PC PARTS:
AMD RYZEN 5 2600X

GIGABYTE RX570 4GB

ADATA SU650 2.5in SATA SSD 120GB

Seagate Barracuda 1TB

MSI B450M Gaming Plus Motherboard (AM4)

Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR4 Black

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-05 Gaming Case Black

Corsair VS550 550W Power Supply

*the power supply and case are a special bundle

and i have used PCPARTPICKER to see if everything is compatible but i want real confirmation because im really scared of buying the PC and it not working because of wrong parts
 
The RX 570 is a good card for the price but is a little underpowered for the Ryzen 5 2600X. The CPU can handle a LOT more GPU, but if you can't afford it then you can't afford it and the RX 570 is a good way to go. Having more CPU than GPU is the preferred "bottleneck". You'll get everything the GPU has to give and your CPU will have plenty of leftover resources. In my opinion this is better than putting the burden on the CPU and having leftover GPU that you'll never be able to use. At least with a slower graphics card you can stream or have chat clients open or do any number of things without impacting performance.

That said, you could go for a Ryzen 5 2600 and an RX 580 or maybe even GTX 1660 if you don't hate the green team. That would net you better gaming performance.

So Still going for the RX 570 is good but it could be even better going for the RX 580 or 1660 for better performance?

Much better build, the case (spec 05) really needed to change, it has really bad airflow and no psu shroud.

If it has a Corsair VS, it's more a "special" package than a special package.
 
Australia and 1000$
This is more powerful and balanced with quality parts...
