Uhm... I'm just going to say you made a few (actually a lot) mistakes... 1. So, first of all, you should've gotten a Ryzen 3 1200, because if overclocked, can do as good as a 1300X. 2. CPU isn't the most important thing, and you won't lose too many frames with an R3 1200 (maybe 1-2). 3. That motherboard is about £30 too expensive, there is almost no difference with lower end full ATX B350 boards, except for maybe RGB, useless features, and bios.

So just with CPU and Mobo, you could have saved around £50.

  1. Don't go with brand name stuff... I just realized you probably picked the Mobo, Case, PSU and Ram based on big brands. That ram is much too expensive for what it's speed. You should get AT LEAST DDR4-3000 for Ryzen Chips, since infinity fabric speed relies solely on Ram Speed. So you should've gotten a kit for around the same price for cheaper such as this: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/wQmxFT/team-vulcan-8gb-2-x-4gb-ddr4-3000-memory- tlgd48g3000hc16cdc01 or if brand names matter pick one from here: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/memory/#Z=8192002&s=403000,403200&sort=price You can actually gain quite a few frames with high speed ram with Ryzen.
  2. That Graphics Card is quite weak (very), so with that extra 50 - 60 quid, you could've went for a 1050 ti, which is much, much better than an RX 560.
  3. The case is very expensive at this price point, you could've saved about £30 more if you went with a lower end case.
  4. Also for the PSU, you could've went with the cooler master masterwatt 550+, it's 80+ (bronze I believe), and it's semi-modular. That could've saved you about a tenner (£10).

Conclusion: If you followed all my advice, you could've saved around £100, and gotten yourself an R3 1200 with a GTX 1060 (3GB), which would be AT LEAST ~30 frames more. But that's a big underestimation. So next time you build a PC, or upgrade this one, keep my tips in mind :)!
