Hi everyone, I am planning to built a PC with the below mentioned parts since my budget is under $1500, and this is the best I am getting in the price range. I'll be using it to play Minecraft (with mods) and other games (PUBG, COD, Siege and Apex) once I get bored of that. Kindly review the parts and let me know if I could do better in the price range.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor
ID-COOLING SE-224-XT 76.16 CFM CPU Cooler
MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory
Crucial P1 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB VENTUS XS OC Video Card
Silverstone PS15 MicroATX Mid Tower Case
Cooler Master MWE Bronze V2 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
CRYORIG QF120 Silent 44 CFM 120 mm Fan

If you're actually in the US based off your profile, PSUs are still all over the place. That unit isn't worth 129 bucks, but this one's cheaper and more wattage. Neither of these are that great, but will safely get the job done.

Since you're going with the B550M already, just wait for a 5600x that will release November 5th.

This Noctua fan is also cheaper and better than the Cryorig mentioned.

Thanks for the great advice and yes you are right I should wait for 5600x. The current build is costing me around $1400 and with the replacement of B550M from 5600x will increase the cost but I think I can manage it.

Yea I was doing the math based on US prices, and linked the eVGA PSU to save a few bucks. Since you already had the B550 in your list, it made sense to allocate the extra 100 or so to the newer CPU. If previous launches are any indication and stock goes quick due to scalpers and bots, the 3600 is still a good choice if you don't want to wait. We know the 3060 is coming and will definitely be better than a 1660ti, but who knows how long it'll be before people can actually get their hands on one.

Something else to think about, the 5600XT is in the same price bracket.

I am going for 5600x I can wait that much. 3060's expected release date is January, 2021 I can not wait that long. 5600XT is also a good option, i am looking into it.
