some things to add onto those edits, don't buy an a400, it's lack of dram makes it almost as slow as a hard drive and is barely useful compared to an ssd of a similar pricepoint, the l5 lite 3d. 3200mhz ram is slightly overkill so i'd drop that to 3000mhz.

Changes + Reasoning

GPU

Since all you really need out of this machine is a display, your best bet would be to use your old graphics card to run your monitors (correct me if i'm wrong here)

Power Supply

You don't need a crazy amount of power when you have a small gpu, if you want to be safe/add headroom for future upgrades you should bump the wattage up to 650w

CPU

Since I changed out the integrated graphics for your old gpu I added a 2700 so you can render speedy quick

Ram

I changed the ram from 4x8 to 2x16 because generally if you have a dual channel board/cpu it's not gonna be great for your ram controller and is potentially gonna fry it.

My suggestions:

  • Drop the motherboard to a tomahawk b450 max, the current board is overkill

  • Change the SSD to a MX500 unless you truly need a nvme drive

  • drop the ram speed to 3000mhz

  • drop the wattage to 650 unless you're planning any large upgrades in the future (watercooling, sli gpus etc..)

any kraken cooler is bad value, if you're really only looking for aesthetics for the cpu cooler i'd just go for a evga clc, those are the best aios on the market iirc.

for an air cooler which would be much cheaper i'd suggest a mugen 5 rev. b.

  • 860 evo and 970 evo are bad value, but if you aren't looking for that I guess it's ok.

  • Ram is overly fast, generally 3000mhz is good enough for Intel systems

  • G2 is better than g3, also rmx is better than g3 so i'd suggest that over the g3

Other than that looks good

1070 prices have skyrocketed since the launch of 20 series cards, seeing that they have no longer been produced by Nvidia.

the 2060 has been out more than long enough to prove that it's a good card and it's not worthwhile to get any 10 series cards unless used.

Probably a good 6/10

120mm aio's are a waste of money

no point in getting a 2600x as opposed to the 2600 if you're getting an aftermarket cooler

an x470 board is overkill for a 2600x

3200mhz is also a wee bit overkill

860 evo is bad value

g3 isn't as good as g2

You're gonna need a case

My recommendation:

Drop ram speed to 3000, get a steel legend, mx500 instead of 860 evo

what would you be using this for?

generally, the best price to performance AIO is either the Corsair H100i, the Evga CLC 240 or the Deepcool Captain 240ex. The clc being better for performance (louder but better overclocks) the captain being better on silence (not as good for overclocking but cheaper) and the H100i landing in between.

You could save a lot of money if you went for an air cooler like a mugen 7, a le grand macho or a noctua d14 or something of the like.

  1. you could chop the ram speed to around 3000mhz, as that's generally higher end.

  2. AIO's are generally not as cost effective as a good air cooler

For the difference between the 1070ti and the 2080, Nvidia has stopped manufacturing 10 series cards, causing the price of new ones to have spiked as the remaining stock's price is being driven up by the retailers. Not to mention that the 1070ti roughly equals a 2060 whereas a 2080 equates to a 1080ti. Not to mention the new turing architecture in the 20 series cards which is much better for streaming/recording. In 2019 a 10 series card isn't really a good option.

  • Better Gpu
  • Changed to a good, cheap case
  • Better Psu

  • Removed CD drive, basically useless in this day and age
  • Better Keyboard
  • Better Headphones
  • Dropped the speakers, not really useful for most people, plus if you really need them a bunch of lower end monitors have inluded speakers
  • Changed hhd to a ssd, so you can potentially add a hard drive later on

the pulse is also pretty solid, not a bad idea to go with it.

if you can find the model number of your ram i'd figure out where to buy identical ram, some ram might not be compatible (different timings/speeds) so it's best to get identical ram.

Intel is still a bit better for gaming, but bear in mind that the cpu is basically irrelevant when it comes to 1440p or at least not significant. It'd be better to get a 2080 and a ryzen chip than a intel chip and a 2070.

For a 2080/2080ti, getting a 1080p 144hz monitor would be a waste of money, you could be driving an ultrawide 1440p display if you wanted. Also at 1440p the cpu becomes almost irrelevant, so for the most part a i5-9600k is the best gaming choice cpu-wise.

The 660p will slow down as it's cache gets filled. it's old technology and isn't really that great. The only reason it's cheap is because they're trying to get rid of them.

user reviews are not a reliable source. Most won't be going in depth enough for it to be actually good.

it's a poor idea to get a hhd to boot off of, espeically when you can just get a ssd and then get a hard drive for storage later on.

the boards are more or less equivilant, so whichever that is cheaper would really be best.

alternatively to paying more, one could also just overclock the ram.

I would never suggest a old 212 evo on a new cpu, it's meant for old quad cores and will not hold up for the most part compared to some other coolers.

Instead of getting a 860 evo i'd go for a mx500 personally. Or a l5 lite 3d, both of which are better value than a 860.

other than that it seems solid.

To anyone seriously considering this list, it's bad. I wouldn't suggest going for this kind of thing for 2k Aud

Rn I don't have the time to make a list but i'll come back to this later on
