Buying a new gaming PC.

Just play games like SW Battlefront, Cities Skylines, Fifa, and other steam games tings. Just one that can run games like that fairly well, doesn't even have to be best graphics.

Just the PC, already got all the peripherals.

I'm living in Melbourne, Australia.

Thanks for the quick reply, the build looks good.
It does say at the bottom though that it might need a BIOS update, not sure what that is but will I really be needing to do that?

EDIT: I'm also reading bad things about the xfx rx 5700 xt raw ii online, it seems to run at very very high temps or something?

The MSI B450 MAX Series of motherboards were launched after the Ryzen 3rd gen. processor release for instant compatibility out of the box. You see that disclaimer because PCPP cannot differentiate from other B450 boards as to when they were released. That MSI board comes with updated BIOS.
As for the card, the AMD cards do tend to run a bit hot, but if you have sufficient case cooling with proper airflow, it should not be an issue. You can always go with a different model of that card if you want. But its a better card than the 2060 with a cheaper price tag...
