AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
|BASE CLOCK ||3.8 GHz|
|BOOST CLOCK ||4.7 GHz|
Before releasing Zen3 processors, the Ryzen 3000 series processors were the option to be considered with new generation graphics cards. Though AMD again brings something new for their users, the Zen3 processors are much more potent than the previous generation while it comes at the same price while making them considerable for the latest builds.
With Intel processors, you have to get a new motherboard with next generation, but that’s not the case with the AMD CPUs. As the company promised that older motherboards would support the newer processors, they fulfilled their processor, and you can pair the Ryzen 5000 series CPUs with most of the AMD AMD4 socket motherboard. Still, the recommended ones are X570 or B550 because of PCIe Gen4 support.
The processor I would recommend you for this build is the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, one of the best value processor of Zen3. There is a myth that AMD processors don’t perform well with Nvidia graphics cards or Intel CPUs don’t do well with AMD graphics cards. It’s just a myth, and they all perform well with each other however having an AMD CPU and graphics card can give you a slight performance difference.
In my opinion, AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is way better than the Intel alternatives as it supports overclocking and you don’t need high-end motherboards or aftermarket coolers to overclock it. When it comes to the performance, this processor is comparable to the Intel i9 10900K somewhere, but that processor has a slight performance advantage.
This processor’s base clock is 3.8 GHz, and you can easily take it up to 4.7 GHz with some good aftermarket cooler and will enjoy its performance. In Zen3 architecture, AMD redesigned the core design, and now each core has better access to the cache memory, which makes these processors much better than the predecessors.
Long story short AMD Zen3 processors are the game changers, and with graphics card like RX 6800, these CPUs makes a perfect performance match. Though you are looking for something else for this build there, we’ve also got a guide on the best CPU for RX 6800 where you will found a lot of choices to consider for your upcoming build.

B550 motherboards are comparatively better than X570 because they got more number of ports and features the better overclocking potential to the latest processors. Another reason to consider these motherboards is their low price as x570 chipset boards are expensive, especially the premium models while you can get some good mid-range B series board under 150-300 USD. For this builds, we’ve picked the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F which is a cost-effective alternative of Rog Strix B550-E with the same set of features. The core features of this motherboard are two M.2 slots from which the top one runs at PCIe Gen4 interface while the bottom one at Gen3. This board has everything including the two PCIe x16 slots, PCIe x1 slots, USB 3.2 Gen2 ports including both Type-A and Type-C and decent power delivery. The Intel 2.5G NIC and Wi-Fi 6 motherboard makes it much more premium as all of them are also available in B550-E, which is the premium board. There is an all back colored PCB that gives this subtle motherboard looks and has integrated IO cover with ASUS ROG logo printed on it. Also, there are grey colored lines printed on this board diagonally. At this price range, this is one of the best motherboard for Ryzen 7 5800X to consider in 2021.

Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB
|MODEL ||Vengeance RGB Pro|
|CAPACITY ||32 GB|
|FREQUENCY ||3200 MHz|
Most of the time, it’s a bit hard to get both performance and aesthetics at the same place because the components that give fantastic looks mostly provide a second or third-tier performance. .The Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro is the best memory module we can consider for this build as it allows for best in class performance, supports significant overclocking and has premium looks. There are XMP setting profiles available for this module which gives a decent rating and of course excellent performance. There are RGB lights on this memory which are covered with white light diffusers and produces different effects. The lights on it are controllable through the Corsair software, or you can use any third-party software from ASUS, MSI or Gigabyte. The kit is very reasonably priced, but these modules don’t reach the DDR4 4000 rating. Also, which light diffusers on this module produces pastel color effects which seems terrible. Overall for its price, this is one of the best memory kits we can get for this build.
Corsair iCUE H115i RGB Pro XT
|MODEL ||iCUE H115i RGB Pro XT|
The iCUE H115i RGB XT is built while considering both high performance and low noise operation while usually, CPU coolers lack. As the name suggests, this cooler comes with RGB lights, but you need to know that it doesn’t have RGB fans, but the CPU block contains some RGB lights; however, the company reduced the manufacturing cost compromising too much on the overall looks. This cooler gives the competitors a hard time beating it in performance for the same price, and that’s the only reason I’ve picked up it for this build. The installation of this cooler is also straightforward, and you can fit it over any Intel or AMD processor socket; however, it’s not compatible with TR4 and similar workstation sockets. It’s compatible with Corsair iCUE software, which allows you to produce different RGB effects, and you can make them match the lights of your build. Overall it’s a great piece of product for this price, but it would be much better if it comes with RGB fans on the radiator. I’ve also noticed that the fan noise level was going a bit high when running the processor under high load. With Ryzen 9 5900X, this cooler will work flawlessly and allows you to overclock your processor at its full potential.
SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus SSD 2TB
|MODEL ||970 EVO Plus|
|READ/WRITE SPEED ||3500/3300 MB/s|
There was a time when solid-state drives are not very popular in the market, but these days, these drives have become a necessary component for every gaming build. In this gaming build, we will not use old HDDs because of the rotating parts and high loading time; instead, we will invest that money in the NVMe drive. There are a couple of options available, but I would recommend you to get the Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB drive. This SSD has everything, including reliable performance, excellent efficiency, and a low MSRP. The black-colored PCB of these drives matches most of the motherboards' color scheme and doesn’t affect the aesthetics of the build much. Overall it’s a great NVMe we can consider both our operating system and a few games.

While buying a computer case, you might’ve seen users going cheap because this is a computer system component that doesn’t affect the frame rates. Also, we’ve seen users considering the case upon their aesthetics while ignoring the other factors. We need to consider these things too, but they are not the only thing we need to consider while buying the best gaming case for modern builds. Firstly we’ve to look at the airflow in the case then the looks, and I’ve picked something that has both of them and its Cooler Master MasterCase H500. This case is designed while taking care of thermal performance and aesthetics during its operation on a minimal noise level. An RGB controller can use to produce different RGB effects with it, and the lightning, in this case, doesn’t need the motherboard’s support. The two 200mm fans on the front panel intake the air and cool down the components inside it. Price-wise this case is a bit expensive, but still, we managed it to get it for this build under the price mentioned. This casing requires two USB 3.0 headers on the motherboard or at least a single 20-pins splitter cable to run all four ports on the front panel.
Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 650W 80+ Gold
|MODEL ||Toughpower GF1 650W 80+ Gold|
|RATING ||80+ Gold|
|TYPE ||Full Modular|
Undoubtedly it’s one of the excellent power supply units you can get for this kind of build, but due to the US tariffs, this PSU price is disturbed, and it’s not well available in the US market. The reliable quality of this supply and the ten years of international warranty makes it more appealing to consider. Simultaneously, running at full load, the temperature of this PSU never exceeds 47-50 Degree Celcius. The fully modular supply allows you to do better cable management and not compromise on your build’s aesthetics. There is a Hydraulic bearing fan at the bottom of this PSU, which makes it cool down even under high loads. Overall it’s a great PSU that we can consider for this build; however, it would be much better if you manage to get in some deal.
