This build is a rough first draft for a pc that I'm planning to build.

Built for playing modern mmorpg games like final fantasy 14 on 1080p 144hz max settings

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gtZFxs

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600 - 200$ | GPU: XFX Speedster Radeon RX 6600 - 310$ | Motherboard: MSI B550M PRO-VDH - 160$ | RAM: ADATA 16 GB - 80$ | SSD: Verbatim Vi550 SATA III 512gb - 50$ | PSU: SilverStone SST-SX500-LG v 2.0 500gb - 160$ | CPU FAN: Thermaltake UX 100 - 16$ | Screen: MSI Optix G272 - 330$ | Case: Fractal Design Define Mini C - 110$

Total cost: 1416$

Are any parts here overpriced or overkill? What are your thoughts on this build?

I live in Europe btw.

2) Would it be a good idea to buy a standard atx mobo with many pcie slots and a ryzen 7000 cpu , so then I upgrade in the far future I won't need to spend on a new mobo and cpu and this way save money?

Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it a ton :)

What is your budget? 1,400 USD? (Let me put together some parts at this budget and see what I can come up with)

General Thoughts
-5600g is an APU which means it includes integrated graphics, since you have a GPU, its not needed, stick with just a non G processor
-5600g, stock cooler is fine
- In RPGs, low resolution, high refresh is not really what people shoot for.
-Lets see if we can get you into 1440p for around the same budget
-If not, CPUs really push FPS at 1080p, you might beef up your processor.

Here is what I could do for $1400.

Really good bang for the buck. Some compromises on PCIE Gen4, but that isn't really needed for gaming.

Where? You can in the pcpartpicker change country at the righthand top side for more to the point list.

Think quite a few things i would change, like cpu /motherboard and would with 1080p go for something like 24" if sitting quite close to it. With 27" you might be able to see the pixels.

Wonder if the monitor in this list is new, but if so seems a good choice, if not new look further,

1. Generally, when building from scratch, always buy the newest/most up-to-date parts that you can afford now, which should make the next required upgrade a little further down the road... hopefully you can spring for something better than the 5600/6600 combo....which is getting a little "long in the tooth" at this point in time :D

2. I would also suggest you budget for a large storage drive (2-4TB if SSD, or 6-12TB if a spinner) to store your games one, and keep the 512gb for your OS & primary apps

3. Although you can use any size case, ATX cases are generally roomier inside, making them easier to build in, route & connect cables, swap parts in & out, and establish sufficient/proper airflow etc.

This can be a factor for a gaming rig like you want, with the physical sizes & heat output of current & upcoming GPU's (& PSU's) seemingly increasing to really high levels...

4. I did not see any case fans listed in your parts summary, even though most cases come with 2-3 so-so factory units, you will most likely want more/better than them for a gaming rig, so you should also budget some $$ for them (~$80-100)

Good luck with your build :D

Whatever you do (you have very nice suggestions from other members in the thread), never buy a PSU that have 500 gigabits on its description ("PSU: SilverStone SST-SX500-LG v 2.0 500gb - 160$).

That there alone shows you that the seller have not even the smallest clue of what its selling

Did you click the link in the partslist? That "gb" is just a fault from the OP.
