Not pro level, lifelong enthusiasts. Also enjoy games like Call of Duty, single, not online player

im pretty sure not pro level photoshop is fine with a potatoe pc like they used to do that with my old school's pcs. and its very unlikely you'll need more than 16gbs of ram for just gaming. same goes for nvme ssd. imo u spent too much on the cpu too & instead of getting the 9600k u should get a better gpu & youll gain more gaming performance. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/kks7LJ

Thank you very much...that is a huge $$ difference. My idea was to spend that much to make it "future proof" for at least 5-6 years...my current system is 8 years old. How far out do you think your build for me would hold up ?

Can I ask which case you are going to use ?

Do you think you'll see the advantages of NVME ?

I only wonder if using an SSD version will work for you. The NVME is great in benchmarks but in real life the SSD at 550MBps is pretty darn good.... Or have you considered those that run at 1700MBps ? Like Crucial P1 1TB ?

Case is a corsair carbide 200R I'm re-thinking I could scale back on some things like the ssd and amount of memory...

What are you thinking about the memory ?

That's better but if you can find some ram that is 2666 which the processor takes. The motherboard may or may not have an approved vendor list and being 3000 speed will not hurt anything.... except your wallet !! Sometimes the faster speed on sale will be cheaper..... So if your okay with the price.... even though the processor will not benefit from it.... go for it !

  • better CPU
  • liquid cooling
  • much cheaper SSD
  • better GPU
  • added a case
  • cheaper PSU (without overkill wattage)
  • changed Wi-Fi adapter
  • changed Windows version

(Minus the added case, the parts cost the same but are much more powerful)

Damn,,,,thank you. I forgot to add, I did buy a case already....a corsair carbide 200R I have zero experience with liquid cooling...? will have to read up. Dont know about the seasonic psu brand..?

but that is impressive....

I'm glad i have started asking for help

seasonic is pretty solid for power supplies, and installing aio's isn't difficult. I'm sure there are some walkthroughs on installation of them.

i'm rethinking the build I thought was perfect for me....I'm a quick study with walkthroughs too...utube is as better than a university.

SeaSonic is generally a good PSU brand, I've used a SeaSonic PSU for at least 6 years and it hasn't has any problems.

(Also, if you can spend $5 more on the card reader, this one would be a lot better (more USB3 ports and better reviews): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01K0RPTN0/)
