Build Advice Compatibility for new build


Cheaper, kept with White/Black/RGB theme. Disregard the error message for the motherboard as it ships with Ryzen 3600 support. The GPU is much better then the 1050 ti and was able to give you 1TB of NVMe SSD storage.

Do you already own any of these components? If not, I would probably do something more along the lines of Wildcard's build, at least if you intend on using the system to run graphically-demanding games. Putting a $100 cooler on a more mid-range CPU does not exactly seem like an ideal use of funds, especially when the graphics hardware would be holding back performance in most modern games. A 1660 SUPER would be around twice as fast as a 1050 Ti, whereas you probably won't notice that much of a meaningful performance difference between a Ryzen 3600 and an overclocked 9600K. The 9600K will be a little faster, at least in moderately-threaded games and applications that don't utilize the 3600's additional threads, but the 3600 shouldn't be too far behind, and may even pull ahead in future, more heavily-threaded titles. For most games, the graphics performance will matter more than anything.

I already own the hard drive, gpu, psu,
Should I go for 1660 super and Ryzen 3600 instead of what I have I would have to save for the gpu

Even so you should still post full details of them so our experts can tell you if it's all going to be suitable/compatible. For example, PSU may be underpowered for new GPU, or a brand we wouldn't recommend.
