I'm trying to build my first PC, and I've narrowed it down to this:


I know its a little overkill, but i want to be able to use it for years to come, and add it a second GPU.

I want to know if there's compatibility issues with this build..is the case too small? would you recommend something else?

Please help! :)

PC Part Picker is decent at picking out compatibility issues, although I wouldn't solely depend on it.

Perhaps you love the Samsung, but the 3900X and X570 mobo do support PCIe 4.0, so you may want to check that out. There's been some pretty aggressive pricing on the Sabrent Rocket 1TB over the past little while. (NewEgg had them as low as $149; I had already bought mine for a little under $160 from Amazon.) They do run hotter than the PCIe 3.0 SSDs, but with liquid cooling right next door on the CPU, I wouldn't think it would be a big issue.

Note that Ryzen 9's ideal RAM speed is 3600, although the performance difference from 3200 isn't huge (and you can overclock the RAM too).

That should run fine. Do you have a MicroCenter near you? They tend to have the best cpu pricing and additional $30 off when you purchase a motherboard.

Do you really need the 3900x? The 3800x is very close when gaming. Could save a bit there.

The NVMe 4.0 drives are really fast but are they worth it right now? Probably not for most users and definitely not if just gaming.
