Hi All,
I am in the process of building a new PC to play games with my brother that lives in a different state and need some advice on my build. I don't the best of the best but a mid to high mid tier range would be great. I would like this to last for a few years. We mostly like to play game like Satisfactory, Assassins Creed, Cyberpunk, No Man Sky, Witcher 3, etc.. I want the games to look good, but do not have to play on the highest setting for everything.

I appreciate any feedback on the build, advice, potential issue, and if there is any way to reduce the price a bit (I still need monitor and peripherals).

Thank you!

The GPU prices are pretty nuts right now,but RX 580 8gb should definitelly do better than RX 570 4GB

I'd change the hard drive set up to a 1TB SSD and do away with the mechanical drive for now.

I'd honestly go for the SATA one,wont feel that much of a difference anyway.

Thank you! I was also looking at the 5 5600 but they are pretty hard to find.
