We have no plans to include that CPU in a build guide at this time as it is only available from a single retailer in the USA for retail price, significantly higher prices outside the USA, BIOS issues with 300 series boards, its confusing to new builders who are the target of these guides, and it doesn't have a product page from AMD. For more experienced builders it is an option to consider if you are in the USA.

You are generally looking at a sub 3% performance increase for a significant increase in cost between 3600c16 and 3200c16. That's assuming you can even run your memory at 3600 (let alone cas 16). Ryzen is extremely finicky about DIMMs and going above even 3200.

Not everything is about price/performance. We try to keep some gaps between builds and this one comes in roughly around 750. To maximize performance you sometimes leave the price/performance curve.

You'd likely want something different for day trading as it can require more performance. I'd make a post on the create a part list for me forum.

The 5600 XT was just released, we don't immediately add new products to guides as there may be driver or stock issues.

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

The Completed Builds section is for PCs that you have finished assembling, and photos of the assembled PC are required for approval. If you upload photos of this PC when it's finished being assembled, please create a new Completed Build, and it will be approved.

If this isn't a PC you already own, you may be looking for the Part List Opinions Wanted subforum.

That's a good call. We've actually updated the guide to a 2080 Super.

Ultra at 1440p you can get 150+ FPS. Low will be extremely easy.

Right, you pay a little more and you get a little more performance. The 1660, 1660 Super, and 1660 Ti are on a sliding scale of both price and performance.

If the goal is gaming I would never compromise a core component like the GPU for more storage which can be added at any time.

Not really when you look at the large cities which all trend blue. Look for downtown prices in Austin and Dallas.

They just opened new condos a year or two ago downtown austin. 700sqft for 700k

Your part list decreased both performance and compatibility. The motherboard is not guaranteed to be compatible which is why we have specifically gone with X570 for first time builders. The CPU performance increased but for games it will not change your FPS and using the stock cooler will be inferior to the noctua on the 3600. You are also spending almost twice as much on an SSD that will have zero practical performance difference in a gaming/streaming build.

You are free to criticize but please keep it polite and constructive.

You can save around 20-30 dollars for the super but the 1660 Ti will outperform it in all games.

There's no reason to sacrifice performance and storage space to change the memory which will have a minimal at best increase in FPS. The case has excellent airflow and is flexible based on user needs.

Those media sources push that information because they are being paid to do so. We won't stand by and be enablers for people who steal credit cards, personal information, and keys from devs to make money because users won't spend money on software that they use 10+ hours every single day for 5+ years.

For more information and countless examples of both fraud and keys being invalidated by developers after sales on those sites see: https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/wiki/keyresellers
