Hi everyone.

I have an old PC that is on the brink of dying why I am eager to build a good gaming PC within my budget which is about 1500$. (Be aware that prices are about 15% higher in my country due to VAT)

The parts I have looked into is:

CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2600X

GPU Nvidia GTX 1080

SSD Crucial MX500 500GB

RAM G.SKILL Flare X DDR4 3200 C14 2x8GB

MBD MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC (MS-7B85)

PSU EVGA 650 GQ

CASE Phanteks P400s Tempered Glass

FANS Arctix BioniX 3x f140 and 1xf120 (2 x 140 for intake at front and 1 x 140 for top outtake and the 120 for back outtake)

I still have a 2 TB barracuda that I will use until I can upgrade it. Furthermore I am contemplating if the stock cooler will be sufficient? I don't know if I have to overclock or not to reach a higher potential for certain games, but i would probably need help if I need to do that.

I am looking for advice on the parts both together and individually. Any feedback is highly appreciated.

P.S. I spent a lot of time looking at videos and forums to put these parts together and I'd appreciate if any feedback would contain arguments for or against certain parts or the overall potential performance of this PC. Thanks in advance!

CPU: Save $60 by getting 2600 instead of the X.



You can always overclock the 2600 and surpass the X's factory overclock speeds. By getting X and spending $60 more all you're really getting is an upgrade from an below average cooler to an average cooler. You might as well invest that in getting a much better higher performance aftermarket cooler like H60:



Video Card: I recommend the newer GTX 1070 Ti over 1080 because it's competing well with the 1080 in performance at lesser price tag:

Memory: I recommend 16gb RAM as Ryzen's performance relies on memory and speed.

Power Supply: I recommend the EVGA G2/G3 instead or Seasonic Focus Gold or Corsair RMX.
