    So I want to build a computer that can play all round games.

    The build I currently have is:

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor
    Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE ATX AM4
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200
    Storage 1: Western Digital Blue 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
    Storage 2: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB GAMING OC
    Case: Corsair iCUE 465X RGB ATX Mid Tower Case
    Power Supply: Super Flower Leadex III Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX

    Would a Ryzen 5 3600 be enough power? or should I be looking at the 3700? There appears to be a big price difference of over £130.00 at present so unsure if it would be value for money?

    What kind of games will you want to play and at what resolution? Your current system seems pretty solid tbh

    Just light gaming and at 1440p, I can't see needing anything higher :)
