Hello everyone, i am building a new gaming PC as my old one is almost 10 years old. It is hard to find parts where i live and i know the parts i've picked are not ideal. But i would like to know your thoughts on the build and what you would change. Maybe i will be able to find the parts that you suggest :) . Thanks in advance!

MOBO: MSI B350 PC Mate
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
CASE: Cooler Master Masterbox 5 Lite
Storage: WD Blue 1 TB
SSD: PNY 240 GB SATA III
MEM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 2400Mhz
PSU: EVGA B3 550W 80+ Bronze

Hmm, i was thinking about the B3 because i get a 5 year warranty from the producer, while if i get a CX i will get 1 year warranty from my local seller.

the Corsair CX550M, EVGA B3 550W and the Seasonic M12II-520 Evo 80+ BRONZE have the same price.

anything for slightly more? the CX will be the best out of the lot.

I live in Albania, this will cost me around 830 Euros, which is 975 USD. I think you're feeling pretty good :P

Without the card or with? If without thats pretty expensive i agree but if not then not bad i guess, probably at the same level of expensiveness as my country (not a proper word)

Without the card :). You should see some other stores in my country selling PCs with GTX 1050 for 1800 euros lul.

Oh shit lol... in that case i think you should try https://www.bhphotovideo.com i buy some parts there if theyre too expensive in my country. It boggles me that a foreign us website is cheaper even after shipping costs.

Thank you for the help and sorry for the late reply, much appreciated! For some reason, the Vengeance 550m is cheaper than the other PSUs.
