Hey everyone, this is going to be my first build, sort of a mid range build. I'd like to know your opinions on it, if it's a solid build, if you'd change anything or add.
Thanks in advance!

Hi, that looks like a very good build. You could drop to a 3600 instead of the 3600X as the difference is not great at all and if you are happy to overclock you can make up the difference, the money saved can go to a NVMe M.2 SSD. They are a little more in price but for 250GB you are looking at around $40+ and currently the Intel 660p 500 GB is $65...

Bad advice with the new AMD systems you’re better of letting the CPU boost itself opposed to overclocking. If you’re rendering video etc then OCing is good but not for gaming.
Also if you’re not interesting in RTX or PhysX the 5700XT is a better buy than the 2060 Super

Aha I see, yep, prices are so different depending on where you are. As to the 3600 over the 3600X, I would still say the 3600 as it is so, so close to the 3600X across the board and the money saved (unless the price is very close) can go towards a better or bigger SSD for your boot drive.

Around 55$ more
