My First Build HALP!


Novice builder here


I am finally building my first P.C. i have old alienware desktops and what not from the good ole days. ive read constant threads and watched countless videos but im still struggling on my own parts. i watch countless video's on current hardware prices , reviews and what not. but it only makes me more indecisive..


I'm looking for gaming and VR play. not a streamer or anything along that nature. 

since this is my first pc  im struggling on parts my budget is flexible. i currently have case, hard drive, SSD, and 750W gold rated.


 im going R5 2600 aftermarket cooler with some moderate OC. my struggle is choosing MB, Ram, and Gpu


I Was thinking the B450 tomahawk but with current black friday and what not everything is sold out. my second option was Msi x470 pro carbon 


With Ram Prices all over the place i would like semi budget friendly 3000 MHz


GPU- ive been wondering the realm of 1070 TI or waiting a bit longer and getting a 1080.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
