Hello all!

I thought I would get some inputs on a new system I want to build as the AMD processors and GPU are out now.

Budget Range: around $1200 (can go higher if it’s worth it)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming 3D Modeling Adobe Design

Are you buying a monitor: No Already have a Samsung 49” CHG90 Gaming monitor

Location: Dallas, TX

Parts Preferences: AMD as the monitor has FreeSync built in

Overclocking: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 3840x1080

Additional Comments: Planning to play PC games such as CS:GO, Fortnite, Apex Legends and would like to get up to 144 FPS.

Also I do a lot of work in Fusion 360, Adobe Illustrator and 3D printing applications such as Simplify 3D and would like a build that could handle the work.

Lucky for you, there is a Microcenter in Dallas! That's where the CPU/mobo comes in play.

And for the AMD, all there is out for the 5700 and 5700XT are blowers, so the 2060 Super is a possible placeholder depending on how soon this is needed.

The Radeon RX 5700 XT compares to the RTX 2070 Super while costing less. The custom cooler cards come out in mid-August if you like open air cooler on the card instead of the blower design. Although AMD invested a lot of time and effort into improving the Radeon RX 5700 series reference coolers, they aren't quiet, but they aren't loud either. The blower could be useful though, as blower-style coolers expel hot air out of the rear of your system, while dual-axial fans dump it back into your PC, requiring your PC to have more adequate air flow from multiple case fans.

The K500 case has excellent looks and great airflow due to the mesh front, tempered glass and two RGB fans in the front.

Nice build, but I strongly disagree about that case having good airflow. I just used one in a build this month and I was beyond disappointed with it. The entire construction is very cheap and that front mesh-like material is actually a solid aluminum sheet with tiny holes that doesn't allow for as much intake as it appears. Oh, and there's no dust filter behind it or any other additional cutouts for intake. The case looks nice and that's about all it really has going for it. There are much better cases for the money.

Edit: My full review of the case can be found on its product page. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xbbwrH/cooler-master-masterbox-k500-phantom-gaming-edition-rgb-atx-mid-tower-case-mcb-k500d-kgnn-asr

I'll be recommending the MasterBox NR600 instead then, the reviews look good for it.
