB hdd.

 

Anyone have any suggestions on how to make this list better?

A cooler like the cryorig h5 or a be quiet will get better price per performance then an AIO

just an example what you can get for the price. if you want to add a cooler, don't do aio for that price, get a beefy air cooler

Personally, I would definitely not pay $300 for an i7-6700k. Either go with an 8th gen intel processor with that money, or get an i7-6700k used. $300 for i7 6700k just is not worth it imo at this point in time. You could go with an i5-8600k for around $260 with a Z370 Mobo

Or you could go with what LukeSavenije said, Ryzen is really good bang for the buck as well

INtel is with the shortage really expensvie at the moment. Intel is a great gaming platform, but too high of a price rn

True, especially with the R5 2600 going for $160 you can OC and get some amazing bang for the buck, even if Ashiok spends some money for a decent air cooler
