Looking to upgrade. Do not need a brand new full build.

What I do.. Gaming, some streaming, excel spreadsheet work etc... Currently 1080p gamer but maybe step up in the future. I'm pretty no frills guy, do not need wifi or all the gadgets/colors.

Parts I am reusing from current PC: Seasonic 650 gold power supply 2 SSDs (1 intel, 1 samsung) DVD Burner.

Parts I need: CPU CPU Cooler MotherBoard RAM GPU Case

Was hoping to spend less than 7-800$ USD

Thank you for your time and advice.

That 140mm fan won’t fit, a 120mm would be more suitable

this will do quite nicely for 1080p games (unless you are playing Metro: Exodus, AC: Odyssey, or RDR2)

Went for a Micro-ATX based list, and was able to get an RX 5700
