Build Advice Gaming PC for about ~ €900-€950 ?


Jul 25, 2016
I'm looking to build a gaming PC in the price range €900-€950 ($950). I could go above if it's worth it.
I'll be playing single player games, so games I'm looking for are Baldur's Gate III, Star Wars Jedi Survivor, Forza Motorsport, F1 23, Starfield, Cyberpunk 2077, Hogwarts Legacy... So, basically RPGs, racing and action adventure games mostly.
Mainly in 1080p/60Hz. I could bump older games to 4K if I can get stable 60fps, but mainly 1080p.

I've been out of the loop with PC gaming, so I need advice on this.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor (€138.00)
MB: no idea, pls advise
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory (€72.00)
Storage: Samsung 980 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 PCIe 4.0 X4 NVME Solid State Drive (€68.00)
Video Card: ASRock Radeon RX6700XT CLD 12G Radeon RX 6700 XT 12 GB Video Card (€336.00)
Case: Corsair 4000D ATX Mid Tower Case (€75.00)
Power Supply: Corsair RM750 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (€125.00)

Total: €814

I have no idea what MB to get. Most of the MBs I pick on pcpartpicker have compatibility issue with this CPU, saying if they are on older BIOS FW it won't work with CPU.
Case is placeholder. I can't find 400D Airflow where I live, and NZXT H5 Flow is 120€ which is a bit too much. But, I'm willing to pay for it if it's worth it.
Also, I don't want to cheap out on PSU, so feel free to suggest more expensive ones.
Will this CPU be a bottleneck to GPU? Is it better to go for 5800X for example?

And if this is all wrong, feel free to suggest totally different build.

All the AM4 motherboards will say that, because the Ryzen 5000 series was released without a new chipset. The AM4 500 series chipset was released with Ryzen 3000 series. Most 500 series motherboards will have the BIOS update; however, it is possible that a motherboard was made before the release of Ryzen 5000. We are talking 3 years ago now.

That CPU + GPU combo should be fine. There may be some scenarios where you are CPU limited and lose some potential performance because of it. Your next best option is the 5700X. However, if you spend that much you might consider going AM5 + DDR5. That would cost even more, so sticking with the 5600X may be a good economical choice.

Perhaps you meant the RM750e power supply? The RM750 without an "e" or "x" is an older design. Any should be good though. The RMx is the better option while the RMe is more economical. I think they went with a cheaper fan is all I know of, but I'm sure there may be some more things the RMe compromised on as well. Still a good unit though.

Case... I'm not too keen on. I'll let someone else help you there.

I just checked 750RMx PSUs on the store's website, there is 750RMx (2018) and 750RMx v2. Is the v2 just a newer iteration of the regular 750RMx?
Hey there,

Either of the RMX will be good. They are quality units.

The build is pretty good too. The 5600x might be a small bottleneck at 1080p, but not in the way you might think. The CPU and GPU are actually a good balanced match. Should compliment each other well. Specially at 1440p as the bottleneck shifts from CPU to GPU.

This would allow you to upgrade the cpu to i7 14700 later on.

solid gpu and cpu

psu with 16 pin connector for future gpu upgrades
