Ryzen 5 1600 build look ok?

Building a gaming pc for my brother. Goal of the build was to build something that will max out virtually every game out there at 1080p 60fps while providing some upgradeability if he decides to go 1440p anytime soon. No overclocking will be done. Any comments/critique welcome. PCpartpicker link below.

Games he will likely be playing the most:
Battlefield 1
World of Warcraft

Link doesn't show CPU cooler but plan on using the Wraith Spire Cooler that comes with the Ryzen5.

Update: Also throwing in an 850evo 250gb ssd 2.5" not in the part list.

  1. That particular PSU is not very good. G1/Nex models were not very good quality wise. Ryzen likes faster ram, also. Made some tweaks, to your build, and kept the price close. Also added an aftermarket cooler for a bit of overclocking, even though you don't plan to. At the very least, matching a 1600x should be no problem. That shouldn't require much more than a multiplier bump.

  2. Thank you for this Logain! I switched the ram over to the ddr4-3000 and switched to the G2 Power supply. H7 was on sale at new egg for $38 so went with that instead of H5 Cooler. Thanks again man! Likely saved me some headache on the power supply (google revealed exactly what you said, g1 was iffy).
  3. Save 80 dolla and get 4gb 580, the 8gb is only need for crossfire at 4k rez

    Use 40$ of that 80$ to get trident 3600 c16 memory instead of that 3000. Right now that 3600 memory will run at least 3200 but the 3000 lpx sticks in your order will likely only hit 2400-2666 as that's what most non-Samsung die memory is capping at w Ryzen. As well as Ryzen scales w memory in games when support gets better you will likely get 3400 or even 3600. Some people already getting 3600 but very few.
    To give you an idea though 3.6ghz Ryzen w 3200 MEMORY will beat a 4.0ghz Ryzen w 2666 memory in most games. I recommended the gskill 3600 cl16 because they are Samsung based and that's what's having the best luck clocking high w Ryzen gskill 3200 cl14 are also Samsung based. Good Luck
