I'm going for a pure gaming PC with this build. I'm building in Germany and these components seem to be poplular and are available for a good price.

Thanks in advance for any feedback before I order!

I would buy a single 2x16gb kit, for 32gb ram. Easier on the memory controller, bettering your chances at reaching rated speeds. Also, for a bit less you can go with a Seasonic PSU, which should be better than that FSP built be quiet.

1)EDITED
logainofhades's advice for memory was better.

2)I'm unsure how well the 980 Pro is going to hold up in a Pure Base 600. Those Gen 4 SSDs need active cooling. :hot:
FYI, the M.2 slot right above the gpu is the worst location for them; it's quite the deadzone for active airflow.

Thanks for the reply. I've got the 980 sans pro version, which is not Gen 4 as I understand. Same issue here?

Thanks for that. I take it the FSP is inferior for some reason? Could go with the Seasonic, or also back to the RMx 750 I was looking at before. As for memory, this seems to be popular here and also a good kit?

No, it's not the same issue, just keep in mind the deadzone that is right above the gpu if you still choose to get a Gen 4 NVMe. Well, it wasn't a problem until Gen 4 devices came out anyway...
That motherboard does have a slot further down, and the drive would get more active cooling from there.

The non pro 980 isn't gen 4, which is the SSD I picked.
You're joking, right?
I am not. Seasonic makes the best PSU's on the market. FSP is very hit and miss, with their designs.

Good list, and I agree on the RAM 2x16GB kit is better choice, and Seasonic instead of the bequiet PSU.

I would also get a smaller SSD, perhaps 120/240/256GB for the OS and general software (office, browser, AV, discord, etc).

For any Seasonic there's a better alternative. Straight Power 11 is one of that ( against Focus GM/GX/PX). Better platform, much better fan, better cables, better connectors. LOL, even Seasonic doesn't make all the PSUs themselves. The budget series come from Helly and RSY and are pretty bad.
