Hi guys, I was thinking about building my own PC and wanted to share to see some opinions.

Specs:
CPU: I5 9400f
GPU: MSI GTX1660 6gb
Mother: Gigabyte GA-H310M-A
12 GB RAM (at the moment)
Power: Cougar XTC600w 80 Plus
500 GB ssd
I am searching for a mid-low budget build, what do you think?

Note: I will mainly be playing LoL, WoW and R6S

That would be my planned one,
Here I can get the RX 5700 for $630 in my country, and for $530 in Amazon, we have a 60% importation fee. And I can get the CPU for about 230, so this build is considerably more expensive than my budget, problems of the underdeveloped world.

Get a better PSU - the Cougar is not one I'd trust, and the EVGA BR is a poor quality unit.

Take a look at the first link in my sig - it's a MUST read for PSUs. You DO NOT want to gamble the life of your expensive components on a poor quality PSU.

Nothing against the 9400F,but can you get the latest variant of the Ryzen 1600? The 1600AF it's called,should be mentioned on the box. Would be my choice if about as expensive as the 9400F,motherboard plays a role too of course.
For reviews,
ryzen 1600 af review - Google zoeken

If the 9400F is budget wise your best option,at least try to get matching ram,preferably 16gb kit. And maybe give us some other options for a psu that are available to you.
