Hi guys I'm trying to buy a new pc to play 1080p atm what I have thought so far is the following:

Ryzen 3600
Asus strix b450f
16gb of ram
Gtx 1080
Evga 750w g2

I want a good looking and cheap case I got 75$ for it I love the nzxt h510 but I have read that it doesn't have a good airflow, I'm looking for the antec p82 but I still see the nzxt more beautiful, so can you guys give more options about a good cheap case.

Also I want to know if the 3600 would be a good choice, I don't have money to buy a better cpu, I'm waiting for the black friday and the new ryzen 5000 series release so the 3600 gets cheaper but what I'm not sure if the 3600 would be a good cpu for 1440p in a future, i know I will have to change the gpu but I'm just asking is the 3600 is good enough for 1440 pair with a 2070 or the new 6700?

Also as I need big ssd and my budget is not that much money I'm thinking to buy a team group 1tb ssd is that a good brand o should I buy a sp technology? I know ester digital or Samsung is better but they are too expensive I wanted a 500gb nvme but nowadays games are 100gb at least so I need more space than speed
 
The 3600 is a solid cpu.
When you go into 1440p, it actually becomes better, because when the resolution is higher, you are more likely to be gpu bound.

That's a solid build, but why a gtx 1080? do you already have it or just found a good deal on it?
The 1080 is overkill for 1080p, being somewhere good for 1440p 60-90fps.


As for the ssd, This doesn't really matter. Get what you need.
In my opinion, having a smaller, faster ssd, say a 512 gig nvme ssd, and a 2tb (or what you need) hdd is better.

There is nothing wrong with the NZXT 510 case with your choice of hardware.

I have a 3800x and 2070S in that case with only the rear mounted radiator fan and top exhaust fan. CPU hits 74C max and 56C on the gpu.

Now I wouldn’t put a 3900x or try to stuff a 240 AIO in it.

I love my NZXT, see avatar pic.

Good thought I will go for the 3600 then. And yes I got a good deal for a 1080 and I want it because I bought a 165hz monitor

NZXT looks good.
I'll give them that, I have an H700i as my case, but their airflow is just.. abysmal.
