New build + screen choice


Hey Guys,


I'm looking to build a gaming PC for around a 1000 euros. I have the following components:


MSI B450-A Pro Processor

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3,4GHZ 

MSI Geforce GTX 1060 ARMOR 6G
8GB DDR4 G.Skill 3000Mhz
Kingston A400 SSD 240GB
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Sharkoon TG5 RGB

Corsair CX450M


Should I change something?

I'm also looking for a screen I'm doubting between two both are around 200 euros:


MSI optix MAG241C               or      aoc g2460pf

Curved/ 144hz /freesync                  Flat/ 144hz /freesync


I know you need a AMD graphics card if you want to use freesync. But is it really necessary to use freesync?

IMO curved looks bad on 16:9 screens. Only good on a large 21:9 screen. No, it is not necessary to use freesync. It only does stuff if you’re below 144 FPS, and is only noticeable significantly lower than 144. A 1060 might struggle a bit to do that (it will if you turn down some settings) but a 1070 is perfect. A 1070 also games at 1440p well
