Sometimes I feel like people are trolling with these kinds of questions and configurations. Yes, this would be more than enough for 1080p gaming. Although see compatibility notes below

Compatibility Notes

  • Note:The Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it.
  • Note:Some physical dimension restrictions cannot (yet) be automatically checked, such as cpu cooler / RAM clearance with modules using tall heat spreaders.

 

 


Be patient.

Just because a new product has come out, it doesn't mean that your thing is suddenly performing worse than it was when you bought it.

It's pretty decent, bit I'd recommend getting a bigger size monitor if you have enough spacefor it. As well as a higher hertz like 144hz. Since you're deciding to buy a good gpu like the rx5600. Also get more storage cause trust me, that shit will burn. If you don't wanna go over the amount now then id recommend you cutting down on mobo and/or gpu.

 

Good Luck,

 

Joel

You could just buy the 1TB 970 Evo for $168. Similar in price but you get more storage and on the one drive instead of two.

Not sure how the XFX performs but I've seen good reviews for the Sapphire Pulse 5600 XT so I would recommend that. It's also $5 cheaper.

Use the included CPU cooler that comes with the Ryzen 5 3600X? :S

You could save money with a B450 board (just make sure it's compatible with Ryzen 3000 series CPUs out of the box)

The MSI Tomahawk MAX B450 for example is compatible, and is $70 cheaper.

If you don't care about it being semi-modular (which you shouldn't since you will end up using most if not all of the cables anyway) the CX550 (non modular) is a better PSU.

 

 

With those changes you save around $100, which then gives you plenty of room in the budget to fit in a 1080p 144hz Freesync monitor. (I just chose a monitor at random to fill in the price, have a look around see what 1080p 144hz Freesync monitors are good)

You should buy cooler master MA410M instead of amd cooler.Cooler master MA410M is also good for overclocking and buy a 600 watt PSU

thanks, i just put in that cooler so it would measure the dimensions. everything else is great advice tho :)
