I don't really mean to be rude your build is a bit weird.

You have overspent on a lot of parts that does not affect performance. 

 

- Cheaper case, There are a lot of cheaper cases that are better than H510 (NZXT cases has terrible airflow). 

I built a budget PC for my nephew using Phantek P300 and while it may not have the best airflow it is a lot cheaper but still has good quality. 

 

- Cheaper RAM, Rly ? RGB RAM when you are on a tight budget ? rly?!?!?)

i5 10400F with B460 does not support more than 2666mhz (get the cheapest ram you can find from a reputable brand)

 

- Cheaper Cooler, I would go for a simple 120mm air-cooler like BQ Pure Rock 2 or similar.

Or you could use Intel stock cooler, it is terrible but works. 

 

- Cheaper PSU, If you are on a budget you could get a CX650F

RM750x is a great PSU and it would be great if you plan to reuse it for future builds but it is also expensive. 

 

Also...

The 10400F is a good budget CPU but 11400F with a B560 board is a lot better (11400F with B560 supports XMP RAM like 3200/3600mhz).

Ryzen 3600 is also a great budget CPU. 

 

But prices all depends on where you live and where you buy your components.

~870$ to spend on a gpu

 

Ditched the aio for a cheap tower cooler

Swapped the b460 for a cheap b560

Ditched the overpriced rgb ram for cheap 3200mhz cl16 rams

Ditched the outdated and overpriced 970 evo for a crucial p5 ssd

Ditched the garbage nzxt case for a cheap case with 4 rgb fans preinstalled

Swapped the 750w rmx for a cheaper 750w thermaltake psu

 

Heres an rgb pc with a good price, so it is a performance focused build, too much overpriced and uneccesary crap like rgb rams, aios, etc. Will basically eat all your budget and you are left with a disco ball from the late 70s and performs like a pc from the late 70s

Yeah so your build had a good idea but wasn't that balanced. So I'd rather stick to one of the suggested ones or a combo of those. You'll have a way faster PC that way and more fun in games. Also R6 isn't the most demanding game, but I'd aim at something a bit better then the 1660Super. You have the budget for it, so why not go for more FPS?

27 inch monitors are the sweet spot in price right now, maybe try this one first because I own a 31,5 inch and I need a bit of space between me and the monitor, not really great for competitive gaming.

Great CPU

You can get a cheaper cooler, maybe the arctic liquid freezer II 240mm A-RGB?

Good Ram, and also solid storage solution

The 6600XT is a good fit, you can enable direct storage on it and get a few FPS more out of the all AMD System.

 

A waay better PC, I'd go for that!

You mean resizable bar (smart access memory)? Well he can also enable direct storage with Windows 11 but no games use that yet..

Anyway, yeah I agree 6600 XT is much better than a 1660. Maybe add a Kingston A2000 1TB NVMe, I think it's the cheapest 1TB NVMe (that I know).

I wouldn't change the NVMe honestly. The Crucial P5 is a great SSD with Cache and the A2000 lacks that, that means it has lower speeds and a lesser lifespan. Also when you boot of a drive, a SSD with cache will write quite a few frequent operations in that cache, so the nand-flash wont get accessed and read as often. This prolongs the lifespan and keeps the system "snappier"

well in ur case,my advice switch that cooler with noctua nh-d15, and with those 50 you spare take 3600mhz CL16 memory and a 750 psu or a better mobo/ bigger SSD.

noctua nh-d15 will outperform the 240 aio.
when you get it, if you are new at overclock just get on ryzen master on basic settings then do manual OC, and set  1.281 V then try 4.7ghz if not stable down to 4.6 its the sweet spot of ryzen 7 5800x (mine got 4.7, my cousin 4.6) will increase a bit the performance, lower temps and lower power draw.

You wont even notice the "slower" speed. Also it does have DRAM cache btw.
