My first build - advice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys


I'm pretty new to PC-building and I want to upgrade from my "gaming" laptop to a desktop.

I was planning on using these parts, but I have no idea if they go together or not. Can you give me some advice if this system will even work?

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • ASUS TUF gaming X570-plus
  • Samsung 970 EVO 1TB
  • Corsair RM650X
  • Corsair 110R

My budget is about €1300+-50 and I live in Belgium.

The pc's main purpose will be for gaming, I also might be doing some photoshop or programming (but this as a hobby).

I only need 1 monitor but with the possibility of adding max 2 more.

I don't need any peripherals as I already have them.

At that price point, you can go for a 3700x and a 2070s but you might want to get rid of the "pretty" such as rgb ram and such.




CPU             Ryzen 5 3600 (Formerly Ryzen 3 1200)

GPU             : ASUS RX 580 Dual OC (Formerly ASUS GTX 1060 but it got corroded for some odd reasons)

GPU COOOER      : ID Cooling Frostflow 120 VGA (Stock cooler overheats even when undervolted :()

MOBO            : MSI B350m Bazooka

MEMORY          Team Group Elite TUF DDR4 3200 Mhz CL 16
STORAGE         : Seagate Baracudda 1TB and Kingston SSD
PSU             : Thermaltake Lite power 550W (Gonna change soon as i dont trust this)

Since you're doing photoshop and programming as a hobby a 3600 is enough.


The MSI B450 A-Pro Max supports 3000 serie out of the box.


The price of the Samsung NVMe is ridiculous and for -0.2s to load a game it's not worth it at all.


A 2070S could be better but seeing the price, you should keep the 5700XT. 150€ difference is not worth the 10FPS you'll gain in average.

Hey @MartinKweh thanks for the advice, will the GPU, CPU and motherboard work together though?

Yes but the motherboard is unnecessary and the GPU is bad value.

@Meganter, any suggestion for another GTX 2060?

The rx5700xt he included in the build is much better than the 2060.

If you want nvidia, go for a 2060 super or 2070, which should be the same price as the 5700xt, but slower
