Need some opinions. This is my first ever pc build. My price range is about 850. Thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Main use will be for gaming. Here it is https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wJGfQZ
-Newer cpu for a few more $
-Dropped the cooler
-Dropped the wired lan card. this isnt needed as the motherboard already has one. maybe you meant to put a wireless network card?

I didnt even notice that. thank you for pointing it out
if you can swing it, i would try to get a monitor thats 144hz. im sure you will play some games that wont need that much horsepower and your system would be creating performance you would never see because the monitor wouldnt be able to display it to you. this all depends on what you plan to play though.
Mostly league, csgo. Will definitely start looking to expand to other games though. I currently play on my macbook so what games that are available to play are limited.
then i would get a higher refresh monitor. this system will be able to push out plenty of frames on those games that that monitor wont show you. wasted performance.
Sounds good. I will shop around for some 144hz right now
I'd go for the 2600 right now bc it's gonna be better than ur 1500 and it's on sale for cheaper than it right now, only like $150
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VYCyYT with the intention of adding a hdd later. Got in a 144hz monitor and 1660 ti. U may want to upgrade to 2600 but 1600 is great value & u can overclock it
