Hey All!

I'm trying to put together a PC I can use for gaming, editing videos and photos. My budget is around $1000-$1200. Also this is my second build and I'm trying to use it for another 4-5 years so keeping that in mind I've put together this part list. Feel free to comment and add suggestions!

Gaming: I play Fortnite, Overwatch and Dota 2 primarily but looking to play other games as well at 1440p/1080p.

Editing: I use Filmora, Adobe Premiere and After Effects for videos and Photoshop and Lightroom for photos.

Apart from the PC I'm looking for a good 144hz monitor that is 1440p - 24 or 27 inch that fits my budget (this is apart from the PC budget).

Part List:

CPU
- Ryzen 5 3600X (or Ryzen 5 3600?)

GPU - RTX 2060 Super

Motherboard - Still looking at a good one for this build. X570 or B450?

RAM - 16GB 3600MHZ

PSU - Modular 700W or 650W

Storage - I have a SATA SSD and 2TB WD Black HDD. I will need a M.2 for a boot drive. Suggestions are welcome.

Case - NZXT H510

Cheers!
Thanks in advance.
 
IN GENERAL, the "modern" PSU platforms are 450/550/650/750/850/1000/1200 watts. So I typically steer clear of everything else.

If you go B450, you'll want either a motherboard with BIOS flashback, an MSI "MAX" series mobo, have some sort of guarantee from the seller that the board has had a BIOS update to support Ryzen 3000 out of the box, or have some way of acquiring a Ryzen 1000/2000 CPU to perform a BIOS update. While all B450 boards CAN support Ryzen 3000, it's not guaranteed that they'll ship with said compatible BIOS version.

What other alternative do I have if not for B450?

I chose the x570. You can take a long term cjance on the B450's, wait for the B550's or get an x570 in your budget.
