Is a Ryzen 5 5600x good with a RTX 3060 Ti?

I'm going to buy my first gaming pc this year. I'm planning on buying a 5600x with a 3060 Ti. I probably won't upgrade this system for a couple years, so I want to buy a good pc right now. Just for curiosity, I will put my entire build in the attached files. If you have any tips for PSU, case, ram and others, please tell me.

it will be completley fine. Just swap that case out, has literally no airflow.

This. Besides that, looks fine. Not sure about how NZXT PSUs perform however

Do you have a suggestion for cases?

The NZXT C is a good quality PSU. A tier in the tier list

NZXT isn't know for their power supplies. I would recommend getting one from Corsair or EVGA. Also get one that is 600-650 Watts instead and save a couple bucks. Also the case is good for simple aesthetics, but it's that good otherwise, especially airflow. Also the 5600X comes with the wraith stealth cooler if you want to save another $45. I also assume you aren't just looking for the FE and are going to buy any 3060 Ti you can get right? Because otherwise you could be waiting a whole year for a GPU. 

Fuck you scalpers, fuck you scammers, fuck all of you jerks that charge way too much to tech-illiterate people. 

Unless I say I am speaking from experience or can confirm my expertise, assume it is an educated guess.

Current setup: Ryzen 5 3600, MSI MPG B550, 2x8GB DDR4-3200, RX 5600 XT (+105 core, +330 Mem), 1TB WD SN550, 2TB Seagate Barracuda Compute, Corsair 4000D Airflow, 650W 80+ Bronze. Razer peripherals. Also a 500GB 2.5" HDD I found. 

Also have a Alienware Alpha R1: i3-4170T, GTX 860M (basically a 750 Ti). 2x4GB DDR3L-1600

I saw the Austin Evans' 2021 build on his channel. He used the same case and psu that I put in this build. But knowing youtubers, it probably isn't that great.

You'll get a lot better thermal performance with a different cooler than stock. They're free for a reason

Once again, the NZXT C is a good PSU. Just because they aren't Corsair or EVGA doesn't mean they make bad PSUS. I mean look at Antec, they make some great PSUS.

The stock cooler is fine.

 

TO SUMMARIZE -
The build looks fine, just change the case too a P360A https://pcpartpicker.com/product/YNdrxr/phanteks-eclipse-p360a-atx-mid-tower-case-ph-ec360atg_dwt

Mhm, it really isn't a good case. Would really only consider it if you liked the aesthetics enough and were running a good enough AIO or custom loop. Personally, I'd recommend the Lancool II Mesh if you're willing to adjust fan curves, since airflow cases are far better for air cooling if you're willing to mess with the fan curves

Actually, I was looking for the FE. Asus and Gigabyte are my options if I don't buy the FE.

that's $50 more than the original one he picked. Any decent airflow case should be fine

Literally buy anything you can get at a reasonable price. Unless you are that damn patient and can go months without this new computer.

FE is objectively the worse (if we exclude blower cards, but those serve a different purpose). However, the performance difference will be minimal between other cards unless you want to overclock, so if you like the aesthetics of the FE card enough and don't really care about overclocking it's a perfectly fine choice

I could find many articles saying if the 5600x stock cooler was good, so I put this Cooler Master one because I saw good reviews of it.

$20 more without RGB, but regardless, a fair point

Yeah, cases are the part that have a lot of options. So, I will probably pick the least expensive one when I buy.

I'm doing this build but I will probably just buy it in the end of the year. I'm targeting the PS5 first.

I won't overclock anything in this pc. I'm scared of doing something wrong and damage my computer.
