So, I'm considering building the following computer listed with these specs. I want to be able to play Minecraft with high shaders (I know silly but still) and play GTA V with LSPDFR and/or Five M. I also want to be able to record Minecraft, doesn't matter with or without shaders, with OBS. (If there is a better recording software PLEASE let me know) I want this to be cheap but also get what i pay for. Could this computer possibly get up there? When playing GTA im just looking at 1080p with med-high with a minimum of 60fps. I also want to be able to play indie games or just any game at mid-high with 60fps. Thank you for your opinions in advance

Also, some side questions, Is this ram compatible, Should this be enough wattage. For a first/second build should I get a standard ATX case or stay mini/small?

Build

I'd advise a motherboard with bios flashback in case it ships with an old bios. Also, an RX5700 beats a 2060 and costs the same. It may be a little louder, but better performing.

This should handle all you need with ease.

You can go full ATX or Matx. Your choice.

So How would one go about making sure the motherboard has the bios flashback. I haven't been able to see a company updated the bios or the motherboard be 3000 ready. Also, with the RX5700, Is it possible to have the powerful shaders and what not and be able to withstand it for long periods of time?

Most of the cheaper boards are MSI, like the B450m gaming plus. The Gigabyte board you listed doesnt have it.

Unless you need RTX, the 5700 will be able to handle more powerfull shaders than the 2060. I think Minecraft with shaders is definitely fine on an RX5700.
The blower models will get hot and a little noisy (not too bad) under load, but this won't affect performance over a long period of time.
