After 10000 post on here in 24hs I've boiled down my budget build.

What I hope to get- High settings most FPS & MMOS 1080P 60fps Smooth

What I had before-
i5 3470
8gb generic ram (idk the brand)
Gigabyte GA h67n itx board
Evga 450 BT 450watt 80 + bronze certified
Roswell FBM-x1 case
Evga 750 1g

What I've came up with
https://pcpartpicker.com/user/slayingwaifus/saved/jZ9Y99
Storage 250GB SSD and 1TB HD I'm pulling from old system

Decided on the 1650 Super instead of 1660ti so I could get a better PSU and a b550 MB instead of a B4.

Appreciate any thoughts or corrections on a compatibility issue or mistake I've made . THANKS!!

Total Cost- $715


QUESTION!- Is there a way to tell if my MB will fit in this case?

I think that motherboard needs a bios update before it can work. Also that 1660ti should hit ultra on 1080p
Oh i was under the impression the B550s came ready for 5 3600s. Yeah i defiantly wanted a 1660ti but in order to get a better PSU and MB i went with the 1650 Super. Hopefully later i can buy a 1660 ti or better and sell the 1650 for some change. Going to look into the bios for the MB thanks for pointing that out!

Just double check and make sure go to the Gigabyte page and check that motherboard

The Gigabyte B550 board has out-of-box support for the 3600. The pro series CPU's and maybe the XT series need bios updates but yours is fine and it will easily fit the Lian Li 205 case, which supports ATX, mATX and ITX. There's a smaller version, the 205M that supports only mATX and ITX boards which would work as well. You'll need a fresh windows install with the new parts.
