Greetings everyone,

I'm picking new components to build a gaming and productivity pc.
I'm gonna be mostly gaming and doing music production/sound design work.

The components are the following:

CPU: Ryzen 5 5600x or Ryzen 7 5800x
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition
MOBO: Gigabyte B550M Micro-ATX Aorus Elite (rev. 1.0)
RAM: G.SKILL Trident Z 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4-3600MHz CL17
PSU: Seasonic Core GC 650W 80PLUS Gold
Case: Micro-ATX Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L
Storage: SSD M.2 2280 Western Digital Blue SN550 1TB 3D NAND NVMe

As for the GPU, I'll be re-using my old GTX 970 until prices and stock become normal again.
Suggestions and advice para welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Hello there!!
Go with the 5800x for your productivity stuff and your games will also be smoother due to 8c/16t and for your ram go with lower latency like CL16 or 15. What about storage?

Yeah sorry I forgot to add storage :sweatsmile:
Storage: SSD M.2 2280 Western Digital Blue SN550 1TB 3D NAND NVMe

Silly question, is it possible to add another nvme ssd on the Gigabyte B550M motherboard?

Get a Samsung 970 evo nvme ssd it has dram cache whereas this particular does not have, dramless ssd do not perform like the ones with dram also the price difference isnt quite significant so yes imo go with the samsung drive
 
Hi Louis5562.

Yes that board can support 2 M.2 but the M.2_2 only support PCIe 3.0 x2 instead of x4. So any M.2 in the second M.2 slot will run at half speed.

PCPartpicker wasn't letting me get the Masterbox Q300L and I was wondering why. It's a Micro ATX case and your motherboard is a full ATX board.
MOTHERBOARD SUPPORT - Micro ATX, Mini ITX. The Q500L is the one supporting full ATX board.

Hyper 212 with a Ryzen 5000. Buy something a bit better like a Noctua NH-U12S or something.

Can't find that PSU anywhere and it's 200 dollars at the websites I can see it getting sold. Get something else if it's that price for you. Something like a Corsair TXM, RM, RMX.
