Also I already have a monitor which is the ASUS VG248QE - https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/VG248QE/

Get a SSD, it's 2019 and they are dirt cheap. For the cpu cooler, it's not really worth it to get a 120mm aio. You are better off with a decent air cooler, cm 212 Evo for cheap or noctua nh-d15 if you want something with insane cooling.

Nice. That 970 Evo is a beast and I just built a new computer yesterday with the nh-d15. It keeps my 3700X at <60 degrees while turbo to 4.3GHz. It's actually as good if not better than most/all the 240mm AIOs on the market(coming from someone who used a Corsair H100i V2 for 3 years on his 6700K).

For your PSU, @eesti req'd a seasonic 550W that is way cheaper. If power efficiency isn't an issue(aka you aren't paying the electricity bill), you can get that one. But usually the peak efficiency for PSUs is ~50% load, so a ~800W PSU is the most efficient for your system. The 850W you picked should be just fine if efficiency is a concern.

For your storage, you should also grab a 1 or 2TB HDD/cheap SSD for shadowplay or recording. If money is an issue, you can downgrade it to a 500GB 970 Evo, they are only around 90 bucks on amazon.

[STAFF REMOVED]

For the mouse, take a look at the Glorious model o and o-. I recently got them after my G703 started double clicking. The mouse is super light(o- is the 3rd lightest in the world), has a great sensor, and it's ambidextrous. It shows up as $100 on pcpartpicker but it's 49.99 if you go on their website.

Overall I do feel like you are spend a bit of money on aesthetics that you could be using to upgrade your GPU or CPU. But if the looks are important to you, this is a well balanced build with quality parts in every category.

I'm not sure what you're sacrificing to get a 2080 ti in this budget is made up for. Especially if the system will be used for things other than gaming.

Please tell me where OP states anything. They didn't state anything having to do with gaming or any other type of use, even if it's something else I doubt it can fully utilize 8 cores or even 12.

IMO, you could spend your money a lot better. Also, you don't have an SSD. You're absolutely going to want an SSD even if it's a small one just for windows, but with this budget you should grab a 1tb nvme m.2 for windows and whatever else you'll be installing, plus a 2tb+ HDD if you want.

Here's what I got for you.

I've stayed with the same case even though it seems expensive for what it is.

Added an SSD, massive CPU/mobo upgrade, nice GPU upgrade, still room left for all of the custom parts you have listed + OS. If you have any questions, feel free to reply.

Thank you very much but are there any black w/ rgb (preferably asus) motherboards that work with the ryzen 7 3700x? The only ones I can find are the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero ($365), Asus ROG Strix X570-E ($325), Asus ROG Strix X570-F ($280)

You could find a B450 board and update it's bios to be compatible with the 3700x, because there will probably be more available in that socket. That said, the X570F seems a decent option if you really need ROG Strix.
