Build I made for my little brother. Let me know if I should change anything. Trying to keep it below $1500 CAD

CPU: AMD RYZEN 3 2200G 3.5Ghz Quad-core

CPU cooler: Noctua NH-U95 46.44 (I have a Coolermaster 212 evo. Would it work in this build or too big?)

Motherboard: MSI B450M Gaming Plus Micro ATX AM4

Memory: Kingston HyperX 16gb 2600Mhz (already own)

Storage: Seagate Barracuta 2tb 7200rpm

Video Card: Zotac 2060 6gb AMP video card

Case: Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV TG MicroATX Mini Tower Case

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA GM 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular SFX Power Supply

Total: $1146.26 CAD (unless the Evo 212 will work then $1071.31)


Thanks for the help!

the case has 192mm clearance for the cooler the 212 is less than that at 159mm. the 212 will do the job.
I would get a 240gb SSD for the system with the saving of re-using the cooler. you may need a mounting kit for the cooler for the AM4 socket. eyes open

A few bits have been changed to cheaper alternatives, but they can easily be changed back as there is still wiggle-room between this and your maximum budget.

The motherboard features MSI Flashback, a feature that lets you update the BIOS without a compatible CPU. This will let you update to Ryzen 3000 support, and so the Ryzen 5 3600 will be supported.
