Seems to be a reasonable build. Don't pay much more for the 3600XT than the 3600X. If the cost difference is substantial just get the 3600X. XT isn't worth it unless it's like the same price, so you might as well. You don't need 750W, so if you can save some cash by going for a 650W, do that. Try to get B550, if you can and the cost difference isn't huge. Paying a little more would be worth it.

Okay, thank you. :D

its best to wait for zen 3 and nvidia ampere.

 

but some suggestions for your current list:

- get the regular 3600 and get an overclock on it, it will perform similarly to the 3600x at less the price

- maybe change the ssd and get a 1tb one like a crucial p1/kingston a2000 or if you want something faster then a sx8200 pro, sn750, ex950 would do.

- a 550/650 watt PSU would work fine

september is when new AMD zen3 cpus and new nvidia 3000 series gpus come out, so its best to wait till then.

1. no point in getting a 3600xt, could just go for 3600 or 3600x instead and use the extra money somewhere else.

2. faster 3600mhz memory would do you better

3. a faster HDD at 7200RPM would also be better,

4. get a higher capacity SSD

5. that psu is overkill, maybe reduce the wattage

 

you can use the extra savings from the psu and cpu and get something like a 3700x or a larger SSD

What are you going to store on that HDD? If it's just documents then it's fine, but if it's games I'd recommend a 7200RPM drive


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / Dell P2210 1680x1050 @ 70Hz (OC)

1. A larger ssd so you can fit all your games and editing software on there. Also a 7200rpm hard drive would be beneficial.

2. Cheaper 2070 supers are out there which perform basically the same.

3. B550 mobo if you want to use pcie gen 4 down the line or upgrade to later ryzen generations.

4. 650w psu will be fine

5. A 3700x is only about 20$ more than the 3600xt but has more cores and threads - will be better for editing. If you want to save some money and sacrafise a bit of performance then you could use a 3600 and overclock it (they are about $180)

If you want you could get some 3600mhz ram but it will only increase performance a little bit.

Unfortunately that is over my budget, I am looking for a 55k thb build (1700 usd). I live in thailand I can't use services like amazon or newegg as it would cost me up to 10k thb for delivery/shipping.

After checking the prices and making some tweaks, it looks like the ssd/hdd is making me go over budget. They don't sell 4 TB 7200 rpm drives other than WD black which are quite expensive. Do you suggest I get multiple hard drives of smaller sizes or ditch the HDD and just go for multiple m.2 drives?

 

The 3700x is also 90 dollars more than the 3600x in Thailand.
