[SOLVED] Which Pc should I buy, RX 5700 or 2060S?

Hi,

I want to buy a new pc, but I can't decide which one to buy.

Should I buy the MSI RX 5700 XT Gaming x or the MSI 2060 Super?
and what motherboard should I buy with it and why?

I want this to be a fast and stable pc

Any other tips would also be appreciated
That is a huge CPU cooler for a CPU that doesn't need something that large. The included cooler is plenty unless it is too loud.

While the faster RAM will increase performance, spending 30% more than the CL16 3200MHz RGB RAM for a 2% gain doesn't make much financial sense. For only an extra 8 Euro over the G.Skill Trident you could get 2x16GB non RGB.

The 5700XT is the faster of the two, but people find it hit and miss for drivers.

The 860 EVO is a good SSD, just not worth the extra 20 Euro over the Crucial MX500, much less being more expensive than the WD Blue SN550. Are you planning on having the OS on the SSD and games on the HDD?

If you are spending this much on a system don't go cheap on the PSU. For 90-100 Euro you can get either a 550W or 650W Seasonic Focus GX PSU or 85 Euro for a 550W Corsair TXM.
