aye I've already got a 250gb SSD for a boot drive and other things

 

and between the 2 i would need to research them but ive heard white good things about the 2060 and the 1660ti but mostly the 2060

Tbh I would save up for/ go with the 2060 as it’s more “future proofed”. Are you building it yourself or getting a prebuilt?

Ok I will point out some things about your list

CPU: 600k is an old gen Intel, either get an Intel Core i5-9600K (£230) or an AMD Ryzen 7 2700 (£207)

Motherboard: Choose motherboard based on the above CPUs, Intel = Z390 Socket 1151, AMD = AM4

RAM: If you can get 16GB of RAM, 8GB is barely enough these days

GPU: You have a few choices depending on your budget, RTX 2060 is slightly better than the 1660 TI, but at greater expense. You could also consider the Radeon RX Vega 56

I've taken this all into consideration and have made a new list on the thread as you can see above but @zico._that motherboard is a B450 i want a z type motherboard as they support overclocking better *apparently*

so if @Scott McTavishand @zico._would look at the original thread and check the new list feedback on that would be much appreciated also :)

Good build parts, that 9600k is cheap 😀

I would buy im but in waiting for the new Ryzens

Shortened for ease

Can i ask why you are getting a "performance" Hard disk - just put "good" games on a SSD and save yourself £50 and just get this link It works fine as a HDD as you would expect.

No need for a £67 cpu cooler. In my experience you can get one that does the same thing with same RPM for about £30-£40
For that price you can get a cheap water cooler https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Hydro-Radiator-Liquid-Cooler/dp/B07B68T46Q/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=CPU+cooler&qid=1557245488&s=gateway&sr=8-4

it's cheap for a reason ;) 

quality will never be as good as an expensive water cooler

Water cooling is overhyped
