    I am hoping to build a budget gaming pc build within a month or two from now, I am trying to get a good idea of what I want in terms of price to performance. I have spent a few weeks sorting out my build and here is what I have come up with. (I think it is fairly thought out) Is there anything that you would change? My budget is around $550 US. Thanks :)

    I would get a 1660 super on sale during black friday, or just wait until black friday and find better parts.

    Thank you! I am trying to get at least half of these parts for Christmas/Black Friday, so I expect prices will vary. With that, I may be able to get better components for the same price, but that will be determined come time. I appreciate the advice! This is my first personal build, I have some exxperience tearing down and rebuilding other desktops in the past, so this isn't anything new. I will be installing Windows 10 Pro on the cheap from a boot .iso I will create. By the way, I did change the RAM to Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 GB 3200mhz for a *ironically* a couple bucks less. The case I will decide on when the time comes to build.
