I'm second guessing my first build.

Budget (including currency): 1450 

Country: usa

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Rainbow Six Siege, Fortnite, COD, etc... 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

This is my first build. Everything is running fine I'm just looking for confirmation on whether my build is good or not.

Ryzen 5 5600x

Tuf X570-Plus

1 TB 970 EVO M.2 SSD

32 GB 3600 

RX 6650 XT 

Mag Cooler 240 mm AIO

EVGA 650 WT

H510 Flow 

Edit: I have my build hooked up to dual Samsung Odyssey G5 1440p monitors. I get over 250 FPS on RSS and over 150 on Fortnite but idk if this is considered good.

You want confirmation as in you already have the parts? I'm not sure what you want to hear if that's the case

Yes it would help me second guessing myself

Well I mean there's nothing "wrong" with it, I just wouldn't personally choose those parts

What about it would you have chosen to do differently?

For 1450 usd and for your used I would've done something like this

Not that it particularly matters anymore though

😄😄😂

 

I would have chosen an air tower. Something like the Deepcool AK500.

 

I don't believe EVGA has a 650 WT model. The company has 650W models that range from excellent down to dangerous. So the actual model matters.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

It's an ok rig, a 12th gen Intel will have performed marginally better but cost more due to the expensive boards

@brob is referring to the "650 W", the W pertaining to their "white" series (among other models such as the W1 and the W5)

 

I'm gonna guess you went with the G5 or something? That's one of their most common models for a price range like this.

 

The TUF motherboard is quite good, you got it for a decent price? It's one of the more budget friendly X570 boards of great quality.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GBHP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

How many watts do I needATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Oh sure it's good, i think what @Ryuikkowas getting at is that what's the point of a nice motherboard when you're using a 6650XT instead of a 3080.

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".

If it were me, it would probably be to secure a nice upgrade path. In a couple years, a 5900X will probably not be that expensive on the used market, and then something like an RTX 4090 would go nicely.
