I don’t know much about building a PC or even the parts. I watched a couple videos and I have a decent understanding of each thing, but would these parts work for a gaming and streaming pc?
I really only play Minecraft and possibly some horror games, and I want to stream on twitch.
Any suggestions?


CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8GHz 8-Core Processor ($448.62)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 ($84.90)
Motherboard: Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AC ATX AM4 ($209.99)
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 560 4GB XFX ($328.68)
Memory: 16GB (2 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 C16 ($86.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Crucial P1 1TB, M.2 Solid State Drive ($104.99)
Power Supply: Corsair CX Series CX450M 450W ATX 2.4 Power Supply ($63.23)
Case: Fractal Design Define R5 Black ATX Mid Tower Case ($123.99)
Total: $1451.39

I would try grabbing a more powerful GPU and power supply. Other than that, looks good to me :)

Try finding an RTX 3060 in your region if at all possible. Prices are crazy now, so make sure you don't overpay.
Up the power supply to 550W. You should get one at a similar price.

Thank you so much! That helps a lot! I’ll definitely look into that.
