Better than anyone, he knows the resolution and graphic settings he wants to play. The job here is just trying to provide what we think is best for the budget the OP requested.
Here, you are comparing a mobile cpu chip with a desktop cpu. TDP 35w vs 125w. Base clock 2.5ghz vs 4.0ghz.
Actually I was not expecting that i3M to hold its grounds that good even comparing to a Piledriver.
Maybe something like this.

Better of both worlds, compromising with some budget components, but still reliable.
Gigabyte GAMING OC
For a 3900x+2080ti combo, I think is pretty balanced and a great build.
My only and personal changes would be to change the cooler for the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 (25$ more) and change the 2080ti model for a same $ but triple fan, like the gaming oc or winforce gigabyte models.
For 30$ more you can drop here a cooler or switch for a 2070 GPU.
I would go for the 2x8gb kit options to take advantage of dual channel.
If we are talking about 4 ram slots motherboads like all atx sized, you'll still be able to upgrade and if the build is game oriented, with 2x8gb you will not fell the need to upgrade in a near future for sure.
What country? Usually the Corsair Vengeance LPX are well valued in all markets too.
Check the return policy.
"For some unexpected reason you need to move and you had your priorities changed" lol
In my opinion,
Too expensive that CPU.
Overpriced NVME and GPU. For 20$ more you can buy a 2070. Or you can pay way less for a similar performance 2060.
Personally, I would not "drive" a 2560x1440 144 Hz monitor with less than a 2070.
Well, you were.
Maybe, the best for you to understand is to see a similar system. I bet some of these components like the keyboard, motherboard and even fan are better than what they sell.
But thats not the direct conversion. It would be awesome for us Europeans. a 100$ component, here in Europe, you usually buy the same for more. Test it. Make a USD list and do the exact same components in the German stores. You'll be surprised. For notice, this recent world crises for what I can see in prices are favoring us a bit comparing to 2/3 months ago. (comparing to USA)
For that budget it will be around of what I showed you. I still have margin to use a case at you choice.
If you want to go cheaper, you can try the 3600+1660Super combo. Good combination too.
I will let you with a German list for now. Hope it helps.
You reference country will probably be Germany right?
The best you can do is set a budget to get the proper advice from everyone
Well, from what country are you from? Can be quite different in prices from USA to Europe.
I just used the same budget you did to choose the parts. the thought was, what is the best I can have for the money I have :)
For the price that P1 is good enough, don't worry. For the tasks you need it too do, you will not notice any difference comparing with a 200$ drive.
Taking into account you saying " office pc and gaming here or there", I took out the HDD for now. 1tb will be plenty for quite some games and office stuff. Doing that allowed me to improve the overall performance. You can add a HDD later if needed.
I'm sorry, you are right about the cores.
The base clock as you say is 0.3ghz more, and what I was trying to say is that in this CPUs generation you cant squeeze significantly from OCing, and with that people don't go to AMDs CPUs with the intent to OC. The truth is that this CPUs boost clocks do a very good job of getting the most of its capabilities.
The small margin you see, its the small diference about them. With that, the TDP of the 3700x is only 65w, against 3800x 105w. Good plus here.
In my opinion its not worth to pay the 40$ difference.
You have the part list private.
Does buying the x570 one have impact on your budget?
If its the same for you, go with that. Its newer and better.
All depends of what are you going to use it the most.
You'll be gaining more cores with the 3800x that are good for productivity for instance. On the other hand you'll not have any diference gaming wise.
About Oc'ing, this CPU's "era" don't have any really advantage in that regard, very small margin to gain. The boost they have from fabric will mostly do a better job than manually OC.
To use the internal connectors you need something like this.
2 Ports USB 3.0 Female Back Panel or 4 Port USB A Female Slot Plate Adapter
You just need to see what you have and what you want, and buy accordingly.
You can use something like THIS.
I'm 26$ overbudget. That let me fit a 2070, 1080p 165hz monitor and a solid MAX motherboard, without compromising the other parts.
Hope it Helps!
Nope. You can't use an Intel socket in a AM4 AMD one.
Follow the advice from test19 and you'll be perfectly fine.
You want the best you can get for 1200$ that includes PC+keyboard+monitor. Right?
Do you need mouse too, or O.S.?
What are the specs of you current PC?
The first thought was... Damn, those Australians prices...
The second was... Even being possible to work well with that 450w PSU, I'd increase to a 550w, and would change the MB to a Mortar MAX for 30aus more.
Despite that, its well balanced in my opinion.
When Ingame, check how much % are you using from GPU, CPU and RAM.
you should run those games fine at medium settings. Even Warzones.
More important, what resolution do you play?
Completely overpriced 250gb nvme drive. There is no need to spend that much even for a 512gb drive.
A 2070 Super can be bought for less than that "normal" 2070.
That 750w PSU, while very reliable, there is no need for that much wattage for the system, a 550/600w psu it will fit perfectly, and can save you some money.
That 1080p 75hz monitor is limiting your fps to much. A combo (CPU+GPU) like that needs a 1080p 144hz to be free (lol).
This are my thoughts :)
Like ImperiousBattlestar said, you could do way better with that budget.
But in my opinion you are already "blocked" by the GPU you bought, because for that budget you could do a lot better. Building around that GPU will just make you spend money without a particular gaming improvement. I would sell it, and with those 120/140$ more the story will be completely different =)
Have you check all this basic stuff?
Adding a SSD to run the windows in it will improve your experience a lot, everything will be more quicker, outside gaming.
Do you fell the need to have more fps's and sharpness in the games you play?
For that you'll need to add a dedicated GPU, should be enough seeing that you play with an igpu now. To complete the "transition" a CPU upgrade would be good.
Well, adding more storage will not improve in the way you are hopping for. You will just have more... if you have that ssd close to full, fell free to had more.
The problem in what you listed is the CPU. that rx580 is perfectly capable of running CS GO with good frames. (Assuming you are playing 1080p or less)
The better you can do is tell us a number ($) of what how much you are comfortably spending, and i'm sure you are going to be well guided from there.
List all the system specs plz.
Doesn't lose in any of those =)
Keeping most of your preferences. Same Performance. 450$ less. Even with that completely overpriced case. It still could be cheaper while keeping the same performance.
I'm going to help you help the other users.
You are listing this...
Country, budget, O.S. or any peripherals needed?
You'll be fine and learn a lot from the experience.
That error code seems to be always related to the GPU or the lack of it.
Do you have you gpu power cable connected?
First of all, you should list your system specs.
If you really want to upgrade, my advice is to go for 1080p 144hz.
All dependes on the games you play, but for most of all the new games out there, your gpu will not push a 1440p 60hz smoothly.
If it is W10 you can simply reset your PC.

Hope it Helps!
Ireland and Finland usually are quite expensive to, check it.
I'm sorry, I just used the conversion google gave me.
I can believe that. You have Kuna in a "European Space", it was condemned to happen those situations.
My curiosity made me search some examples of that. Saw the R5 3600 in your hgshop (first i found) for 1.684,41 hrk what makes the direct conversion 224,81€.
I'm from Portugal, the cheapest stores have it for ~180€. Last week they were at ~175ish actually.
It's a big difference really.
That would be going for the B450 realm, and that was not the point of my initial comment/suggestion.
And yes, here in Europe almost every component is more expensive, in a complete build makes all the difference in the final price.
Would be awesome if it were simply a $->€ conversion
Because for that we will be adding more 42$, making it 122$ over budget.
Thank you for the opinion.
Everyone on there side is working on that, and those problems can be avoided by using older version of those drivers. People can still enjoy this price/performance.
Nowadays that sentence looks like one commandment or is written in the bible =)
Atx+x570+wifi "same or lower budget"?
Don't forget I started above with "Just to give you the option of x570 + 5700xt for 80$ more."
I don't know why, but these days every "helper" that reads, "1200$ budget for gaming", assumes that will be some extreme overclock involved and the person will probably end up a state of art designer, architect or scientist.
Well, I just gave my opinion, I already know that you don't agree. Lets stop here =)
It can handle a 3950x stock. That kind of "accusations" are for other kind of budgets.
well... you are.
In 2020 doesn't make sense to buy a 2 core cpu and state that is for gaming.
I'll be better with the Ryzen 3 1200 (4cores) for 15$ more (to keep with that low budget).
Just to give you the option of x570 + 5700xt for 80$ more. Your ready for the now and the future. I'll be fine with the stock cooler until you save for one. With that in place you'll have a complete and awesome machine.
