go to www.pcpartpicker.com and build a list.  it'll be a lot easier to read.

 

Anyways first thoughts:

Get a better screen, you can do much better than 75hz.

I'd look at a 12400f with a B660 over a 3600 any day of the week.


Are you near a Microcenter?

Their Como deals are great. They have the ryzen 5600 for $150 plus $20 off of a motherboard if purchased together.

 

The price on that 3060 is too high. I would consider a 6600xt. Microcenter has them as low as $390. Or the 6700xt for under $500.

Filter by 'open box' for some sweet deals.  Almost all of them are just scalpers returning shit they never sold so it's just discount new.  You can still return it and register it for warranty.  I've seen 6700xt for under $500 and 6800xt for under $650.  You can even get a 3070ti for like $650.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

Unless I missed something, there's no case. And depending, you may want to invest in at least a couple more fans.

 

If you did indeed overlook the case, you might look at the Corsair 4000 / 5000 / 7000 series. Either include 3 front-mount fans. X or D is fine for a 3600, but you might want to opt for the D Airflow if a Zen3 is in your future plans. A more compact and budget-minded model is the 220T. I would recommend a Corsair iCUE Commander as well with these cases.

Nice choice on the board, I used that one myself for a 5900X build. However, you may want to consider the Asus TUF B550-PRO for some cases. It has a USB 3.2 Gen 2 header for cases with 3.2 front panel I/O, where the PLUS does not. One of those woulda-coulda-shouldas on my build, but I didn't catch it until I was nearly done.

Revised, more info

OP: My PC cuts off and crashes. Is the 1000W PSU enough?  ME: 1000W is plenty, PSU or system board could be faulty. Get both tested.

OP: I don't think so, both parts were purchased last week.        😒  Why bother asking if you second-guess the advice?
