I am hoping to get my first gaming pc and have learnt it is probably better to build one myself rather than buy a pre built and was just wondering if the parts I want will all work well together and wether it’s the best I can get for the price.
Most of the parts I am hoping to buy are from Ebuyer and they are:
Ryzen 5 2600 - £124
Asus TUF B450 plus, also comes with free asus tuf mouse - £88
Sapphire pulse RX 590 8gb - £199
Corsair VS550 psu - £42
Toshiba P300 1tb - £35
Kingston A400 240gb ssd - £29
EG CD48 RGB ATX case - £29

And I am planning to buy RAM off eBay as it is cheaper which will be Corsair vengeance LPX (2x8) DDR4 3000mhz - £68

Total = £615
Any help or advice will be appreciated, thanks.

Corsair VS series is not for Gaming PC's dont cheap out to the psu it connect to all the other components of the computer and can easily destroy some of them if something wrong happen. If you dont want to break the bank look for this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Certified-Hybrid-Modular-Supply/dp/B06WW8G3S8/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=tx+550&qid=1568919212&s=shoes&sr=8-6&th=1 it has 5 or 7 years warranty if i remember correctly. I would still recommend Seasonic Focus plus 550W or corsair RMx 550W that have 10 years warranty.

That PSU is not a quality unit. Just get a single 1tb SSD.

Does the 1660 perform better than the 590 or are they similar?
