the goal for this strictly gaming pc is to play on high/ultra graphics (in fps, mobas etc.) on a 1440p monitor with a stable frame rate of ~100fps or more. this will be my first gaming pc, so i'm kind of lost in terms of what parts mesh well together and which do not. any advice is very appreciated!

i’ve heard questionable things about the 5700xt (too hot, black/blue screens, random shut downs etc.) is it really worth the trouble and potential additions (water coolers/extra fans) to not just pay ~$100-$150 more for a higher tier 2070s?

also the cpu, is the jump from the 5-3600 to the 7-3700x worth it on a purely gaming pc?

the 450 motherboards worries me purely cause the “bios update issues” i’ve read about. is it really that big of a deal?

the memory, storage, psu, case and fans weren’t that much of a priority seeing as most options are highly rated and i have no personal preference. thank you for the better budget options on these specifically.

The video card I would not buy because of the problems.

Those are driver problems that have been mainly fixed, due to the decreased crashes and reported problems.

Their a bunch of bad cards and still driver problems after 7 months.

How are they bad? They have great value. Agreed, they definitely still have driver problems but there is mainly nothing wrong with the card (depends on seller though, like PowerColor and Sapphire are good but some are pretty bad, example being the XFX THICC cards).

Well that GPU isn't availible,but it is excellent. A flawless build where nothing should be changed. At 1440 Ultra there isn't much of a difference between 3600 and 3700X They perform about the same. I suppose 3700X might be better by few frames for 130$ more and no special features over 3600 as far as I am aware of. It's similar thing with those GPUs. 2070 Super is better,but only slightly and unless you are searching for extra features such as Raytracing and stuff,than RX5700XT is better value. 2060 Super is a card to consider if you wish that new tech and are happy enough with it's performance,which is on average probably well below 5700XT.

i originally built the same pc but replaced the 2070s with a red dragon 5700xt. think i should swap back performance/money wise?

also what else should i purchase to compensate for the additional temp the 5700xt might add?

I can't say about Red Dragon,Power Color Red Devil 5700XT is 1 of the best when it comes to thermals. But it is 1 of the most expensive. If taking 5700XT, 2 most value cards that come to mind that perform excellently are Gigabyte Gaming OC and Sapphire Pulse.

IF it proves to hot,you can always add more fans later. You might also consider Cooler Master NR600, by far 1 of the best casings when it comes to airflow. And with this 2 Noctuas it would have 4 fans. Though you might wish to replace them with some less ugly ones in that case.

The case you selected may or may not be excellent,but it has just 1 SSD mount. If you need Optical drive,than Cooler Master NR400 is something to be considered.

Well you're not taking advantage of PCIe gen 4 ssds, so I would go for this board

do you have a specific preference for ssd/hd memory and mother board options?

Just a few changes and you could probably get the 2080 Super video card.

The BIOS on the motherboard is already updated and really no reason to add the extra fans.

the pc will be hard wired.

as for the monitor you chose, how does is compare to the one i had originally on the list? i didn’t really want to budget when it came to a few parts on this pc, the monitor being one.

The monitor is just as good TN panel instead of IPS but GSync. and if it's hard wired then leave off the WIFI card.

  • gives you a full TB of SSD space for the OS and games.

You might wish to take 2TB HDD. 1TB can last long yes,but it can also fill up very quickly if you play games such as RDR2,COD Black Ops 4 or Battlefield 1. With all additional content those 3 are around 500GB. And if you intend to record some gameplay and at 1440p,you should consider 4TB. You can get those for less than 100$.
