I'm making myself a new gaming/home computer and I have been planning for awhile. This is what I have come up with.
So I am making a custom case for all of it, I also already have a 10000 rpm 1TB hard drive I plan on using with this. Main priority is bang for my buck as my maximum budget is around 800/850 dollars with silence as a 2nd priority.
My main concerns is with 2600x vs 2600 vs 3600. The 2600x comes with slightly faster speed and a better stock cooler than the 2600. The 3600 is even faster with the same stock cooler(As far as I know don't quote me on that), but about 50 more dollars? 2600 isn't a major downgrade but it has a higher heat index with a worse stock cooler. The 3600 also might need a BIOS update which requires a older CPU.
I also am a little worried about the Graphic card as its about 250 dollars and I know there are cheaper counterparts plus at the same time it's a relatively new card so there isn't too many actual reviews of it as far as I can see.
So opinions/suggestions? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/kh2f9G
