Is this Pc build a good build for 1080p Ultra - High quality gaming?

Ryzen 5 1600
Gtx 1060 6gb
16 GB 3000MHZ (8 X 2) DDR4 ram
(also need help on a mobo)
I already have a 650W Power supply
2 TB HDD
and that is basically most of what I can think of. If anyone has any ideas if this is good, or if there is a good Motherboard (One that I maybe able to Overclock a bit on) than that would be awesome!

  1. Pretty popular with Ryzen builders for its features and overclocking capability... MSI B350 Tomahawk Motherboard

    Get GSkill memory kits as they are performing better with Ryzen with their Samsung B die.

    As long as it is under about 600 I am ok.

  4. Spend a bit more for the 1600.

  6. I am a complete idiot, I forgot to mention I have a 1060 already as I have a pc now that needs an upgrade, so the parts I have are a 1060, 2tb, 650W Power supply, and a case and that is it

    The GSkill Ram is best for Ryzen. The board is pretty solid. And a NVME SSD for faster performance.
    Reply to Hellfire13
  8. That SSD is overpriced for what it offers, the 850 Evo is faster for the same price.
    Also a good 250GB is all that's needed, it's a waste to spend any more.
    You don't need to spend 600.

  9. The 850 evo is a SATA SSD with sata speeds. The 600p is an NVME SSD with NVME speeds.
    Whereas to get the 960 Evo he has to ditch the better board, which is absolutely not recommended.
    OP if you can stretch your budget a bit, then replace the Intel 600p with the Samsung 960 Evo in my list, but dont go with the 250GB. Get the 500GB unit, its worth it with faster Write speeds.

  10. You need to include a case in the budget. ;)
    I get your previously mentioned skepticism with the AsRock board, but i've seen no such issues in my testing.
    However if one wanted they could upgrade to the Tomahawk just fine, even though it is overpriced imo.

  11. I have tested the b350 tomahawk and its a pretty decent overclocker for its price. Also unlike the ASRock, it supports XMP memory which is an added advantage. The ASRock on the other hand has ECC profile which can slow down the performance in real time.
    The OP already has a case.

  12. If you want to spend more on the board @OP, get this for a little more over the Tomahawk.

  13. Spending on a more expensive board doesnt always add value. Even that board doesnt have XMP and other than a slightly better VRM and Crossfire, it has nothing more to offer. Get this if you can stretch the budget. The bigger capacity SSD is a better investment.

  14. It does have XMP support. ?
    While it may be better $ per GB, it is not always the best investment.
    For a gaming rig 250GB is heaps, any more isn't really a great use of money, especially at this price point.
    At that stage you might as well get a 1700, and before you ask yes you can still slot the Tomahawk in it, although I insist that it isn't worth the extra $30 for a few extra features, OCs the same in my experience, and both support XMP.
    "Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules"

    This is the last list i'm making, silly to go back and forth.
    Leave it as is, continue via PM if you feel inclined to @Hellfire. :)

  15. Thats why a faster SSD isnt worth it for the purpose. Thats why my first list was made to keep an all round balance.
