Is this a PC you are looking at building or are these the specs of a prebuilt system you are considering buying?

 

What is your overall budget?

 

What are your goals (IE what do you want to do with the PC)?

 

 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

This should be a way better build

Amd is the better choice here with their cpu price cuts, now making it a great value pick 

Cheap cooler to help with temps 

Decent cheap board 

16gb of 3600 ram

1tb storage

6600 which is going to be way better than a 6500xt

Better case and a 650 watt psu. It's only platinum because it's cheaper than most other 650 watt psus

Any reason for that? The closest new nvidia gpu to your budget is the 3050 and loses easily to the 6600 in gaming performance. The 5600 also isn't too far off the 12400f in perfromance, at least not enough to rule it out

@Ryuikko's suggestion is a far far superior build. Ryzen 5 5600 is a significant step up from the i3-12100F and the RX 6600 murders the RX 6500 XT. Only half decent gpus $250 and below from Nvidia you can get new are the GTX 1660 Super (~$210) and the RTX 2060 (~$230). If you have to go Nvidia the 2060 is by far the best card you can buy new for less than the 3060 (~$370, a horrifically bad price for the card). Both the 1660 Super and 2060 are significantly weaker than the RX 6600 though.

 

EDIT: I should add it's a better build if and only if that board supports updating the BIOS without a cpu in it. I know a lot of Asus boards support doing that. Not sure how universal it is on Gigabyte boards though.

Hell the RTX 3050 loses soundly to the $50 cheaper RTX 2060. Who the hell is stupid enough to be buying RTX 3050 at these prices? 🤣  Though even at the $250 MSRP the RTX 3050 would still be a horrible buy vs the RTX 2060 priced at $250.

No. No reason to spend $190 on a board for an i3. In that budget you could fit in either a Ryzen 5 5600 or an i5-12400F, either of which is a big upgrade over the i3-12100F, with a cheaper board.

Quite an emphasis on used here

 

Good used b3/450 x3/470 go sub 60$ like b450 pro4 which will be far better than a lowend garbage b550 board like b550m hdv

 

Theres alot of <350$ rx 6700 xt floating around on ebay so look at snagging one of those

 

Cases are unimportant and only serve the purpose of housing and protecting the components, dont spend >20$ on a case, if you get a decent office case like linus did in his 500$ gaming pc vid take off the sidepanel for temp reasons, if you get an older case but decent airflow then thatd be ideal

 

FAR FAR better performance than a new build for the same price
