I'm going to buy my first gaming pc in about a month and I already made a part list but I'm not sure if I chose some wrong part or if some part won't work well together.

part list:

Ryzen 2700x

Gigabyte RTX 2070 8G

X570 AORUS ELITE

corsair DDR4 2x 8GB 3000

Samsung 860 QVO 1TB SSD

corsair RM750x PSU

Cooler master masterbox MB520

.

monitor: AOC C24G1

keyboard: Logitech G213

any advice is appreciated.

Not much point going for X570 board if your not going for Ryzen 3000 series CPU and faster memory, what is your budget? Go for a RTX 2070 Super they should be the same price as the none super card.

Not sure where your based using Euro but with the strength of the Euro to the dollar should be good little system. Pound is so weak it's a joke - not sure if you'll actually gain ordering from UK..

If your going x570 then 3600hz ram. Google for Micron E or Samsung B-Die 3200/3600 at the lowest price you can find. If it's 3200hz then overclock it.

Also you'd want 3700x over 2700x. Even ryzen 6 core 3600x is faster . I have ryzen 2700 Non X and will be swapping to Ryzen 3600.

Also push RTX 2070 Super ! Or 2060 Super which is cheaper then standard 2070 and close on GPU power.

Believe Gigabytes RMA EU side is just as Good as UK. Not sure which sites their reps are on but @GIGA-Man can always lend a hand .

Push the Gaming OC version for 4 years warranty .

Personally, 570 XT Gigabyte Gaming OC is worth a look with prices and paired with a cheaper Freesync monitor does well

Im also sure in EU , you can get 30 euros f steam review voucher for mobo review like UK and 30 euro voucher for GPU review too !


Looking Gigabyte 5700 XT Gaming OC is cheaper EU side

Thank you for all this information!
I live in the Netherlands and I'm getting the part from webshop here, idk if the prices here are high or low but I'm guessing it's allright.
I think if I get a cheaper motherboard and put the money somewhere else in the build it'll be more useful. But I'm only a mere beginner and you seem to know a lot more about this than me.
My budget is around €1400, unless it's way more useful to wait for a bigger budget I'd like to buy a pc for that price.
I'm a bit confused on the graphics card part because there are a lot of brands and some with 3 fan and some with 2 and I just don't know which one will fit my budget and build.
Thanks again and I hope you can help me further.

Would actually have OcUK's "parent" company on other side of border in Germany.

Especially in case of X570 almost all motherboards have good CPU VRM, so basic model would be enough for normal PC.
Also better B450 boards can give lots of bang per buck.
Luxury priced mobo only lowers performance/endurance of PC, if it means cutting in other components.

Especially if you want PC to be good for gaming for next five years, then without upgrades in that time would consider Ryzen 3700X as proper level.
Next-gen consoles will have Zen2 based 8 core and likely with SMT for same 16 threads.
So game development should start advancing fast, after Intel killed advance for long time.

Again GPU requirements aren't that high for low 1920x1080 resolution and AMD's Navi cards would give excellent bang per buck.


Samsung 860 QVO 1TB SSD
That Samsung isn't cheap enough for using pretty much analog QLC flash, which needs to differentiate between 16 different charge levels.
That means it doesn't have really any tolerance for charge leakage/interference.

TLC ("only" 8 charge levels) based Crucial MX500 and WD Blue 3D are more sensible choises in that price level.
Also Kingston has recently released A2000 NVMe for price of these SATA drives, making it bang per buck choise.
Gaming doesn't really benefit from higher speeds of NVMe over SATA:

But if it costs the same might as well take NVMe.
