Will definitely get that mouse and keyboard combo as well as the cpu and gpu switch. Thanks for your insight!
Exactly why I chose this processor. If I want to get a top tier GPU I can just get a better CPU cooler and have some good oc's.
Looks good overall, although I would recommend getting a better PSU, something like this would do well.
Where did you see the QVL list?
I think I will do that in an attempt to make room in my budget so I can get a 2600x.
So the memory that I have in my build right now will not work with my CPU or MOBO?
I would go with that higher capacity ssd but I've heard that the Team Group ssd's are pretty crappy. I think i'll just stick with the WD Blue, but thanks for the case recommendation.
Thanks for the replies, I could cut the cost down a bit by going with a 1st gen Ryzen processor and then just get a B350, but I think i'll stick with my current config if there's not going to be any problems with the BIOS.
Thanks for the reply, will swap out the case but I am going to stick with the 2600, sadly I don't have enough room in my budget for the 2600x. I was planing on getting a better cpu cooler later on anyways.
Didn't notice that, thanks
The Ryzen 5 1600 is about equivalent to the one in your build performance wise and it's cheaper. However if you want to get a different CPU cooler than the bundled Wraith Spire that comes with the 1600, I would recommend going for the Ryzen 1600x as it doesn't come with a cooler. Also, looking back now, if you want to save some money you'd probably be fine with a GTX 1050 if you're not going to be playing games that much. I thought I saw somewhere in your post that you would be gaming, my apologies.
Like king said, it's a little op for 1080p, you could probably get away with a 1070 or a 1070ti for at least 60fps on mostly max. But if you're going to be streaming I would reccomend a AMD Ryzen processor as those provide more performance for those sorts of tasks, but in doing that you would need a different motherboard.
I would reccomend an AMD Ryzen processor if you're primarily going to be rendering stuff, Intel has better performance in games.
That GPU isn't gonna do you much, I would highly reccomend upgrading to a GTX 1060, 6gb preferably or an RX 580.
I wouldn't reccomend an Intel processor if you're going to be streaming. AMD Ryzen processors offer a lot more performance and you dont need another CPU cooler if you're not overclocking; the stock one works fine and looks good.

If you want more game performance I would recommend upgrading the GPU once prices settle down.
Awesome build, looks like mine I'm going for right now except I have the 6gb 1060.
You're gonna want some more storage unless you just want Windows xp and Minecraft on that ssd.
That's what I was thinking, just getting one 8gb strip to start out and upgrading later if needed. Thanks for the reply :)
I can still go with AMD, just wanted to compare the two processors in this build.
Thanks for the reply, although I would like to get an Intel Core i5-8400 because this pc would be pretty much only used for gaming. If I did get the i5 instead do you have a different motherboard you would reccomend
Forgot I have Windows 10 Home so i'll just transfer that over when I build it. But do you think if I waited to see if video card prices drop I should get a different processor? Also thanks for the reply.
