    Looks solid especially since you have a still decent gpu and a good psu.  If you can spare the extra 20 bucks the G. Skill Ripjaws V series has a CL16 3600 2x8 kit for 84 pre tax.  And will give you that speed that is better for Ryzen processors.  Really the only change I would suggest.  Enjoy

    Awesome thanks for the heads up!! i dont mind dishing out an extra $20 if that means better performance. Also as you can see i stayed away from RGB lol usually means less expensive right? This should give me some wiggle room for upgrades right? i'll definitely be upgrading my gpu as i continue. 
  • When you look into upgrading your GPU in the future and are planning on streaming a lot, I would recommend sticking to nvidia, as they have NVENC which allows the GPU to take some of the load for streaming from your CPU.  More information can be found here; https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-rtx-streaming/.

    Build-wise, everything looks great!  I do agree with upgrading to 3600Mhz RAM as Ryzen chips do like their higher clock speed RAM.

    Yes, generally RGB is is going to up your cost, especially on RAM. 

    Realistically that Ryzen 5 3600 should last you a while, but since you're going with an X570 board you'll definitely have upgrade room in the future if you want to go that route.
