hello everyone,

i am new to building a pc and i did my research but want/need your experience /opinion.

i am planning on a pc that i can use on multiple tasks like steam games/photo&video editing and browsing on the web.

this is the setup i a thinking about:

and as a CPU the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X

please let me know if this is good or bad
thanks for the help
 
The RAM is too slow for Ryzen. For a 2600x you want 3000-3200mhz, higher might rated RAM might not achieve rated speed on 2000 series. Slow RAM really hurts Ryzen performance. The MSI B450 Tomahawk Max has better VRM’s and therefore better for future cpu upgrades, is this an option? I’d also go for a higher quality 550w PSU.

okay, i will choose a better RAM but the tomahawk is not possible.

What is the overall price of that system and what is your budget?
it's around 800€ and that is also around my budget

Okay it's a touch overbudget but I put this together using PC partpicker - i'd also go to their forum for advice as it's very active and much easier for someone to put together al alternative list for you there: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/forum/2-part-list-opinions-wanted/ .

The GPU offers about 15% better performance and I put an M.2 HD in there, as well as faster RAM. The 1600AF performs at a similar level for a lot less. I haven't used that PSU before and I'd prefer to have 550w but it's got good reviews. Just something to bear in mind.
