Hi Tom's Hardware!

I'm going to upgrade my PC from intel (i5-4570) so I don't have enough knowledge when it comes to AMD (not planning to overclock), so for the questions:
  1. Is this build good enough? just playing Valorant, and future RPG games? (but I'm more on FPS game so yeah)
  2. Can my PSU handle the load for this build?
  3. Any suggestions?
NOTE: I already have the GPU and PSU

CPURyzen 7 - 3700X
MOBOMSI MAG B550M Bazooka (AM4) B550, mATX, 4*ddr4
RAM16gb ddr4 3200 Kingston Fury black (2x8GB)
HDD/SSD250gb Samsung 970 EVO PLUS SSD M.2 NVMe + 1TB HDD
PSUSeasonic Focus GX gold 650watts
GPUGigabyte GTX 1060 6GB G1 Gaming

those parts will work fine together. psu is quality and plenty strong enough for those parts.

i would look into more storage though as games are getting rather large and 250 gb is gonna fill up rather quickly for most people. a nice big spinning hdd for basic data storage like pics and videos would work great. and down the line you can always go bigger ssd as prices come down.

Yes sorry for not inserting about the HDD for storage, but will do that, uhm about the performance it is still good? or should I wait for Ryzen 5000 series?

Double the storage, I believe is what they meant. Samsung is good, but overpriced. You can often get 500gb drives for prices similar to what they charge for 250g.
Yeah I think that too, I have an other option which is 500gb Kingston A2000 SSD M.2 NVMe (25% less price) is this a good SSD?
