Im well aware of Intel vs Amd ram speed importance i was just pointing out that 3600mhz is nice but a ram kit with lower speed but faster timings will make a difference as i showed. Im not an elitest or anything just mostly wanted to point out that speed isnt a linear thing and there are other variables to the original commenter

not that good of a deal unless you can tighten timings. its gonna preform about the same as 3200mhz cl16 for $20 more

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnRVEgCZJ7c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr8vH-MrzGg

none of these even do cl19 for the 3600mhz so its still not even as bad as it could be for some games

For performance it really depends on the title. AC Odyssey, witcher 3, Farcry 5 etc are more demanding then normal games however titles like battlefield should run no more problem max settings and around 90 fps which is great especially if your monitor is a 144hz panel

Made a lot of changes that overall is going to give you a better experience for a bit cheaper

Better gpu to utilize that monitor, newer and better performing motherboard, dropped your ssd and hdd for just 1 faster ssd so if you need more storage adding a hdd is a simple task, more ram which is going to be useful for streaming, and better psu with both a higher rating and more power and overall better quality, lastly swapped to the p400 as it tends to be thermally better then the p300 due to a bit more ventilation

What do you plan to use the build for, whats the budget, and what resolution monitor will you be using. Right away though the 1080 is outdated and pretty overpriced and the 8 core could be wasted.

I would try and get dual channel ram and if you plan on selling your older parts upgrading to faster ram. Ryzen loves fast ram like 3000mhz and dual channel is just a boost in performance.

I'd reccomend changing ram to Gskill Trident z rgb ram. unless things have changed corsair use their own software and wont be sync with your mobo or you could swap to the non pro corsair vegence some older threads show these syncing with asus but not the Pro's. However they might not look as good as you want them https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/RBs8TW/corsair-vengeance-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3200-memory-cmr16gx4m2c3200c16

It's best to make a list closer to black friday because prices are subject to change however there are some slight problems with build the way it is. Id recommend dropping down to 3200mhz ram, 3600 is going to be hard to push without loosening some timings especially with all 4 dimm slots being taken up. Additionally you might want to change the ssd as for $50 less you can get double the storage and still have an nvme drive such as the Crucial P1 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pxKcCJ/crucial-p1-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-ct1000p1ssd8

For streaming you're going to want extra cores and threads so the 2700 is a no brainer. swapped ssd and hdd for just a 1tb ssd which is just nicer for keeping things in 1 storage and then adding hdds if you need them. Changed psu as 750w is overkill and the gq line is a bit weaker the the focus plus. Also swapped case to what looks like the h500 you chose but more airflow focused but if you like the h500 you can swap it back.

Also for the secondary pc id look to sell it if you don't have plans for it. Something like $300 usd seems fair assuming you keep it in decent shape and then upgrading the 2060 with the money you get

If you drop the cooler, get a cheaper yet still reliable ssd, cheaper and nicer psu you can upgrade to a 2070 which is going to net you a lot more fps upfront then a cpu that is already clocked higher then a normal 2600

if youre using a 1080p 60hz monitor and maybe turn some settings down or use competitive settings you'll do fine. You said by endgame your fps drops a lot so that could be the cause of some problems as fortnite just isn't good in general when it comes to endgames. I'd just say use the 1060 6gb and if u think it's doing good for you use it if not upgrade it when you can

For gaming the 8700k will perform the same as the 9700k and save you $50 which you can use for fans or maybe a 2tb hdd as the 500gb ssd might fill up kinda fast.

https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3421-intel-i7-9700k-review-benchmark-vs-8700k-and-more This shows that for the most part their is only a 1-5% fps difference and at this point were talking past 144 fps where its not noticeable in real world performance

Because you want to play triple a games i kept the 2700x as newer games tend to be able to use more cores/ threads but i dropped the cooler as 120mm aios aren't very worth it and most likely wont do well in ocing that 2700x

Dropping the cooler and changing psu to a higher quality unit allowed me squeeze in a 2060 which is better then the 1660 ti.

Also dropped the rgb fan however if you wanted to you could add it back but this case really only needs an extra 1 for exhaust before seeing diminishing returns

Only thing i would recommend is dropping to a 2600. Fortnite is like other games like csgo where extra cores and threads aren't really utilized. However if u do want to do something like streaming or editing the 2700 will give better performance for that. Also if you drop to a 2600 i was able to fit a faster 500gb ssd and you could use some of the money still saved and pick up some decent 140mm fans for intake

can you explain to me what "cpu power" is? because to just about any other person who knows computers would say cpu power would be the strength of the cpu so when i present benchmarks that show the 2200g is faster im not sure what you mean by cpu power, especially since you can choose if you want to oc just the cpu and not the apu included as that is its separate thing

Where are you finding that the g5400 is faster? also the g5400 has integrated graphics also so not sure what you mean if u think the 2200g is weaker because its integrated graphics aren't as bad?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbxPErctir4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18kt0jxz5Tg

both videos and any other benchmark will show the 2200g is faster or just as fast as the g5400 along with the fact you can overclock the 2200g for essentially free performance also not to mention if you ever plan on playing games or editing and can use more cores/ threads a 1600 is $40 cheaper then a i5 9400f which is still on 6 threads

Even with gaming and streaming 64gb of ram is overkill so i downgraded to 32gb that also has rgb which will look nicer then the aegis but you can change if you dont like them.

Changed Mobo to a higher quality board which will be better for overclocks.

Swapped over to a 1tb ssd as wd blue is reliable and if you do then need mass storage adding hdds is easy.

Most importantly changed rx 580s to 2070 as now sli and crossfire should be avoided and the 2070 will be miles faster then 580s.

Changed case to nicer looking one and with a window so you can see the rgb fans however it does sacrifice a bit on airflow but shouldnt cause much of a problem.

Changed psu to a better quality and less wattage as now we have 1 less gpu to power and it doesnt have ugly red pcie connectors.

For gaming the 8700k will do just fine and still do fine in a few years as up until very recently 4 cores have become not the greatest value/ performer so 6c/12t should definitely do fine for a while.

Also changed cooler to an rgb 240mm aio which will cool A LOT better then the one you chose

Lastly changed the motherboard as for z390, asus should be pretty excluded as options. the gaming 6 or other msi/gigabyte boards will perform the same or better for less

That psu looks a kinda weak but should do fine for the 760 but i would look to replace it sooner rather then later. Other then that skyrim even with some mods isn't the most demanding however careful on using mods with better textures as the 760 only has 2gb of vram and might cause stutter

What will you use the pc for? 9700k might be overkill for your needs however using that stock intel cooler be a bad idea for most cpus in your range

The 1080 is a good card but that cooler is gonna be garbage and will make the gpu loud to maintain cool. If you are ok buying used which is close to what refurb is https://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-1080-SC-GAMING-ACX-3-0-8GB-GDDR5X-GPU-Graphics-Card/223488324881?epid=26021689585&hash=item3408f13511%3Ag%3AoBEAAOSwj4Vct5i5&LH_BIN=1 this would be better as it would stay much quieter and cooler and a bit cheaper

Changed ram to a faster speed as its reccomended to get 3kmhz ram at least on ryzen if you have the money which a $1k budget falls in line with with this reasoning. changed psu to an even better unit with full modularity and 80+ gold rating.

changed case to be a bit cheaper and provide good airflow but still be red and black as previous one as ive seen reviews that state intake air is poor with that front glass panel.

also changed to 2600 as the extra frequency isn't going to play much of a difference in 1440p gaming. the only real way to make a noticeable performance boost is switching a better card like the 2070 however thats a big price difference and doesnt fit very close within the budget and the 2060 still should do fine maxing games out in 1440p with little ease

Becuase you have the aourus master id imagine you would want to oc the 9900k so getting a 360mm aio is advised as it gets very hot and in combination with a 2080ti the extra fan mounts and cooling options will be nice
