Use TrackIR :emoji12:
yes, for racing sims and trucking games like ETS2/ATS this is a great solution.

so yea, surround gaming is cool, but after 10 years using it, get your self a big screen and TrackIR like Max suggested, its even gonna be cheaper.
Alright :D It's all future plans anyway.

What's a good MB that supports upgrades? Need to ponder if I stick with the B450 or up it :)

Well we're sticking with the 450 then. Lowest priced X570s are 170€ and I bet those aren't really worth it.

Will drop another 200 if I upgrade later in life, and buy a new motherboard.

yea, i think its not worth it to buy X570 now in your case. Its also unclear what B550 motherboards will be like and prices. also you can still upgrade your CPU to a better one later down the line that is Zen 2 and they go up to 16 cores 32threads... so that's plenty.

Soooooo I need to get my hands on a helmet as well (bummer) so I kinda sorta need to adjust this up.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 190€
MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX 120€
MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB 380€
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 2x8GB 90€
WD Blue SN550 SSD 500GB NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 3 90€
EVGA BQ 650W 80 Plus Bronze Modular 75€
Fractal Design Focus G Mid Tower 75€ (hopefully it drops to 50 like it did a couple weeks ago lol)
TOTAL 1020€

@CDMC Makes sense. I'll stick with this one. Apart from the wifi it has all I need anyway and as I don't plan to upgrade... I took the H500 case out of the options for now. I've watched a few reviews of the mesh version and its pretty creaky and plasticky it looks like so as you said the FD one was ok I'll take that one unless you say otherwise. PSU I went back to the Bronze as well. Thought about dropping NVMe SSD and going SATA3 but it's totally not worth it for 20€. I'll get another SSD/HDD later on in time and we'll be good.

Talking to a friend. He says he's got some AeroCool case and he's happy with it. Is this any good?

Oh crap I thought I filtered the results to be ATX compatible. Oh well.

Unless I find something case wise that fits and has much better airflow I think I'll stick with the FD or CM ones we said then.

As said I decided to ditch the rest of the cases and after some research and temp studies and whatever I decided I'm paying the extra bit for the H500. The FD one is okay outside but the bay itself has no PSU cover or anything really, it's just open and to me that looks awful. All that + the Disk drive trays I dont need which hurt airflow anyway, just made me decide for the H500. It's 100€ so it's not like those 25€ will take me out of poverty once I pay for all this lol.

About the GPU: There is the following, all DDR6 8GB and stuff:

PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT (https://www.pccomponentes.com/powercolo ... -8gb-gddr6): 1605MHz base clock, 1905MHz Boost clock, 4096x2160 max res. DP + HDMI. 379,90€
PowerColor Red Dragon Radeon RX 5700 XT OC (https://www.pccomponentes.com/powercolo ... -8gb-gddr6): 1650MHz base clock, 1905MHz Boost clock , 4096x2160 max res. DP + HDMI, 399,90€
MSI AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT Mech OC (https://www.pccomponentes.com/msi-amd-r ... -8gb-gddr6): 1670MHz base clock, 1925MHz Boost clock , 7680x4320 max res. DP + HDMI, 389,90€
XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra (https://www.pccomponentes.com/xfx-radeo ... -8gb-gddr6, thicc lol): 1810 MHz base clock, 2025MHz boost clock, 7680 × 4320 max res., DP+HDMI, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio Support, 409,90€

The Standard PowerColor I reckon I can ditch. @CDMC said 3 fans or bigger fans are better so for 10€ more I'd pick the MSI. The Red Dragon version of that one seems overpriced. There's the Red Devil too but that's even more expensive than the XFX so no way. So it leaves it to the MSI or the XFX. What's the real difference? Is the difference realistic or is it just the same stuff with a different cover?

I was literally about to order the build with the H500 and the MSI one but the case and CoolerMaster/EVGA PSUs are out of stock so I'll wait see if they plan to drop a sale till it's all available. I don't think I can wait until June 10th like I planned lol but I'll try.
