Hi guys, so this is my first time actually jumping into the pc scene and I have pretty limited knowledge when it comes to pc building. But with a bit of research and asking around, I have kind of put together something. Feel free to make any changes or give feedback :)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (1990 sek/205 usd)
GPU: Sapphire PULSE Radeon RX 5600 XT (3590 sek/370 usd)
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C (1149 sek/118 usd)
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B450-E Gaming (1790 sek/184 usd)
Ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB (2x8GB) 3200 mhz cl 16(999 sek/103 usd)
SSD: Toshiba OCZ TR200 240GB (499 sek/51 usd)
HDD: Toshiba Intern Hårddisk P300 2TB (7200rpm) (679 sek/70 usd)
PSU: Corsair RM650 650W (2019) (1090 sek/112 usd)
Fans: Inet Tyst 140mm Fläkt, v2, Svart (99 sek/10 usd)
Inet Tyst 140mm Fläkt, v2, Svart (99 sek/10 usd
Monitor: Acer 24" Predator XF240H 144Hz (2190 sek/225 usd)

I live in Sweden and this pc comes out to 14 174 sek (1458 usd), I would say that my budget is around 14 000 (1440 usd) with the monitor. If you could do something better with that budget please let me know :)
My only requirement is that it has wifi and bluetooth (doesn't have to be from the motherboard). I would highly appreciate any answer and help since I'm a newbie and you probably know more about this than I do.

Thank you!

Hi Johannes.

That build is decent but I would change some stuff in it.

- Change the motherboard to the B450 Tomahawk Max. The one you took will need a BIOS update to support the Ryzen 5 3600. The Tomahawk Max works with the 3600 out of the box and it is the most sold B450 at the moment.

- Go for the Crucial MX500 256GB instead - https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX500-250GB-NAND-Internal/dp/B0764WCXCV/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3UDBEWYCXKZGW&keywords=crucial+mx500+250gb&qid=1582411224&sprefix=crucial+mx500+25,aps,161&sr=8-3

- Go for the Seagate Barracuda 2TB - https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-BarraCuda-Internal-Drive-2-5-Inch/dp/B07D99S8Z7/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=seagate+2tb&qid=1582411335&sr=8-7

- You could spend 30 more USD to get a 2060 Super.

- Not too sure about the Toshhiba SSD and HDD.
First of all thanks for the reply, my mobo does come ready for the 3600 (I have confirmed with my retailer), I have looked into the B450 Tomahawk Max. Although it is a good board I actually need wifi and bluetooth that's why I went with my mobo. And if I buy the tomahawk and then later buy adapters it will be too much for my budget. If you know anything about the b450-e gaming that is bad or any review I would like to know that since I don't actually know a lot about it. Or if you know any other board around that price point with wifi and bluetooth I would highly appreciate that too. Or a good combination of wifi and bluetooth adapters. And about the toshiba I have actually changed my ssd to this Crucial BX500 240GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (CT240BX500SSD1) will it be better?
I'm sorry if I asked too much I really don't know a lot about this and would really appreciate every answer.

Thank you!
