Well with some parts, I’m still undecided on my motherboard I was thinking of the b450 tomahawk max but I want upgrade options later on. What do you think of this case

A better upgrade possibility would be the X570 mobo but this is only specific to a certain user-group who may employ a higher core count CPU with the likes of a 16 core 3950X or a 4000-series 12/16 core pacier equivalent. If your workload requirements has zero influence with higher core-count options, the Tomahawk MAX is ample.

what do you think of this case

Excellent case option if you're looking for a minimalist bold compact approach. Surprisingly decent airflow too considering it's a single sided vent for air intake.

Also have a look at the H510 - a revised model hosting a Type-C port on the front panel. This could come handy as type-c standardisation is in full force.


If you haven't purchased the GPU already, i'd add $20 and grab this aftermarket solution from EVGA: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xxrYcf/evga-geforce-rtx-2070-super-8-gb-xc-gaming-video-card-08g-p4-3172-kr (better thermals, less noisier + some marginal factory OC applied). If purchased already - no problem! You're not missing out on much.

Actually I just picked up the h510 today forgot to update my list and the gpu I haven't it not ready yet so I can cancel it. So you think this aftermarket gpu is better than the founder?

Absolutely!!

It is always likely to achieve better performance with respectable aftermarket solutions as the primary purpose behind partner cards is "improvements". What the EVGA card does immensely better is that chunky 3 pcie slot towered heatsink which does a wonderful job with heat dissipation. A cooler card resorts to lesser ramped fan cycles, ultimately lowering acoustic levels for quieter ops.

Hey I forgot to mention I was looking for a new motherboard because the b450 tomahawk max is costing me 141 dollars on amazon because it sold out everywhere
