3071025 Current pending config

I'm new to PC gaming, so explain anything like I'm 5 and opinions are more than welcome.

Budget: $2000-$2500, but I am a little flexible if necessary

Expectations:
Play most games without major issues or loss of frame-rate.

Usage:
I play console games as well, but I would imagine this will become my primary gaming system for a wide spectrum of games and large library.

Special Needs:
I'm currently in a situation where I can only connect via wifi, and while that may change in the future having the flexibility while also having a reliable connection is important to me.

This rig is very powerful as is for a budget build.

-Built around the premium Maximus Hero motherboard which will give you the very best in Wi-Fi response offered ATM.

-The 9700K is the price/performance CPU at the top right now for gaming.

-The DS RAM has never failed me in 3 builds, one of which I used 24/7 for almost 8 years.

-The 850W PSU will give you plenty of overhead to add many upgrades in the future.

-The newly offered Seagate Firecuda NVMe gives up virtually nothing to Samsung, but is a might less expensive. You definitely want that speed for your primary drive.

-The Nvidia RTX 2070 SUPER is a guess at what you need for gaming, as you didn't tell us what your monitor resolution will be. It is the price/performance champ for 1440p. It will over perform at 1080p, and you could do great with an RTX 2060 SUPER at that res. That card would save you ~$150.

-The DUAL FAN all-in-one CPU cooler is a must have. Makes the free Stage One overclock an easy pick.

-Don't recommend overclocking a video card.

The one single thing I would upgrade on this build would be to swap out a 1TB Samsung EVO SSD with the 2TB HHD for secondary storage.

If you don't need a 2070 SUPER, let us know, ASAP. There are some nice options available within budget if you can save on that.

Questions are welcome.
