Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming at 1080p 120fps on Apex Legends etc.

It's vewy pretty tho :(

 

Fine, I think I'll change the case as good airflow is important to me as I'm considering doing some overclocking.

 

That cuts about £35 off the total. I still need it to be about £20 less.

 

Thanks for the sugesstion, I really appreciate it

Cut off the case, like already said, to the P400A. You can even go to a P300A to save more, but it's out of stock everywhere. Then go to a MSI B450-A Pro Max to save the rest.

Get the Phanteks Eclipse P400A or 

Phanteks Eclipse P300A Mesh

 for the case, cheaper and much better airflow.

Maybe swap out your 5600xt for a cheaper 5600xt like the: 

You might also want a larger ssd (1TB).

 

Otherwise, very nice choice of parts and good luck building it.

 

I think I'll stick with a 500GB ssd since I have a PS4 and am probably getting a PS5 so a lot of my gaming will be over there.

The PC will mainly be used for Minecraft, Apex Legends, Valorant etc.

Thanks
