Hey guys,
Like I said in the title Im looking to custom build a 1500 desktop. The CPUs of Intel look confusing, there are so many, and when we are building the prices are not that which doesn’t help too. Anyone could give me some advice ?

What's it for?
If gaming what monitor are you pairing it with? What resolution and refresh rate? If you're unsure what make and model?
If gaming, what kinds of games?

Edit 2:
I want to use this machine to play games like battlefield V, GTA V with different mods and much more in a monitor with 144hz 1440p. In the future will buy a VR headset to try new games and maybe learnVR development and AI development.
Meanwhile will use it more for gaming ahahah, some coding, movies, and normal stuff.

I will use this monitor and another 27 inch 1080p.
Then I will put some more SSD and HDD drives that I already have.

I just hope the temperatures will be good.

Depends what you'll be using it for :)
So if you could let us know what you'll be using it for we can give give better comments about the build in respect to its intended uses :)

Most people do not need 32GB RAM, but again this depends on usage.

You are right, I updated with what I will be using!

But 32gb of ram is more for future, for me now 16gb was fine, but next year is my last uni year and will start to learn AI and 32gb will be better for it.

Something worth considering is that PCs allow us to work on their machines without voiding the warranty, so you could add more RAM later on if needed. As RAM is quite expensive it may be better to wait until you really need it or can pick some up when/if it gets cheaper.

I have one question, is the Overclocked i7 9700k a waste because of this case? I'm a little bit worried.

Does pc specialist sell's cases thinking about the temperatures or just the highest demand?

Hey guys I’m buying a custom pc here , with NZXT h500, i7 9700k, rtx 2070, maximus hero motherboard and corsair h150i pro( I think this one with 2 fans). Does this NZXT grid + v3 can help the control of all fans? Anyone here used? And do I need to buy more fans to make use of it?
