Hey guys and gals,

I'm looking for some advice over here. I'm ready to purchase parts for my pc.

This is the PC Part Picker list I've made of what I'm looking at:
https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/gmPhQV

What are your opinions? I'm honestly just trying to get my PC running for as cheap as possible but with an AMD Ryzen 5 1500x. The mobo I picked just because the jump from shit to that was only a couple dollars. All I need is CPU, Mobo, Memory. Let me know what you think. I'm going to be buying this stuff asap.

your cpu comes with a really good cooler. unless you just wanted something different and people are willing to pay for the wraith cooler that comes for your cpu.

I've never bought a new CPU before. I wasn't sure if it came with a cooler. But that's cool. That saves a couple more dollars. I don't need a different one. Maybe if I oc down the road. But not for now.

If you can squeeze out the extra money for the Ryzen 1600, you would see much greater performance. The 1600 also comes with the Ryzen wraith cooler anyway, so the price difference is literally only a few more dollars for 4 more threads:

Ninjaedit: The spire can also overclock decently well. Not pushing the chip's edge but it can remain at a decent temperature with it.

So, I put a deposit on the bundle Jero posted. They said it will be here in about a week. RAM will be next day when I order it early next week.

Also, I ordered my cpu/mobo. It had to come from a non-local warehouse.

I might just have to spend the extra $50 to get something in stock that's decent. I'll wait until my other stuff comes in though.
