Gaming build advice

I am looking to build a new gaming PC which i haven't done for a long time and a lot of new hardware has come out since.

What are peoples view on the below and whether they can suggest alternatives or replacements, budget is around the £1500 mark

Thanks

Your parts list is set to private. You need to set it to public so others can view it. btw what is your resolution?
 
Hopefully should be visible now
Looks good other than you don't want a 120mm AIO for that cpu. Look at a 240 AIO or a dual tower cpu cooler such as this one. Just make sure it clears that RAM.

Save some money on the board.

Welcome to the forum :)

suggest alternatives or replacements

A lot depends on how you will use the PC, and what performance you require. EG you didn't answer Why_Me's Q re resolution—big difference in parts needed for 4K compared with 1080p.

Also, what kind of games—high action or walking simulators?
Any FPS expectations, what Hz for monitor?

budget is around the £1500 mark

Does that include or exclude peripherals like monitor, backup drive, KB&M etc?

I hadnt thought about 4k/1080 in all fairness, assuming 4k is better i would prefer to aim for that to make the PC a little more future proof.

That does include peripherals like monitor etc.

as to usage it would be a mix of all sorts action/rpgs etc etc i'm aiming for around 165hz for monitor and have no FPS expectations its for casual gaming but would want to be able to run games pretty well.

I would prefer liquid cooling over air cooling, if the 120mm is not enough is there an alternative other than the double stack you can recommend?

and lastly, is there any wiggle room on the CPU or GPU for a few more ££ to get a leap in performance or is it just about max for the budget?

Thanks all

Thanks for suggestions is there a liquid cooled option you'd recommend? i used to have heat issues with air cooled and since i went liquid never been a problem so want to stick with that.

Thanks for the MOBO suggestion ill change it out
