-Dropped the wired lan card. this isnt needed as the motherboard already has one. maybe you meant to put a wireless network card?

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.

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
