First Build

Nanomarine
 Share

Hi guys, I plan on building my first real gaming PC this year. I will be coming from a PC with a 1050, 8gb ram, and an i5 4570. I plan on gaming at 1440p 144hz and I'd like to build a PC that will last for a few years and still be able to run games at max or almost max settings.

This is currently what I have picked out to build. I am open to changing some parts.

Don't worry about getting a black drive, theyre loud and don't have a great performance increase. If you want fast drives, go all SSD. Otherwise a blue drive will do just fine.

Looks fine. The Arctic Silver thermal compound is not really necessary as the Dark Rock Pro 4 comes with a tube of compound.

I've been looking at the Ryzen 7 2700x and while it is rated slightly worse, it is cheaper the the 9700k. Would it still be a nice rig if I used the Ryzen instead of the i7?

Yes, it could still be a nice rig. The 2700X has slightly lower gaming performance, but not enough to be really noticeable in most titles.

Would you say the 2070 is a decent card or should I get something else? I plan on staying with 1440p for a while.

More gpu power is almost always a good thing. As time goes by games become more demanding of the hardware.

I don't think the RTX 20 series are worth an investment. You could get a 1080Ti and for your 2k monitor, it will suffice. The main goal of the RTX 20 series seems to be based on the assumption that game developers would opt for real-time ray-tracing and DLSS. Well, that could take a while to really see the full power of those GPU's. Sure they can be cool to show off playing SotTR and Battlefield V, but they're not worth the price.
