Hey guys,

I'm sure you've had hundreds of these questions before and it must get annoying, but I'm a noob and I'm not 100% sure if I have the right parts or not. Could you guys help me?
This is my parts list:
- Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 UDIMM 2666MHz CL16 1.2V Unbuffered ValueRAM
- Gigabyte GA-A320M-H Ryzen AM4 mATX MB 2xDDR4 3xPCIE
- AMD Ryzen 5 2600, 6 Cores AM4 CPU, 3.9GHz 19MB 65W w/Wraith Stealth Cooler
- Corsair 550W CV Series CV550, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Compact design, ATX Power Supply
- Corsair 88R mATX Mid-Tower Case USB3.0+2.0 1x12cm Fan
- MSI nVidia Geforce GTX 1660 Ti VENTUS XS 6G OC GDDR6 7680 x4320 3xDP1.4 1xHDMI2.0b 1830 MHz TORX Fan 2.0 G-SYNC™ HDR VR

Sorry if this is too much information, better safe then sorry.

Suggestions on how I could go cheaper but still keep the performance would be great too! (If there is something here that I have cheaped out on i.e the PSU then let me know).

Thanks!

I didnt include a storage drive since you didnt have one on your list, but you can find HDD very cheap and even SSDs are cheap especially used.

I went with a 1660 Super over the 1660ti since the performance difference is very small and IMO not wortht he cost difference. You could get a much cheaper case, I just went with one that is still better then most in the price range.

Whatever you choose keep in min with Ryzen 3200mhz or faster Dual Channel RAM is highly recommended because of perfomrance. I would also stick with a B450 mobo rather then the 320.

I've read everywhere that ryzen processors like a lot of RAM, but is 3000mHz really necessary, or only if you want the best performance possible?

Ryzen's want fast Dual Channel RAM, the Amount of RAM is irrelevant and only matters to what you are doing. 16GB is a good amount for a gaming PC.

3200 or faster is recommended and there can be noticeable performance hits to anything slower.
