I'm building my first PC and wanted to get some feedback on the parts I've selected; I've done as much research as I can and wanted to know if I overlooked anything. Thanks in advance! (I'm pretty sure everything is compatible and that I will get the performance that the average 1080p 60fps gamer wants)


  • Processor: Intel Core i7-10700KF, 8 Cores & 16 Threads Unlocked Desktop Processor without Processor Graphics
  • Motherboard: GIGABYTE B560M DS3H LGA 1200/ Intel/ B560/ Micro-ATX/Dual M.2/ PCIe 4.0/ USB 3.2 Gen1/ GbE LAN/Motherboard
  • CPU Cooler:Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition CPU Air Coolor, Silencio FP120 Fan, 4 CDC 2.0 Heatpipes, Anodized Gun-Metal Black, Brushed Nickel Fins
  • Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO Ultra Gaming, 6GB GDDR6, Dual Fans
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro, 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3600MHz CL18 Desktop Memory
  • SSD: Inland Platinum 1TB SSD NVMe PCIe Gen 3.0x4 M.2 2280 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive, High Performance R/W up to 3,400/1,900 MB/s
  • Power Supply: Corsair RM 850 Series, 80+ Gold Certified 850W Fully Modular Power Supply
  • Case: Fractal Design Meshify C - Compact Computer Case - High Performance Airflow/Cooling - 2X Fans Included - PSU Shroud - Modular Interior - Water-Cooling Ready - USB3.0 - Tempered Glass Light


That is everything aside from the monitor. The total comes out to $1,600 which I was expecting given the GPU shortage.

Again, I am open to critiques and suggestions of any kind. Just want to make sure I do this right the first time!

Given the GPU shortage I'd be hesitant to go for a 2060.

You'd be better off spending a little more on a 3060/3060TI.

Also I think your PSU is overkill - you'd be better getting a 650/750 depending on the price difference.

I would definitely say a 650 watt psu rated 80+ gold would be plenty for you build.
I also would recommend trying to find a 30 series card and entering the newegg shuffle since a lot of people I know have had great success with it.
Cant go wrong with an AIO since intel stock coolers aren't anything to brag about.
cheers.

I'd probably get a better B560 motherboard. No need for Z590 with a locked CPU, but I wouldn't totally cheap out on a B560 mobo.

I'd change the SSD as well probably.

Even 650W is more than adequate for a locked CPU and RTX 2060. Get the 850W if you want it though I suppose.

Cooler is fine, but I'd get something different.. probably something from Be Quiet!
