i5 9400f isnt that good. it has 2 less threads than 3100 and 3300x. modern games utilize aorund 8 or more threds, i5 9400f doesnt have 8 threads.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

the problem with that build is the ram, the storage and the dodgy power supply. additioinally, that storage wont be enough even for a single AAA game. like normally you can only use 100gb of 120gb for longevity reasons. and about 30-40gb of that will be occupied by windows and its bloatwares. only 60 gb will be left for you but that will also include the random stuff such as chrome, antivirus and stuff

 

additionally, the B450 means that you can upgrade to the future ryzen 4000 series which will be a good upgrade path .

Yup. and the PSU as well. idk what PSU you chose but that being at that price could not be good and might risk something like component failure or even worse, fire. Additionally, 16gb of ram is recommended as many of the AAA games consume more than 8gb of ram. and remember, windows 10 usually consume something like 2gb as dedicated for the system. 

 

personal experience, when playing Ghost Recon, my ram usage hovers between 10-11gb,
