My First PC Build

Hi, I am about to attempt my first ever PC build. I`m pretty new to all this but i`ve been researching and watching videos this past few months and now have all my parts picked out. I was just hoping to have someone give me the "Ok" on my build before i start buying parts. I just want to check that everything makes sense, is compatible with one another, nothing will get bottlenecked by another component just general stuff like that. I`m going for a decent mid range pc and the games I intend to play are anything from Overwatch to CS:GO to Age of Empires to Minecraft to Sekiro and many more. I also am basically just wanting a steady 1080p 60fps for most of the games.

My Parts Are :

CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 2600 6-core

GPU : MSI AMD RX580 Armor 8GB

Motherboard : MSI B450 Tomahawk ATX

RAM : Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 3000Mhz

HDD : Toshiba 2TB 7200 3.5"

SSD : Sandisk 120GB

PSU : EVGA 650 GQ 80+ Gold

Case : NZXT H500

Random Questions -

Q. I`m not sure about my PSU as i couldn`t find out the Watt usage of every component, except a few. So i don`t know if i`ve too little or does having too much even matter ?

Q. Is the stock fans on the case enough or would i need more ?

I know I have a hundred more questions but can`t think of them right now.

Anyway I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions given.
Thank you.

  1. For that system a decent 550 watt PSU will be fine. But there is nothing wrong with the 650 watt unit either.

    I would stick with the fans that come with the case and go from there. I love the case by the way.

    Everything looks pretty good. Not sure how close to your budget you are, but I would suggest a little bit bigger and better SSD. Prices have gone way down.

    You can get a good MX500 with 500gb of storage for less than $70. The 250gb model is $50. Those are hard prices to beat.
