Okay so I tried making a build list (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zF6TQZ) but I'm not sure if I did the best, or even decent. I'm mainly trying to make a decent pc that can run new AAA titles at or close to highest settings for about 900$(my max budget). Can you think of anything better than what I did?

CPU: Same, Solid Motherboard: Asus, IMO a better board. Although it comes down to personal preference Memory: Faster 3200 Memory, Could be upgraded to Trident Z RGB for $20 More for a e s t h e t i c s Storage: 128gb Is Waaay to small for 2019. Replaced with a fast 500GB, a HDD can be added later on. GPU: RX Vega 56, About 30% Faster than a 1660 Case: Same, a p400s Is another solid one, although its preference. PSU: 550w Gold, EVGA, What else can I say Fan: Not needed

  • Unless you need the extra resources, a Ryzen 5 will be just fine
  • Better PSU and GPU
  • Airflow optimised case (added some fans, for aesthetic kick and also for flow)

  • 2600x will be about the same in gaming to the 2700, and if your goal is strictly gaming the savings can be spent elsewhere. If you are streaming, then I'd have to look at trying to squeeze in a 2700 or swapping to the 1700.

  • Better PSU and faster RAM

  • Larger, better SSD

  • Vega 56 is a lot stronger than the RX580 or GTX 1660. It can beat a GTX1660 ti most of the time, and comes with a couple free games.

  • Didn't touch your case, but you can also look at the Phanteks P350x or airflow focused cases like the Fractal Design Focus G.

  • Motherboard with excellent VRMs, better than some lower end X470 boards.

  • Below budget before MIR. Extra money can be easily spent on better RAM (Samsung B-Die 3200MHz CAS14 is a popular choice for optimizing Ryzen performance), CPU (if you needed the extra cores, the Ryzen 2700 or even saving money for the 3xxx series chips coming later this year), or SSD (could easily get a 500GB SSD or just fit in a cheap 1TB)

CPU's do not affect gaming that much so a ryzen 7 is a little overkill, I took it down to a five to save money.

The new Nvidia lineup has been blasted by a ton of reviews. I swapped it for a 50, its red and has a tripple fan setup so I though you would like it. Be sure to check if it fits though, that beast is a massive card. If you like feel free to upgrade to 580, or go grab ya a 1070 on the cheap if you can.

Storage and Ram I swapped to what I though you would actually use. If you want to get another 8gb of ram that would be fine. I personally have had good luck with kingston and western digital so thats who I trust.

For $720 I think this is a pretty sweet build honestly, should do 90% of what you want. The only thing I would upgrade is the graphics card if you really want to spend more and then add more ram later if you actually need it.

Hope this helps.

Good deal, there is a review from JaysTwoCents on youtube that shows that 570 is an absolute beast. You should check it out. Anyway hope between everyone you find something you like.
