I just saw the response and don't understand a couple of things:
1. I don't understand why you chose that motherboard. Could you explain? To me it looks like you're giving me more PCIE slots that I won't use, another M.2 slot that I won't use and 2 more PCI slots that I won't use. What's the reason for choosing this motherboard?
2. You chose slower RAM with less Mhz and CL and I read that Ryzen is heavily dependant on fast RAM which is why I do not want to go below CL14 and 3200 Mhz.
3. The AMD GPU you chose definitely is slower than what I had and people were not sure if I could run Witcher 3 properly so I will not go with the AMD card as I have now went with a 2080 Super.
4. I went with your case but it would be good to understand why mine wasn't a good choice.
I do not have a budget, I would buy a 2080 Ti if someone here told me that I need it to play Witcher 3 on max settings at 1440p. I mostly took the items you recommended but added RAM for the sake of filling all 4 RAM slots on the motherboard. I sticked with 3200Mhz CL14. I changed the SSD guessing that this is better. Please let me know your input on this.
The MSI board has a much better VRM than the ASRock one. You might be fine with a 3600 on the ASRock, but anything higher core (3700x for example) will cause issues, so it limits your upgrade path. If the VRM overheats then the cpu is going to throttle.
Faster speed ram doesn't mean it is better. You still need to look at the timings. A 3200 CL14 kit for example would be better than a 3600 CL19. The CL14 Ram is usually more expensive though, like the Flare X in your list. You can also easily overclock ram with the ryzen dram calculator so no need to overspend on it.
I chose the 5700XT because you had a 2070 Super in your build. Of course if you can afford a stronger gpu then sure go with a 2080 Super.
Cheap cases like the CiT are just really bad to build in, and the actual build quality/QA can be bad. Don't forget a case can last you a couple of builds if it is good quality. If you have a good budget then stick with a reputable brand like Fractal, Phanteks, Corsair, NZXT, Lian-Li or Cooler Master etc.
