https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gYyQDx My version. It is going to be a little more powerful. I went with a rtx 2070 super because RX5700xt drivers are really bad now. If you don't build this until they get fixed, go with 5700xt, but for now 2070 super is better. I changed power suplly for evga br is kinda bad. I got a corsair 650 gold rated fully modular psu. Also, got an nvme ssd of 250 GB cause it is only a boot up drive and a few games. I also added a 1TB hard drive. Also got faster memory(RAM)for less. Also got a better AIO(liquid cooler) which you should be able to overclock your CPU just fine with.
