Hey everyone,

Looking for an advice for building a new PC with the currently new AMD parts. I've decided over a few parts but still hesitating about the other.

First of all, it is going to be a med-high(1440p ~120hz) build for around 1000-1500 euros.

Parts on the list:

CPU- Ryzen 3700x
GPU- Radeon 5700xt(Waiting for the reference cards - custom cooler to be released as I am not a fan of blower type)
Case: Thermaltake CA-1l3-00m1wn-00
SSD: Kingston A400 480GB + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM (Might upgrade to larger later)
PSU: Looking for an advice
RAM: G.Skill Tridentz RGB 3600mhz CL16 2x8GB (looking for an advice) up to 200Euro
MOBO: Aorus Elite X570 (Looking for an advice) up to 250-300 euro


*Not really going to overclock(Neither RAM or CPU), boost clock is going to be enough of the CPU.


Thanks in advance!

Corsair txm series are decent units with good price, I would recommend 650w unit.
The gold certificate will lower your electricity bill, but if you can spend a few dollars more, i'd go with antec EarthWatts gold pro 650 since its 1st grade quality, and the txm is 2nd

Thanks for the reply, I am actually just fine with plugging the ethernet cable, so wifi on the mobo isn't necessary. I just wonder, is there any better looking mobo for that price range? Most of them look worse than that Aorus Elite(It has pretty decent styling and some RGB).

Besides that, how about RAM?


* That PSU looks well, but will 650W be enough? I can spend up to 100 euros for a PSU. So the Antec fits well.

The RAM is good, and the 650w PSU is fine, and has some space for overclocking should you ever wish.
Most x570 boards are ugly imo, just something about the blower on the heatsink. The Aorus Elite looks good, and so does the Asrock X570 Taichi. Also the MSI X570 Gaming lineup looks alright too.

Thank you. So overall- the PSU has all the connectors I need? (in case if I need 8 plugs on the GPU for the reference model), and the rest of my build is it all fully compatible with each other?
I also wondered about ram's CL speed, took 3600MHZ CL16, thought it's the most optimal for Ryzen 3000 series CPUs, the faster as CL14 seemed to be too expensive, yet I thought not a big difference in gaming...

The PSU has enough connectors for 2 'high powered' GPUs. And yes, all of your build is compatible. As for the RAM, CL16 will be absolutely fine. For gaming on Ryzen, CL16 at 3000MHz is considered the optimal minimum, so yes at 3600MHz it will perform very well.

The Aorus Elite X570 has 2 M.2 connectors. One is between the CPU and top PCI-E x16, and one is between the PCI-E x1 and bottom PCI-E x16. NVME is a much faster protocol than that used by SATA, which is why it uses a faster port, the M.2 port.

What are the capacities of those? Mine had 480GB, would most likely go above that now, so I don't need to use my old HDD which is quite outdated(doesn't work as good as before anymore)

It depends what is cheapest to do. Just remember, if you are going to have an SSD, it should be an M.2 NVME drive. This is the fastest type. Is the a400 you were looking at this one? If so, then it is the NVME version, and would be a good choice. You can still use the 1TB HDD.

So it was the right SSD in the link I sent you? If so, it's even cheaper than my current SSD that I've bought a few months ago
And no, the one I have is different, here it is: SSD older
Yes that was the right one. It will be faster than your one. I wasn't aware you already had an SSD. You could store your OS and your most used programs and games on the M.2 SSD, other games on the SATA SSD, and everything else on the HDD.

Going to see what's up with ordering those parts. If they are available at moment and all. Thanks for the answers, currently have none left. Might ask a few later this upcoming week once the parts arrive or so.
