(Novice) PC build questions.

Build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/JcMWNN

Hi all i have some questions about this build and it would help me a great deal by getting some answers .
Thanks in advance.

What budget case would fit all these parts inside of it?

Any good budget Mechanical keyboard and mouse that will help cut the price down?

Will it be hard to set up both SSD and hard drive?

Will i get 60FPS on high settings for current games?

And last one sorry Any ways i could cut down money on this build whilst still getting the frames etc?

Once again thanks in advance since im a complete novice at this.

    Explanation:
    1. Your choice of MB is not very good
    2. your ram is out of stock
    3. ssd is too small for 2-3 games. Major two benefits using ssd: booting and game loading
    4. CXM is good cpu and cost less
    5. cut on peripherals for other components, you can always upgrade later on.

  3. This list includes a larger SSD for game storage, a more reliable motherboard, more powerful CPU, aesthetically appealing case (at least in my opinion), and most of all, cheaper monitor, mouse and keyboard.

    If this PC's purpose is to play games, why the Ryzen 3 1200? You get an extra 400MHz with the 1300X for less than £20 more.

    Easily OC 1200 to get that extra 400MHz or more and we are cutting down costs.

    Not with that case. Use vapour's most recent list (the one that says updated case) and you'll be good.

  10. Case is personal and the new one is fine, weberdarren's pick is also good.

    Cooler Master - CM 590 III or Fractal Design - Focus G Mini (Black)

    Pick one you like, they both have two fans. My 1600 is ocing using stock cooler with 2 fan case as well.

    Modern CPU coolers come ready to use, the paste is already applied. All you'll have to do is put the cooler on the CPU.

  15. Ryzen stock cooler is already applied with thermal paste, you just eliminate the plastic cover that protects paste and put the cooler on CPU :)

    Thanks just to be safe what would be the best way to ground myself? Will occasionally touching the case be good with the case you have in the build ?

  17. do it on floor instead of carpet
    touch metal stuff before touching the components
    sweater not recommended
    Usually you will be fine.
