what would you be using this for?

also i was going to say that he doesn't really need a 650w power supply he could drop down to 550w to save some money.

only difference being the bottom one is a bit cheaper as it's running a 2060 instead of a 2070.

That Cryorig H7 for $110 is way overpriced. The Pure Rock cooler from Be Quiet is about even with the H7 on cooling potential and at a much lower noise and it is a much more respectable $35 USD instead of $110 USD. Though if OP wants to push the OC more with a stronger cooler the Dark Rock 4 is a beast,

Also if no overclocking at all and just at stock speeds stock cooler is enough to save some cash.

My bad, I guess the h7's price must've either spiked or just gone out of stock.

Or I'm just being stupid and the h7 is much more expensive than I'd thought.

  • 2600X just holds better value now than the 2600, considering you want to replace the cooler. For $15, it comes with a better cooler by default and has faster stock speeds. If you absolutely want to go the 2600 + aftermarket cooler overclock route, try looking at the Mugen 5 or FUMA, both of which are around $50 like what you've chosen and are exceptional performers for their price.

  • Like above said, RAM could be dropped to 3000 MHz to save a few dollars, performance difference won't be noticeable and $20 for 200 MHz isn't worth it. However, it's not the worst thing right now, this gap used to be about $30, so I just left what you chose.

  • 660p, cheaper, NVMe rather than SATA, I'd just get this. TLC SATA SSDs have largely been superseded now.

  • $310 for a 1660 Ti is a little too expensive if you ask me, for a little bit more at $40, which you've budgeted out for anyway, you can get a 2060, which will just be straight up faster than the 1660 Ti.

  • The case is a tad expensive for a $1100 build, but cases are very subjective to personal taste, so I can't really criticise it. Choose what you like, that's the important thing.

  • Like above said, you definitely don't need 650W. 550W is probably as far as I would go, but honestly, considering the 2600X shouldn't be overclocked, the 2060 isn't that power consuming, and without overclocking anything, under gaming loads, a 450W will let you sit nicely on the efficiency curve. If you're really really concerned about power draw, because some people do get nervous about it, get a 550W. There's a Seasonic FOCUS Plus 550W for $15 more than this, so I'd get that if you really wanted more than 450W.

  • Works out slightly cheaper overall.

  • Just my opinion.
