my only question really is if the monitor is good, and/or if the SSD would be good as a main drive

Superb 1080p display: Higher refresh rate 144hz checked. It's a FreeSync panel and is GSYNC compatible with Nvidias newer driver patch (well-suited for the RTX 2060 for adaptive frame sync). VA-panel is almost as good as IPS, beats TN's poorer viewing angle concerns + lesser colour depth. Other features: Anti flicker, higher and truer colour palette for improved visual quality and less of the grey haze (85% NTSC + improved sRGB), curved panel, 1.2 displayport, 1.4 HDMI and height, swivel and tilt adjustable for a more personalised experience. In other words, VERY NICE!

Super fast NVME SSDs may not be necessary for your purpose of use but for $110 (almost 50/60 buck cheaper since 60-90 days go), this ones hard to resist: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9nhKHx/intel-660p-series-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-ssdpeknw010t8x1 It may not look pretty but its pretty damn fast!!

i would go with that but using an M.2 slot on my motherboard locks 2 of the Sata ports, and since i don't need the speeds for gaming, i'll just stick to a Sata SSD, i can always upgrade later if i need it

LIVE_AMMO 1 point 1 month ago

SATA disabling is normal on all consumer platforms with M.2 SSDs. This should only be a concern if you plan on using more than 5 SATA devices with the same motherboard. You have 6 SATA ports in total, 2 disabled to activate the NVME SSD, which leaves you 4 additional ports for any additional storage devices.

true but i might as well have the option for later,

YoungTechnician 1 point 1 month ago

Looks good. The monitor looks good. This build looks pretty good. There are some things that could be changed but it isn't needed. It would cost you an extra $100 for these options. Ask if you want the options.

i mean why not, just say

my bet is it's ganna be adding liquid cooling

YoungTechnician 1 point 1 month ago

I'd keep the air cooling, but add some case fans for the top part of the case. (3 fans)

FancySnancy submitter 1 point 1 month ago

i'm planning on doing that later when i want to overclock my PC
