Capable of going against a console

Hello, I was wondering if the pc I compiled is good enough to go against the ps4 or Xbox one. If it’s not please leave a pcpartpicker list. If it is is there any way to make it better. Criticism is allowed and will be appreciated.

Tbh The G4560 is pretty good at stock already. If you leave that as is, you can save quite a bit of money by getting a cheaper motherboard and using the stock fan. The motherboard I chose will require a bios update, but that's fairly straight forward.




The only issue is, if you're trying to convince a friend who currently plays on console to switch over to PC, a $550ish PC probably won't do it, simply because it's a more expensive upfront cost compared a $200 Xbox One, $300 Switch, etc. etc.
