Building a gaming Pc

Hello, I was planning on building a gaming pc. Now it's going to be pure gaming. I can spend between 1700-1800 dollars I would like a motherboard with wifi as well just in case I can't get a wired connection. Do you have any suggestions, please either just comment the list or make a pcpartpicker list. Thank you so much. I'm sorry if I'm asking for too much. Thank you again. I also I don't care about rgb really at all, but no ugly cases or milk cartons.

I'm assuming your currency is USD? Also, are you needing peripherals like a keyboard/mouse and a monitor?

Do you need a monitor and other peripherals?

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

This build is great for 1440p gaming, with your budget I kept to a black/white theme, if you need peripherals aesthetics can be sacrificed. The motherboard is a z370 WiFi motherboard.

This was fun to make.  We'll start here (as you can tell making things generic and can swap things in/out as OP gives more specifics). 

If you find the case ugly can always swap that out easily.

Should look for a cached drive. Cacheless drives are no good.

 

I'd check that logic if I were you:

https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/WD-Blue-3D-SATA-M2-500GB-vs-Samsung-840-Evo-500GB/m325788vsm1519

While I would say that I picked a much faster NVMe drive for my proposed build, that WD Blue 500GB M.2 is not a trash SSD and it's only averaging 1% slower than an 840 Evo of same capacity (which we all full-well know has a cache).

 

The drive does have cache, it's a re-brand of the Sandisk Ultra 3D TLC.

The motherboards you picked don't even have built-in WiFi.  OP asked specifically for that feature. 

(Didn't even throw in an adapter card to compensate?)

Check out my signature. Our Lord and Savior can't even recommend a cacheless or "d-ramless" drive. I understand that your drive appears to have a cache, I just can't find any info on it.

nvme speed difference from sata is negligible in day to day tasks. A serious benefit from nvme comes from large sustained file transfers and other productivity work.

Can't find any info on it... really???  Did you click on either of my links, because they appear to qualify as info.  It took me 5 seconds of google-time to find those links explaining all about that drive and it's cache-having status.

 

It's not exactly like Western Digital is a no-name brand.  They're not a major player in SSD's I'll grant you but it's not like their products come out of nowhere with no english review sites covering them.

Sure, but if it doesn't break the bank, why build a slower computer?  A lot of the last-stage optimization is waiting on OP to give more input in this thread anyhow.

In the meantime I still had the budget room to put an RTX 2080 in the build rather than last-gen Pascal with no future promise of ray-tracing.

that's not the SSD he was referring to, that was the older WD blue SSD. But it still has a DRAM cache.

Holy Gaben, you are a salty boy. I did click on the links, I saw no specs on how much cache there is. I saw that it said something about it performing fast when the Samsung's cache ran out. Then I saw some marketing bullshit about some special named cache technology on the Sandisk version, but not actual information. Even though you have channeled the divinity of Google and been enlightened to the answer within seconds, you still haven't listed the amount of cache or other details on it.
