Hello, how would you rate this rig? For some gaming.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge Wifi ATX AM34 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000
Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5 SSD
MSI GeForce GTX 1660 6 GB Ventus XS OC Video Card
NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply

I'm not 100% sure on what they would want too play but I'm pretty sure this build wouln't have much of an issue running most games on High-Ultra with some the newer games and upcoming games set to Med to low.

Thank for any help.

Not bad overall. What is your budget and country as there are a few changes that could be made to get more for your money.

Thank you for the reply. They're from the UK. They want to spend around 1K I'm not sure if they'll go any higher, they may do if its worth it.

I wouldn't buy an X570 board from MSI, had VRM issues at launch, dunno if they've been resolved.

Don't read the article on Tom's the testing is extremely flawed. Actually don't pay attention to any "news" from toms hardware, they are pretty much clueless.

Thank you. I was just reading one. I could always change out the Mobo for another.
I'm the best with knowing what CPU fits in what board though. I was looking at a

MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC Motherboard ATX, AM4, DDR4, LAN and 802.11AC WIFI, USB 3.1 Gen2, TYPE-C, M.2, MYSTIC Light Sync, HDMI, Display Port, AMD RYZEN 1st, 2nd and 3rd Gen

In my opinion
-downgrade from an x570 to a B450. Is there a specific reason you chose x570?
-ditch aftermarket cpu cooler, stock one should be fine
-get 3200 for the ram
-take savings from mobo and cooler and upgrade from a 1660 to a 5700xt

OK, thank you.
From a x570 to a ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard?

Assuming no OC is done, then the included cooler for the Ryzen is plenty. You can get an aftermarket if wanted but it will only change the total amount of noise.

Run the OS and applications on the 500GB SATA SSD and the games are on the 1TB SSD.

Thank you very much. I'll send them a link and see what they think. Looks like a good build for them.

Good build overall if you can try to save some money on areas like the SSD or Cooler and put that money towards a better GPU. If you don't get a separate cooler because the stock cooler that comes with the cup is pretty decent but if you want to overclock your cup then you should get a cooler. you could also save money if you get a power supply that if not modular or if you want to you could get a power supply that isn't bronze certified

I think he means CPU not cup

Never, ever cheap out on a power supply. Very bad advice. Save money elsewhere if it's a must, but not on the psu.

Its good but I would buy another 5700XT model because that specific card has overheating issues, it cools worse than the 2 fan model.
