Good system for a Ryzen 2600 & RX 590?

Mar 25, 2020 2:50AM PDT

I already have a RX 590, a Ryzen 2600 by itself (no heatsink) is on its way, and I have some 16 GB 3000 MHz memory I'll use until I can find some faster for cheaper (1-2 days ago there was 16 GB 3600 MHz for almost 20% cheaper so I'll keep an eye out for a couple weeks if I can find something as cheap). I need the rest of the system. Just in case it's necessary: I have a mid-tower and Freesync 4K monitor.

What do you think of the following build? If you think something else would be better, please have the price in a similar range (I could go a--bit--higher).

Thank you kindly

Looks like one of the PCMR builds to me.

Nod to with a note that PCMR changes from time to time. They used the AMD 450 based boards for months.

There is an issue with the 4K monitor. I don't see high 4K frame rates being possible with your build. Are you OK with sending your monitor the usual 1080 signal to get decent gaming frame rates?

20 FPS?

I don't see anything about a 2600 on the URL you provided and I'd like a suggestion for a system that must contain a Ryzen 2600 & RX 590.
I don't think I even get 20 FPS currently w/o seeing tearing, if I can get to that point it would be nice. I don't play FPS, so there's no need to see things really quickly; I just want it to look good. If once I setup the 2600 system, if it persist and I can't stand it, I'll try 1440p.

As I noted.

PCMR changes over time and they did have those devices there for a time.

1440p on 4K would introduce very odd display issues so if you see issues at 4K try 1080p which is an exact 2X multiple and avoids the issues.

If you were looking for an exact match that would have happened on PCMR months ago. For me it's close enough to note them and move on to what issue I see with the build. That's is, you asked what folk think of the build.

Opinion on exact parts
Mar 25, 2020 9:06AM PDT

By users thoughts, it was those about that particular build; something along the line of "X is not so good, you may want something like Y instead." or "That's a good system, particularly Z.".

The build is good enough but the 4K display is not good. I'd like to see at most a 1440p 60 to 144Hz display or even a 1080p 60 to 144Hz display. 4K is going to be too much for video playback all too often. For things like photoshop and card games which don't need high FPS the 4K is fine.
