Bout the best you gonna get for 500 us an extra 100 on gfx card would go a long ways for future proofing.

Would agree, though I'd personally sacrifice/skim in a couple other areas and shoot for an r5 3600, D3 isn't very demanding.

Not enough performance jump to justify over 50% price increase IMO.

Could say the same about the dedicated GPU and 16gb ram, even the 500gb NVME, since all we're talking about is D3 and streaming some videos. I'm not saying I disagree, just throwing out a different opinion.

If it were me personally, I'd buy a used GPU with the r5 3600 and basically copycat the rest of your build, maybe swap the mobo with one that has early bios support for PCIE4.0 x16 and x4nvme.

Nothing to worry off unless you plan to use 4+ sata drive
