Hello guys, I'm getting my first real pc and I've decided to build it on my own since I heard that it's much better. I do though have pretty limited knowledge when it comes to pc building. But down here I have something that I have kind of put together with a bit of help. What are your personal opinions? The Pc is for gaming (Fortnite. PUBG, Apex Legends and Rules of Survival) and school. If you would like to do some changes feel free to do so. Every little bit of help is highly appreciated.

CPU: Amd Ryzen 7 3700x
Cooler: Stock from cpu
GPU: Sapphire PULSE Radeon RX 5600 XT
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 275R Airflow
Motherboard: ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS
Ram: Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB (2x8GB, 3600 mhz, 17cl)
SSD: Toshiba OCZ TR200 240GB
HDD: Toshiba Intern Hårddisk P300 2TB (7200rpm
PSU: Corsair RM650 650W (2019) - Is it good or bad?
Fans: ?
Monitor: Acer 24" Predator XF240H 144Hz (2190 sek)

Ps. I live in Sweden and pc+monitor comes out to 15 676 sek or around 1600 usd and if you could do something better with that please let me know. My max budget for everything would be 16 000 sek.

Is the stock cooler enough for the cpu when running it stock without any overclocking or do I need a better cooler?

Thank you!

Found your new post, by random though. Should reply to a comment to send the user a direct notification. Also there's a section that's called 'build advice' that's better suited for this thread, but don't sweat it. Anywho copy pasta below what I wrote before:

Everything is compatible.
The PSU is enough for this build, as for the fans this is more of a preference thing but your case does come with 3 120mm fans out the box so you don't need anymore unless you want your own chosen and quieter fans. See your case's manual to locate the fan installation locations and what's compatible.

The stock fan will be fine for the 3700x, I have a 3900x and use the stock fan - I've also overclocked it to 4.2GHz. It sits at 75-80c full load, could be better but it's still stable enough. You should be fine.

My main comment is primarily on the storage. Toshiba is not a terrible brand but it's not a leading brand in this day and age anymore. If you can and don't mind perhaps go for a WD: https://www.amazon.com/Black-Performance-Desktop-Hard-Drive/dp/B00FJRS628/ref=sxin_2_ac_d_pm?ac_md=2-1-QmV0d2VlbiAkMTAwIGFuZCAkMjAw-ac_d_pm&cv_ct_cx=WD+2tb&keywords=WD+2tb&pd_rd_i=B00FJRS628&pd_rd_r=4279cb1d-36ad-40b5-ba8d-26455575a8dc&pd_rd_w=JQfpM&pd_rd_wg=RbcGP&pf_rd_p=0e223c60-bcf8-4663-98f3-da892fbd4372&pf_rd_r=4858Y8Z5NGSCBY8KGWTQ&psc=1&qid=1582121461&s=electronics
Better support and quality.

You also don't need a 3600 RAM kit if you're going to play those basic games. A 3200MHz RAM kit is the best price-to-performance option if you're trying to work on a budget and you'll lose very little to no performance.

I would go with an R5 3600, and get a better GPU.

A balanced gamer will budget about 2x the cost of the processor for the graphics card.
You are approximately 1:1.
Look at a lesser cpu and a stronger graphics card. Particularly if you play fast action games.

With today's lower ssd prices, I would buy a 1tb ssd like the intel 660P nvme device.
Omit the 2tb HDD, you can always add one later when you need the storage.

650w will run even a RTX2080ti and the corsair rm series are good units.
