i want to build a new computer for gaming other work(word documents, compiling code, editing pictures and audio)

here are the parts i have on my list currently
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600

RAM: 2x Apacer panther 8GB 2666MHz

motherboard: Gigabyte b450m ds3h

GPU: sapphire rx 580 4GB(i dont think i need 8GB for 1080P monitor)

power supply: LC power lc6650GP4(650W, 80+ gold)

SSD: WD 250GB blue m.2

hard drive: WD blue 7200 RPM 1TB

DVD reader(beacuse windows is cheaper on DVD than USB):Asus drw-24d5mt

So to your CPU: it's a good pick for an PC and also enough for gaming and all stuff but i would also recommend you to buy a good cooler for another 40€ or else. (Stock Cooler is enough btw, but when you're rendering a video your cpu can get quite hot)

RAM: 8GB in Dual Channel is good for Ryzen and 2666MHz is enough.

Mainboard: It is not the worst mainboard but a friend of me has the same mainboard and he is unhappy with it. So i would rather buy something else in ATX or mATX.

GPU: the 4GB is enough but the 8GB version is (i think so) like 20$ more so i would rather buy the 8GB version.

Power Supply: It's an overkill for your PC so like a 500W PSU is still enough for that build. With the saved up money you could buy a better mainboard or else.

SSD: good.

HDD: also good

DVD: if you have access to a pc i would rather download Win to a 8GB Stick and then buy a Product Key from eBay for 6$ its way cheaper than buying an extra DVD Reader:

 

Last is your Case: you didn't say anything about your case. The Case is your own choise but look for something that has good Airflow for your whole system.

 

Good Luck for your build

Take a Case you really like even if it's a more expensive. I did the same mistake and just chose one Case. Now I wanna upgrade my Case and it also costs a lot of money. So my personal tip is to buy a case you really like for a long time to not upgrade your case months later

If you really dont care about RGB and stuff i recommend you a basic case like Fractal Design Meshify C TG

Maybe an MSI Radeon RX 570 8GB or Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 8GB. Watch for websites where you can compare the price of different websites.

for the Power supply theAntec EarthWatts 550watt 80+ gold looks interesting

I got the bequiet Pure Power 10 500W +80 Silver

 

I also forgot to tell you something important with your Motherboard. Look at the Box or the Specs that it is Ryzen 2000 ready. Mainboards like the one you've chosen need an BIOS Update to support the Ryzen 2000 series. For Updating your Bios you need a Ryzen 1000 Series and then update the bios via USB, so that can be difficult for someone who is new and doesnt know someone who can borrow his Ryzen 1000 cpu

Just gonna say here, you can just use Microsofts own tool on another PC to make a bootable USB, then install Windows on the new PC without a license key, then just do what I did, go on ebay, and buy like a $10 key, I havent had any issues with ebay keys yet (however I would be cautious about being scammed).

(Ebay keys arent the best option, but if you have a budget, it works)
