Velox is an expensive case for someone on a budget.   Try Lumos and some cpu and component alterations and you can hit that budget using a stronger RTX 2060 Super video card.   You can add more RAM later if needed, but 16 GB does the job for gaming.

Lumos Config # 2646673. $2675 minus DS Sale $200 off = $2475 and Free Shipping.

+1 on all counts

The RTX 2060 SUPER is THE card for Ultra at 1080p.

Thanks guys for the information! It helped lots. I see you added the i7 instead of the i9. Do you think the i9 is better? its only like 100$ more than the one you selected. Thanks again!

For gaming the two processors are considered neck & neck....so the extra money doesn’t necessarily equate to better gaming performance.   The i7-9700K is known as the easier Overclocker of the two...i9-9900K runs a bit warmer....choose what you feel most confidant about.

Thanks so much for your feed back! I'll do some research about the different processors.

For gaming this config is fine. But surely you have to upgrade it in the next couple of years. Do some more research on other processors as well. Hope this helps you!
