I have a 1500 ish budget. Not counting the monitor, which is included in this price list. Looking to replace a 6 year old build I currently have. I have mouse and keyboard already and I am planning on reusing my HAF 932 full case. Don't need OS. No plans to stream.


I don't play anything too crazy, but I'd like to start playing things in 1440 with this set up. Overwatch, Fortnite, Apex (the game that made me realize it was time to upgrade).

Basically just looking to get the best performance for my budget, I don't care about RGB or anything, just that things will work well. If there's a better brand/part for something I chose, let me know! All suggestions welcome. Thank you.

Do you plan on streaming or just gaming?

Just gaming.

Well, for pure gaming, this would be optimal

The 2070 might be a little bit overkill for 60 FPS 1440. A 2060 should be able to handle that just fine, or even a Vega 56 or 64

Never mind, thought it said 60fps somewhere.
