Also for the case you wrote H500, make sure its MasterCase H500 ARGB or as it named on your store RGB. the original H500 is shit, stay away from it and make sure you buy the correct model with the mesh front :emoji28:
This is the one you want https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/ca ... h500-argb/ with both Mesh & Transparent Front Panel
Oh my damn god why can't they just do both with mesh and transparent panels and stop confusing me lol. Got it.
That MSI 5700XT has a custom PCB as far as i know. It doesn't need 750W PSU, thats bullshit. 5700XT's on air pull up to 220W. You will be fine with 650W PSU. If the MSI one is cheaper you can get that one then.
I had MSI cards and they are surprisingly quiet and run cool, this one also no exception.
Well the specs on that page say minimum system supply 750W so I wonder. The powercolor one said 650W minimum so I don't know. It also says it uses like 200 something W there so I don't know. MSI page doesn't say about minimum system supply so thats good. Read a bit online and had people say 500W is not enough but 650W should be fine. So there we go.

So it is:
AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 190€
MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX 120€
PowerColor Radeon (maybe Red Devil maybe not) RX 5700 XT 8GB 380€ or 430€
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 2x8GB 90€
WD Blue SN550 SSD 500GB NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 3 90€
EVGA BQ 650W 80 Plus Bronze Modular 75€ OR Corsair RM650 650W 80 Plus Gold 95€
Fractal Design Focus G Mid Tower or CoolerMaster MasterCase H500 RGB with the mesh thingy - 75€ or 100€
TOTAL 1015€ or 1110€

Story behind million H500 models are, CoolerMaster released H500, then GamersNexus did a review and slammed that case to shit cause of bad design and crap airflow. They did a mod with a mesh front and the case performance increased by a lot. After that video CoolerMaster started releasing different versions of H500 with mesh front and so on. Also more case manufactures started to at least try to make better cases with better intakes and better airflow, cause before all it was looks, and screw the performance.

5700XT is 5700XT, on air 220W max give or take few watts, if you water cool, or use LN2 and OC, yes, it can pull way more than that.

You don't need 750W PSU unless you're running something stupid like those power hungry intel CPU's that pull fuck knows how much and are overclocking.

650W for your system is fine.

Well then calling it something like H550 might have been a better idea lol but yeah thanks for the history lesson :emoji23:

Alright, perfect then. 650W it is.

i think CM went the "can't fool them - confuse them" route after original H500 was a flop

https://www.pccomponentes.com/wd-black- ... or-termico found an SN750 for 20€ more.

EDIT: Removed the WD blue I just posted. Was a 1TB non NVMe so not worth it. There's that

what do you mean? i see a black series 500GB NVMe in the link.

if you want more storage, you can get a normal M.2 drive that's not NVMe but is 1TB instead of 500GB NVMe. Normal SATA M.2 is slower than NVMe, but its faster than any HDD, so its plenty of speed and double the storage

Was dumb and posted, together with thr black series, a blue non nvme one like omg look at this price with it being an NVMe... and it wasnt.

Will I feel much difference between NVMe or not? So as to get an M.2 1TB

in everyday use you wont feel much of a difference. if you constantly copy massive files then NVMe will be faster, but browsing internet, playing games you wont feel much if any difference

Right makes sense. I do work with Cameras and whatnot for video and crap but tbh I don't mind waiting for stuff to copy. The 500MB/s vs 3000MB/s is a huge difference though between M.2 blue and NVMe Black so I was just wondering.
