Hi Guys,
First of all, I m nuub in making PC, and this is my first Build, I gathered as much as Information I could, But nowhere is better Than TomsHardware, Of course. Follow is my build.

Ryzen R5 2600
MSI Geforce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6GB
CORSAIR Vengeance RGB DRAM 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 3200
MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC AM4 AMD
Seagate 2TB Barracuda 7200 RPM
PSU No idea ! :??:

Hopefully Everything Mentioned Above is Compatible, But i have few questions, like what PSU will i be needing when building this PC ? And should i buy RAM with speed up to 3466Mhz (Mobo supports 3466) ? And will ATX Size Cabinet will be sufficient ?

Thank You
Have A good Day.
 
The RAM you have is fine, but it may or may not run at 3200 MHz, RAM is still a bit in the grey area when it comes to Ryzen, but you should be able to get at least 2933 MHz from that kit, and that's good enough.

As for PSU, a Corsair CX450 or CX550 is enough, 450 is if you won't be upgrading GPU in the future, 550 is if you will be upgrading. If you ever plan on going with some high-power consuming stuff like SLI 1080 or CrossFire Vega, then you'll need a much more high quality unit, perhaps an EVGA G3 650 or 750 W, or a Corsair RM650x or RM750x.

An ATX mid tower case will fit everything mentioned here, and an ATX full tower if you like 'em big ;)

550W then, i will not be upgrading this setup anytime soon, As far as RAM speed goes, could you prefer anything out of the grey area maybe ?

 


Best thing to do is check the memory QVL for your specific motherboard, see which kit can run at 3200 MHz, and buy that kit.

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450-GAMING-PRO-CARBON-AC#support-mem-14

This is one kit you can buy: CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16 ver4.31

The link to buy it: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16-VENGEANCE-PC4-25600-1-35V/dp/B072LX99L9

Of course, it's overpriced. But there are many other kits in that list. Numbers like 16 and 32 in the model number signify the capacity of the RAM, like the number 16 is present in the above kit's model number. You can use that list to find memory that will run at any speed you want, from any manufacturer you want. Good luck!

The Last One i Choosed for Myself was a little cheap, but i was looking for one with LED :D Anyway, This Mobo itself seems like a Problem, what you think about MSI B450 Tomahwak or maybe something u got in ur mind ?

 


What makes you think the motherboard is the problem? Either way, the ASRock B450 Pro4 is a good board, the Tomahawk is good as well. They're all fine, really, it just depends on you - what color scheme you want, what brand you prefer, what your budget is, etc.
