Muchr better perdormance at around the same price:
  • you'll get much better gaming performance with the 5700 XT compared to the 2060
  • the mugen 5 is one of the best price to performance coolers... it will do better than your 120 AIO from CM
  • replaced the 3200 RAM with a 3600 kit with the same CL16 latency
  • replaced the nvme +HDD combo with just the 1 TB NVMe
  • upgraded the Corsair CV with a CX model... the CV series is mediocre compared to the CX which is really decent for its price
While the Pro4 is not as good as the TUF is still plenty for your 3700X.

EDIT: Changed the GPU model so it fits your case

More than enough for what you need. But I suggest grabbing an X570 motherboard for the same price and for a more solid VRM, high power phases, and full PCIE Gen 4 support to juice the true potential of your 3700X. But the B550M should suffice -- plus you're going to stream, it'll be nice to get extra more FPS from your game when you're LIVE.

Alright, thanks for the suggestion! Do you know any good x570 micro atx boards? otherwise i'll stick with that asus tuf b550m board since I can't find any good x570 micro atx boards.

This would be better all around at the same price.
  • you'll get much better gaming performance with the 5700 XT compared to the 2060
  • the mugen 5 is one of the best price to performance coolers... it will do better than your 120 AIO from CM
  • replaced the 3200 RAM with a 3600 kit with the same CL16 latency
  • replaced the nvme +HDD combo with just the 1 TB NVMe
  • upgraded the Corsair CV with a CX model... the CV series is mediocre compared to the CX which is really decent for its price
While the Pro4 is not as good as the TUF is still plenty for your 3700X.
Thanks! I'll definitely use this one
