Thanks, Dasa!  Invaluable for folks like me who barely know which end of a RAM goes in the slot.

 

BTW: Cases is already plural, and neither that nor "Fan" need the apostrophe.  Or was that intentional?

added a new build

AMD Gamer Updated 14/04/2017
CPU Ryzen 5 1600 3.2-3.6GHz 6\12 Core\Thread $319
MB ASUS Prime X370 Pro $228
RAM 3000c15\3200c16 2x8 16GB $159
GPU RX480 8GB $339 -OR- GTX 1070 8GB $548 -OR- GTX1080 8GB $699 -OR- GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition 11GB $999
SSD Crucial MX300 525GB $195
PSU XFX TS Series Gold 650W 5Y $129
CASE Deepcool Kendomen $63
HSF Noctua NH-D15 $115 Optional
TOTAL $1438-2213

 

updated it with faster ram as a option F4-3733C17D-16GTZA $243

the mb obviously cant handle 3733 but its one of the cheaper samsung b die kits available in au which oc well on amd systems and has a better chance of hitting 3200 stable than the corsair kit

for the extra $100 you could get a 8 core ryzen 1700 but for most current games the ram speed matters more than the extra cores

there has just been a bios released for ASUS Prime X370 Pro that seems to be helping with memory stability at higher speeds

 

performance wise amd 1600 trades blows with the 7600k

obviously the 7600k wins in any games without decent threading and the 1600 has a fair advantage in games that can make good use of more than 4 cores

 

edit

still looking at mb options its a bit of a minefield at the moment with no perfect option all have there gremlins still largely bios related

 

ASRock AB350 Pro 4 $129 cheap with decent features and some reports of select ram kits hitting 2933

Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 $159 seems to have a small selection of 3000\3200 ram kits supported which is more than most in its price range

Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming 3 $159 has alc 1220 audio but its ram qvl list is all but nonexistent however there is a few reports of improved results with the latest bios

Some of the stuff I'm reading for Ryzen is suggesting 1600 specifically because the included HSF is 'good enough'.  If you're going to go all out with a D15, would it be better to go for the 1600x?

should probably add samsung 960 evo 500g as a option at $320

only left it out as i was originally thinking the build was more value orientated

 

1600x is ~10% faster for somebody that doesnt want to oc but for somebody that does oc the difference is very small

for some both reach 4ghz for others the 1600x hits 4.1ghz

i should probably mention that the stock cooler is good enough to oc the 1600 and the hsf is just to squeeze a little more at a lower noise level

 

if anything i should probably remove the X370 mb from the build as they don't seem to be worth the extra over b350

 

corsairs new tx psu look like good value to with 7y warranty

 

au $ has gained strength lately but all prices have gone up regardless :(

Pretty much what Dasa said. When you buy an X model.. you know that you're getting a higher binned part - silicon that tested better - but it seems both will reach the same overclocking limit anyway.

The Corsair M.2 offerings are just shy of the Samsung's performance but cheaper with smaller sizes. I'n my opinion... you're only running M.2 for the OS anyhow right?


R5 1600 vs 7800X just FYI
