    I'm looking to build a new rig as mine is 5 years old. I only need the PC, I have all other things. I currently use 2 GL2250's but I'm considering upgrading my main monitor to a 144hz one in the future. I play a range of games: Total War: Warhammer, Overwatch, Destiny 2, Forza, CSGO, to name a few.

    I haven't been keeping updated with gaming setups, so any advice would be great.

    Is that going to be a separate budget?

    Yes the entirety of my budget is for the new PC. I'll get the Monitor later next year, when I have some spare cash.

    I like this build, only thing I was considering is it worth going for the bundle with the 2700x and the 370x? I'm not sure what performance advantages between the two options.
    Thanks.

    Strix 2700x bundle is a nice deal . I just went for x470 that had WiFi as most now using pcs without having to use long net cables etc .
    2700x is a great chip that should last a bit longer or if you need to do any workloads etc

    I've just completed a build with a very similar budget to you, I decided while spending that amount I may as well pay the extra for the 2700X and went for the bundle. On reflection a board with WiFi might have been worth having, not something I thought about at the time, though not really an issue.
