Medium isn't a quantifiable number. You need to give a budget.

As for your build:

  • Usually the X isn't worth the extra cost, just get the 3600, spend the difference elsewhere
  • Get a 1TB SSD, and get an HDD later
  • Get a better PSU; consult the LTT PSU Tier List for advice
  • I'd invest in a cooler

I'd hold off on the cooler if budget is a major concern. Stick with the stock cooler and if things get too loud then look at investing in another cooler. I know the X has a better cooler over the 3600 but yes, if the non-X is $20 or more cheaper then go with that.

The X's cooler isn't good enough to warrant the extra $20.
