This is a great site. It has been a while since I have built a system so time to build a new one (going to let my GF son use my old system) and was going to go Intel but decided to go AMD (save some $$ to put elsewhere in system) and so far this is what I have came up with.. just have not yet picked ram yet (all this is still planning stages) and a few other parts so this is for gaming (also do a little online tabletop RPG D&D/Pathfinder etc)
Mainly for gaming and looking at 1440 (monitor I will choose later just so much to choose for a system build these days).
I was thinking of 2700x but after some reading (lots) it seems to shave a few $$ a 2600x should be almost just as good (I do not plan on heavy OC just slightly). Also the SSD around 500gb (will add like a larger SSD or HD or Mw in the future). Just a rough build so far but in no rush to grab the parts now (probably with tax returns). For the PSU looking about 700/750 (gives me some room for additions/future upgrades).
So just wanting some input/advice possibly so I thank you all in advance.
