Nicely done sir, only thing I would recommend would be upgrading your Power Supply to a $100 750W, don't leave any money on the table and skimp on a $48 dollar PSU.

Your going to be drawing close to 500W +,.. easy with optical drives, pci cards, fans, other devices,.. see if you can snag a nice deal on a Bronze 750W.

Thank you I agree, I was going to go with a Ryzen 2600 but even over clocked it gets outpaced by the 9400f

I have the same processor. I also play at 1080p. The only difference is the card and 16gb ram maybe. I'm totally fine so...

I will definitely change 2x4gb 2400mhz for 2x8gb 2400mhz. Mabe there is not so much difference in terms of $$$.

As someone said the PSU could be better but is not a very demanding PC (in terms of power consumption). I don't know the brand Cougar but maybe a Cooler Master / Thermaltake 600-700w should be ok.

I was thinking it looks a little light on the ram but meh, it's not that serious...
