Welcome to DS.

The configuration gurus will need to know at what resolution you plan to be gaming. There are very different components that either not work or be way overkill depending on the monitor(s) that will be used.
Enjoy. Smile

Well, I hope you're going to be delighted that you don't need to spend all that on a high-performance rig here these days with the discounts they have going on and free shipping. I'll give you all you need, and you can see what you think.

Try this, I'll edit the copy to make it easier to read:

This comes in at $2870 after discount.

#1 gaming processor; very strong mobo with built-in Wi-FI; 32GB of premium RAM which is all you will ever need for gaming; plenty of power supply.

TWO NVMe SSDs for super fast reponse in everything you do. One lean and mean primary drive for OS, apps, and maintenance software that will allow for all those annoying system scans in just seconds. A 1TB for all your games. You could opt for a mechanical HDD for more storage, but I think you might want a SATA SSD later on when you need more. Don't get one now, by the time you need one, it will be faster and cheaper. It's an easy DIY upgrade.

The RTX 2060 SUPER is a great choice for your monitor. The budget allows for more, but in six months, Nvidia will be out with a whole new generation of cards. If we don't overspend now, you will be in great position to consider upgrading your monitor and GPU later. If you don't want to upgrade the monitor, you can stand pat just fine.

The DS all-in-one CPU cooler is all you need. I will never recommend custom liquid cooling as I think of it as a potential accident waiting to happen, and at least a maintenance hassle for very little gain. Not worth the money IMO.

Corsair LL Series case fans for cooling and bling factor in that great showcase chassis. Best part is you can download iCue software from Corsair and control the colors and the fan speed. Internal light strip...free.

I prefer the mild overclock not just because it's free, but this chip and the 9700k are so darn fast already....

Don't overclock the GPU.

You can step up to Win 10 Pro. (I didn't.)

You can pay to extend the warranty. I've had three DS rigs without a single issue.

What do you think?
