I already have this list created and I want tips on changes i could/should make. Hoping to use all 700$ of the budget. No gpu or integrated graphics needed as I have a placeholder 1060 3gb to use until i can get a 3000 series card.

-Consider a 5600x and a B550 board

-Change the case, it’s really bad.

-Not sure how good PowerSpec PSUS are. Maybe consider something else?
