Hello guys,

This is my first gaming PC build. And I would like to hear if you have any suggestions to add or change on the build.
I am from Serbia - Europe btw so the prices are pretty different here tho.

i will use PC for gaming mostly.

Here is the pc:

- Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max ~ 111 €
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.60GHz ~ 170 €
- Graphic card: GeForce RTX™ 2060 GAMING OC PRO 6G ~ 347 €
- RAM: Crucial Ballistix 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) CL16 DDR4-3600 ~ 86 €
- SSD: KINGSTON A2000 PCIe M.2 500GB ~ 61 €
- HDD: SEAGATE BarraCuda 1TB 3.5" 7200 rpm 64 MB SATA 3 ~ 36 €
- PSU: Corsair TX550 ~ 84 €
- Case: MS TITAN II PRO ~ 62 €

I have a question: Is that GPU (Gigabyte model) best in term of money/value? I want RTX 2060 model
Or should i go with cheaper one like EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO Gaming ?

All suggestions are welcome!

Cheers
 
The KO is a better value.
all cards (that are the same series, i.e 2060 ko and 2060 windforce and 2080 strix and 2080 ftw)

Are all very VERY similar in performance, a slight oc from the factory is usually not ever close to 10%, which you can do by yourself or have gpu boost do it for you.
The cooling on the gaming oc is better, but for the 2060 which is pretty cool, it doesn't matter that much.

other than that, its mostly a good rig.

Thanks for the info!

So basically the one RTX 2060 that i find the cheapest is the best option :D

I have one more question I forgot to ask.

I'm also looking for 144Hz gaming monitor. What do you think about ASUS TUF Gaming VG249Q ?

Thanks
 
Got any suggestions?

My budget for monitor is around ~200€.

I can find here in Serbia in that price range - Msi optix mag241cv
Not sure, and don't know what stuff you can find where you live, but on this forum you can find hundreds of reviews, so just look at all of the monitors you can find with the features you want and in this price range then check with reviews.
