I'm thinking about buying this PC (Amazon UK only).
PCPartPicker Part List: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZPf6cY

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor (£188.99 @ Amazon UK)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim 35.14 CFM CPU Cooler (£19.99 @ Amazon UK)
Motherboard: MSI X470 GAMING PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard (£113.47 @ Amazon UK)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory (£78.97 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Kingston A400 120 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£20.86 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£38.99 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB VENTUS XS OC Video Card (£279.99 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case (£54.99 @ Amazon UK)
Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE 500 W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply (£52.05 @ Amazon UK)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer (£27.22 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £875.52

I'm looking to run most games at competitive settings at 144fps. I also might do a bit of streaming/light video editing. I've considered Ryzen's 2nd Gen but ruled it out but I dont think it's suitable as I don't want to upgrade for a few years.

Please tell me if this PC is worth it. I don't really care about RGB or anything like that as long as it's quiet and performs well.

It's a good build my friend. However undoubtedly change the PSU for a better quality unit.
Obviously as Pcpartpicker has already stated, you will need to update BIOS before it will use the 3600.
Streaming however is another issue entirely, many often use seperate systems for streaming.
 
Reactions: Metal Messiah.

I heard it from this discord PC build PPL, it may not be true but the Vulcan sticks are cheaper than the vengeance
