Hi CL,

I have an uncle, in his 50's and outside of work, all he loves to do is play World of Warcraft - aside from web, email etc. I'm jealous of this simple life he has - sigh.
That being said, he lives a few hours away from me and unfortunately i do not have the time to buy, install, configure & manage the process with him - Enter Computer Lounge!

Quickly looking at your pre-built systems, nothing ticks all the boxes so...

Combo Deal:
Combo: Gigabyte Z370 AORUS GAMING 5, Intel Z370, DDR4-4133 Triple M.2, 120dB SNR ALC1220, Fusion RGB LGA1151v2 Gaming Motherboard
Combo: Intel CoffeeLake Core i5 8600K Six Core, 3.6Ghz/4.3Ghz, 9MB LGA1151 Unlocked Processor, No Fan
Combo: Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200 CL16, Ryzen Certified
Samsung 970 EVO 250GB M.2 NVMe SSD (MZ-V7E250BW)
Western Digital Black WD2003FZEX 2TB 64MB Cache SATA3
EVGA GeForce GTX1070Ti SC Gaming 8GB GDDR5 ACX3.0, Black Edition Video Card (08G-P4-5671-KR)
EVGA SuperNova 650 G2 650W 80Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply
Microsoft Windows 10 Home USB Flash Drive 32Bit/64-Bit - Retail RS2 (KW9-00478)
Fractal Design Define R6 Silent Mid Tower Tempered Glass - Blackout

Memory - Im not sold on the ram. I just selected something around 3000. Please do select something more appropriate
CPU Cooler - I can't decide on Air vs Water AIO. He's in his 50's, not PC hardware literate. So i need long-term and bullet-proof (not literally).
Case Fans - SP or not. Needs some thought around positive airflow front to back with the 1070. This rig will sit in the same place for the next 10 years.
Cablemod Extention 8+6 - some color scheme that suits the build

You will be required to complete build, configure, test with the hardware and install the OS.
Shipping would be to the lower north island.

Final thoughts - feel free to add thoughts of your own

Morning Tumeki,

Please have a look over the below quote I have created based on your listed components and it's intended use.

I have gone with air cooling as it doesn't require much maintenance at all and will be a bit more reliable in the long run.

Let me know your thoughts on the quote and all of the above info.

2700x@ 4.2Ghz
16GB AorusRGB@ 3200Mhz
860 Evo 500GB, 4TB HHD & 6TB HDD
GTX 1080ti Strix
S340 Elite Hyperbeast
