Yeah. Need more info to recommend something properly though.

What monitor(s) are you using?
Will you be overclocking?
What will the system be used for exactly?
What's the budget because with the price of the X62 and a PSU that's in stock, you'd be around £1100?

My monitor is a ROG PG278QR and I think I will be overclocking but not too sure yet. The system will be used to play all sorts of games such as call of duty etc. I will also be doing editing in photoshop and some video editing too. I dont have a specific budget but I have all of the items in my amazon basket and it adds up to £920.

Even if you get everything from Amazon, it would still be around £1070 from what I'm seeing?

GTX 1050Ti in a £1000ish system for a 1440p 165Hz monitor is just ridiculous, it's an entry level GPU at this point IMO.

Larger/better SSD, significantly better GPU, and a better PSU. Stock cooler with the R5 2600 will be fine for now, but I'd probably upgrade at some point. Something like this would be good;

Well priced, looks nice, quiet, and will more than do the job cooling an R5 2600. The R5 2600 will perform better in editing/rendering than the i5 and in games, the GPU will make more of a difference than CPU.

If you're comfortable buying used, you can find high end 1070Ti's(like the EVGA FTW and Asus Strix coolers) for ~£280 pretty easily, so that would be a good shout.

is the Ryzen 5 overclockable? I do what to get good performance and I want to be able to take advantage of the 165 hz of m,y monitor and also have good graphics. I mainly play BO3 but I will also be playing other games when I buy some more. Thanks

My plan was to get all of thos parts and then save for a 1070 or something so that I have a PC to play on in the meantime but also so that I can have a better PC in the end. I forgot to mention that I already have the 1050ti and I would be using it temperately while I save for a 1070.

Yes, you can overclock the Ryzen 5 CPU.

If you're comfortable buying a used GPU, you might be able to sell your 1050Ti and get yourself a 1080Ti within budget, which would definitely be beneficial for 1440p 165Hz. I'd want a GTX 1070(Ti) minimum. You don't really need to re-use your 1050Ti, I'd just sell it and put the money towards the better GPU. People are still paying around £100 for used 1050Ti's, but the prices have been dropping lately so you might not even get that much for it.

For used prices;
GTX 1070 = £240ish
GTX 1070Ti = £270ish
GTX 1080 = £300ish
GTX 1080Ti = £450

Otherwise, RTX 2070 launches in 3 days I think, so "new" Pascal cards should see a price drop(hopefully).
