Buying a rig from ibuypower (Don't flame me too much but I don't want to build my own)
I plan to use it for VR/Cyberpunk.
  1. Ryzen 5600X vs 5900x - I can spend the extra money if its worth it. I don't know how much performance/future proofing an upgrade will provide
  2. Suggestions or thoughts on water cooler/Aircooler? I prefer Aircoolers but the ones available are terrible. I would only do very low OCs at most.
  3. MOBO suggestions?
Let me know if you have any other suggestions, thanks in advance!! :)

If you are gaming or light productivity take the 5600x. If you are doing a LOT of productivity that benefits from a lot of cores, get the 5900x.

The motherboard you have selected is decent.

The AIO is not really needed versus a cheaper air cooler or even the stock cooler for the 5600x. If you need to cut costs, I'd remove that.
 
Hi ctomster.

If you entend to play games and that's it that 5600X is gonna be a very good CPU.

If you want to do editing and use workstation programs that needs more cores going for the 5900X is not a bad decision but if you don't nee that just go for the Ryzen 5600X.

Here is the price of that system If I were to buy it on pcpartpicker. Around 300 less.

Thanks for your reply! I don't mind the cost (its a difference of $20 more for the liquid)
-Given that difference in cost, would you put a liquid cooler on a system like this?
- Are there big concerns or things to look out for with liquid coolers? Internet seems mixed and Im not sure if its worth the risk..
They have a shorter lifespan than a traditional heatsink fan. Pump failure is not uncommon as AIOs age. Liquid coolers CAN leak as they age, but this is rather uncommon, especially with new designs.

For $20 more, id get the AIO.

Thanks for your reply! How do you feel about the stock aircooler vs the given liquid cooler? The price difference is $20, not a big deal for me. Im more leery of the risks behind liquid cooling since it is not something I am comfortable with handling if it needs adjustment. :)
