Hey folks!

I've locked down on the following rig. Primarily for gaming but I'm also planning to do some light editing. Just wanted to get a few fresh eyes on the parts before pressing the buy button!

Here it is:
Ryzen 7 3700x
Gigabyte X570 Gaming X motherboard
G.Skill Trident Z 3200 DDR4 2x8
WD Green M.2 SSD 480 GB
Corsair CX650M semi modular PSU
NZXT H510

I've already got:
Hyper 212 Evo (from previous system)
1TB HDD (reformattable from previous system)
Gigabyte Windforce RTX 2070 Super

I'm ready to go, just a last minute check.

Thanks folks!
 
What speed is the RAM? The sweet spot is 3200-3600 MHz with a CL of 16. I’d also go for a better quality psu, while the CX650M is plenty of wattage it’s quality is mediocre. A gaming build puts the psu under high load for long periods of time (gaming). If a psu fails connected components can get damaged.

The RAM is 3200 MHz. Could get a slightly faster kit but I like the RGB :p. What PSU would you recommend around the same price?

Okay so I'm looking at the Corsair 650W TXM, one question though. If I'm not mistaken the one one Amazon ships with a US standard power cable. There won't be an issue if I swap that out for a UK standard right? (Since I'm from India)

Im running 3200 until lower latency 3600 gets a little less pricey.

You have a really nice build.
