Hi Everyone,

looking to buy a new system as soon as i can get this dilemma sorted, what to build ....... i have a budget of $3000 and have come up with these, its 5-7 years between my builds so im always way behind and out of touch.

Im really only a gamer with a bit of basic graphic design and i wont be getting a 4K monitor yet if these builds can even run one, only need 1080 ATM

ive never had a AMD system before so the AMD build might be way out, anyway a couple of questions:

  1. do these builds work in their current form, everything play together nicely and no issues when throwing it together ? especially the CPU fan, is it ok for normal use.
  2. can i do better for my $3000 ?
Im in Australia if that make any difference.

ASUS ROG Strix B550-E Gaming Motherboard

Not sure if it was but a brief sale, but, thought I recently read on Tom's that the Ryzen 7 5800X was down to sub-$300 on Amazon? (That's a lot of performance for what only 6 months ago was decent even for 5600X pricing)
