Looking for abit of advice on the best value for money PC build.
Currently looking at something like:
Ryzen 7 2700 or ryzen 5 2600
16-32gb ram(not sure of brand etc?)
Gtx1060 6gb
200-500gb ssd plus a 2tb hdd


The ram and hdd are the easy part, value for money wise would the gtx1060 be a good option? And the ryzen 5 or 7?

GTX1060 would be fine for 1080p, all about the resolution really. If you have a 4K monitor it's different story

Didn't AMD just announce some new Ryzen chips? might pay to wait until they come out

Not sure if you are looking for bnew, but looking at TM https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2192363974 on a new case would save you about $500?

Highly recommended you wait for Ryzen 3000 to release in July before making purchases, if nothing else it should cause current gen CPU prices to drop.
