Hi
So i was looking into building my first Gaming Pc and here are the specs i have


CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
MoBo: Asus tuf b450 pro
PSU: Fractal Design 600 w 80+wight certfied
Case: Phanteks eclipse p400a white edition

GPU: rx 5500 xt (Already bought)
SDD: Using old 250-ish gb

my budget was around $1000 but now after i bought the GPU it's 800

I can easily get all of these components for the price but i wanted to know if there was anything better out there
or if this build would give me any problems
 
If this is USD, you can do way better...

If you are playing with a ryzen 5 3600, i would recommend returning your GPU also as you could get something a lot better such as a rtx 2060 or rx 5600 xt if you get refunded for a little bit more.

Im looking to buy one similar to yours and im getting a 5 3600 and probably rx 5600 xt alongside 16gb of ram.

You should also get a HDD to go alongside your SSD if you havent already.
