edited June 2020 in Help Choosing Parts
Hi this is my first of build and I have somewhat an idea of what I’m doing but just wanted to make sure it was good and compatible. I play cod, league, valorant, and assassins creed odyssey was hoping to play red dead 2 I play a variety of games lol. Does this look like a solid build to run those games?

    It's a solid build overall. Only thing I'd mention is since you're going with a Ryzen 5 3600, you could save yourself some money by getting a less expensive B450 motherboard and put that extra money towards say, a better PSU or a bigger SSD. 

    You also don't need a 750W PSU for that system, you could go with a 650W and have plenty of wiggle room. 750W isn't really necessary unless you're running two GPUs.
