Looking to finally put my old machine to pasture and have started to formulate the below build. I'm looking for insight/opinions on a few things but first my use case.
Computer Gaming @ 1440p 144hz, with some OC capability, Futurproofing and infrequent media work. Nice to Haves are Corsair/Gigabyte branding and a more quiet build. Price point isn't a giant concern if the value is there I'll just save more and wait longer to build. Overall Budget though I want to stay under 2k. Also I already own the 2080 Aorus so don't count that in the budget.
MoBo: I want to stick with Gigabyte Aorus Z390 but I'm struggling justify if the "master" is worth it
Ram: I'm price shopping between 3k-3200 Ram if anyone has any secrets for Ram/Speed/Branding/Performance let me know its just ram
Storage: I like the m.2 as its cleaner on the build but the pricepoint/performance is hard to justify for a gaming machine. is the MX500 vs 970 evo worth noting for gaming? I like the cost savings
Video Card: I've already bought this as it replaced my old card
Case: Its the Evolv x or the Lian LI 011 and the 011 just looks like more fans and less performance.
Fans: Recommendations for this Evolv x case? It already comes with fans and then the corsair cooler I think I should be set
PSU: I would like to have a corsair or a be quiet PSU but it just can't justify the price again for brand loyalty is it really noticeably quieter with the be quiet brand?
