Last month on September 1st NVIDIA announced its second generation of RTX graphics card which included the RTX 3070 which is going to be on shelves for purchase starting 29th September. Yesterday AMD came out with their Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs which included everybody's go to 6 core 12 thread Ryzen 5 3600 replacement, the Ryzen 5 5600X which will arrive on shelves on November 5th. Today lets try to make a PC parts list with these new hot CPUs and GPUs. So lets get into it.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X - $299


Obviously as the title suggests we are going with the recently announced 6 core 12 thread AMD Ryzen 5 5600X which is going to go on shelves for sale on November 5th for $299 USD. There are no independent / third-party performance benchmarks yet but AMD is claiming that this processor beats Intel's Core i9 10600K both in professional workloads as well as in gaming. So if you want to get an AMD CPU on launch day without even taking a look at independent reviews and 5600X is your target then this build guide is definitely for you.


CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition - $36.71


For CPU cooling we are going with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition, which will cost you $36.71 USD, instead of the stock cooler because it runs cool and quite. You could easily shave off 10℃ of the Ryzen 5 3600X even at idle and upto 15℃ when under load while also being quite compared to the stock box cooler.

Motherboard: MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk - $174.99


For this build we are going with the MSI B550 Tomahawk Max ($174.99 USD) because of its robust VRM that can even handle a 16 core CPU like a breeze. The massive VRM heat-sink also helps in keeping the VRM from overheating & throttling our CPU. As all B550 boards this board has support for PCIe Gen 4 SSDs through the CPU lanes if you wish to upgrade to those faster speeds later down the line. Look out for the Black Friday deals on this Motherboard. Looks like it will be sold for $150 USD as part of the Black Friday sale.

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 - $499


We are obviously going with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (the Founders Edition will cost you $499 USD) because that is the point of this article - to use the predetermined CPU & GPU combo and build a PC around it. NVIDIA is claiming that this GPU will perform slightly faster than last generation's flagship RTX 2080 Ti while costing less than half of the price. Though we could recommend you to wait for 3rd party reviews to confirm the performance claims. There is also the factor of AMD's RDNA2 that will be announced a day before the RTX 3070 goes on shelves for sale.

RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32GB (2x 16GB) 3600MHz 16-19-19-39 - $169.99


We searched for the cheapest 32GB RAM that could offer 3600MHz speed considering Ryzen is memory sensitive. The Neo line-up from G.Skill means that the RAM is optimized for AMD CPUs but I would also recommend you to use DRAM calculator for Ryzen to tighten the timings a bit more so that you can gain a bit more performance from your CPU. Also if you are only willing to build this PC for gaming right now you can get away with a 2x 8GB kit if you wish to save some money.


Storage: Kingston A2000 1TB NVMe - $119.99


For storage we are going with the Kingston A2000 1TB NVMe SSD due to its price to performance consideration. It has DRAM for reliable performance over longer workloads. Also the point to be noted is that its a PCIe Gen 3 SSD and you can later, if you wish to, upgrade to a PCIe Gen 4 SSD for even faster performance as the B550 motherboard supports a Gen 4 SSD in its top m.2 slot.


PSU: Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro 750W 80+ Gold - $110.00


The PSU situation around the globe is still a mess and because of that we are going to have to pay extra than we would normally pay for a PSU. Today though we are going with an Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro 750W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular PSU. This Earthwatts Gold unit from Antec is the exact copy of Seasonic Focus PSU so it is reliable. We had to go with a 750W PSU just in case if you ever felt the need to upgrade to an RTX 3080 down the line. These NVIDIA GPUs are really power hungry. It has all black flat cables so you do not have to worry about the aesthetics.


Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital - $89.99


The Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital is the best budget case that you can buy right now. It has been the go to recommendation by case reviewers like GamersNexus for the past couple years. This case in its stock configuration keeps both the CPU and the GPU cool with the help of the mesh front and included fans making it the best case at the $95 USD price point.


Note that you won't be able to build this PC before the 5th of November. This article is just to give you a PC parts list that you can buy before hand and then buy the GPU and CPU later on or after 29th September and 5th November respectively.

If you wish to, you can easily shave off another $250-$300 off of this build by using the stock cooler ($36.71 saved), going with a cheaper motherboard around the $120 price point ($50 saved), getting a 2x8GB = 16GB RAM kit ($90 saved), going with a 250GB SATA SSD and 1TB HDD ($50 saved) and finally getting a more cheaper case around the $60 price bracket bringing your total savings to around $250 and you can spend $1250 for the PC. Or you can totally ditch the case and use your PC as an open-air setup and get the cost down to $1200 USD.
