Budget (Trying to keep it medium 😞 

Country: UK

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: New Games

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

Parts such as the ssd, hard drive and power supply is what i currently have and use looking to swap the power supply if i have too and wanted to check if the mother board was alright would't mind any other recommendation such as Ram.

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.
