Did some looking and made my list....

B450 tomahawk board, amd 2600x, patriot memory (2x8 3600) gigabyte 1660 graphics, wraith cooler (found new on Facebook for $20 local) 550w psu, and the fractal meshify case....any thought? I’m no pro gamer I just want decent performance to play new stuff

Doesn't the 2600X come with a Wraith Spire?

I picked up the wraith prism (spire is a basic heat sink whereas the prism has the much taller sink with copper tubes going through it. Supposedly lowers temps by 10 degrees in some cases

This is the wrong place for an opinion... Isn't the meshify $90? You could get a cheaper case and get a 1660 super/ti...

Sorry new to the site. Was mainly looking at case air flow. Not sure though

TBH with lower budget builds I wouldn't be so concerned with airflow because the parts don't generate so much heat.

I appreciate the input because I really do tend to overthink things especially if it’s not needed

Not yet. I keep finding myself making revisions based on budget then it totally spaced the operating system
