Hey guys new here, so hello Im in need of a new gaming pc and would appreciate some advice.


What is your budget and currency? $1000 US
Do you need a monitor? No
Do you need a keyboard? No
Do you need a mouse? No
Do you need an operating system? No

What will you use the PC for?

This pc will be mostly for gaming, but also some media work like photoshop and some casual video work. Ive mostly played on console and am looking to dive into pc gaming.

Ive been doing some research what do you guys think of the $1000 build here: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

You can overclock the 1600 to the same performance as the 1600X for less.

Great thank you. I've heard the Cryorg might no be compatible with Ryzen, or I have to get the compatible pieces separate is that true? Do I need the cooler if I go with the 1600 since it comes with one? Or do I need a separate one to overclock better?

It wont make that much difference with overclocking but it will look better than the stock cooler. You don't have to get the cooler, you can always stick with the stock cooler and make the build cheaper.
