For maximum FPS, especially at 4K, I suggest going with the 3600X, also an X570 motherboard, 3600 MHz RAM frequency, a faster NVMe SSD, (the Intel 660p is limited to 1800 MB/s read & write, the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro has speeds of 3500 MB/s read & 2300 MB/s write) and a more powerful graphics card, the RX 5700 XT is 17% faster than an RTX 2060 Super and 13% faster than an RTX 2070, the MSI Gaming X variant is one of the best RX 5700 XT models.

Hi Robert sounds good so far, isn't the original ram better though? And have i basically downgraded on the storage though.. and I would obviously need more than 500gb.

Best I can do for 4k gaming. I was considering a 2600 instead of the 3600 in order to * maybe * fit a 2080 Super. I dunno if this is possible, and I also dunno if that's a good trade-off for 4k gaming. It is a bit over, but like I said, if you want a good 4k gaming experience, this is what I would go with.

Reply with any questions / if you want me to throw out the build i talked about above.

Enjoy

Also, if you want more than 500gb of storage, which I don't know why you would (I have Fortnite(70gb) Sea of Thieves(42gb) Rocket League(16gb) and both Minecrafts(12 ish gb i'm guessing here), and it's about half of my 512gb drive including windows.) If you really think you'll want more storage instead of faster storage, and yes that's the choice you have without sacrificing performance, just let me know.

I have no room left on my xbox one x which is 1tb, I would use 500 GB pretty fast, if its one of the best options I would keep it just need to have another memory source and budgets already close

So would you want a 1tb SSD or should I add a hard drive on top of the 512gb SSD? And at some point, a sacrifice is going to have to be made, because the checklist of "must-haves" is starting to exceed the budget. I can guarantee you'll have the best experience (60fps LOWS in graphically intensive games) at 4k with the part list I've shown because of the 2080, but that would probably get cut to a 2070 SUPER at least should you want more storage. You might not be looking at that 60fps sweet-spot with a 2070 SUPER in those intense games, but in the end it is your call. I just know that I would the 2080.

Sorry guys I know I havnt replied in a few days I have been really busy, thankyou all for your interest and effort to help me I just dont have as much knowledge as all of you and I was hoping a few of you would come together with a build and agree, instead I've had multiple builds suggested which has made me more clueless if anything haha I think I know a few things. - ryzen 3600x is the better option - I need the right motherboards to take the cpu without any flash bios etc... - I think the radeon 5700 xt graphics card is the way to go I dont know what variant as they have brought out newer versions because I know there was a problem with the heat it produced but I think that gpu is better than the rtx 2070 and ray tracing isn't really that special atm isit. - ram is what confuses me the most I know Robert as said the patriot viper steel 16gb 8gb is probably the best option do anyone agree with this over my original ram which a few people did reccomend outside this forum? - I do agree with have a super fast storage, but i also need a decent amount aswell, I gets confused what's better ssd or nvme?

I need the right motherboards to take the cpu without any flash bios etc

A Gaming Plus MAX or Tomahawk MAX would be the way to go.

Would I not have to mess about with any of it with them do it come out the box fully compatible? And which one is better?

Nope, the BIOS is already done for you.

Both are close to the same.
