You have a decent build so far in my personal opinion. For gpu you have to look at it logically, you want to buy one now and upgrade later? How soon later? The more you cheap out now the more you have to spend later AND the sooner you'll need to upgrade. I can tell you the 8gb RX 580 is a good card as I use it in my backup gaming pc. BUT++++ It does get sorta hot at low fan speeds which is common sense obviously but I mean it idles hotter than majority of the nvidia cards I've owned. Has to have a higher fan speed than some of my other nvidia cards as well but has a temp limit of like 85 which is good. This card overall is good depending on the price, how much is the one you're looking at?

But as I said if you do cheap out it's going to cost you more in the long run and a sooner than expected upgrade if that makes sense?

EDIT: if you arent a gamer then what will you be using this pc for? Literally just browsing, watching YouTube, mining? It's good to know what your exact intentions are. But if you think you may be interested in gaming in the future, like I said it's not good to cheap out. You dont want to cheap out on main components in my personal opinion. I own multiple pcs, low end, mid tier and almost high end. I dont think it's worth cheaping out on a GPU. Even if you're just gonna use it for browsing although someone who got 32 gb ram I dont believe you wont be doing anything hard on this pc

Music production is what my Son does mostly.
Is it too much ram ?
I have not built a computer in 10 years. Didn't want to buy pre built.
Were any of the gpu's I listed better compatible with the mob and cpu.?

I don't believe in "too much ram" but all my pcs have 16gb but your motherboard will have to be compatible with that ram speed. Which I believe yours is. Umm, for the GPU's I'd have to look over them again. Give me a few. If we can get @21 on this thread you'll get all the answers you need

Definitely don't buy a 5500XT. It's just a more efficient RX 580 at a higher price. GTX 1650 Super offers the same performance, similar efficiency to 5500XT, but has the NV encoder and is cheaper. 1650 Super makes far more sense than a 5500XT.

You haven't told us the prices you'd be paying for any of the GPU's you've listed though, so we can't really say which is the best option. It's quite likely none of them are your best option though IMHO.


Don't buy a 32" 1080p monitor lol, that will look god awful. Heck even 27" is too big for 1080p. You should be able to find 27" 1440p60Hz displays pretty cheap these days, that's what I'd be looking at tbh.

I'd probably change that motherboard. If you're set on X570, get the MSI X570 Tomahawk or an Asus X570 board. I'd probably just save some money and go with B450/B550 in a build like this though.

I'd change that case. Enthoo Pro is a perfectly fine case, but it's ancient now. There are far newer, nicer, better options, likely at a more reasonable price as well.

Oh, and the cheap Cooler Master AIO liquid coolers tend to be crap. I'd stick with a decent air cooler, or if you're going to go with an AIO, just pay the price for a good one. *EDIT* Then again, you're running an R5 3600, so you're unlikely to see any temp issues, just maybe not get a whole lot of life out of a cheap CM AIO, but AIO's inherently have a limited lifespan anyway.
