New Build Review

Hey all,

I was gifted a 3800x for my birthday, as the person who gave the gift knew I was pricing out parts for a new build. Very awesome and kind of them. I am building a system for gaming and moderate-heavy video editing and motion graphics work. Trying to keep prices reasonable, but not go full cheap. I have a GPU and many SSD's, so the build below has only what I will be buying, and like I said I already have the CPU. I live in LA so I am thinking extra cooling might prove helpful, but maybe not.

What do you think?

Which GPU do you have? You may be able to save some cash by going to a 650Watt PSU and get a better board like a Gugabyte Aorus Elite x570 or an MSI MPG Gaming Edge x570 @shilka can give you better advice on PSU choice tho.
See if you can find a ram kit with CL16-16-16 36 timings.(don’t forget to download the ryzen ram calculator if you want to optimize your ram performance)
Did you check ram clearance with the cooler?
Also do you need wifi on the motherboard?
Other than that, the person who gave you that chip is very generous. Congrats.

Sort of like my system Fast n' Cheap in sig.

I got the 3700X, same mobo and CPU cooler.

I got the Fractal Design Ion+ 860P 80 PLUS Platinum Certified 860W Full Modular PSU based on Shilka's advise and I think the 750W model of the Ion would be cheaper then your Corsair if not better as well.

I also saved by getting the G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3600 16-19-19-39 CAS Latency 16 1.35V. It's the same kit as yours minus the bling for cheaper.

I have a 1660 super, but I plan to go 3080/ti depending on how the next round of cards go, so I want enough power for that as a possibility. Or a 2080 super for black friday. Also, I could see myself getting 3950x or something in 2 or 3 years from the 2nd hand market.

I don't mind spending a little more if it's worth it, what would you recommend? Any reason you recommend those boards over the asus?

You dont need an 850 watt unless you plan on mess around with LN2 cooling or have two GPU´s so a 650 watt is more than enough power but you can go with a 750 watt if that makes you feel better
With that being said the Seasonic Focus or Prime Ultra or the Fractal Design Ion+ are better options and most if not all of them would be cheaper than the HX
