If that's 3000 or 3200 you should be "okay".

So many different GPU SKU's how do u even choose!


Name brand, which is pretty much personal preference. Clock speeds can be different which means slightly different performance, heat, power draw. And different coolers. Some websites do comparisons.
Hey, how come my two cents is only worth like a half a cent?

Return that cpu cooler. It's a pain in the ass to install. It'll probably ruin your first time building experience. I bled and stripped a screw/nut installing the damn thing...it still felt like it was on there securely though, so I just left it as is and moved on.

What makes ram good/bad? My understanding so far has kind of been ram is ram and that no more than 16gb is needed.

I guess I'll find out about the PSU!

That's pretty true. Although some motherboards can hate some RAM but that's pretty rare. I believe most motherboard manufacturers list compatible ram sticks for their boards somewhere on their website. Realistically the problem you might come across is receiving a dead stick. That does happen from time to time. So buy from a reputable online store with a good return policy.

As for what RAM stick you should get? Most people just recommend buying the cheapest 16GB (8 x 2) kit that you can find. Company wise, even some of those smaller companies you've never heard of tend to put out RAM that works fine. So if partpicker is listing it then it's probably ok. As for RAM speed? Your board is going to run it at 2133 unless you overclock it. On a Ryzen board that may mean updating the firmware, which I guess you should do anyways. There's honestly not a huge performance gain between 2133 and 3000 ram. It's questionable if you'd even notice a difference without the use of benchmarks or an FPS counter. If you want to buy 2133 and funnel that money into something else then you'll be fine.

If you buy 2133 RAM I will come through the monitor and kill your first born. Don't trust some random guy who posted a video from Linus, actually trust someone who has thoroughly tested Ryzen and has regularly posted on this board for the past 9 years.

How about the TC takes advice from the guy who works in the tech industry (Linus) and not someone who's biggest claim to fame is trolling the back ass end of a message board for 9 years? Does anyone here think that Judgmenl has tested more Ryzen products than Linus? Get real.
