Question New build for gaming and streaming

Hello, guys, first of all, thanks in advance for any help and advice..

I'm a pretty newbie when talking about hardware, so a friend told me to come here to get some opinions about the pc i'm trying to get.

I'm from brazil, so i guess working with prices here would be worthless, since our money is so low right now when comparing to dollars, but i wanna know if i'm gonna be able to play decently with this setup while streaming(not professional, just starting it)

Display Gamer Acer LED 23.6´ Widescreen, Full HD, HDMI/Display Port, 144Hz, 1ms - KG241Q Pbiip

AMD Ryzen 5 3600x Cache 32MB 3.8GHz

DDR HyperX Fury, 8GB, 2666MHz, DDR4, CL16 (2)

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-AB350M-DS3H V2, AMD AM4, mATX, DDR4

GPU Asus TUF3 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6GB, GDDR6 - TUF 3-GTX1660S-O6G-GAMING

Hd Ssd M.2 M2 Sata Wd Green 120gb 2280 Wds(no brand preference here)

HDD 1tb(don't really have a preference here aswell)



System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, streaming, movies.

Location: São Paulo/SP - Brazil

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

finally, do you guys think this pc is good enough to reach some high fps even when streaming? what would you change? guess my main concern right now is with the motherboard or if i should get an Ryzen 3800x instead of the 3600x, but any tip is welcome!

the games i'm thinking about playing right now would be cs:go, valorant, cod warzone.

Thank you, guys!!

Have you got the PSU? This is usually the hardest one to find in countries like Brazil. You probably won't be able to start the PC right away in this configuration, because the GA-AB50M-DS3H does not support Ryzen 3000 out of the box.

sorry, i forgot to add the psu there, but i'm getting one too, a Corsair 450W 80 Plus Bronze CX450.

also, i thought the motherboard was able to support it, which one you get that is compatible with ryzen.

That's a good PSU, but you might not be able to upgrade into -80 Ti class GPU in the future. If that's what you want then I suggest at least a 550 W unit. Most don't end up getting one anyway, so you will probably be fine.

Anything from MSI that has a "MAX" on it is guaranteed to work fine with Ryzen 3000, so get that. The B450 PRO-VDH MAX for example Try getting RAMs that is at least 3000 MHz, as 2600 might bottleneck the Ryzen, and get a dual channel one. Single channel RAMs will severely bottleneck Ryzen, or any CPU, really. Also, if the 3600X is at least 15 USD more expensive than the 3600, there's no point getting it over the 3600.

Got it, so i guess i have some spare money to get the 550W, will do that and alreayd changed the motherboard to get this b450-pro-vdh max, the 3600x is only 10 R$(around 2 dollars) more than the 3600, so i'll get the 3600x.

A friend told me to get the RAM Geil EVO X II, RGB, 16gb(2x8GB), 3200MHZ, DDR4, CL16, do you have some experience with this brand? he told me to get this one because it's built for ryzen apparently.
