Hi everyone. I'm about to build a new pc and wanted to check my build looked ok and there aren't any major flaws.

The pc is being built for gaming, some 3d modelling and general household use. I've included 2 ssd drives as it will be a dual boot system. One for gaming and one for everything else.

My budget is £1,200 including an OS. I've got the build below to about £1,150 on hardware so I'm pretty much ok on budget.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: the list above is displaying slightly incorrect vendor info. The vendor of the mobo and cpu will flash the bios to allow the 3600 to work.

Nope. It says right there compatibility warning. Your mother boards will probably need to biod update and you will need a different CPU to perform that. You should probably stick to a motherboard that won’t require a bios update

Sorry I should have mentioned, the board comes pre flashed with compatibility for the 3600. Ive confirmed this with the vendor. My pc partpicker list is displaying the wrong vendor.
