Gday Dimisgr  :welcome: 

Please answer a few questions so we can then help you.

What will be the main use for the computer, gaming? General purpose like browsing, streaming videos? office work?  or more a workstation, photo/video editing.?

Do you already have an operating system, Windows? if yes, what type of licence, OEM or retail?

 

I will start a parts list on CPP.  please give the full name of your MB as I may not have the correct one. .

You cant choose a PSU until you know what GPU you will be getting so be sure to check with iammykyl that all parts on your list are appropriate.

 

GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER vs Radeon RX 5600 vs Radeon RX 5500

Thanks for your always welcome input and GPU links.

================================================

 

Dimsger.

You need to find the BIOS version that the MB shipped with as you may need to perform a BIOS update.

Perhaps I misunderstood you.   Have you already completed your build?

Sorry for my bad explanation well I just have bought the Mainboard, CPU and the CPU Cooler. The only thing i didnt bought yet is the GPU I saw many reviews about some graphics card 

on the YT but i still cant decide which one is the most suitable.I am beetween the Radeon RX 5600, 5500 or a GTX 1660 Super but there are some extra models and cant decide thats why I posted here a Topic to ask the pros :D  . The graphic card  which I have right now (R9 280)  is still good for the games i play like cs go.  

Dont know if this is a good card: https://www.ebay.de/itm/6GB-ASUS-DUAL-RX5600XT-T6G-EVO-Dual-Radeon-RX-5600-XT-Top-Evo/203054355346?epid=9042455235&hash=item2f46fb9392:g:QMMAAOSw~XNfFqfa 

 

or this:

Thanks, I now understand.  

 

Before selecting a GPU, you need this hardware. wenn Sie ein begrenztes Budget haben, Sie eine GPU auswählen, benötigen Sie diese Hardware.

 

Compatible RAM, (memory)

Computer case.

 

Then after the GPU selection, a PSU of the correct wattage.

 

You may also need a new OS.    Please search for OEM licence installation.
