Is this build any good?

Planning on upgrading from my current gaming laptop (i7-6700HQ, gtx 960m) to a good pc around christmas time. I'll be using it for games such as AC Odyssey and Cyberpunk 2077 (when it comes out). I will also be doing some CAD work.

I live in the UK, near London.

I don't have that much with zotac mini cards. I would get a different one from a company like evga (kinda personal prefference). you can get a usb wifi adapter, they are like 20 bucks for the t2u. but it's actually sollid and won't regret a build like this.

Then It looks mostly fine, but you should either get a 1080p 144hz display or a 4k 60hz display at this point, 1440p monitors are dead

and get the biggest 1070ti/1080/Vega 56 you can find. Most of the monitors you'll want have free-sync anyways, so get Vega if it's the same price or cheaper.

Also an RX 600 might be out with 1070 performance at under $300 soon enough. Also don't know if 7nm vega will be out by then.


You also don't need the extra fan, could just get a Focus G for a bit less, or an RL06 Pro from silverstone.

4k 60hz monitors are close enough in price that you might as well go 4k so you never have to replace the display

 

games can just be ran at 1080p if the GPU is lower end

Also for CAD stuff look on the UK ebay for Vega FE, check benchmarks but it may have optimizations for those software since it gets some pro level drivers.

My reasoning behind the 1440p monitor was that a 1070ti can still push 60fps at really high settings at that resolution, whereas at 4k the 1070ti will not be able to reach 60fps at very high settings.

Okay...but how that means that 1440p is dead standard, as it actually slowly replace the 1080p (not for E-sports tittles).

1070ti will be sufficient in gaming on 1440p of course not on maximum settings on everything.

It really depends, don't get your hopes up for 60FPS in any AC game from Origins afterwards.

It doesn't matter you can just run a game at 1440p on a 4K display as well, then you always have the option of 4k anyways.

TN is close in price, IPS is probably worth the 300 GBP considering how long you'll have it

Haha true, perhaps not AC. 1070ti should be good for any other game though I think.
