How would I make this build perfect?

Is there a way to improve this build without changing monitor, case, or Radeon graphics for the Freesync feature?

In addition, why do Ryzen CPUs need dual channel RAM to perform well? 

If possible is there a way to cut cost?

Never heard of that SSD brand before.

Why the CD/DVD writer

PSU is way overkill

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

Does the brand of ssd matter? I've been trying to find ways to cut costs, but does ssd quality matter much in the grand scheme of things?

If I ever need to put a cd in for whatever reason, just a utility feature.

 

I'm not very experienced, so if there are any concerns, let me know.

I think the Ryzen 5 come with a good cpu cooler, so you can get rid of the 3rd party cooler.

You definitley don't need an optical drive if you haven't needed one more than once in the past 2 months.

You can defintley go for a cheaper motherboard as well, a b450 should be cheaper

The ssd is fine, but if you can shell out for a more reputable and common brand like Samsung, Crucial etc.it would be safer in the long run for warranty reasons.

Buy from a reliable brand unless you want to lose all your data.

 

Pretty pointless. Remove and spend saved money on better SSD.

 

Get a Corsair CX 550M

2600 comes with a Wraith Stealth, not a Wraith Spire. A 3rd party cooler is required for OC'ing.

Don't bother with the Hyper T2. Use the stock cooler unless you want to overclock. In which case consider something like the Cryorig H7.

 

Consider a B450 motherboard.

 

The chosen memory makes no sense and will perform poorly.

 

The system doesn't need a psu anywhere near 750W. A 550W unit is more than enough.

 

I'd suggest a slightly less expensive fan.

the fan is barely any more. if 20$ can get me better performance for OC, then why not? I hear you on the motherboard. Is the memory choice fine?

Check out @brob's parts list. Much better and for not much more $$$

The Hyper T2 is arguably no better than the stock cooler.

would cryorig C7 work as well? how does memory not make sense exactly?

The memory is absolutely fine, with regards to overclocking, I would recommend waiting until you get a bit more experience with building a PC and then by all means go for it, for now though the stock cooler will be perfect.

The C7 is a low profile cooler that would provide a negligible difference in temps.

Ok, I've updated a few things. Is this better?

No, if the H7 is not available consider something like the Noctua NH-U12S or NH-U9S.

 

When I looked at the original list there were two memory kits. A 2x4 DDR4-2400 and a 1x16 DDR4-2133. This would have forced memory to run at DDR4-2133. Using a DDR4-2400 kit is sub optimal. Ryzen cpu prefer faster memory since the memory controller is rated for DDR4-2933.

I have fixed a few things. Maybe I'll go for overclocking later, but right now my expectations are pretty low.

Here is the new build.

to get the most out ryzen the higher MHz the better, the recommended is 3000. If you can, definitley go for it, you'll be getting your monies worth.

LIke others have said, the cooler you originally chose is not significantly better than the stock one. But I would forgo oc for now, I don't know your experience with oc, I am assuming you are new. I'd do a lot more research on the subject before spending money, just my advice.

I don't feel like OC will be that hard to get into, I just need some experience with things. I feel like this is approaching a good build. What do you think would be a bottleneck down the road?

I'm not a fan of the psu, but it is a good unit. Other than that, the build looks good.

 

Do you have a particular need for an optical drive?

Just cheap as possible while being functional. 

 

How could the psu be better? Out of curiosity, what are the most subjective parts of a build? (GPU, CPU, PSU, etc)

It's all subjective.

 

I was asking if you need the optical drive. Most modern builds do not.

That's just a little bit expensive for my budget and needs, but thank you. If you have an idea of where to get $900 from thin air, I would like to hear it.
