Hey guys, I'm new here.

Just put together a list of parts for my first gaming PC specifically for the new 2020 Flight Sim.

I wanted to see what your thoughts were since I'm somewhat computer literate, but this will be my first PC build so I'm not 100%. I was hoping to cut some costs somewhere, but don't think anywhere is really worth it. Is there a cheaper alternative for power supply perhaps? - (I'm based in Australia). Also planning on just using the stock AMD cooler for the CPU, and not overclocking.

Appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and advice for my first time building a PC.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with Wraith Stealth

Motherboard: ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming 4/ac Motherboard

GPU: MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT Mech OC 8GB - (I was considering an RTX 2060 Super, but this is slightly cheaper. Heard there might be issues with AMD graphics drivers, might be total bs?)

Power: Corsair RM750x Gold 750W Power Supply

Storage: Samsung 860 QVO 2.5in SATA SSD 1TB - (if it's worth it, I could also spend a time bit more and switch this to Crucial MX500 M.2 SSD 1TB instead of the Samsung drive? Easier installation, faster speeds? Not fussed though since I'm already hitting 2k AUD)

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2x8GB) 3600MHz CL18 DDR4

Case: Lian Li Lancool Two Mesh Performance Case

This should be better budget wise with no compromise on quality...
