Guide

Great AMD Gaming/Streaming Build

Description

Introduction

This PC is designed to deliver high performance on all of today's most popular games without being complicated to build or costing too much. It will run well at high settings on 1080p or higher when playing Fortnite, Minecraft, Call of Duty, Rainbow Six Siege, Apex Legends, PUBG, and more.

CPU

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 provides some of the best bang for your buck. It offers 6 cores, 12 threads, a base frequency of 3.6GHz, and a turbo frequency of 4.2GHz.

This CPU includes a stock cooler, so no additional CPU cooler is required for this build.

If you'd prefer to consider a similar build, but instead using an Intel processor, be sure to check out our Great Intel Gaming Build Guide.

Motherboard

We're using a parametric filter to constantly select the best-priced motherboard while meeting selected criteria. In this case, we are filtering for ATX X570 chipsets and up to 4 DDR4 DIMM slots for future expansion. The compatibility engine will filter out anything not compatible with the build, and it will automatically update with the best priced option as prices change.

The X570 chipset was selected rather than the B450 chipset in order to bypass any BIOS update issues that would occur when combining a new Ryzen 3000 series (Zen 2) CPU with a B450 chipset. However, you are welcome to explore those options as well, but be forewarned that because it uses an older chipset, this motherboard may require a BIOS update before it will be compatible with the CPU. The manufacturer may have already updated the B450 BIOS before sending it to retailers, but if not, many motherboards cannot be updated without using an older CPU to do so.

If the motherboard is not updated, the PC is unlikely to boot at all with the new CPU. In this case, you would need to temporarily use an older CPU to update the motherboard BIOS before using a new CPU with it. The CPUs that could do this update would be the Ryzen 1000 CPUs, Ryzen 2000 APUs, and Ryzen 2000 CPUs.

If you stick with the X570 chipset on original part list provided, you will not have to deal with this process.

Memory

We are filtering for a 2x16GB kit of DDR4 RAM with a speed of at least DDR4-3600 and a CAS latency of 19 or lower, as Ryzen CPUs scale well with faster memory.

Storage

Solid State Drives (SSDs) are considerably faster than old mechanical drives. With an SSD, the PC will boot, open programs, and load games way faster.

Since storage needs may differ, adjust the capacity as needed. We recommend at least 500 GB of SSD storage. 1TB typically provides the most optimal storage capacity for the price. We're use parametric filters to incorporate an SSD with at least 960GB of space.

GPU

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is one of the best price for performance cards on the market. The RX 5700 XT will provide a consistent 60fps on many demanding games like PUBG at Ultra at 1080p, and even 1440p for some games like Apex Legends. It'll also handle Fortnite with zero issues. For those interested in VR, this card will have no problem playing any and and all applications currently on the market.

To keep the noise and temperatures down, the filter requires a minimum length to avoid "mini" versions of the card, which prioritize fitting into small builds, such as an ITX case. It also requires a minimum number of 2 fans to avoid "blower" style cards, which usually do not cool the card as well. You can choose to use this filter instead, if you want to include the smaller cards for any reason. Note that smaller cards will be louder or hotter - or both.

Case

All of our parts are on display in the NZXT H510 mid tower case. This case features a clean design and a tempered glass window. It includes 1x USB-C port and 1x front panel USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, as well as a PSU shroud and a number of cable management holes and tie-offs to help your build look cleaner. It can also fit full-sized video cards.

PSU

For our power supply, we're using a parametric selection of well-reviewed semi or fully modular units, all of which are 80+ Gold certified or above and can provide plenty of power for this build.

I’m sorry there’s so much flak about the time, effort and research spent to have folks rip into you. I look at the comments and take the posts as comments for what they are: advice. Folks like me want the best option bang for buck like most working class, we can always find great advice here. Thanks for your effort. I hope you didn’t take any of the comments as negative, digs or not. We appreciate you doing what you do.

I recommend changing the ssd to one with dram cache. Dram cache is needed for longevity so i am recomending switching it out for a crucial mx500 500gb with a 1-2tb hdd. Disclaimer I didnt do extensive reasearch on ur ssd but if it doesnt have a dram cache i'm recommending changing it up.

what about not including an OS in the price?

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Usually people don't include the OS price because all that is left out when not using an activation key is the personalization (wallpaper, colors, themes). You can just buy a key later anyway, which allows you more headroom in your budget (the amount you have on hand at the very time of purchasing parts) so as to squeeze out as much performance as possible.

They mentioned above that they went with nvidia because it's a streaming PC build, and Nvidia's NVENC hardware encoder is drastically superior than anything AMD offers. (Not being biased, the NVENC encoder is actually super impressive in the RTX cards) It's capable of offloading the entire stream encoding without any performance decrease, and at a quality similar to, or better than software encoding with your CPU at x264's fast preset.

Did you write this 3 days ago as it says?? This would have made sense during Navi launch but for now It completely does not make sense. (I currently use NVIDIA GPU so dont say im an amd fan boy, neither am I Nvidia's) 1) Yes AMD Had/at times still have driver issues but they are doing good currently 2) Tons of power?? have you checked Navi Power consumption or you are just relying on past Radeon track-record in reference to power consumption. 3) Custom 5700 and XT cards are available already.

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

You are correct, just gonna put that out there. (1) i am not currently using an AMD card so i don't know the current state of their drivers (i was just using my past knowledge). (2) "tons" of power was an exaggeration but it still does use more power than a 2060 super (225 watts for the 5700xt, and 175 for the 2060 super) it is a 50 watt difference (nearly a 30% increase in power draw). the question was why don't they add a 5700xt, they only really good option for custom 5700xt cards are in high demand which means they will cost more money which puts them over the price of the 2060 super and since they are high demand they are hard to find because everyone wants one. I love AMD's processors but im just saying if you want to do a 5700(xt) build i would wait for the prices to even out. If you have the money and the headroom for the tdp i would go for one. I was just trying to tell people why they had a 2060 super instead of a 5700xt.

Navi cards are the most efficient on the board when compared to RTX.

As far as I know the NAVI cards are on par with RTX lineup in terms of power consumption relative to performance. Having said that, as you said it can be hard to find the custom 5700s for a competitive price (especially in EU, this is why I ended up purchasing Nvidia).

Still wonder why the 5700 XT isn't listed here instead of the 2060 Super ? It's almost 20% faster at the same price ..

  • 4 months ago
  • 34 points

20% in a specific test is possible in some games at higher resolution but they often trade blows in games and at 1080p the difference is minimal. The 5700 XT consumes more power, produces more heat, and runs louder due to the lack of non-reference cards. When those new cards release next month we will re-evaluate the 5700 and 5700 XT for mainstream builds.

  • 2 months ago
  • 9 points

Actually, the 5700 XT performs closer to a 2070 Super, and this is proven in numerous YouTube videos showing gaming benchmarks. Also, userbenchmarks.com shows the 5700 XT performing 17% better than the 2060S. And lets face it, gamers are more concerned about performance than noise. Rather than getting a case that has mediocre air-flow, at best, spend an extra $5-15 for something like the Meshify C and the heat from the 5700 XT isn't as much of an issue. This build was poorly thought out for that price.

  • 4 months ago
  • 3 points

i do agree, but one thing you should take into consideration is radeon image sharpening, which is a lot more convenient than dlss while it arguably better in some ways. Also, the 5700xt comes with 3 months xbox live. You could save money by going with 5700 which trades blows with the 2060 super, and with the RIS,it would look better than the 2060 super despite the 2% fps drop

  • 4 months ago

Is the super really worth it over regular 2060? Seems like a ripoff to me especially since I'm seeing 2060s around $300 now. Every review I've watched people weren't impressed with super.

Because of the Streaming part of this build. I am an AMD guy. This is about OBS and .264 encoding. AMD AMF encoding is broken and has been for 4+ years. The NVIDIA NVENC and the latest OBS dropped CPU usage 40+% when streaming. AMD needs to get its stuff together here.

Would you not recommend AMD for streaming builds?

I'm building one for now for streaming purpose have 1000-1500$ budget.

  • 3 months ago
  • 9 points

I do believe he is talking about AMD GPUs, which don't have as good encoders which increases load on the CPU, an AMD CPU in a streaming build is great and provides better performance than Intel and your budget, but if you are looking to stream it makes sense to go with a NVIDIA GPU over a comparable AMD one.

  • 3 months ago

Thanks for answer! I was planning to go for AMD Ryzen 5 3600X or should go with 7 series with more cores?

I also don't play PC games with high graphics so GPU doesn't necessary to be best one. Definitely no need for 4k. Do you have some recommended build available somewhere that you can suggest?

I did put these parts together yesterday quickly https://pcpartpicker.com/user/rolelabad/saved/8jdwhM

If you're looking for good 1440p preformance, than you're definitely on the right track. Ryzen 5 3600x is a great choice and a cheap X570 motherboard would go great with it. I would get at least 3200mhz speed memory though, there are significant increases in Ryzen chip preformance with faster memory. You can get a 16gb kit of 3200 speed Ram for under $80 USD right now.

M.2 SSDs are great, but I would caution you against the premium ones. You can get around 500gb of M.2 SSD storage for $60. The more expensive Samsung or Adata ones do come with some speed advantages, but you pay a hefty premium for it, but either way you get a great SSD. Personally I don't think the premium is worth it, M.2 SSDs are fast regardless, but it's completely up to you.

For basic 1080p an RX 580 works just fine. If you want the absolute best performance at 1080p, go with a GTX 1660ti. If you want 1440p, consider an RTX 2060 or 2060 Super.

I did also notice you don't have a power supply. You want at least 80+ Bronze certified, and 80+ Gold if you can afford. Seasonic, EVGA, and Corsair are all excellent and very reliable brands.

Good luck!

I am not the best person to answer that question, I have very little experience streaming, but if you go to reddit.com/r/buildapc you should be able to ask questions like that to people who do know what they are talking about.

  • 1 month ago
  • 1 point

If your going to do some streaming than I recommend making two PC's one for streaming one for gaming and just split the price between them because if your budget like you said is £1500 then you can make two pretty decent Pcs for £750 each and this can help take off the work load for the first Pc it also means that you can make the Pc for the specific task.

  • 3 months ago

Yes. Do not use AMD GPUs for a streaming PC. Intel or AMD CPU is your choice. Do some research on OBS and Nvidia NVENC. NVENC uses a separate chip and software that does the h.264 encoding on the GPU. Otherwise the CPU must do that work. AMDs solution is called AMF and that software has been broken for 4+ years. Do more research on that. You can stream with AMD GPUs but your CPU will have 40%ish more load. We are all hoping AMD will finally fix AMF on the new cards. A 1650 is the cheapest GPU with full support.

90C is within range. 5700xt doesn't "run optimally" based on low temps. 5700xt is supposed to run around up to 110C.

  • 3 months ago
  • 3 points

Do note this is temp sensor shows the highest temp point on the card, compared to nvidia where the highest temperature point lacks a temp sensor. However, this does not excuse the 110c 'within limits' statement that AMD has given, simply to excuse their terrible reference cooler design(of which could be fixed by simply using thermal paste and more pressure instead of a thermal pad). This doesnt matter much anymore though as partner cards are out now which have excellent temperatures.

  • 3 months ago
  • 2 points

True, but it is duly noted that a better cooler can provide even more performance knowing that the gpu can still run at 110C. If a bad cooling unit can provide performance similar to rtx 2070, just imagine what a good cooling unit can do. lol.

youtubers have a bad habit of making somewhat difficult tasks look easy (like updating a previous bios) when in fact they are much more difficult to an average user. Unless you have an extra previous ryzen cpu lying around or are just upgrading an existing rig with a new zen 2 cpu, x570 is the way to go for now until b550 boards come out.

  • 4 months ago

This case features a tempered glass window.

That information is incorrect. The side panel for the 275R that was picked (CC-9011130-WW) is Acrylic, which scratches very easily. There is a tempered glass version that exists, but it costs about ~$85. The Cooler Master MasterBox NR600 (w/o ODD) is a better deal at ~$70 and has superior airflow.

For our memory, the parametric filter finds the best price on 16GB kits of memory that are within AMD’s recommended specifications. We've limited it to DDR4-3200 and faster speeds, as Ryzen CPUs scale well with higher frequency memory.

The CAS latency for the parametric filter should be set to 19 or lower. There are some kits like this one that have extremely bad timings.

update with 5700xt

  • 4 months ago
  • 3 points

Aside from the bios update likely needed with a b450 coupled with the new gen CPU, what differences are there between a b450 and an x570 in terms of data transfer, read/write speeds, bandwidth capabilities, etc.

I'm wanting to upgrade to the new gen ryzen cpu. I have a b450 msi tomahawk Mobo and I have confirmed that a R5, R7, or R9 will be compatible otherwise...

The bottom line is obviously that I want more speed/power and don't really see a point in putting a new cpu in a b450 if it won't get whatever benefits a x570 would give it.

If the new chips truely need a x570 to really stretch it's legs and run at full capabilities (as well how a newer mobo affects late model super fast m.2 drives).

Am I fine with the b450 or do I need to pull it and get a x570 to get the total performance?

Hi, I had a question about the Powersupply and Motherboard. Under the notes tab it says that the motherboard has an additonal 4-pin ATX power connector and whereas the PSU doesn't. How big of a problem is this, if it is one at all. Is it worth upgrading to a fully modular PSU to get that power connecter?

  • 3 months ago

Well, the missing connector only restricts cpu overclocking, which is hard with a stock cooler anyway.

  • 4 months ago

I think I finally understand your question after sleeping on it. You meant to ask why did they select the x570 and then only select 3200 speed RAM? Instead, they should have put either an x470 board with the 3200 speed or an x570 and 3600 speed since that is what AMD recommends for new chipset.

I think there are so many areas to save some money in this build. Yes with the 5700 XT when the new cards come out as mentioned below. Also, yes to the B450 mobo instead of the x570. Also, why a gold rated power supply and fully modular? You can save enough money on that alone to buy more storage which you most probably will need.

Here's my suggestion for anyone reading this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/p9TsyX

Like I said though, wait until the 5700 XT is released from other companies with better cooling solutions. Also, this list fixes the RAM issue as well by upgrading to a 3600mghz kit as opposed to the 3200 listed above.

Hi, I've been looking into building a PC for a while and I've been looking at this build for some time now. I was wondering if I needed any extra components such as thermal paste, and also if everything is in order because I have taken a look at the comments and note under the build. It seems that the power supply doesn't have the same power connector as the motherboard. Is that a major problem? Also there seems to be a dissagrements about the motherboard as well? Do I need any special parts for using WiFi instead of Ethernet? I'm sorry if I'm asking too much I just want to make sure I'm getting something top notch for my first PC build

Yes. It doesn't overclock as well. Make sure to read manual for what slots are suppose to be used first. 3600 is kind of the minimum for ryzen 3rd. If it's a Samsung bdie kit which are best right now. Buildzoid YouTube channel gets very technical. Has a list of noteworthy memory ddr4.

The PCPartpicker build guides are great, and I think the parametric filters do a good job most of the time, and the part selections are done well. However, I think it would be better if they just went with some more name brand storage. Something like a Kingston A400 SSD and a WD Blue or Seagate Barracuda Hard Drive.

     I am extremely new to the DIY pc world, and I always appreciate someone taking the time to showcase a build. 
    Sorry, I do have a but. It is hard for me to be excited about this example. An $1100 budget with an SSD Sata serving dual purpose is a little confusing to me. If you are not utilizing M.2 NVME why bother with a 3k Ryzen and a X570 motherboard? Wouldn't a 2600 and a x450 make more sense, or is my being very green missing something very obvious?
      This is legitimately a question, learning as I go. Thank you for your time and any informative response you take the time to provide.

Unless you do pcie 4 with the new m.2. X570 doesn't make a lot of sense. The newer boards do have better vrm(power management). You can do the ryzen 3rd gen with b450 or x470. If you are buying new the mobo would need bios flashback. Which you can update the bios without a CPU. Many msi mobo have this.

  • 4 months ago
  • 2 points

Looking at your build, I think that it makes more sense to go X570 than it does here, but I'm still on the fence. The tomahawk has a good VRM so that won't be an issue, but you may value some of the features a higher end board will give you. X570 will give you PCIE 4.0 (this only helps for NVMe SSDs that use PCIE 4.0 (your one doesn't) and doesn't really matter for gpus. The reason to go with X570 is SLI support and future upgradability. If I were you, I would get the tomohawk and use the 50 bucks saved to get more storage.

  • 4 months ago

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah a lot of people tell me to get more storage but for me its not that important i am currently living with a 300 GB HDD so 500 GB SSD will be more than enough for me now. Obv i can add a HDD or another SDD later on as i please. Anyway I did some reasearch on SSDs cause for now i had the Crucial P1 which i quite frankly only put in because it has the cheapest price tag. But i found out it has very poor endurance. And to me thats kinda important. I found a SSD with very good endurance not even that much more expansive I could even go for the 1GB option. It even has better endurance than Samsungs Evo model. You might wanna take a look at that it seems to good for this price. Here is my updated build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/BJFRjy

I am still debatting what ram to go with i mean the zen 2 have their sweetspot at 3600Mhz but they are pricy. For now i am running 3200Mhz 14 cas but i have found 3200Mhz 16 cas for almost half the price. Do you have any other advice on the build?

Buy a sabrent rocket for an ssd. It uses TLC NAND instead of QLC (more info found here https://youtu.be/OffzVc7ZB-o). Its an NVMe SSD and has great value. Unfortnunately, you can't clone onto it which is one drawback.

Amd storemi is an interesting feature. It kind of merges fast and slow storage. Say a 500gb m.2 and a 2tb hd. It loads what's needed to speed things up to the m.2. See if that would work for you.

I would not buy a regular 2060 for that price on a build. You are cutting one of the biggest corners in PC building which is sacrificing your GPU for other options. Take your 1tb SSD. Instead of paying 127.99 for one SSD you could pick up a small SSD boot drive and an HDD for half the cost and use the other half toward a better GPU like the 2060 Super or better yet the 5700 XT when the new coolers come out in a couple weeks.

Hey, I'm seeing alot of comments talking about the 5700 XT and was wondering, to anyone who has built this build or people who know alot about graphics cards, is that should I just stick w/ the 2060 SUPER or should I instead swap it out with a 5700 XT, since it seems to have the same specifications as a 2070 SUPER but for a lower cost. The only reason why I cant decide is that alot of people are talking about the temperatures on the 5700 XT and i was mostly curious if that would make a big deal in performace.

  • 4 months ago
  • 2 points

The 5700 XT will get new coolers in the next couple weeks when the non blower styles come out. This will decrease your temps and yes it performs equal to a 2070 Super for the cost of a 2060 Super.

This PC build looks great. Thank you for your research.

The only concern I have, is while all of these parts have been selected from mostly different sources (to which I'm assuming is because of best prices), I think postage might further increase the overall price, as to having to buy a license for Windows 10.

I imagine the true price of this build will probably rise to about $2,000 or so. What do you think?

  • 4 months ago

Noooo it's not gonna be $1,000 in tax, shipping and for a windows key. Tax and shipping might be like $100+ because most places offer free shipping. A windows key can run you anywhere from $5 to $150 so take your pic.

The Ryzen 5 2600 will work fine, but you do lose out on a little performance. If you want pure gaming performance, the i5 9400F isn't a bad choice, especially considering that it is around the same price as the Ryzen 5 2600 and performs better in games. If you want to make it cheaper, you could try using an AMD RX 5700 instead of the RTX 2070 Super

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

Please change the RTX 2060 super to an RX 5700/XT, best price to performance is a bad joke a best.

The RX 5700 XT delivers 2070 super performance for the same price as the 2060 super, whilst giving you Image Sharpening, Antilag, full Freesync support, PCI Gen 4 and unlimited OC headroom.

Raytracing just isn't an argument. The technology isn't viable yet and neither are Game developers willing to implement it. By the time Ray Tracing becomes a standard, it will be done by AMD as they are the ones, who are developing the consoles and are the ones who are favored by developers for their freedom.

RTX is the future of data centers, not PC gaming.

Also what 5700 XT should I get? I keep seeing different brands and models. Amazon is preferred but Newegg is also fine.

I'd still get an RX 5700, however get an aftermarket card. Ideally a Sapphire Pulse, Gigabyte windforce or Powercolor Red Devil aftermarket model. I've built in the p300 and its a fantastic case, though the powersupply you had there is too expensive, you don't need much power for pcs now. Storage is fine if you've only got a few games, however I'd say upgrade to a 2tb HDD when you get the chance. You can also use an older B450 if you get the bios flashed if you want to save a bit more.

  • 3 months ago
  • 1 point

Name of this build is a bit misleading. If you were just gaming this would be a decent rig. If you were just streaming it would be a ok rig. But not both. Right now (8.30.19) I would not game and stream on together on an AMD rig anyways unless you were planning to drop about another $500 +/- into this. With this build your going to lack in fps on your game or resolution on your stream. This build doing both is going to run hot hot hot so an aftermarket cooler for the CPU it is a must. This would make a nice cheap/budget build for an entry level gamer though.

  • 3 months ago
  • 1 point

It’s decent for both. NVENC is great for streaming, and prevents lag spikes in heavy rendering tasks. AMDs CPUs are not as good for streaming as intel, but it’s a budget build so who cares. The stock cooler can handle the pairing of an RTX card, so if you under volt it by like .25 it will run smoother, and cooler.

Is it actually worth getting a 3000 series AMD chip with the 570 boards? The 570 boards are two or three times the cost of last gen's boards. To me, that seems to make it not worth it price-wise, since an Intel chip and board combo would come out to be about the same price as an AMD chip / board combo.

Eh, I'd just change the graphics card for an rx 5700 or 5700xt. Little bit better performance overall.

Does it matter if I change the case that it's in right now im new to building PC's so I wouldn't know

So I am pretty much following this exact build except for: 1)MSI mpg x570 gaming plus motherboard. 2)Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8 GB WINDFORCE OC Video Card.

-Two things of note that I am concerned with now that parts are coming in. 1) I was planning on using my old PSU with just the 8 pin connector but I am seeing so many conflicting reports as to the effect this will have long term. I will overclock but nothing crazy. 2) Reading the manual for the motherboard, it is saying I need an optical drive for the drivers, is that really necessary?

Sorry for the stupid questions, first PC build and for me its a lot of money so it makes me nervous. Thank you so much in advance.

That is correct. openGL is kinda bad with the 5700XT though.

For $150 more this build includes monitor keyboard and mouse. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/T.Oddball/saved/ybxx6h

Or you can go one Gen Older and it will be at the same price.

you could lower the RTX 2060 SUPER to a regular 2060 and bump the RAM up to 3600 speed, could improve streaming performance.

GPU is essential to gaming performance. 2060 super is easily worth the upgrade! If you find a good deal, a regular RTX 2070 is fine as well.

Awesome Build! Great work on the research and effort to everyone. There are so many options out there for configurations that it becomes daunting to build a PC from scratch. It was great to be able to read about all the build types and budgets and pick one where once put together - everything is compatible. The critiques helped me to understand why certain parts were or were not selected.

You should change the power supply to the EVGA 2019 700w

  • 2 months ago

Why? This system will never even need 500W.

But the EVGA 2019 is a little over half of f the cost of the existing power supply, even if you get the 700w model

Hey Guys,

So if i wanted to use this build to stream my 4k library of movies to my tv, as a plex server..would it suffice? Or would I be better off with intel as per the comments....

Hi fellow pc guys and girls I'm new to this site, I've only used it a few times. I have never actually built a pc with this hardware, although I have completed an older build.

How would I incorporate more "RGB" into this system while keeping the price down? (Less than €1600) I heard this Ryzen processer is killing it, but is it true?

Thank you!

A very popular opinion in this common section, but I would definitely put the RX 5700 XT instead of 2060 super. As reported by Tom's Hardware (https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gpu-hierarchy,4388.html), the XT performs more like a 2070 super or a 1080ti, but cost wise is about the same or sometimes even cheaper. More to the point, this is an AMD build, so using a NVIDIA card is strange at best, and certainly made more sense in the days of Vega, and never really made sense for lower end builds.

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/oiyoushlaag/saved/qbpPnQ Take a look at this build... its the best parts bang 4 buck, while still looking good and works out of the box, no bios updates! Everything you need to start Gaming... upgrades... more storage 7200 speed hard drive or sata ssd for your games library, films, pictures etc... and more case fans

Please comment on using an MSI 570 style mobo. Oh, maybe more $$. Upgrading an ancient computer with MSI mobo. This gives me some experience then I build Monsta! New releases of windows have slowed two usable machines to point of having to replace or upgrade. $#@& Microsoft.

Why not change the Ryzen 3600 to a Ryzen 7 2700X, both CPU's are great for the price with now a 5-6 dollar difference. Since you would be streaming, the 2700X has 16 threads which would be helpful when using programs that use multithreading. Other than that, I love the build.

RAM is RAM. Brand is 100% irrelevant. There are only 3 OEM's that actually make RAM. Plus all RAM has a life time warranty.

I'm still confused. I said nothing about anything being off brand, in fact I basically said there was no such thing as off brand RAM since it had to be made by one of 3 OEM's.

Ram is ram, but they all have variance degrees of usability - bad, but usable in some builds, bad, but unusable in some builds good, better, great, the best and etc.

especially with Zen AMD ram has huge differences, so no ram is just ram, even if only 3 or so manufactures make the dies. Vast variances in die quality and silicon lottery essentially.

also, the guy was mentioning about BigBoynoob comment on off brand, which G.Skill is not off Brand, an off brand ram would be like OLOy Ram or Color ram, which essentially are starting to pick up budget games for their cost of ram.

You see, the rtx 2060 super stays with the budget, offers less wattage so you could save on the psu. Also, rtx cards have better 1440p capabilities, along with some ray tracing to seal the deal.

I see some problems in this build. First look at the CAS latency on the RAM. That is much higher then most RAM sticks, which are around 16. Secondly the case is horrible. All of NZXT's cases right now are terrible on airflow. If you want proof just watch Gamers Nexus's video. Lastly I would get a different power supply because I don't think that 500 watts will make the cut.

NZXT is nowhere near the best in terms of airflow. They look minimalistic and that's basically why people get it. Nothing airflow wise changed from the NZXT H500 to the H510, so how would it get any better. Get out if the buildapc discord server my guys.
