Hello pc building gurus,

I am building an entry level gaming pc with a budget around $600. The only component I currently have purchased is the RX 580 as I got a crazy deal on a new one! Here is a list of the components I plan on buying. Please let me know if you see anything that could be changed or upgraded for a similar price! Or if I'm making any terrible compatibility mistakes!

I'll add that I'm not terribly worried about upgradeability in this build. When I can afford it in the future, I plan to build a new pc with everything upgraded.

I could copy one or two options here but the true is that you already have a very balanced build for 600$.

That said, I'd change the Kingston to a 660p or Sabrent Rocket, and try to fit there a MSI B450M Mortar Max.

Motherboard prices bounce around, but you can probably get an Asrock B450m Pro4 for a bit less and it's a solid board. The case is OK, you might also check out DIYPC F2 which has pretty good airflow out of the box.
