Hello ladies and gentleman,

I am considering building myself an AMD-based system mostly for light/mid gaming that would last me at least 5 or 6 years so I want to know your fair opinion and specifically tell me if I can downgrade my current PSU pick to lower the price.

Here it goes:

CPU : AMD Ryzen R5 2600 @ 168,90€
Motherboard : MSI B450M Gaming Plus @ 85,90€
RAM : Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666MHz CL15 4GB x 2 @ 59,90€
GPU : MSI RX 570 Armor 8GB OC GDDR5 @ 184,90€
Hard drive : Seagate Barracuda 1TB 64MB SATAIII (6GB/s) 7200 RPM @ 39,90€
Case : Aerocool Aero-300 FAW @ 39,50€
Case fans : Nox Hummer H-fan 120mm x 4 @ 27,60€
Optical drive : Asus DVR 24x DLayer Sata @ 16,90€
Mouse + keyboard : Ozone Doubletap Combo @ 36,90€
Mousepad : Ozone Ground Level Gaming L @ 10,90€
Headset : Ozone Rage Z50 @ 34,50
Screen : AOC Gaming G2460FQ 144Hz 1ms @ 224,90€

For the PSU I have picked a gold certified from my favourite PSU brand:

PSU : Seasonic Prime Ultra 750W 80+ Gold (Modular) @ 134,90€

These are Portuguese prices, if you think I don't need a gold certified PSU for this system please do say so and explain why. If there's anything cheaper that can work well without compromising the system, please do say so.
Also, do you think the rest of the system is ok? I really want AMD so please do not suggest replacing CPU with Intel or GPU with Nvidia.

Thanks in advance, I await replies.
 
You will need more ram 8Gb is barely enough for today and using up 2 slots for just 8Gb isn't a good idea either,also faster ram will be better for ryzen and not all ram works with ryzen did you check if this one will work correctly?
Do you actually really still use an optical drive? I have one too (because I have an older system) but I barely know that it's there.

Yes I checked if the RAM would work on the motherboard and if it was compatible with the CPU too, it is. I won't use more than 8GB for what I will do. Yes I still use optical drivers and I will keep using them. I need help about the PSU.

That was true on the first generation but the second generation has long had this bug sorted out. That said I definitely would not get 2666 RAM to save money because it's not enough speed. You should get at least 3000 or 3200 to be on the safe side. I run DDR4-3000 on my Ryzen 2600 rig and it works perfectly fine.

Like said before, get a faster memory, 3000 the minimum.
I would rather get a 580 8Gb if you can with the money you save from the PSU. If you get a 570, get the 4Gb as the 8Gb would be handy for 1440 gaming which 570 is now powerful enough.
Must have, SSD. Get it, Crucial MX500 is a good one.

The PSU, that is way overkill for the system, save yourself the money, your system won't need any more than 550w. Seasonic is a good brand.
