This is how I would personally go about it. M2 SSD 1tb is not the fastest but it's far faster than Sata at a good price. Once you hit a certain point with SSD the improvements arnt noticeable for most people. For example my Sata SSD will boot in 10sec, my wife's m2 SSD with read speeds of a little over 3,000 will boot in 2-3sec. This SSD is half that speed, and those boot to windows speeds are with other software booting up. Programs are instant on hers, mine will sometimes feel like a very slight delay.

2600 vs 2600x difference is with the supplied heatsink and a few small changes in speed. Something you can do in the 2600 as it's already unlocked.

The cpu headsink is slightly better than the 212 Evo, and saves you money with no risk of a leak. Downgraded the motherboard too. The combination of the money saved between the CPU/heatsink/motherboard easily covers the cost of the upgrade to a 2700 RTX GPU. The sacrifice is if you were planning on going for the highest overclock achievable it probably dropped a few hundred MHz. In terms of mild overclocked where you try to keep everything cool, low voltage, etc there may not be much a difference if any. I know in the past my budget boards did mild overclocked just as well as higher end boards when I compared my results with what people got online.

Choose a good case you like I just remembered looking at this one and thinking it looked good. Just as long as it provides good cooling and fits your needs.

Get a X1700 Ryzen instead. Better future proof CPU with more cores.

Thanks for the help everybody, really appreciate it, decided to do some changes.

PSU: EVGA Supernova G3 650w
CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x
RAM: Corsair LPX 3200Mhz 16GB
MOBO: MSI B450-A Pro

I have some concerns, is the MOBO any good? I've read about it and people say it's good for the price.

And is it worth going with something else than the Kraken M22?

Ditch the cpu cooler. the stock cooler of 2600X is good. stick with the 2600X, better gaming performance than the 1700X.

g3 650 is a good choice.

i would suggest the 1660ti intead of the 2060. the RTX cores in 2060 is cant do that much ray tracing. or if you are using ray tracing, u will be forced to play at 1080p medium 60fps. go for 1660ti and enjoy 144fps 1080p gameplay.

u can upgrade to maybe a hp ex920 500gb ssd.....

Would the Asus GTX 1660ti Strix Gaming OC do 60+ in 1440p?
I might consider getting a 1440p monitor @ 120hz, so knowing i would be able to run games at 60+ would strenghten my choice.

The SSD doesn’t sell from my retailer so I’ll stick with the Samsung for now.

Thanks alot :)
