Hello. I've been using the same pile of hardware for a good amount of years now. Since I've managed, to get pretty good price for my old one, as well as having saved up quite a lot money, I've decided, to spend max. 1900$. This PC will mostly be used for gaming.

This is what i have built so far, but i'll gladly hear suggestions, if some of it doesn't seem right or unnecessary to the experienced eye.

Nice build but weak psu. Try to find a Tier 2 psu like Corsair HX, TX or VX series. Seasonic and XFX are always great options.

PS. Corsair CX 600M is fine for budget-oriented gaming builds.

If you really want to liquid cooling your cpu than Cooler Master Seidon 240 is a good option.

However Cooler Master's Hyper 212 EVO is still the best option for an entry-level cooling system.

Yeah, pretty much just this. I like everything except your psu. I put that one down as a possible part for my prospective build from a little while ago and many users argued against and one pointed me towards this one:

Perfect so far. Other than that, I always see people recommend seasonic.
