    hi guys im going to get a new build but im not sure of whats around the market and best values.

    this is part of my thought right now ..

    CPU: i7-7700k
    mobo: Asus Strix 270G (mATX)
    GPU: GTX1080/1070 but im not getting the GPU as budget constraint and im only playing LoL FOR NOW. could probably use the CPU graphics
    RAM: ?????
    chassis: Phanteks Evolv mATX
    PSU: ?????
    CPU cooler: ????
    Storage: ???? and how should i go about for my storage? 500GB nvme for windows & applications? or 128gb nvme for windows and SSD for application?

    thats all i can think about for now as for monitor i already have a benq xl2420t which is a discontinued product

    thank you all!!!

    Best value? Take a look at AMD Ryzen series for your CPU.

    I have never used AMD system before and have always been an Intel though. mind telling me some difference between them?

    not if you game the i7 still way better than Ryzen due to higher clocks. I would go with a different motherboard, Fatal1ty Z270 is really good if you want to adventure into overclocking.

    then should i go with different i7 or just i7-7700k. i thought that it might be a little overkill. and any recommendation for PSU? thinking of gtx1070 or so so

    oc ? else not necessary to go with K version, just normal H270 + 7700.
    Ram 16GB at least.
    Cooler prefer to have Nocuta L9x65...
    PSU :Silvestone SST-SX600-G and buy your custom PSU cable from carousell ~~~~
    i7-4770/16GB/512G SSD×2/UP3017/RX480/M950/FILCO 87 BT/MW50/LIAN LI Q18
    Surface Pro 4 i7/16/512

    I'd say go with the i7, can't go wrong with that. And yeah, just get a good overclocking mobo and a capable cooler and you're good to go.

    finally came up with an idea of what i want to build but most likely after 18 June as i will be much more free

    i7-7700k+ROG STRIX Z270G
    Corsair LPX 3000Mhz 16GB
    Samsung 960 Evo 500GB Nvme OR Sandisk Ultra 2 480GB
    Corsair RM850i
    Corsair H80i V2
    Corsair 400C

    1) should i get NVME drive or normal SSD drive? and i don't think window would startup on NVME in a blink of an eye right? normally i would just game on it and very seldom would i move large files around

    2) is it wise of me to get a 850w PSU? at any given time, i would most likely only have one GPU running. if it is too much, any other reliable PSU to recommend?

    3) a fan cooler or a single 120 radiator cooler?

    4) interested in a reference cooler gtx graphic card btw

    1) The Ultra II isn't a particularly fast drive especially once you exhaust the pseudo-SLC cache section. The 960 EVO is a very decent drive for the money and you don't need to waste a 2.5" slot (in some casings, this means you can remove the drive cage for better cooling).

    2) A 620W Seasonic should more than suffice unless you intend to clock the CPU heavily and run a top of the line card like a 1080Ti or similar.

    3) A good air cooler would be as good as a basic single 120mm closed-loop if you don't intend to clock the chip.
