Since PC components prices have risen lately, I'm building a new gaming rig. So my question is: is Ryzen 5 2600x still good for gaming for the next few years ? Other components are:


GPU: GTX 1660 Super 6GB
RAM: 2X G Skill Aegis 8GB 3000MHz DDR4
MOBO: Prime B450M-A/
SSD: SAMSUNG 860 EVO 250GB
HDD: 1TB
PSU: Coolermaster 600W
 
I have no idea what exact model your existing PSU is, so I don't know how much it cost.

HOWEVER - the priority should be for the PSU above all else. Don't cut corners on the PSU. It is a safety device, and will help protect the rest of your system if something goes wrong. A bad PSU will not provide clean, stable power, possibly aging your components faster, or, upon failure, risking damaging your other parts.

See the first link in my signature. It is a MUST-READ.
