Motto: Goodfellas is a good fella
Hi all, I posted a while a go about a build and was going to wait till fall for the new releases but its just taken me 2 days to get my computer to load so i think im gonna have to bite the bullet and just start afresh now.

What is your budget and currency? 600-850GBP
What will you use the PC for? Gaming like R6SIEGE, Guild wars/2, Dota 2, fortnite, apex etc. Light bit of office tasks but nothing further than photoshop.
Do you need a monitor? If not, what monitor(s) will you be using? I have a MSI optix MAG271CP
Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals? I need a new keyboard and mouse ideally but doesnt have to be anything special
Do you need an operating system? win 10 prefferably
Will you overclock? For what i will use it for i dont think i really need to
Anything else we should know?
I was looking at this but i dont know what graphics card to go for, a gtx1660,rtx2060 or rx5700 and wether to get a small m2 ssd for operating system and then a larger HDD for storing games. I dont want to slow down loading using a HDD over a SSD.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Same price, but with a better case, PSU, RAM, and SSD;
PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor (£153.00 @ Amazon UK)
Motherboard: ASRock B450M Pro4-F Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard (£69.01 @ CCL Computers)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory (£79.97 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Sabrent Rocket Q 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (£109.99 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB OC Video Card (£219.98 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P300A Mesh ATX Mid Tower Case (£50.99 @ AWD-IT)
Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS Gold 450 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply (£60.46 @
Total: £743.40

I'd probably try spend the extra 30-40 quid for an MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX over a cheap B450 motherboard though.

If you want to spend more and up the GTX 1660 Super to an RTX 2060 or RX 5700, go for it. Keep in mind, the RX 5700 out-performs the 2060 by a decent margin, the 5700 matches 2070 performance.
