Hello everyone,

Its my first build and would really appreciate some input from more experienced builders.

I plan on running the following:

CPU: AMD Ryzen5 3600X
MoBo: MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE( WIFI) or
Asus AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi)
(Would these be overkill?)

GPU: ????(NO IDEA!!!)

PS: EVGA 850 GQ 80+

RAM: 2X8GB Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 3200MHz (Are the MGz too low?)

Memory SSD: PNY CS900 240GB 2.5” SATA III

Case: Thermaltake V200 Tempered Glass RGB Edition 12V MB Sync Capable ATX Mid-Tower

Please and thank you. Any input and/or advise is much welcomed.
 
Ok so for the CPU,dont go with the X model,its more expensive,yet packs the same performance as the non-X model.
For the motherboard,i would go with the TUF X570-Plus (Wi-Fi)
For the GPU,definitelly would go for the new GeForce RTX 3000 series card,now there are 3 models,the 3070 (500$),3080(700$) and 3090 (1500$).
The RTX 3070 is better than the previous champion,the 2080 Ti,at more than double less price.The RTX 2080Ti was 1200$,3070 is 500$.The 3080 is better than 3070 and 3090 is better than 3080.If i were to choose which gpu i would go for,my pick is definitelly the RTX 3070.
The psu is a bit overkill in my opinion,i would go for something like a Corsair RM 750W
For the RAM,i would want it to be 3600MHz speed.
For memory i would add a 1TB/2TB HDD,since 240GB is really low for windows and games on 1 drive.
Case is also good.
So here is your build at the end of the day:

i didnt enclude a GPU since there are no RTX 3000 series cards available for purchase yet.

Will the 400 MGz Ram speed make a lot of difference I already have these?
 
DDR4 RAM 3200 MHz is an almost defacto 'standard' goal these days, especially with prices what they are. (If you can find quality 3600 MHz RAM for minimal price increase, lots of folks try to get to that point with Ryzen 3000 series CPUs, as they thrive/scale better upwards on higher RAM speeds...

oh if u have them already then there is no point really.I mean 400MHz wont give you that much fps,its just like a personal preference of mine.Im sure you can overclock your ram to reach 3600MHz,but its not needed.

Thanks for the help. Had to return some stuff so I took advantage and got some 3600MHz Ram.

Any idea what would be the best budget GPU if I plan on not doing alot of gaming?
