This build is pretty good. Since there was still budget left, I switched out some items for faster or more effficient versions.

Ssd: large storage space, this model is know to match and sometimes beat the Samsung 970 evo in read/write speeds. It will be significantly faster than a standard Sata ssd.

HDD: the black series is regarded as the “best” from WD. More reliable and should last longer.

PSU: platinum rated energy efficiency. Seasonic is known to make the highest quality psu.

If you are thinking of doing any overclocking, I’d recommend switching the mobo out for a x470 board and getting a third party cooler instead of the stock.

If you really feel like maxing out your budget, you could likely squeeze a 2080ti in there. Not that the 2080 isn’t a beast card though. Also depends what resolution you want to play at. If you’re doing 1080p, a 2080ti (even a 2080 for that matter) would be a complete waste.

Hi, i will have two monitors one is for haracore gaming at 240hz (1080), and the other for more sotry based games at 4k. Also i will porbably buy an vr in the future. my friend sent this https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8yvbBb (his build) but i don't know

For 1080p alone, a 1660 or 2060 would be more than enough. However, since you plan on doing 4K and vr, and since the budget permits, I would say go for the 2080ti if you’ve already set the money aside for this build.

Also, depending on when you plan to actually purchase the parts and do the build, it may be worth waiting for the newest amd processors to come out.

Slightly trimmed down build to fit a 2080ti into the budget.
