This is a budget build list that I put together, hope this will give you some inspiration for your own builds! This build features a Ryzen 5 5600, a RX 6600, and solid components otherwise in the parts list. This should be able to do 1080p games no problem, and get into 1440p as well in certain games. The 6 cores of the Ryzen 5 5600 also make it decent for video editing and rendering. *Note that the system does not include an operating system.*
Nice build for the price. Hopefully this will help someone out looking in this budget area!
This should even be helpful for people building slightly higher budget AMD systems. It's a good baseline AMD gaming PC where you can go through and ask "what is worth the price to upgrade?". Do you want a B550 motherboard for future expansion? A more powerful graphics card? Better airflow case? From your build the upgrades are all about better performance and personalization, not just functioning with modern software and games.
Great job! It's all about finding that perfect balance between price/performance, and you've certainly done that here. I would consider bumping the board to a B550 as a first priority, you don't want to miss out on the PCIe 4.0 benefits! Plus, the more efficient Smart Access Memory since you're staying within vendor.
