So I've been working on building my PC. After gathering all these desirable parts I want to know how it would perform. I don't know the capabilities of how well this would perform.

For my PC i think the minimum i want is to be able to play at least 30fps 1080p gaming. I don't know about anything of the other important factors in this but if you can tell me more than I don't know that would be great.

I would also like your opinion on the build, feel free to tell me what you would change.

CPU: I chose this CPU because I personally like AMD and the Ryzen series

GPU: With all the price skyrocketing all the time, i chose the GTX 1060 as it still is a great GPU and somewhat affordable.

RAM: I wanted to 16gb of RAM for this PC and this RAM is white... that's why i chose it.

If you think there is a better alternative tell me.

But what I most want to know is how capable and strong it is? PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

30fps on 1080p? You'll easily get 60. This is a great computer build

You'll be rock solid at 60fps @ 1080p.

no reason to go with a ryzen 1600 now though. Get the 2600 instead, it's all around better and just a few bucks more. Get a B450 Tomahawk too.
