Ok so after several messages from members on here, this is what I have come down to. If there is anything that needs changing (for the better) then please let me know.

Hi Mate just a couple notes

I would rather have the TUF X570 motherboard for that CPU and I'd also be getting my mouse/keyboard/etc elsewhere.

Spending around 2K though I'd be aiming for a 1440p 144Hz build as opposed to a 1080p build but hey that's just me

The motherboard would definitely benefit from being upgraded to a Tuf X570, and you can open up your case choices by taking a H100i Elite capellix (still very, very suitable choice cooler for the CPU).

Was there a reason for the HDD drive? And I am a bit surprised youve taken a 1080p card, as mentioned, your budget would appear to accommodate a 1440p (possibly monitor as well, at very least, most of the cost of one)

H100i Elite is in a weird place for me the H115i Elite Capellix is better and only £8 more, it's a no brainer in my opinion. Unless you really need that £8

Its not about the £8, its about the radiator size.

Yeah of course size can be an issue but the suggested case should fit it
I hear yer, but I think that case is ugly, no idea how well it performs though.
I do know that you get twice as many options with a 240 radiator compared to a 280,

I agree haha not a fan of the case either. I usually recommend the 5000D or the 5000X, they're a bit roomier and allow you to mount the H115i on the roof which I think is best

The HDD drive was sugested from a previous reply to the original post,regarding the case what would be a better option? Also could someone post a link to the rest of the items listed such as 1440p, H115i elite and such (there seems to be a bedate on which is the better option from sveral of you).
Cheers.

Something like this would be more suited to that budget, you can swap out the 6700XT for the 3060Ti or the 3070 if you'd prefer Nvidia. Both cards offer 1440p performance
