Yes sir I am .
Wow I never expected that much help! Thank you so much!
I admit I was seduced by the RGB parts but out of interest the parts I selected would they have worked together?

Also howe long will the build you'#ve suggested last me? I should be able to swap out the graphics cards in future, right?

What is the intended use of this computer ?
Gaming ? Scientific computation ?

I kept you some rgb for that reason, you get configurable rgb front fans and a configurable rgb cooler this way.

Yes the b550 board should allow you cpu upgrades through ryzens lifecycle and will take any gpu you care to throw at it.

The 5700xt is a beast of a gpu anyway though, I paid £40 more for that gpu 6 weeks ago.It will even manage 4k resolution on a lot of titles.
Its the best price to performance card available in the UK at the moment.

Mainly gaming but I won't be rendering anything maybe some small animations on clip art studio but for now I just need something to get me by because my laptop is dying.

Thanks for your time and help! Though I might change the case seeing as the fans in their make a lot of noise and change the cpu fan for a noctua
