The items I've bought so far are: CPU, CPU Cooler and MoBo. I don't think Black Friday will bring a huge difference to most of these items, so I took the plunge and started buying but I am stuck at GPU (either the Zotac or a slightly cheaper MSI ARMOR 1070 8GB) and RAM tbh, 2400 CL15 or 2666 CL15, roughly the same price.

If you could help me make the final decision I'd really appreciate that. Ty!

Thank you mark5916 ;) Can I ask your opinion about the RAM choice? should I stick to 2400? I saw a few of the 2666MHz ones being cheaper on amazon.de

I am from UK, but I am on Black Friday mode and the whole European market is a possibility haha

I saved a fiver on the CPU cooler and another 11 on the MoBo, it slowly adds up.
