I'm going to be playing on 1080p, not sure how much Hz it'll have or the size of the monitor.

GPU: 1660 Super (239$) (22$ SHIP) HERE

CPU : Ryzen 5 1600 (100$) (10$ SHIP) HERE

MOBO: Gigabyte B450M DS3H (71$)(18$ SHIP) HERE

RAM: 16 GB (80$) (10$ SHIP) HERE

STORAGE: 1 TB SSD (119$)(12$ SHIP) HERE

PSU: 600 Watt (54$)(27$ SHIP) HERE

CASE (25$) (0$ SHIPPING)

____

TOTAL for the parts: 688$

TOTAL for the shipping: 99$

GRAND TOTAL: 787$

we have 273$ left, should I change anything?

all that's left is a monitor that I'm getting from a nearby store

I would recommend switching to the Rx 5700xt instead of the 1660 super, you will get much better performance. Otherwise, the rest of the build is very good.

Hmm, tough to know without the specifics of the monitor. If it is 60 hz, the 1660 is probably okay, if it is 144, might need some more oompf. Perhaps a GTX 2060 or a 5700xt if you plan on upgrading to 1440 in the near term.

I would suggest increasing memory speed from 3000 to 3200. The same brand / style is actually cheaper.

You might consider an M2 NVME SSD as opposed to a Sata one. It will be faster. I have used the 660p and it works well for me. Have heard good things about Sabrent, but haven't used myself.
 
If you really want to max out your budget... this build is for 1080p 144 Hz or 1440p.

Yeah, what country are you shopping in and what's your budget in local currency? It's generally best to work with your local currency instead of converting everything to US markets. Pricing is different in various parts of the world. More than just the currency conversion.

He's buying from Italy I'm guessing, that's why my recommendations are made with it.pcpartpicker... all of his links were pointing to amazon.it
