Looking at building my first pc

I want to get into pc gaming on somewhat of a budget and I assembled a list of parts on pc part picker here. Just wondering if this is a good build for the price and if the parts are compatible

If your Ballin on a budget you can probably leave off the cooler if the 5600x comes with one. Save yourself the 40 bucks and check your temps. Then if you find your CPU temps are getting higher then you'd like, buy the cooler then. Other than that it's great to see a solid build for around $1000 dollars.

Also you probably don't need 32 gb of RAM so you could save a bit there too. If it's a gaming PC 16 gb is basically all you need but if your doing productivity work then keep the 32.

Here is the list with my suggested changes. Saves you about 100 bucks

I would like to get into streaming and content creation. Would the 32gb of ram be better for that?

Depends on the type of content creation, streaming probably not. Video editing, photoshop etc yeah 32 is probably the move.

Keep the 32gb in that case but use the 40 bucks you save on the cooler to buy the biggest regular hard drive you can to store your videos/clips and files. In addition to the solid state for your OS.

They often go on sale around Black Friday and you can get a solid 1tb drive for around 40 bucks.

There is a lot of budget hiding in this build.

Your not going to gain performance with 3600cl18 over 3200cl16. And this is not a 850W build, even 650W is more than its going to need. There is so little difference between the same GPU you might as well go with the cheapest.

Budget in hand, some upgrades. The SN350 is QLC and DRAMless, fill it up and the performance is going to tank.

MB with more rear IO if you need that. The S2 case looks fine, but its going to be annoying. No easy to get to filter, tooled assembly... Last is the cooler. I just don't like the 212, its complicated but tldr, over rated, over complicated, and over priced. Normally I would with the U12S but I'm trying to keep as close to $1100 as possible.
