I want to use this build for using the Adobe Suite for graphic and video design, gaming at 1440p 144hz, and casual internet use.

My target price after all sales (Black Friday/Cyber Monday and beyond) is between 1000 and 1400 dollars.

I cannot change any of the parts bolded at the end, I am reusing them from my current build.

You will need thermal compound as well as something to the old compound off the interface plate of the cooler.

 

Get a less expensive motherboard. Without knowing the features required a recommendation is difficult, but ROG STRIX Z390-E would be one option. If WiFi is not needed, Prime Z370-A would save even more.

 

Memory speed is less than optimal.

 

Do you plan to overclock?

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

I already have some thermal compound and have switched this cooler from one build to another before.

Features required for motherboard: 10 USB ports, onboard WiFi, M.2 slot, ATX, preferably an ASUS board.

I will upgrade my memory to DDR4-3000/3200 if I can get a good deal on it (RAM is $$$ right now)

Yes, I do plan to OC.
