Hi! I need advice with my PC build. I already chose all important component, but I think I can replace some parts with cheaper versions but with same quality. This PC will be used mostly for games.

The main problem is I don't know how much power I need for the whole system and maybe you will have some suggestions about CPU. (right now i'm thinking that maybe better to choose something from AMD).

Also I added monitor that I use maybe it's important too.

The whole system price should be lower then $1500

The EVGA G3 650W is a solid choice for the PSU, you could go with the 550W version as well. Another PSU I'd consider is the Seasonic Focus Gold.

Price to performance I'd take the AMD Ryzen 2600 however for 1080P/144hz you may be better off with the 9600K especially if getting 144 FPS is a must as the 9600K does have better performance per core.

Now if you aren't into competitive gaming then I'd easily go Ryzen 2600/RTX 2070 and go with a 1440P or 3440x1440 ultra wide.

For $1500 this is what I'd get but I'm more into single player games/MMO's & some semi competitive titles.

@WildCard999, thanks for reply! I read several articles about ryzen that it's better for work in applications (video montage) rather in games, but I will think about it! Did you overclock your CPU? Is it worth or raw version from box pretty good?
only thing I can think of is swapping out the RTX 2016 for a GTX 1660ti - you will save some money and not see too much difference if you play at 1080p.
@jamesanyoung thanks for reply! Yes, as @WildCard999 mentioned I want to try RT.

The Ryzen 2600 is good for both games & rendering. On my system the CPU is stock but XFR2 keeps my clock speed around 3.9ghz while gaming. The stock cooler keeps it around 62C however it's pretty noisy and I'm happy with the FPS so I haven't really got around to it. Keep telling myself when I get the extra $40 I'm going to buy either the Arctic Freezer 34 Duo or CM EVO 212 Black but then I end up spending it on Steam sales...

This is more suitable for competitive gaming and can run all games even high spec games at max setting and push it above 60fps with ease over longer period of time.

What is available for PSU's in your area?
The best variant I guess is Seasonic Prime 550W, but it little bit overpriced in Russia. What do you think about Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850W?

It's little bit hard to mention all PSU's, where a lot of different companies except EVGA and Seasonic overpriced. What good companies for PSU?

The Thermaltake Toughpower Grand would be fine.
