Question My 1. build

Sep 21, 2019
Oh good. I was hoping you weren't using a 9590 plus a crap cooler.

What will you use this for?
Are you buying the 1080 used?
Monitor resolution and refresh.
All new monitor is now 60 but i might upgrade
and i will use it for gaming

I wanted to ask if this build will work and if the power supply will be able to connect. Im asking because i saw some people say that they lack some connector and they had to use different
I think the people who said that most likely don't know what they are talking about. That PSU should work fine but you could probably get a better unit if you wanted to save money. Also if you wanted to save money too, you could drop the cooler since it doesn't really perform any better than the Wraith Spire.

The Ryzen 5 3600 surpasses the similarly priced Ryzen 7 2700x in gaming. The 3600s stock cooler is not as good as the 2700x included cooler, so I added a Deepcool Gammaxx 400.

I switched to a motherboard with BIOS flashback to update the BIOS to support the 3600 without an older CPU.

I switched to ram that is a much better deal.

Switched to an SSD with a good price.

The GTX1080 is no longer produced. If you want to buy one used you can, but if you want new the AMD RX5700xt is actually better performing. You could also go for the AMD RX5700 (non-XT) for a little less money.

The TXM will work, but the RM650w is a little cheaper.
