Hi!

I`m searching for parts to build a gaming PC (this is my first time) and I am very scared of all compatibility issues. Here is my list:
CASE: NZXT S340

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600

PSU: Corsair CX550M

HDD: WD Blue (WD10EZEX) 1TB

GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GB GDDR5 Windforce 2x (GV-N1060WF2OC-6GD)

RAM: Corsair CMK16GX4M2A2400C16 (2x 8GB)

MOBO: ASRock AB350 Pro 4

Since I know very little about compatibility, I would like you to check, if everything is OK or recommend different parts (I checked a little, and I think CPU and RAM are compatible, but I am not sure about GPU). Also, does SSD really make everything much faster (I am on a budget, so I try to spend as little as possible).

Thank you all for answers!

No you are fine but I would change the brand of the PSU, Corsair has been hit or miss.

I would go with a EVGA one as they are supposed to have good warranties.

 

Otherwise you are fine, you dont really need higher wattage.

And yeah skip on a SSD for now, SSD prices are rather high right now if you want space.

Sure SSD's are better but they have a high cost to them right now.

I would say get a different GPU like a AMD RX 580 there is a huge supply issue with them being sold out everywhere so a GTX1060 will do

Thanks for your answer!

 

So is EVGA 600B Bronze better power supply?

I really didn`t get what you meant with GPU. I`ve seen that the prices are increasing somewhere, but did you mean to tell me to get 1060 or rx 580?

That EVGA is not much better but OK if you don't have enough money for 80+ gold part.

I'd also go with RX580 but it's currently sold out so GTX1060 because it's available.

So how much should I pay for a decent power supply?

be quiet! Pure Power 10 600w is 80+ (does 80+ means a better psu?)

I`m searching for parts to build a gaming PC (this is my first time) and I am very scared of all compatibility issues.

Next time, use pcpartpicker.com, there you can enter all of the parts you're going to use and check their compatibility (The site will check automatically, though sometimes there's missing information for specific parts)

I made a list for you on there, you can just add more parts if you want: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jHCXzM

In any case you are still in good shape just dont go too cheap on the PSU.

EVGA, Seasonic, FSP all usually make great PSU's

 

Also use the tier list:

 

https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/

 

Anything above tier 4 is acceptable

 

The PSU tier list is normally composed of various PSU's rated by quality and build.

 

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

 

My PSU is for example a tier 2, more than stable and feasible enough for overclocking without making things light up like the 4th of July.

I would change the PSU to Seasonic made. Some Corsair models are Seasonic made but not the CX series. This site can help you pick a good model. I would go for makes like Seasonic, Super Flower and Delta.

 

Reason for a good PSU is clean power and power outage protection. I have a Seasonic in my i5 system and it done saved my system a couple of times already. It shuts down quick at a slight hiccup in the electricity.
