Hi guys, using PCCASEGEAR to build a PC for a friend here, just looking for a bit of advice on the build.

He would like to keep the price roughly around the same point +/-$75, also he is using the customisable prebuilt section so not too much of a change is possible.
Just wants to confirm that the parts are definitely compatible (even though they should be) and whether are any alternatives that are better). He is rather cautious about this before spending over $2000.

Appreciate all the help given, thank you.

Hello friend,

For a moment I thought "christ thats expensive" but I realised you're probably Aussie since your using PCCASEGEAR.

I know a friend that uses a Ryzen 5 with a 2060 and it runs great. I dont think that should bottleneck either. You've pretty much covered all over bases and looks like a pretty great build in my opinion.

Areas where you can save money:
- Stock cooler is fine, no real need for aftermarket cooler
-16 gb of ram is fine, 32 is not needed.
-Look for a case that already has fans like maybe the p400A

Bottleneck calculator sites are trash, and in no way accurate.
