I was going to get the I5 8400 but it was $35 more expensive and I also wanted to play around with overclocking in the future. I did research and saw that when overclocked the R5 2600 is on par (if not better) than the i5 8400 in most titles.

As for the g-sync, I would have liked a monitor that had it but they are just not in my budget. Maybe one day when I have the funds i will really get to build my dream I7, RTX, Custom Water Loop, Itx build(love the small form factor pc's).

That is impressive. Do you keep your I5-8600k overclocked constantly? If so what cooler do you use? Withing the next few months I want to upgrade from my stock cooler so that i can overclock the 2600 and I am doing research on what the best overclock to have, what are the safe temperatures for my cpu, and is it okay to have the overclock on 24/7, and what would be a good cooler for me?

This helps allot thanks. Sounds like you have yourself a golden chip there(knock on wood). Okay so i guess ill make my decision about the cooler once i build the pc and play around with and see how my cop acts. I just watched some videos on youtube and people seem to be getting the r5 2600 up to a 4.2ghz overcolck fairly easily with a decent air cooler.

Well this all sound fun to me i can't wait to get in there an play around thanks for the help i appreciate it.
