  1. I am not too interested in overclocking, at least not yet. I can always upgrade. I think I'll stick with the 3200mhz RAM, but thanks for the suggestion, and thank you to everyone who helped me with my first PC build.
  2. I have also heard that the Ryzen 5 1600 af is just like the Ryzen 5 2600 so could I use that as a cheaper alternative? I really don't know if this is true, so I would like some clarification. Thanks.
  3. I know some of the ryzen CPUs come with the wraith coolers so I was not planning on getting a CPU cooler. I don't think that I will be overclocking, mostly because I don't know much about it. But of I do decide to overclock, is it an easy upgrade? Are used CPUs any good? Finally, with the Ryzen 7 2700x or the 5 2600, what GPU would you recommend, the GTX 1660 Super or the RX 5600 xt?
  4. I haven't bought anything yet so I am open for suggestions for changes. How about a CPU to work with those, got any suggestions?
  5. Budget $800-900 (including currency): US Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Minecraft, Steam VR, Overwatch Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): currently I have MSI B450 Tomahawk Max, Corsair Veangence LPX 16 GB DDR4-3200, Western Digital 240 GB SSD, Seagate Barracuda 2TB Hard Drive, GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6 GB OC GPU, Phanteks Eclipse p400a digital case, and EVGA BR 80+ Bronze 500 W power supply. I want to know what CPU would work best with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super GPU? Anyone have suggestions for CPUs or other changes to the build?
  6. This is the final list that I have come up with. Quick question, does the Ryzen 3 3100 come with a CPU cooler or should I get one separately? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jMf8cq Please let me know if you recommend that I switch some things around. Thanks for all of the help.
  7. Is there anything else that anyone would recommend I change. I really want to get a good PC for my first build, but also budget friendly.
  8. Alright I think I got it here is the list of the parts now. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4nwWvW
  9. Alright so my build is good. Thank you so much for all of the help.
  10. Alright. I will add that. I dont need to put the operating system on that correct?
  11. Ok here is the edited list. I threw in the SSD instead of the Barracuda Compute, and the one thing I am most worried about is the quality of the graphics card. That was a cheap one and I am not sure if it lives up to the potential of the more expensive ones. I also got some additional fans for the case. Just to be clear, this build should work pretty well with VR gaming and I dont need any additional equipment right? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vnx3Gc
  12. Ok https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9B7LgJ
  13. I wasn't sure if I needed a new motherboard for the Ryzen 5 3600 so that I dont need to do BIOS updates, and I just don't know how to find a good graphics card that would work for what I want it to do. Currently I just have the EVGA GeForce GTX 1650 4 GB SC ULTRA GAMING Video Card. I also am not sure about the power supply. The estimated wattage said about 244W and i don't know if I am supposed to find a power supply close to that or above or under.
  14. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ I am still looking for a GPU. I want one that is cheap (maybe $200 and lower) but still effective for VR. I just put the cheapest one in my list. That probably isn't helpful.
  15. I am looking through the compatible parts and I dont see either of those. Should I get a different motherboard or a different processor? I don't know what to change to make one of the recommended GPUs to work
