Asking for build advice according to How to Ask for New Build or Upgrade Advice forum.

Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: Max 350

System Usage from Most to Least Important: CAD & Gaming

Do you need to buy OS: Yes I already have it.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I buy my parts from stores in the Netherlands

Location: City, State/Region, Country - The Netherlands.
Parts Preferences: AMD CPU and GPU

Overclocking: NO

SLI or Crossfire: NO?
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: What I want to know is if an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and Radeon RX 580 8 GB GPU Can take the mentioned CAD and Gaming programs. I can play games at a normal setting and I use CAD for medium-large projects.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I am not. I am building one.

"medium-large CAD projects" is pretty subjective. But that combo is good. Your stated budget is seemingly ONLY made to include the cost of the Ryzen 3600 + RX580, so there's not much to talk about there. If we were to talk about the entire system build budget, we might be able to get you up into a RX5600XT or something, but...

The rest includes:
  • B550 Motherboard
  • 16GB DDR4 RAM
  • SSD M.2 nvme
And then you have a PSU and case.

All of this cost around 700 euros including the GPU and CPU. I dont plan on spending more than that though.

Sure but what im saying is that I expect it to run at a decent performance.
Again, don't know what you classify as "medium-large CAD projects". But yes, for your budget, I'd say you're maximizing your performance. It should be good. I do "fairly large" 2D CAD files on a mobile Intel CPU IGP.

I was doing this as an exercise to figure out what ~700 euros buys in the Netherlands, so I figured I'd dump it here just in case it was helpful.
