Thinking of having this as my first build!

Looking to play games at 1080P, a stable 60fps, at amy settings, but high-ultra would of course be preferable. A budget of around $1000, anything I should change? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JGkzTB

Looks great. Just so you know, the 1660ti should destroy games at 1080p. You should have absolutely no trouble achieving over 60FPS with most titles on high settings.

the question is gtx 1660 ti vs gtx 1070, i'm personally unsure which one to get

depends on if you want the larger vram and frame buffer or the better driver support

how much would Vram limit you

probably not a lot since the 1660ti comes with gddr6 which is faster than the 1070

Looks Good

this case could should provide better airflow and is about $30 cheaper

you could put the money towards a monitor with a higher refresh rate as that gpu should get you more than 60fps in most games

the only con with getting that case is that you lose out the option of having water cooling at a later date, but other then that i'm told it's a solid budget option, having a higher refresh rate will definitely help with the gtx 1660 ti

true but the speed for an M.2 is not needed for gaming, so the cheaper SSD can still be considered

it's just an ease of life thing for not needing that many cables

oh i didn't know that existed, i though it was either just a typical wired SSD and M.2 drives
