No intents of OC whatsoever. But I'm gonna use 3 monitors (for work). Won't it stress GPU too much for this PSU?

I misunderstood seller, it has been actually used continuously since 2017, when it was bought. I think I will try and bid it, but idk if to return 580 already.

I'd love to, but it's considerably more expensive, especially given that 4GB was discounted to the price of RX 570 (which I later discovered is almost the same card as 580).

580 is on sale for ~$170, almost the same price as 570. 1650S is for ~$220, all of them with 4GB. I won't be playing a lot, I just want it be reliable.

Yeah, they look mostly the same, you're right. Aobut RAM I thought that I can lower overall price by buying PRO MAX, and sticking less expensive stick in there, but I'm not able to find ones to fit this idea. I guess I will go with this set.

Ok, so 2x8. TBH I don't get Dual and single channels, but it's a matter of some research I guess.

Thanks for your responses, it helped me a lot.

Ok, so I think I'll stick with Corsair, especially given better CL.

And now I get what "Ryzens love fast RAM" is all about.

Thanks for complex response, it helped a lot.

Ok, found two candidates. One is Corsair Vengeance @ 3000 MHz CL15 nad the other is ADATA Gammix @ 3000MHz CL16. I think ADATA is more reliable, but is more expensive (a little bit) so I will stick to Corsair.

Also, found weird situation. I found out that single-stick 16GB versions of these memories are actually cheaper than two 8GB (sold in sets). Wouldn't it be better to take just one stick to leave more space for upgrades?

And I found verision of Corsair Vengeance with same CL15 but... @3200 MHz. But it's not on the list, even despite slower version is. Worth the shot or keep it safe?

Ok, I've seen this, so I'll try and pick something from that list. But according to the rumor I've heard - does fast RAM really has that much impact on the Ryzen's efficiency or is it glorified 1%?

And about supported memory - I am confused about QVL. My memory isn't there (it's only for 4GB Patriot), but I looked at G.Skill and there are two of them, marked as 8 GB module, which would be neat for me (as I am aiming at 16GB), but serial number indicates 32 GB set of those (4x8GB). Technically those are still the same modules, but twice as much, and serial number differs. It wouldn't concern me if there would be just for one set per model, but there is 64GB set listed (4x16GB) as well. What does it mean?

Multi monitor gaming won't be my target in long Time. I am going to use Multi monitor mainly for work, programming and simple 3D modelling

Thanks. Will 4GB RX 570 do? What will be the difference with lacking 4GB of VRAM?

PowerColor seems to have more negative reviews that XFX.

So everything is built on top of B450M DS3H motherboard, which does have M.2 port, as the specification states. I have option to buy Crucial P1 1TB drive for ~$110, is it worth it? EDIT: I am getting lost, because on website it's name is M.2 PCIe NVMe P1 SSD... So, into which port will it go eventually?

Okay, so what will be best port to connect storage with? NVMe or SATA?

And is it recommended to have one disk for everything, or is it better to have two physically separate ones, one for system and other for data?

Ok, so I've just watched some guy put together PC for ~$250 with Ryzen 3 1200G with 8GB RAM and RX 570 and was able to run BF V on Ultra with 60 FPS. I think I don't need more than that, so I'll probably save some money, invest in old good RX 570 and be happy with it.

Sure. So when it comes to gaming I mostly play FPS, but not always newest gen - my favorite games are BF4 and COD 4: MW, maybe with newest COD taken into consideration. Sometimes I play Witcher 3 and will play Cyberpunk 2077 when it will come out. Sometimes play other games, but mainly those. About modelling - when I think about it, it won't be as much, mostly simple parts for 3D printing, maybe some models for my major thesis, but nothing spectacular. I sometimes render a movie, but it seems more like CPU's work. Currently my build is based on Ryzen 5 3600, available under this link (not prepared by me, from what I've picked only processor left): https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JNpDcq The only "but" I have for this set is graphic card - because I'm not sure I will need it as much, to spend $500 on it.

I doubt I will be in need of multi monitor gaming, but if I would feel such need, then where should I head to? GTX 1080?

Mostly 3D printing models, with occasional Blender usage, but not extreme one. Also, I forgot to mention, that I am aiming at multi-screen (up to 3), if it has any input into decision.

Currently C++ and OpenGL programming in Visual Studio, may vary in future.

Thanks @Zerk2012 Isn't RTX a little too pricey for the power it has? Wouldn't it be better to buy 1070-Ti?
