Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

like the other two people said, how much do you want to spend on the cpu? And bottlenecking varies based on your settings in the game your playing. That means you can lower bottlenecking or higher it based on if the game is cpu or gpu bound, and what the settings are.

9700K or 8700K would be my recommendations.
