Hey everyone so my parts list is below, I'm pretty limited as I'm living in Colombia so if I buy on amazon, we need this to be under 200USD or else I pay additional taxes and that wouldn't exactly promote a budget build :) I've already purchased everything below either on Amz or here used @ a bit of a markup.

No plans on streaming, I really wanted to just casually play some games like GTA V, Diablo 4, maybe some FPS games. I plan on maybe going for a 1650 super or 1660 in the next couple of months to give me some better performance but I wanted to post my parts list here and make sure I didn't make any mistakes or maybe I can swap something out as soon as I get it.

Some concerns are the M.2, it's a Sata III so I'm not sure If I'm missing out really on a lot of speed differences, the Ram is a 3600 CL 18 which from what I've seen isn't too bad and really just those two things. I got the specific motherboard because of the Bios Flashback... no older chips to upgrade a Bios if I get a different board that may not support the 5600G.

Just a pref.
I would not get a psu with less than a 5yr warranty.

I would go with a 500 series chipset, even if it is the A520, as it was made for Zen 3. 3600 CL18 doesn't perform any different than 3200 CL16, so you can save a few $ there. I would choose a case with better airflow. Definitely go with a higher quality power supply. Be prepared to get more storage, asap. Games take up a lot of space, and you do not want to run an SSD near it's capacity. You may be able to get a much better NVME drive, for the price of that sata one.

What have you purchased already?
No way the total can be under $200.

A m.2 ssd in sata III mode will perform well.
You probably cant tell the difference any more than these guys did:

Well I've purchased everything in the Parts list and $200??? ohh.. I was referring to total cost in the cart, I have multiple orders each under 200 or I'd be charged quite a lot in taxes which I could avoid :) my total build as shown above is $544.89.

I was just watching some videos about Sata III M.2 vs. a faster NVME and yeah, the speed at least when launching games or apps isn't very noticeable which is fine, I was about to go spending a bit more money for nothing :)
