Is this good? Or should I change something?

Hey,
The Specs:
Ryzen 7 3700x
MSI X570 Gaming Edge Wifi
Power Color Red Devil Rx 5700 XT
32 Gb Trident Z Cl 16 Dual Kit
550 Watt Seasonic Focus Plus 80+ Gold
Crucial P1 1000Gb

NZXT H500i

I know 32Gb of Ram is a lot, but I think I will need it.

IMHO,I would get at least a 650 Watt 80+ gold as a bare minimum since I won't want the PSU to restrict any future upgrades you might want to add along the way,also Ryzen 3700X runs very hot & you will want nothing less than a decent 360 AIO to cool it

Are you sure about the cooler? I will not overclock my CPU, and I dont have the money for a 360mm AIO

Are you serious?An ID Cooling Auraflow 360 cost about CAD$105 shipped,I am talking about Ryzen 3700X stock settings with only ram oc from 3200mhz to 3600mhz & it idles at 50-60c & up to 95c Prime95.If you like your cpu to run at this temps,go right ahead & skimp on cpu cooling

I'm with Biff a stronger psu and cooler would go along way. The CPU will throttle down the hotter it gets as well better overall temps would give better performance in long run.

PSU is fine, but I would personally go for the 650w version for some extra headroom.

I would opt for a GPU brand with better RMA support in case anything was to go wrong with it...unless you are getting a great deal.

Crucial P1 and Intel 660p are very budget nvme ssd, and have performance accordingly. If you don't have the budget for a faster one, and are fine with it's limits, then it is fine...otherwise I would go to something a bit faster. Your call on this point.

Otherwise build looks good!

Samsung 970 pro should be the best nvme SSD out there, I had ryzen 3700x for 3 days & I hate how hot it gets, in fact I will reccommend a custom loop if using 3700x

It’s always nice to go big, but those are some expensive changes over the OP. The 970 pro would be 2-3 times the cost and custom water would add...a lot.

True, I can reccommend a cheap, but reliable ssd:Lexar NS100 sata ssd 256gb Cad$44,Lexar NM100 256GB Cad$58 or Kingston or Transcend have 1tb ssd that's priced at cad$160-170.I know custom water is costly, that's why I recommended a reasonably priced AIO, given how hot 3700x runs, a 360 AIO is a must for good temperatures & the cpu to be able to last.

just get a Noctua cooler or dark rock no need for water on the 3700x or 3900x IMHO. Unless you live somewhere super hot then water may be needed but I have heard there stock wraith prism will do ok, not great but ok

edit BIFF if your seeing those kinda temps with a 3700x it's a bad mount or just not a good cooler maybe you ambient temps are super high. my 3900x doesn't even come close to those temps under prime95 mind you this is on a nh-D15
