how does my new build look?

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mWhQvV I was thinking of upgrading the H60 to the NH-D15, I was also planning to overclock the 1600x, all of the bought parts are apart of my old build, I mainly use my computer for gaming

    A SSD is a nice option, so if you can budget it, go for it. It will spoil you on boot times.

    Everything else looks fine overall. Just pay attention to the RAM, you want fast RAM, but you also want it to reach its full speed. It may do it now, but it might need a BIOS update to do it. (Ryzen & Ryzen motherboards have been pretty picky, at least before the BIOS updates.) You can even drop to a B350 motherboard without sacrificing too much if you want to save a few more dollars.

    You'll do great @ 1080p, and should reach 144-165 Hz at Ultra settings. You'll also do pretty great at 1440p as well. (you should already know this by now though.)

  4. the cdrom player is from my old build, so might as will move it over, everything that says purchased means that I already have it, I plan to get an ssd in the future, i'm slowly adding parts, I have 1 1080p monitor and one 768p monitor, planning to get a higher hz 1080p monitor or a 1440p monitor

    I'd stick with the X370. It's worth the extra money. The thing I'm finding about B350 - especially the board I'm interested in purchasing which is the MSI B350 Tomahawk, is that most B350 boards are limiting in the number of SATA ports you can have. The MSI B350 has 4 SATA ports, which is fine if you don't plan on using an M2 SSD. If you do plan on using an M2 then I would stick with the X370. You can always get the SSD later on.

    Yes, Ryzen builds benefit from having DDR4-3000 or better, so yes stick with that.

  9. For that price of mobo, I would go for this one instead.
