Final thoughts on this Ryzen 3600 PC?

Hi all, I posted here about a month ago but was told to wait for the new Ryzen CPUs to be released before buying. It will be used mainly for light gaming and photo editing, and I will be using 2 1080p 60hz monitors - may upgrade one of them to a 1440p, will this PC be able to handle it?

My build is below and budget is 1200 GBP - are there any final adjustments I should make?

You could consider the RTX 2060. Especially if either of the bundled games look interesting, but either way. It would certainly give that extra boost for 1440p (and as someone who recently upgraded to 1440p and an RTX 2060, I can certainly say the experience is a big upgrade).

You could drop the mobo to the X470 unless you're super keen for PCIe 4.0

I'd get the 3200MHz RAM, now PCS offer it with Ryzen

Spec looks nice :)
 
Thanks! So something like this?

Looks good to me. A 1660 ti will still perform at 1440p if you're keen to save on costs, though depending on the titles you favour and your expectations as to settings, a 2060 has the edge in performance of course. :)
