I am looking for help with my new build stuck on the GPU all my components are.

Asus Prime X470-Pro ATX AM4 Motherboard

I do not have a monitor but i am wanting to be able to do 1080p anything higher would be fine but not a need at the momment. My budget is 200 (USD) i want to be able to overclock it. But if there is anything in my Build that you do not recommend please tell me i am open to all offers in a reasonable price range not trying to go over 900 (USD) and im focusing on trying to run escape from tarkov on this pc.

Personally I'd go for something along these lines. If you're only gaming, the 2700x and the 2600 have pretty much the same performance, and differences in gaming performance, if any, would usually be unnoticeable. The stock cooler should be fine even with a very modest overclock and you really don't need an X470 board. You could opt for a 2060 instead but at the moment of writing this, the cheapest one I can find in stock is $320 vs the $310 RX 5700 which you can bios flash to a 5700 XT and reach stock 5700 XT performance levels (I have this exact card and flashed the XFX RX 5700 XT THICC II BIOS onto it and it works like a charm) However you will not have ray tracing if you go the 5700 route (I have heard AMD is adding raytracing support but who knows when or how good it will be)

I personally don't play the game but the performance looks to be pretty decent on the 5700 if you set the right settings. Your fps could be around 10-12 more on average than what is shown in the video if you account for the fact he's recording and you flash your BIOS which is not a difficult process at all and pretty safe

I really wouldn't trust listed system requirements as they're hardly accurate and you never know what the requirements are aimed at (ex. are the recommended requirements for 1080p ultra @ 60 fps or 1080p high, etc).
Yea true i understand would there be anything else besides a 5700 i am still on it just want to open my options to more stuff and go back and pick one.

Yeah as I mentioned the RTX 2060 is a good option but the cheapest one I could find is $320 vs the $310 5700 so only 10 bucks more.

Did you decide on the 5600 XT? If so I'd go with either the SAPPHIRE PULSE or the PowerColor RED DRAGON, but if I had to choose only one, the SAPPHIRE PULSE. And yes it does matter as far as the 5600 XT goes because some don't have the newer BIOS due to their cooling capabilities. This is a pretty helpful guide if you get a 5600 XT that doesn't have the newest VBIOS

That’s good but I’d stick with the slightly faster ram I suggested over getting slower ram just for RGB. But, only 500gb of storage? That’s not very much and only enough for maybe 4-5 big games before the SSD is full

there's only a small difference between 3000 - 3200 - 3200 mhz memory on ryzen cpus , you can see a benchmark so basically there's no difference between them, so i chose an rgb 3000 mhz corsair vengeance memory and for the 500 gb ssd it can do the job until he buys an extra hdd

Can it though? I mean, I don’t know but I just saw he at first chose a 2TB HDD for himself and assumed he needs a lot of storage. With only 500 gigs of storage and games like COD and RDR2 taking upwards of 100 gigs each he’s gonna be hard pressed to find space for all his games/files.
